The Gift of CigarsNewer cigar smokers should enjoy trying a variety of different cigars, hoping to discover a favorite some day. Therefore, cigar sampler packs containing several different brands and/or sizes of cigars would be greatly appreciated. Sampler packs usually come in quantities of five cigars and up, so you do not have to spend a lot on a gift for a casual acquaintance, as opposed to a significant relative or friend. However, if you would like to splurge on a box of premium smokes for someone special, stick to a couple of top brands that are mild to medium in flavor. Macanudo is a top selling cigar in the U.S., and is made by the second largest cigar company in the world, Swedish Match/General Cigar. Montecristo is another widely recognized premium brand, made by the largest cigar company in the world, Imperial Tobacco/Altadis (although Altadis is the world's top cigar maker, General Cigar is market leader in the U.S. for premium cigars). Both of these brands are well known and respected in the world of cigars, and the new cigar smoker will never look out of place while smoking one of those prestigious stogies in a cigar bar, or in the company of other cigar smokers. Of course, if you know the favorite brand of a seasoned cigar smoker, stick to that brand to give as a gift.

Cigar Gift AccessoriesEvery aspiring and seasoned cigar connoisseur needs a humidor, cigar cutter, and windproof butane torch lighter. A book about cigars would also make a fine gift for the newer cigar smoker. Gifts for seasoned cigar smokers who already have many of these items could include cigar tubes, travel cases, and portable travel humidors. A personalized Colibri lighter engraved with the initials of the recipient would also make both a memorable and lasting gift. Other accessories may also be appropriate as gifts, depending on the recipient. These include ashtrays, special cigar breath cleansers, humidification devices, digital hygrometers, and even cigar apparel.
