Personalized humidors add a touch of individuality to any cigar smoker’s set-up. Whether it is a gift or for personal enjoyment, this type of equipment is vital to protecting the flavor and condition of any number of cigars. Available in a range of sizes from a compact travel size to a full room layout, they give off a steady amount of moisture into the space. Ideally, the concentration should be in the 68-72% range in order to avoid tobacco beetles and ensure a desirable burn rate.
Exterior casings may be metal and plastic materials, but most commonly construction is of wood such as American Red Cedar, Honduran Mahogany, and Spanish Cedar. The latter is quite popular due to its ability to keep harmful beetles away and retain proper levels of dampness without warping.
From casual smokers to sophisticated connoisseurs, they are sure to enjoy receiving personalized humidors to store their prized collection. Serious Cigars utilizes a top notch laser engraver that allows for an endless amount of options. Sports team or company logos, monograms, family crests, or particular words of wisdom are just a few of the possibilities to consider displaying.

With the recipient in mind, these unique boxes are sure to make any celebration one to remember.

During the holiday season, the best way to treat coworkers who are tobacco enthusiasts is with corporate Christmas gift baskets that feature cigar samplers and accessories. Every year around the holidays, many stogie producers make their finest blends available in sampler packs. While sampler cigars were once considered a way to bundle inferior products together, this is no longer the case.

Sampler packs from major manufacturers, like Perdomo, Carlos Torano, Rocky Patel, Davidoff, L Atelier, CAO and Saint Luis Rey can fill out any corporate Christmas gift baskets, but they should be accompanied by other accessories. Humidifying is an important part of this smoking experience because this preserves the stick and encourages flavor development over time. Humidifiers, therefore, are an important piece every serious tobacco enthusiast should have. Fortunately, there are many to choose from, from simple sleeves that can humidify a single stogie to elegant wooden pieces that can store dozens of smokes. Davidoff and Savoy produce a number of Spanish cedar humidors that are both functional and beautiful.
Cigar cutters, draw enhancers and holders are all small items that aficionados can get great use from. Draw enhancers help open up a tight draw on a stogie, making it easier to smoke.

Ashtrays and lighters can also become treasured keepsakes, especially those that are designed like pieces of art. Porcelain ashtrays and flip-top lighters are nice to look at, but are also highly functional, like the best cigars and humidors on the market.

Having one or more cigar cases helps protect the quality and integrity of an aficionado’s preferred smokes. There are a number of choices and styles to choose from. Each style allows the consumer to protect their investment with class and elegance.
What are some types of cigar cases available?
The single containers are ideal for carrying just one cigar when out and about. Many smokers want to enjoy a fine after dinner or lunch stogie on the go. These smaller boxes often fit perfectly in a pocket. They safeguard the stogie against being crushed or broken while carrying it.
Other popular choices for cigar cases are those that are able to carry either two or three sticks. This is a great option when an aficionado will be out for the day, or perhaps would like to share a new find with a friend or colleague.
Larger cigar cases can carry ten, twenty, thirty, or even one hundred choice stogies. Maybe that many smokes are not needed for an evening on the town, but aficionados often find that their business often requires an extended stay out of town. Having the opportunity to enjoy one’s preferred stogies when they are away from home means carrying more with them during their travels. Larger containers and travel humidors are designed for instances such as this.
With the available options in decorative cigar cases, the aficionado can carry as many or few of his favorites along as he would like. This is an excellent way to keep the freshness and the flavor where it belongs.
