We love plants (obviously), and for those that have more than one, you know that plant addiction is a real thing.
Once you get one, you want another, and another...so why not pass on this healthy addiction to others, or feed one's addiction, depending on what stage of the Plant Parent Journey they are in.
Plants make great gifts. They give joy, add style to our space, and are actually good for our health.
What do you give someone who loves plants and which is the best plant to gift?
Aloe Gal's Super Easy to Care for Plants are gift giving ready and we've put together our Top 5 Picks to make selecting the best one for someone super easy.
Here are our Top 5 Perfect Plants for Gifting:

The ZZ or Zamioculas Zamiifolia is so well liked because not only can it tolerate missing a watering or two or three, but it also does well in pretty much any light level from low light conditions to indirect bright light.
So whoever you are gifting it to doesn't need to fuss about this plant's needs. They can just "set it and forget it"...and let it be beautiful in its space.

2. The Aloe Vera Plant
Not only is the Aloe Vera Plant a hardy succulent it's medicinal too! Many people that have an Aloe Vera Plant or want one have fond memories of this plant in their home as they were growing up. Surely it was for its medicinal gel known for healing burns, cuts and scrapes but whatever it is, this plant is always great to have on hand.
