blu’s Christmas gift guide for vapers
Everyone wants to give the perfect gift at Christmas, but trying to find the ultimate present for the vaper in your life can be tricky. What kind of device would they want? Which flavours will they enjoy the most? And if you’re not a vaper yourself, what do all the different terms mean?
Luckily, blu is here to be your Santa’s helper, with our guide to Christmas shopping for the vaper in your life.
There are two main types of e-cigarette – open and closed system devices. The main difference is that open devices are topped up with e-liquid manually, whereas closed system ones use ready-filled pods, which come with e-liquid inside and effortlessly attach to the rest of the device.
The best way to check which e-cig your partner, friend or family member has – without ruining the festive surprise - is to look on the side of the device. If their blu e-cig has a clear window on the side, then it’s an open system e-cigarette. If the e-cigarette does not have a clear window on its side, it is a closed e-cig. Another way to tell them apart is to check whether the tank can be unscrewed or not.
Once you’ve deciphered this, you’re ready to choose some vape liquids! However, if your gift receiver doesn’t yet have a vape pen, or is looking for a new one, we can also help.
For those who prefer to vape with pods, our new closed device – blu 2.0 – is a great fit. A sleek and lightweight device that doesn't sacrifice on power, blu 2.0 features a battery that lasts all day (based on average consumer data), magnetic lock to securely hold your pod into place, and six different liquidpod flavours to choose from. For vapers who prefer an open device, our blu PRO device is ideal, with with a premium design and 10 e-liquid flavours on offer.
We have also just launched our disposable vape blu bar, which is available in selected retail outlets now! blu bar comes in six bold flavours including Watermelon Ice and Kiwi Passionfruit. Though not yet for sale on our website, it will be coming to blu.com in March.
E-liquids & liquidpods
Now we come to the really fun bit - choosing flavours! If they have a blu PRO open device, you will need to choose from our extensive range of fruity, minty, classic or sweet e-liquids. Likewise, if you’re shopping for someone with a blu 2.0 closed device then browse our blu 2.0 liquidpods selection.
Take a look at current old e-liquid bottles or liquipod packaging to determine the strength they prefer – either 9mg or 18mg – and see which flavours they typically buy.
All blu 2.0 pods are made with nicotine salts, so you don’t have to worry about checking whether they vape 'Intense' or not.
Want a festive flavoured Christmas vape juice (another name for e-liquid) to help get them in the mood? We would recommend our Blueberry Ice flavour, our Polar Menthol blu 2.0 pods, or our Mint Chocolate e-liquid, which always makes us think of yuletide treats.
Perhaps not the most glam of presents, our clearomiser is nevertheless a great gift for those blu PRO users who like to be stocked up. All devices break from time to time, but instead of them needing a whole new device, it may often be the case that your gift-receiver just needs a new part for their PRO. This item will ensure that their vaping experience lasts even longer.
FYI, no spare part is needed for the myblu or blu 2.0 devices.
