One thing’s for sure we vapers are an easy bunch to buy gifts for at any time of the year whether it’s birthdays, Christmas or simply if you’re pushing that special someone to make the switch from smoking!
Make It A Cloudy Christmas With These Vaping Xmas Gifts Ideas
I mean let’s face it if you’re lucky enough to have a vaper in your life you’ll know just how ‘needy’ we are!
We always need more e-liquid – always need more coils and absolutely always need that shiny new mod – vape tank – RDA or snap back cap lol.
So if you’re looking at your ‘other half’s’ wish list and words like coils – watts – ohms and 3mg are a mystery to you never fear – here’s our guide to Christmas presents and all year round gifts to please any vaper!
And hey it’s not just our naughty but nice vaping list for folks who have no idea what they’re on about either – you’ll all find some great ideas from stocking fillers to gifts for the vaper that has everything!
Gifts For The Absolute Vaping Beginner
OK maybe you have a smoker in your life and you’re desperate to help them quit – what could be better than a vape kit as a present!
Christmas is a bit of a stressy time for many and maybe not the best few days to pack up smoking – you know what I mean lol.
But if the smoker in your life makes a resolution to quit every year that lasts until the twelfth chime – maybe a decent starter kit will get them cutting down or even quitting for good.
Of course, e-cigarette gifts aren’t just for Christmas!
Technology has come a long way this last couple of years and not only are the latest starter kits effective – they look great too.
You can also check out our best e cig kits for new vapers guide to help you make up your minds.
OK here’s a few of the best vaping starter kits we’ve found and we’ve updated this vaping Christmas Gift Guide for 2019/2020 – links to the full reviews included.
And BTW, pod kits and pod mods have come a long way since they first appeared on the scene.
And given they are perfect for brand new vapers, we’ve added a few newer and better performing set-ups to the list.
SMOKO VAPE E-Cigarette
We were gobsmacked at how well this little vape kit performed.
It’s about as simple as vaping gets – pop on the pre-filled cartridge and vape!
The flavours are great – the draw is tight and there’s a nice throat hit too.
It’s low-priced too, so would make a great stocking filler for the smoker who wants to quit.
Vapefly Galaxies MTL Kit
Designed specifically for the absolute vaping beginner, the Vapefly Galaxies MTL kit is one of the better starter kits we’ve reviewed this year.
It’s dead simple to use and the flavour from it will knock your socks off!
Indeed our reviewer was absolutely blown away by this one – looks cool too!

GeekVape Aegis Boost Pod Kit
Now this one has taken the vape scene by storm and little wonder!
As pod mods go, this one has it all.
Dead simple to use – can withstand water – dust and is shock proof and it looks awesome too.
Many are saying this is the best pod mod of 2019 so any vaper opening this one up on Christmas morning will be thrilled!

SMOK Nord Pod Kit
It’s been out for a little while but the original SMOK Nord pod kit is still holding its own!
Ideal for those looking to switch from smoking to vaping, it’s a cinch to use and gives great flavour.
It’s cheap as chips right now and comes in a wide range of snazzy colour combos so why not buy a few!
Read the review: Smok Nord Pod Kit Review – A Surprising Little Pod System!
Site admin Jonny really rates this one as an ideal vape kit to get smokers off the lit cigarettes.
It’s a good looker and so simple even the most techno-phobic smoker out there can get this one up and running in an instant!
We reckon this is one of the better pod kits/mods out there and one to definitely consider.

E-Liquid Gifts For the New Vapers
OK coming off the stinkies means the smoker is still going to need to get the nicotine delivered into their system.
It’s the nicotine that is addictive not the actual lit cigarette – so with that in mind they will need an e-liquid with a high level of nicotine.
We have a complete guide to all things e-liquid here where you can find out all you need to know about ratios and strengths.
Suffice it to say if you’re buying e-liquid for a new vaper fresh off the fags you’ll need to buy a higher level of nicotine so getting a 12mg or 18mg is my best advice.
