Are you searching for a gift to give to the indoor gardeners or houseplant lovers in your life? Well, look no further! We’ve rounded up 18 must-have gifts that any houseplant horticulturist, whether beginning or experienced, would both need and love.

Collage with gifts for indoor gardeners and houseplant lovers includes hanging wire baskets, big woven basket, plant stand, houseplant care book, watering cans & scissors

1.) Hanging Wire Structures

Hanging containers are a must when it comes to indoor gardening if someone lacks floor or table space. These wire structures come in 4 different sizes.  How jazzy are they?

2.) Large Woven Storage Basket

Organization is a key part of successful gardening so why not start by keeping everything in one place?  The indoor gardener doesn’t need a shed. This roomy basket will make sure there’s room for trowels, bags of dirt, a watering can, and more.

3.) Wire Plant Stand

Plant stands are a staple of indoor gardening and decor. These structures are modern and fun and you can get them in different sizes. The taller ones would look fabulous with trailing plants.

4.) Keep Your Houseplants Alive Book

Perhaps your indoor gardener is still figuring out how to take care of their plants. This book is one of the easiest ways to get them on their way. It’s written by Nell who has years of experience taking care of indoor plants and has put together an easy to understand houseplant care guide.

5.) Watering Can & Mister Set

This watering can and mister set can easily become part of any indoor space decor because they look so good. At the same time,  they’re so necessary to keep plants watered and misted. The watering can comes in 2 other colors.

6.) Garden Scissors

Scissors are always handy to have when gardening. These come in two different sizes that will help the gardener in your life tackle different kind of projects.

1.) Ornamental Sea Glass

Houseplants look so much better if their dirt covered up and that’s why I love top-dressing them. This ornamental glass will add an ocean feel to any pot.

2.) Wall Sticked Planters Flower Pots

These are so fun and versatile.  They can be used for cut flowers or plants that grow in water like Lucky Bamboo, Spider Plants, Hoyas, and Pothos. 

3.) Dutch Trowel

Every gardener, either indoors or out, needs a good standard trowel to move the dirt around. This is one of those everlasting gifts.

4.) Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning

Houseplants need pruning too and this tool will help make the job a lot easier.

5.) 3.54 Inch White Ceramic Planter

If the person you are thinking about loves succulents, this is a great option. These simple, contemporary pots, in a set of 3,  will especially fit any bohemian or minimalistic style home.

6.) Cloth

Indoor plants need to have their leaves cleaned every now and then. This Swedish cloth is made from cotton and plant-based cellulose fibers. They’re 100% natural and compostable – I bet gardener in your life will love this fact!

1.) Hanging Planter Basket

This is a cute set that you can get in different colors. Nell has these exact same ones and will tell you firsthand how much she loves them because they’re extremely light yet attractive. You can see one of them in this project about how she repotted her hanging succulent.

2.) Macrame Plant Hanger

Meticulously handcrafted, this beauty can bring magic to any indoor space or even cheer up an office. Just note that the pot isn’t included!

3.) Cement Fiber

This lightweight pot is modern and combines well with any plant. You can get it in 3 different sizes, or as a set. These could be easily be painted and decorated. Here’s an idea for how to decorate them.

4.) Cork Mat

These mats are very helpful at preventing stains on floors. If you’ve heard your gardener complaining about floor stains, then these are a very practical gift. 

5.) Tillandsia Variety 5 Pack

This variety pack is perfect for anyone who loves to decorate with plants.

6.) Houseplant Tool Set 3-piece

It’s very useful to have smaller tools when gardening indoors with smaller sized pots and plants. This mini set would make a darling gift.

Hope this guide makes your gift hunt easier and more enjoyable. I bet the indoor gardeners and houseplant lovers in your life will be happy to get any of these, because well… I would too!

Happy Holiday Shopping!

  1. Just saw your video on plant pests…namely fungus gnats…and wanted to share this w/you and your readers. I discovered that Walmart sells Tomcat Glue Boards for less than $3 for pack of four boards. They are for mice, roaches, scorpions, and other unwanted pests. To stretch my dollar, I use a box cutter to cut them into 4 equal pieces. Do not use scissors as the sticky substance will gum up your scissors and it will be almost impossible to clean it off. Cut first then peel off the protective plastic sheet. I CARFULLY lay the strips sticky side up on top of the dirt in my houseplants. Be extremely careful not to allow the sticky part to touch the leaves or you will lose part of the leaf trying to pry it off. Stays stuck to human hair too! Have done this once or twice!!This stuff is really strong but it catches the gnats. I also use whole boards in my larger plants. You can even tape the strips or boards to a chopstick or probe and stick them into the pot. They will look like a white flag sticking out of the pot, but I had more “leaf fatalities” doing this. I tried the apple vinegar thing, petroleum jelly on an index card, among others. No luck but the Tomcat boards work quite well. After about a week, you should change out the boards because dust will stick to them and make them less adherent. We send people into outer space and back successfully. You’d think someone would invent a quick, successful way to eliminate fungus gnats!

  2. So true Debra – fungus gnats are so annoying! Thanks for sharing all those tips. Nell
