The Best Cigars to Give as Christmas Gifts
If you have a cigar lover in your life, there’s a chance that you’re wondering what the best cigars to give as christmas gifts are. Or maybe you’re just looking for a special stick to smoke as you celebrate the Holiday season and get ready to ring in the new year. Whatever the need, the Houston cigar experts at Stogies World Class Cigars have selected four of the best cigars to give as Christmas gifts to help you make the best choice this holiday season.
Note: Some of these cigars are limited edition, and when they’re gone, they’re gone! If you don’t want to miss out on the perfect cigar for Christmas, we recommend acting fast.
Montecristo Cincuenta Toro
One great strategy for giving gifts is to buy something that the recipient will love, but may not opt to buy themselves. For many smokers, a $35 stick doesn’t fit neatly into their cigar budgets. But as a gift, a cigar like the Montecristo Cincuenta Toro makes a big statement and is sure to please just about any lover of the leaf.
Crafted by some of the most skilled rollers in the industry, this premium medium-bodied cigar is a treat for the senses from head to foot. Made as a limited-time offering in honor of Tabacalera Garcia’s 50th anniversary, the Montecristo Cincuenta Toro features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper — a go-to for premium cigar makers — and quality craftsmanship that shines through even before the first draw. The flavor profile is nuanced and complex while still featuring many of the flavors cigars-lovers crave in a good stick, including spices, cocoa, cedar, and citrus.
Who to buy it for: The Montecristo Cincuenta Toro is a great cigar to buy as a christmas gift for a seasoned smoker who loves the classics but appreciates indulgence from time to time.
H. Upmann 175th Anniversary Churchill
One of Cigar Afficionado’s top cigars of 2019, the limited-edition H. Upmann 175th Anniversary Churchill is a stunning cigar that makes a strong impression fresh out of the wrapping paper and an even stronger impression once lit.
From the box to the band, the H. Upmann 175th anniversary is a truly beautiful cigar to give as a Christmas gift. This commemorative cigar is sure to impress (and maybe even surprise) even the heaviest cigar lovers. For this limited-edition release, famed cigar maker A.J. Fernández used a special fermentation process to bring out the best in its medio tiempo wrapper.
Serious and casual smokers alike will find a lot to love here, including inviting flavors of chocolate, caramel, and leather. This is a cigar to savor; the flavors grow more intense as the cigar burns, and the presentation lends itself to finer occasions and indulgent pairings. If you’re lucky enough to find this while it’s still in stock, we recommend acting quick.
Who to buy it for: Smokers with a taste for finer things and good drink. Beer lovers will get a lot of mileage out of this cigar, as it pairs perfectly with Brown Ales and Porters (Bourbon and Rum will also pair nicely).
Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City Piramide by Arturo Fuente
No list of cigars perfect for Christmas would be complete without the hard-to-find Fuente Fuente OpusX by Arturo Fuente. Some have even called these elusive sticks one of the Holy Grails of cigars, a title that goes beyond the name and rarity of the Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City.
The Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City features rare tobaccos grown at Chateau de la Fuente and aged for five years. The unusual conditions required to grow the leaf lend it a unique, full-bodied flavor featuring earth tones, spices, and raisins, alongside hints of caramel and almond. The Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City is a complex smoke with lots of reward for discerning palates.
If you’re looking for an impressive cigar to give as a gift for Christmas, the Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City by Arturo Fuente is guaranteed to put a smile on just about any cigar smoker’s face.
Who to buy it for: This ultra-premium cigar makes for a very impressive gift for your spouse, father in law, boss, or important clients. Even the cigar smoker who has everything may still be surprised by the Fuente Fuente OpusX Lost City.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V

This medium-bodied cigar caught the attention of the cigar world upon release with its bold, distinctive appearance and a unique blend of tobaccos from four distinct regions (Estelí, Condega, Jalapa and Ometepe) that took years to get just exactly perfect. But this stick is more than just a good story; the different components all come together for a complex, cohesive smoking experience that leaves a strong impression.
Best of all for serious smokers, this stick is built to burn for a long while. The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V is a perfect christmas cigar for people who prefer to take their time and appreciate subtlety.

Ashton VSG Spellbound
Looking for a cigar christmas gift for a smoker who doesn’t like much fuss? The Ashton VSG Spellbound is exactly what you’re looking for. For this fantastic cigar, Ashton saved the bells and whistles for the smoke itself. This is a rich, strong cigar that delivers big, complex flavors that any seasoned smoker is sure to love.
While the Ashton VSG Spellbound may lack some of the visual flash that some of the other cigars on this list possess, it more than lives up to its name once lit, greeting smokers with satisfying notes of cinnamon and citrus up front, gradually evolving to a profile reminiscent of sweet port. It’s complex, rewarding, and the kind of cigar that seasoned smokers will want to return to again and again.
