Birthday plant gift ideas

It can be difficult to find the perfect plant for your loved one's birthday, so we’ve pulled together some that work particularly well as a birthday present to give you some inspiration.

For adding vibrant colours to the recipient’s space, check out our flowering plants that bloom beautifully with the right care. Alternatively, for those less than green-fingered, we have a great selection of easy-care foliage plants that require less care, but still look just as beautiful in any home.

Keen gardeners will enjoy our selection of garden plants for their birthday. Even those folk that prefer to sit back and enjoy their garden or balcony will love our outdoor flowering plants.

For something really special, why not introduce someone to citrus plants with a lemon tree? And for those who are experienced citrus plant growers, we have some more unusual varieties available too such as finger lime to add to their collection.

Not sure what plant someone would like? We have a selection of Plants4Presents gift vouchers to suit all budgets so that they can choose their ideal plant with us online. Our vouchers are available in nominations of £10, £25, £30 and £50, you can even purchase multiple if you really want to spoil someone!

Still not sure? Then please do contact us and we will be happy to help you find the perfect plant gift for your friend, colleague, family member, or partner.

Benefits of plants as birthday presents

A beautiful plant is the perfect gift idea for a birthday.

  • It will last for weeks and often years making it much better value than cut flowers which are dead within a week.
  • Houseplants are air purifiers and create a healthier environment in the home.
  • All plants have huge benefits for our good mental health and well-being. Caring for a plant has been shown to reduce anxiety.
  • Even if you're short on time, we have loads of low maintenance plants available, so you can still enjoy some welcome colour and greenery in your home, balcony or garden.
  • We have plant gifts to suit every budget.
  • Often plants have a special meaning or memory, and are an incredibly thoughtful way of letting someone you know how much you care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your birthday plants?

Our birthday plants are a range of our flowering and fruiting plants and trees which we think would make the best birthday gifts. Typically they are plants that are looking particularly good at this time of year or that have a birthday ‘theme’ or variety name. We update this selection regularly to reflect the plants that are in season and looking their best at the nursery from week to week.

How quickly can you deliver a birthday plant gift?

As long as you place your order by 3pm we can get your plants to you the next day with our next day delivery service.

Can I place an order for a birthday delivery well ahead of time?

Yes of course, when placing your order you can select a date that suits you and the recipient. You might want to choose the actual birthday or even a day earlier, so that your gift is with them in good time for their special day. When you place an order in advance the plant is reserved for you and then despatched on an overnight service to arrive on the day you requested. With both our Royal Mail and Courier services you will then receive automated tracking information to let you know your gift is on it’s way and when it has been delivered.

What plants would you recommend for somebody's birthday?

This really depends on the person you are buying for. We have a range of beautiful flowering plants, garden plants, edible plants, houseplants and trees within this birthday selection so you can choose the best plant that suits you and the recipient. You can use the filters provided to narrow the selection to indoor or outdoor positions, by price or size to help you choose. Alternatively, give our knowledgeable team at the nursery a call and they will be happy to advise on what is looking best.

Do you sell gift sets for birthdays?

Yes we do, we offer a selection of gift sets that make great gifts for birthdays including our G&T gift set. You can also add extra miniature bottles of gin and tonic, or bottles of wine to many of our plant gifts when you go through to the basket to make your gift even more special.
