Enjoying recreational cannabis now and then is one thing, but being a true cannabis connoisseur is a whole other level of knowledge, curiosity, and sophistication. If you know someone who talks about trichomes, knows all about terpenes, and treats the tasting notes of their favorite cannabis like a sommelier would for wine, you may find it difficult to get them a gift that they’ll actually use and love.
But lucky for you, you found Mistifi.
Here, we’ll share our 11 favorite sophisticated stoner gifts for the classy cannabis connoisseur, from products you can wrap up in a box to experiences you can share with them.
1. Light-Blocking Glass Storage Jars
Stashing your cannabis in the right jar can have a major impact on the shelf life and quality of your bud. If there’s a cannabis connoisseur in your life who’s still keeping their high-end strains in disposable baggies or cheap plastic canisters that don’t block out light, get them a light-filtering, airtight glass jar or cannabis humidor that shields their precious herb from damage inflicted by visible light rays. (It will still allow UV-A and infrared rays to pass through its opaque ultraviolet glass, since those actually enhance the potency of your cannabis.)
Infinity Jar is the leading brand that guarantees preservation of dried goods for at least six months, with tests indicating that they might stay good for more than two years. Plus, these jars are scent-proof, spill-proof, heavy-duty, and BPA-free.

2. Puff, Pass, and Picnic
Nothing says you get your friend’s sophisticated palette more than a puff-and-pass picnic at your favorite park. When the weather’s warm, invite them for a daytime excursion to a quiet grassy patch and treat them to takeout, a homemade charcuterie board, or snacks like chile mangos and savory falafel packed in glass Tupperware. (Bring along plenty of water, as well as your favorite beverages kept ice-cold in insulated, reusable bottles.) Before you eat, share a few puffs of your Mistifi Over the Rainbow pen to let the triple-blend of uplifting sativa strains settle in and get you feeling a rush of energy, euphoria, and — probably — some good old belly laughs.
3. High-End Water Pipe
Your friend may always have a soft spot for the multicolored glass pipes of their youth, but the adult cannabis connoisseur deserves the best kind of smoking apparatus.
Upgrade their current piece with a beautiful, display-worthy glass pipe like the ones manufactured by Heir. With thoughtful flourishes of engineering and design, the Heir Waterpipe features a removable tapered glass chamber, an innovative bowl that prevents spills and clogs, and low-cost replacement parts to make this gorgeous instrument a companion for life.

4. Scenic Road Trip
Ditch the regular weekend rotation with your friend and take them on a two-day road trip along the California coast. With stops at sleepy beach towns with breathtaking views, as well as canyons, falls, and passes located all over the Golden State’s sprawl, you’ll have plenty of destinations to choose from wherever you’re located. Surprise your friend by booking a cozy, quaint Airbnb or bringing camping supplies for two in the trunk of your car. Don’t forget the stash, too — whether it’s some high-quality bud or a Mistifi pen to inspire an unforgettable road trip adventure.

5. Odor-Canceling Stash Bag
Even seasoned enthusiasts may still feel nervous carrying their cannabis out in the open. A trusty odor-canceling stash bag is the perfect gift so your stoner friend can effortlessly transport their herb in style. The Alma stash pouch from Stashlogix features activated carbon fiber fabric and an environmentally friendly odor-blocking fabric coating to seal in any smells, with nine elastic hoops that are perfect for keeping your Mistifi pens secure. Small enough to throw in your duffel or backpack, throw over your shoulder or even turn into a makeshift fanny pack with a belt.

6. Cannabis-Themed Decor and Art
Being a true cannabis connoisseur means infusing cannabis into your everyday life. Whether it’s home decor, small accessories, or even some elevated cannabis-themed art, there is no shortage of ways to make your home a true representation of yourself. So, when thinking of the perfect gift for the cannasseur in your life (or if you’re looking to gift yourself something nice), consider something that can elevate the home and be a long-lasting, and long-loved gift.

7. Infuser for Edibles, Lotions, and More
The most serious cannabis aficionados may have already tried their own at-home experiments with making edibles or oil infusions. If your friend has always wanted to make their own THC brownies or Bundt cakes, consider getting them the MagicalButter Machine. It is a favorite amongst truly curious cannabis consumers for its precise method of infusing large-scale batches of butter, oil, glycerin, and more with your choice of herb.
It’s not just for edibles, either. You can make lotions and tinctures, too. In the long run, it’s a money-saving (and waste-reducing) option for the perennially passionate connoisseur in your life. (They might return the favor one day too and drop off a batch of homemade goodies.)

8. Sound and Light Show
Nothing beats a full-body immersion into sound and light when you’re spinning on a good sativa or enjoying an indica’s floaty relaxation. After a few hits of a Mistifi pen, take your friend to a nearby sound bath at your local yoga or meditation center. If you live in a city, you may be able to find an independent venue like San Francisco’s Audium, which calls itself a “theatre of sound-sculptured space.” Even setting up a hammock in your backyard or lighting a few candles in your darkened living room with a great, cerebral playlist can be a great way to treat your friend to an afternoon or evening of pure unwinding.
9. Elevated Cannabis Reading
If you have someone in your life that has a passion for reading and cannabis, then gifting will be a breeze this year when you combine their loves and get them a cannabis-related book. There’s a huge library of amazing cannabis books out there, but some match the connoisseur lifestyle better than others. Luckily we’ve already created a round-up of the best books every cannabis lover should have on their bookshelf.

10. Booze, Sails, and Smoke
Looking for a summer weekend getaway that doesn’t require extensive travel or planning but still lets you escape the bustle of the city? Treat your friend to an afternoon on the water. Rent a boat for the day and bring your favorite snacks, sandwiches, beverages of choice, swim trunks or bathing suits, and cannabis (and lots of sunscreen, obviously) to enjoy in the fresh air and sun.
11. Curated Cannabis
Sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go when giving gifts. So, if you want to get the perfect gift for the cannabis lover(s) in your life, get them some top-shelf cannabis products. Mistifi offers four remarkable vape pens, all made with the most premium craft cannabis and created with the best extraction and blending technologies. Whether it’s an uplifting sativa blend, relaxing indica blend, balancing CBD blend, or the latest hybrid triple-strain blend, you can’t go wrong. Better yet, package them all together for the ultimate Christmas goodie-bag gift.
And, for those of you in California, Santa has some helpers when it comes to getting cannabis delivered. If you want to stay comfy and cuddled up at home this holiday season, Mistifi now delivers directly to your door within the state of California!
12. Tattoos and Nails
Not all gifts have to come in boxes. If you’re getting a gift for a friend or family member that has an affinity for tattoos, consider scheduling them a session with a high-quality artist. Also, let them know that there’re some pretty sweet and meaningful cannabis-inspired tattoos out there for some inspiration.
If you or your friends aren’t big into permanent body art, also consider scheduling a nice day at the nail salon. And feel free to show theirr nail technician some chic cannabis nail art designs to rock on their fingers.
