Looking for unique gifts for loved ones can be tricky and a bit overwhelming, but what better way to start the holiday cheer of gift-giving than shopping locally? The Plant Project Houston, located in Montrose, takes shopping from small business owners to the next level, launching “Home for the Holidays.” The themed boutique-style shopping experience presents fresh goods and unique gifts from Houston farmers, artisans, and professional gardeners.

The Plant Project shop will feature everything from garlands, plants and fresh wreaths to artisan gifts and goods. Plus, a Mini Christmas Tree Farm that will offer a variety of locally sourced 4-6 foot fresh Christmas trees and will stay open through Christmas Eve. 

According to The Plant Project, there’s no better way to spruce up your holiday decor than with fresh pine and fir garlands to fill your home with the natural beauty and aroma of the holiday season and of course– giving back to local merchants.

“Our Home for the Holidays theme is (a) really fun way to bring the community together to shop, share, and keep the cheer right here in Houston this holiday season!” Bree Inman Clarke, Founder of The Plant Project said.

Clarke, a Houston native who opened the first black female-owned plant shop in Dallas last year, opened The Plant Project Houston in July 2021 with her husband Carlos. The unique boutique, whose motto is “never stop growing,” is as much of an experiential space for the community as it is a beautifully curated plant shop that brings self-care, diversity and a love of plants together in a welcoming environment.

“Shopping local not only offers a more positive, personal experience for the shopper and the recipient of holiday gifts, it plays such an important role in supporting small business owners and reinvesting in the community we live and work in,” Clarke said.  

The Plant Project shop also offers expert advice on gifts, plant selection and care; nationwide shipping, local pick-up and delivery; and a variety of hands-on and how-to workshops.

The “Home for the Holidays’” themed-boutique will be open throughout the month of December,  Tuesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m, Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and every other Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.   

The Plant Project Shop is located at 2031 Buffalo Terrace in the Montrose area of Houston. For more information visit or @theplantproject on Instagram.
