'Tis the season for last-minute Christmas shopping and trying to find the perfect gifts for friends, family, and loved ones. With so many options available when it comes to vaping, it can seem confusing when looking to pick up a vape kit, e-liquids, or vaping accessories as a gift for Christmas.
We've put together this vape gifts guide to offer complete expert guidance in selecting the best Christmas gifts when it comes to vaping to select the perfect present this year. Whether you're looking to help somebody quit smoking, or know someone who already vapes, we highlight everything you need to know about vaping. We've picked out the most popular vape kits, best-selling e-liquids, and vaping alternatives with incredible prices to select between the best vaping gifts available.
Summary: Starter vape kits and disposables make great Christmas gifts for both beginner and advanced vapers thanks to their simple design and excellent flavour production. Advanced vape kits are ideal for those with vaping experience, although can be harder to select the right product as a gift. When it comes to e-liquid, it's important to match the device being used and to select a flavour and nicotine strength enjoyed by those gifting to.
Why gift vaping products?
Vape kits and e-liquids can make a great Christmas present for those who currently vape, but they can also be a life-changing gift for those who currently smoke and want to kick the habit. By selecting the right vape gift, you can pick up the perfect stocking filler to help those you know and love to remain smoke-free or to help them switch from cigarettes to a healthier alternative with vaping.
Vape kits and e-liquids are a cheaper gift alternative, especially when compared to other gift ideas that you may already have, with many vape kits under £10 that come with a free e-liquid at Royal Flush Vape. Gifting a vape kit or vaping accessories can also be an unexpected and much-loved gift for Christmas to stock up on e-liquids, receive a new vape kit, or begin on a smoke-free journey.
Choosing the right vape present
It can seem daunting at first when trying to select the right vape kit for a friend or loved one at Christmas. Below we highlight the best devices for whoever you want to purchase for to ensure that you select the best product for a much-loved gift. Although we highlight the best vape kits for each type of vaper, preferences such as colour, size, and design will differ depending on the person, for this reason, we advise finding this out beforehand to truly optimise the gifting experience.
Vape gifts for smokers
If you're looking for a vape kit to help somebody quit smoking, we advise selecting a device that caters to higher-strength nicotine such as nic salts, whilst ensuring it is simple to use without any complicated buttons, settings, or navigation. Disposable vapes are the most simple alternative to smoking whilst offering stronger nicotine strengths, although prefilled pod kits offer the same great flavours whilst being more cost-effective in the long run.
Gifts for beginner vapers
Prefilled pod kits are also a great gift idea for beginner vapers. Thanks to simple designs, combined with prefilled pods, these vape kits are great for setting up straight out of the box. Prefilled pod kits offer the same great flavours found in disposable vapes, without having to replace the battery each time. However, for a more cost-effective gift overall, refillable vape kits provide the same great experience but with refillable pods to pair with preferred flavours and nicotine strengths.
Gifts for experienced vapers
Those with vaping experience may be the hardest people to gift when it comes to Christmas, however, this doesn't mean it's impossible. The most important thing to note with experienced vapers is that they have most likely found a vape kit and e-liquid combination that they prefer. This could include anything from disposables, pod kits, or sub ohm vape kits, which all vary in e-liquid strength, ratio, and flavours.
If you're looking to get a gift for an experienced vaper, we advise checking what they currently vape and finding something that matches their preference for the best possible gifting experience.
Starter Vape Kits
Starter vape kits are perfect for beginner vapers, although they also cater to experienced vapers as simple everyday devices with excellent flavour. Starter kits are available with both prefilled and refillable devices, with disposable vapes also being ideal for beginners. Below we provide further details about each type of starter vape kit to help you choose the best vape gift this Christmas.
Disposable vapes offer one of the simplest vaping products available. Prefilled with nic salt e-liquid, charged battery, and pre-built coil, disposables can be vaped straight out of the box. If you're looking to pick up a vape Christmas gift, you can't really go wrong with a disposable vape. These devices are great for beginner vapers, whilst being excellent devices for on-the-go vaping, even by the most experienced vapers.
Here at Royal Flush Vape we stock a wide range of disposable vapes available in a significant collection of brands and flavours which are available in 10mg and 20mg nicotine strength variations. Below we've hand-picked the best disposables for gifting this Christmas, although be sure to check out our disposable vape collection for even more flavours, brands, and deals.
Prefilled Vape Kits
Prefilled vape kits are one step beyond disposable vapes and offer much more value for money in the long run when compared to disposables. Thanks to offering simple designs, without over-complicated buttons, menus, or the need to refill, prefilled pod kits are an ideal gift for beginner vapers that can be vaped straight out of the box.
With a wide range of flavours available, these devices can be combined with the same great flavours found in disposable vapes, although being much more environmentally friendly and cost-effective thanks to the ability to recharge the battery instead of disposing of it.
Simple refillable pod kits
Refillable pod kits are available in a wide range of designs which can differ between vaping options such as power output, charging, activation modes, and display screens. If you're looking to pick up a refillable pod kit for a beginner vaper, you're best looking for a device that offers simplicity without additional screens or buttons to confuse the user. Below we highlight the best simple and refillable pod kits currently available to pick up the perfect Christmas gift.
Advanced vape kits
If you're looking to pick up a gift for an experienced vaper, you'll be pleased to know there's a wide range of pod kits and sub ohm vape kits with advanced settings built-in. These devices can make the perfect Christmas gift for those who have vaped for some time. However, it is important to mention that most experienced vapers tend to already have a set preference as they have tried and tested many setups over their time spent vaping.
