Hey you, yes… I’m talking to you over there trying to decide what to buy for the plant addict in your life. Let us help you, Collected will have you covered in no time.
From fellow plant addicts, here are our top picks.
These delightful simple pots from Hay are made from polystone, giving a soft concrete vibe, whilst having different tones running through; no pot will look the same! They come in two colours, black and grey, being a great neutral palette for a gift, which suits any room with its calming charm.
We think these look great paired with a cactus, or even better one of our Charity Spider Babies, which you can purchase from one of our London showrooms. There is no particular reason why we love the two together... we just do.
The pots are available in two sizes, 11cm and 14cm, being perfect for most windowsills, shelves, and mantles.
Price: £14- £16
What every plant lover will know is that once you start to get into plants and gardening, you will need a lot of equipment to look after them (you must take care of your little children!). The problem with this is that you must find places to store all of this equipment, and this is the beauty of our next item.
Unlike a lot of watering cans, this one from Hay is pretty enough to keep on display, so there is no need to try and hide it away in a cabinet. We actually have one in our Wimbledon showroom, in our top floor apartment, which is positioned on a unit above our open plan kitchen and living area. It has no handle and can be used by holding the top of the neck, making it an effortless pour paired with its extra-long spout. It is practical and stylish. What more could you ask for?
Next up is for both indoors and outdoors, being perfect for plants that need to be protected over the winter period.
These planters are designed by Vincent Sheppard, which allow you to display your plants stylishly at different heights, making them a perfect gift for courtyards or hard ground gardens to break up the space and to add some colour. If you are looking to gift more, these planters’ pair beautifully with Vincent Sheppard’s Lounge Chairs e.g. The Roy Cocoon.
Price: £252- £324
As the weather gets colder and starts to change, give a gift that allows a loved one to pamper their plants and to give them a little extra TLC this winter. Norfolk Natural Living’s Indoor Plant Food and Atomiser set is perfect as it is designed to care for your plants all year round, being full of 100% natural ingredients like rich seaweed, helping plants to grow strong and healthy. Give a little spritz here… a little spritz there… and you’re done. Easy right?
For those of you that have more advanced plant addicts in your life, why not gift them something that can safely display all of their plants in a stylish way? Buster + Punch’s Meshed Planter is a functional planter made from solid black steel, being a great piece of furniture to protect and show off someones plant collection as well as store other items of choice. With its meshed detailing, light can softly diffuse through the planter and make a room feel larger, adding to the calming atmosphere.
And that’s it! Our top 5 gifts for plant addicts are complete, however there are lots more items in our plant range for you to explore still. Look at the full range here: https://collected.daytrue.com/collections/plant
