The Surface 4/20 Gift Guide

A $2,000 ashtray and 15 other design objects that defy the stoner stereotype.

As marijuana sheds its illicit past, designers are bringing an elevated aesthetic to its consumption. In 2016, to mark the April 20 holiday, we invited a group of designers to reimagine marijuana packaging for a contemporary consumer. Last year, we put together a guide to the more elegant smoking accessories that double as objets d’art, and this year, we gave it an update.

From recognizable names like Tom Dixon and Joe Doucet to up-and-comers like Summerland and Sweetflag, more and more brands and designers are producing functional pieces for marijuana enthusiasts. Here are a few of our favorite stoner gifts.
