The holiday season has arrived, so we’re arming you with The Cannabist’s gift guide for 2016.
It’s our third annual compilation — when shopping for weed gifts, it just keeps getting better and better. This year, a head shop revolution is changing the game with highly curated selections of stylish smoking accoutrements that actually fit into our lives. And as we suspected, haute couture is even more on board with the likes of Alexander Wang putting pot on the runway. Legalization continues to spread and business is still booming, elevating cannabis culture into a regular part of our lifestyle.
In no particular order, we present our picks for every enthusiast on your list. The majority of items are available online — because shopping is always better with a buzz.
Happy high holidays!

Ready, set, roll with Tetra’s handpicked set of essentials: private-label unbleached hemp rolling papers, a white bronze Fog Pin for packing and fine-tuning, a flameless Slide lighter, storage box and a jewel-like bottle of Japanese eye drops — all encased in a nylon zip pouch by Baggu.
2. Coda Signature Forte Truffles, $20

4. Shed Brooklyn Dog Collar, $30

Infuse it yourself, from food and oil to lotions and tinctures, with “the world’s first countertop Botanical Extractor.” We already have one up and running in our kitchen, and it is indeed one magical machine.
6. Mister Green Hippie Shit, $89
This blend of soft wood, neroli, musk, smoke and leather produced in collaboration with Portland, Ore.-based apothecary Maak Lab was inspired by “the smell of burnt Palo Santo” (Spanish for “holy wood”), which is burned during ceremonies and shamanic rituals. Known to be spiritually purifying, it’s sexy on all sexes.

9. Jane West Collection by GRAV, The Steamroller, $65

15. Dr. Dabber Boost eRig, $149.95
With a glass water-filtration system for the smoothest of hits, it’s still the most civilized dab setup we’ve seen yet — no blowtorch required.

Oh, and it’s all easy to store in an airtight, padded box.

Step up your storage with this black walnut handcrafted stash box, which doubles as a prep tray, and triples as a stand-alone statement piece.

20. Cedar & Finch Canary Pouch Combo, $159
The Seattle-based stash box company has expanded its lineup with a hand-stitched leather carrying case and pipe set. Its zippered top pocket fits most small pipes, but the handcrafted maple-and-exotic Wenge wood Lid’l Pipe that comes with the pouch works best.
