Giving Guide for Fathers Day Gifts

Giving Guide for Fathers Day Gifts

Welcome to another edition of Whiskey Wednesday! This week, we’re diving into fantastic gift ideas for Father’s Day. Whether you’re searching for the perfect present for the dad who has everything or a heartfelt gift for your bonus dad to show your appreciation, I’ve got you covered. I’ll help you find a gift that will make you Dad’s number one!

Dads, if you’re reading this, feel free to send this link to your kids with a little “Just a suggestion! 😊” note. And if your dad sent you this link, take a hint—he’s definitely interested in something here. To secure your spot as the favorite child this year, skip the usual screwdrivers, sockets, socks, and t-shirts. Instead, pull up a chair and let’s explore the best Smoke & Oak gifts you can buy for Dad in 2024.

Full transparency: 

All of the products listed in this article I do in fact own or have tried. All of the items here were purchased using my own money and I am not sponsored by the makers (wouldn’t say no if they asked though LOL) and nothing was given to me in return for adding them into this article. I just enjoy the products enough to recommend them.

The Gift for Cigars Lovers: 

If you are reading this, then it’s a great possibility that your “old man” enjoys a cigar every now and then. He may be the dad who enjoys one a month or even one or more a day.  Here are a few cigar ideas that will have him thinking about you every time he lights up. 

Sample Packs

With so many cigars out there it’s hard to pick just one cigar that your Dad may like and unless you know exactly what his flavor profile its easy to get lost when going to a humidor. Today, a lot of cigar brands offer a 3 or 5 pack sample of their top cigars. Some are different sizes while others offer different profiles. You can find sample packs at most brick-and-mortar shops or online at most retailers. 

A Bundle of Cigars

For the dad that enjoys a few cigars a week, an inexpensive bundle of cigars is a way to go. You can find low-cost good quality cigars in bundles of 20 or 25 for as low as $3.00 per stick. You can find a lot of brands that make a good bundle cigar at most shop but if you are interested in looking online, let me recommend some great lost cost options for you at Privada Cigar Club. Here you can find some great options of premium, long filler cigars that any dad would be happy to have. Privada Cigar Club

A Subscription

For the dad who not only enjoys cigars but also enjoys listening to podcasts in his down time while maybe even smoking a cigar, I’ve got you covered. The Honest Cigar Experience is a podcast based out of Tennessee. The host Chad and Tyler have a great time talking about everything to marriage, life, love, conspiracy theories as well as talk with and interview cigar brand owners such as John Huber of Crowned Heads, Matt Booth of Room 101 and Robert Caldwell of Caldwell Cigars to name a few. While you can find their podcast on all your listening platforms for free, you can sign your favorite guy up for their Patron Program. $10 a month gets you early access to episodes, bonus episodes, cigars, entered drawings, and access to their private group chat. I’ve been a supporter since they started, and it’s always been well worth it. You can find them on Instagram

The Gift for Whiskey Lovers: 

Every whiskey drinker has that one distillery that they go to more often than not. Those distilleries also tend to offer a range of expressions under their brand. Everything from their basic bottle to some brands having bottles that cost a couple of hundreds of dollars. My suggestion is to find out what your dad enjoys and then look for one of their limited or more high-end expressions. Doing this will show that you know what he likes and that you are willing to find something special for him to enjoy.

Accessories for both

Come on, who doesn’t like accessories? It doesn’t matter if you are into cars, guns, cigars, whiskey or any other hobby, finding new and fun accessories will make the experience so much more enjoyable. Below are a few accessories that I think would make any dad beam with joy to know their child got one of these for him on Father’s Day. 

Handmade accessories from XIII Knives

Want to impress dad with something special? XIII Knives makes the best cigar knife cutters on the market. They also make various ashtrays and fixed blade knives that would make the best father’s day gifts. Find them on Instagram

The Story Behind it All

I got my first knife when I was 10 years old, and I carried that knife everywhere. I don’t really recall a time when I didn’t have a knife on me, from that point on. I made my very first knife in 2017. I was given a piece of knife grade steel as a gift, the Christmas of 2016, and I didn’t want to mess it up. So, I practiced on some cheap tool steel. Needless to say, I caught the bug.

