6 Indoor Plants That Make Great Christmas Gifts

Dec 18, 2015

Are you still looking for the perfect Christmas gift for that friend of family member that seems to have everything? Indoor plants make great gifts because they can last all year round – and they require minimal wrapping skills.

Here are 6 indoor plants that make great gifts because they are easily cared for, inexpensive, and beautiful.

Spider Plant

As one of the plants that NASA determined to be particularly effective in purifying the air, the Spider Plant make for a wonderful and easily cared for plant. Their shoots turn into mini plants and can be cut off, potted, and given to someone else as a present.

Peace Lily

Also known by their Latin name, Spathiphyllum, the Peace Lily is perfect for homes that do not get a lot of sunlight, but still want to add greenery to a living space. They have also been mentioned by NASA as a suggestion for air purification and will shoot up lovely white blossoms a few times a year.

Christmas Cactus

The Christmas Cactus will continue to grow and develop flowers as it gets older. The flowers come in a variety of colors, ranging from white to deep pink, flaming red, and a bright coral.

African Violets

These beautiful flowers prefer indirect indoor lighting, making them perfect for many households that are not in sunny areas. Giving your loved ones these plants in a lovely pot alone or with different color flowers make for a lovely gift. African Violets do require a bit of specialized care, as they must be watered so that their leaves do not get wet and a special fertilizer must be used.


Ferns have a great way of filling up drab corners and bringing them to life. They are hearty and lively plants that make great gifts for new plant owners. The only finicky problem that ferns present is their aversion to the cold. Before taking them out into the cold or elements, even just from the store to the car, cover them or put them in a bag so that they do not suffer from shock in the elements.


One of the most popular plants of the moment, succulents make the perfect gift for forgetful gardeners. They are easily cared for and always in style. Their color variation ranges from blue-green to pink, red, burgundy, and many other colors and combinations of colors.

It’s not too late to consider purchasing your loved ones amazing indoor plants as an amazing Christmas gift! Contact us today!
