The World’s Most Practical, Reasonably Priced Father’s Day Cigar Gift Guide

For as much crap as dads put up with, they ought to get more than one day a year to their honor.  

But they don’t.

Maybe Dad passed you his musical talent, or he’s who gave you your good looks. But if your father passed down his love of cigars to you – your debt runs deep.  

So how do you make the most of that one single, solitary day, and say thanks” to the most practical, reasonable guy you know? 

With something from The World’s Most Practical, Reasonably Priced Father’s Day Cigar Gift Guide. 

This year, we’re doing it a little differently from our Father’s Day Guides of the past – more of which can be seen here, here and here. 

So in this guide, there’s no price limit – but rather than be spendy for spendy’s sake and load up on luxury, we’re honoring Pops with more practical and reasonable cigar smoking deals – because that’s what he taught us to do.

The most practical gift of all? A Famous Smoke Shop gift card. Click and pick your own price – even just a few bucks would be the icing on top of a great gift.

Great deals are only half the story, howeverso we’ve put our heads together to get you the goods: gifts for dads with what we like to call, “commendable taste. Yet almost every one of these cigar gift sets will make his face light up for less than a c-note – and yes, you’d be forgiven for eyeballing two or three of these for yourself. 

Again: practical, and reasonably priced. We think that’s this year’s hassle-free formula to finding the best Father’s Day gift any cigar-smoking dad can get this year, and this guide still gives you time to get it done before June 21 rolls around. Happy hunting – and Happy Father’s Day!
