Whether it’s a birthday, graduation, or just a simple gift to say you care, there’s no better present than a brand new plant.

We’ve rounded up our favorite plants for everyone on your list, from your parents to your best friend:

1. Your Mom

If your mom is a big decorator and loves getting your home ready to guests over, the Pink Anthurium is for her. Whether she places it on the family mantle or creates a centerpiece for your dining room table, she’ll love the fresh feel and long-lasting blooms.

Shop the Pink Anthurium ($68+ at

2. Your Dad

Sometimes, fathers can be hard to buy for (especially if he’s the kind of guy that already has everything!). Don’t worry: our low-light favorite Snake Plant Laurentii or bright-light loving Monstera Deliciosa are two great picks that will keep him happy.

Shop the Snake Plant Laurentii ($43+ at and the Monstera Deliciosa ($67+ at

3. Your Grandmother

If your grandmother is an old school cool kind of woman, get her a White Orchid. It will immediately help her to remember the good old days while making new memories.
