Houseplant gifting has no limits, whether you’re looking for something under £20, a festive plant favourite or a health conscious air purifying plants bundle.

Here’s our top 10 Christmas houseplant gift ideas

Waxed Amaryllis Bulbs

A Christmas favourite is the Waxed Amaryllis bulbs. That comes in an array of different colours. They are quite possibly the easiest care flowering plant you could gift this Christmas. They need no pot and no water… yes that’s right they need NOTHING. The wax covering keeps all the moisture inside and allows the bulb to bloom into a stunning flower.

Waxed Amaryllis Jumpers

For those of you that like an added extra, there are also the Amaryllis waxed bulbs sporting a glittery Christmas jumper. They’re the same care as the normal waxed bulbs and also take between 4 to 6 weeks to reach blooming. Each bulb will bloom 2-3 flowering stems and each stem will have 3-4 flowers coming from it. Making them the perfect houseplant gift.

Chinese Money Plant 

The Chinese Money Plant's botanical name is Pilea Peperomioides and they are another fantastic easy-care houseplant. They have round disc-like foliage that look as if they balance on the delicate stems. They make the perfect houseplant gift as they require medium to low daylight and are considered non-toxic plants to pets.

Anthurium Red Champion 

These stunning colourful plants are native to Columbia and are sometimes known as the Flamingo Lily. They host a wax-like, red heart-shaped leaf with vibrant yellow tails. They are perfect over the Christmas season bringing colour and edge to all home interiors. A top tip is they are the perfect bathroom plant as they can sustain humid environments.

Easy Care/Air Purifying Bundle 

Looking to spend a little more this Christmas? Well we’ve carefully constructed two high quality houseplant bundles. For the busy or newbie plant parents, our easy-care houseplant bundle is constructed of three extremely low maintenance choices. 

The Air Purifying houseplant bundle is for the health conscious plant fans. These plants have been carefully considered due to their tendency to take in carbon dioxide in the home and release oxygen. With stress relief and sleep promotion both being added benefits.
