special eventstobacco gift ideas


Many tobacconists also carry special gift sets with an assortment of five cigars or more.


Now if you’re one of those people who like to shop well in advance of the special day that the gift is for then be sure to ask the cigar store clerk about how you should store the cigar until it’s time to give it to that special person. Cigars are not like normal gifts and you can’t just toss them in the top of a wardrobe or in the bottom draw of your desk till the important day roles around.

Cigars are actually quite fragile things and they need to be stored carefully - somewhere where the temperature is a nice humid 70 degrees - so talk to the store clerk about where you can hide it so that it won’t deteriorate before that special day.

An alternate route would be to purchase some nice accessories like a light or cutter, or a gift set of both. Make sure you tell the tobacconist that it is for a gift so they can help you choose a nice one. There are many cheap cutters and lighters that one might buy for themselves, but would not suffice as a gift.


And with those few tips you too can go forth and buy a cigar for that special person knowing that you will end up with something that he or she will get really enjoyment from when they smoke it.

Please do NOT encourage people to go into cigar shops, start squeezing cigars, and sticking them under their noses. These are EXTREMELY poor ideas and reflect some of the worst pet peeves of shop owners. You may want to rethink the basic premise and suggestions of this article.

Not only is the manhandling advice poor and really doesn't tell you anything about the cigar... I mean who can smell a good cigar???? But the fact you have a picture of a FAKE box of Cohibas with the "Glass Top" doesn't reflect well on the article.

*Editor's Note: Hey Guys, the "Glass Top" Cohibas image was a glitch in our CMS; the picture that was supposed to appear got replaced with the "Glass Top" that is for another article.

Great, now every time I go to the shop I have to worry about how many times someone who read this article decided to give a cigar I'm looking at a good squeeze to see if it's good or not... wow. Also, and I've noticed this many times before, it's fairly apparent that these articles don't go with the sentiment of the forums at all and it's almost like those writing the articles have never frequented the forums, nor does the writer expect the reader to ever read the forums... remember the boards that made this site? The sentiment among many who have been smoking cigars for a long time, at least what has shown up on the forums when the question has been asked countless times in regards to whether a long, slim smoke is preferred or a big fat 54+ RG cigar, the winner is usually those on the thinner side. Just something I've noticed and of course contrary to the authors of these articles, I'll leave my comments to not be the rule necessarily, but just a general sort of thing.
