GIFTS & ACCESSORIES

Let a Cuban Caddie Hold Your Cigar
The Cuban Caddie, from California-based K&S Products, won't carry your clubs, but it will provide a place for your cigar while you make that crucial putt. The Caddie consists of an aluminum tray, fastened to a hard-resin clamp, via a flexible, adjustable stem. The clamp opens up to 11/2 inches and the aluminum tray guarantees there'll be no melting plastic around your cigar. A modular clip will also be available, which will flip down and hold the cigar in the tray. Suggested retail price, $19.95. K&S Products, Diamond Bar, CA, Tel: (800) 278-7260. http://www.concentric.net/~Cubancad/
Humidor Takes New Shape
The Arch Humidor from Don Cray shuns the idea of the traditional box with its modern, graceful shape. Combining old-world craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology, the Arch's unique shape allows the humidification system to operate at maximum efficiency, creating a perfect micro-environment, ideal for storing up to 50 cigars. The Arch also utilizes a drawer system that allows for the storage of different makes and brands of cigars without mixing flavors. The cylindrical tubes provide full humidification of each individual cigar around its entire surface, without rotating. Available in a variety of exotic wood veneers with either 24k gold-plate or high-polished chrome metal finish. Don Cray, Danbury, CT, Tel: (888) 695-6789. http://www.fujipub.com/doncray/

Clear the Air of Tobacco Odors
The Lampe Berger, made in Paris, is a tabletop ornament designed to remove odors and replace them with subtle, yet complicated scents. Part fragrance lamp, part air cleanser, part sculpture, the Lampe Berger is a small, decorative, fluid-filled globe that is fitted with a wick and a burner. The wick is lit and allowed to burn for two minutes. The flame is then blown out and the lamp goes to work absorbing unpleasant odors using catalytic stones and replacing them with one of the more than twenty distinctive fragrances that have been developed. Lampe Berger also offers a neutral scent for the ultimate in subtlety, as well as an insect repelling scent. The Lampe Berger is available in Contemporary, Traditional, and Prestige models; about 80 design options in all. Lampe Berger, Highland Park, NJ, Tel: (800) 321-0020.
