The struggle is real when it comes to Christmas shopping for the men in our lives. No matter how many times you ask them what they would like, you’re guaranteed to get a “nothing – I don’t need anything” in return. Thanks, guys, super helpful! But, whether it’s your dad, your brother, or your partner, we’re sure they deserve nothing but the best… So, “nothing” isn’t really going to cut it. But don’t worry, like Mrs Doubtfire said, help is on the way! We’ve put together a Candid Christmas Gift Guide to help you find the perfect present for your special someone.
So, deck the halls and grab the holly – tis the season to start shopping!

2. 200:20 CBD & CBG E-liquid by Canavape

Here, we have the perfect present for the vape enthusiasts in your life. Canavape e-liquid is a high strength vape juice, packed with both CBD and CBG. Experts believe that cannabinoids provide more substantial benefits when you use them together – a phenomenon known as the “entourage effect”. Canavape is an industry leader when it comes to boosting the benefits of CBD, as they were the first to include CBG in their products way back in 2015.
Each e-liquid is made using a 50/50 ratio of PG/VG, so you can use them in all electronic vaping devices. Therefore, there’s no need to worry if you’re not sure which vape your brother uses! You can also rest assured that the recipient of this gift is getting a premium quality product. Canavape were the first CBD vape brand to hit the EU market in 2014, so it’s safe to say that they know their stuff.
In addition, all Canavape products are made using pharmaceutically refined CBD, and they’re all tested by independent testing facilities. You can check out the lab results for each product for yourself.
Which Flavours Will You Choose?
As if that’s not appealing enough, there’s more. There are 5 delicious flavours to choose from:
- Blueberry: A slightly sweet, slightly tart berry flavour that we all know and love.
- Clear Scante: A unique blend that you won’t find elsewhere. Delicate grape flavours are paired with raspberries, a hint of mint, and a whisper of aniseed to create a taste sensation.
- Pink Lemonade: The taste of summer with a mix of summer berries and a refreshing citrus undertone.
- Slemberry: A recent addition to the collection. Enjoy specially selected Sicilian lemons, ripe strawberries and a secret berry blend.
- Vanilla Custard: A firm favourite that brings a hint of nostalgia with it. We love this delicate vanilla flavour with a subtle sweetness of custard.
