Is your Valentine your BFF, your roommate or your GALentine?

Is your Valentine your BFF, your roommate or your GALentine?

There’s something a little sad and morbid about gifting a bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day. Sure, they look nice, but then they die after a week. Is that the message you want to send to your loved one?

Good news: love isn’t dead, as long as you plant it (and water it from time to time). This year, we’re all about a better way to do Valentine’s Day. Skip the cheesy stuffed animal, flower murder, and generic jewellery for something that lasts a little longer – just like your relationship. Whether you choose to spend the day doing romantic activities, swiping through Tinder, or hanging with your besties, we’ve got a plant for that. Check out our ultimate gift guide to find the perfect succulent or plant for that special someone, no matter who you celebrate with this Valentine’s Day.

If your Valentine is...that someone special

Variety is the spice of life, and a great way to spice up your relationship is by adding some succulents into the mix! There’s no better way to show you’re ready to take the relationship to the next level than with an assorted succulent pack. This is the gift that says “I’m ready to share the responsibility of caring for something with you...just not a pet or a baby.” At the end of the day, everyone is a sucker for succulents.

If your Valentine is...your office BFF

Get some good karma by gifting an office space plant to Karen in Accounting, or help your work BFF spruce up their desk by giving plants on Valentine’s Day! Plants are the gift that keeps on giving, especially in a busy office space. Spruce up your desk, boost productivity, purify the air (especially after Kevin from Marketing brings tuna for lunch...again), promote your mental health, and increase creativity! Giving a plant to a coworker is the same as giving a plant to yourself: and since the average person spends 90,000 hours of their life at work, this is the gift that keeps on giving.


If your Valentine is...your GALentine

Valentine’s Day is all about spending time with your soulmate, aka your best gal pal. Spread the love by gifting your bestie a Chinese Money Plant. The "Pilea Peperomioides," Chinese money plant (or as some call them, “Pancake Plants”) are THE sought-after houseplant of the year. As legend goes, these plants are originally from the southwestern Yunnan province of China. A Norwegian missionary took cuttings home back to Norway in the 1940s and shared them with friends and family. Share the wealth and spread the love by continuing the tradition!

If your Valentine is...your roommate

Did someone say jungle vibes? Turn your shared apartment into a jungalow by gifting your roommate with some tropical-inspired greenery! Adulting is hard, but taking care of these plants is not. These plants are hard to kill, so even when you go away for a weekend your roommate won’t be able to murder your plants by forgetting to water them. Plus: plants remove toxins from the air, keep the room cool, act as natural humidifiers, and distract from dirty dishes in the sink. Stay classy with these jungle plants!

If your Valentine is... your furry friend

There’s nothing better than coming home to unconditional love from your furry friend each day. (Yes, even cats love their owners in their own specific way...) Show you love them back by brightening up your space with some plant life. Be careful: some of the most beautiful plants can be harmful to our beloved pets. Show your pet that you love them by not poisoning them with the perfect pet-friendly plant pack. We did the research, and here’s how to brighten up your home with some gorgeous greenery that isn’t putting your biggest fan at risk.


If your Valentine is...your big sister

The family that plants together, grows together, as they say. Get matching succulents in our "small gesture" pack to remind your family that they matter most. Stylish and simple, these little plants are perfect for that table tops. Plus, you’ll get karma points for the next family reunion!

If your Valentine is...yourself

Celebrate the love of your life – yourself! Take Valentine’s Day as the perfect excuse to start a new hobby that lets you set aside a little “me” time each week. The Mr. Kitly Pots and Plants combo includes a lightweight, self-watering (read: fail-proof) planter to help you take start to grow and care for your plants. Plus the kit comes with some plants to get you started on your newest project: greening up your life! These plants thrive in your home, office, or anywhere you want cleaner air. Green is good for your health and happiness, so treat yourself this Valentine’s Day!

No matter how you celebrate Valentine’s Day, remember that love isn’t dead, as long as you tend to your relationships with care, affection and attention. Pick the plants that will last longer than a week and enjoy the day!
