A Modern Cigar for Your Modern Groomsmen

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

In search of a non-traditional gift for your cigar-smoking wedding party members? Want to give them something that’s outside of the norm (humidors, lighters, holders)? If you answered yes to these questions, we want to introduce you to a new friends of ours — paxvapor.


Ploom is a San Francisco based company that specializes in using modern technology to improve the smoking process. Through a low-temperature heating system, tobacco (and non-tobacco herbal blends) are blended into vapor. In other words, it heats the tobacco without burning it — which significantly limits the downsides. Confused? Check out this video:

Ploom has quickly developed a strong following, and has become a hit for bachelor parties and groomsman gifts. The Ploom Starter Kit makes for a perfect intro to the product… and it will only set you back $65. Take it from me, in the world of wedding party gifts, this is cheap. The Starter Kit includes the the hand-held “cigar” and your choice from six flavors. Flavors include rocket, cafe noir, orchard, gold (tobacco) and kick-ass mint and blue tea (non-tobacco). You can also throw in accessories. Ploom offers Zippo lighter fluid ($4.95) and mouthpiece refills ($4.95).

Puff Puff: Groomsmen Gift Ideas for Cigar Aficionados

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Is there a better time than a wedding to puff on a cigar with your best friends? I contend that there is not. This is especially true if you happen to be the one tying the knot. It’s no secret that men and cigar smoking go way back. Whether it’s at the golf course, a BBQ or over a game of poker, it’s always a special moment of comradery when sharing stogies and stories with the boys. It’s this sense of comradery that leads many grooms to select cigar related accessories when purchasing groomsmen gifts.
