3 Most Funny Ashtrays on Amazon – Perfect Gifts!

My friend smokes a lot – and I wanted to give him a gift for his birthday. That turned out to be harder than expected.

Ashtrays don’t have to be boring. That’s the thing. I was quite amazed by the number of cool ashtrays that can be found out there.

Therefore, I did quite a lot of research that I wanted to share with you.

This might not be related to anything about the environment. However, it’s a useful guide if you ever wanted to give someone a good laugh while they’re smoking a cigarette.

I guess that’s cool as well.

In a hurry? Here’s a summary of the top 3 Funny Ashtrays on Amazon

Yup – I went for the ashtray shaped like a grill. It’s affordable, cute, nice to have at a BBQ party, and quite large. In addition to that, it was a lot of positive reviews on Amazon.

I just had to pick it.

101: How to put together the funny barbeque ashtray

I’ll admit receiving this ashtray was a bit weird. You have to put it together yourself.

It’s like an IKEA furtniture.

On the flip side, that makes it even better when you finally succeed – and can start lightening up that cigarette. 🙂

This is a video that I actually received from the manufacturer themselves (such a nice customer service, isn’t it?):

It wasn’t that hard, was it? 🙂

Honorable mentions

I found the three ashtrays above to be the best, funniest and providing the best value for money. But we’re not all the same.

That’s why I wanted to showcase some of the other funny ashtrays out there that you might be interested in:

Why should you buy a Funny Ashtray?

I’m not saying you should. There are many reasons NOT to buy a funny ashtray from Amazon.

However, on certain occasions it might be a fitting gift:

– To the dad, that “doesn’t really want anything” for Christmas or his birthday.

– To your friend that never really was able to stop smoking cigarettes.

– Yourself. It’s a cool item to have when you have people over to your house.

Types of Funny Ashtrays

THE BIZARRE

An ashtray shaped as a barbeque grill?

What the h…?

There are quite a lot of bizarre-looking ashtrays out there. And these are my favorites. If they are made into looking like something that you don’t really think of as an ashtray, that might be super cool.

Other things that I’ve seen you can find ashtrays shaped as on Amazon:

– A gorilla mouth.
– A human mouth.
– A tortoise (this one is cool as the smoke comes out of the tortoiseshell)
– A hand.

THE ACTUAL FUNNY

Some of the ashtrays are actually super funny. That’s most of the time happening when you have some sort of slogan written on it.

Like this one for example:

THE UGLY

And then you have those who haven’t cared much about their design. As you saw previously in the article, it’s actually people selling an ashtray with a picture of Jesus. And inside it says: “Jesus hates it when you smoke”.

Damn.

I couldn’t come up with something uglier if I tried.

Key Features

  • Holding on to the ash. Some manufacturers sacrifice practicality for design. I’m not a fan of that.
  • Spacious. You HAVE to have a large ashtray. The small ones can’t really be used for anything.
  • Funny-looking. If people aren’t going “oh mate, that’s a cool ashtray” when they come to your house…you lost.

Ashtray Pricing (on Amazon)

You can get extremely cheap ashtrays if you buy them directly from Asia. However, that doesn’t guarantee them to be of high quality.

I’ve bought a couple of items for Alibaba myself. And even though the manufacturer “guarantee excellent quality”, it just doesn’t work. It will take 5 weeks for you to get the product. And when it arrives, it’s some cheap plastic stuff you wouldn’t want to use.

Been there, done that.

Between 5-10 USD: You’re barely finding any ashtrays in this price range. But if you do: don’t buy them. They’re of super bad quality – believe me.

Between 10-20 USD: In this price range, you will find about 90 % of all the ashtrays on Amazon. That indicates that this is the pricing level the sellers need to be at in order to make a small profit. Frankly, I would say that 80 % of them cost between 15 and 19,99 USD. They are often made out of high quality, are solid – and you can even trust that you will get a reply if you contact the seller on Amazon.

More than 20 USD: If you need to buy something for more than 20 USD in this niche, you’re doing something wrong. Seriously. Most of the ashtrays sold on Amazon can be bought for less than 5 USD in China. There’s no need for people to charge more than 19,99 for a funny-looking ashtray.

Tips

Do not buy anything directly from the manufacturers in Alibaba. It will take two months before you get what you bought. And it might very well be a defect item.

Look at the number of reviews before you buy anything. If a funny ashtray happens to have more than 20 reviews on Amazon, I can almost guarantee you that they’re not fake. That means its a legit product.

Only buy ashtrays where the consumers have uploaded pictures/videos on Amazon. My friend did buy a funny ashtray for his dad. When it arrived in the mailbox, it happened to be extremely small and could barely fit a cigarette.

Conclusion

If you want to buy an ashtray as a gift, I would recommend buying something funny. Buying a plane aluminum ashtray for Christmas?

Oh god…please don’t.

Of all the ashtrays in this article, I will really recommend the one that is shaped as a barbeque grill. It’s funny, creative, bizarre, spacious, and classy. Well…maybe not classy. But it’s one of the better ones that I’ve seen online. And that actually says a lot.

In 2018, about 14 % of the adult population in the US was smoking (according to CDC). That means that we’re not going to see a decline in ashtrays sold in the near future.

In addition to that, more and more people tend to smoke cannabis. That’s a trend that will probably not decline over the next couple of decades.

    Shotgun shelter as an ashtray 😀

    Who comes up with these ideas!

    I have to say I’d liked this blog from the beginning,,,but had no idea you would ever write about something like this. It’s crazy, yet quite cool. I’ll buy either the shotgun shelter or the barbeque thing for my dad 😉

    The nike ashtray wasn’t too funny.

    But I did indeed like the other ones. Do you know how long it takes to get them shipped from Amazon?

    I am living in Denmark so I have a feeling that I should probably look somewhere else. The problem is just that there isn’t really enough places in Denmark to buy cool ashtrays like this…and I really want to buy one for my dad

      I tried to buy something from Amazon while living in Norway.

      It took ages. I’m afraid you have to either go to the US and buy it…or find some local shop. 😉

    Hahaha, barbeque and shotgun ashtrays. Now I’ve seen it all.

    Also, it sort of gives meaning that this is placed on a website about eco-friendliness, sustainability and green living. AFter all…what’s the alternative to having an ashtray?

    That’s to throw the ash on the ground

      Solid point! 😉

      I agree. Ashtray > better than those who leave their cigarettes in nature.
