If you're looking for an easy, last-minute DIY gift, I'd highly recommend terrariums. They're aesthetically pleasing, affordable, and... who doesn't love plants? To make one, all you'll need is:
- Succulents and cacti. I found mine at Home Depot for $3-$4 each.
- A cute glass container. I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $10 each.
- Potting soil. You can find this at your local gardening supply store for $5-$10.
Remove the succulents and cacti from their respective containers, and simply re-pot them in your terrarium. If you're having trouble getting the soil to lay flat, add a few drops of water, and press down using a plastic spoon.
