35+ Top Cigar Smoker Gifts For Dad This Father’s Day

When it comes to great gifts for a herf-loving Dad, few things are welcomed more than a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ cigar. Let’s be honest. He taught you how to ride your bike, how to cast a fishing line, and shared a lifetime of his wisdom to ensure that your upbringing was far better than his. And if he passed down his love of premium tobacco in your coming of age, that debt runs especially deep. It’s time to return the favor.

Choices. Choices everywhere. Do you get Dad the obligatory tie? Another set of socket wrenches he already has? The eleventeenth Swiss Army knife he’ll probably just lose again?

You can do better than that. We’re here to make it easy.

Cigar Samplers & Gifts:

Alec Bradley Tempus Nicaragua Medius 6 Gift Box

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - alec bradley tempus medius 6 gift box at famous smoke shop

Alec Bradley’s classics have proven to be some of their best work. Tempus – the blend that put them on the map – is as reliable as it gets in their portfolio; buy it for Mr. Reliable, it’s even packaged in a gift box.

 

Drew Estate Traditional Sampler (2022)

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - drew estate traditional sampler at famous smoke shop

One of the newer iterations of this Drew Estate regular issue sampler, we think this is one of their best to date. Hits the sweet spot with 3 variations of Undercrown (that other Maduro is Undercrown 10 All Dekk’d Out), plus a Nica Rustica and Joya’s Connecticut hit.

 

Excalibur No.1 Sampler Pouch

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - hoyo excalibur no.1 sampler pouch at famous smoke shop

Excalibur is so synonymous with the term golf cigar that this Hoyo has both a green jacket and a reserved spot in the PGA Hall of Fame. If you’re playing a round with your old man this Father’s Day, do 3 things: pick up the beer cart tab, pay for his greens fees, and bring these cigars as your gift.

 

Perdomo Connoisseur Award Winning Cigar Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - perdomo award-winning sampler at famous smoke shop

This kit saves us the trouble of recommending the best Perdomo cigars for your gift basket…a batch of Nick’s most popular recipes, in their most endearing – and enduring – size, the Epicure. Boxed and ready to ship!

 

E.P. Carrillo Trilogy Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - e.p. carrillo trilogy sampler at famous smoke shop

The Best of the Best ofs: a gift-worthy presentation of EP Carrillo’s 3 Family Series cigars that have stood proudly atop the Top 25 podium. Although it’s two #1s and a #2, let’s be honest – the #2 is right up there. This really should cost a lot more, considering the pedigree.

 

Oliva Serie V Cigar Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - oliva serie v sampler at famous smoke shop

A perennial top performer, ratings earner, and general all-around big deal. Serie V is a great special occasion cigar. So if you give him these cigars as a gift, you best be prepared to hear Dad tell you about at least a couple nights of really good smoking.

 

“Taste Of Nicaragua” AJ Fernandez Collaboration Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - h. upmann aj fernandez collaboration sampler at famous smoke shop

Master blender and perennial tinkerer AJ Fernandez has popped the hood on these classics – and with a subtle tweak here to wrench a little more horsepower out of them. Now he has these classics running rich, smoking fuller. Sound like anybody you know? Reward him justly, with this AJ sampler.

 

Nicaraguan Sesenta Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - nicaraguan sesenta sampler at famous smoke shop

It’s Spanish for “sixty” – the ring gauge of each of the 4 cigars in this sampler. They’re the best JC Newman cigars not named Diamond Crown. Rich Tampa family legacy and top-notch Nicaraguan taste, Pops will likely be impressed by your appreciation for history.

 

Oliva Cigar Gift Set

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - oliva cigar gift set at famous smoke shop

Six Oliva cigars that smoke very well, plus our exclusive HumiJar that can’t be described as anything less than “extremely practical.” Excellent flavor-to-dollar ratio and borderline no-brainer – but don’t ask us, we’re biased.

 

San Cristobal Paradise Gift Set

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - san cristobal paradise gift set at famous smoke shop

What makes San Cristobal great? Don Pepin has a lot to do with it; so do those Nicaraguan tobaccos inside. The free torch lighter doesn’t hurt, either. A cigar gift set with a nice range of tastes, all rooted in the Cuban tradition.

 

Diamond Crown Royal Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - diamond crown sampler at famous smoke shop

Another of the super tippity-top shelf cigar gift samplers we’ve selected…a cigar is often viewed as a means of celebration, so a gift of Diamond Crown does show your true feelings of admiration – without having to admit them publicly or say them out loud (don’t make it awkward, not all of us are good at that).

 

Southern Draw 300 Hands Trio Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - southern draw 300 hands trio sampler at famous smoke shop

“Look for the helpers,” goes the saying that’s attributed to Mr. Rogers. Be the helper: every purchase of 300 Hands cigars includes a donation to the schooling and well-being of Nicaraguan families.

