Shopping for a fellow tobacco smoker this Christmas doesn’t have to be expensive, it’s the simple things in life we appreciate the most – but what matters the most is the thought. Ready? Here’s my short list

3 Simple Christmas Ideas For Current Tobacco Smokers

Runner Up #3: Personalized Lighters. This is an endless category, filled with many options. You have tons to choose from and in a wide range, from the iconic zippo lighter to silly ones with funny images or text. Going the higher end route allows for customizable options like engraving or even gold or silver plating. Those would certainly make for unique Christmas gifts that would be appreciated and cared for.

Runner Up #2: Storage boxes. You may think of tobacco storage boxes as a cigar thing, and of course it certainly brings that to mind. But smokers of cigarettes and other tobacco products would also love a nice place to store their gear. Cigarette cases and storage boxes can make for unique Christmas gifts. That goes double for those rolling their own tobacco cigarettes. Which is an excellent segue into…

Runner Up #1: Rolling Tobacco. If you aren’t a smoker yourself you may not have noticed, but cigarettes have gotten expensive. I mean REALLY expensive. Like it or not, state and local taxes have targeted cigarette smokers and made their smoking experience a costly one. Nowadays many smokers are turning to rolling their own cigarettes with loose tobacco to offset the cost hike. Maybe this falls under the unusual Christmas gifts category, but I think a gift of a variety of different rolling tobacco flavors, along with the accessories needed to try it out, would be an excellent gift for a smoker. If he or she gets into the habit of rolling their own, it could turn out to be a gift that keeps on giving in terms of saving them lots of money. Yet there is one gift that is a cost saver and what we think is the best Christmas gift out there for smokers…

Wait…there’s one more gift idea – My Favorite

An Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit. Electronic cigarettes, for me at least fit in both the category of unique Christmas gifts as well as unusual Christmas gifts, but most importantly is that for smokers they really are the best Christmas gift. Not only will they save money, but the smoker in your life can also enjoy a viable alternative that leaves him or her without the stench or stigma of traditional cigarettes such as the tar/carcinogens/smell etc. 

There you have it, the best Christmas gifts for a smoker in my opinion. You can say that I may have had my bias to begin with, but when the facts are laid out there, none of the runner-ups could give a smoker all the advantages that electronic cigarettes have. Give a smoker some accessories like lighters or storage boxes, and there is no doubt that they will find it cool, useful and be appreciative. Give them a head start on rolling tobacco and they will definitely like the cost savings if they can come around on the idea of rolling their own cigarettes. But an e-cigarette starter kit simply takes the cake because we know what most smokers battle with on a daily basis.

Smokers are shunned and pushed into smaller and smaller areas where they are actually allowed to smoke. They get dirty looks if they light up too close to someone and their friends and loved ones aren’t thrilled with that constant odor, to say the least. There is only one item, even if it is seen as one of the more unusual Christmas gifts, which will give most smokers what they really need. Something that will change their routine and their interactions with others, while still giving them the taste and satisfying experience they get from a traditional cigarette. Electronic cigarettes give them all that and more, which is what makes an e-cig starter kit our choice for the 2013 best Christmas gift for smokers.

Happy Shopping!
