Why gift someone a plant? The answer is simple and straightforward -- plants make people happy! Whether they've got a well-established green thumb or they're fledgling plant parents, they'll love the challenge that comes from every new plant!
Just like people, each plant has their own personality and their own specific needs, and finding that sweet spot of how much water and sunlight they need to blossom into their full potential is a journey in and of itself. So now's the perfect time to send a gift that brings a little bit of nature into any space.
From succulent-lined shelves in the home office to growing food in the backyard, these are monthly subscription services and plant-of-the-month clubs that cater to every type of plant lover. We’ve done a little digging here on the Cratejoy Marketplace and have grown a useful gift guide of some of our favorite monthly boxes that will make great gifts for anyone on your list!