 

CAO Champions Collection

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - cao champions collection at famous smoke shop

It’s hard to argue with greatness – ten CAO cigars, presented in a travel case, each proudly boasting their 90-and-higher scores from “that” magazine. Everybody loves a winner, so why not give ’em as a gift?

 

House Of Romeo 8 Cigar Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - house of romeo 8-cigar sampler at famous smoke shop

The most famous family feud in all of classic literature, brought to life in this 8-cigar sampler. Montague is fiery, Capulet is smooth and forgiving; the rest of the cast adds plenty of depth.

 

Los Caidos Red And Blue Cigar Combo

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - los caidos red and blue cigar combo at famous smoke shop

A great cigar gift pick to recognize your favorite first responder. Twenty Aganorsa-made Toros – 10 Red, 10 Blue – plus a specially-made Torpedo. For every cigar sold, Los Caidos donates $1 to LifeofaRidetime.org, a non-profit that honors family members of fallen police officers & firefighters.

 

Ashton 5-Cigar Assortment

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - ashton 5-cigar assortment at famous smoke shop

This Ashton sampler has been a staple in their lineup for years…but there’s no reason to fix what ain’t broke. Starts easy with the creamy Classic, then leans on the gas as Ashton winds through all 5 gears up to the VSG’s strength and complexity. A big flavor upgrade like this – especially for short money – makes it a valuable addition to Dad’s humidor. 

 

Best Of Fuente Cigar Sampler

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - best of fuente sampler at famous smoke shop

Fuente is one of the first names in premium cigars – although it’s really their last name, but you get the point. Gift this six Arturo Fuente cigar collection, complete with Don Carlos, Chateaus and 858s…they’re the highlights among their bestselling blends.

 

Rocky Patel Vintage 12 Cigar Collection

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - rocky patel vintage sampler at famous smoke shop

To call your old man a “classic” is cliché; “relic” would just be flat-out unkind. “Vintage” has a nice ring to it, however, and Rocky’s got 4 great ones here: a 1990 Broadleaf Maduro, 1992 Sumatra, 1999’s Connecticut, and 2003 Cameroon. If your dad is used to kicking back with a bundle burn on any given day, trust us – he’ll welcome some cigars that look and smoke this good.

 

H. Upmann The Banker Mule Gift Set

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - h. upmann herman's batch mule gift set at famous smoke shop

Cigars and a cocktail? We’ll drink to that! Five H. Upmann Banker cigars plus a Mule mug (helpful hint: use vodka to make a Moscow Mule, use rum to make a Dark and Stormy) and toast one of the best ways to enjoy Father’s Day.

 

 

Cigar Humidor Boxes & Travel Cases:

Firebird Travel Humidor

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - firebird travel humidor at famous smoke shop

Cigars make an excellent companion for fishing or camping, so long as they get there in one piece. Enter these Firebird travel humis, which are as reliable as they are good looking (kind of like you). Multiple colors available.

 

Xikar 18 Count Travel Humidor

To be fair, it seems important to tell you that some of us actually use this travel case – some of us, almost every time we hit the road. Sturdy for sure, does its job, and yes, we’d be happy to get it again as a gift.

 

Old Glory Humidor (50-Count)

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - old glory 50-count humidor at famous smoke shop

A pick from our “Best Humidors” guide that we’ll repeat here: “Another of the most recommended humidors in our shop. Outside, it’s an image of the U.S. flag on weathered–look wood; inside, there’s plenty of storage for the price…this one’s a winner.”

 

Craftsman’s Bench La Salle Humidor

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - craftsmans bench la salle humidor at famous smoke shop

A great humidor for new cigar smokers, because (a) it’s not too big to manage and (b) your cigar collection probably hasn’t really grown much (yet). Add in the people who only smoke occasionally, as well as the people who just don’t have room for a large humidor – all good candidates for the La Salle. A small 10-20 stick stash is still worth putting in a proper box.

 

Craftsman’s Sonoma Humidor & Wine Gift Set

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - craftsmans bench sonoma humidor and wine gift set at famous smoke shop

Craftsmans’ Bench humidors can get pretty pricey, so the fact that you can get somebody into this kind of quality humidor at this price point is impressive. That it comes with wine tools, too? Add a bottle of your pops’ favorite vino and you’re gift-ready.

 

 

Cigar Torch Lighters:

Lotus Mariner Lighter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - lotus mariner lighter at famous smoke shop

What’s a pirate’s favorite letter? You think it’d be rrrr – but it be the c. And for the dad who lives the #SaltLife we present the Lotus Mariner. This woodgrain version evokes the teak decking of a vintage runabout; onboard are dual flame jets and two cigar punches that fold out like rudders. LOL, we’ve got dad jokes for days…

 

Vector Icon II Cigar Lighter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - vector icon II lighter at famous smoke shop

If your cigar-loving dad is the tech-y type, stop here. Place a finger on the Vector Icon II’s touch-sensitive screen, and three jets of flame come alive to toast your smoke. Rechargeable (via USB) battery is what gives it spark. Lots of firepower, but a safety feature prevents him from lighting his pocket on fire.

