Brighten Someone's Day – with a Little Botanical Plant

20 July 2022 | Green Inspiration

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. Let the little botanicals do their thing.



From mini plants for a token gift to big beauties for a statement present, our TLB houseplant range has plenty of plant present inspiration. Keep reading for our favourite plant gifting ideas to really brighten someone’s day. And all of our plants include a decorative pot or belly basket, for a ready-made gifting solution. So whether you need a gift for a specific occasion or you’d just like to send a thoughtful little pick-me-up, we’ve got you covered.

Mini Plants that Make a Big Impression

From spiky and structured to leafy and luscious, there are bundles of choice in our selection of petite house plants. These little guys have big personalities so you’re sure to find some fantastic smile-raisers in this collection. Take a look below at some of our favourite mini houseplant picks.

A lusciously leafy option to let a friend know that they’re in your thoughts. Fast-growing, easy-care and stylish too. A top choice for a mini plant gift!

And did you know…?

You can now make it personal! The beauty and high quality of our ceramics are often remarked upon and now you can make them even more unique by adding your very own message. Say something sweet, say something funny, say something heartfelt. The choice is yours. And it couldn’t be easier. Take a look at our FAQs page for all the details but, in short, any of our mini or medium metallic dipped pots can be personalised. Simply tick the ‘personalise me’ box and enter your message in the text box. And voila – a personalised laser engraved pot will be winging its way to your lucky recipient. There is surely no better way to send someone some love than with a personalised, totally unique gift!



Plant Gift Boxes

As the name suggests, our gift boxes are ready-made boxes of gifting joy. We have paired with two fabulous self-care brands to create a range of indulgent boxes, tailored to indulge the senses and promote wellbeing. Featuring some of our most popular plants and indulgent self-care products from Aery and Wanderflower, these gift boxes are a real treat, all for your gifting pleasure.

Treat your loved one to an at-home pamper session with the Pamper & Nourish Gift Box. It features a beautifully potted succulent alongside 4 Wanderflower facial products for the ultimate self-care treat.



Do you know someone who’s in need of a little screen break? If the answer is yes, then the Digital De-tox & Destress Gift Box is the one to choose. This fab set will encourage them to turn off the tech, pop the air-purifying succulent on their bedside table and indulge themselves with the Wanderflower Off Grid Digital Detox Set.



Send someone the gift of super soft hands with a super-lux Nourish Those Hands Gift Box. Available with Aery’s Happy Space hand wash and cream alongside a cute Hoya Kerrii Heart or with Aery’s Green Bamboo hand wash and cream paired with a stylish Mini Miranda Succulent.



A Mini Miranda succulent nestles next to a rejuvenating Wanderflower hair mask as well as a hairbrush and hair turban in the Hydrate & Revive hair care gift box. Everything your lucky recipient needs to transform tired tresses to luscious locks.



If self-care isn’t quite what the gifting doctor ordered, take a look at our candle gift sets. We have recently added a range of luxury candles in 4 glorious scents to our range. We’ve also supercharged their gift appeal by pairing them with a lovely little botanical to create 4 gorgeous gift sets.

The Pink Cashmere Candle Gift Set combines the tranquil aloe & jasmine candle with an Aloe Succulent. Both are in matching pink glazed ceramics for a soft and feminine finish.



For an elegantly stylish gift, choose the Touch of Grey Candle Gift Set. This feaures the comforting sandalwood & cedar candle and the gorgeously ghostly Lilacina succulent in matching grey glazed ceramics.



For an oh-so-stylish gift, take a look at the Back to Black Candle Gift Set. It showcases the aromatic pomegranate & berry candle and a Haworthia succulent in timeless black glazed ceramics.



The Forever Green Candle Gift Set pairs the uplifting wild fig & ginger candle with a Miranda succulent. Both come in beautiful green glazed ceramics to maximise those indoor jungle vibes.


Our last gift box pick is the New Home Plants and Vanilla Biscuits Gift Set. When a friend or loved one moves house, it’s natural to want to send them a little housewarming present. This gift set is just perfect. Pairing a trio of easy-care succulents to instantly make their new pad feel like home with a box of delicious, new-home themed biscuits to enjoy with a cuppa once they’ve unpacked the kettle; we’re sure that this set will be oh so appreciated.



Little Extras to Make Your Gift Extra Special

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.

Available in two sizes and finished in either copper or antique gold, when paired with a laser engraved 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. This is also available in the elegant copper or antique gold finish. They are the perfect choice as an add-on, especially for any of our humidity-loving houseplants.



Now sometimes, we all know that the very best add-on you could possibly pair with any gift is a bar of deliciously sweet chocolate. Make their day with a sweet treat from our range of chocolate.
