Okay, if you're looking for a really cool groomsman gift, why not give him something that he doesn't have to feed, can't kill, and can use at home, in the office, or in his garage if he really wants to. I'm talking about a houseplant, a fake one of course. There are some really impressive fake houseplants out there these days. The best thing about them is that they don't require any sunlight to thrive. So, if your groomsman wants to put the plant in a corner somewhere away from any windows, he can! A funny thing would be to get a plant that looks real, but isn't. Make sure to add a lot of detailed instructions on how to care for the plant. For added effect, put a handful of potting soil in the container! Unless your groomsmen have a PhD in agriculture, it might be quite easy to fool them. Sure they'll figure it out eventually, but why not make really creative groomsmen gifts by adding the following “plant care” instructions:
1) This plant requires at least one hour of cold temperatures every day. Place in a plastic bag and leave in the freezer for only one hour each day.
2) Fertilize regularly. Coffee grounds work best.
3) Keep the leaves free of dust by carefully wiping each leaf with a damp cloth. This should be done two or three times a day.
4) Once every two days, take the plant completely out of the pot, change the soil, reposition the plant, and pack down neatly.
5) Water as required.
Let's face it, your groomsmen probably aren't going to go through all of those steps, but if they do, they'll soon figure out the joke. Just to see the initial look on their faces is worth a laugh!
