Houseplant supplies are a great gift for any plant lover, regardless of their experience level. Whether they’re just starting out or they’re a seasoned pro, there’s always a new and useful houseplant supply from our holiday gift guide that they can add to their collection.
Of course, you can always gift an actual plant for the holidays. That’s a wonderful gift in and of itself. If you’re looking for something else, though, these houseplant supplies would be excellent wrapped under the tree.
For those who may not have a lot of floor space, or if they have cats or dogs, hanging plants can be a lifesaver. These are nice cotton basket hangers, but they also have macrame, ceramic, metal, and even leather to choose from and relatively inexpensive.
A beautiful plant pot is a great way to dress up your plants and add a touch of style to your home. Be sure to pick a pot that is the right size for their plant and that complements their home decor. You might want to add a plant saucer to put under the pot to catch the water, too.
A propagation station is a beautiful way to show off the roots of propagating plants. These come in a variety of materials and sizes. You can also get a tabletop station or those to hang. You could also consider a plant propagation kit, which comes with everything needed to get started, including potting mix, rooting hormone, and plant pots.
These repotting mats are great for people with small spaces or those who can't get outside to repot their plants. Just quickly set up this thick, durable mat and it catches all the dirt. When done, simply fold up out of the way. This particular one is nice as it comes in two sizes.
A plant stand is a great way to display your plants and to save space on your shelves or countertops. Any true houseplant enthusiast can never have too many. There are many options to choose from, too, from some plant stands that hold one or a couple plants, to those that hold many.
A plant book is a great resource for any plant parent. It can provide information on how to care for different types of plants, how to troubleshoot problems, and more. We recommend Plantopedia: The Definitive Guide to Houseplants, because it's everything you need to know about every kind of houseplant.
No matter what your budget is or who you’re shopping for, if they’re into houseplants then there’s a perfect Christmas gift out there. Just get creative and have fun picking out the perfect gift for your loved ones.
Tips for Giving Houseplant Supplies for Christmas gifts
When you are choosing and getting ready to give houseplant supplies as a Christmas gift, keep in mind these tips:
Consider the recipient’s lifestyle and experience with plants. If they’re just starting out, they might need some basic supplies like a watering can and potting soil. If they’re an experienced plant parent, they might appreciate more advanced supplies like a plant mister or fertilizer.
Think about the recipient’s home decor style. Choose supplies that will complement their home decor.
If you’re not sure what to get, ask a friend or family member for recommendations. You can always ask for help at a local nursery or garden center.
If you’re giving the supplies as a gift, consider putting them together in a basket or tote. This will make it easy for the recipient to get started with their new plant supplies.