For this reason, we advise checking what vape kits and e-liquids they prefer before picking up a vaping gift for them. Either way, we discuss advanced vape kits in further detail below to help you pick up the perfect present this year.
Sub ohm vape kits
Sub ohm vape kits use coils that are below 1.0ohm which offer a larger amount of vapour when compared to traditional pod kits. Alongside greater vapour production, the majority of sub ohm devices offer advanced vaping modes for additional customisation. These vape kits are great for advanced vapers or those who have been using a lower-powered device and looking for something a little more. Below we point out the best sub ohm vape kits for gifting this Christmas.
Advanced pod kits
Advanced pod kits offer everything you'll find in simple refillable devices but with more settings, display screens, and coil compatibility. Because there is no fine line between starter kits and advanced devices, it can often seem confusing when looking to purchase a pod kit as a Christmas gift. To make things much easier this year, we've highlighted the best-selling and customer favourite advanced pod kits below to ensure you pick the perfect present.
E-liquid stocking fillers
E-liquids can be a great budget-friendly stocking filler or added on to any vape kit as a Christmas gift. If you're unsure on which e-liquids to get, or need general guidance on the best e-liquid to gift this year, our guide below continues with a core focus on e-liquids to help you purchase the best Christmas present this year.
Choosing the right e-liquid gift
With so many e-liquids available, picking the right one as a gift can often seem overwhelming at first, especially with so many types, flavours, and strengths. No need to worry, we highlight below the main things to look out for when looking for the perfect e-liquid stocking filler this year.

Nicotine salts, also known as nic salts have grown in popularity since disposable vapes due to them using this type of nicotine. Offering faster absorption and a milder throat hit, nic salts offer bold and complex flavours most commonly available in 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg nicotine strength.
If you're looking to get a gift for a vaper who enjoys disposables, nic salts are ideally paired with lower-powered devices such as simple pod kits to get the optimal vaping experience. Higher strengths such as 20mg are great for smokers looking to quit cigarettes as the higher nicotine salt will satisfy cravings for longer whilst not being too harsh on the throat.
Before nic salts, e-liquids were generally only made with freebase nicotine. Although nicotine salts are now very popular, there are still many who prefer the flavours and throat hits that freebase nicotine has to offer. You may find that some experienced vapers prefer freebase e-liquids, although ex-smokers may also prefer this type of e-liquid as it offers a throat hit similar to cigarettes.
When it comes to purchasing freebase nicotine e-liquids as a gift, they are best paired with low-powered pod kits similar to nic salts. The strength and flavours really depend on the person purchasing for, therefore we would always recommend trying to find this out first before buying to ensure you get the perfect vaping gift.
Shortfill e-liquids differ to nic salts and freebase for many reasons. These e-liquids contain a higher Vegetable Glycerine (VG) ratio which makes the e-liquid thicker and created to suit coils under 1.0ohm. Also due to their size being over 10ml, they are not allowed to contain nicotine due to UK regulations, for this reason you would have to add a nicotine shot to introduce nicotine to a shortfill bottle.
Shortfill e-liquids are best paired with sub-ohm vape kits as they cater to the right coils and have enough power to heat up the vapour. Although it's possible to use these e-liquids in Mouth To Lung (MTL) pod kits, they could burn out the coil prematurely and may not offer the same vaping experience.
What are nicotine shots?
Available in 10ml bottles, nicotine shots contain concentrated and unflavoured nicotine which can be added to shortfill e-liquid bottles to make them contain nicotine. For example, if you add a 10ml nic shot with 18mg strength to a 50ml shortfill it will make the e-liquid 3mg nicotine strength. If you want to make a 100ml bottle the same it would require two nicotine shots of this strength.
Although vaping has been highlighted to be 95% safer than smoking by Public Health England (PHE) and the National Health Service (NHS), there are other smoke-free alternatives available here at Royal Flush Vape. One most notably increasing in popularity is nicotine pouches which we discuss in greater detail below.
Nicotine pouches offer a convenient way to enjoy nicotine without any vapour, odour, or tobacco. Pouches are to be placed between the upper lip and gum where they will gradually release nicotine and flavour to be absorbed for up to thirty minutes. Here at Royal Flush Vape, we stock a wide range of flavoured nicotine pouches with the latest collection from Tacja which is powered by leading vape manufacturer Elf Bar.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
A sub ohm vape is an electronic cigarette that uses a coil with a resistance below 1.0ohm. Sub ohm vape kits are most popular with regular and experienced vapers as the vape will run at higher wattage and often have more complicated settings in comparison to other vape kits.
There is no harm in using 50/50 e-liquids with a sub ohm coil and device, although the flavour may be a little harsher on the back of the throat when inhaling. As a general guide you should aim for a 70VG / 30PG ratio for sub ohming.
Pod kits are vape kits that consist of at least a battery and a pod. Pod kits are often more simple and user-friendly when compared to other devices available and are ideal for those new to vaping to start out with, although they are also great for any vaper.
Starter vape kits are ideal for smokers looking to quit smoking. Built with simplicity in mind, starter kits are easy to use without confusion to greater the chance of quitting cigarettes.
Shortfills are e-liquid bottles that have extra space to add nicotine shots to increase the strength of the flavour. Most commonly you will find either 50ml or 100ml shortfills, with each having 20% room spare for nicotine. For example, a 50ml shortfill will most likely be a 60ml bottle with 50ml e-liquid. On the other hand a 100ml shortfill with be a 120ml bottle filled with 100ml e-liquid.
Yes, you can use shortfill e-liquids without nicotine. If you decide not to add nicotine to a shortfill bottle you will get the same great flavour with 0mg nicotine. The only reason shortfill bottles have space for nic shots is to offer preference to the vaper.
