With the holidays right around the corner, start gathering cannabis gift basket ideas for the cannabis lovers in your life with my ganja gift guide! Let’s get stoned for the holidaze!
Most of us cannacosumers are after the same goals: achieving happiness, relaxation & having fun! And who doesn’t want that?
Not only are cannabis gift baskets fun to build, but you can also customize every piece depending on your cannabis lover’s preferences whether that’s for medicinal or recreational use (or perhaps a bit of both)!
In this guide, you’ll find 21 unique ideas including some cannabis essentials to really elevate your sessions along with lots of “punny” gift ideas to help you create a “budding” box or basket of cannabis creations.

Cannabis Gift Basket Essentials
Whether you’re a new or seasoned cannaconsumer, you’ll always need the proper equipment to get your smoke or edible-making session started & keep it going.
Below are items that I personally use each time I smoke or bake with cannabis.
This is actually the grinder that I use every day, and I absolutely love it! It’s easy to clean, has four chambers that catch every bit of kief with a plastic scraper, and grinds smoothly.
If life can’t always be rainbows & sunshine, at least your smoke sessions can be 🙂
But it may be time for an upgrade to this pineapple pleaser for myself!
2. Herb Catcher Trays
Herb catcher trays (a.k.a rolling trays) are an easy & efficient way to keep the mess off your counters.
If you’ve ever gotten resin on ANYTHING, you know how impossible it is to get off without rubbing alcohol and can ruin surfaces.
PLUS it catches any particles when transferring from your grinder to your bong, pipe or joint that you can save to use later.
And this set happens to come with some rolling papers, a rolling machine, and a joint storage tube. More bang for your buck!
This is the same exact tray that I have. It has saved my countertops over and over and over again!
A notable staple to any cannabis gift basket, edibles are by far the easiest way to microdose. Whether you choose to purchase or make them, edibles are the perfect stoner stocking stuffer.
Pipes are a bit more portable and easier to conceal and require no water, unlike a bong or dab rig.
5. Bongs & Rigs
Bongs & rigs are my favorite delivery method for immediate relief & relaxation, and Hemper Co has beautiful pieces from the simplest to the most detailed.
This is one of the bongs that I use, and right now it’s 10% off!
I also have this one, and love it! Zong bongs are a ton of fun for the seasoned stoner because it changes up the way in which you inhale & creates a cool smoke pattern as the smoke rises up through the neck.
With zongs, you typically have to rip it a little harder because of the kinking which can sometimes create a stronger high overall. This is totally dependent on your tolerance and technical skill in smoking from bongs or pipes.
I don’t recommend using a zong bong in your very first smoke session as it can be a bit too intense.
6. Cannabis Gift Basket Cleaning Essentials
There is nothing unhealthier (or nastier) than a dirty, resin-filled bong with old bong water. Same goes for pipes with built-up resin.
Yes, it may get you a bit more stoned, but is a breeding ground for bacteria and lung irritation. That’s why it’s so important to clean your glass pieces regularly.
There are DIY methods using isopropyl alcohol & salt, but a glass-grade cleaning solution such as KLEAR-KINE Kryptonite Glass Cleaner contains no harsh chemicals and is formulated for human use & safe on your hands.
Don’t forget to grab some pipe cleaners too!
7. Herb Vaporizers
Take note that this is different than a vape pen in which a concentrate or distillate is used. This vaporizes dry cannabis bud and has adjustable temperature settings.
Many people prefer this method of inhalation as it is less harsh on the lungs than a bong or pipe & you’ll avoid inhaling caked-on plant resin that can form in bongs and pipes.
Plus this bad boy above heats quickly with a digital display screen for better temperature control & tracks session length. It comes as a box set filled with other goodies to extend the life of the vaporizer.
And if you prefer cannabis oil, this Pax Era Pro vaporizer has multiple temperature settings, heats quickly, and is enabled with a smart sensor that can scan the oil blend and provide you with manufacturer’s information, the strain type, and any lab testing performed.
8. Marijuana-Themed Mugs
Cozy up by the fire with this Christmas-themed mug. Whether your coffee or hot cocoa is cannabis-infused or not is totally up to you!
We’ve worn out the term “wake-n-bake”, so instead, let’s “roast & toast”!
Treat her like the CannQueen that she is!
Not only useful for making waffles, satisfy all of your munchie cravings with this fun cannabis-leaf imprinted waffle maker that can also be used to make quesadillas, grilled cheese & cinnamon rolls!
With an 8-inch non-stick cooking surface that heats quickly & cleans easily, this is an ideal gift for fun & quick cannacooking – no infusion necessary! My (munchie) mouth is already watering.
Curl up with your favorite book under this super plush & classy-looking cannabis blanket and you’ll be feeling extra “toasty”.
11. Budding Books
And speaking of curling up with your favorite book, no cannabis gift basket would be complete without a good reading companion. Discover some of my favorites below!
This one holds a very special place in my heart because it was THIS very book that kickstarted the entire idea of me creating this blog so that I can help as many people as possible understand, use and love cannabis as much as I do!
Not only that, but the wordplay on the front, “A Pharm to Table Guide”, is also what helped me craft my brand name, tagline, and all of my other “plant-based” puns! If it were me, this would be the centered focus of my cannabis gift basket.
I absolutely love this book, and Sophie Saint Thomas does such a great job explaining all of the unique ways that you can incorporate cannabis into your self-care routines. Not only a great read during the holidays but for any time of the year when life gets a bit stressful.
This is also a great book to gift someone totally new to cannabis or on the fence about trying it. I love how it really destigmatizes the use of cannabis for overall health & mental wellness.
Also by Sophie Saint Thomas, this pocket guide is an excellent read for those who may be too sensitive to the effects of THC or where THC is not yet federally legal.
Who said adults can’t color and do word searches? Wind down with weed with this activity book. Chill out with some trivia, word scrambles, & coloring. You’ll also find new podcasts & documentaries to add to your reefer repertoire!
12. Cannabis Cookbooks
This is a wonderfully crafted cookbook filled with pictures and all kinds of facts & tips about cannabis and how cannabinoids and terpenes enhance the dishes that you create.
From savory to sweet, this self-proclaimed Joy of Cooking (but with weed) is the perfect gift for an aspiring chef or cannachef! (you can totally make all of these recipes without cannabis too).
Written by Cheri Sicard, the “Martha Stewart of weed” according to the Daily Beast, this cookbook is ideal for those new to using cannabis in cooking to make edibles and perfect for those looking for medical marijuana recipes.
She also provides a dosing guide and cooking fundamentals for the beginner!
If you don’t already follow The Herbs Somm, give her a follow right now!

