Father’s Day Gift Guide
So, it’s June! One of our favourite months of the year here at TLB, the month when summer officially starts and this year it kicked off with a fab 4-day bank holiday weekend and will end with Wimbledon getting underway! Amidst all the excitement, we mustn’t forget that right in the middle, on Sunday 19th June, it’s Father’s Day, the best time to show the super fathers and father figures in our lives just how much they mean to us and thank them for everything they do.
Sometimes finding the right gifts for these superheroes in our lives can be a rather difficult task. That’s why The Little Botanical team are bringing you some Father’s Day gift inspiration in the form of our specially curated range of green beauties that your marvellous Dad is sure to love.
Have a browse of these lovelies, in our humble opinion they are the best plants for dad and are sure to please the main man in your life.
The Little Botanical brings you our pick of the best indoor plants for Father’s Day
A living green gift is a top choice for a gift for dad, there will be a plant that even the manliest of men will appreciate, from a spiky cactus to a feathery fern, from small budgets to bigger wallets, you’re sure to find something that will suit your dad’s personality and show them just how much you care this Father’s Day. If you need a Father’s Day present, look no further…
Give your dad the gift of zen this Father’s Day with our super tranquil Zen Bundle. This calm-inducing pair combines a Ficus Ginseng Tree with a Sansevieria Punk. The Ficus Ginseng Tree, also known as a beginner’s Bonsai, comes potted in our modern grey stoneware, whilst the Sansevieria Punk comes in your choice of our black and gold or grey and copper bespoke ceramics; super stylish packaging for this peaceful pair.
And as you’d expect for a gift called the Zen Bundle, these green beauties are definitely in the category of easy-care plants, so they’re certainly not going to bring any stress to your dad’s life. Simply pop them in a bright spot and give them water sparingly. The Sansevieria only needs a drink once every 7-10 days and the Ficus Ginseng Tree even less frequently; he will only need a drink every 3-4 weeks. They are the perfect easy-care pair to brighten up your dad’s desk or bedside table.
Zen Bundle, £44
Whilst the Zen Bundle makes a super plant gift for dad, the Ficus Ginseng, also known as the beginner’s Bonsai as mentioned, is perfectly able to stand on his own trunk and makes a fab gift all by himself! What dad wouldn’t love a miniature tree to nurture for Father’s Day and beyond? This little green beauty makes a great office plant for dad, bringing a little green to the corner of his desk and giving dad something to care for when he needs a little break from the grindstone. With plenty of love (and a little water) this mini tree will bring him maximum joy!
Ficus Ginseng, £26.50
This next pick is one of our all-time favourites here at TLB. The Sansevieria is commonly known as a Snake Plant and the TLB team fondly refers to him as Snakey. This guy regularly makes it onto our top pick lists thanks to his winning combination of striking good looks and easy-care credentials. Your dad is sure to appreciate this hardy individual brightening up his living space and, as an extra bonus, he’ll benefit from purified air too! Choose between a charcoal, almond or grey ceramic or one of our signature seagrass belly baskets and let your lucky dad admire those vibrant, upright leaves for months to come.
Sansevieria (Snakey), £23
If your dad thinks of himself as a bit of a cool dude, then this next pick is a great choice for him. The Sansevieria Punk, with his funky, upright, firm foliage, will serve as a little green reflection of your dad’s cool attitude and style!
This little green punk is available in our bespoke ceramics in a choice of black and gold, grey and copper or plain grey with a varnished base. Whichever you choose, this green guy is sure to make a perfect desk plant for dad, raising a smile when work stresses might be taking their toll. Looking after our lovely Sansevieria Punk won’t add to his stresses either, he will only require a little water under his leaves once every 1-2 months!
