It's cooler than ever to be a green thumb. Even if you don't have a plot to tend to, the popularity of urban gardening has made it more accessible — not to mention stylish — to turn your home into a veritable jungle. And if you know someone who makes it her hobby to collect and care for greenery, there are so many spot-on gifts for the plant lover in your life that will help support her habit.
An obvious choice might be to get her a new plant baby — but that one might be a bit tricky. For example, you'd want to know what her indoor lighting situation is, though there are a number of types that are harder to kill even without a ton of sunlight. Also if she's a serious aficionado, she probably already owns many and you might want to avoid a repeat. Plant purchasing can be pretty personal, but if you do decide to get het a new baby, stick with something that's a little different (Even if it means asking about her current collection — she won't mind).
If you'd rather stick to accessories, a vintage-style mister makes caring for her plants so chic, it basically doubles as decor. And you can get creative with planters too: Consider how she can display her flora in different ways, like with a macrame hanger or a planters that can be mounted like wall art.
Then there are the gifts that have nothing at all to do with plant care, but rather just celebrate her passion. For example, jewelry with a delicate leaf print is a subtle way to show her plant lady status. That said, a cheeky mug never hurts, either. Want a few more ideas?
