Giving plant gifts for Christmas has always brought joy – even before “green” was a trend. So, for this year’s holiday shopping, get back in touch with a time-honored tradition. Our plant gift guide features something for everyone on your list within any budget!
Send Plants as Gifts for Under $30
Finding reasonably priced plants to give for Christmas Secret Santa trades, holiday parties and more is well within reach. Check out these fun and fresh herb kits – great for foodies, small-space gardeners or young green thumbs in the making.

And it all comes in an “eco-chic” package, attractive enough to present with just a simple bow or rattan ribbon.

There’s something so satisfying about growing your own food. Now, spread the organic gardening love this Christmas by gifting a simple windowsill sprouting kit. Online at Giving Plants, customers will find options that produce edibles in as little as five or six days!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Her
Whether it’s your mom, wife, girlfriend or sister, these plant gift ideas are sure to please – and for less than $60.
This gorgeous floral kit is the total holiday package. Peppermint-striped amaryllis bulbs and a soil-less growing medium come prettily packaged in the same container you plant in. A cheerful red bow tops it all off – ready for nestling under the tree. Also available in Red Amaryllis and Paperwhite bulb varieties.
The holidays are all about silver and gold and purple. That’s right, purple! Wintertime can get a little dreary and so a little pop of color goes a long way. Lively campanula makes a great house plant to brighten up drab January days. Great for green thumbs who refuse to hibernate all winter.
Something A Little Different this Season
For gift recipients who love the unexpected, these not-so traditional options are swoon-worthy. And when you send living plants as gifts, the joy lasts well beyond the holidays.
Peace on Earth and goodwill toward men – a classic holiday sentiment. Looking to express that kind of harmonious feeling in an outside-the-Christmas-box way? Bamboo’s the ticket. This plant is priced at less than $30, making it a great middle of the road option for wild cards on your holiday shopping list. Want something similar but a little more extravagant? Then this Three-Tier Lucky Bamboo Arrangement might be for you.
This one’s for the adventurous, try-anything spirit. Each Bonsai Box comes with all the tools necessary to grow the dawn redwood tree from seed. And it’s all wrapped up in a steel gift package that also doubles as the planter. Talk about an eco-friendly offering for any tinkerers or botany-enthusiasts on your list! Also a great item for office gift trades or Secret Santa’s with a $50 limit.
