Weed-themed presents have historically fallen into gag gift territory, and while I love a corny moment, it’s refreshing to see that artists and designers are starting to treat cannabis with a little reverence as a way to better reflect the relationships that people have with this plant. As the editor-in-chief of Broccoli magazine, I know there’s tremendous diversity among weed lovers—there is no single “type” of cannabis enthusiast, which is why it’s so exciting to see cannabis-themed items that appeal to our other sensibilities and interests. Personally, I find that weed is a vector for other things—it propels me into an expansive, creative mindset. I love being able to represent that aspect of my relationship to weed through objects, scents, books, and anything beautiful and fun that taps into my senses and encourages an engaging experience.
You won’t find any THC or CBD in this guide, because I believe that cannabis appreciation shouldn’t be limited to consumption. As the plant continues its path to normalization, it opens up a vast potential for expression that connects weed to other creative parts of life. Below, you’ll find weedy gift ideas for weed people who are into art, food, design, nature, literature, fashion, decor, and more.
1. A beautiful bong
The ancient art of ceramics and smoking come together with Minh Le Studio’s bongs, made by a fifth generation ceramicist from Vietnam, now based in Los Angeles.
2. A flower-inspired coffee table book
The THC-producing part of the cannabis plant is the flower, and A Weed is a Flower celebrates weed and flowers of all kinds through artful cannabis photography. This book resonates with anyone who thinks the cannabis plant deserves to be seen through a lens of beauty and awe.
