Collapsible Watering Can
The watering can is a staple of the plant lover’s home, but it’s certainly not the most space-friendly part of their garden. For those plant lovers that simply can’t set aside the space for a standard 1.5-gallon watering can, the Colapz watering can is the compact gift that they need. When collapsed, a silicone band secures the can, allowing plant enthusiasts to confidently pack it away until the next time they need to water their plants.

What’s better than gifting a single flower to a plant lover? Gifting them an entire ecosystem, that’s what! This set includes all the tools you need to transform a standard 10-gallon fish tank into a fully sustainable aquaponic system. The fish in the tank will produce bacteria to fertilize the plants that grow above them; meanwhile, the plants will clean the water in the tank.

In this system, you can grow almost any type of greenery imaginable, from herbs and vegetables to decorative grasses. The kit comes with a detachable light bar, so it can be stored in areas with little to no natural light. It also includes plenty of detailed instructions to help you get started.

Its lid is enhanced with charcoal to prevent any foul odors from escaping the bin. Best of all, it makes a cute and kitschy kitchen accessory!
Stand-Up Weed Puller
Weeding is, without a doubt, the most unpleasant part of outdoor gardening. It can’t be avoided, as weeds will hoard nutrients that other plants need to grow. But weeds also tend to arm themselves with self-defense mechanisms, like sharp spurs or skin irritants, that make them difficult for gardeners to eradicate by hand. This weed puller enables gardeners and plant lovers to tear weeds out by the root while still maintaining their distance. At 39 inches, it’s also long enough to be used while standing, so it’s a must-have for any plantsman or plant lady with knee or back pain.

DeWit Wooden Dibber
Every green thumb knows that gardening is a science, and like any science, every step must be approached with accuracy and foresight.

Seed & Seedling Spacer Tool
Once their seeds have germinated, your gardener is ready to plant them in the soil – or are they? Plants, much like the rest of the world right now, depend on social distancing in order to thrive.

Plants will love the refreshing spritz of hydration; and the recipient will love the easy-to-use, no-spill mister. This is one gift your plant lover won’t want to miss-ter!
In this age of modern technology and mass production, it can be challenging to find meaningful gifts for plant lovers in your life. Plant lovers crave connection with nature, so one obvious choice is to give them a living plant or flower as a gift. But if you’re not a gardening expert yourself, it can be overwhelming to weed through the available options. Every plant has unique requirements, from light levels to watering schedules to the type of soil they like to grow in. Do you know which direction this person’s home or yard faces? Whether their soil is alkaline or acidic? If they have the right tools to trim and prune the plant?
There’s an undeniable element of stress in choosing a plant for someone else to care for. It’s almost like buying a puppy for someone without their consent. Will the breed suit their taste? What if it grows up to be too big for their home? What if it turns out to be a high-maintenance trouble maker in the end? What if it triggers their allergies? What if they don’t have the time or resources needed to care for it?
Don’t worry–there are plenty of other ways you can please a plant lover without ever setting foot in a nursery. Above is a list of the best gifts for plant lovers that will suit almost any taste – all items that help to make gardening or in-home plant care simple, convenient, and beautiful, without demanding any more time or energy than the recipient is ready to spare.
