Finding the right gifts for men isn’t easy, even if the ones you’re giving them to are as close as brothers to you. So, what should a Generous Gus do?
The easiest way is to take a cue from their recent experiences. Giving something that reminds, helps or replaces is a good way to say ‘Hey, you matter to me so I’m updated with you.’
A plus point with gifts like these is that they don’t have to be expensive, since they’re relevant and meaningful (but they can still be geng). So, if you know someone who’s recently made the switch to vaping or is considering doing that, here are 5 options that won’t make your wallet cry.
A Vape Pen
A vape pen worth giving looks good, feels good and performs well.
Vape pens are great budget-friendly gifts which can support a decision to switch from smoking. They can help with the oral fixation, and the vapor produced is an adequate substitute for cigarette smoke (minus the smell and ash).
If you’re interested in giving one, take a look at the RELX Essential line. Any of these would be very appreciated, because they’re quite cost-effective even in the long run, and have a premium build that will last longer than the last relationship he had. This is the gift of a Super Smooth experience, and one that won’t easily be forgotten.
Any RELX device is easy to use even for people who’ve just made the switch. While none of them are expensive, you can add more value (and receive more appreciation) by giving an Essential Bundle, which has everything needed to start vaping, from the official website or on the RELX-approved online stores.
The available flavors of Fresh Red and Menthol Xtra will help ease his way into vaping. Not sure which one to get? Give both and let him choose which one he prefers.
An audio-book subscription
An audiobook subscription is a modern update to a classic hobby.
Audiobooks are a high-tech version of an old-school classic, much like vapes are to cigarettes. If you’d like to help your friend get current with what the world has to offer these days, this might be the right thing to give.
Another plus: audiobooks don’t take up much space at all, especially compared to their analog counterparts, and they also don’t come with the funky library smell that you sometimes get with an actual book. The same advantages come with vapes (much more compact and no smoke smell), too.
Subscription services for audiobooks offers are widespread, so your friend or relative can choose from his preferred genres and enjoy binge-listening whenever they feel like it (like the times when he doesn’t want to go yum cha with you because he feels like having a quiet time instead).
A Vape Charging Case
A vape charging case will keep his device always ready for action.
A vape pen is a good choice for someone who wants to switch from cigarettes, and a vape charging case makes sure that your friend or relative keeps it powered up the whole day without needing a cord or a charger.
Now, there isn’t a compatible portable and wireless case for each and every vape pen. But the ones that are there are designed to work well with it to keep the vape battery topped up, so he won’t get that potong stim feeling of losing power mid-puff.
Take the RELX Infinity Charging Case, for example. Available in two battery capacities (1500 mAh and 1000 mAh), each with its unique look, it is meant for use with the RELX Infinity line. Whichever model you choose to give, you can be assured that your gift is sleek yet durable, and very pocket-friendly too.
If your friend is still on the fence about switching from smoking, this could be the present that makes him take that leap. After all, it’s always fun to receive a shiny new gadget, so he’ll probably want the vape pen that matches it too.
A healthy-eating cookbook
Giving a cookbook can make having a healthy diet easier.
People who’ve made the switch to vape are often advised to match that decision with a change to a healthier diet. If your recipient is wants to DIY this by going hand-on in the kitchen, then a healthy-eating cookbook would make a great gift.
Whether the goal is general health or a specific diet such as Keto or South Beach, there are many cookbooks available which can satisfy that need. These can match different skill levels, so if your friend or relative is a kitchen newbie, a pro who grew up in a mamak shop or somewhere in between, you’re sure to find a cookbook to suit him.
The stove’s fire may be the only open flame that he needs in his life after the switch, so these budget-friendly gifts can help make sure that it’s used to make some amazing meals.
A movie streaming subscription
A movie streaming subscription can give much-needed entertainment and relaxation.
Deciding to switch from cigarettes can be tough to live up to. Give something that’ll help him distract himself so keeping his resolution gets a little bit easier. By this, we mean the gift of entertainment, specifically a movie streaming subscription.
Action? Comedy? Sports? Documentaries? Most of the popular local and foreign movies and series and many under-the-radar-but-still-great ones are available, so your friend or relative can relax and unwind with whatever he likes (even if it’s so cheesy, because why not?).
Ending a stressful day with a good movie onscreen and a vape pen in hand? That sounds like a super smooth gift anyone would love to receive. What a great way to end the day!
