If you know someone who has become a houseplant hero these past few years, take a peek at our guide to the best gifts for indoor plant lovers. As a nation, we're all spending more money on indoor foliage than ever before, according to a poll of 2,000 people commissioned by Miracle-Gro, which states it's around £300 a year per person.
Bringing some greenery indoors isn't a bad idea for those who lack adequate garden space. Houseplants enhance the overall appearance of your home - whether you're adding greenery to the bedroom or bathroom. In fact, some studies have shown they boost moods, increase creativity, reduce stress and eliminate air pollutants. Imagine a healthier, happier you.

With that in mind, we've put together the essential gift guide for a loved one who likes an indoor houseplant; that person who has windowsills to die for, talks to plants and or has been observed stroking fern fronds wistfully in B&Q. This is for that person.

What are the best gifts for indoor plant lovers?
Indoor plant lovers will appreciate any gift that feeds on their passion for gardening, complements their indoor greenery, or adds to their overall plant care experience. Here are some thoughtful gift ideas for indoor plant enthusiasts if none of our suggestions take your fancy:
Houseplants: They may already have a large collection, but consider gifting them a special or rare houseplant that they may not already have. Even if it's small like a succulent, they'll likely find a place somewhere in their home to house it!
Decorative pots and planters: It goes without saying, but indoor plant lovers enjoy displaying their green friends in beautiful pots and planters. Look for unique designs that match their overall style.
Plant care accessories: Help them care for their plants with plant care accessories like watering cans, plant mister bottles, plant labels, or indoor plant fertilisers.
Indoor plant experience: Their love for plants doesn't need to be limited to the home. Gift them a local workshop themed on their love of plants, such as a class on plant care, making macrame plant hangers, or terrarium-making. Alternatively, treat them to a visit to gardens that have a greenhouse so they can see rare and unique plants in abundance.
Botanical-themed decor: Help them celebrate their love of plants with tasteful home decor. For example, botanical art prints or illustrations that can be framed and hung on the wall spring to mind.
