It’s that time of year when you need to start thinking about what to get the cigar lover in your life. You can always buy them a box of cigars, of course, but there are so many more great products out there, as well. Here’s a few of our favorites right now.
This may seem gimmicky at first glance, but we promise it isn’t. This specially designed cradle is so useful, as it isn’t usually easy to find a place to rest your cigar. You just attach CigarzUp to your beer bottle or can and you’re ready to go! It’s perfect for camping, fishing, relaxing at the pool or beach, or to use basically anywhere you go. It’s inexpensive and would make an excellent stocking stuffer! $11.89 from cigarzup.com.
Scrim by Hutch cigar cutter
These are some of the most beautifully designed cigar cutters we’ve ever seen. The best part is Rick “Hutch” Hutchings does custom orders, so if the cigar lover in your life is a huge fan of The Big Lebowski, for instance, Hutch will create a cigar cutter featuring images of The Dude or Walter. This guy is so good he even designed the knives and pistol grips for all three movies in The Expendables series. The cutters are on the pricey side, but you’re paying for the craftsmanship and quality. They start at $300 from xicar.com or scrimbyhutchstudio.com.
Davidoff Year of the Dog Travel Humidor
This would make a handsome gift for any cigar lover, as it is one of the nicest travel humidors we’ve ever seen. It holds up to eight cigars of all sizes and is specifically crafted to prevent the cigars from being crushed and to preserve the wrappers. It even maintains an ideal humidity. There are only 200 pieces available worldwide, so get this collectors’ piece now! $350 from davidoff.com.
Rocky Patel 20th Anniversary Lighter
Sure, you could just get a Bic lighter from a gas station, but then you’d look pretty silly lighting up a premium cigar with a little piece of plastic. Go for something classy, like this twin torch lighter from Rocky Patel that even has a fuel gauge window so you know when you’re running low. $69.99 from rockypatel.com.
Stinky Cigar Floor Ashtray
This ashtray is a favorite of ours because it has both an ashtray and a small table where you can set drinks and lighters. You can take it anywhere, and you’ll instantly have everything you need for a nice evening of smoking with a friend! It’s 24 inches tall, with four cigar stirrups on the 8-inch diameter bowl, and you can choose from three different colors. $104 from stinkycigar.com.
