Folks, we've made it: it's the season of giving.
And while some of you may have gotten an early start on assembling the tree, putting up the string lights and blasting holiday music for the entire neighborhood to hear, that doesn’t always mean you’re fully prepared for everything the holiday season brings. In fact, the toughest decisions are still yet to be made: specifically, what gifts will most delight our beloved best buds?
Fear not, friends—much like the big, white bearded one himself, your wish is our command (and we know you’ve been extra good this year), so we took it upon ourselves to do the dirty work for you. Here’s a few of our favorite laid back, cannabis-inspired gift ideas sure to spark joy all year long.
Shop small, win big
This year especially, shopping small and supporting local businesses is one way to ensure your purchase goes towards something greater than just the present itself.
Your flower friends will fawn over a unique, carefully crafted gift created to enhance their moments of happiness, like these beautifully handmade ceramic pipes from Takoma Ceramics and Stonedware. With a variety of fun colors and distinctive styles, choosing only one will be the hardest part. (And of course, these would pair great with a fresh jar of Island flower.)
Light it up
Since solo sessions have replaced our usual social gatherings, it’s become increasingly difficult to support that “does anyone have a lighter?” friend (you know the one).
Instead, beat them to the punch by giving them a lighter that they’re less likely to lose—emphasis on “less likely”, of course. Choosing a bright color will make it easier to spot, like this offering from Etsy, or take it a step further and add a personal touch. Either way, your friend will think of you fondly the next time they dig in their pockets for a light—especially if you pair it with a fresh Island Classic to try it out on.
Sugar, spice, and everything nice: it just wouldn’t be the holidays without a variety of delicious offerings, made even more “special” when cannabis cooking is involved.
These cute, cheeky and functional kitchen accessories will not only make your master chef friend feel super appreciated, but also guarantees you’ll get first dibs on the delectable dishes they whip up afterwards. Bong appetit, if you will. (Find the dish towel here and the oven mitt here.)
If you're feeling extra generous this season, you can also gift them a jar of Island flower so they're equipped with the special ingredient.
Cannabis: An education
One thing is certain: whether you and your friends are well-versed in all things cannabis or new to the game altogether, there’s room for everyone at our table.
Coffee table books — like the ones found here and here—are not only a stylish, low-key gift, but they’re also helpful in learning the ins and outs of cannabis at your own pace. I guess you could say they’re... highly informative.
This gift pairs wonderfully with a pack of Minis so they have a fresh mini preroll for each reading sesh.
Don't forget the goods
Of course, all these gifts would be made greater if they came with the right supplies to enjoy them.
In case you need another reason to stuff those stockings full of our signature Minis and Classics, this holiday season we’re proud to partner with Last Prisoner Project by donating a portion of the proceeds from our limited-edition holiday collection to support people imprisoned for non-violent cannabis offenses.