Touted as The Cocktail Whisperer, Warren Borrow brings you 75 “cannabis-influenced” recipes to choose from along with a little hemp-derived history. From cannacocktails to syrups, bitters & teas, this crafty cannabis cocktail guide will really “raise your spirits” this holiday season.
13. Pre-Made Infused Cocktails
Pre-made infused cocktails (21 and older) are a great addition to any cannabis gift basket for instant celebration!
Or “Elevatate Your Senses” with Malus, a cannabis-infused cider! I prefer ciders over beer for the sweetness & lighter feeling. They really hit the nail on the (pot)head with this cannaconcoction infused with 3mg of THC!
14. Cannabis Games
Similar to Catan or Risk, strategize to maximize your cannabis fields & protect them from peddlers, animals & marijuana monarchs to become the ultimate lord of the land…or in this case…cannabis.
“No one near, the palace is only for the King. The King, his excellence in sin”.
Elevate your smoke sessions with these thought-provoking questions, prompts & actions. And as the warning label states: not recommended for people without a personality! Having fun is required 😉

19. Infusion Machines
For the cannacook in your life! Share the art of cannabis cooking with one of these infusion machines, or upgrade your slow cooker for the cannaculinary purist!
Infusion machines can be a great investment to control odor a bit better & keep all of your cannabis cooking in one place. Many people choose these machines for their ease of use & clean-up, and are a great option for those renting or in condo/townhome situations with shared walls.
They’re also great for non-cannabis infusions. Infuse other herbs like basil, rosemary or sage into cooking oils or orange peels, cloves & cinnamon into oils or wax to make potpourri.
Please note that many often claim that they are odorless, but you’ll still notice some cannabis odor throughout the decarboxylation process.
This machine and bundle is specific to making cannabutter, and provides you with silicone trays for infusion & storage.
If you prefer to decarb and cook with cannabis the classic way, then why not upgrade your slow cooker? I love this model because it comes with a thermometer that inserts right through the lid so that you never have to worry about heat loss. One less piece of equipment to order & pay for!

Even if you want it to be a surprise, try to get a feel for your giftee’s tolerance level & preference before going full bore OR opt to make CBD gummies (all you’ve got to do is decarb for a little longer prior to infusing).
