Choosing The Best CBD Gifts For Family And Friends

Posted: December 15, 2020

For many of us, Christmas is a time to celebrate, come together and show appreciation for our friends and loved ones. It is also the time of year where we frantically try to find Christmas gifts and presents that everyone will like and enjoy.

It can definitely be hard to tick all of the boxes but if you know someone who is a fan of CBD, then why not treat them to one or more high quality, lab tested CBD products for the New Year? CBD is a natural food supplement famed for its reported health benefits, such as reducing stress and helping with pain relief. It is often used for sports recovery and for cosmetic reasons as well, so with a range of applications, it appeals to a wide range of people.

What is CBD?

If you yourself don’t know about CBD, it’s a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within hemp that can be extracted for human use. Otherwise known as cannabidiol, it can be used to manufacture a huge variety of personable products and stocking fillers: And of course our popular CBD gifts and gift boxes. With a huge variety of products from trusted brands emerging in the last few years, you can pick from a whole host of effective and reputable items that the CBD lover in your life will really appreciate. Choose any from ICE Headshop and you’ll be gifting the real deal.

Why give CBD as a gift?

  • It’s a stand-out, practical gift
  • It’s very thoughtful for someone who takes CBD regularly
  • There’s a range of flavours and type of products to pick from
  • Can be a small stocking filler, or a main present
  • CBD products last a long time and are easy to store
CBD can make the perfect Christmas gift, as long as someone is over 18 and you already know they’re a fan and have discussed it with their GP. Products come in a variety of shapes and sizes perfect for stocking fillers and under the tree presents. Choose from sweet treats, relaxing face masks and CBD oils that could suit just about anybody. There are different ranges of strength, flavours and forms in which CBD comes, so check in with them if you’re happy to discuss gifts beforehand without spoiling the exact item or items they’re getting. We’ve all received traditional gifts at Christmas time and time again - socks, shower gel, chocolate boxes - and sometimes getting a present that’s a surprise makes it all the more memorable and thoughtful.

Who does CBD make a good gift for?

If you know someone over 18 who takes CBD already, it makes a great gift and shows you pay attention and are considering their well-being at the same time. Legally in the UK, someone must be 18 years or older to enjoy CBD (apart from specific medical cases where CBD is prescribed), but anyone older than that could be interested in it as a gift. Once you know who you’re choosing for, it comes down to picking between types of CBD product, such as edibles or oils. Below are examples of different types of CBD and their diverse applications to help you make a decision.
Type of CBD product Common uses
Edibles - CBD you can eat in different styles and flavours, as well as a variety of strengths.
  • To treat painful conditions as a natural alternative

Always keep the person in mind

Buying CBD for a friend or family member is no more difficult than shopping for regular festive gifts - just think about the person you are buying for and what they would like. Have you seen them use a certain brand before, like Harmony? Do you know they love chocolate flavour vapes? Keep their likes and dislikes in mind and they’ll thank you for it when they get a gift they really want.

Choose third-party lab tested products

We all like to have reassurance that we are getting what we have paid for. Now, more than ever, CBD products are regulated and tested by many third-party labs.
