When it is your lady’s birthday, you had better get it right. Last year’s melted box of crappy chocolates and hand-written IOU card didn’t quite make the grade, did they? We have put some thought into it for you so you can relax and get that pot-toking gal pal what she really wants.
1. Buy Her Flowers — The Cannabis Kind
Obvious, right? Not quite. Sure, your local florist has been supplying your annual bouquet of birthday roses for years. But why not buy her favorite flowers this year? Surprise that hard-working woman in your life with an 1/8th of her favorite strain. If she’s my kind of lady she won’t miss the roses nearly as much as she’ll appreciate the buds.
2. Order Her a Prezzie
There are a ton of weed-themed subscription boxes to choose from. Hemper sends out a monthly goody box filled with items keeping smokers, dabbers and the like in mind. Pipes, papers and other marijuana-related goodies — all chosen to fit you! At $29.99 per box (plus shipping and handling), this could be a spontaneous treat for your lady love — and, depending on your budget, it’s also one that can be extended throughout the year to remind her how much you care every single month.
3. Jewelry With a Twist
I was intrigued by an article, Pot Leaf Chic, about a mainstream, high-end designer making “sweet leaf” items a part of her collection. I’d love to own any one piece made by Jacquie Aiche, but with an accompanying price tag that matches my preferred mindset (yep, high), it’s not exactly something I can just pick up on the fly. And that’s what makes it such a great birthday present! In addition to work by Aiche, the popular website Etsy is a host to dozens of marijuana-inspired jewelry makers. One of my favorite items, and one I’ve been meaning to add to my collection, is a THC molecule necklace by Molecular Muse. Brilliant.
4. Make Her Dinner
At a Puff Pass Paint class I attended in Denver, I was able to enjoy a rare treat — a cannabis-infused chicken lettuce wrap. I was waiting for that “planty” taste to hit, after I took a bite but it wasn’t there. Just a delicate wrap that I scarfed down and felt the effects of about 20 minutes later. You can create the same delightful experience with some cannabutter and a little patience. Trust me, no pot-using lady is going to say “no” to her partner cooking dinner — especially with that one special ingredient!
5. A Night Out
There is nothing like a surprise night out, and your lady will love that you planned it all to revolve around her. Her favorite restaurant, or maybe even something unexpected – like the nicest restaurant in town maybe. Maybe your girl is the kind that prefers to go bowling and play arcade games. You know her better than I do, right? All I know is that when I get a surprise on my birthday, one I am not expecting AT ALL, I am happy regardless of what that surprise is. It is simple – it is just nice to know that someone was thinking of me.
So whether you’re new to the birthday gift game or an old pro, try giving a present this year that gives a little more than what she’s grown to expect. Treat her. Surprise her. Spoil her. And then smoke some weed.
