Nothing against decorative hand soaps and mini candles, but sometimes hostess gifts and stocking stuffers can lack imagination. With legal cannabis a reality in California (as well as in many other states), why not bring some high holiday cheer with fun, cannabis-themed small gifts for the pot smokers in your life?
All the items below are fun and affordable treats that any cannabis user would enjoy. Pick one for a small gift or build an exciting gift bag out of several – they’re all available for $25 or less.
Grinders and Grinder Cards: Every marijuana user needs a good grinder and it’s nice to have more than one. A nice metal grinder will set you back $50 or more, but you can choose from a selection of fun, eclectic grinder cards for only $10-12. Grinder cards work like little cheese graters for your buds, perfect for portable, small grind jobs. These Jimi Hendrix cards are perfect for musicians and classic rock lovers.
Stash Bag: Speaking of portability, people who use cannabis regularly need a classy way to carry it around. These padded bags by Dime Bags are a great option. This 10” bag is spacious enough to carry a glass piece or portable vaporizer as well as cannabis, lighter, grinder, etc… Great features include: partial hemp construction, a nice cotton lining and 14 colors to choose from. Just $16!
Containers: Containers come in handy for many reasons: Not all dispensaries offer quality packaging for their products and not all cannabis is bought from a dispensary. These colorful stash cubes are made from silicone and are safe for the freezer and dishwasher. The assorted colors make it easy to store different strains and the tops are interchangeable. Set of 5 for $20.
Cannabis Art: Keep it classy and skip the blacklight posters. Instead, opt for a stunning photographic print of cannabis inspired art starting at just $25. This whimsical sloth by Max Rosenbaum is available in three sizes, as is this fascinating print of Salvador Dali by Riandy Karuniawan.
Books: Many states allow home cultivation. Despite “weed” living up to its name with its ability to grow in less than ideal conditions, many people are intimidated by their first foray into growing cannabis. Give the gift of gardening knowledge with a book on cultivation ($22), or add a couple of GeoPots ($11), organic soil and a cutting to create a gardening starter set. Or, if your friend is more of the baking type, this fun cookbook, Mary Jane’s Hash Brownies, Hot Pot, and Other Marijuana Munchies, instructs on how to make all types of cannabis munchies, $23. Even the most experienced pot smokers will love this Official High Times Field Guide to Marijuana Strains for $17.
If you have access, be sure to stop by your local dispensaries and check out their holiday specials to add a little extra “happy” to your holiday gifts.
