$25 and under gift No. 3: tiny terrariums

We were taken with these capsules of mossy green from our first squint to peer inside. From afar, Twig Terrariums are… cute—your garden variety mini ecosystem in a jar. But get up-close, and you see the detail worth straining your eyes for: the hand-crafted fisherman by the aqua-pebble stream, or the half-inch high couple tending to their mossy front yard. These tiny scenes (and many others) are the work of two Brooklyn gals, and we found the terrariums at one of our favorite spots from last year’s holiday gift list, Cog & Pearl (190 Fifth Ave. at Sackett St.) in Park Slope. The store’s got them in all shapes and sizes, but perfect for our list are the terrariums-in-light-bulbs ($20 and $25) and the $25 DIY-in-a-jar version (for the more dexterous).
