Ashtrays are easy to become an afterthought. I mean, you're just going to let your cigar burn out in it anyway, right? However, you can have a lot of fun with your ashtrays. They're a great way to show your personality and get out of the box. Whether you want to go with something a fanciful and ornate or something a bit more understated and handcrafted, there are plenty of options to turn your ashtray into an extension of your interests and individual style. Not just that, they can make for some pretty damn good ashtrays as well. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Repurpose Trinkets You Have Around the House
If you’re a DIY smoker or a hobbyist who likes to take on projects around the house, why not make your own ashtray? Have an old, scratched up Led Zeppelin vinyl that you couldn’t play again even if you wanted to? Melt it down into a bowl to use as an ashtray! Maybe you have some old beechwood you brought back from a vacation that’s just been sitting around collecting dust. Carve into it and turn it into a rustic ashtray that gives a sense of adventure to your man cave.
Ashtrays for on the Go
If you’re looking for a different kind of ashtray, maybe it’s time to stop looking for a “tray.” The Xikar Ash Can doesn’t just change the shape of a traditional ashtray, but it gives you a different kind of functionality rather than just mixing up the aesthetic. One of its best selling points is that it’s the perfect shape to fit into most car cup holders, making it easier to smoke on the go. The lid keeps the mess contained and efficient for emptying out later one. Plus, it’s hard to go wrong with a stainless steel look like this.
Having a herf with some of your best cigar smoking friends? Break out the Stinky Ashtray to gather around and share stogies and stories. The bowl design with cigar holders make it so you can let the ashes fall right in and gives you an easy clean-up job after the party’s over.
Something Traditional, But With Personality
Alright, maybe you don’t want to go too far out of the norm. But maybe you want something a little flashier than just a plain black or white ashtray sitting on a table. There are plenty of cigar manufacturers creating some breathtaking and artistic ashtrays that will be eye grabbers in your home. The Nat Sherman Timeless Glass Ashtray exudes sophistication and looks, well, timeless. If you want to celebrate cigars’ Cuban roots, a painted design like the La Aroma De Cuba Classic Ashtray or a San Cristobal Square Ashtray can add a bit of history to your table while you smoke. If functionality is your main deal, Xixar strikes again with their Essence Ashtray which features a compartment to store your cigar cutter and lighter.
Whatever you’re looking for, there’s likely an ashtray to match. Check out Best Cigar Values’ wide array of ashtrays and find the one that’s perfect for you.
