With Christmas just around the corner and the year coming to a close, it’s time to turn your thoughts to those you hold dear—and, of course, what thoughtful gifts will bring smiles on the big day.
Choosing the right presents can be a challenge, but giving the gift of a smoke-free lifestyle is a wonderful way to show you care. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for the vaper in your life but have no idea where to start, fear not, I’m here to help.
Whether you’re looking to treat someone special with a vape kit upgrade, or want to spoil yourself with some new e-liquid blends, I’ve hand-selected my top vaping gifts for this festive season. This guide is divided into four categories, allowing you to skip straight to the relevant section based on your experience level. So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
First-Time User Vape Gifts
We all have that friend or family member who’s constantly trying to ditch their smoking habit, often to no avail. If this sounds familiar and you’re keen to lend them a helping hand, consider my top recommendation for those new to vaping: a disposable e-cigarette.
Engineered for ultimate convenience, disposable vapes require no prior vaping knowledge or experience, making them the perfect gift for absolute beginners! With no fiddly buttons or intricate settings, they are ready to use straight out of the box and their compact shape makes them ideal for discreet vaping on the go. A key aspect that makes disposables the perfect choice for recent ex-smokers is their use of nicotine salts.
Nic salts, sourced naturally from tobacco leaves, deliver a vaping experience that closely mimics that of smoking, making them ideal for those trying to transition from smoking to vaping. Nic salts serve up a robust throat hit and fast-acting nicotine relief—all while ensuring discreet vapour levels. If you’re buying a disposable vape for someone else, it’s a good idea to find out what kind of flavours they enjoy first.
After all, if they’re the kind of vaper who prefers fun fruity blends, they’re probably not going to get on well with a tobacco-flavoured vape. But if your loved one has never tried vaping before and is yet to find their go-to blend, consider picking up a few different flavours for them to sample.
My Top Picks - Disposable Vapes
Beginner to Intermediate Vape User Gifts
These next gift ideas are perfect for the vape fans in your life who are ready to commit to something longer-lasting.
While disposable vapes are great for newbies with zero experience, they’re not always the most cost-effective option in the long run.
The following prefilled pod kits are made by best-selling vape brands and boast the same style and dimensions as their disposable counterparts, making them a great fit for those wanting to make the transition to something more sustainable. Compatible with prefilled vape pods that can be swapped out for another when empty, these vape kits are ultra-convenient and easy to use.
If you’re considering buying a prefilled pod kit for someone else, it’s key to pick out the right pod flavours for them. If they use disposable vapes, have a think about what flavours they tend to opt for, and find a prefilled pod flavour that sounds similar. It doesn’t have to be an exact match, just stay away from blends that they’ve don’t align with their preferences.
My Top Picks - Prefilled Pod Kits
Elf Bar Elfa Pro
The new Elf Bar Elfa Pro is compatible with Elfa Pro pods, available in 30 delicious flavours. This Elf Bar prefilled pod kit looks and feels just like an Elf Bar disposable, but the 500mAh rechargeable battery ensures it can be used again and again.
I tried out the Elfa Pro recently and found it to be far better than the original, with the QUAQ coil delivering a light and airy vape.
SKE Crystal Plus
The SKE Crystal Plus pod kit is perfect for fans of Crystal Bar disposables. Not only does it sport the same crystallised look, but you can choose from a delicious range of SKE Crystal Pod flavours.
I use the Crystal Plus myself and find that it replicates the experience of a disposable vape perfectly— it’s my go-to pod kit!
Intermediate Vape User Gifts
While prefilled pod kits are a great gateway into reusable vape kits, there are some limitations.
One of the only downsides of using a prefilled pod kit is that you’re limited to the pod flavours offered by the brand, which isn’t always the best option for intermediate users seeking a little more freedom. The perfect solution to this is a refillable pod kit. Also known as open-pod systems, these pod vape kits allow the user to top up the device with just about any e-liquid they choose.
This freedom means you’re able to fully customise your vape experience and try out flavour blends from multiple different vape juice brands. Refillable pod kits pair perfectly with nic salts and starter liquids. Nicotine salt e liquid is particularly suited for ex-smokers, as their potency allows for fast-acting relief that curbs cravings instantly.
I’m a huge fan of refillable pod kits and have tried out quite a few throughout my quit smoking journey, so I’ve picked out a couple of my favourites and highlighted which nic salts pair perfectly with them.
My Top Picks - Refillable Pod Kits
Smok Novo 4
Smok are known for their high-quality vape tech, and the Novo 4 is no exception. With up to 25W of power and an OLED screen, it’s the perfect gift for an intermediate vaper.
Plus, this pod kit comes with two mesh coils, so the user has everything they needed to get started. Just don’t forget to pick up some e-liquid— the Novo 4 pairs perfectly with Cigara Salt Bar Nic Salts.
Aspire Gotek X
The new Gotek X pod kit from Aspire is perfect for vape fans looking for something more unique. Its compact square shape and transparent shell make it an eye-catching choice.
Complete with advanced safety features and the freedom to choose between MTL and RDTL vaping, the Gotak X makes for an ideal gift. I recommend pairing this kit with Bar Series or Elfliq Nic Salts.
My Top Picks - Nic Salts
If you’re buying for someone who’s a fan of Elf Bar disposable vapes, then their Elfliq nic salt range is the perfect choice.
This Elf Bar vape juice is available in the same great flavours as their disposable vape range, and you can choose between multiple different nicotine strengths.
Cigara Salt Bar
Cigara Salts are made in-house by our expert mixologists, inspired by popular disposable vape flavours, making them perfect for those transitioning from disposables to something more sustainable.
Available in 26 different flavour profiles and multiple strength options, they make an ideal gift for those using a refillable pod kit.
Advanced Vape User Gifts
Are you shopping for someone that’s already well-versed in the world of vaping?
Perhaps you’re thinking of getting them an upgraded advanced vape kit, or want to stock them up with the best e-liquid for their device; I have just the thing. If you're not a vaper yourself and the idea of shopping for an advanced kit seems intimidating, worry not – I've got you covered.
You don’t need to be an expert in understanding terms such as “shortfills” and “sub ohm” to pick out a great gift for the advanced vaper in your life. To put it simply; advanced vape kits—also called sub ohm vape kits, or vape mods —are aimed at the advanced user; vapers who like a powerful, cloud-heavy Direct-To-Lung (DTL) vape, and who value customisation and control.
These kits are compatible with a type of e liquid known as shortfill, with bottles that contain extra space for users to add their own nicotine shots to achieve their desired strength. Check out my top advanced vape kit recommendation as well as some compatible shortfills.
My Top Picks - Sub Ohm Vape Kits
Geekvape Aegis L200 Legend 2
The Geekvape Aegis Legend 2 is a beast of a vape kit, perfect for cloud-chasers and those seeking an intense experience.
Shockproof, waterproof and built to last, the Legend 2 can provide up to 200W of power, making it one of the most impressive sub-ohm kits out there.
