If Instagram is any indication, a love of plants can absolutely become an identity. It seems that one small Pothos plant can quickly spiral into a full-blown urban jungle complete with rare catci and ceiling-grazing statement plants, and we’re here for it.

Tending plants is good for the home, and heart, and we love nothing more than encouraging the plant lovers in our lives by way of gardening-themed gifts.

With that, we enlisted the help of Havenly lead designer and fellow plant whisperer Kelsey Fischer for her favorite gifts for the green thumb. From a chic watering can to living, breathing houseplants, there’s a little something for every plant nurturer on your list.

gifts for plant lovers
  1. Garden Trimming & Pruning Shears ($59): This duo is the gold standard in plant care, whether you’re fostering an indoor garden or putting down roots outside.
  2. Wild Creations ($25): This coffee table book is a no-brainer for plant lovers. Hilton Carter is both a plant whisperer and a designer, and his work is simply stunning.
  3. Double Bowl Hanging Planter ($99): Skip the standard floor pot and gift this decorative double-bowl hanging planter from CB2. It will look right at home in a kitchen or half bath.
  4. Small Herb Garden ($210): When winter gets you down, this indoor hydroponic garden can lift your spirits from the comfort of your kitchen. 
  5. Oyster Mushroom Log Kit ($30): For the plant lover that has everything, this mushroom log kit is a home-run novelty gift that they won’t forget (foodies will appreciate it, too).
  6. Herb Plant Markers ($50): These cute herb markers lend a stylish flair to any garden and can be used year after year, indoors or out. 
  7. Outdoor Wooden Pegboard ($129): Not only does this pegboard cue cottagecore vibes, it’s a true garden workhorse. Hang gardening tools, gloves, and sun hats from the pegs, and display plants and florals on the shelves.
  8. Herb Planting Kit ($60): If your friend or family member is new to the gardening game, gift this beginner-friendly tool set. It comes with the essentials: a soil scoop, hand trowel, gardening rake, pruning snips, and seed packets.
  9. Rechargeable LED Hanging Lamp ($129): Stylish and functional, this is the perfect portable LED lamp. It’s a must-have when growing herbs and other sun-loving botanicals indoors. 
  10. Red Prayer Plant ($39): When you don’t know what to get a person with a green thumb, you can’t go wrong with an actual plant. They’ll happily add this little guy to their collection. 
  11. Terrain Canvas Garden Apron ($38): This apron is a must for the serious gardener — it has over eight compartments for pruning shears, gardening gloves, seed packets, a hand trowel, and more.
  12. Copper Plant Mister ($38): This plant mister is equal parts beautiful and practical. Use it to give your plants a little TLC, and display it on your windowsill or plant shelf afterwards.

And of course, you can never go wrong with gifting design magic. Give them a gift card for a Havenly design package, and invite them to a fun and personalized online experience as they enjoy a room glow-up.