Sansevieria Punk, £20
Air Purifying Sansevieria Selection
If you love the idea of the Sansevieria Punk but have a slightly bigger budget and want to treat dad to an extra special gift this year then check out this dynamic duo. This selection sees the Sansevieria Punk paired with the Spikey Sansevieria, two cool green beauties that will add a funky vibe to any indoor jungle at the same time as purifying the air. As if that wasn’t enough, these are truly easy-care plants for dad; these hardy little beauties only need water about once every 3-4 weeks – this really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Easy Care Plant Basket Bundle
For the dad that deserves a real treat this Father’s Day, look no further than this fab bundle of gorgeous greenery, ready-planted in our stylish signature cotton and seagrass belly baskets. As the name suggests, the Zamioculcas and Draceana featured in this duo are not difficult to look after. Pop them in a dull corner to keep the green style high and the stress levels low; a fab choice for an office plant for dad, he’s sure to enjoy the vibrant pop of green these leafy lovelies will bring.
Now, our much-loved Asparagus Fern is not quite as easy-care as the other Father’s Day plant picks we’ve featured so far. However, if your dad loves the great outdoors then this could well be the best green beauty for him to bring indoors. Whether you choose one of our bespoke stoneware or our signature belly basket, he’ll be able to sit back and admire this fabulously feathery beauty. Watch him channel those outdoor vibes through his new botanical buddy even when he can’t physically be outside!
Asparagus Fern, £20.50
To make sure your dad can keep this beauty thriving, let him know that ferns hail from the tropics and absolutely love humidity – we recommend giving him a good mist regularly. You could consider pairing this lovely plant with our fab Zab Plant Mister. Functional and stylish, this will make a super little add on to your Father’s Day plant gift and will allow the main man in your life to give his new plant the care it needs. In addition to a good mist, the Asparagus Fern likes a thorough drink once his soil is dry and will be happy in a spot that is out of direct sunlight and away from radiators and draughts.
Asparagus Fern & Succulent Gang
As gifts for dads go, this one’s a corker; a plant gang featuring the feathery Asparagus Fern in our neutral stoneware alongside a medium and mini succulent in our chic grey ceramics. If an urban jungle with a contemporary twist is right up your dad’s street, then look no further, this is the perfect bundle for him. This set will bring fab green vibes to his space at home or in the office.
Euphrates Watering Can & Boston Fern Gift Set
Our final pick for Father’s Day plants is this gorgeous gift set. Continuing on the fern theme, this fab combo pairs our Boston Fern in almond stoneware with the Euphrates watering can in your choice of copper or gold. The gorgeous metallic finish on these ergonomically designed accessories elevates them from purely functional to very stylish. They are far too beautiful to be hidden away in a cupboard and complement the neutral tone of the fern’s stoneware perfectly. These two will look just stunning atop a shelf in your dad’s office.
And although ferns do require slightly more care than some of the other green beauties in our range, the Boston Fern is the easiest of the fern family to look after. Pop him in a spot with medium light, away from radiators and draughts and give him a drink about once a week to keep his soil moist but not soggy. He’ll also enjoy a little mist every week or so to keep those humidity levels up.
A little extra…
To show your lovely dad just how much he means to you this Father’s Day, why not treat him to a tasty bar of chocolate, turning his plant present into a fab gift set. Here at TLB we stock a range of delicious chocolate. Supplied by the wonderful ARTHOUSE Unlimited, the chocolate is made with ethically sourced, sustainable cocoa and the packaging, which features stunning hand-drawn designs, is reusable (the cardboard envelope) and recyclable (the metallic foil). There are five delicious flavours to choose from, ranging from a more classic Milk Chocolate with Caramel & Sea Salt to the more exotic Dark Chocolate with Spiced Rum, Chilli & Caribbean Crunch so you’re sure to find something to tickle your dad’s tastebuds.
We hope we’ve given you plenty of ideas and inspiration for your Father’s Day gift this year, if you have any questions about anything in our Father’s Day plant range please do get in touch; [email protected].
And don’t forget to order by midnight on Wednesday 15th June for delivery in time for the big day.
