Struggling with what to get everyone on your list for Valentine’s Day? You can give this heart-shaped cactus to just about anyone. Seriously. It’s only $38 and The Sill ships nationwide, which means you can get the cutest 4-5 inch cacti to friends and family around the country (with little effort on your part).

There are three pot colors (red, white, and black), meaning there is an option that will work for your friends who prefer a neutral color palette. It’s tiny, but thoughtful. I mean really, can you imagine a better gift? It’s a cactus in the shape of a heart!

This prickly succulent’s official name is the Hoya kerrii (aka the sweetheart plant or lucky heart) and can grow to sprout multiple hearts AND bloom beautiful flowers. They need lots of bright light and only need to be watered twice a month in the winter. Low-maintenance AND adorable.

Visit The Sill and order before February 9 so you’re not forced to give your loved ones the same box of chocolates you gave them last year (and the year before…).
