We all know at least one cannabis enthusiast – you might aspire to be a cannabis enthusiast yourself, or perhaps you already are. If you know one of these particular individuals, you know they live and breathe high-quality, curated cannabis, and they certainly know how to enjoy the sensory experience before, during, and after partaking. While it may seem like they already know all there is to know about our favorite plant, the cannabis enthusiast is actually the most exciting person on your list because you get the opportunity to flex your creativity. Just be ready; you’ll want a superior-quality gift because the enthusiast has seen it all.
There’s nothing better than a selection of top-shelf strains and products for gift-giving.

Or, if multiple bowls are the way to fuel your cannabis enthusiast’s holiday spirit, the Grav Clear Menorah is the conversation piece that will last them well through this festive season.
Edible gifts have long been an excellent option for every occasion, and this is no different for the cannabis enthusiast. Ozone gummies are another great feature from the Ascend brand, with forward-thinking flavor combinations and gluten-free/vegan ingredients. Alternatively, send your cannabis enthusiast a symphony of sweetness with Encore’s premium lineup of sugary sweet or sour gummies, delectable caramels, rich chocolates, refreshing cannabis mints, and soothingly Sweet Stones, available in indica, hybrid, sativa, CBD-forward blends, and full-spectrum RSOs.

The Wellness Advocate Gift Guide
Another beautiful revolution happening in the cannabis community is the continued advocacy for those who employ cannabis for wellness reasons. The wellness advocate on your list has likely already tried sun baths, meditation, and yoga before finding that cannabis can help them in many ways. Fortunately, whether they’re looking to simply enhance their well-being, address anxiety or stress, or just want to relax, there are plenty of great gifts for the wellness advocate.
Perhaps more than any other cannabis compound, CBD has been touted as a therapeutic option for many ailments, ranging from stress and anxiety to inflammation and insomnia. CBD-forward products like Avexia Harmony 1:1 CBD tablets can offer the ideal balance between THC and CBD for a harmonious lift into wellness. Meanwhile, Avexia’s Comfort tablets assist with calming a weary mind and inspiring better sleep. Alternatively, consider Verano Bits microdose gummies, available in a host of flavors and replete with adaptogens (natural plant extracts with their own healing benefits), for the wellness enthusiast who is truly looking to heal.
Bath and Body Products
Whether your wellness enthusiast is looking to address joint pain and stiffness or simply indulge in some relaxing “me time,” soothing bath and body products can be a great gift. Pairing the healing properties of Epsom salts with those of THC and CBD, Avexia’s Lavender Bath Soak is a multisensory healing option for those who need an added level of calm. Or, try Pain Relief Balm, also from Avexia, which allows a targeted approach for pain relief and none of the psychoactive effects.
For the wellness enthusiast who has their own high holiday mapped out already, perhaps all you need to do is add the perfect aromatherapy notes to really round out their sensory experience. The fun and funky Sneaker Mini-Candle showcases everyone’s favorite Air Force Ones in candle form, allowing you to give a truly unique gift that can also boost the wellness journey. Or, try Anecdote’s humorous Quarter-Life Crisis candle, replete with the invigorating aromas of grapefruit and mint oils.
The Home Chef Gift Guide
Any food enthusiast loves tools, ingredients, and recipes – and these are all gift ideas that can incorporate cannabis from beginning to end. Gourmet cannabis ingredients and accessories can be a true delight because they give your favorite home chef the chance to experiment.
Cannabutter and canna-oil are the basis for so many great canna-treats ; think about premium strains for cannabutter creation. Simply Herb flower products offer a quality product with flower-forward flavor for the home chef who loves cooking with cannabis, while Savvy’s Bulk Bud is a great way to attain enough quality bud to last several cooking sessions. Or, consider a quality grinder that can help the home chef get the consistency they’re looking for to create cannabutter for all their home creations.
