The Holiday Season is fast approaching, and you’re undoubtedly thinking about holiday gift ideas. Do you have a smoker in your life that’s trying to kick the habit? Or maybe you know someone that’s ready to upgrade and you’re trying to find the perfect device to help them ring in the New Year. Here are some e-cig and vaping gift ideas for that special person in your life:
E-Cig Gift Ideas for Novices
A couple of years ago we put together a list of e-cig gift ideas for beginners, and although many of those products are still perfect for someone with zero vaping experience, the following suggestions will help them take a leap forward a little bit faster. These products are still relatively simple to use, but they’ll offer a more satisfying experience, with more power and flexibility.
The Joyetech Ego One Kit is a long-lasting, easy-to-use setup that is ideal for beginners. It includes a high-capacity 2200mAh battery and a 2.5ml adjustable airflow tank. It comes with two types of replaceable heads (1.0 and 0.5 ohm) that are designed for different styles of vaping; perfect for experimentation. Although the Joyetech Ego One comes in a smaller 1100mAh version, the larger 2200mAh model offers twice as much battery life and a larger tank.
Similar to Joyetech Ego One (above), the Halo Tracer Mod includes a slightly larger 2600mAh battery, providing just a bit more battery life. The tank is also larger at 3.5ml, with adjustable airflow and it’s also compatible with several different replacement heads (1.2 and 0.5 ohm). Everything you need is included, it even comes with a free 30ml bottle of e-juice. It costs a bit more than the Ego One, but it will last longer before needing a refill or recharge.
Looking for something a little bit different, but still extremely easy to use? The Joyetech eGrip is an ultra compact device that has everything built inside; including the tank. It holds 3.6ml of e-juice and has 1500mAh of capacity, which should last most people all day – possibly two. And unlike the other products I’ve mentioned so far, it has adjustable wattage from 5 to 20W, allowing for more customization. Want more power and OLED screen? See the eGrip OLED →
Vape Gifts for Moderate Users
If you’re looking for an e-cig gift idea for someone with a bit of experience already, you probably want something more advanced than the products I’ve suggested so far. The following devices are in the 40-60W range and include variable voltage, variable wattage and OLED screens. These are a nice step forward in power, size and features compared to the previous suggestions.
You can purchase the Innokin Cool Fire 4 Mod separately, but if you’re shopping for a gift getting an entire kit is probably a better option. The mod includes a built-in 2000mAh battery, with variable voltage and wattage (up to 40W) to allow for maximum flexibility. It also includes an OLED screen, and the kit comes with an 4ml Innokin iSub Tank; compatible with various replacement coils. The Cool Fire 4 looks and performs great – sold in various colors.
The Kanger Subox Mini has been an extremely hot device this year, not only because of its sleek appearance, but because of it’s outstanding performance and features. Powered by a single 18650 battery (sold separately) it offers up to 50W of output and includes a 4.5ml Kanger Subtank Mini tank. It comes with 1.5 and 0.5 ohm coils, but numerous replacement head options are available giving it amazing flexibility. The kit includes everything but 18650 battery.
* SIMILAR ALTERNATIVE: The Kanger Subox Nano is a bit smaller, in additional colors
Sigelei is known for their large and powerful box mods, but the Sigelei Mini Book is designed to be compact and portable. It’s ideal for almost anyone (novice to advanced) and offers up to 40W of power with adjustable temperature control. In includes the new 2.5ml Sigelei X Tank, with fully adjustable airflow and easy-to-use top fill design. It comes with a standard 0.5 ohm coil and 0.1 ohm Ni200 nickel head for temp control mode. Just add one 18650 battery.

Gifts for Experienced Vapers
If you’re trying to find a gift for an experienced vaper (one year or longer), it can get a bit confusing since there are so many different products on the market. I’m going to suggest a few mid-range kits, since these should satisfy most enthusiasts. Even if they’re not as powerful as they prefer, they’ll still act as great backups that they can use in an emergency, or on-the-go.
The Eleaf iStick 60W Kit is just a bit more powerful than the mods I’ve recommended so far and also includes “temperature control” – technology that regulates the temperature of the coil to make vaping safer. You can run it up to 60W in the standard variable wattage mode, but it requires special nickel or titanium coils in temperature control mode, both of which are included with the 4.5ml Eleaf Melo 2 Tank. It includes everything except 18650 battery.
The Kanger Nebox is a brand new device similar to the Joyetech eGrip (above). Combining mod and tank into one, it’s also designed for simplicity, but the Nebox offers much more power (up to 60W) with the latest advancement in e-cig technology – temperature control. The Nebox holds an astounding 10ml of e-juice and is compatible with numerous replaceable Subtank heads – including nickel and titanium. Once again, just add one 18650 battery.

Throwing just a bit more power into the mix, the Aspire Odyssey Kit offers 70W of output and also incorporates temperature control. The kit includes the Aspire Pegasus Mod (chrome, slate or brass finish) and the highly popular Aspire Triton Sub-Ohm Tank. The tank provides 3.5ml of e-juice capacity, dual adjustable airflow and various replacement coil options. A great looking setup with outstanding performance and functionality, just add 18650 battery.

High-Powered Holiday Gifts
If you know your gift recipient is a serious vaper looking for a high-powered unit, there are a whole lot of choices available. These products aren’t typically sold as kits, so it will be up to the recipient to choose the appropriate tank or atomizer unit, and they’ll also need to add batteries.
