Cigars, Cigars and More Cigars:Image title

Whether it’s to celebrate a wedding or a new baby, cigars are one classic gift for the gents. Art of Cigars in El Dorado Hills is the place to go. The full-service cigar lounge features its own brand of hand-rolled cigars as well as premium brands. “We provide the only lounge in the area where you can smoke inside and enjoy a beer or glass of wine,” explains owner Eric Stanion. Being unable to smoke cigars in his own house, Eric had noticed there was no place for cigar lovers to go to enjoy their smoke indoors. “With the cold, rainy winters and hot, hot summers, having to always smoke outside can be tough,” he says. “What’s more, there are just not many places where guys can go to enjoy a cigar and hang out with really great people in a non-stress, non-bar environment. Yes, we are the ultimate ‘man cave’!” And with a 165-inch big-screen TV for watching sporting events and movies, Stanion is not exaggerating. He highly recommends the house-brand cigars, particularly the Cuban Round. “We have a torcedor (master roller), who is fantastic. We even have him come in and teach cigar-rolling classes on a regular basis. I’ll put his cigars up against almost any premium brand we carry.” For other gift ideas, Stanion says lighters and accessories are very popular, including the Alec Bradley Burner Lighter.

All in the Family

Combellack’s truly is a family affair. Started in 1898 by William Hill Combellack and currently owned by Gayle and Janis Combellack (William’s great grandchildren), the store sells everything for the modern man—from tuxedo rentals and Tommy Bahama to Woolrich and Kiche. The store’s roots haven’t been forgotten either; many of the original clothing lines carried (including Len and Pendleton) are still available, and customer service continues to be top-notch.
