Our Top 5 Most Romantic Houseplants to Give as Gifts

Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, an upcoming wedding or anniversary, you’re trying to impress your crush, or you just need to give yourself some TLC, all we have to say is: flowers are not the answer. Plant fam, there are SO many romantic plants out there that will stick around much longer than even the best-cared-for fresh bouquet of flowers. Whether you want a fairytale look featuring dreamy plant trails or something more obvious (like heart-shaped leaves), we are here to help you fulfill your romantic plant dreams and give you major ideas for your next gift to a loved one!

Not a fern person? This Philo’s got your back. These dreamy leaves quickly become charming trails of hearts dangling downwards, making them especially lovely. Maybe the new mistletoe? 💋




3. Anthurium

For those who are trying to get into gifting plants rather than flowers, Anthurium (Flamingo Lily) adds that little pop of floral color that makes the perfect baby step. Enjoy the lush green foliage after the flowers fade away!
