If you have a loved one who’s in love with cigars, then it’s pretty obvious that the best kind of gift that you can get them is one that’s related to cigars. You might be surprised to learn that there is a broad range of different gifts that you can give a loved one that loves cigars, beyond actual cigars.
Before buying your loved one anything, it’s a good idea to first research if they have what you are going to get them. If they do, then ask them if they want another one, before buying them anything.
Here are six meaningful gift ideas for someone who loves cigars:
A humidor is a box that’s used for storing cigars, which keeps them at the ideal humidity level and temperature. If cigars aren’t stored at the right level of humidity, then they can dry out. If they are exposed to too much humidity, then they can become damp. A dry or damp cigar will be unusable; while it is possible to rehydrate or dry out cigars respectively, the process can be very complex and can take a long time. The best way to keep cigars in good condition is to store them properly. Investing in one of the cigar industry’s best wooden humidors for your loved ones is guaranteed to impress them. In addition to getting your loved one a humidor, you could get them a humidistat, which is a device that measures a humidor’s humidity levels.
Naturally, cigars are a great gift to give a person who’s a fan of smoking them. If you are going to give cigars to your loved one as a gift, then it’s a good idea to invest in high-quality, expensive cigars. Cuban cigars are regarded as the world’s finest, so if you have the money and ability to, then you can buy some Cuban cigars for them. If you live in the United States, then there is a limit to how many Cuban cigars you can have imported into the country. If you live elsewhere, there probably isn’t.
A very good gift that you can give to your loved one is a custom-made ashtray set. You can either have their name carved into the ashtray or alternatively a pattern or something that they might like. It’s nearly always better to have custom ashtrays made out of wood because wooden ashtrays age better, and retain their charm as they get older. Metal ones can rust or show signs of wear. A wooden ashtray can be given to future generations as an heirloom. A metal one likely can’t.
Another great gift idea for a loved one who’s a fan of cigars is a custom-made Zippo lighter. Zippo lighters are the most expensive form of lighter that you can buy. If you don’t want to buy them a Zippo specifically, then you can still buy them a customized lighter, just from another company. If you are going to buy them a lighter, then it’s a good idea to also give them some lighter fluid to go with it. People very often discard lighters, even special ones, because they can’t find lighter fluid. You can order lighter fluid online. The lighter’s supplier might also be able to sell you some fluid.
A cigar cutter is an absolutely essential bit of equipment for any kind of cigar aficionado. It’s highly likely that your loved one already has a cigar cutter if they enjoy smoking them. Even if they do though, it can’t hurt to get them another. If you are going to get them another one then go out of your way to try and find them the highest quality one that you can. There are lots of cigar cutters on the market that have additional features, like built-in lighters and ashtrays. A gift like that could make your loved one’s day.
One last thing to consider is getting them whiskey. Whiskey is a drink that’s commonly consumed alongside cigars, because of its rich flavor. It might be possible to buy your loved one a whiskey and cigar set. If you can’t find a set but intend on buying them cigars as a gift, then whiskey’s a great accompaniment. If you are going to buy them whiskey then try to buy it from a brand that offers high-quality single malt. If you want really good quality whiskey, then buy it from artisan manufacturers, rather than mainstream brands.
If you have a loved one that likes to smoke cigars, then getting them a gift shouldn’t be especially difficult. You do need to make sure that they haven’t already got what you are going to get them, though. This shouldn’t be too difficult to find out, however, because you can just ask them.
