From Cave-Like Planters to Techy Plants for Dad

 - Jun 11, 2013
Many think flowers are for mothers, but why not pick up some sleek plants for dad this Father’s day? Pots and vases are refreshing desk toppers, whether for the office or for home. If your father loves nature, gardening or anything of the sort, he might prefer an organic gift.

Most of these are minimalist in design; a safe choice if you aren’t sure what dad would like. Steel, concrete and ceramic are good materials to choose from if you are looking for something simple and sleek in texture and in appearance. If you are looking for a more rustic and rugged look, wood or clay in earthy tones would work. There are also techy options, like the Electrolux Pot Moot, which has a touchscreen interface to monitor the plant’s growth.
