The Succulent Addict’s Gift Guide

Find the perfect gift for the succulent addict in your life. This gift guide will help you keep the addiction going without adding more plants (or too many more…) to their collection.

This page contains affiliate links, but I love all the products I link to!

I love giving gifts, but it’s hard to find just the right thing. Over the last few years I’ve discovered some really awesome products related to succulents and I’m sure the succulent lover in your life will be excited about them too.

The gifts range from tools, to unique arrangements, jewelry and books. There’s sure to be something here that fits your budget that your succulent addict will love.

There are some really unique succulent gift ideas in this post! I know what to put on my list now!

DIY Succulent Box

I love my box of succulents from Lula’s garden. It’s such a great way to display succulents indoors and to send a gift to a far away friend.

They have some really beautiful varieties of succulents and several cover sleeves to choose from so you can say just the right thing.

Be sure to check out their special edition Valentine’s Day boxes!

I love that this succulent garden comes completely ready to use and includes stuff to take care of it!

They also have this DIY box that not only gives your recipient a beautiful arrangement, but a fun project to work on as well.

A DIY succulent box would make such a fun gift!

Wine Bottle Planter

Succulents are sure to stand out in one of these gorgeous wine bottle planters. Choose from a table top or hanging design and fill with succulents! You can also purchase pre-made arrangements in either style.

Metal Address Planter

This one is on my wish list this year. Looking Sharp Cactus has really paid attention to detail with these metal address planters. You can customize the numbers with as many or as few as you need. Plus, the attach with magnets so if you move you can still use your planter and just order new numbers.

The planter box also attaches with magnets so you can place it wherever you’d like on the sign!

Succulent Variety Pack

This selection of succulents from Leaf and Clay is perfect for the season of love. The light pinks, purples and blues in this collection is stunning!

Top Dressings and Tools

If you’re looking something that doesn’t add more plants to your addict’s collection, I highly recommend getting a bag of top dressing from Bonsai Jack. This light pastel mix is my favorite, but there are four options to choose from.

I also highly recommend this mini garden tool set. For just $7 you get a simple way to water small pots, a brush to gently remove unsightly dirt from your succulents, tweezers to remove dead leaves, a scoop that is perfect for adding top dressing or soil in hard to reach places, and a few other little tools that you can be creative with.

This mini garden tool kit is the perfect set for maintaining an indoor succulent garden!

If you’re looking to splurge a bit, you can’t go wrong with these amazing scissors from Bonsai Jack. They are so sharp and easy to use. They are prefect for taking cuttings from succulents to encourage new growth.

Succulent Jewelry

If you want to steer clear of real succulents completely, or maybe want to stick with a more traditional Valentine’s Day gift, be sure to look at the collection of succulent jewelry from Eten Iren. They are so realistic!

This succulent necklace looks so real! I can't believe it's clay!


There are a lot of great resources for learning more about succulents! If books are something your succulent addict enjoys, I highly recommend Idiots Guides: Succulents by yours truly… as well as DIY Succulents by Tawni Daigle of the blog Needles and Leaves.

With the first you’ll get an over all guide to growing succulents and the second is full of exciting projects you can create with succulents. You can also get my ebooks if you’re looking for something digital.

Two great books for learning more about succulents!

Manure Tea Fertilizer

In my post about how to fertilize succulents I talk all about the benefits of using fertilizer with succulents. This Manure Tea from Haven Brand is fantastic! It does so much to nourish the plant but it’s so safe you can use it every time you water. Check out my post about fertilizing or click here to buy it. (Note: it is only available in the United States)

This manure tea is the best fertilizer I've found for succulents and other plants!


Equally fun to getting new plants is getting new pots for them! One of my all time favorite ceramic artists is Susan Aach. Her work is beautiful and so unique! I got this green pot just a few weeks ago and I love it. It’s currently my favorite pot. You can also check out more fun pottery on my Etsy wishlist.

Hopefully this has provided you with some new ideas of things to get for yourself or the succulent addict in your life! If you are the addict… subtly (or not so subtly) share this list with those who may be shopping for gifts for you soon.

