Gift Ideas for the Green Thumb in Your Life

In our latest post, we shared five tips for a more sustainable gift-giving season. Now that you have those ideas in the back of your pocket and are ready to embark on the shopping journey, you might be looking for specific gift ideas for certain individuals in your life.

The pandemic has brought out the green thumbs in a lot of us, and we wanted to share a few gift ideas for the gardener and houseplant parent in your life!

Plant One Forward” and support a local plant business

One of our favorite pastimes is visiting local plant nurseries and botanical gardens. When the pandemic hit, we were unable to go to our usual spots because NYC was one of many cities that implemented strict protocols to flatten the curve and limit the spread of the disease. As a result, small plant businesses have struggled to stay afloat with limited customer interaction opportunities.

In an effort to support local plant businesses, Summer Rayne Oakes of Homestead Brooklyn started the Plant One Forward Initiative, which allows the community to submit and share our favorite plant shops so people everywhere can continue supporting these businesses! You can find a plant shop that delivers to your loved ones and help them continue their operations.

Grow kit

If you have a loved one who enjoys spending time in the kitchen, you might consider getting them something they can grow in their home or outdoor space. There are many grow kits available out there, and we especially like how simple Back to the Roots’ grow kits. The best part about their model is their #GrowOneGiveOne campaign -- for every photo featuring their kit, they’ll donate a gardening kit a curriculum to an elementary school of your choice!

Design a planter pot

For the creatives out there, you can gift a one-of-a-kind planter pot designed by you! There are eco-friendly paints you can look into purchasing, but any craft paint you may have around your home should also work well.

Plant a tree

If you’re looking for a meaningful gift that will help fight climate change, consider planting a tree in your loved one’s name. There are many organizations where you can make a donation that goes toward planting a tree, such as:

Added bonus: If you’re looking to do something locally, you can also help plant a tree in your community.

  • Dear Friends! Thank you for your work and for your service!
    Its always interesting for me discover something new and interesting for myself right here.

    Today I made a decision to register and thank you for the work. Today, I happened to be having trouble signing into your internet site from my home IP and had to use one of the VPN services.
    I am not going to promote, but I am going to say that having linked, I breathed a sigh of relief for the first-time my entire life, and today We can visit any closed web site any place in the entire world.
    Before selecting a provider, I had to study for which service is much better for today! I’m not planning to advertise this service, but it’s really cool! Because now I am able to get fast access to any site or application, and all sorts of this is certainly 100% anonymous!!!

    I purchased one of many famous VPN brands. They feature a large number of connections, with six concurrent connections through their network, while all other VPN services offer five or fewer. Well, lastly, my selection of VPN service offers a kill switch function as well as the cap ability to connect VPN via the Tor browser.

    In general, I would suggest watching it!

    All the best, yours forever!
