As people get older and they become more successful it can often become tricky finding the right gift for them come Christmas or birthday. It is the old awkward thing of what do you give the person who has everything? The truth, however, is that nobody has everything and there is always room to find an angle or an opportunity. For example, if your person happens to be a smoker then there is suddenly a whole world of opportunity that opens up and into which you can delve to find a unique gift. It might not be a world with which you are completely familiar, and if that is the case, here are a few ideas to set you on your way.
Find the flavour
Electronic cigarettes have opened up a whole new world of opportunity and if your person is a keen vaper, then you are operating in fertile ground. A vape is a device that the smoker inhales from but what they are actually consuming starts as e-cigarette liquid, which is something that comes in a huge range of flavours and strengths. In the same way that lovers of craft beer love to experiment and taste different brands and flavours, so too do electronic smokers enjoy trying new flavours of vape. So, help them out by getting them something quirky or different.
Light it up
It is a little more old-school than a vaping related product, but if your person smokes a more traditional product like a pipe or cigarette then a classy lighter could be the way to go. A nice Zippo for example that they can keep forever, perhaps with a personal message engraved on it. These are very durable and lasting gifts and they are items that most smokers will keep with them most of the time. So, even if you would prefer that your person didn’t smoke, if you are resigned to the fact that there is nothing you can do about it, give them a lighter to ensure that you are always close to them – albeit in memory through the gift.
Do smokers also like it?
Ask almost any smoker when it is that they smoke the most and they will probably tell you that it is when they drink. So, recognize this and act accordingly. Find out what their tipple of choice is and get that for them. And make sure that it is something nice. Don’t settle for standard lager or a cheap bottle of plonk. Enhance their experience by making it something classy. A craft beer. Some quality whisky or something that will help to make some lasting memories.
A new experience
If your person likes to smoke, then look to offer them a new experience. If they smoke cigarettes, then look to get them a vape. If they already vape then how about some high-quality cigars. Or perhaps a pipe and some tobacco. If you are a smoker these new items could be something that you look to experience together. Smoking a pipe or hanging out in a cigar bar can be great fun. Remember, it is about making memories and having new experiences. It can and should be a whole lot of fun!
