It has been said that a good cigar is like tasting a good wine; you smell it, you taste it, you look at it, you feel it, you can even hear it. It satisfies all the senses. Dignified men have indulged themselves in the art of cigar smoking for centuries. These men make sure that they only smoke the best cigars.

So, what does it take in order to retain the freshness of the tobacco in cigars? It all depends on how the cigars are stored. Cigars need a certain level of moist and humidity to sustain its quality and that’s when a humidor comes in. Our Personalized MVP Gold Humidor is made from great quality sturdy wood that will ensure that your cigars are well preserved.

Christopher Columbus was the man who introduced cigars to many parts of the world. Let’s commemorate his contribution to this art of cigar smoking on the upcoming Columbus Day this October. This shiny and well polished humidor is a perfect gift for those tobacco lovers on Columbus Day.  With customized prints of different logos, names and dates, this humidor would also be favoured as a gift for a father-in-law to be who enjoys an exquisite cigar every now and then.

And oh, the goodness doesn’t just end there. Our customized humidors come in other varieties of colours and designs.

3 Tips for Choosing the right Gifts

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Giving and receiving gifts are delightful both ways! Ponder this: How do you feel when you receive a gift like just what you had in mind? or something you’ve always wanted? or in the form of a hobby you have long forgotten? Its always a delight when you receive something that you can cherish or you can Use!Tip 1: Know the personality of the person. Is the person a fashionista? or is the person a practical person? A fashionable person would appreciate anything that is colorful or even stylish, But a practical person would appreciate a gift that can be used, if not literally at least it can be looked at every single day maybe like our pub signs or a pocket tool or even a set of cuff-links.Tip 2 : The ‘Personal Touch’ kinda guy/gal?Some of your friends would be touched by a gift that is hand made or if you took the extra step by personalizing a gift, maybe like engraving their initials on a certain item?Tip 3 : Know the Age of the Person. The age of the person you are giving the gift to plays a very important role on the type of gift you can present. You would think of giving something mature like a cigar set or even a wine glass set to a person middle aged and above and on the other hand maybe give something funky or sporty like a Poker Set, just like the Royal Prince William did to his Groomsmen (or it is rumored that way).Hope these tips will help you choose the right gifts for the right people in future!

Customized Humidors – where a cigar lover gets everything!

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

 

There was a time when a cigar lover would receive the ordinary cigar cutter or simple wooden humidor as a gift to make their day. Cigars itself have been popular to award these cigar aficionados! Little do we know that every cigar lover would already have a favorite cigar brand and stay loyal to it and have probably collected a dozen of cigar accessories from unlimited family members and friends. It’s time to realize that a cigar lover probably have other hobbies and fancies as well. This realization hit us and inspired us to create these customized cigar humidors. If you want to pick up a humidor for him, go ahead.. at least personalize it with something else he loves and decorate it with his name and date. Customized cigar humidors come in beautiful prints in an assortment of hobbies, sports or persona. Imagine a father who smokes cigars for fun and devotes his Sundays to golf.. why choose either or…?? Present him with a humidor designed in a vibrant golf print personalized with his name..! perfect isn’t it?? Well, now every cigar lover can get it all!!

Father in Law Gift – The Token of Respect & Promise

Vinatge Jazz Lunge Pub sign
As former president Bill Clinton rejoices for the upcoming wedding of dearest first daughter Chelsea Clinton with Marc Mezvinsky, we are here breaking our head to figure out what would be the ultimate father in law gift for a man of such deference. With Marc on his toes trying to please dear father in law, we can imagine that most son in laws (to be) break into cold sweats when dealing with “The” in law; especially if it matches up to the persona carried by our esteemed former president Bill Clinton.

Being in the spot light during his eight year presidency, spiced up with the hot sex scandal in between, it’s quite interesting that his hobbies received some sophisticated attention as well. It is quite well-known that he loved to read as well as play the saxophone. This rang a bell in our head as we recalled our Personalized Jazz Lounge Sign, which comes in either vintage or framed in dark cherry wood. We can imagine the proud smile in the handsome Clinton face as he receives this meaningful token from the groom.

Father in law gifts are a little tricky to choose, however, if you limit your options to gifts that are valuable in esteem, elegance and respect, you just won’t go wrong. It’s always a plus to pick out something of his hobby in order for the gift to be more thoughtful. My favourites are the exclusive putter set, Humidors, Money Clips, Swiss Army Knives, stud sets  and many more

Is it time to light a Cuban cigar?

Monday, May 4th, 2009

We have come a long way from the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban missile crisis days during the Kennedy administration to the present day Obama government policies. I remember in the 1960’s that Havana was called the Paris of the Caribbean and then came Fidel Castro. Dont you think it will be interesting to see what happens now with travel and money flowing in to Cuba?  What I would like to see is the US market open to a free flow of fine Cuban cigars! Ohh that would be wonderful! If only Castro gave Obama a box of cigars instead of his book!! But right now, we have to be happy with a great personalized pub sign of a wonderful Cuban - great look minus the aroma! To rub it in, I plan to give my groomsmen this pubsign as a groomsmen gift on my wedding! and much cheaper than a box of cigars but officially available!

Want to store your CIGARS? Have a good “SENSE OF HUMIDOR”

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Mark Twain once said, “If I cannot smoke in heaven, then I shall not go” . It takes more than a puff to savor a real good Cuban. From macho man Clint Eastwood in For a Few Dollars More to the sexy Demi Moore front cover , cigars are something to be romanced, savored and enjoyed.
But knowing how to keep a good cigar so that it lasts is an art form. Stories of cigars and cigar holding men and women conjure up a sense of luxury and history.

Cherry Wood Humidor

Aging is one of the most crucial aspects of a cigar’s flavor and aroma. All premium cigars are “aged” for about 6-8 weeks so they can dry properly and mature, which also affects their burn and draw. But by letting your new cigars “age-up” in your humidor, you can actually enhance their body and character.
The Cherry Wood Humidor is a high quality but affordable humidor for a groomsmen gift, best man or father’s day gift. Long-term aging under the “ideal 70/70″ conditions (70 degrees temp/70% humidity) will, allow the cigars to age gracefully, which can often help you better appreciate the “complexity” and subtleties of the cigar’s particular blend. You can order your own personalized humidor at Groomsmen.com
