Ladies and gentlemen, the day is almost upon us. The holiday that celebrates flowers more than any other. Chocolates, cards, the couple’s classic. Valentine’s Day.
You might be thinking to yourself, “Valentine’s Day is a joke” or “I’m single, why should I care?” All fair points. The international lover’s holiday has strayed away from romance toward gross consumerism over the last few decades and it can be a thorn in the side of single folk come mid-February. But buying something special or making the people you love homemade gifts never goes out of style, and treating yourself is even more important.
Here are some unique ways to surprise that special stoner in your life–even if it's you!
1. Bouquet of “Flowers”
Have someone special in your life that cares about always having tree? Want to make them feel loved on Valentine’s Day? Not a problem. Create your own custom flower bouquet. First, befriend a grower if you haven’t already so you can procure some pretty, cured top nugs still on the stem. Here’s where you can get creative. If you know a specific strain your special someone loves, get a bunch of that. If they’re more of an adventurous smoker, make each stem a different strain. Next, get a bouquet of roses or their favorite flower and remove enough of them to replace with your stems of nugs. Including a thoughtful card goes a long way as well. Pro Tip: take the flowers you removed and use the petals to make a path from the door to the gift (or the bedroom).
2. Box of Chocolates
This one has a few different directions you can take it. First off, a heart-shaped box of chocolates is a classic, traditional Valentine’s Day gift. If you’re going that route, why not spice it up a bit? One way you can do that is strategically replacing some of the candy with frosty nugs. They fit perfectly and are a fun surprise. If the stoner in your life also enjoys dabbing, gram jars will fit too! Plus, you get to eat some of the chocolates you remove. It’s a win-win. Something to smoke, plus munchies for later. Another way you can make that heart-shaped cliché a bit more unique is to replace the regular chocolates with chocolate edibles. Just make sure they don’t devour the whole box at once.
3. Infused Meal
Been honing your culinary creations lately? If you’re looking for a way to show off your newfound skills and show the person you care about how much they mean to you, chef it up in the kitchen and get them beyond baked with an infused meal. It’s really not as difficult as it sounds. Basically, all you need is a recipe, some flower, and a way to infuse your butter or oil. Infused meals are simple because the recipe doesn’t really change much. You just cook everything like you normally would, except the oil or butter you use is infused with THC. This is for the experienced stoner, as a fully infused meal can often lead to an intense, hours-long, couch lock high. But if all you plan to do later is cuddle up and watch Netflix anyway, you should be in the clear. Some ideas for infused meals: Baked Alaskan Thunderfuck, Bananas OG Foster, Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Kush, you know the vibes.
Now you’ve got some ideas for how to treat your loved ones that love to get high to a Valentine’s Day they’ll never forget. Don’t get caught trying to scrape something together at the last minute again this year. Feel free to use one (or all) of these ideas, and remember, whether you’re spending time with someone you love or showing yourself some love this Valentine’s Day, it’s important to go the extra mile.
