Keep reading to learn about the benefits of succulents and tips on choosing the perfect succulent gift plant.
Succulents make great gifts for anyone
Succulents are versatile and wholesome gifts. Who wouldn’t love to brighten up their home or workspace with a living gift? Gifting a succulent is a symbol of good fortune, prosperity and growth — the perfect gift recipe to make anyone in your life feel loved and appreciated. Succulent plant gifts are also a blessing to the earth. No waste or unnecessary spending is involved, it will complement any personal decor style, and can be used to adorn any space around the house or office, both indoor and outdoor.
Succulents keep growing, bringing joy and putting a smile on faces long after you have gifted it. These plants are low maintenance and resilient, making them super easy to take care of. You don’t need to be a pro gardener to keep a succulent alive! Since succulents can also easily be propagated, it’s a wonderful plant to give to a beginner gardener who is still learning the tricks and trades of growing their own plants.
The best succulents to send as gift plants
Succulents come in many shapes, sizes, textures and colours, leaving you spoilt for choice. The Haworthia Zebra, or Zebra Plant, is one of our favourite budget-friendly succulents. A hardy and low maintenance plant, this succulent is used to dry conditions and can go without water for a couple of weeks at a time (ideal for a forgetful plant lover or someone who is often away from home). Zebra Plants are also pet-friendly, which is an added bonus for households with curious pets.
Another one of our top picks for succulent gifts is the Jade Plant, also known by various other names such as Money Tree/Plant, Lucky Plant and Friendship Tree, and recognised by its unique round and fleshy leaves. As you can gather from these names, this plant radiates good vibes! The easy-to-grow, evergreen Jade Plant symbolises good luck, prosperity and long-lasting friendship — a beautiful meaning when gifting this plant to a special person in your life. We also love the simple Moon Cactus, the impressive Mother-In-Law’s-Tongue and the one-of-a-kind String of Dolphins.
If you can’t quite decide on a succulent, you can always go for the beautiful coral sea succulent bowl, a unique arrangement of fresh succulents in a stylish boat-shaped Ecopot bowl that is made of recycled plastics.
