Best botanical themed items for 2022
Botanical Soaps Book
This hardback book would make a fantastic gift for a creative, experimental friend who doesn't mind rolling up their sleeves! Botanical Soaps: A modern guide to making your own soaps, shampoo bars and other beauty essentials, allows you to make greener choices when it comes to beauty products by explaining how you can make your own botanical soaps. This is a great way to reduce your plastic consumption, and it's also a fun way to choose your own scents and natural ingredients. You can learn how to make deodorants, lip butters and cleansers, which of course make thoughtful and lovely presents, ideal for the festive period!

Small Glass Watering Can
A delicate delight, this glass watering can features a cute flower in the centre making it a unique pick. Due to its small size (it's only 13.5cm in height) and fragile nature, this watering can would be well-suited to indoor use, making it a top choice for houseplant care. We love the bold, dark green rim which really adds to the beauty of this desirable item.
For a sturdier choice, here's our list of the best watering cans.
Botanical Wall Calendar
Calendars are a great way to fill your walls with attractive artwork and we're huge fans of these retro Botanical, plant illustrations. This calendar includes the last four months of 2021, which is a handy feature if you need to go back in time and check something! You could keep it in your shed, or it would look lovely pinned up on a wall of the house for visitors to enjoy. It would make an ideal Christmas present for friends with busy schedules. Each month displays a particular fruit plant, so you can admire the lemons, peaches and apples as you work your way through the year.
Seedlip Garden Non-Alcoholic Spirit
Enjoy a gin and tonic without the headache! This non-alcoholic spirit from Seedlip is made with peas, hay, hops, spearmint, rosemary and thyme, so it's hard to resist. It's a super thing to have in your drinks cabinet if you're hosting non-drinking guests. You could opt for a straightforward G&T style beverage, or you could go all out and put together a delicious cocktail!
Aery Botanical Scented Candles
Lighting a scented candle after a long day in the garden is a lovely way to relax. This set of three botanical scented candles includes black oak, green bamboo and herbal tea, so you can choose your preference. They'd work well as a bathroom feature, and they'd also make a great Secret Santa gift if you're struggling for ideas!
Dagny Monogram Mug
If you're after a new favourite mug to add to your collection, this personalised option from Anthropologie is a sweet option. Featuring a pretty flower design and a letter of your choice, these hand painted stoneware mugs would look great displayed in a glass cabinet. You could get one for all of the family! They're dishwasher safe too which is always a bonus.
Flora Fantasia Large Cotton-Linen Cushion
A truly fantastic addition to your sofa or bed, this large botanical cushion from House of Hackney is a magical choice. The tassels add a touch of glamour and luxury, and the intricate floral design oozes finesse. If you're looking for a final touch to complete a room in your home, this botanical themed item is a fabulous option.
Botanical Fern Planter
We love the vibrant colours of this striking botanical themed item. This pot is suitable for indoor use only, so you could place it on your windowsill, or perhaps there's an empty corner of a room in your home calling out for a luscious plant. Ideal for fern lovers, this ceramic pot is sure to add a funky, tropical touch to any space!
Botanical Wall Art Prints
If you've got a blank wall that's in need of some love, these botanical themed prints are a wonderful choice. The clean, fresh look helps to create a peaceful vibe and they'd look fantastic in a bright, well lit space. The prints are unframed, so you can have fun deciding what kind of frame to go for, and you get six in the set.
Crazy Plant Lady Puzzle
This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle is bound to keep the plant obsessed entertained on a rainy day! We adore the bright colours and fun design, and there's even a helpful poster so you know exactly what your masterpiece should look like. So if you've watered all of your plants, and you're looking for something to keep you busy, this is sure to do the trick.
Nina Woven Robe
Add a splash of colour to your bedtime routine! The playful plant prints and interesting colours make this robe from White Stuff an exciting purchase. The long design makes it a top choice for chilly winter mornings, and it's machine washable so you can easily keep it soft and fresh.
Save on packaging this year with an eco-friendly advent calendar.
