One of the absolute best parts of legal cannabis is that it opens up a world of new gift ideas. If you’re not sure what to buy for birthdays, anniversaries, or the holidays, but you know that your friends and family enjoy cannabis, you simply must consider personalized weed gifts.
Weed makes buying gifts for those hard to shop for people a bit… easier. There are countless options when it comes to gifting cannabis. Just be sure you know your local laws as to the quantities which can be legally gifted and ensure your recipient also lives in an area where recreational use is legal. Then you can simply select the individual items you think your weed loving tribe would like to try, or you can build a weed gift basket, which includes a variety of products.
Before we explore some options for how to build a great weed gift basket, you’ll want to consider a few things. First, remember, it’s not about what you like, it’s about what your friend or family likes.
Think of it this way, if you’re a concentrate aficionado with a preference for sativa, you wouldn’t necessarily want to receive a basket full of indica flower strains and edibles, unless you had expressed a desire to explore something new.
While your preferences can definitely help you select products within your areas of expertise, you’re looking to choose personalized weed gifts, which means chosen for the recipient. So, you will want to do a little bit of sleuthing as to their preferences before you begin to shop.
A good place to start your journey is online research. There are a variety of resources which can help you learn more about the products you’re considering. Plus, you can talk with the staff at your local dispensary to get a better understanding of the products you may like to include.
When creating your weed gift basket masterpiece, consider choosing a theme. For example, if your recipient is a connoisseur of unique flower strains, you may want to build a “bouquet” of flower or pre-rolls. If they love edibles, perhaps the theme of your basket will be edibles for their next snacky sesh.
Whatever theme you select, remember that you’re not confined to just weed products. There are countless, inexpensive accessories that can really round out your gift basket. Just be sure that you compliment the theme of your basket with the proper accessory, you wouldn’t build a gift basket with concentrates and include rolling papers.
How to Build A Weed Gift Basket
Now that we’ve tackled how to approach your weed gift basket, let’s talk about how to build one. Remember, the term “gift basket” implies an actual basket, but you’re not limited to using a basket. The “basket” is simply a representation of a container. You can definitely get creative with a box or other vessel that you choose. Remember, these are personalized weed gifts, so select the medium that will compliment your theme. You could use a rolling tray as a base, and then add in your products and accessories. Then wrap it all up in clear cellophane and tie the top with some festive ribbon. The choice is yours, so definitely get creative.
Size & Price
There’s really no right or wrong way to build a weed gift basket. But as you’re adding products to your cart there are two key elements to keep in mind — size and price. Often, we think “the bigger the better.”
Keep in mind that while a giant weed gift basket will make quite an impression, you will want to keep your budget in mind. It’s good practice, before you begin to pull together the products you’d like to include, to define your budget. Once you’re nearing your budget, you can always accessorize your gift basket with other personalized weed gifts that are less expensive. Items such as lighters, hand pipes, grinders, and vape batteries are excellent, functional fillers for your gift basket. Also, don’t forget that you can add other inexpensive items to your basket, like silicone hot pads, or other multi-tasking weed themed details such as cotton swabs and alcohol for cleaning rigs and pipes.