  1. Hi Cassidy,

    Thanksgiving will be in San Diego for us. I want to visit some nurseries near or in San Diego but want to make good use of time. I like hard to find and unusual/weird succulents (for the Midwest anyway). I need to be particular since I can’t spend overboard. For packing, I buy 3″ specimens or 5-6″ plants which are AWESOME. With your experience and knowledge of the San Diego area, which would you highly recommend given my parameters. Please offer several to choose. This way you won’t feel like you are selling the places. A few months ago, I spent a day at SucculentGardens in Castroville, CA
    ut transferred about 100 soft succulents and cacti in trays to winterize in my laundry room. Your recent info on lights was so helpful. I need to peruse the newsletter to see what will fit in this small space and what won’t break the bank.

    Yes, addiction has set in…just sayin’. Your experienced guidance is appreciated Cassidy. Thank you!

    • Honestly, I’ve only purchased succulents from two places in San Diego: Waterwise Botanicals and Oasis Water Efficient Gardens. I would recommend Oasis since you are looking for smaller plants. Waterwise is geared a little more toward landscaping, although they do have a shade tent with smaller plants. Oasis has a large selection with a lot of varieties. I spend a couple hundred the last time I went there :) It’s a really fun place!

  2. Hmmmmm…could be I’m not reading this carefully enough, but if so, I’m probably not the only one. I can’t (EASILY) find enough information to know :
    >Is this for sure, free or is the free reference to some of your other excellent printed material.
    >It looks as if I must print this off, but I’ll like to know how many pages I’m obligating myself, my printer and my ink to, before I begin.
    >Assuming I’m printing my own, is there any advantage to printing in color?
    >If there is a charge, do you accept paypal?
    >Is it available in printed form?
    Sorry if I’m being a pain somewhere, but, as with all busy people, I have things to do besides solve the mysteries of information that seems to be unavailable.
    Thanks so much….Honor

    • I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking about. The gift guide is just this post. The books linked to are both printed books available for sale on I also have 2 ebooks available for sale. They are both PDFs that can be viewed on the computer or on a mobile device. If you were to print those, they are between 33 and 42 pages.

      I hope that answers your question!

      • I love your site so much. All the magnificent things you surprise my mind with that you can do with succulents makes me smile. I know I would love your books so much. However I am a tangible learner I need to touch. Your e-books I want so badly but I want them for my library so I can go to reference them. I so would like to buy the physical books……please tell me how and or where……I love succulents like you do..

        • Thank you for your kind words! I don’t have the ebooks in print, however, I do have a published book which can be purchased on Amazon or at most Barnes and Noble stores. Hopefully that will work for you!

Wondering who I am?

Let me introduce myself... My name is Cassidy Tuttle and I’m a professional photographer turned succulent addict. These are my two sweet children and wonderful husband in the photo with me!

My adventure with succulents started with three small plants on the window sill of my basement apartment. Within a year I had propagated them and purchased more, totaling over 100 plants!

It’s been a fun adventure since then as I’ve drowned, burned, frozen, and starved my collection of succulents. This site is where I teach you how to avoid all those mistakes I made or help you recover from them.

While I’ve killed plenty of succulents in the last few years, I’ve also kept hundreds alive and thriving, and I know you can do the same!

Did I mention I wrote the book on succulents?

It’s true! I’m the author of Idiot’s Guides: Succulents which is designed to help those of us who love succulents (but are limited to growing on our window sills and porches) keep our succulents looking great.

You can purchase my book through my Amazon affiliate link here or pick it up at your local Barnes and Noble.

If printed books aren’t your thing, I’ve also written several ebooks about succulents on various topics including indoor growing, watering and propagating. You can check those out on this page.

My goal is to help you not just keep your succulents alive, but help them thrive no matter where you live.

Whew! That’s a lot of stuff!

I’m impressed you’ve made it this far down. You should probably be rewarded for that…

How about some bite sized succulent tips delivered daily to your inbox?

I’m sure you’ll love my 30 Days of Quick Succulent Tips email series. Each day I’ll send you a 2-3 sentence tip about growing succulents along with a photo and link to learn more.
