Although the ashtray is timeless and practical (and usually necessary regardless of what or where you smoke), some offer a lot more than just a place to drop your ash, like eye-catching intricacies, multifunctional gadgets, and a wide array of materials that make clean-up a breeze. In other words, an ashtray isn’t just an ashtray anymore.
You can still grab simple, vintage-style ashtrays that serve their purpose while serving up classic vibes. Or, you can opt for a leveled-up ashtray, like one that doubles as a storage tray or a silicone ashtray with a built-in debowler. No matter your preference or need, we think you’ll find what you need in our list of the 10 Best Ashtrays of 2023 below:
