Air Plants for Valentine's Day: Our Favorite Gift Ideas

2 comments by Anna Kebe

Ah Valentine's Day... a time to show those who mean the most to you how much you love them. While we all love flowers and chocolates as much as the next person, we can’t help but think that the traditional bouquet of roses is a bit played out. Plus, roses die after a week, so you’ve basically spent money on something that won’t be around in March! What’s the fun in that?

The better alternative? Air plants, of course! Not only are air plants unique and beautiful, but they are easy to care for and can last a long time. Just like your love, right?

Whether you’re sending some love to a sweetheart, a family member, or just treating yourself (hey, nothing wrong with that), here are some of our favorite Valentine's Day air plant gifts.

Pink Urchin Plant-O-Gram: Back by popular demand, this little cutie is perfect for the season. It features an Ionantha air plant nestled in a pink sea urchin shell, in a festive branded craft gift box. No matter where your sweetheart lives, they can enjoy a bit of the beach in February (here’s looking at you, my chilly Northern friends). Not to mention, it's an extremely affordable option compared to most gifts.

Not feelin' the pink? Check out our Red Sea Urchin Plant-O-Gram option!

This is definitely a gift that will be enjoyed long after the Russel Stover boxes are marked 50% off.
