This DIY green gift idea is perfect for giving any day of the year. Aquaterriums combine plants, earth and water to create fun little worlds using recycled glass bottles and jars.

Houseplant cuttings are placed in sand, sea glass or tumbled stones and found objects like sea shells or driftwood can be added to your underwater scene. Try putting a secret message in a bottle or placing a stone inscribed with a power word inside an Aquaterrium. In addition to being good for the environment, this green gift idea will help clean the air for your interior environment as well and will even thrive on your office desk in a low light situation.

Instead of giving a bouquet of flowers this Valentines Day, try giving a unique gift with a special message that will last and last. Stats for Eco-Friendly Aquarium Gifts Trending: Older & Warm
