10 Christmas Gift Ideas for Succulent Lovers!
Know a succulent lover but don’t know what to get them for Christmas? Not to worry! Here are 10 gift ideas for the #succulover in your life for the holidays!
1. Succulent Pack
Is there such a thing as too many plants? Possibly, but the answer for succulent collectors is NEVER. By gifting a mixed variety, there’s bound to be something that the collector will fall in love with!
Instead of a pack, you could send a succulent subscription from Leaf & Clay!
2. Succulent Art
Easy to wrap and even easier to take care of (no maintenance!), succulent art is a surefire win for plant enthusiasts.
3. Succulent Pillows
These beautiful pillows would make any seating area welcoming — and they look so real!
4. Succulent Seeds Mix
Most enthusiasts work on growing their collection by propagating. But what about by seed? This surprise seed box provides a variety of seeds, which may include Echeveria, cactus, lithops, conophytum, and more!
5. A Wreath of Plant Cheer
A beautiful wreath doesn’t always have to be made out of tree foliage — this living wreath is made with various sedums, echeverias, crassulas, and more. The plants can be kept in the wreath or replanted, making this gift something that can live beyond the holidays!
6. Bullet Journal Accessories
If the person you’re buying for is into bullet journaling, you can always gift them stickers and washi tape!
Grow their collection with a cold-hardy grab bag of sempervivum aka hens and chicks! Since these are hardy from zones 5 – 10, they can be grown outside in most sections of the United States!
8. A Fun Pot
9. Succulent Workshops
There are some nurseries, local shops, or plant lovers/influencers who run workshop events where participants can create their own succulent wreaths or arrangements. You can search on Eventbrite or look through Facebook events in your gift recipient’s location to see if such a plant event is taking place!

10. Something Rare and Unusual
Do you really want to WOW this person? No matter the cost?
Look for variegated or crested succulents. What does that mean? Variegated means that the plant has a mutation in its coloring — this is different from sun or cold stress, where a plant may turn pink, red, or dark with environmental stress. Variegation usually happens with pink or white coloring in the leaves. Crested succulents are a result of mutation or damage, in where the plant grows multiple heads/sections like a fan instead of what would be considered “normal”.
