The popularity of plants has soared over the last couple of years, and I’m not at all embarrassed to admit that I’m an enthusiastic plant lady. They’re beautiful, and clean the air we breath, so what’s not to like? If you have a plant lady in your life, here are some ideas for holiday gifts. (Adding all of these to my own wish list, except for the book Plant Craft, which I already have and recommend.)
I know it’s getting so close to Christmas that international shipping is definitely out of the question, so I included a couple of similar items available from Etsy sellers in different countries, and noted the shop locations when the info was available.
Jungle tote | Plants and cats pin (UK) | Trio plant hanger | Monstera earrings (US) | Plant mister | Chinese money plant (US) |
Marblelized planters | Plant love patch | Best fronds enamel pin pair (US) | Planter set with tray | “DIY Succulents” book | Houseplants mug | Monstera pin | “Plant Craft” book
These key ring gift tags came about because I’ve been concentrating on gift wrapping ideas lately (splatter paint and stamping), and I started thinking about how it would be cool if the gift tag was part of the gift.
I know that not everyone has the tools and supplies for metal stamping, so there are two options here, a metal version and a wood version. Either one makes a cute key chain that you can use year-round!

Over the years I’ve created a lot of projects that would make good gifts, so today I’m sharing a list of DIY gift ideas that there’s still plenty of time to make for Christmas. From your favorite plant lady, to your brother or your dad, I’ve got you covered!
I should probably be concentrating less on wrapping Christmas presents and more on actually buying them, but here’s another wrapping idea: stamped wrapping paper. It’s super easy and hardly takes any extra time, but it’s a nice personal touch that can be as simple or as elaborate as you want.
When you’re new to eating a plant-based diet, it can be easy to just stick with pre-made substitutes for your favorite recipes that feature dairy and meat. And there’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, but if you’re trying to eat as many vegetables as possible, it’s kind of a missed opportunity. These vegan enchiladas are loaded with vegetables like beans, broccoli, bell pepper, and spinach, for a truly plant-based meal.
