There's no better way to show your love will last.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like a dozen long-stemmed roses. OK, and maybe a box of chocolates. While flowers are a traditional way of showing your love, their beauty is fleeting. If you’re lucky, a bouquet of flowers might stay fresh for a week.
Sure, you could get creative and craft a pickle bouquet or order a Reese’s bouquet. But what if you could gift a living thing that was as hardy as it was pretty? Look no further, because we just learned about succulent heart planters, and we’re in love!
Show ‘Em Your Love Will Last
These wooden heart-shaped planters come filled with multi-colored beauties and are 11″ in circumference, which makes them statement pieces. The hues range from blush pinks to mint greens to fiery oranges and everything in between. Could ordinary flowers do that?
Symbolically, succulents equal more staying power than delicate roses. They also add pops of color and greenery to a space without all of the hard work of maintaining them. In fact, succulents like this are so popular in part because they’re easy to care for. The decorative desert flora have become so popular that they’ve shown up as Christmas trees and have even inspired this adorable recipe for Dirt Pudding Cups.
Where Can I Get These?
QueenofSucculents on Etsy is well, kind of the Queen of Succulents. Her arrangements aren’t exactly cheap—they’ll set you back $200—but that’s not outrageous for a living work of art. There are also lower-cost alternatives, as well as smaller versions that come in concrete planters. You can also find succulents that grow into heart shapes naturally.
Great Valentine’s minds think alike, so be forewarned that many options on Etsy indicate that stock is running low. If you have your heart set on a unique gift for February 14, you’ll have to act fast!
