Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0
In partnership with Longines
When fearless fliers like Amelia Earheart and Charles Lindbergh journeyed across the ocean, only the most precise mechanics would suffice. That’s why they wore Longines watches to accurately measure time as they defied fear and broke records. The Swiss brand pays tribute to those very same pioneers with the new Spirit Collection, which combines high performance and modern design with retro accents. And thus the pioneering spirit lives on.
Putting its glorious heritage aside, the Longines Spirit is just one heck of a great looking watch. A robust one, too. It comes powered by the brand’s own L888.4 calibre, a self-winding and COSC-certified chronometer movement that beats at 25’200 vibrations per hour. The dial face is streamlined and supremely legible, putting applied Arabic numerals and silver sandblasted hands against a black matte backdrop. A 40mm stainless steel case and genuine brown leather strap drive home the handsome aesthetic.
Your favourite corporate type probably takes to the skies on a regular basis and so he may appreciate this watch on a deeper level. Or he just knows a stunning timepiece when he sees one. Either way, the Longines Spirit makes for an impeccable holiday gift. – US$3,200

Panasonic ES-LV67-K 5-Blade Shaver with Multi-Flex 16-D Head
In partnership with Panasonic
Some say the corporate world is all about appearances and they mean it quite literally. To put it another way: a businessman is only as good as his grooming routine. That brings us to Panasonic’s acclaimed five-blade shaver with a multi-flex 16-D head. Equal parts smart, versatile, and powerful, this bad boy punches well above its price tag. Stray facial hairs don’t stand a chance.
Pairing an ultra-fast motor with a five-blade shaving system, Panasonic’s electric shaver delivers up to 70,000 cross-cuts per minute. Thanks to the flexible 16-D head, the device is also quite adaptive, pivoting effortlessly as it conforms to the skin’s natural contours. All the while, advanced shave sensors are doing their thing by detecting beard densities and automatically adjusting power levels. We told you this thing was smart!
Whether your face is wet or dry, Panasonic’s shaver will leave you feeling as smooth as a baby’s behind (should that be the look you’re going for). Even if you have a dense beard, the product’s nano-polished blades—which sit at a precise 30-degree angle—are duly up to the challenge. A built-in pop-up trimmer is also part of the package. Use this shaver in the shower or on the go or wherever the heck you want because it always delivers. – AU$519.95
The BenRiach 10
In partnership with The BenRiach
Scottish distillery The BenRiach has been firing on all cylinders over the last few years. Should you get the chance to explore their current range in all its breadth, we suggest you do so. In the meantime, their flagship 10-Year expression (aka The Original Ten) is a quintessential Speyside dram if there ever was one. Inspired by the distillery’s first-ever single malt from 1994, it carries forth an established tradition of flavour, character, and texture.
When crafting The Original Ten, BenRiach matures the spirit in three different casks (bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and virgin oak casks) for a minimum of ten years. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to generate layers of orchard fruit, honeyed malt, and toasted oak. Indeed, there’s a reason this expression keeps winning gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, year after year.
Bottled at 43%, The BenRiach 10-Year is yet another no-brainer purchase for the holiday season. Its rich and rewarding profile balances boldness and subtlety to reveal deeper layers with every sip. If the businessman in your life loves Scotch, then he’ll love this. While you’re at it, pick up a bottle for yourself. You’ll be glad you did. – AU$70

Drop Valet Tray
Not to be confused with your average (or even above-average) valet tray, this one from Drop is a multi-tiered masterpiece. Not only does it have room for all the EDC you can throw its way, but the plush and intricate layout is frankly ingenious. If you know someone who collects watches or pocket knives (or both), they’ll absolutely love this thing. Oh, and did we forget to mention it also has a USB cable slot in the back?
Away The Bigger Carry-On
No modern luggage brand has mastered the carry-on quite like Away. Designed to fit in the overhead bin of most major airlines, their Bigger Carry-On is lightweight, durable, and effortlessly optimal. It cruises along on 360-degree spinner wheels and even features a (TSA-approved) removable battery, which doubles as a phone charger. If your favourite businessman doesn’t already own one, he needs one. – AU$325
Pacifico Optical Buckler Sunglasses
We personally collaborated with Pacifico Optical on these limited edition sunnies, which were so popular that they went into regular rotation.

We think we’ll just go ahead and dub them the greatest sunnies ever created! What, too much? – AU$195
