Is it just me or is everyone houseplant obsessed at the moment? Speaking on behalf of myself and my friends who love sending proud pics of their new houseplant purchases as well as more sorry looking snaps along with pleas for help. What I've come to realise is that for houseplant lovers, there is no such thing as too many!
If you're anything like me, almost as soon as I position a new one I'm already thinking about what other varieties I could add to the display. Which is why plant gifts will always be gratefully received! Black Friday weekend is a great chance to pick up a bargain while you're doing your Christmas shopping so I've pulled out some pretty gifts which I know my friends and family would love to get for Christmas.
From pretty pots to festive flowers these gifts will be popular across all ages and tastes. So scroll down for a selection of the best house plant deals to gift this Christmas. Or simply treat yourself, I'm certainly not judging! Want even more great deals? You'll find lots to inspire in our dedicated Black Friday 2020 deals feature.
