The Best Birthday Gifts for Stoners

The stereotype of the goofy stoner who is lazy or unmotivated is a thing of the past. In reality, stoners of today are a diverse group of people, and most are true connoisseurs of their craft. What would be lazy would be getting your stoner friend a plain old ashtray or rolling papers from the gas station on their birthday and ending it there. No, you’re much more clever than that, which is why it’s crucial you step up your game when you buy gifts for stoners.

With the expansion of the cannabis market, your options are almost overwhelmingly limitless. So, if you’re not in tune with the weed culture of today, don’t panic. We’ve picked out some of the best birthday gifts for stoners that are sure to be a hit.


You can’t go wrong with a cool book about weed. The amount of literature out there focused on cannabis is incredible! There are entire gourmet cookbooks dedicated to preparing weed-infused food, books that catalog every strain of marijuana that’s ever been developed, and books that dive into the complex history of the cannabis industry. 

Try to match your stoner friend’s interests with a weed-themed book, and there’s no way you can go wrong. Heck, you may even stumble across one that piques your interest, as well!

Weed Subscription Boxes

You can find subscription boxes for basically any hobby, and weed is no exception. Subscription boxes are great because they’re the gift that keeps on giving. They’re also perfect for gifting to a friend because they do the work of finding a present for you! Most include a curated selection of cool gifts that any stoner will love, so you don’t have to play the guessing game of wondering, “Will they like this?”

There are practical weed subscription boxes that send supplies every so often, including rolling papers, trays, and other glassware items. Some include a selection of pre-rolled joints in yummy flavors. The possibilities are endless, so all you have to do is figure out what kind of cool gifts your stoner friend would be interested in!

Rolling Trays

Nothing is worse than sitting down for a smoke sesh and having nowhere to roll your joints. Most just use the flattest surface around, like an old textbook, and manage from there. But edged rolling trays are the best option for making sure things stay tidy and organized.

Gift your stoner a fancy rolling tray and they’ll be eternally grateful. Not only is this an item that will see regular use — a high-quality one is probably something a stoner wouldn’t buy for themselves, making it an extra special treat!

Weed Pens

Weed pens may not be the most unique gift out there, but they’ll definitely be appreciated. These pens are great for taking discreet hits on the go because they don’t produce smoke like a pipe or joint would. Your stoner friend can slip one into their pocket before going out and remain happily buzzed throughout the night. 

These pens come in every strain imaginable, and there are even Delta-8 and CBD pens that provide a more manageable — or, in the case of CBD, non-existent — buzz. Weed pens are a great and inexpensive gift that any stoner will be glad to have.

Try the Classics

When it comes down to it, you could also just give the obvious option — a whole bunch of weed. They might not necessarily need it, but no stoner has ever said “I have too much weed right now.” High-quality glass pipes and bongs are also an excellent option, especially for collectors or new stoners who are just getting into cannabis. 

Put Thought into Your Gift
