plant lover gifts

Some people don’t stop at gardening outside—they keep on growing until every square inch of the inside of their homes are covered in greenery, too. Chances are you know someone like this. Maybe it sounds a lot like you.

These days, women who are completely obsessed with their plant babies are calling themselves Crazy Plant Ladies (CPL for short), a name they wear with pride. Being a CPL is about more than liking houseplants—it’s an identity. (Check out this story about a woman who has 670 houseplants in her apartment.) I know, the whole concept might seem a bit weird to non-plant-obsessed folks, but even if you don’t completely understand the love the CPL in your life has for her green babes, you can still show her you appreciate her and her quirky lifestyle with a thoughtful gift.

(Brag your love of gardening with the Organic Life 2018 Wall Calendar, featuring gorgeous photographs, cooking tips and recipes, plus how to eat more—and waste less—of what's in season.)

As a CPL myself, I can assure that the items below will definitely bring a smile to a fellow CPL’s face. This guide ranges in price, functionality, and style, so it’s bound to help you cross at least one plant-lover off your shopping list. In the mix, we’ve got everything from stocking stuffer socks, notebooks, and makeup bags, to wow-ing brass hangers, fish tanks, and watering cans. Trust us on this one, your CPL will be happier than a re-potted lemon tree.
