Now that all of the turkey has been consumed and the Thanksgiving marijuana has been consumed, I’m sure many TWB readers are looking ahead to Christmas. Everyone knows (or is) a marijuana consumer that is reading this post and chances are you are looking for good marijuana themed Christmas gift ideas for people that are like minded. Here is a list of marijuana themed things that I will be giving out this holiday season…If you are on my holiday list and you want to be surprised, you should probably stop reading:
Treats made with cannabis butter are always a solid idea. Who doesn’t like a dank marijuana brownie or cookie on Christmas? I know a lot of people that just prefer the marijuana butter so they can get inventive themselves. Also, if they get a chunk of marijuana butter and want to make the treats themselves later, they will get the ‘fresh out of the oven experience.’ Either way, it’s a great idea for the holidays.
Marijuana vaporizers are always a hot item. Obviously if you are flush with cash you want to get a Volcano, but even if not, prices for quality alternatives are very reasonable these days.
Marijuana movies are always an excellent idea. Click the link for my personal top ten, and many, many more suggestions in the comments section.
Membership in a Norml, Americans for Safe Access, Marijuana Policy Project, or a local organization such as Oregon Green Free is a GREAT idea for any marijuana consumer. It gives the recipient something to do all year long and helps a worthwhile cause; it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
Blunt wraps and rolling papers are a great idea for the old school smoker. I know that I personally love getting zig zags and royals in my stocking…
Marijuana pipes, bongs, and bubblers are obvious ideas. We all have that friend that is smoking off the same metal piece of crap that they’ve had for years on end. Perhaps it’s time to go to the local head shop and drop a few bucks on a new marijuana piece. Another gift that can be purchased together with the marijuana piece, or to accompany a marijuana piece that the receiver already has, is a marijuana bong/pipe/bubbler pouch or container. Every quality marijuana smoking device needs a good home, so find one that is protective while also resembling the taste of the gift receiver.
Hemp clothing is a great gift idea. If I had to guess, out of the thousands of tokers I know, maybe 5% of them actually own a quality hemp item such as a shirt, pants, backpack etc. I know a lot of people with hemp jewelry (another gift idea), but giving them the gift of an actual clothing item can not only make them happy, it can increase awareness about how much superior hemp is than most common fabrics that people purchase at chain stores.
A very nice gift idea is a container for marijuana. This can be something that you customize from around the house, something you buy at a smoke shop, or if you are really looking to knock their socks off, check out the bud vac jar. I’ve never seen anything that keeps marijuana fresher for longer, period. Plus the people that run the company are some of the nicest people I have ever met.
One of the cheapest and most useful marijuana gift ideas is wooden kabob sticks. I know what some readers are thinking, “WTF is he talking about.” Anyone that owns a marijuana bong, pipe, bubbler, waterfall or gravity bong needs a poker on a regular basis. Chances are, you have rigged some other device (such as a clothes hanger) for this purpose, and it is caked with resin. If not, then you probably don’t have anything at all. You spend valuable lung space and time trying to ‘suck it through’ when you are consuming marijuana with friends, or are toking at a friend’s house using their clogged piece. With wooden kabob sticks (less than $2 at my local walmart), you get dozens if not over 100 pokers. You can use them until they are fully resined and then discard them and use another. It’s one of the biggest stoner revolutions that I ever witnessed when my first roommate showed me what was up.
Almost every marijuana consumer that I know can never have enough lighters. Bics only please; crack torches are not preferred.
If your friend or family member is a marijuana grower, than marijuana grow supplies are always a GREAT idea. I know I personally would like a high end PH/Nutrient/Temp hydroponic tester, or a new CO2 regulator, or better yet, just go with the gift certificate to the local grow store. It will get used guaranteed!
Stoner Fluxx is one of the funnest marijuana games that I have ever played. It is a marijuana card game that I haven’t seen too many places on the shelf, but it is extremely easy to find online. Maybe there are other marijuana card games or board games that are stoner friendly too…if so, drop me an e-mail so I can check them out!
Joint rollers and grinders are a good idea for that friend that either loves doobies, or is really bad at rolling them. You know this type of friend; the one that doesn’t break up the herb enough and on top of it rolls super pregnant joints. You can help them out on the down low by giving them the grinder and roller tandem pack.
A scale is always a fun and useful gift for any marijuana consumer. Whether your friend just wants to make sure he/she is not getting ripped off, or wants to make sure they are under their medical marijuana limit, or they just want to break down some marijuana for whatever reason, a scale is the perfect gift. Most people will purchase a digital scale of course, considering prices have plummeted so much in the last ten years. However, I always thought it would be cool to have an old school triple beam as a decoration and conversation piece for my pad (hint hint).
Marijuana books and magazines are a great thing to purchase for any marijuana fan. Whether it’s a subscription to High Times, or a book by Ed Rosenthal, or any other written publication, it’s a solid idea especially for joint rollers. I have my ‘special’ marijuana book (the closet cultivator) that I always roll my joints on. I love to read it, and roll with it – a two for one gift!
If your friend or family member doesn’t have a marijuana kief box, they are pretty cool. Although, it takes quite a bit of duff/shake to get your kief on, so make sure that your friend/fam has enough around to use it regularly. I have seen many people get marijuana kief boxes for Christmas, just to realize that they never have enough scrapes around to use it. However, with more and more people growing marijuana these days, and the availability on the rise, these are becoming more and more popular. Get a good one that is hand held sized — a kief box that takes two hands to shake is pretty lame in my opinion. I like a good medium sized one personally.
If you’re looking for a cheap item, burn a CD with your friend/fam’s favorite songs to smoke to. This of course can be songs directly related to marijuana, or just songs that remind the receiver of times they were sm0king marijuana. If the person is new to marijuana, make them a CD of songs that you like to increase their exposure to the marijuana culture.
Stuff to clean bongs, pipes, and bubblers are always useful. You can get cleaner from any local head shop, but the link I included in this paragraph shows a really easy method that only takes salt and rubbing alcohol. You can probably stock your buddy up for a whole year at rock bottom prices!
And of course the most obvious gift – MARIJUANA NUGS! All of the gifts that I have mentioned previously are not nearly as awesome without marijuana. Get creative and put a nug inside something cool. Or if you’re giving a gift to someone like me, then just give them a good old sandwich bag full of lush stinky chronic. I guarantee you won’t hear any complaints about the gift wrap!
