Your Father’s Day Gift Guide

Whether the father figure in your life is a green-fingered afficionado or a newbie to the world of houseplants, we’re sure to have a green beauty to suit him and his tastes so give him a gift that keeps on giving this Father’s Day. From easy-care houseplants to brighten his space, to plants for the more confident plant parent or personalised pots that he’ll treasure, keep reading for our rundown of top gift ideas for dad.

The Humble Houseplant

First up, we have our gift ideas for Father’s Day with individual plants that we think even the manliest of men will be proud to have on display.


Known also as a Zamio or ZZ Plant, this vibrant green, leafy beauty is a brilliant choice for a father figure who is so busy being an all-round superhero, he hasn’t got much spare time for plant care.

This hardy houseplant brings a joyous burst of green to your home and makes a popular choice thanks to his willingness to be somewhat neglected; he can last for weeks without water and won’t really complain if he’s placed in a dark room either. Perfect if your dad has a man cave he likes to hide in from time to time.

If you would like a particularly happy Zamio though, pop him in a shady area, away from direct sunlight and give him water about once every 4 weeks once his soil is completely dry.

Zamioculcas, £20.50 – £22

Sansevieria Punk

Punk by name, punk by nature, this crazy-looking guy is another super easy-care choice; he’ll be happy with just a very small amount of water directly into his soil every 1 to 2 months! With his impressively distinctive spray of thin, rigid leaves, this green beauty will bring oodles of botanical style to your dad’s décor. And with a choice of 7 different bespoke ceramics, there is sure to be an option to suit your dad.

You can even make this particular gift completely unique by adding a personalised message.

Sansevieria Punk, £20

Blue Star Fern

Ferns are a lovely choice to bring real texture and interest to an indoor jungle and the Blue Star variety is no exception. With his elongated fronds in a stunning, green-blue hue, he will add an air of sophistication to your dad’s space and will also contrast beautifully with any greenery already on display.

The fab fern will be happy in almost any position although do avoid direct sunlight, draughts and radiators. And make sure he’s watered thoroughly once the top layer of soil has dried out. He will also enjoy a mist every now and again.

Blue Star Fern, £20.50

Fiddle Leaf Fig

Large, paddle-shaped, vibrant green leaves help to make this majestic beauty stand out from the crowd. He will make the perfect gift for a father figure who likes to make a statement. Whether standing alone or as a centrepiece in a bigger indoor jungle, this beauty is sure to be admired.

To ensure he stays fresh and flourishing, keep him out of draughts and away from radiators in a well-lit spot. Give him a drink every 7 to 10 days when the top 3 to 4 inches of soil are dry and give his lovely big leaves a gentle wipe if they start to gather dust.

Fiddle Leaf Fig, £22

Plant Gang Gifts

If you think a single houseplant just won’t cut the mustard for your top dad this Father’s Day, you’ll be keen to hear the plant gangs we have available are perfect gift ideas for Father’s Day. Keep reading for our favourite options for a smile-raising Father’s day present.

Herb Mix

We also have some great gift ideas for Father’s Day for those budding chef’s out there. If your dad is a bit of a culinary enthusiast, then he will love this selection of British-grown, edible herbs. A treat for his eyes, nose and tastebuds, this selection comes as a set of 6 or 10 herbs and includes some classic favourites such as thymus, lavender, mint and rosemary.

And why not take this gift up a level by treating your dad to our charcoal or almond stoneware pots to display his new herb garden, the muted tones complement the green herbs perfectly.

Make sure dad waters his herbs regularly to keep them fresh and gives them a good trim to keep the new growth coming. If he chooses to plant them in the garden, he should keep them weed free and prune away any older leaves about once a month.

Herb Mix, £36 – £54
