Gifting a plant

I would like to give a plant as a gift. What is included ?

Each plant offered includes the chosen plant and pot set, as well as simple care instructions to keep the plant happy and healthy.

You can attach a gift message to the recipient from the checkout page.

We do not enclose invoices with packages.

Gift plants are also covered by our 30-day guarantee and Plant Doctor program, which means the recipient can call us at any time for help with plant care. Being a new plant parent can have its ups and downs, but we make sure our plants are simple to care for and easy to love!

Can I send a plant as a gift? How does that work?

We're a little biased, but we think plants make the perfect gift. Start by selecting the delivery location at the bottom right of any Léon & George webpage. That way, you'll see exactly which plants are available. After you pick out a plant, simply fill in the recipient's address for shipping. You can even add a personal note for them at checkout, and we'll include it with their delivery. White-glove deliveries (for large and extra large plants only in Paris and its suburbs) can be scheduled at checkout. In this case, be sure to let the recipient know to be home during the delivery window.

Is the price of the plant indicated when it comes to a gift?

No, we do not enclose an invoice or price indication with our orders. The invoice is sent by email to the address provided for this purpose.

Is a houseplant the ideal gift for any occasion?

Ah, the magic of the perfect gift! If you're wondering whether a houseplant can be the star of the present, let us enlighten you.

A personal touch: A plant is more than just an object; it's a reflection of the care and attention you pay to its future owner. It's a living present that evolves, flourishes and brings a real touch of nature to any space.

Universality: Whether it's for a birthday, a housewarming, or even a gesture of appreciation at work, plants are suitable for a multitude of events and relationships. Who wouldn't like to add a little greenery to their daily routine?

Well-being: Numerous studies show that plants can reduce stress, improve air quality and even boost productivity. So it's a gift that cares not only about aesthetics, but also about the general well-being of its recipient.

Durability: Unlike gifts that eventually become damaged or outdated, a well-cared-for plant is a gift that lasts. It will continue to remind its owner of your thoughtful gesture over time.

Ease of care: The houseplants we select at Léon & George are renowned for their ease of care. So they're perfect even for those who weren't born with the famous "green thumb".

A personalized gift: With a varied range of designer plants and pots, you can choose the style that best suits your recipient's personality. Feel free to add a personal message to your recipient.

So, is this a good gift idea? In a word, absolutely!

Is it better to give a plant as a gift rather than a bouquet of flowers for a special occasion?

Ah, the great question that has divided opinion since time immemorial: plants or flowers, which to choose? So let's take a look at the undeniable advantages of giving a houseplant as a gift.

  1. Durability: Unlike a bouquet of flowers that will wilt in a week or two, a houseplant is a gift that lasts. If properly cared for, it will flourish year after year.
  2. Health benefits: Plants can purify indoor air, providing a healthier environment. They can also reduce stress and improve concentration.
  3. Aesthetically pleasing: A plant can be a decorative addition to any room, adding a touch of greenery and nature to spaces that lack it.
  4. Ecologically more responsible: Giving a plant as a gift makes ecological sense, especially if it's grown sustainably, as is the case with our plants.

Ultimately, a houseplant is more than just a gift; it's a genuine investment in well-being and blossoming. Unlike a bouquet of flowers, a plant continues to grow, as does the affection or friendship it symbolizes.

How to choose the ideal plant for a gift?

Choosing the perfect plant to give as a gift is a bit like finding the rare pearl in an ocean of greenery. But don't worry, you've come to the right place to make the perfect choice. Here are a few criteria to consider when browsing our plant collection:

  1. Recipient's preferences: Do you know your recipient's taste in decoration? Some like lush, green or colorful foliage, while others prefer more discreet plants.
  2. Level of Gardening Expertise: Novice amateurs might appreciate a hardy, easy-to-maintain plant like Sansevieria, while seasoned botanists might be delighted with a tougher challenge like a Ficus Lyrata.
  3. Space conditions: Consider the light, humidity and temperature conditions where the plant will be placed. Some plants are better adapted to specific environments.
  4. Plant size: If space is limited, a small houseplant like Pothos might be more appropriate than a large Ficus.
  5. Maintenance requirements: Some plants need more attention than others. Be sure to choose a plant that matches the recipient's level of commitment and available time.
  6. Symbolic significance: If the occasion is special, why not choose a plant with a particular symbolism? For example, Pachira Aquatica, Zamioculcas (Jewel of Zanzibar), or braided trunks are often associated with good luck and prosperity.

By taking these criteria into account, you'll be better equipped to choose the plant that will make your recipient's heart beat faster. Of course, each plant in our collection comes with a detailed information sheet to help you make your decision.

For more recommendations and advice, please feel free to browse our collections or contact us directly. After all, giving a plant is giving a piece of nature with a lot of love and care!

What accessories are essential to complete my plant gift?

So you're ready to turn a simple gift into a real botanical blossoming set! Great idea. A beautiful plant specimen is already a feast for the senses, but a little something extra can really take it to the next level.

  1. Pots and planters: Choosing the right pot is crucial. Our pots and planters, available in a range of materials and designs, offer a chic yet functional home for your plant.

  3. Special Indoor Plant Fertilizers: A small dose of nutrients can make all the difference. Our specially formulated fertilizers promote healthy growth and vibrant leaves.
  4. Plant Care Pack : For budding gardeners or those always on the go, our plant care product kits are a godsend. They include everything you need to keep your plants in top condition.
