I need to buy a humidor for cigars and I need advice...
A family member wants one for his birthday and I don't know much about them. I really need some advice. Does it matter if it's digital or analog? Help!!! I've read and talked to clerks and now, I'm even more in the dark.

I think you meant to write humidifier, OP?

Search the internet or a consumer website like 'Which Magazine',

Here's a link for example...

I'm not sure. The stores I've been to call them humidors and the web sites call them both, but they seem to be two different things. Are they? What is the difference?

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

How much you planning on spending?

I don't know anything about humidors I'm just curious...

I wonder if there are some popular cigar forums where you could get better advice....

Oops. I should have checked out the link first. No, not that kind of humidifer. I'm looking for a humidor for storing cigars. Maybe I better change the title.

It's for my sil's birthday. We're looking to spend around $150. We saw one in a high-end store in the city, but they closed up after Christmas. They were going to open in a different location, but didn't. Their other store, in Austin, doesn't carry the one I was going to buy. Now, I'm scrambling.

I do most of my shopping on Amazon.... Free shipping, good deals, and the reviews are really helpful & informative... What about something like this?

Check around on amazon.... Usually the products with lots of reviews and high ratings are usually pretty reliable!

I've been on their website and some others that have nice pieces. I think the prices are better on the companies websites, but I got one of my questions answered on Amazon. Thanks again, hon.

My pleasure... And if you want to pick him up any cigars for his new humidor check out Acid cigars (Acid is a brand name)... Particularly the Acid Kuba Kuba variety (blue label). They are affordable and very popular... Any local cigar shops by you should have them in stock.... My brother introduced them to me.... Mild/sweet tasting and very nice aroma.

Thank you so much, Ac! I'm going to blame this on "it's past bedtime", but I didn't think about ehow. I should have. It changed my mind on a couple of things. It's just I want a really good one for my sil. He's been a wonderful help to us this past year and he's a great husband and dad!

That is the one thing I'm going to chicken out of! I'll just get him a gift certificate/card for that one, but I'll pass the suggestion along!

That's the kind of store we had, but a different company. San Antonio is a little more than a day trip for me, but it might be possible for my sil. If I can't find what I want, I think we'll just give him the money to get what he wants. I hate doing that, though. Sometimes it seems like the giver just didn't want to take the time to choose the right gift. You know? He doesn't like to shop much, either.

Well sometimes its better to give the money than make the wrong choice, but you might find a local place online...

Either way he is real lucky to have such a thoughtful person in his life ;)

All a humidor is is a room where the temperature is kept at a comfortable level with a higher level of humidity to keep the tobacco from drying out. A cigar will never get stale in a humidor. That's all you need to know. Anything else is bells and whistles.

Like 35594931 said, he's lucky to have such a thoughtful person.

If you don't like the idea of money and he hasn't said exactly what he wants, what about cutting out a pic of a humidor and attaching it to his card with money and a note that you wanted to buy it yourself but after a lot of research you found there was a lot more to know about it than you are able to understand in a short time and want him to have what he wants so it wouldn't have to be returned.

He knows you and knows you are thoughtful. Going to get a gift is much less stressful than returning one and he'd know your heart was in it. Don't stress yourself. hf

That's what I was wondering about. My grandfather had one that he built himself and it seemed to work just fine for him. Too bad I don't know what happened to it after he passed away.

Hey, Nine's! I'm not stressing TOO much! Promise. You know me, always late for something and his b-day is this weekend! We were told our local store was going to re-open sometime in January, so we waited. They decided not to re-open. I'll sort it out, he'll still get his cheesecake!LOL I'm not too sure he knows much more than I do about them!

Thanks for your help, everyone. I've got to get some sleep, but if anyone has more advice, I'll check back tomorrow. He's just the best sil and I want to get the right one the first time. I can't be too bad at picking them out, we got him a small travel one for Christmas and his best friend has the same one!