Soon after, I realized that I needed to come up with a name. In honor of my dad, I went with the number 13. It was part of his callsign in Vietnam. It quickly went from the number 13 to the Roman numeral XIII. So, XIII Knives was born.

My goal is to make the very best knives I can for people who get their hands dirty and need something reliable. I never wanted to make knives that just sit on a shelf and never get used. My knives are utilitarian – made to take abuse and keep a durable sharp edge in the process.

Accessories from Jeremy Siers

Jeremy Siers, a YouTube content creator who makes videos on an array of topics such as EDC, cigars, whiskey, guns, knives, as well as everyday home projects has an amazing line of merchandise that any cigar and whisky lover would be excited to have.  Side Note: Jeremy is the co-host of the Local Social Pub, a podcast style show on YouTube with Pravda’s Brian Desind. I highly recommend that you check it out. Jeremy also has his own line of cigars through Privada blended by AJ Fernandez.

Glashtray Solo

Where to Buy: Buy Here


For your cigar smokers out there, you know having a solid cigar ashtray for your favorite stick is a must. Well, if solid is what you’re going for….this is definitely the ashtray for you.

Introducing the Glashtray Solo!

Made from a 2 inch thick, 3.5 pound block of solid glass, this beast is made to be your cigar’s best friend or to be used as a blunt impact device if someone breaks into your house…lol. This bad boy has an oversized cigar rest big enough to gently cradle your favorite cigar, whether it is a lancero or a big ol’ 60 gauge monster you have to dislocate your jaw to smoke!

The ultimate statement piece to separate the men from the boys.

Handmade leather accessories from Bearded Moon

What father wouldn’t want high quality handmade leather accessories. Bearded Moon has you covered. From lighter covers, belts, bags, key chains, to wallets and leather coasters, Bearded Moon makes some of the best handmade leather goods that I’ve seen. I’ve purchased a bunch of items including the wallet I use daily as well as the custom two-sided table mat that I use for my photos. All of them are still holding up like the day I got them. You can find him on Instagram

The Cigar Dagger

What better way to help dad savor every puff from his favorite cigar that you just got him for daters day than with the best nub tool on the market. These little beauties allow the smoker to hold their cigar without burring their fingers so that that can get every last bit of cigar they can. I currently own about 15 different ones and use them on about every cigar that I smoke. I absolutely love this product.

Where to buy: Here

From their website

Cigar Dagger™️ was established in 2019 by Los Angeles based artists, designers and cigar enthusiasts who had noticed the cigar accessories industry was missing something. A functional and beautifully designed cigar nubber. Cigar Dagger did such a great job at reinventing the cigar nubber that it has since become synonymous with the object it represents. Cigar Dagger was also the very first company to make cigar nubbers with heads, from cigar smoking skulls, to dragons, kings, lions and everything in between. The addition of heads imbued Cigar Dagger creations with identity and character, elevating the humble cigar nubber into objets d’art that reflect the personality of its owner and add a little more flavor to the cigar smoking experience.

Cigar Dagger creations are handcrafted in our workshops using the finest materials including .925 sterling silver, brass, semi-precious gemstones, crystal, wood, bone, and more. Many of our designs feature hand cast elements and all of them are made to exacting standards, beautifully made and made to last.

Well, here you go! Hopefully I have made shopping for your dad a little easier this year and you are able to get him something that will enhance his love for the leave or oak just a little bit more. Remember, when the rest of the world is getting their dad the simple lighter or cutter, everyday socks or shirts, or helping add to the never-ending collection of screw drivers, socket set, or hammers, you were the one that went out of their way to find him something awesome this year. That’s what makes you number 1 lol! 

I hope you have enjoyed this article. Let us know in the comments, what was the best father’s day gift that you have been given. I would love to hear about it. As always, I want to thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Until the next Whiskey Wednesday, if you’re going to enjoy a little smoke & oak just remember, “Life’s too short, enjoy the good stuff”…. and do it responsibly!
