Cigars Make Great Gifts

It’s all happened to us at some point – the last-minute shopping rush. From packed parking lots to even more packed stores, doing last-minute holiday shopping is a high-stress event and one usually followed by a stiff drink at the bar. If you have a friend or family member who enjoys a cigar every now and then or cigars on a more regular basis, then we have some easy gift ideas for you. What’s even better is that you can stop by Cigars on Sixth, or your local store, and relax while you shop. What better way to enjoy some holiday cheer?

Buying Local

Walking into a cigar shop is truly the best way to buy cigars as a gift. Not only do you get a personal touch from the owner or employee, but also you can smell and sometimes sample the product. Cigar shops aren’t going to be crowded and it’s a unique atmosphere to experience if you haven’t shopped in one before. From the handsome boxes to the unique aromas, being able to see and smell the product is a special treat.

If you are buying for a family member and aren’t a smoker, simply turn it over to the store proprietor. You can name a price range you are comfortable with and trust that they will point you in the right direction. If you can provide any taste information (what they like to eat or drink, when they like to enjoy a cigar, etc), that will help the cigar shop select something your gift recipient will really enjoy. We are always happy to make recommendations for every price point and gift-buying need and while you are here you can take a tour of Colorado’s best cigar bar.

Buying Online

For those who may not be able to access a shop easily, there are certainly online options. Of course, be sure to check that delivery will happen well before the holiday. But you should find that most places can accommodate quick shipping unless you are purchasing a very rare or unusual cigar. You may wish to check out JR Cigar, but keep in mind that if you wish to order a more expensive cigar it’s best to shop local to make sure the integrity of the cigars were preserved in appropriate humidors over time.

However you purchase cigars this season, we hope you enjoy the process and know that whoever receives them will be delighted.
