Believe it or not – it is roughly four weeks to Christmas (for those celebrating) and we have to admit we like the festive season! A mug of mulled wine, spicy ginger bread, and friends and family gathering. And if you have plant loving people among your family and friends, it is such a pleasure to hunt for green gifts. Just to be clear:  Don’t forget to spoil yourself too, plant friend! After all we all deserve a little green treat every now and then. Like last year we compiled a Green Gift Guide for you that is totally Urban Jungle Bloggers approved! Cool new plant pots, a stylish watering can, botanical bedlinen or even ‘planty’ chocolate – we have a few ideas if you are on the hunt for some green presents.

Of course we just had to include the Urban Jungle Book  in the gift guide too – after all we believe it is a fantastic addition to any plant loving home. And it’s available in ten languages now (English, German, French, Dutch, Czech, Swedish, Norwegian, Russian, Korean and Chinese), There is no excuse to not start your green gift hunt! Here is a fantastic list of 20 green gifts for plant lovers at your service!

Cool Plant Pots

Urban Jungle Bloggers - Cool Plant Pots #urbanjunglebloggers

We love plants and styling with plants. One key factor in plant styling is the choice of a plant pot. It is essential to think of the plant-pot combination from a practical as well as visual point of view. The practical side thinks of factors such as material and drainage hole and the need of the plant. The visual point is more about the harmony of plant and pot. Which plant pot accentuates the beauty of a plant, which design matches your interior style, what kind of styling vignette do you want to create? We know there is a sheer boundless number of plant pots available. To help you make a good choice, we have shortlisted some of our favorite plant pots.

Whether you love terracotta, or prefer something more boho, creative, or quirky, we gathered some of the coolest plant pots on the market, that make excellent containers for your green friends. Tell us, which one is on your wishlist?
