From complete vape gift sets that are suited to beginners as well as more experienced vapers, through to mix & match e-liquid bundles, festive short fills, and super handy accessories - you’ll be sure to find the ideal Christmas vaping prezzies!


Vape Gifts for Smokers & New Vapers

When you’re buying a vape kit for a smoker who hasn’t vaped before (or doesn’t have much experience) there’s a few things to bear in mind.


It’s advisable to use a device that gives a similar experience to a cigarette.

Cigarettes have a tight draw that is quite different to some of the bigger “cloud machines” you’ll see in use.


For new vapers, it’s a good idea to choose a device that is easy to use.

As vapers gain more experience, some will gravitate to devices that need more technical expertise, but starter kits allow you to walk before you start running!


It’s usually a good idea to choose e-liquid which has a higher nicotine concentration, such as 1.8% or 1.2%.

This means vaping will better help alleviate nicotine cravings. Low nicotine strengths often lead to people vaping more in an attempt to fulfill nicotine cravings.

The simplest device available is a cigalike, which looks very similar to a cigarette. To use you just inhale, and the device does the rest - making it perfect for technophobes! Most people, however, choose to go for something that looks a bit different from a cigarette and gives the option to use different e-liquids.

One great option for new vapers are starter kits.

These are super simple to use, but improvements in technology means they produce enough vapour to satisfy most smoker’s cravings for nicotine.

Suggested E-Cig Kits for New Vapers

Hexa V2.0

Great Vape, Easy to Use

The Hexa V2.0 is currently our favourite closed pod system.

The closed pod means it comes with disposable pods, which makes it great for someone who wants to start vaping without the faff of fussing around with refilling devices. But what we love about it is the draw on it, which is closer to the experience of a real cigarette than other devices we have tried.

Uwell Caliburn G

Superb Flavour

In contrast to the Hexa V.2, this is an open system. This means you can use the device with a vast variety of e-liquids.

The Caliburn G has also gained a reputation as being the best pod system for flavours, so it’s a great choice for people who really care about taste.

Aspire PockeX

Staff Favourite, Comes with Free E-Liquid

The Aspire Pockex may be slightly older technology, but it retains huge popularity amongst vapers, both new and experienced. In fact, it’s also used by many of our staff.

This is a reliable device which produces an excellent vape.

Tip - it’s well worth purchasing a vape band (£1.00) to provide extra protection for the tank.

Gifts for Vapers & Experienced Vapers

Existing vapers very broadly fall into two groups. One group, known as cloud chasers, likes using large devices and blowing huge clouds of vapour, while the other group are happy to use smaller, more discrete devices.

Christmas Gift for Cloud Chasers

Vaporesso Gen X

The Vaporesso Gen X is created from aircraft grade aluminium which has gone through a cold forging process and precision CNC manufacturing to create a device which is strong, light and long lasting.The device provides up to 220 watts of power for massive clouds of vapour, and is powered by two 18650 batteries (not included) for an impressive battery capacity.

The Gen X comes with the option of DIY mode which will satisfy experienced users who like total control over their device, but also comes with easier modes for less techy vapers.

Voopoo Drag Max

The Voopoo Drag Max combines the compact design of a pod system with the power of a mod, with two 18650 batteries providing up to 170 watts of power. The body of the device fuses metal and leather for a striking design which is resistant to scratches and is comfortable to hold.

The device comes with a choice of modes, which includes RBA mode, making it suitable for advanced vapers who prefer to build their own coils.

Vaping Accessories and Stocking Fillers

Looking for some accessories to go with vapes, or for the vaper who is already satisfied with their kits? The K-Bag is a great idea for organising vape supplies while the Pebble Power Bank ensures they will never run out of power again!

E-Liquid Christmas Gifts

One thing every vaper needs is e-liquid. This short guide will help you choose...

10ml E-Liquid

10ml e-liquid such as Halo Vapour Co. (three for £9.99) is great for vapers who are looking to replicate the nicotine hit of a cigarette or is using starter kits or lower powered devices. 

Short Fills

Best for Clouds

For cloud chasers, you’ll want larger bottles of e-liquid (known as short fills). These don’t contain any nicotine, but are used with a seperate nicotine shot - but don’t worry, on E-Cigarette Direct you get a free nicotine shot with every short fill.

Popular brands on E-Cigarette Direct include Halo Short Fills, Pacha Mama and Doozy Vape.

For a festive e-liquid option, why not try Christmas Cake e-liquid from Cotton & Cable?

Stocking Fillers

If you can find out exactly what tank your family member or friend is using, a great idea for stocking fillers are coils. These are an essential part of the tank, but need to be changed every few weeks.

Other options include a stylish vape drip tip to go on the end of the tank (from £1.99) or a bubble vape glass to expand the capacity of the tank (from £3.99).

You Must Be Over 18 to Buy From E-cigarette Direct

Why do I have to prove my age?

To our website you look under 18.

So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.

You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.

Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.

On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!

Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).

(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )

How your data is used

We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)

Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.

Why do we check age?

As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.

This is against both our company policy and the law.

And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.

For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.

How Secure is e-Cigarette Direct?

Your privacy is important to us, and your personal information should remain just that - personal.

See the little green lock in the search bar? That’s our security certificate (SSL or secure socket layer to be precise). It encrypts all the information you enter so that no-one else can see it.

Information you provide for age verification is sent securely to Experian and no details of the checks are stored in our system. Ever.

If you have any concerns, please call our friendly customer services team on 01792 852843 (Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm).

For the techies: Our SSL certificate uses an sha256 hashing algorithm.
