Wedding bells are ringing. The question’s been popped, the venue is booked, and it’s full steam ahead down the aisle. Of all the minutiae that goes into wedding planning, groomsmen gifts are often placed on the backburner until D-day is staring you in the face. We’ve sold cigars, accessories, and gift sets to thousands of eager grooms over the years and always, we try to make the process personal, easy, and meaningful. Getting a gift for a guy is enough of a challenge, but deciding on a gift that will resonate with an entire group of your brothers and buddies can be even more daunting. The good news is, cigars and cigar accessories always go over great and there are plenty of options to match your budget.

Here is a list of the top cigar-related groomsmen gifts guaranteed to impress your pals. They won’t annihilate your pocketbook and you can get them well ahead of time, or when it’s getting down to the wire.

Cigar Assortments

Some of the best bonding that takes place between buddies is over premium cigars. You can never go wrong gifting your groomsmen with cigars. The best cigar samplers for groomsmen gifts include classic Dominican collections like the Ashton 5-Cigar Assortment ($49.99) or the Ashton 10-Cigar Sampler ($99.95). The brand is rich, complex, and blended by legendary cigar-maker Carlito Fuente from only the finest aged tobaccos. He also crafts ultra-rare samplers like the Fuente Fuente Opus X Lost City Assortment ($134.95), which isn’t for the groom on a limited budget, but it will certainly provoke a wide-eyed grin from the fellas who are lucky enough to be in your wedding party.

The most popular Nicaraguan cigar samplers include the La Aroma de Cuba/San Cristobal ’92-95’ Rated Assortment ($38.99), the Oliva 8-Cigar Assortment ($34.95), and the Padron 1964 Anniversary Sampler ($90.95), which is available in Natural and Maduro wrapper options.

Cigar Lighters

Guys love gadgets, there’s no question about it. And one of the most alluring gadgets in the universe is a cigar lighter. We carry an awesome variety of popular cigar lighters from Xikar, ST Dupont, Jetline, Colibri, and more. Some of our bestsellers include the Xikar Element ($37.95), Xikar Turismo Double Torch ($53.95), and the Xikar HP3 Triple Torch ($89.95). Sporty, sleek, and ultra-reliable, all Xikar lighters come with a lifetime warranty. Perfect ergonomics, fuel economy, and durability are integral components in every design.

Another top-selling but slightly pricier cigar lighter is the ST Dupont Maxi Jet Torch ($149.95). The look and feel of the Maxi Jet is seductive and tough to put down once you’ve got one in your hands.

Cigar Cutters

The next best accessory behind a reliable lighter is a razor-sharp cutter. Cigar cutters are also popular groomsmen gifts because they’re functional and they encourage camaraderie over fine cigars. There are a number of well-made, affordable models to consider from Colibri and Visol. Xikar also manufactures some of the bestselling cigar cutters like the Xi1 ($55.95). It’s locking steel blades and teardrop shape are now iconic in the world of premium cigars. A heavier-duty, more elaborate version is available called the Xikar Xi3 ($84.95 - $124.95), which can be ordered in a handful of exotic finishes. And, the ultra-popular Xikar VX V-Cutter ($46.95) is praised for the design of its innovative inverted blade, which never cracks the cap on a cigar.

Cigar Cases

Elegant, classy, and utilitarian, a nice leather cigar case is bound to come in handy. Taking a few smokes on the road without having to pull them out of a ziplock bag is nice. Your cigars are far better protected in a cigar case and they won’t sustain any damage if they’re in your coat pocket or a golf bag. Brands like Ashton and Visol make a number of sleek and stylish cigar cases. Prices range from around $20 to $100. Cigar cases are splendid gifts for groomsmen because it’s an item your buddies are less likely to buy for themselves.

Cigar Accessory Gift Sets

Every year, Xikar produces a handful of limited edition gift sets which include a matching lighter and cutter, such as the Xikar Rose Gold Gift Set ($179.95) with its heavy-duty Xi3 Cutter and a Vitara Double Torch in a shimmering rose gold finish. They can sell out fast, but new gift collections from Xikar come out every year. There’s also the Savoy Flask Gift Set, which includes a 3-Finger Leather Cigar Case, a Chrome Flask, and a Steel Cutter with a leather sleeve for $61.95. Or, check out the Lotus ‘Big Boy’ Gift Set for only ($44.95).

Flasks

Inexpensive and sometimes overlooked, for some a flask is a cliché gift for groomsmen. For others, it’s quite possibly the most appropriate item to show your pals gratitude. We carry a steady supply of flasks from Savoy. Chrome and leather finishes are available. Some editions, like the Savoy Crisscross Flask, feature a classy, textured pattern in the finish with room to engrave your buddies’ names or initials. Have your pals send you off into eternal wedded bliss with an old-school toast straight out of your breast pocket. Cheers!
