Do you go with the engraved lighter or the golf ball key chain? Here are a few more unique suggestions.

It’s never fun to bust out a nice cigar only to realize you’ve got a lighter but forgot your cutter — or vice versa. The Blazer Optimus Cigar Torch Lighter & Guillotine Cutter ($36) prevents this unfortunate circumstance by combining a guillotine cutter and lighter in one compact package, with a wind-resistant blue flame and a magnetic cutter lock. Just don’t forget it, lest you wind up completely screwed.
Whether you’re a professional heli-skier or a geek stuck down in the IT department, you should always have a good multi-tool in your pocket. But if the thought of said tool weighing down your pants all day doesn’t appeal, maybe it’s time to get yourself something a little less bulky. The Leatherman Skeletoolis an ultra-light pocket-survival-tool that includes just the essentials — a super sharp knife, full-size pliers with wire cutters, an interchangeable screwdriver, and a carabiner clip/bottle opener. The Skeletool keeps weight and volume to a minimum without sacrificing quality or functionality. Two versions will be available — the Skeletool ($58) and Skeletool CX ($80; shown), which switches out some of the stainless steel components for carbon fiber.
