Smoking is considered one of the worst habits, but some people genuinely love to do it. Maybe you have a close relative or a best friend who enjoys nothing more than lighting up a cigar or cigarette. So what can you buy for a smoker for a birthday or special occasion? Buying gifts for someone with this habit can be difficult if you have never done it yourself. Follow this guide to help give you some inspiration and to assist you in finding a gift that they will love.
It would be difficult for anybody to smoke without a flame, so a lighter would be a useful and functional gift to give to them. But rather than getting them one from a drugstore, why not buy a silver or gold one and have it engraved with their name or initials. If the special occasion is a wedding anniversary, you could also have the date engraved too. Some engravers can also add an engraved image onto the body of the lighter. You could have a photo of a beloved pet or a family portrait that will bring a smile to their face each time they use it. This with add some sentiment to the gift and make it entirely personal to the person you are giving it to.
Box of cigars
A box of cigars is a classy and thoughtful gift that has an air of luxury about it. If your friend or family member has always wanted to try smoking cigars, this will be a greatly appreciated gift. These can be quite an expensive gift, so take the time to shop around to find the best deals from known brands. Also, consider flavoured cigars and cigarillos like those from Swisher Sweets. These may help your smoker enjoy smoking the cigars more, but always choose flavours they would like. You can display them in a smart wooden box, compact metal case or leather cigar tube that you could also get engraved if you wish. These will be dependent on the size of cigar you buy so always get the box or case last.
Ashtrays are another must have if you’re a smoker and keep ash and debris in one place. If the smoker in your life is currently using a cup or a plate to collect their ash, an ashtray will make a thoughtful and convenient gift. Novelty ashtrays, in particular, add some fun to their smoking ritual and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Try to choose one that relates to something else they like or an inside joke you share. Whether it’s cats, skulls or flowers, you are bound to find one they would like. You can even find portable ashtrays that can be carried around on a keychain that allows them to smoke on the go.
Hopefully, this guide will have given you an idea of a great present to buy for the smoker in your life. Like any gift, the more personal it is, the better. If you’re still unsure, ask for advice from other smokers and experts in tobacco and cigars for their recommendations.
