A Fun, Educational and Experience-Driven Gift
Kids have a growing need for meaningful memories and new experiences. That’s why a plant makes such an exceptional gift! Whether you're celebrating a birthday, a graduation, a new baby or anything else, a plant is the perfect way to give a gift that grows along with the kids in your life.
There are countless plants that make great gifts, suited for all ages and levels of experience. And many have unique benefits that both kids and adults will find fascinating!
Our Favorite Gifts for Kids
A few of our favorites include:
Honeycrisp Apple Tree: A favorite to eat and to grow! Living up to their name, this orchard staple is beloved for its yellow-red fruit and balanced taste. If you want to teach your child the basics of gardening, there's no better gateway tree. Honeycrisp Trees reach a manageable height of about 14-18 feet, and can produce fruit in their first year! And, its easy growth and basic care requirements will allow kids to build confidence in plant care.
Fruit Cocktail Tree: Want to level up your fruit tree gift? The Fruit Cocktail Tree is a perfect choice - especially for kids. They'll love the surprise and novelty of multiple fruits on one tree - and you'll get an assortment of delicious peaches and plums!
Monstera Deliciosa: Kids will love the delightfully-named Monstera Deliciosa, or Swiss Cheese Plant. Tall, tropical leaves fan out dramatically with perforated edges. At their largest, leaves get up to 2 feet wide. This is a statement houseplant that will be fun for kids and families to watch grow.
Snake Plant: This house plant is attractive and incredibly easy to grow - making it perfect for kids who are just learning plant care. If you have a young, plant-loving child, this is an excellent, low-maintenance choice. They can be neglected for weeks at a time without serious damage occurring - and they look great potted around your home!
Snowball Bush: Any plant with a heavy flowering habit is likely to captivate children - especially younger ones. These specimens are worth the minimal upkeep. In the spring, they show clusters of light green flowers that brighten to a dazzling white by summer. They’re relatives of honeysuckle, and are prone to abundant blooming seasons. You can trim these bushes to any size or shape you’d like.
A Plant for Every Occasion - And Every Kid!
Selecting a kid-friendly plant as a gift is a truly rewarding experience. Like every plant, every child is different - that means you can try to find a species that mimics the qualities of the recipient!
Bold, outgoing, colorful children will love flowers and fast-growing plants. Focused, studious kids may prefer a plant that requires more care and cultivation. Older kids and young teens may enjoy growing their own fruit.
Birthdays are a perfect occasion to give plants that can grow along with the child. And many plants make symbolic and heartfelt gifts for graduations, births, or other moments of achievement. Plants can be given to teach lessons about accountability, development, and nurturing. And of course, there doesn’t need to be an occasion at all - just an opportune moment to share appreciation and a fun new experience with the kids in your life.
Including Children in Plant Care
For young children, plants are more of a visual gift to be enjoyed. Young children may not be interested in or able to help with plant care - rather, a gifted plant can be used to commemorate an occasion and grow alongside the child (think a Flowering Cherry Tree to commemorate a new baby).
At ages 5-9, kids are more curious and interested in new experiences and knowledge. This is a perfect time to introduce plants with minimally complex care, but consistent upkeep - like a small, leafy houseplant. Such potted varieties lend themselves to simple watering and basic pruning - easy for young children to help with.
Kids in the age range of 10-14 are typically ready for more responsibility. Here, you can encourage them to cultivate a small garden or tend to food-growing plants. You can use plants to introduce practices such as mulching, watering, weeding, and other care. At this age, a mutual goal can help adults and kids share an enriching experience.
Plants: A Purposeful Present
Plants make incredible gifts for children, because they're filled with meaning. Plants can be used to teach, express, and nurture relationships for kids of all ages. With a little searching, you can find a plant that makes the perfect gift for kids!