I also suggest buying three different flavours to see which one they prefer with tobacco being an obvious choice!
There are literally millions of choices out there – bewildering even for us established vapers – however for the complete newbie I recommend checking out our friends over at Vapour.
Here’s three great choices for brand new vapers:
- Black Note – the best tobacco flavours bar none!
- Element Tobacconist – delicious flavoured tobacco
- VaporFi Grande Reserve – a delicious mix of flavours
NOTE: If you’re looking to buy e-liquid for a more established user it’s best to ask them outright exactly what brand/flavour and nicotine strength they like.
Gifts For The More Experienced Vaper
OK this one is going to be broken down into different sections but don’t worry I’ll try to make it as easy to understand as possible for those of you a little shall we say ‘in the dark!’
There’s more than a few different styles of vaping and indeed types of vaper so without getting a few facts from those who’ve been vaping a while – you may end up getting the wrong thing entirely!
Simply put there’s two distinct types of vaper – Mouth to Lung [MTL] and Direct to Lung [DTL].
You can read our full guide to both styles via the link above – but if you’re in any doubt ask them!
Generally speaking newer vapers are MTL which mimics smoking whilst the more established are those who love to blow clouds the DTL or sub ohm vapers.
I’ll go into gifts for those who like to build their own coils later lol.
So once you know what type of vaper you’re buying for read on and if nothing takes your fancy do a site search for either MTL or DTL and you’ll find something as we have a huge back library of reviews and amazing money off deals – advert over 😉
OK first up gifts for experienced vapers who still like an MTL vape.
Despite vaping for years both myself and Jonny still vape both ways – ooer haha – so here’s a few Christmas present ideas we’d be only too happy to find in our stockings 😉
BDvape Precisio MTL RTA
It looks like one of those eye-wateringly expensive high head tanks but the BDvape Precisio MTL RTA is at an extremely competitive price.
Not only does it look high class – the vape from this one is high class too.
If the vaper in your life likes to build his or her own tanks and loves a great vape this one comes highly recommended.
Exvape Expromizer V4 RTA
Another cracking little MTL tank ideal for the vaper in your life this Christmas.
Exvape marketed this as the best MTL vape ever and according to our extremely experienced reviewer, it comes very close to that indeed!
Once again this is for the more experienced vaper that can build his or her own decks!
Saying that, it is a very simple deck to build on so a great idea for someone wanting to make the step up.
Read the review: Exvape Expromizer V4 RTA Review – The MTL Killer?
Once again the following vape devices have been around awhile, but trust me they still stand up to scrutiny into today’s fast moving vape world – especially the JAC Vapour S22 😉
Jacvapour Series S22 Kit
I already own one of these outstanding kits so if you’re reading this Santa our Jonny has been a very good boy this year and deserves one lol.
This is without doubt one of the best vaping kits I’ve had the pleasure to use – great flavour – stylish and so simple to operate.
In fact while you’re on the website do have a look around – this is one of the best vaping manufacturers out there for kits and juices 😉
Checkout my full review of the Jacvapour Series S22 Kit
Aspire Zelos Starter Kit
Now this is a fabulous MTL set-up that features one of the best MTL tanks I’ve had the pleasure of using.
The Zelos is the mod that maxes out at 50watts – plenty of power for MTL vaping and a battery that will last forever!
But it’s the tank the MTL vaper will love – the Nautilus 2 is one of if not the best tank they’ll ever use – trust me on that 😉
A classy looking full kit easy on the eye and on the wallet and a gift they’ll absolutely adore.
BTW you can buy the tank – highly recommended – separately 😉

Gifts for the Sub Ohm Vaper
If you have a cloud chucking vaper in your life then you may know a lot more about their likes than most folk!
And I have no doubt they’ve either hinted or told you exactly what’s on their wish list lol.
