Holiday Shopping Gift Guide
Tis the season! It’s that time again. Christmas! Whether you are Christian or a different faith, Christmas marks the number one gift giving season of the year. Gift giving is an art and a talent. We all know the gift cards are great, but a true gift comes from the heart, and it attaches special meaning to the giving. A great gift says everything you want to say about a person without words.
I’ve been in retail for 21 years. You might say I have become a master at helping people pick out the right gift to convey that special connection with another person. Let’s start out with some rules and guidelines before I give you some examples.
Rules of Gift Giving
#1: Price does not matter.
Gift giving is all about the connection, not the price tag. Suggested price levels are for people too lazy to give a proper gift. They need guidelines too. Sentiment is the primary guiding force behind a great gift. The perfect gift may come with a price tag well below budget.
#2: Giving is an opportunity, not an obligation.
Positivity throughout the gift giving process starts with the buyer. Everyone needs a reminder that true gift giving is not an obligation. Gift giving is an opportunity to create a positive connection between the giver and the receiver.
#3: Perspective is the key.
Take yourself out of the process. A great gift does not multitask as your next favorite thing. The receiver’s perspective should always drive the gift. You may love purple, but does the receiver share your color bond?
#4: Release expectations.
You have done the work. A thoughtful gift with a special connection is given. Now, release any expectations you have for the receiver’s reaction or enjoyment of the gift.
Great Gifts on a Budget
Glass by Nobody Pipe
You will look like an all star giving a custom Nobody Glass piece to any friend or loved one. Each piece is unique. They are hard to obtain! No other store has his pieces. Artist enforced retail pricing ensures affordability.
Comfy, hip, and many colors to choose from. This is a great gift for more casual smoke buddies. Maybe put a note in the box remembering “that one time” you spent with the receiver.
Dry Herb Vaporizer
Give the gift of health. Maybe your partner in chronic has hinted at enjoying the sacred herb with less combustion. This little portable vaporizer has been dubbed “The Perfect Vaporizer.”
420 Science Stash Jar
This is a great multitasking gift with unlimited potential. The stash jar works as a great gift on its own, but you can put other items in it as well. Now you have the opportunity to place all those connected items in the jar and make the gift truly special. If it’s for a casual smoking buddy, consider stuffing it with a Toker Poker, some Hempwick, and Rolling Papers.
The beauty of this gift is in its utility and versatility. Tapestries work great as couch covers, picnic blankets, wall hangings, and bedspreads.
Oil concentrates have become a popular way to enjoy the sacred herb. But watch out, those prefilled pens are complete crap. #ThisThingRips makes the best vape pens on the market. And the second generation OG Lava Quartz model is on clearance at Smokin Js.
