This year, with cannabis consumption legal – either medically or recreationally – in 33 U.S. states and five more states voting for some form of legalization in the recent election, there’s a good chance your holiday list will include at least one canna-thusiast. Sure, you could stick with the classic sweater or bottle of wine, but why not get creative? To that end, we’ve put together gift ideas for all your pot-loving friends and family, and we’ve also included a special section for DIY folks, plus those on your list who may have a penchant for collecting paraphernalia.
While there are many reported health claims related to cannabis, the fact is combusted cannabis results in contaminants, tars and resins entering a person’s body. To help, Moose Labs MouthPeace Filters use triple-layer activated carbon filtering to clean your smoke. Filters are attached by a colorful, silicone mouthpiece (get it?) that attaches to most bongs or pipes, and the new MouthPeace Mini works with joints, blunts, e-cigs, and vapes.

This card game designed for groups and full of fun weed references is intended for use while players are consuming.

DIY upcycle gift ideas
The cannabis industry is getting creative with their packaging, from lovely jars to cool graphics. Until everything is made from hemp and is 100% compostable, you can upcycle empty containers to make fun gifts for your loved ones. Just make sure containers are cleaned and completely free of any remaining product.
Make candles or plant a mini succulent garden. Fill with herbs, tea blends or make a spice rub. Make mini survival kits with tinder and matches for your next camping trip. Fill with stickers or miniature toys for stocking stuffers. Paint to decorate on-the-go ash trays. Fill with bite-sized homemade edibles.
Pre-rolled joints are often sold in cardboard, plastic, or glass tubes. Take advantage of airtight design and fill with cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans or candies. If it is a glass tube, fill the bottom with sand, insert a miniature tree, seal with a cork and tie with ribbon to make decorative ornaments. Create hanging flower vases, tiny kaleidoscopes (find how-tos on Pinterest), pan flutes or a cool Steampunk chandelier.
Cleaned bottles can be made into tiny vases or jewelry. You could also trade the dropper top for a roller or sprayer to store essential oils blends. For some festive decor, fit the smaller bottles over a set of string lights to create mini lanterns. Fill bottles with ink and top with a mini cork; when gifted with a quill pen and parchment, your niece or nephew will be ready to pack their trunk for Hogwarts.
