Let me start this post by saying that I have the worst luck with plants. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered the air plant, which I have now successfully kept alive for several weeks (go me)!
These nearly death-proof plants make great gifts for your friends (and yourself). Here are a few that I found along with a few other species for those who are less plant impaired…
Pear shaped terrarium from WestNest
Speaking of the air plants that I didn’t kill - here they are! WestNest’s Etsy shop has a lot of really cute air plant terrariums. I picked up the one above and it looks great on my desk at work!
Fun Fact: Air plants are actually great for the office because they prefer low light and don’t need to be watered often!
I also stumbled upon The Mosser. It looks like a cool little space plant and even comes with a spritzer so you can keep it refreshed. You only have to water it every two weeks, so it’s great for people like me who forget that office/desk plants don’t just run on florescent light and overheard work phone calls.
She’s a lady!
Insert googly eyes… anywhere.
I’m also not above purchasing something that’s made for kids, because let’s face it, it’s probably gonna be rad. Toys ‘R Us has a bunch of kits to choose from! I thought the Carnivorous Creations one looked the coolest, but beware, carnivorous plants are very testy (RIP venus fly trap on my desk…)
You can always go old school and buy someone an orchid and potting kit, but they’re also a little testy.
I highly recommend the Wooly Pocket web store. They have a wide selection of living wall products, which are a little different from your average potted plant and make a great housewarming gift. I purchased the Tina for myself last year, and I’m sure if it were not for my death curse that those little plants would have flourished beautifully!
RIP Tina. Sorry.
But let’s face it, there’s one plant gift that never, ever gets old. WHAT UP, CHIA PET? What friend wouldn’t be stoked to receive a Chia Kung Fu Panda or Chia Dinosaur? (If not, stop being friends with them immediately, they most likely have no soul.)
Now go forth and give (and pray for any future plants that I own.)
