Stocking Stuffers: The 12 Cigar Accessories of Christmas 2023
The Best Stocking Stuffer Cigar Accessories of Holiday 2023
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the lounge,
Not a smoker was stirring, not even the scrounge,
The stockings were hung by their humidors with care,
In hopes that cigar loot soon would be there!
‘Tis the season once again! By now, most of you have already seen our 2023 Holiday Cigar Gift Guide. It runs the full gamut of cigar gifts from samplers and gift sets, to humidors, and everything in between. Like last year, we’re shaking things up again with a refreshed guide—brimming full of new items—to stuff all the stockings with things that cigar lovers crave. We’re talking about the gear that can fit into a stocking: sleek lighters, handy travel cases, awesome multi-tools, and more. So, if you’re on the hunt for those perfect smaller-but-awesome gifts, you’re in the right place!
Mostly, we wanted to help you take the guess work out of what good ol’ Uncle Dale would like to see hanging by his humidor with care.
Below, you’ll find 12 top cigar stocking stuffer gifts from every price range. We hope this makes the nightmare of shopping just a little easier.
Have a safe and happy holiday from all of us here at Cigar Advisor and Famous Smoke Shop!
The Elie Bleu C4 Cubana, in a vibrant Havana White colorway, recalls classic design elements with a modern twist. Recalling the heyday of art deco elegance, this pocket-friendly double guillotine cutter uses surgical stainless-steel blades that will provide a precise cut each time—like a hot knife through butter. When only the best will do, reach for an Elie Bleu.
The Palio Tazza ashtray is perfect for any social gatherings where cigars are enjoyed—like backyard barbecues, weddings, or just herfing with your friends. Residing in the ‘Goldilocks zone’ with its 8 cigar grooves and deep ash bowl, the Palio Tazza ashtray is not too big for smoking solo, not too small for a crowd, but just right whether used indoors or out.

Ideal for cigar enthusiasts who love to enjoy their favorite smokes wherever they go, this set includes a high-quality butane torch lighter, a precision cigar cutter, and a durable hard-shell travel case.

With a sleek, coffin-shaped design and razor-sharp blades, the Lotus Viper is the perfect gift for fans of big ring cigars and unique cuts. Thanks to that V-shaped cut, you’ll unlock richer flavors and a boost in complexity from cutting deeper into the cigar’s head. Smoke your favorite blend in a new way, or simply use it to replace a dulling workhorse. It’s a win either way!
If MacGyver smoked cigars, this would be his lighter. With dual torches and built-in punch cutter and cigar poker accessories, you’ll always have the perfect punch, perfect light, and perfect draw no matter what the luck of the draw throws your way. Did we mention that all of these tools-in-one ring up under $22? No brainer indeed.
Producing form and function is no easy feat but leave it to Davidoff Zino to give a punch cutter a healthy dose of style. Its eye-catching design makes the Z9 an instant conversation piece, while sturdy, stainless steel construction and razor-sharp blade keep it punching your favorite cigars for decades to come. Bonus, it even fits on a key ring. But we’ll forgive you for thinking it’s too good to put it there!
Vector Icon III Prizm
Sitting heavy in the hand as well as on a tabletop, the eye-catching Vector Icon III boasts some serious horsepower. With four wind resistant torch flames, this chunky, but not clunky, tabletop lighter’s going to stand out and add some serious oomph to your next cigar session.
It might seem like black magic mischief at first, but we assure you the Xikar 360 works as advertised. As in, this revolutionary cigar cutter will clip the cap cleanly without using any squeezing or pinching. The Xikar 360 uses a rotary action that will consistently cut your cigars effortlessly and precisely. Featuring spring assisted cutting, the Xikar 360 can clip up to a 70 ring gauge and sports a finger stabilizer/carabiner hole for added convenience vaulting it to the top of must-have cigar accessory lists everywhere.
Xikar Multi-Tool Cigar Scissors
More useful to a cigar enthusiast than one of those fancy multitools—Xikar’s travel cigar scissors belong in any survival kit. Now with larger and more comfortable finger holes—and the ability to easily snip up to 54 ring smokes—and razor-sharp blades, the MTX also comes with a box opener/screwdriver, box nail remover, cigar poker/piercer, and a bottle opener. Lighten your load today and pick up the Xikar MTX Multitool Cigar Scissors.
Can we show you something in carbon fiber? This double shot cigar case from Lotus is top drawer for protecting your precious primos with carbon fiber strength. Better yet, you don’t see too many quality cases that hold cigars up to a whopping 70 ring. Well, this one does, and it comes at a very sensible price.
Oasis 4R Digital Hygrometer
Best known for their electronic humidifiers, Cigar Oasis also makes this 4R Gold digital hygrometer that tells it like it is with remarkable accuracy. Easy-to-read display; relative humidity and temperature readouts (Fahrenheit or Celsius); 3-day high/low readings; secure magnet mount, and the battery’s included. For the money, you won’t find a better unit.
