Designers know that the best pieces unite both form and function. After all, the most practical furnishing or accessory in the world will go unloved if we’re not happy to see it.
Glass and ceramic artists are proving the same is true for our favourite weed accessories. These talented creators offer a variety of beautiful smoking accessories that are works of art in their own right – and who doesn’t love functional artwork?
Here are a few of our favourite ways to take your smoke game to a new level this year and upgrade your equipment to suit your personality and your lifestyle.
Inspired design Canada Puffin
First up are these stunning Canadian-made smoking accessories from Canada Puffin. Designed with user experience, aesthetics and easy-cleaning in mind, Canada Puffin offers five different options for how you consume your product.
Crafted from borosilicate glass and Canadian maple wood, the accessories take inspiration from Canadian heritage and culture. Designed with the intention of reshaping the general public’s perception of smoking and smoke-ware, Canada Puffin products are a beautiful example of functional, usable art.
In addition to their five smoking devices Canada Puffin also offers beautiful solutions for preparing and storing your weed as well. Products come packaged in equally lovely red, satin lined gift boxes that make gifting these elegant smoking accessories a breeze.

Home of Red Eye Glass: West Coast Gifts
If you’re familiar with 420 culture you likely know Cheech and Chong. The Vancouver-based West Coast Gifts is the only 420 accessory brand to get the duo’s official stoner stamp of approval and that’s good enough for us! As Canada’s largest designer, manufacturer and distributor of award-winning smoking accessories, their wide variety of unique products includes eight of their own in-house designed brands.
West Coast Gifts founder Howard ‘H’ Franklin stumbled upon the magic of colour-changing glass pipes in the early 1990s while following American rock band The Grateful Dead across North America. Knowing he’d found something truly unique, ‘H’ created Red Eye Glass, now one of the most widely recognized glass pipe brands on the market.
And for those OG stoners, you’ll also find an exclusive Cheech and Chong collection of pipes, bongs, and other licensed merchandise available at westcoast.gifts and in a variety of dispensaries across North America.