 

S.T. Dupont Mini Jet Space Alien Cigar Lighter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - s.t. dupont alien lighter at famous smoke shop

For starters, it’s ST Dupont – so it’s already heirloom worthy. As for the alien, we expect any gamer dad worth his Blips and Chitz will appreciate this more than you might expect. There are a few alien choices, all of them pixel-y, single flame and delightfully throwback. Pew-pew.

 

Lotus Duke Cigar Cutter-Lighter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - lotus duke cutter/lighter at famous smoke shop

Could it be – the perfect all-in-one smoking gift? Onboard the Duke is a very capable big-ring guillotine cutter; so are three powerful jets, angled to provide a pinpoint-accurate flame. Available in many colors, we chose to show red.

 

Xikar Verano Flat Flame Cigar Lighter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - xikar verano flat flame lighter at famous smoke shop

Xikar adds some flair to the flame game with Verano. The flame output is flat – which means its wider to ignite more surface area, but while modestly sipping butane the way a single jet might. Fuel efficiency FTW.

 

Vector Jetz Cigar Lighter w/ Bottle Opener

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - vector jetz lighter w/ bottle opener at famous smoke shop

What’s better than a cigar and a brew? An accessory that will take care of both. The Vector Jetz has a single torch flame for precision lights and comes with a flip-out bottle opener. It’s a perfect companion to Dad’s afternoon, when you’re all eventually plopped down by the firepit.

 

Zeus Table Torch & Big Boy Combo Gift Set

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - zeus torch/cutter combo at famous smoke shop

Well-made yet silly-cheap essential gear from Vertigo. Even if Pops is full-up on cigar tools, it wouldn’t hurt for him to have a new-in-the-gift box replacement waiting in the wings. Besides, it’s nice to have a spare that’s a different color or size (this Big Boy cuts 64s; many high-end cutters don’t) – and that table torch probably offers more flame than what he’s using.

 

 

Cigar Cutters & Accessories:

Xikar Spark Plug 11mm Cigar Punch

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - xikar spark plug punch at famous smoke shop

For our fellow car nuts, if a good part of your formative years was spent learning how to wrench on a car, skip the car wax and gift your favorite gearhead a new tool. Xikar’s Spark Plug punch is great for bigger ring gauges.

 

Xikar Xi2 Forest Camo Cigar Cutter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - xikar camo lighter at famous smoke shop

Xikar’s tried and true tech for cutting cigars, in limited-edition finishes. If you can’t see what we’re talking about, then the camouflage is obviously working. Could this be a new hunting buddy? Nylon-fiberglass composite Xi2 body, stainless steel blades cut up to 60RG.

 

Vertigo Big Kahuna Serrated Cigar Cutter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - vertigo big kahuna cutter at famous smoke shop

Anything called the Big Kahuna is dad material. This also happens to be a cigar cutter that accommodates up to 80RG cigars, and is serrated for more cutting power.

 

Famous Lotus Meteor Cigar Cutter

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - famous lotus meteor cutter at famous smoke shop

TikTok has told the world that “Dad-cool” is cargo shorts and New Balance sneakers – so how do we accessorize that? Skip the grill tools and go for this killer cutter: the Lotus Meteor not only carries the Famous Smoke name, but has a backstop so it’s pretty much impossible to screw up cutting your smoke. Fanny pack not included.

 

The Perfect Cigar Clip

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - perfect cigar clip at famous smoke shop

Another tool in our arsenal that we can recommend without hesitation, because yes – we really do use this pretty regularly. Clips to just about anything, stays put, doesn’t damage your cigar – which was all we wanted. Dad will want this, too.

 

 

Cigar Ashtrays:

HF Melamine Grid Ashtray

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - hf melamine grid ashtray at famous smoke shop

Cheap and deep: this HF Melamine Grid is a colorful alternative to the similarly styled metal ashtrays out there. The well is deep, the saddles are plentiful, it’s easy to clean, and impossible to tip over. All that extra space under the lid means fewer trips to empty it out. “Work smarter, not harder,” indeed.

 

Cigar Oasis Ash-Stay Ashtray

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - cigar oasis ash stay at famous smoke shop

Yes, the Ash-Stay looks like a UFO…but we don’t judge. Rotate the top to open four saddles for near-windproof smoking, and close them to keep the ashes and old cigar smell inside. Great for outdoors, and one of our best ashtray picks for boat owners.

 

Famous Barrel Ashtray

cigar advisor best father's day cigar gift guide - famous barrel ashtray at famous smoke shop

We liked this ashtray a lot, mostly because of the lid – keeps the mess down if and when things get windy. Looks pretty good with our name on it, too. Wish there was more of a backstory, but trust us – it’s useful. And isn’t that what makes a great gift?
