The holidays are coming and this is great opportunity to show a loved one how much you care and I bet so many of you have at least one acquaintance that’s smoking for years. As our society finally understood, smoking is not only bad for the individual, it’s nasty for all those around him. It’s responsible for so hundreds of thousands of lung or heart related fatalities across the globe and, besides this, it tends to make the person using them feel socially marginalized. If you want to make your friend smoker a nice gift this Christmas, forget about those fancy lighter and pen packs or that nice ashtray and help him cut down on his tobacco by giving him or her an electronic cigarette.
E-cigarettes are an ideal Christmas gift since they fit the budget perfectly and they are already packed in nice boxes. Some brands even have holiday special offers that include winter motif packaging and some extra accessories. You can even find tons of coupon codes online for savings up to 25% on each starter kit you buy.
However, before making your purchase you need to understand that e-cigarettes are different and if you want your friend to have a greater chance at quitting, it’s ideal to buy a kit that’s perfectly suited for his or her needs. We are going to try to give you a hand with the whole picking process with some suggestions based on our experience.
If your friend is a female and she is only smoking on social occasions, then we suggest going for a starter kit that includes only the basic stuff. The “Entree Kit” from Vapor Couture is the perfect gift in this case because it includes a stylish battery, 6 cartomizers, a charger and a disposable. The 1.2% nicotine strength is ideal for a person that smokes only a few cigarettes per week. If she smokes a few cigarettes each day, then probably the “L'Essentiel Kit” would be a better choice since it comes with two batteries and 10 flavor cartridges. We suggest going with the 1.2% nicotine for the first 5-pack of cartridges and with the 1.8% for the second and let her decide which one is perfect for her needs. If you want to go for something even fancier but pricier then the “Passeport Kit” is ideal for any woman with an active job and a heavy smoker.
If you lady friend is the kind of girl that often does stuff around the house and often amazes you with her skills then might we suggest going for a starter kit with a refillable tank. This way she could by her favorite flavor or brand of e-liquid separately and use the same device you bought over and over again. This is a much cheaper alternative than the one with the disposable cartomizers and more versatile. In this case, the “Valiant Kit” from Apollo ecigs or the “V2Pro Series 3” are excellent choices.
Finally, if your woman friend is young and uses electronic devices on a regular basis, then we suggest going for something modern and fancy that would make her stand out from the crowd and envied by her group of friends. In this case, a mechanical mod or an advanced personal vaporizer will always do the trick. The iTaste MPV from Innokin or the Vamo V5 are excellent AVP choices and they pack a lot of power and safety features. On the other hand, if you go for a mechanical mod then the Smoktech Magneto is perfect because it’s both cheap and dependable. Take into consideration that not all these devices come with a tank or clearomizer but they are all 510 threaded, and if you want to go the extra mile and buying such an accessory too, then the Aspire Nautilus can’t go wrong.
If you are looking for an ecig gift for a man, then depending on his age and general skills we have a couple of suggestions too. First of all, if you want to address someone older than 45 that’s not a heavy smoker then we suggest you go for a starter kit. Starter kits are divided in two categories: the ones with disposable cartridges and the ones with refillable clearomizers. If from your experience, the person you are buying the ecig for is snug and doesn’t like getting his hands dirty then a cig-a-like starter kit with replaceable flavor cartridges is best. In this case, V2 cigs has the perfect lineup of starter kits from the “Classic Kit” to the “V2 Standard Kit”. Other popular brands are Blu, Apollo and Greensmoke and they all have something to match your budget.
If the person is the type that constantly fixes stuff around the house, rolls on his own cigarettes or smokes the pipe then we suggest going for something fancy with a refillable tank. Here you can choose the V2 Pro Series 3, the Halo Triton, the Endeavor from Apollo and the Pro Starter Kit from VaporFi
If you plan to buy something for someone younger, then a mech mod or an advanced personal vaporizer work great. The Seven 22, the iTaste 134 MX-Z or the E-Power 3 are all great gifts for any guy trying to quit on tobacco. These devices have enough power to make them forget about those combustible analogs in no time.
This concludes our tips for products suitable for both men and women, but since there are hundreds of brands and hundreds of thousands of products out there, you can imagine that we can’t cover them all. However, if you have doubts about buying something for someone you love then fell free to contact us on our social network pages or here on our website and we will be more than glad to give you a suggestion.
