When it comes to holiday gifting there are some classic go-to options. Wine, a nice bottle of whiskey, fruits cut into little shapes and arranged on skewers. But what if your recipient is more interested in a different type of consumable? That’s where our guide to the best cannabis gifts comes in.
For recipients over 21, there are adult-use THC products a plenty to stuff stockings, and that’s just the beginning. Non-psychoactive CBD is officially in everything now, too, including some really lovely gift-worthy luxuries. Take a peek at some of our favorite picks and ensure this holiday will be your most chill ever.
Tabletop Lighter by Edie Parker Flower
Truly any item from Edie Parker Flower’s ridiculously cute and fun cannabis accessories line is gift-giving gold, but since the holidays are a time to go all-out, we’ve picked this vintage-inspired tabletop lighter. The lighter stacks atop a detachable ashtray for extra cleverness. Does anyone need it? Probably not. Does it seem wildly glamorous anyway? Obviously.
Black Dahlia Collection CBD Candles
Infuse the atmosphere around your loved one with inviting fragrance and calming CBD. Each of the Black Dahlia Collection candles is infused with 150mg of CBD plus 50mg of CBG. Select from sandalwood, hinoki, and willow scents.
Single Smoke Case
This little item is one of those things one rarely buys for themselves, but as soon as you get one, you use it all the time–aka perfect “stocking stuffer” material. The air-tight metal tube stores one to three pre-rolled joints so you have a discrete, scent-free, and fresh way to store supplies.
The Beboe Bestie Kit
Beboe, the Lake Bell-backed cannabis brand known for its stylish packaging, offers this cute gift set for the holidays which they suggest as a perfect stocking stuffer or starter kit for a user new to cannabis. The box includes a box of their signature “inspired sativa” cannabis pastilles candies and a rose gold mini-vape pen.
The Gilded Grinder
Everything from female-founded Sackville & Co. gives off strong “cool girl” vibes, but this crazy-chic-art-piece-that’s-actually-a weed-grinder might be our top pick of the season. The blades can also handle kitchen herbs or other things you might need finely ground, plus it just looks so great.
Highly Beautified CBD Facial Oil
First of all, that gold packaging. But what’s inside is pretty great, too. This made-in-California facial oil is packed with a cocktail of beautifying, hydrating ingredients, including a potent dose of CBD.
Gossamer Volume One
Fancy up their coffee table with this stylish mag. Articles in this volume include the definitive guide to CBD, tips for exploring Sedona, art, essays, and lots of wonderful stuff they’ll read cover-to-cover.
Hora Gift Set
If there were two undeniable trends in skincare for 2018, they were quartz facial rollers and CBD in everything. Hora taps into both with this lovely gift set, including the brand’s decadent (and multi-use!) Super Serum, an overnight mask, and a cooling quartz roller.
Home for the Holidays Flight Stash Book
From the outside, this kit might look like an innocent paperback, but open up the vintage-style cover and find five one-gram pre-rolls from California’s Lowell Herb Co. Your recipient will get to sample five different strains, each wrapped in festive, holiday-themed packaging.
Sugarplum High-CBD Gummies
If Santa Claus were from L.A., he would ask for these gluten-free, all-natural, CBD-rich gummies instead of cookies. This holiday season sweet incorporates juicy plum and a bit of spicy ginger, along with 20mg of CBD per candy.
Papa & Barkley Releaf Soak
Treat anyone who’s seen a stressful year to a little at-home spa situation via these Pap & Barkley bath soak packs. The crystals are packed with CBD and THC to sooth aches and pains, plus sea salt, coconut oil, and lavender, and other natural ingredients.
Verte Luxe Soak
The self-care queen will be delighted with this luxurious bath soak from Verte Essentials. Available on it’s own or along with other CBD-infused products from the line, the soak encourages relaxation and well-being–and smells so pretty, too.
KEEP Cannabis Storage
Sure, it looks like a sleek bedside clock, which is fine–but KEEP is actually much more. The device is actually an innovate, high-tech cannabis storage solution. It locks with biometrics and can be monitored remotely by mobile app, making it ideal for anyone worried their kids–or annoying roommate–might try to steal their stash.
Artet Cannabis Aperitif
It seems like many people we know are drinking a bit less alcohol these days, but the ritual of an elegant aperitif never goes out of style. Artet is an Italian-inspired beverage for anybody who has gone “Cali sober,” but still wants a glass of something to sip on. Each dose of the liquid contains a 2.3mg dose of THC, along with a sophisticated botanical blend.
OLO Strips Quartet
We would slip these strips to anyone who’s interested in trying cannabis, but knows they’re not into smoking. OLO’s high-tech sublingual strips dissolve delicately under the tongue, so you get precise dosing without any hassle–or hacking up a lung. The “quartet” kit offers a sampling of all the brand’s formulations.
Lindsey Hampton Ring Pipe
Every Angeleno worth their salt has a collection of artisan ceramics these days, no? We suggest you add to the array with this functional item, handmade by artist Lindsey Hampton and sold by sophisticated smoking lifestyle boutique Tetra.
Prismatic Plants Good Day Blend
This daily dose of CBD and adaptogens is perfect for anyone interested in incorporating a new self-care ritual into their mornings. Want to be extra caring? Opt for a duo pack that pairs Prismatic Plants’ Good Day and Good Night offerings.
Maybe your recipient already knows their taste in cannabis, or maybe you’re just looking for a discrete stocking stuffer. Either way, yes, you can give a cannabis gift card. Available at the brick-and-mortar locations of cannabis retail chain MedMen (self-described as “the Apple store of weed”) they’re the perfect way to keep everyone on your gift list happy.
