Ultimate Bong Gift Guide

Buying for the smokers or vapers in your life can seem like a daunting and complicated task at the best of times, and verges on near impossible when you want to put something unique and special under the Christmas tree. With so much high tech gadgetry and a literal universe of options, brands, and accessories, let yourself find a moment of calm respite with another option: the simple, effective, and beautiful bong.


The bong’s ancient design and structure is not only soundly, perfectly effective for any smoker, but also lends itself to artistic and stylistic flourishes of sometimes breathtaking beauty. So, for all the smoking aesthetes on your list who prefer moments of quiet artistic reflection rather than trying to figure out how to download the right app to get that desktop vape to function, this gift guide is for you.


Priced low to high, take a look at the most popular bongs the world of smoking has to offer below, and we’ll explain what makes them so great:

The Liquid Ice Water Bong (£19.99) 

Made by Bushmaster, the Liquid Ice Water Bong is an ideal beginner’s bong. The price cannot be beat, but don’t assume for a second that this indicates anything less than perfect functionality. 


If you’re shopping for someone who may not know exactly what bong will work best, the Liquid Ice will soundly demonstrate exactly what a bong can offer.

Why is this bong so great?

It’s one thing to make a bong, but Bushmaster have cleverly integrated a few key design features into this model that make it completely stand out. For one, the base, shaped like a beaker, allows smoke to cover a larger surface area than it otherwise would. This means that smoke and water have more of a chance to mingle, creating a high level of filtration and a perfectly smooth drag. 


The main purpose of any bong is to cool your smoke before it’s inhaled, and Bushmaster have cleverly incorporated Ice Cooling Technology into the Liquid Ice’s design, and I promise it’s perfectly simple to take advantage of. The liquid situated in the shaft of the bong can be cooled by placing it in the freezer for about 20 minutes before use (of course, as with any glass/liquid combo, be careful not to leave it in there for any longer). The cooled liquid acts as another point of icy contact on the smoke’s journey to the mouthpiece, lowering its temperature and increasing the smoothness of the drag.


Oh, and did we mention that not only does this Ice Cooling Technology look beautiful, it also comes in a wide range of colours including purple, blue, green, and red. The prettiest bong for the prettiest price! If this is in your price range, check out Best Bongs Under £50 to find more info on these price range of bongs





The Vortex Gravity Bong (£64.99)

Don’t let the word ‘gravity’ confuse you, gravity bongs are just as perfectly simple as regular bongs, with the added bonus of using basic physics to help create a large, thick, smooth drag. Gravity filters smoke between two chambers, so instead of having to draw the smoke through the device with the power of your own lungs, gravity stockpiles the smoke, making the whole experience more comfortable, relaxing, and easier on the lungs. 


The Vortex Gravity Bong is ideal for someone who won’t take its scientific prowess for granted, and for someone craving a large but easy drag.

Why is this bong so great?

Where to start? Well, the Vortex holds the lofty title of being the first totally portable water-powered dry herb smoking system, so it can go where your smoker goes. It’s completely durable design is perfect for the bong user who likes a change of scenery every once in a while. 


As well, the Vortex’s design is patented and absolutely flawless, gaining it a reputation and esteem that is not easily reckoned with. Moreover, it’s appearance, rather than looking like something out of a stuffy science classroom, is strikingly gorgeous, and is available in a rainbow of colours including smoke, blue, and green.

The Maui Wowie (£70.95)

Not simply great because of it’s excellent name, the Maui Wowie is as gorgeous to look at as it is to use. With a long list of extra features, this dab rig is fun as well as excellently functional. 


The perfect mid-price bong for any collector of cultural artefacts who loves to celebrate nostalgia, the Maui Wowie plays homage to Cheech and Chong’s ‘Up in Smoke’ in a way that does not lead to tacky misrepresentation, but rather celebrates the duo in a pleasing and respectful way. Oh, and it works like a dream.

Why is this bong so great?

Made with premium hand-blown borosilicate glass for the body and thick quartz for the banger, this rig is sturdy and beautiful. But aside from materials, the Maui Wowie also contains a shotgun showerhead percolator as a way to get your smoke and water to jive together even more than they otherwise would, again creating an appealing visual effect and silky smooth drag. Available in black, green, and purple, the Maui Wowie is a looker to say the least.





