Pink Urchin with Tillandsia Ionantha Air Plant in a Gift Box with Pink and Red Confetti Paper

Sending Some Air Plant Love

by Jamie Beck

Don’t get me wrong, I love flowers. I love getting flowers and I’ve sent my fair share as well. There is something really nice about knowing that someone you love will get a delivery that will stop them in their tracks and brighten their day.  But I have a few issues with flower delivery.

1. It’s expensive. I’m not trying to be cheap here but, seriously, $50 to deliver someone a bouquet that probably cost $9 at the grocery store? 

2.  Flowers die. They are pretty for a week, MAYBE a little longer if you remember to change the water. 

3. It’s kind of expected. And especially on days like Valentines Day when everyone gives and gets flowers. Not to mention the fact that since it’s Valentines Day, up goes the price for that slightly different version of the same bouquet you sent to her office last year.

Yes, flower delivery is sweet. But wouldn’t it be fun to send something a little unexpected this year? Not to mention, something that will last months, maybe even years, instead of die in a week or so?

Ladies and gentlemen, may we present the Valentines Day Plant-O-Gram:


Pink Urchin with Tillandsia Ionantha Air Plant and Decorated Gift Box


Here’s why you should send this little buddy to your special someone.

1.It’s affordable.

2.Air plants are easy to care for and last way longer than a bouquet of flowers. Sure you could send a potted plant, but hello headache for anyone without a green thumb. So the lucky recipient will be able to gaze at your gift for a long time, not just a week or two.

 3.It is totally NOT your grandma’s flower delivery. We can pretty much guarantee you that this will not be a gift they expect.
