How Do I Pick the Perfect Plant Gifts For Her?
We’ve shown you some amazing gifting options for her, but a larger question remains unanswered… “HOW” do I pick the perfect gift for her? Believe it or not, selecting the perfect plant gift for someone requires a thoughtful approach.
Here are some steps to help you choose the right plant gift for her:
Consider Her Preferences
Take your lady’s personal preferences into account. Does she have a favourite type of plant or flower? Does she have any specific colours or styles that she tends to gravitate towards in her home decor? It’s always a safe bet to try to choose a plant that aligns with her taste.
Assess the Space in Her Home or Workspace
Have a think about where she will place the plant. If she has limited space, opt for a smaller plant or one that can be hung or mounted on the wall. If your recipient has ample space, you can consider buying larger plants (like the Money Tree or Ficus Benjamina) or multiple plants (like one of our plant bundles) to create a lovely green focal point.
For many women, health is also a big concern. So, why not read Good Housekeeping’s article on the best plants to improve your indoor health? Take a look at some of the plants on the list, and think about which indoor plants may be a good gifting idea!
Evaluate Her Plant Caring Abilities:
Think about your recipient’s gardening experience. Is she an experienced plant caregiver or a beginner? If she’s new to plant care, then it’s wise to choose low-maintenance options like succulents (aloe vera), snake plants, or pothos.
If she happens to be an experienced gardener, you can explore a wider range of options. Anthuriums are always a great option as this indoor plant blooms during the growing season. There’s nothing better than a flowering plant as it grows!
Think About Aesthetics:
Having a think about the visible element of your plant gift is going to be vital when it comes to picking the perfect present! Plants come in various shapes, sizes, and colours. You should always consider how a plant’s appearance complements her home decor. If she has a minimalist or modern style, a sleek and simple plant (like the cast iron) might be more suitable. For a more rustic or bohemian style, you could choose a plant with a unique or colourful pot (like the Curved Stone Pot).
Choose a Special Occasion:
If you’re giving the plant for a specific occasion, like a birthday or anniversary, you can select a plant that symbolizes love, luck, or growth. For example, a peace lily is associated with peace and prosperity, making it a suitable choice for various occasions.
To enhance the gift, you can pair the plant with complementary accessories like a decorative pot, plant hangers, or watering cans. At Oxy-Plants, we even offer plant bundles for plant lovers. This takes all the stress away from picking the perfect plant gift! This way, buying the perfect gift for her is something you can do with ease!