Any person who loves to cook at home needs new ideas for the kitchen, but this is especially true when it comes to cooking with cannabis. Cannabis cookbooks are an excellent way to keep creativity alive. We suggest the Bong Appétit, Mastering the Art of Cooking with Weed, a cookbook just brimming with ideas to help your loved one craft their own small bites for their cannabis kitchen.
Kitchen tools are a classic gift for people who love to cook, and there is an abundance of fun, cannabis-themed tools and accessories out there. The Faire Pot Dealer apron is a fun flair for the home chef who takes their culinary skills seriously. Faire’s Chicken, Pot, Pie oven mitt proclaims love for all three of these timeless favorites. The weed cookie cutter, on the other hand, gives the baker in your life the option to share the love.
The Fashion and Home Decor Gift Guide
One of the best ways to show your enthusiasm for anything is to feature it as decor in the home or on the body. Our fashion and home decor ideas are sure to present you with a bevy of options for the fashion or decorating enthusiast in your life.
Edie Parker goods are the perfect blend of kitsch and functionality that will look beautiful in any space. In 2019, the brand launched “Weedie Parker,” cannabis-themed products in a variety of options. If you know someone on the hunt for a chic cannabis storage solution, the Weedie Parker Stash Storage Case is compact, clever, and cool. With bold colors for interest, this storage container is the perfect upgrade for anyone who’s been carting around the same old box for far too long.
Cannabis Accessories and Ashtrays
With new storage should also come a fun new ashtray because, as beautiful as they are functional, the best ashtrays can start a conversation and end the perfect smoke session. Go hard-boiled with an egg design ashtray, or try a diner-style ashtray in fun, tie-dye colors, as featured in last year’s gift guide.
Weedie Parker also has cannabis pipes so beautiful they will also double as art. The Balloon Pipe is available in stunning colors and is as delightful to use as it is to look at. For the ultimate mod experience, the Edie Parker line offers cut fruit in beautiful colors and bubbly design.
The Weedie Parker collection also offers handbags emblazoned with cannabis themes. For another fashion-forward option, Buy Weed From Women is an advocacy-centered brand that supports a variety of communities, focusing on black-owned, women-led businesses. Choose from t-shirts, sleek jackets, or even a trendy tote bag. For a slightly more subtle approach, weed socks offer a stylish option for your cannabis fashion enthusiast’s love for the lifestyle; choose from classic cotton or a fuzzy style for the ultimate in cozy comfort.
The Experience Seeker Gift Guide
The last person on your list is probably the trickiest. The experience seeker is always trying out the newest product available on the market since they like to stay ahead of trends and love being the first to know about new cannabis industry news. While anything above could please the experience seeker, we suggest something outside the box for those truly interested and invested in the full cannabis experience.
Cannabis Festival Tickets
One of the best gift ideas for cannabis lovers like this is a festival devoted to cannabis. The full experience will allow them to be immersed in culture, fun, and music. These events often last a full weekend and can have informational workshops, the best products, and an interesting group of people who have the same enthusiasm for cannabis. Inquire at your favorite Ivy Hall location or register for our Charter Club to be the first to know about upcoming events.
Another idea for the experience seeker is the cannabis tour, since these individuals crave more knowledge about the lifestyle they love. Much like a winery tour, cannabis tours let them get up close and personal with the growing process. They can see different strains in a variety of growth stages. If your seeker is up for travel, bud and breakfast options exist where smoking is allowed on the premises. Guests can get to know others who are staying, and they can enjoy the experience together.
The cannabis-tasting experience is exactly what it sounds like, and you can think of it as your classic wine-tasting experience but with a much more sensory-stimulating product. With wine tastings, you get a basic overview of how a tasting works and what kinds of flavors and mouth feels you’re trying to identify, and cannabis tastings are similar. Anyone participating gets the opportunity to try a variety of strains, often with CBD cleansers in between to mellow the psychoactive effects of the THC.
