Winston's is here to help you find the right gift for the smoker in your life this Christmas. In that spirit here is a quick guide to aid in your holiday shopping.
For the Cigar Smoker
Cigars by the box: If you know a cigar fan who has a favorite stick (or just always smokes the same thing) buying a box of that cigar is always a safe bet.
- Cigar samplers: A good idea if you aren't certain of what your smoker likes or you know they like to play the field a little bit.
- Rare and limited cigars: Cigars like the Arturo Fuente Añejos or CAO Amazon Basins are only released at certain times and in limited quantities making them highly desirable to all cigar smokers.
- S.T. Dupont lighters: The utmost in French luxury smoking accessories, S.T. Dupont lighters are sure to be appreciated by the discerning aficionado.
- Matched Accessories From Brizard and Co.: Brizard and Co. make a line of cigar and lifestyle accessories featuring exotic woods and leathers. From an ostrich lighter to match their boots to a lighter, flask, ashtray, and money clip all in zebra wood Brizard has got it.
- Xikar XO cutters: This is the newest cutter from Xikar so there is a good chance your intended gift recipient does not have one yet. They are also very cool.
- Xikar gift sets: Cutter and lighter combos from Xikar are smart gifts for both the new smoker and the avid collector of cigar accessories.
- Savoy Executive Humidor: Even if they already have a humidor it probably is not this nice. These are some of the best humidors on the market and would make a welcome addition to any smoker's set up.
- Travel Humidors: Waterproof, crush proof, and generally all around resilient, these hard plastic, foam lined humidors are perfect for travel by plane, train, boat, or automobile.
- Ashtrays: Full sized ceramic or crystal ashtrays class up any smoking area and keep the ashes contained for easier cleanup.
For the Pipe Smoker
- High grade pipe: The ultimate addition to any pipe collection is a handmade one of a kind piece of functional art. These are the pipes that will make someone truly believe in Santa Claus.
- IM Corona pipe lighter: Matches or a Bic lighter might get the job done but nothing is quite so satisfying as heft and construction of an IM Corona. This is a lighter of choice for serious pipe smokers.
- Tinned Tobacco: These tins feature unique artwork and an extremely broad range of blends as well as a very long shelf life making them the best way to buy pipe tobacco as a gift. Don't be afraid of buying too many tins because they can be aged for decades.
- Pipe and Tobacco pouches: A good pipe deserves a good pouch and nothing feels as good to the touch as the soft leather of a high quality pipe pouch.
- Pipe tools, tampers, and other accoutrement: For someone who smokes a pipe regularly a pipe tool, or tamper, is a true necessity. Whether you are getting them an upgrade or an extra this will be appreciated. And the noble pipe cleaner can stuff a stocking like no other.
