For every person who’s a great gift-giver, there are several more who struggle to accomplish their holiday shopping. Finding the right present to bring a smile to someone’s face is no easy task, and it can quickly make Christmas shopping a far more stressful experience than it needs to be.
Buying gifts for a stoner is no exception. Instead of wrapping up a pack of papers or a cheap gas station pipe, here are a few great gift ideas for the stoner in your life.
A new vape kit
While some stoners will always prefer a more traditional bong or pipe setup, there are plenty of other smokers who enjoy the convenience and discretion of vaping. Vape kits are typically portable, refillable, and quick to charge, which makes them a hit. So what better way to say “Merry Christmas” than by picking out the perfect new vape kit and a couple of accessories?
One popular vape is called the Sourin Vagon. These ultra-portable, fit-in-your-pocket rigs are excellent for the stoner on the go. They come in a wide variety of different colors and the pods are refillable, so you’re not spending tons of money on disposable cartridges. Plus, if your stoner pal enjoys traditional vaping as well, there are always deals on e-juices and vape liquids to complete the kit. Each starter kit comes with the system, a refillable pod, a charger, and a user manual so you may want to think about purchasing spare pods or an additional charger to go along with it.
A handcrafted bong
If you’re trying to buy a gift for a stoner whose motto is “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”, then stick with the classics: a unique, handcrafted bong. There are a few shops that specialize in glass blowing and will work with you to create a custom piece that perfectly suits your stoner’s style, taste, and personality. There are even a few artisans floating around craft sites like Etsy who take commissions for new bongs and rigs, allowing you to customize the color and structure. Some designers craft quirky bongs that are shaped like animals, plants, and mythological creatures if you want to invest in a true statement piece.
However, regardless of where you purchase the bong, make sure you look at the designer’s portfolio first to ensure that you like their style. It’s also a good idea to ask for sketches of the piece before it goes into production, so you’re not spending money on a product that you aren’t happy with and the designer’s not wasting time and materials on adjustments. Read up on their customer reviews as well, so you have a sense of how previous clients felt about their work.
Odds and ends
Want to get your loved one something that’s a bit more out-of-the-box? There are plenty of tchotchkes and trinkets that are a brilliant addition to any stoner’s collection. For example, if you’re buying gifts for a stoner who’s also a food connoisseur, what better gift could there be than the Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook? This collection of over 50 cannabis-infused dishes is a great way to learn about cooking with the plant to create mouthwatering appetizers, entrees, desserts, and even cocktails.
Another great read for any stoner is The Cannabis Spa at Home. This book is dedicated to incorporating cannabis into lotions, ointments, oils, and much more. It’s a great way to try out a new hobby and it also promotes relaxation, which is always a big plus during the holiday season. Pick up the starter materials for one of the ointments in the book or make it a group project and each spend time together crafting the perfect cannabis lotion.
From the heart
You know the old saying that it’s the thought that counts? While finding the perfect gift may be your ultimate mission, just know that whatever you select is sure to be a hit with the stoner in your life. It doesn’t have to be the fanciest, most expensive product on the market to leave a lasting impression. Simply make sure you give your gift with lots of love. It’s the perfect way to brighten up their Christmas and yours.
