Get some fresh gift ideas for that 420-friendly lady in your life. Or lad, or you!
Let’s face it; gift giving is hard. You want to get them something you know they’ll like and use, and you don’t want to cop out by going with just a gift card or straight cash. But, if you know a girl who likes to smoke it up, here’s a few cute ideas that are both aesthetic and useful!
Okay, okay, maybe this doesn’t seem like the greatest gift, but I’m not just talking about those gas station Bics that you ‘forgot’ to give back to that guy you met at the party. There are options now, one for any aesthetic. Sick of cheap six packs? Get her a rechargeable electric lighter (yeah, I know, I’m surprised that’s a thing, too). Too hard to hold down the button to keep the flame going? You can get custom casings, as well as different finishings--anodized, rose gold, whatever sparkle matches her style.
It’s a cliche, but it’s a cliche for a reason. And if your girl works hard and relaxes harder, then CBD topicals may just be the thing. While we love the chilling effects of THC, we can’t forget the myriad of medical benefits of CBD. Not only is it great for anxiety and stress-relief, it can also act as an anti-inflammatory. Try a few CBD bath bombs, or some infused lotion and watch her daily aches melt away.
Now, we’ve talked about grinders before, but only in a practical sense. Much like lighters, you can get a whole host of styles, colors, prints and finishes, particularly if you get a metal one. I’m more of an edibles fan, but even I couldn’t say no to a four chambered galaxy grinder.
A pipe is a pipe, right? WRONG. Okay, well, kind of. People find ways to smoke hemp out of just about anything. But, while the internet can show you how to smoke out of an apple or a fish, it can also lead you to some truly gorgeous artistry. Glass pipes come in a thousand shapes, patterns, and styles, as do resin. From octopus tentacles to ice cream cones to fairy mushrooms, the options are endless.
Much like pipes, bongs don’t just come in one shape or size. You can pick up frosted glass for a chic look, or marble striping and looping stems like something straight out of Dr. Seuss (let’s face it, that guy probably toked up before writing most of his books). Or, for portability and durability, you can even give silicone a try.
Now, ashtrays come in a lot of options, but a lot of options can also be used as ashtrays. I don’t mean that empty water bottle that’s been sitting on your picnic table for three months, either. Like everything else on this list, you can get plenty of things customized. Think of those epoxy resin videos you see on TikTok; picture a galaxy swirl moon, or a spooky red coffin. You think it, someone has probably made it.
Remember what I just said about ashtrays? Ditto for your rolling trays. Just about anything with a smooth, non-porous surface and an outer edge can be used to roll a joint, so if your girl is on the bougie side, imagine a gorgeous marble serving tray to hold your papers. Who said smoking weed can’t be classy? Of course, nothing wrong with a classic metal tray, preferably with a cool design on top.

At this point I’ve covered pretty much every smoking accessory you can think of, but as we all know, some people consider weed less of a hobby and more of a lifestyle. And given that our green friend is rather infamous for sparking creativity, there’s no shortage of original, gorgeous leafy artwork just waiting to grace your walls.
Decorating your space is nice, but if you want to make a statement when you’re not at home, clothes are the way to go. (Obviously, no clothes makes a statement too, but we’re trying to stay out of jail here.) Consider a hemp-leaf hoodie for those who like it comfy, or a cute 420 hat to contend with the summer heat!
And last, but certainly not least, every girl’s go-to favorite: Jewelry. Of course, you always have that flashy option of heavy chains with diamond-studded pendants, but you can also get clever with it. Maybe some hemp molecule earrings for your favorite science nerd, or a delicate gold leaf pendant for some subtle elegance.
The options are endless, but it doesn’t have to be nearly as daunting as it seems. And if you’re not sure you’ve quite hit the mark, you can always throw in a joint or two to sweeten the deal. It’s the thought that counts, so do a little thinking and you’ll make it just fine. And if you’re really lost, you can bite the bullet and just get her a mystery box. Good luck out there!
