This is a discussion on Favorite type of cigar box within the Cigar Accessory Discussion forums, part of the The Cigar Lounges at Puff category; I don't think I've seen this question anywhere here. I know we all love the fun of getting a sweet ...
I'll go against the grain a little here. Even though its not the box your smoking, I really like the fancy ornate designed boxes. Think My Father Le Bijou, or Opus X, with the fancy latch on front, and artwork inside. Really looks classy. Makes me feel a little better about dropping bucks for a box when the box is nice looking too.
Since cigar boxes aren't cigars, I'm moving this to Cigar Accessories.
My personal favorites are the humidor quality boxes. Of these, one of the best was the Romeo y Julieta Anniversario boxes from a few years ago. Very nicely made and at least as good as any entry-level 20ct humidor I've seen. I still use one as a humidor in my office.
I tend to like the finished look on boxes, as it just gives the product more of a professional look when browsing through humidors at B&Ms.. That said, I typically won't be storing in boxes so it doesn't come down to a space issue for me. I like the finish on the Little Gomez boxes, they are rather nice in person.
Not exactly the same thing, but my local B&M has this sitting on a shelf and I like it. Technically it's a humidor, and far outside of what I'm willing to spend on it but it'd be a neat piece of a mancave. $400 if anyone wants it.