I’ll get onto the tricky subject of RTAs and RDAs soon – but for now let’s look at the latest and top rated sub ohm tanks and high power mods every vaper would love to see coming out of Santa’s sack…
BTW these are the very latest ‘must haves’ according to the buzz on social media – buy them one of these and trust me the Christmas dinner [and probably Boxing Day too] washing up will be sorted 😉
Once again we’ve updated this Christmas vaping gift guide to include some of the best releases for 2019, and the others on the nice list STILL stand their ground and can probably be snapped up dead cheap 😉
GeekVape Aegis X Mod
It looks awesome – has a huge vibrant screen and is indestructible – what’s not to like!
Any vaper getting the new GeekVape Aegis X mod in his/her Christmas stocking will be thrilled to say the least.
Our reviewer described this as “awesome” – high praise indeed!
Trust me, buy the vaper in your life this for Christmas and you’ll totally make their day 🙂

Hellvape Fat Rabbit Sub Ohm Tank
It will definitely be a cloudy Christmas if you give the Hellvape Fat Rabbit Sub Ohm tank as an Xmas vape gift!
Ideal for the more experienced vaper and those who want to try their hand at sub ohm vaping.
It comes with a couple of stock coils in the box so everything you need to chuck a few clouds.
The flavour’s great too and definitely one of the most popular releases so far this year.
Read the review: Hellvape Fat Rabbit Sub Ohm Tank Review – Am I A Happy Vaping Bunny?
OK, the following Christmas gift ideas for vapers that sub-ohm are of course from last year.
However once again they really have and do stand the test of time!
Vaping Gifts For Vapers That Build!
Nope I don’t mean those who work on a building site 😉
If the vaper in your life has a collection of Action Man sized blue screwdrivers – a stash of cotton wool and spools of wire that pop open like a Jack-in-the-Box every time you open their ‘special drawer’ – then you’ll know what I mean!
OK this is for vapers that build their own coils and use an RDA [drippers] or RDTA/RTA which are like tanks but have DIY coils.
If that’s a little confusing or none of these I’ve picked out tickle your fancy – here’s our guide to some of the best RDA’s.
Hellvape Dead Rabbit V2 RDA
I reviewed this one and absolutely love it!
Great flavour and one of the easiest RDA’s you’ll ever find to build on so ideal for the new builder.
It comes in a wide range of colours and looks gorgeous.
Any more experienced vaper would be absolutely delighted to receive this dripper in their Christmas stocking!
Once again, these next few might be a little dated, but the 3 RDA’s below are still among the very best out there:
- Hellvape Dead Rabbit V1 – also by Heathen: absolutely awesome – full review
- VandyVape Mesh RDA : innovative and superb – full review
- Wotofo Recurve Dual RDA: great flavour and clouds – full review
OK now onto the RTAs – which are like tanks but you need to add your own coils.
GeekVape Zeus X RTA
I reckon this is the RTA release of the year – it is bloody awesome!
Building is simple as it gets but it’s the flavour from the GeekVape Zeus X RTA that stands out – it is pretty much flawless!
I said in my review that X marks the spot – as in the best out there for flavour and clouds.
Read the review: GeekVape Zeus X RTA Review – It Really IS A Cracking RTA
The trio I picked out last year are once again still holding their own!
- GeekVape Zeus RTA : 100% leak proof – perfect for Christmas parties! Full review
- Wotofo Serpent SMM RTA: superb flavour and clouds 5/5 – Full review
- Kaees Solomon RTA: My personal fave – great flavour and clouds – Full review
Gifts for the Squonker in Your Life!
I know – as soon as you get your head around all the vaping parlance – along comes squonking!
That word makes my son and grandson chuckle lol.
Anyway 2018/19 has seen the resurgence of squonking and as such all things ‘squonk’ are in big demand!
Right just when you thought squonking had gone away, 2019 saw more than a few new devices including a couple of VERY special ones I’ll talk about later…get your wallets ready for those lol.
Check out the full list of our best rated squonk mods.
Best Well Built and Simple To Use High Wattage Mod
There’s a consensus between a few of us on this one.
We reckon the Squid Industries Double Barrel V3 is one of the best releases this year.
