You can choose from six different glass bats to complete the set. Looking for a unique piece of jewelry for the lady in your life? Elevate works with an incredible designer to create THC rings, necklaces and earrings. Unlike most jewelry depicting the cannabis plant, these pieces are made to resemble the scientific symbol of cannabis, which makes it both stunning and camouflaged. Elevate also has a variety of pipes, bubblers, blunt tips and dab swabs making this website a one-stop shop for all your holiday cannabis needs.
Send Your Love with KushKards
KushKards originally came about as a DIY gift to a friend from founder Lauren Miele. Each cannabis-themed card is beautifully decorated, has a place to insert a pre-rolled joint, and speaks to special occasion. For this holiday season, choose from the following messages: Light Up Your Holidays, Smoking Trees, Merry Kushmas, Ho Ho High, Eat, Smoke and Be Thankful. Grab a few birthday KushKards while you’re at it. It’s always someone’s birthday. The recipient will be able to strike a match on the tabs at the bottom of the card. Lauren Miele is a genius! These are perfect gifts for your cannabis loving friends and family who love to smoke doobies. And, most people could use a toke or two around the holidays!
Pass the Nuggy
NugTools created the original Nuggy and has recently introduced the Nuggy Hybrid and the Nuggy Dab. Both new models are outfitted with high-quality and heat resistant Aluminum Oxide (ALOX) shell, which can be used as a carb cap. The first generation Nuggy has ten functions pared down into one, palm-sized device. The spring-lock system helps each tool stay in place while in use. The Dab and Hybrid are smaller scale and offer four and six tools respectively. The newer versions come in blue or pink, while the original comes in green. With the original version, consumers also get a flashlight and batteries are included! Any of the multi-tools in the Nuggy family will make a great gift for the medical and/or recreational consumer.
Cannabis Storage Solutions by Cannador

Portable, Premium and Ultramodern Pax Vaporizers
Vape pens are a great way for the cannabis consumer to enjoy their herbs or concentrates on the go.

The company constantly pushes the boundaries of the vaporizer industry to bring the consumer top notch pens. Pax has three vaporizers to choose from. Their newest model is the Pax 3. It comes in eight colors and can burn dry herb or concentrates. While most pens serve their purpose, Pax goes above and beyond ensuring consumers get the full flavor profile of their flower or concentrate. Pax 2 is for dry herb use only. It comes in either black or silver and either are sleek and discreet. Finally, Pax carries the concentrate only Era. This is perfect for the gift giver on a budget. The Era itself is only 19.99, but Pax's high standard for quality in creation doesn't stop at the Era. It comes in black and fits in the palm of your hand making it super discreet and lightweight. The superior engineering of these pens makes for a truly elevating experience and a fantastic gift for any consumer on your list.
