Your Father’s Day Gift Guide

This Father’s Day, give him a gift that keeps on giving. From easy-care succulents to brighten up his work space, bold leafy houseplants in ceramics or little friends in our personalised pots, we know you will find him a new plant to cherish. To make life easier, we’ve curated a selection of gorgeous  gifts just for him.

No matter what his taste, you can find thoughtful personalised  gifts, easy-care plant gifts and unique gift sets to show you care.

A Living Gift – A Happy Houseplant

First up, we think our houseplants in pots are the perfect go-to gift for Dad. Give a living gift he’ll care for all year with a strong and healthy, UK-Grown Little Botanical Houseplant.

We offer a great choice of ceramics or belly baskets, making this gift ideal for dad and we have some firm favourites in Team TLB.  A beautiful British-grown Houseplant in a stylish ceramic  pot is certainly a gift he’ll 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 darker corner either. Perfect for your dad’s office or living space.

To keep this glossy plant happy, pop him in a a room with medium light and give him water about once every 4 weeks (and only once his soil is completely dry). What could be easier than that?

Simply choose your pot colour and your ready to go, we’ll package it up and send it direct to your dad. We’ll even handwrite a gift message.

Sansevieria Punk

Punk by name, punk by nature, this crazy-looking succulent 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 to the pot to make your gift extra special.

Among our team, this is a top favourite father’s day gift. All you need to do is think what to have writen on the pot. We think No.1 Dad or Best Dad look fab engraved on the pot.

Blue Star Fern

Ferns are a such a lovely choice to bring real texture and interest to a home and the Blue Star Fern 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.

In terms of plant care, the Blue Star Fern will be happiest indoors in dappled like, a bit like his natural habitat on the forest floor.  We’d suggest finding a medium lit spot and avoid placing him in direct sunlight, draughts or near a radiator. And make sure he’s watered thoroughly, once the top layer of soil has dried out.

This guy is perfect for the bathroom or corner of a room or even under the canopy of a larger houseplant.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

Large, paddle-shaped, vibrant green leaves help to make this majestic beauty stand out from the crowd. The Fiddle Leaf Fig or Ficus Lyrata will make the perfect gift for a dad who likes to make a statement. Whether standing alone  in one of our stunning ceramics or as a larger centrepiece in a bigger indoor jungle, this beauty is sure to be admired.

He comes in a few different sizes and pot colours and loves a bright spot best. To ensure he stays fresh and flourishing, keep him in a well-lit spot and away from  draughts. The perfect spot for a Fiddle Leaf Fig is the middle of a bright room or even on a window sill (except South Facing).

Our tips for Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant Care would be to give him a drink every 7 to 10 days. We think the almond ceramic shows off his bright glossy leaves and he looks pretty special in our bespoke baskets too, made with sustainable cotton and seagrass.

Gift some British Grown Herbs

Another great gift idea for Father’s Day is our Herb Mix.  6 potted edible herbs grown here in West Sussex.  Perfect for the 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 sage, thyme, lavender, mint and rosemary.

And why not take this gift up a notch by treating your dad to our charcoal or almond stoneware pots to display his new herbs in, 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.

Send a Plant Gang – The Desk Buddies

Help dad to spruce up his office with this oh so cute collection of 3 easy-care succulents in stylish ceramics. The perfect gift to pop on the edge of a desk or shelf to bring some stylish, spiky vibes to his room.

This fab little bundle combines the Sansevieria Punk with an Aloe succulent and a Mini Haworthia, all in stylish bespoke ceramics. Not only does this fab trio look great, they are super easy to look after too; simply water them every 3 to 4 weeks – easy peasy!  With such simple plant care needs, even your busy dad can handle this plant trio.

The Succulent Plant Gang

Continuing with the easy-care succulent theme,we all know dad’s are busy – here is another superb trio to make dad’s day. Combining a Haworthia, a Crassula and a Miranda, this fab selection brings oodles of style with plenty of texture and interest for a plant-scape. Planted in matching ceramics, and arriving at his door with the click of the button, this is a great gift to send dad.

And with easy care credentials as well, this is a one of the best gift ideas for Father’s Day for an all-round busy dad. Why not upgrade your gift with a bar of his favourite chocolate.

Our Air-Purifying Plant Bundles

Give your dad the gift of fresh air with either of these next two bundles.

Air-Purifying Sansevieria Selection

A cute duo of best-selling, air-purifying Sansevieria plants; a Sansevieria Spikey and a Sansevieria Punk. This distinctive pair, potted in our gorgeous bespoke ceramics make a perfect gift idea for Father’s Day.

And they’re ever so easy to look after too, these tough little beauties will only need water every 3 to 4 weeks so are ideal for a forgetful waterer.

Air-Purifying Bundle

This aptly named plant gang combines a trio of air-purifying powerhouses to bring style and clean air in one neat little package. The Sansevieria Snakey, Sansevieria Punk and Weeping Fig will add plenty of green style to your dad’s space and they are nice and easy to care for too.

The Sansevieria plants will enjoy a well-lit spot but thanks to their easy-going nature, they’ll also cope in a darker corner and they only need watering once a fortnight.
