Looking for the perfect gift to give the green thumb in your life? Or maybe you're looking for inspiration while you build your own wish list? Whatever the case, Soltech has created our yearly roundup of perfect plant themed gifts to make shopping a breeze this year! Browse through this collection of carefully curated choices to make sure the gardener in your life feels their heart grow three sizes this holiday season!
1. Indoor Plants
Of course, houseplants are the perfect gift for any gardener this holiday season. In most regions, fears of frost will prevent outdoor gardening for even the most seasoned of growers. Give them the chance to flex their green thumb even in the off season by bringing the party indoors!
Soltech loves this set of 3 pet-friendly baby plants from Rooted. This is the perfect gift for both plant enthusiasts and beginners alike. Carefully curated for aesthetics and ease of care, this is an ideal choice for everyone, from those just starting their plant journey to the more experienced green-thumb. These plants have even been selected to keep your watering schedule to one day a week.
There’s also a plant in this set to suit the lighting needs of your recipient, but you can tailor their gift even more by getting them a grow light to ensure the ideal environment for your indoor plant enthusiast year round.
2. Indoor Plant Subscription
A plant subscription is the perfect gift for the avid gardener in your life, especially those seeking to explore new plant varieties. Soltech loves this service from the Sill, which allows the customer to tailor their gift to different needs. For beginners, there's the easy care selection, perfect for those just starting their green journey. If they're a pet lover, there's a pet-friendly choice that ensures their furry friends stay safe around the plants. The Sill even offers an orchid subscription, allowing for those who want to indulge in the allure and challenge of these elegant blooms.
With a 3-month or 6-month package, you can best cater to your loved one's gardening commitment. Each fulfillment of the subscription comes with a stylish ceramic planter, making it a complete package ready for their living space. To provide peace of mind, each plant also includes a 30-day guarantee on each delivery, ensuring your thoughtful gift is a source of joy stemming from healthy plants from the very first day.
3. Grow Lights
When it comes to finding the perfect gift for indoor plant enthusiasts, grow lights are a game-changer. Soltech, the leader in interior decor plant lighting, has just the solution this season. Gift their flagship product, the Aspect, and see how your loved ones' garden flourishes.
The Aspect boasts a bright white LED spectrum that ensures optimal growth for indoor plants. Every fixture promises a lifespan of 15 years. Hand-built in the US, this grow light is a symbol of top-tier craftsmanship and quality. Setting it up is a breeze, making it a user-friendly choice for those who aren’t looking for a full home renovation.
Even better, Soltech is partnering with Arber this holiday season to create the perfect bundle. With all the necessary ingredients for perfect plant care, you can ensure you're giving more than just a present; you're empowering the indoor garden enthusiast in your life to take their plant care to the next level.
4. Decorative Plant Pots
Decorative planters are a great choice for stylish gardeners who want to dress up their greenery even more. We love this set of three planters from Terrain. Crafted from durable ceramic, these planters are designed for indoor use, bringing a touch of timeless elegance to any living space. Each planter includes a drainage hole for proper water management. A hassle-free addition to any home, they can be effortlessly wiped clean with a damp cloth. The trio features three sizes - small, medium, and large, allowing your loved one to curate their space with flair.
5. Plant Art
Are you gifting to a houseplant lover who finds it challenging to maintain an extensive collection of live plants? Well, help them grow their green collection with this digital download art collection from Etsy. This printable gallery is an innovative way to bring the beauty of plants into their living space without the commitment of live plant care.
This is a great choice for shoppers as well, who are looking for a thoughtful- if somewhat last minute- gift. This selection’s digital format allows for instant access to the artwork. Besides the convenience of this quick gift, shoppers also have the flexibility to choose the size of the art. Customize the art to fit their available wall space perfectly.
6. Plant Books
The "Drunken Botanist" by Amy Stewart is a great gift for plant lovers with a passion for both gardening and mixology. Delve into the world of plants, fruits, fungi, all while exploring their role in the art of fermentation and distillation. With over 50 cocktail recipes, it offers a unique blend of horticultural knowledge and mixological creativity to keep every reader entertained from cover to cover.
Soltech especially loves this special edition from Pottery Barn. Bound in leather and featuring an embossed front cover, this book is an elegant addition to any bookshelf, coffee table, or even a bar cart! Pair with a Grove™ to grow a selection of the herbs from the book for a complete display!
7. Terrarium Kits:
A terrarium is a fantastic gift for plant lovers, offering a miniature, self-contained ecosystem that's both visually captivating and low-maintenance. Soltech's top terrarium choice, available on Etsy through FoxyGreensTerrariums, is a stellar pick. Each one is crafted to order in the FoxyGreensTerrariums studio, ensuring quality and artistry.
One of the standout features of this gift is the customization options. Choose whether the terrarium features a door or not, as well as the type of metal framing – black, copper, or silver. All models are thoughtfully designed with 2mm/0.07”. They're also perfectly sized, allowing your gift recipient to curate their own selection of ferns, moss, succulents, cacti, or other plants, creating a personalized, living work of art.
8. Plant Themed Apparel
Gardening apparel makes a great gift for indoor gardeners. This year, Soltech's top choice is this smock from Hedley & Bennett.

