choosing the perfect plant gift

FACT: Plants bring people joy and they have built in health benefits. Feel free to #factcheck this statement because we are 100% certain of this to be true. We actually can’t think of a single reason why plants aren’t the perfect gift. They are literally the gift that keeps on giving so it’s no wonder they are becoming a popular gift choice.

Choosing the perfect plant gift can be challenging. Especially if you don’t know how dedicated your special someone will be to keeping a plant alive. We will do everything we can to prevent the all too common plant death tragedy. We’ll help you select the right plant, offer 12 month plant care coaching and ongoing plant health support. We will package your gift with care and deliver it to your special someone, all you have to do is let us know what message you would like us to write on the gift tag! You can even gift your plant in a pot and add a little extra something special from our gift selection.

The best overall plant gift.

Peace Lily.

If we could only choose one plant as the best overall gift it would be a Peace Lily. This plant is one of the ultimate total beginner plants and is also appreciated by plant enthusiasts. The lush glossy foliage on this plant is a feature but when it flowers this plant can be spectacular. The Peace Lily flower is actually one of the longest lasting flowers of any plant so it makes a great alternative to gifting a bouquet of flowers. The Peace Lily is tolerant of most home and office environments making it a great gift choice. Unfortunately the only downside to this plant is that it is toxic to dogs, cats and humans if ingested. It is unlikely to be fatal, however we recommend being mindful of keeping all houseplants out of reach of small children and pets anyway.


Monstera deliciosa.

With distinctive natural holes in its glossy green foliage the Monstera leaf is one of the most recognised leaves in the plant world and tops the list of the most instagrammed indoor foliage plants ever. The popularity of this plant indicates it’s probably a good choice for gifting so we place it a close second after the Peace Lily. Not to mention it’s super low maintenance and tolerates most home and office environments! Again, be mindful of small children and pets with this one too.


Colourful plants.

These colourful plants are a great alternative to gifting a flower bouquet.

Chinese Evergreen.

The Chinese Evergreen is an attractive foliage plant available in a variety of colours, patterns and sizes. These plants are becoming increasingly popular due their fuss free nature and their decorative colourful foliage makes them the perfect alternative to gifting a bunch of flowers. The many different varieties of Chinese Evergreen have the same minimal care needs and they are a great gift choice for beginners and enthusiasts alike.



If your special someone has a bit of experience with plants they may appreciate the slightly more challenging Calathea plant. The colourful textured foliage makes these plants a truly beautiful gift and they aren’t really too difficult to care for. Like the Chinese Evergreen these plants come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes but they are a safer plant choice for anyone with pets.


Romantic plants.

Heart Leaf Philodendron. Nature offers us some of the most romantic heart shaped plants to show our love for that special someone. Our all time favourite is the Heart Leaf Philodendron also known as the Sweetheart Vine. Awww… As far as plants go they don’t get much more low maintenance than this pretty little thing! The heart leaf can cascade gracefully off a shelf or climb up a totem pole, they can live in a jar of water or a pot of soil, in low light or in bright light… they truly are a perfect plant gift for the romantic.

Echeveria. Why gift a bouquet of roses that wilt in a couple of days when you can give this stunning rosette shaped plant that will literally last years with minimal care. This plant needs the occasional drink but apart from that you can just set it down on the window sill and admire its beauty. And because Echeveria glauca is non-toxic to cats, dogs and humans it’s suitable in pretty much every home so it really does make a perfect plant gift.


Pet friendly plants.

The Calathea and Echeveria plants above are both considered pet friendly plants but some other popular options are the Jade Plant and the Parlour Palm.

Jade Plant. Crassula ovata also known as Jade Plant, Friendship Tree, Lucky Plant, Money Plant or Money Tree is a traditional gift for business owners as it is considered a good luck plant to attract wealth. It’s a popular Feng Shui plant because it gives off positive energy (chi) and it also symbolizes friendship. You would think a plant that brings you so much reward would be hard to look after right? Wrong! Plants don’t get much more easy going than this one. Who wouldn’t want to be gifted this plant?


Parlour Palm. If you’re the kind of person who needs cold hard facts that have been scientifically proven by a reputable source than the Parlour Palm is the plant for you! This lush tropical looking plant is listed in NASA’s report on Interior Landscape Plants For Indoor Air Pollution Abatement as having high air purifying properties. It’s low maintenance and has also been proven to adapt to artificial fluorescent light. This feature makes it a great option for office greenery.