Not only does it look incredible it’s so intuative to use it’s untrue.
One for the new vaper who wants a bit more power and definitely one for the experienced vaper – a real crowd or is that cloud pleaser 😉
A top all rounder for sure!
Budget Vaping Gifts
OK as we’ve already established we vapers are a needy bunch!
Here’s a few suggestions for little bits and bobs that really will mean the world!
Coils and Cotton
It’s best to find out the exact types they need – we can never have enough! We have put some to the test. You can take a look at the best vape cotton here.
There’s a plethora of coils out there from MTL – sub ohm – right up to wires and pre-made coils for the RDAs and RTAs.
Heaven Gifts has tons to choose from – but please do check exactly what they need first and of course shipping times for Xmas!
When it comes to cotton there’s again a ton to choose from – my preference is for Muj and Cotton Bacon V2– but again ask first and Amazon is a great place to buy your wicking from!
Best places to buy vape cotton and wire
Vaping Tool Kits
Umm OK a full vape tool kit can cost a little more than a stocking filler usually comes to – especially the superb full sets such as the Coil Master DIY V3 <- highly recommended BTW 😉
So if the Coilmaster DIY V3 Kit is a little too much then there are others that any vaper needs [lol] in their arsenal:
- Coilmaster DIY V3 Kit
- GeekVape Mini DIY Tool Kit
- Geekvape Screwdriver kit
- Vape Mat
I don’t own one single vape related t-shirt as they seem to send me L and I’m more a 3XL [big boned] but they seem to be all the rage among vapers!
As is the ubiquitous snap back cap lol – mine – like the t-shirts – are given away to local charity shops!
OK most of the larger vendors have sections selling their wares so be sure to check them out.
I did look for some decent snap back caps apart from a keep calm and vape one they were pretty uninspiring on Amazon at least – so let Google do the work for you 😉
If you are from the USA or don’t mind waiting for items to be shipped over then Vaprwear range is very interesting for the outdoor vape types!
A Vape Gift That’s A Little Different?
Here’s a couple of suggestions for the vaper that seems to have everything!
Electronic Pipes From ePuffer!
Now this is a bit different and ideal for let’s say the older vapers or indeed the vaping hipster in your life!
And just look at the beautiful presentation box they come in – very posh!
Hit the link and check out a wide range of vape pipes all look authentic and sure to make that pipe smoker in your life happy!
E-Cigars From ePuffer!
I really miss a good cigar – don’t tell anyone but I do treat myself to a good one at Christmas 😉
However, there are e-cigars out there and ePuffer has some of the best around.
There’s a few to choose from including the complete starter kit which looks great!
Expensive Christmas Gifts For Vapers
OK so far we’ve looked at Christmas presents for vapers that are pretty affordable – but what about if money is no object?
Yeah I know affordability is relative – but if you do want to push the boat out then these are definitely on the top of my Santa list – though if I’ve been a good boy this year is – as always – debatable lol.
Dovpo – Topside Dual Carbon Squonk Mod
The squonk mod that redefined squonking!
This is quite simply awesome looking and awesome as a performer it’s that simple.
ANY vaper receiving this one won’t be able to wipe the smile off their faces until well after 12th night!
Asmodus x Ultroner – Thor 2 DNA 75W Stabilised Wood
Now we are talking!
Behold the beauty of the stunning Asmodus x Ultroner – Thor 2 mod!
Er, it’s a little on the pricey side but hey surely the vaper in your life deserves a very special Christmas gift – after all they’ve quit smoking!
Powered by the awesome DNA 75w chip – this stabwood mod will probably make them burst into tears of joy ha!
Vaperz Cloud Hammer Of God V3
It’s big brash and powerful!
The Vaperz Cloud Hammer Of God mod is one for the more experienced vaper looking for a statement mod!
This big boy takes x4 18650 batteries delivering an eye-watering 8.4 volts of raw vaping power!
Trust me, this would be one popular Christmas present 😉
