If you are thinking about giving a cigar to someone as a gift, you could be wondering if you should gift a little something extra with it. Luckily, there are lots of great gifts that pair perfectly with a cigar. These are a few that you can consider.
1. Cigar Lighter
Many people prefer to use a different type of lighter for lighting a cigar than what one would use when lighting a cigarette. In general, cigar lighters have a bigger and hotter flame, making it easier to get the cigar lit. However, the person you are gifting the cigar to might not have a cigar lighter to use. Luckily, you can find cigar lighters at various price ranges, depending on how much you are planning on spending on the gift. You can purchase a very simple cigar lighter from any cigar store or online, or you can buy a fancier model with your loved one's name or initials engraved on it. You could also look for a nice lighter case for this gift.
2. Liquor or Coffee
Many people find that cigars pair well with a nice drink. Consider buying a small bottle of a quality whiskey or scotch to gift to your loved one along with the cigar. You could also give a small whiskey glass, which you can place the cigar in when giving the gift. Another idea is to loosely tie the cigar to the liquor bottle with a nice ribbon. If your loved one does not drink, you could also consider giving him or her some coffee beans or a nice ground coffee since many people like to pair their cigars with a fresh cup of coffee instead.
3. Cigar Book
There are a ton of books out there about cigars. For someone who is a newbie to the world of cigar smoking, a general book with some information about the different types of cigars and their history can make a thoughtful gift that can help introduce your loved one to the world of cigars. For those who have a little more experience, you can find a more specialized cigar book.
As you can see, there are a ton of great gift ideas that are perfect for those who are into cigars. Giving cigars from a company like Blue Mountain Cigars can be a great gift on their own, but you can also pair them with other thoughtful items for the perfect set.
