We all know someone who’s impossible to find gifts for when the holidays roll around. The person who “has everything”. The person who claims to “not want anything”. The person who knows exactly what they want but refuses to tell you because “haven’t you been paying attention to what I like anyways?”

Have no fear! Because if the person you have the hardest time shopping for is one of the ~50% of Americans who live in states with legal access to cannabis and claim to be cannabis consumers (per BDSA Consumer Insights data), then we have the answers! For this Holiday season, we’ve pulled together a shopping list that can satisfy anyone from the most discerning cannaseur to the righteous stoner who knows that a friend with weed (even cheap weed ? ) is a friend indeed.

The last thing anyone wants is to be running around looking for an elusive gift, but that’s never an issue with BDSA data at your fingertips. With BDSA’s Menu Analytics tool, we’ve curated a list of some of the best holiday gifts for any price point, with high availability across their respective markets. Without further ado, here is BDSA’s Holiday cannabis buyers’ guide, with top product choices for stocking stuffers (coming in at an equivalent ARP of ~$5/g), big-ticket gifts (available at an equivalent ARP of >$15) and “in-between” under the tree treats (~$5-$15).

Flower and Preroll

Flowers aren’t just for Springtime! With ~45% of inhalable consumers in adult-use states saying that flower is their preferred method of consumption, some kind bud makes the perfect gift for the stoners in your life.
