One of the main things on my Christmas list this year is cute things to put plants in. Succulents, air plants, hanging planters, planters shaped like animals, I’m not overly fussed. If it’s cute and pretty and can sustain plant life, send it my way! I know there’s a growing trend for all things green out there at the moment (pun intended), so I thought I’d put together a few Christmas gift ideas for those of you with plant lovers in your lives.
- A hanging vase from Kirralle and Co. (top left. Kirralee’s vases are not only stylish (aren’t they just soooo pretty?) and functional, they’re sustainable too, as they’re all made out of reclaimed wood. Perfect for the plant lover who likes things looking super chic! Visit Kirralee’s Etsy store here.
- A fox planter from Minky Moo Ceramics (top right). Seriously, are these not the cutest? I don’t think I could stop at just one, I’d have to have a whole family of succulent filled foxes. You can visit Minky Moo’s Etsy store here.
- Indoor Green – Living with Plants. This book came out just recently and is filled with gorgeous pictures of indoor plants looking beautiful. Plant porn essentially. You can pick it up from bookstores, or the good people at Mr. Kitly here.
- A brass himmeli sculpture/air plant holder from Sprout and Friends. If the plant lover in your life is anything like me, they’re constantly acquiring air plants*. Eventually they will need somewhere to put all these air plants, and it may as well be a stylish geometric home like this one. Available from the Sprout and Friends Etsy store here.
- How about this adorable mist sprayer from Little Lands? Because, eventually all those plants will need watering, so why not do it in the fanciest way possible! Available here.
6. An air plant holder shape from Plant By Packwood (or anything from Plant by Packwood, really). These are absolutely stunning, and come in hexagons as well as triangles (which is extra exciting, for some reason), and once again, they’re perfect for the air plant hoarders amongst us. Available here.
I could go on and on with plant accessories, but at some point one must stop accessorising and actually pay attention to the plants themselves, lest they die of thirst in their beautiful homes! Are you hoping to get some cute plant things for Christmas? Is there anything you would add to this list? Do tell!
*Because air plants are fascinating! How do they survive on nothing? Why do they all look like bizarre sea creatures? How can they be so amazing?!