9. Novelty Gifts
Novelty gifts for indoor plant enthusiasts are a delightful way to celebrate their love for greenery. When it comes to adding a touch of nature to their home decor, pillows can be an excellent choice. Green Philosophy is a Soltech favorite, and we especially love their fun collection of pillows shaped like leaves from different plant species.
Green Philosophy's leaf-shaped pillows bring a playful and botanical flair to any indoor garden oasis. These decorative pillows are crafted with great attention to detail, capturing the essence of various leaf shapes and textures. They not only provide a charming addition to the living space but also offer a cozy, nature-inspired touch to relax on.

That's no problem- let’s go back to the basics with a round up of high quality staples that have proved tried and true for Soltech year after year!
Stainless Steel Watering Can
A sturdy, versatile watering can is always a safe bet for a plant parent. This stainless steel brass-plated watering can is not only beautiful, but the narrow spout makes it perfect for watering small plants with hard-to-water roots, such as bonsai. A watering can such as this one is more than just practical, but an artful addition to any plant display.
Whether going on vacation or simply needing a bit of leeway when watering, a self-watering planter can make a plant parent’s life much easier. When the soil is getting dry, the planter pulls water from the tray underneath. This inexpensive option is suitable for indoors or outdoors and comes in a variety of colors, and your friend will thank you for taking some of the stress away from watering.
Winter brings dry air, both inside and out. If your friends are worried about their plants getting the humidity they need, consider gifting a humidifier. The Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier - White, HCM-350 is small, and has 3 speed settings to adjust moisture output and sound level. This will fit snugly near any plant display and help your plant-lover ensure all their hard work is not going to waste.
If you know someone who has seemingly endless plants but not much counter space, this ladder plant stand is a great space-saving option. It comes with 5 pots perfect for small plants, like succulents or herbs, and can be leaned against any wall, adding decor while eliminating clutter on the windowsills.
For a friend who loves incorporating plants into all aspects of design, these terrarium candles are a great find. The intricate detail of the wax combined with the rich scents of premium fragrance oil makes these candles a memorable 2-in-1 present.
Wellness by Design
Wellness by Design: A Room-by-Room Guide to Optimizing Your Home for Health, Fitness, and Happiness is a great book for any plant lover. This interior-design guide will give ideas on where and how to best organize plants to meet any personal needs and desires for the household.
Pruning is an important part of caring for many plants, especially trees. When leaves are dying or stems are overgrowing, a reliable pair of pruners will always come in handy. Consider gifting the Tabor Tools Stainless Steel Straight Pruning Scissors; they have easy-grip handles and a long reach, making trimming small and large plants painless.
Everybody could use a composting bin in their home, but especially people with tons of plants that are always being fertilized. This countertop compost bin has a lid to prevent spills and replaceable filters to block odor. Any plant-lover will be excited to recycle their food scraps to enrich their soil and reduce their use of store-bought fertilizer.
Do you know anyone whose gardening hobby is bordering on an obsession? Are their shelves already cluttered to jungle level proportions?

Plant shelves can also double as book shelves, and we here at Soltech think that’s a beautiful thing. If the plant-lover in your life is also a bookworm, these gorgeous, etched steel bookmarks will hold their page for them while they do their watering.
Spill-proof Plant Glass
It’s not easy being a plant parent. Whether the gardener in your life needs a jump start to their day with a nice cup of iced coffee or wants to sip a cocktail to relax at the end of the day, they can do it in spill-proof style with this glass.