 The Rocketship Bong by Snoop Dogg (£79.99 -149.99)

With a sleek and simple design, this is one piece will become the star of your special someone’s collection. POUNDS by Snoop Dogg has created the Rocketship, a classic bong designed by the man, myth, legend, himself. Simple and straightforward with a flair for style, the Rocketship perfectly matches the man himself. 


This mid priced bong is great for any fan of Snoop Dogg and bongs alike, and is probably best suited for the collector on your list who is keen to add something culturally worthy to their desk, bookshelf, or nightstand. But even if your collector is a novice to the world of bongs, this piece is so simple to use that they’ll master it in no time.

Why is this bong so great?

With a super thick base, you can probably drop this bong like it’s hot (although of course we would advise against this). Besides it’s thick base, the Rocketship comes with a diffused downstem, so as you inhale, your smoke is awashed in even more soothing water than it otherwise would be, creating a hit cool enough for Snoop. Also offering an ice pinch, the Rocketship allows for ice to be placed in the center of the tube for an even smoother experience. 






Easy to use, and super easy to maintain, the Rocketship’s linear shape makes it easy to disassemble and clean.Check out how to clean your bongs here. Available in black, clear, orange, and white, there’s a choice for everyone! With smoke this smooth and a bong that looks this good, there’s no need to quench your thirst with gin and juice.

The Marley Natural Smoked Beaker Bong (£164.99)

Known and esteemed for making high quality products, the Marley Natural Smoked Beaker Bong is, in a word, gorgeous. Thick, dark, smoky glass comprises the upper half and mouthpiece, wrapped in a ribbon of those telltale yellow/gold Marley shades, while his lion languidly relaxes on the bong’s base. And although hard to imagine, this bong is as functional as it is lovely to gaze upon. 


This is the perfect bong for anyone who understands and appreciates soundlessly perfect design, quality, and materials, along with having a reverence and spiritual appreciation for its history and culture. This bong might be reaching the lofty heights of a collector’s piece, but that does not indicate any lack of quality. 





Why is this bong so great?

Made of 5mm thick borosilicate glass and thickly bolstered in its circular beaker base, the Smoked Beaker Bong is as sturdy as it is sophisticated. This bong has an eight-slit percolator stem, widening the smoke’s surface area and cooling it further and giving your smoke every opportunity to become filtered and smooth. Oh, and there’s an ice notch too!

The Battleship Bong By Snoop Dogg POUNDS (£199.00)

Made to certainly separate the men from the boys, as it were, this bong means business. Built for both concentrate and dry herb use, this bong comes with all the bells, whistles, and intricacies possible for a bong to have. Again proving that Snoop Dogg knows exactly what’s what when it comes to bongs, the Battleship is a force to be reckoned with, and not for the faint of heart… or lung capacity.


This bong is ideal if you’re looking for a gift that will impress even the most experienced user, or the user who thinks they’ve had the best of the best. Worth every penny, the Battleship is durable while creating an intense drag, all while making sure your smoke gets as much filtration as possible.

Why is this bong so great?

With three levels of percolation, two turbines and a honeycomb, the smoke which reaches your lungs is only the purest and smoothest possible. The first point of contact where your smoke will meet the percolators is at the bottom turbine percolator. The honeycomb percolator comes next, filtering the smoke through a collection of small holes on the percolator disc. By allowing for a larger surface area, the honeycomb percolator creates numerous points for the smoke to travel through, creating an excellent drag. A third turbine completes the pathway, producing one last point of diffusion. And the end goal? The smoothest bong experience out there.






The Battleship Bong is available in all the colours you could possibly desire, including, Red, Black, white and clear. 

The Little Sista 7mm Bong (£259.00)

If you’re a bit of a vinyl snob like yours truly, you’ll appreciate why weight matters. Like that beautiful 180g record you’ve been longing for, the Little Sista 7mm Bong has a weight that is comforting, consoling, and pure quality. Manufactured by RooR Bongs, this heavyweight demonstrates that they certainly know what they’re doing. 


This bong is perfect for anyone who understands that class material equals renowned quality. So, in essence, it’s probably not for your beginner, but more so for you connoisseur, your lover of impeccable quality, someone that can tell the difference between good quality and spectacular quality.

Why is this bong so great?

Well, it’s durable, to say the least. That protective 7mm glass will ensure that you can take this bong to the depths and back and it will survive. Offering a glass beaker design, your smoke has plenty of space to mingle with water and reach maximum filtration. Available with a diffused downstem and ice notched so you can add ice cubes, this bong has everything you could ever possibly want.
