10+ Best Gifts for Houseplant Lovers

Since we are approaching the gift giving season, and Cyber Monday is almost here,  I thought I could help my whole family if I let them know what some of my best Wishes are for this year. Perhaps you know someone who loves houseplants and/or has a lot of them and this list could help you buy for them too. Of course, I am including my affiliate link with Amazon and any purchases you make by using my link could earn me a small commission at no cost to you. Thanks for your support.

Perhaps that person in your life needs or wants some of these things and may not buy them for themselves. That’s where you will get them something they’ll use all year and always say ” My husband got this for me.”  Hint, hint!

7” Plant Pots Bulk, 6 Pack Plastic Planters with Drainage Holes and Saucers for Indoor Outdoor House Plants and Flowers, White

Sure, I know I make hypertufa pots, but sometimes I want something different. Right now, I am in love with putting a lot of my houseplants in white planters. It seems so cohesive throughout the house to have them in white only. I do have others that are not the same color, but I think the white pots are my favorite.

If you are into different colors, there are many options out there for you. How about this flowered one? Or maybe you need blue or aqua? The sky is the limit.

Large Cache Pots

Remember, you can always use your planter as a cache pot. Just leave the new plant potted in the nursery planter it comes in and insert that whole pot into a pretty pot like this one. No hole required. When it is time to water, just take it to the sink, pull the whole “inner” pot out, water thoroughly and allow the excess water to drain out. ( I sometimes let it sit on a shallow dish so that all the needed water wicks up into the dry soil.) Then put the watered plant back into the cache pot and put in back on your bookcase or table.  Voila! Beautiful and easy!

Don’t forget some soil!

Sometimes in winter, I cannot find the soil here in Ohio when I need to pot up a new plant or plant cuttings when they’ve developed enough roots. Why do the stores think we only plant in summer? ( I’m talking to you Walmart!) Most times it is just easiest to have it delivered to your door, right?

Can you tell that I am really getting into this Internet shopping!

Anyway, here are some indoor potting soils that I know would be so appreciated by a plant lover!

Perhaps you could add some cactus soil too, so that all the succulents and cactus have some ready-mixed soil available. That would make it so easy in the off-season and your recipient would think yours was the best gift after all!

What About Lighting?

There are always some places in my house where I want a plant but the lighting is just not great. Have you tried using a special grow light, just a small one that can be clamped on next to your plant on a table or bookcase shelf. I think these look so awesome and can really add to the growth and health of a plant. Like this one:

Or maybe your plant is large and needs its own light that can accommodate a taller branching area of foliage. This type can be easily adjusted to suit a lot of plants. In particular, this one can go up to almost 6 feet.

I have some individual plants that are not near a window or that light is not intense enough for its needs. Here are some lights you can put into the pot soil and provide the light it needs.

Maybe They’ve Run Out of Room?

I’ve heard that some people tend to get a lot of plants. And they still shop for more. Plant hauls are fun and so exciting and sometimes you can just get out of control and….run out of room for your plants. I have heard about this happening. Not admitting to anything…

If you don’t have room or need a smaller unit, these also come in a smaller table-top version or even for your kitchen counter for herbs etc. Great for keeping an eye on the plants and keeping them well trimmed.

I have had several old aquariums that I adapted to plants. They were wonderful and grew plants to well. See one of these posts.

How About Hanging Pots?

If your passion is for hanging pots, and you can’t really hang a lot of hooks in your ceiling or this shelving unit provides some spots for hanging planters. I would love to see a lot of String of Pearls hanging on this one!

But if you have a lot of hanging planters and just cannot get the mindset of skills necessary to make your own macrame (raising hand here), these could be a great option, don’t you think?

But if you’ve got the skills, make some to give for Christmas. I know I would sure love to have more, especially for outside. Here is a great place to order the macrame cord.

Indoor Watering Pots

Just a few more and I have to end the list. I always need a watering pot all over the house. I am partial to the simple watering can with a long spout and I feel so elegant watering with these.

But if you have a whole lot of plants and a lot of watering to do, I use the pressurized pump sprayer as I talked about in this post. But if I had my choice, I would get this one with a shoulder strap since that would be so much easier to carry around and go from room to room. Such as this one right here:

XXXFLOWER 0.5 Gallon Pump Pressure Sprayer, Portable, 2L Pressurized Lawn & Garden Water Spray Bottle with Adjustable Shoulder Strap, Pressure Relief Valve, for Yard Lawn Weeds Plants(Blue)

I have mine for WATER only, but I typically add my very weak solution of liquid fertilizer in the growing season.  This works so well for me because the long nozzle lets you get into deep pots or terrariums and water on the soil level. But the nozzle can be a mister if you want to use it that way.

Well, I hope some of these ideas result in some happy houseplant lovers this Christmas. I know I would love every one of them. (Hint to hubby.) And you don’t even have to get off the computer either. Boxed and delivered to your door! How times have changed.

Have a fun time shopping!
