The holidays are a time for giving and we’re doing just that through an indisputably awesome Instagram campaign. For each of the 12 days of Christmas, we’ll be awarding one special winner with an epic prize (making that 12 winners total). We’re not talking about your standard stocking stuffer, either. This is some seriously choice swag with retail values of AU$500 and up. How does a bottle of 19-year-old Balvenie whisky sound? Or maybe a stunning Raymond Weil chronograph? Those are just two amongst the legion of killer prizes lying in wait. Who’s your true love now, baby?
Here’s how the whole campaign is going down. Every single day for 12 days in a row, we’ll post a specific image (i.e. the prize) to Instagram. People will have to tag a friend to enter and also follow both our account and the account of the participating brand. The competition for all 12 prizes will end at 11:59 pm on 15 December AEDT. All prizes will be drawn and posted to Instagram on the 16th of December. To reiterate, you must tag a friend, follow us, and follow the participating brand in order to enter. It’s that simple and that sweet.
But what do I win?!!!! Most of you are probably asking. Get ready because we’re giving away some genuinely terrific prizes. Behold the 12 epic prizes that are part of our 12 Days of Christmas campaign this year:
Day 1: Raymond Weil Tango Chronograph
What a way to kick off our 12 Days of Christmas campaign! As lovers of premium Swiss horology, this might be our favourite prize out of the whole bunch. Dubbed the Tango300, it comes from master watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL and takes the form of a 43mm chronograph. Features include a stainless steel case with black PVD coating, anodized black aluminium tachymeter bezel, and stunning black dial. Just one look and we’re wondering why we didn’t keep this one for ourselves! Tis the season, we suppose…
Perched upon the Tango’s sleek dial face are Arabic numerals and indexes, three black sub-dials, a yellow inner bezel and second hand, and a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. The piece runs on Swiss quartz chronograph movement and employs a black genuine rubber strap with a double push-security system. Not to mention 300m water resistant! Some might call it the perfect watch for summer but we’d be happy to sport this beauty all year round. You’ll be happy too, should you win one. Good luck. Retail value: AU$2,195

Day 4: Balvenie Edge of Burnhead Wood + 6 Crystal Glencairn Glasses
If you’re serious about your Scotch, then The Balvenie needs no introduction. Operating in the heart of Speyside, they craft some of the finest single malts you’ll ever taste. This particular expression was born after the distillery’s estate manager took a walk to the Edge of Burnhead Wood, arriving upon a moor of heather. It’s the burning of that very same heather that lends the storied sipper its fruity and fragrant edge.
The Balvenie Edge of Burnhead Wood is also the distillery’s first-ever expression made entirely with ingredients grown on their Dufftown estate. Aged for 19 long years, it balances aromas of fig and geranium oil with herbal undertones. The taste is absolutely toe-curling, layering warm notes of honey, cloves, and caramelised baked dates on top of citrus and spice, with an oaky dryness running underneath. Oak carries through to the finish, where dried blossoms linger long on the palate. Win a bottle in our giveaway and you’ll also get six Glencairn glasses of fine crystal worth $390! Retail value: +/- AU$890
Day 5: Arc’teryx Beta AR Jacket
Outdoor clothing brand Arc’teryx knocked one out of the park with the Beta AR Jacket. Thanks to rugged GORE-TEX PRO technology, the waterproof garment is as durable as modern outerwear can get. It’s also packable, breathable, and versatile, keeping you comfortable through a host of conditions and terrains. We might add that it’s quite stylish as well.
Built for adventure, the Beta AR features a helmet-compatible DropHood with an internal collar for added protection, along with an embedded RECCO reflector. Between all that and its sturdy construction, there’s no foul weather getting in your way. Throw it on and take to the nearest mountaintop, relishing the impressive support that these next-generation materials and details provide. Normally hundreds of dollars, this dynamic apparel can be yours free of charge. But first, you have to win.
