Every home could use a nice houseplant, and terrariums are a twist on the classic pot plant gift. The glass jar plant is small enough to be placed in his house, office, bathroom or desk; purchase one that is already made, or add a personal touch by customising and designing your own for him. This is one of the best gift ideas because terrariums don’t require much maintenance, and everyone living in the city could use a little bit of nature and greenery in their day-to-day lives.
