Why plants make the best gifts?
Plants are more than just leaves, stems and roots. They bring the wild beauty of inside, which we crave especially in autumn and winter months when days are short and weather is … well British😊 Simplicity and relatively low-maintenance of plants appeal to whomever they are given, whether you’re looking for a gift for a client, Secret Santa for a colleague or your mother-in-law at Christmas, we reckon an indoor plant is one of the most unique gift you can find. And here are just 5 of the reasons why:
- Plants are good for people! Aside from the obvious benefits of improved air quality plants are also known for having a calming and stress-relieving effect. By giving your loved one a plant this holiday season, you’re really giving them a beautiful reminder for better health in the new year.
- Unlike other ‘living’ gifts (we’re looking at you, flowers) which die after a week or so, plants can really last forever… and isn’t that a beautiful metaphor for love and care? A plant can miraculously deliver you a fresh new leaf overnight! They really are the unique gift that keeps on giving.
- How many gifts that you’ve received end up in the back of your closet, the bottom of a drawer, or in the charity shop? You never have to worry about someone hating a plant, wanting to return it for a credit note, or needing a different size. Because everyone loves plants! It is guaranteed to be enjoyed and not forgotten. And if they don’t, they do not deserve a gift in the first place.
- A houseplant fits within any style. Whether it is someone who only wears vintage, a professional interior designer or a boring accountant (sorry accountants), an indoor plant will go perfectly in any space.
- They are perfect for any occasion. Whether it’s a Christmas dinner at in-laws, New Year’s part of a friend of a friend or your colleague’s leaving do, you simply cannot go wrong with an indoor plant!
The main thing is, however, to pick a plant that's fairly easy to take care of, unless you unwittingly give them the gift of murdering something beautiful.
