The 2019 holiday season is almost upon us, retail-speaking. Christmas displays are already popping up in stores and soon the overhead speakers will be pouring out holiday music, all encouraging you to buy, buy, buy! Did you know that one of the top causes of holiday stress is financial?
If you’re from an average American family, you probably feel pressure to purchase gifts for everyone, from nieces and nephews to third cousins and great aunts. Add to this the expectation of holiday tipping for the all the service people in your life, plus a slew of stocking stuffers and hostess gifts, and your office white elephant party. Whew! No wonder people get so stressed out!
Give yourself a break this season and get crafty. You can make some great cannabis gifts that are not only affordable but have the extra sweetness of being homemade! If crafting is your thing, here are some of our top picks for DIY cannabis crafts for gift-givers on a budget:
Custom Lighter – Do you know what stoners always need? Lighters! This craft is crazy simple and downright budget-friendly. All you need are some lighters (buy in bulk from Amazon or a warehouse store), glue (Superglue or a hot glue gun will work fine) and some flat-backed décor to glue in place. You can pick up all types of cabochons or other decorative items at any craft or bead store. Create a personalized set of 3 for each friend or create one as a part of a larger cannabis themed gift!
Cannabis Bath Salts
This one is little more labor intensive and weighs heavier on the wallet, but cannabis bath salts are a great gift for anyone who suffers aches and pains and enjoys baths. You can purchase pre-made bath salts, but they aren’t cheap. The addition of cannabis oil creates a therapeutic, inflammation reducing soak great for relaxation and minor pain relief. Divide up a batch and store in small, decorative glass jars for holiday giving.
Cannabis-Infused Lotion Bars
The very idea of a lotion bar seems decadent and expensive. Your friends and family will love these rich, moisturizing bars infused with cannabis oil. Great for dry skin and minor skin conditions! They’re all natural and can be infused with the essential oils of your choice. Customize the design and scent for each person on your list!
Painted Stash Jars
Mason jars are great for storing cannabis and come in a variety of sizes. You can purchase them from your local hardware or homewares store that sells canning supplies. Most mason jars are clear which makes them easy to paint and decorate. All you really need is some acrylic paint and your imagination to whip up fun airtight stash jars for all your friends.
