I have friends who always seem to have everything they want, or can buy what they want. So buying gifts for their birthdays or for Christmas can be sooo difficult. Gift cards seem impersonal. Taking them out to dinner doesn’t seem special enough since we do it all the time. So what would be the perfect gift?
I thought maybe this.
I love terrariums. There’s something about the simplicity of air plants and mosses inside a glass globe that’s so pretty. I especially love the ones in the tear drop shaped glass. Usually, I just buy the terrariums already styled and give them out as gifts.
But this time, I thought maybe I could style them myself and give it a little personal touch. So I bought a kit from Air Plant Design Studios and decided on a seaside version of a terrarium. It’s the perfect gift for birthdays, Mother’s Day, or other special occasions. And it doesn’t take long to put together at all.
Now, if only I can keep these plants thriving until they’re ready to be given away…
