We all know someone (sometimes we are that someone) who might need a lovely little pick-me-up, a friendly reminder that they are loved, that you are thinking of them.  And what better way to do that than to send a little green gift that grows.

Our awesome green beauties are proven to purify the air and increase feelings of calm and happiness compared to spaces without houseplants. We think anyone feeling blue should definitely fill their home with green, and let the little botanicals do their thing.

Our TLB range of little plants provides fab options to choose from. We’ve picked out some of our favourites from the collection of mini plants (and some big ones too!), to give you some gifting inspiration.

Plant Gift Sets

We know that plants make fabulous gifts but sometimes it can be pretty difficult to make a decision. If you’re in that camp, don’t worry, here at TLB we want to help you be able to make those choices quickly and easily. So, we have created a very handy Gift Finder, enabling you to filter by price, size and pot. And, as if that isn’t helpful enough, we’ve also curated several collections of plants that we think make stunning, smile-raising gifts, whatever the occasion. Whether you want to say thank you, happy birthday, happy new home or I love you, we’ve got you covered.

Little Extras to Make Your Gift Extra Special

If you’ve selected the perfect little plant or two for your special someone but you don’t feel your gift is quite finished, we have a great selection of perfect little add-ons that are sure to make your gift complete.

Staying solidly with a plant theme, you might like to get them the perfect little accessory to make looking after their new green buddy a dream. Our ever-so-stylish, ergonomically designed watering cans are a popular choice. Available in two sizes and finished in either copper or antique gold, when paired with a personalised pot in a matching metallic finish these are sure to take your gift from good to great! Alternatively, you might choose our equally as stylish Zab Plant Mister, also available in the elegant copper or antique gold finish. They aer the perfect choice as an add on, especially for any of our humidity-loving houseplants.

And another brilliant, somewhat retro option, is to pair one of our small or medium pots with a Natural Macrame Plant Hanger. These textured accessories are handwoven by artisans using sustainable cotton and eucalyptus and are finished with a bespoke TLB metallic tag. The intricate knotting and tassel details make these a perfect space-saving choice for a subtly boho look and feel.

Another fab option for a little extra add-on to your gift is one of these little books. Check out The Little Book for Plant Parents, a super handy guide full of helpful hints and tips for all plant parents but especially the newbies out there. Or take a look at You Grow Girl, an inspirational and uplifting book full of empowering quotes to help women believe in themselves – it could be just what your friend in need needs right now!
