So you’re looking to get your stoner buddy a little gift, eh? Whatever the occasion may be, you know your friend well, and want to get something that shows it. You don’t want to end up having got them the exact same thing his grandmother got him now, do you? How lame would that be (unless it’s the grandma who’s awesome)?
Anyway, we’ve come up with a list of things with which you cannot go wrong. They’re all available right here in the UK, and you’ll be able to find something you can work with, no matter what your budget.
Right, then, here we go!
1. The RAW Rolling Tray
Every great artist needs a good worktop to perform his magic. Whenever you’re rolling, breaking up, packing or whatever, there are few things as annoying as having precious herb scattering all over the place – it happens to the best of us, and you know if you add up all the little bits and pinches over a while it gets to be quite a bit of a waste. It doesn’t have to be. Solutions rarely come in a form as simple and efficient as this. RAW rolling trays are perfectly suited to accommodate all your smoking gear.
What you get:
The RAW rolling tray comes in three sizes; small, medium, and large, though for our purposes we’d suggest going with either the medium or small. Even in these sizes, you get a considerable surface area on the highly durable tray. Its sides are raised high enough that you’re assured nothing is going to slide or roll off it as you’re doing your thing. An all-round, value for money, quality purchase.
2. Nuggy – The Smoker’s Multi-tool
Another awesome gift idea is the handy little wonder lovingly named the Nuggy. To put it quite simply, this is the smoker’s Swiss Army Knife – and that’s nothing but the naked truth. Like the Swiss multi–tool, this little wonder packs more tools and specialised features than you could wave a blunt at. Carrying the Nuggy with you will turn you into a herb-smoking McGyver – ready wherever and whenever to pack, prepare, and toke up with no hassle.
What you get:
In its mini-arsenal of tools, the Nuggy comes equipped with scissors, a knife, a roach clip, a tamper, a mini-spoon, a bottle opener, a glass-friendly glass-scraper, a poker/pick, a flat[-head screwdriver, and an LED flashlight with batteries included to boot! All these spring-locking tools come in a high quality stainless steel finish for long-lasting use.
All this in a an incredibly handy setup small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand (they might as well have called it the Snuggy)
3. Biscuit Favourites Hamper
The Munchies are real. They do not forgive. They do not forget (well, maybe). Anyway, if there’s one thing sure to bring a tear to the corner of a stoner’s eye after a full-on session, it’s the sight of food; good food – and in plenty. Make your buddy’s day with this jam-packed loot box and you’ll have a friend and a brother for life.
What you get:
Well, in this case you’ve got a whole lot of options to choose from in terms of what actually goes into the hamper. This particular one, though, will contain an assortment of muffins, biscuits, and cookies in various textures, flavours, and sizes. Who could say no to that?

4. The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook
This right here is a classic. This illustrated cookbook is designed to kill two birds with one stone; to get you sky high while simultaneously dealing with the munchies Created by a ten year veteran writer with the classic High Times Magazine, every cannabis connoisseur worth his salt should have one around. This lavishly illustrated piece of art might not qualify as the stoner bible exactly, but it should have a very special place in every herbalist’s abode.
What you get:
The book offers a wide array of recipes. Coming to a total of fifty in all, it covers recipes as diverse in scope as Pineapple express upside-down cake, cocktails such as the Jamaican me crazy, up to and including their masterpiece THC infused turkey dinner. The book also contains a lot of historical tidbits and general marijuana trivia that is a delight to discover. With the acknowledgements section of the book including names such as Easy Bake Dave and Evan Budman, you can be sure you’re in for a laid-back, though thoroughly well-presented journey into the mellow world of marijuana fine dining.
P.S. Don’t worry, they’ve dedicated a killer section to that beloved staple of baked delight – the pot brownie – so rest easy.
5. The Magnum 2 Dry Herb Vaporizer
If you’re looking to take things up a notch, you couldn’t go wrong with the sky-high finish of the Magnum 2. This is a pen style dry herb vaporiser that’s far ahead of the competition both technologically and aesthetically. It quite simply cannot be topped in its class.
What you get:
The Magnum 2 is built with a fully anodized aluminium body to give you that satisfying hefty feel while maintaining its durability and undeniable sleekness. Its polished crystalline ceramic oven coupled with its Pyrex glass mouthpiece work in tandem to deliver a vapour quality that is hardly matched anywhere. It boasts an OLED display serving a digital temperature gauge, last setting memory function, as well as a sleep/wake/auto function (because they could, that’s why). A standalone air path with an adjustable airflow functionality means you can tune your gear just right.
Aside from a plethora of other peripherals, you have the option of doubling up on the Magnum 2 with a water bubbler for water filtration, if that’s your bag.
Like we said, with any among these five, you couldn’t possibly go wrong. In cases like these you should be sure to hang around a bit after you deliver the gift. Moreover, in the interest of being the right sort of friend, don't forget to bring a bit of green with you; you know, for the test drive, right?
