Cigars as favors?

Recommended Posts

Is it okay to give cigars as favors for guys? I know that most of them don't smoke cigarettes but does it mean they will not smoke cigars either?

I was just thinking of giving pachminas for women and something manly for guys... so far I can only come up with cigars...

I think cigars are a good idea. I was considering having cigars rolled at the reception for the guys...and any girls that would be interested. I say go for it.

We gave cigars as favors for the guys -- and EVERYONE loved it! Including the girls -- who stole some puffs :-)

I just tied an organza bow around them in one of our colors (aqua) so they looked pretty, lol:-)

 

We bought ours and brought them down, but only b/c we had heard mixed things about getting good and "genuine" cuban cigars there... but it turned out our resort had a cigar shop and cigar bar and sold the exact same kind we brought...and for not much more price-wise.

Maybe check with your resort...?

(The mixed things we heard were about cigars sold outside the resorts... that some claim to be real cubans but aren't...etc etc...who knows if that's true or not though :-))

Also, I guess if you're in the U.S (we're in Canada) -- you can't buy Cuban cigars there I don't think...? (if that's what you want...) So maybe it's best to buy them in Mexico if you want Cuban...

 

Good luck!

I was thinking the same thing, cigars I think are a great manly gift! Something to do at the moment that bonds them together. I plan on buying them at the resort when we get there, a lot of them sell boxes of real cubans!

You should probably get something for the girls too...
We gave the girls lipgloss...but girls are SO much easier to buy gifts for, so ltst of options there :-)
(Maybe pashminas or jewellery or...?)

We are going to Cuba so we kinda feel we have to give out cigars! I mean we will be in CUBA! I also bought specialty labels just for cigars and I put our monogram on them , with the date. I will attach them to the cigars once we ge tthere. The labels go roght over the other label if you like and they can be slipped off when smoking! We will also be bringing some home to give out!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
