Wondering what to get that plant-obsessed buddy in your circle? These ideas are meant to make them happy and quite simply scream “Aloe you and really thought of you!”
Gift-giving is quite difficult if you’re the type of person who likes specific things, especially if you’re shopping for someone who is obsessed with plants, then you don’t want to go the usual way by buying them some plant that they might already have. We want to get creative and thoughtful here! Think outside of the pot!
First up, grow lights
Let’s start with grow lights. As we all know, winter is very hard and challenging for plants. With the cold and decreasing daylight, plants need to be extra taken care of. Studies have been made on these LED grow lights from 2009 to up today by Valoya and the results show that plants thrive and grow exponentially under them. They can be very flexible and can fit around a number of different sizes of plants. Easy to use, they can be clipped onto a shelf, on a window sill, or can be put in the dark corner of the room.
Next up, we suggest plant hangers to hang their green babies either outdoors or indoors. They don’t take a lot of time to complete and untangle but also they’re very cheap to make on your own. They only take a few supplies to make and you can customize them to your own liking. You can make them on your own by using rope, an old and used t-shirt or even by using wires! This will show them that you dedicated your time to it, the definition of a thoughtful and generous gift. It will definitely give a more aesthetic look to the plants, and add more style to them. Who doesn’t love that?
Additionally, a wooden planter is a great way to create a bed for the plants. Since a plastic planter is more brittle and can break easily, a wooden one is made of pressure-treated timber it can be stained in any color and it won’t rot. A particular type of wood like cedar is mostly favored due to its durable, lightweight, and crack-resistant qualities. This will give the plant a more natural look. If you want to get more creative, you can buy some clay and make them a pot or even a cactus which they can use to put and hang their jewelry there. Besides, it would look great as a decorative accessory.
Since most plants need constant care and attention, not everybody has the time to do so. Some even forget to water them, thus we recommend getting them self-watering bulbs. You can get them in different shapes such as birds or butterflies, which can be quite adorable! They water the plants down to the roots a little at a time, making sure to not overwater them. Another very cool thing for those who aren’t around to take care of their babies is ‘grow care sticks’. Basically, you put them in the pot, and with the help of Bluetooth, you get notified on your smartphone by a specific app when the plants need to be fertilized, watered, or whether they need more sunshine.
If that doesn’t work out, you can get them a garden kit. It is possible they already have it but who doesn’t want an extra new garden kit? You can also add a pest spray to it which is very important for the health of the plants. This spray prevents the pests which is very effective and don’t worry because it also smells great. It treats the plants beautifully and leaves the leaves shiny and pretty.
Leaving the fun stuff for the end, get them a cap that says “Plant Mommy” or “Plant Daddy” with a scented candle to go along with it or even a plant-care book with which you can never go wrong.
There’s no better way to treat your plant lover buddies with the gifts listen from this carefully curated list, thoughtful and generous. The ideas are definitely green thumb winners!
