When this time of year comes around, it can be a struggle to find gifts for those you love. With so many amazing gifts available it can be hard to find the perfect gift. But when on a budget it can be an even bigger struggle. To make this year gift-giving less of a struggle, we’ve curated a list of amazing gifts that are all under $200.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
For those who love peated whisky, Laphroaig 10-Year is as quintessential as they come. Firing on all cylinders, it rides in on luscious waves of smoke with underlying iodine elements and generous hints of sweetness and salt. The finish is no less phenomenal, going long and dry on notes of chocolate, espresso, and more smoke. One sip and you know immediately whether or not Islay whisky is up your alley. It’s certainly up ours!
We won’t go into Laphroaig’s long history but we will say that this distillery has stayed the course for over two centuries. They’ve occupied the same storm-battered island off the west coast of Scotland all that time, slowly turning the world onto the wonders of peated whisky. This is the true taste of Islay and it delivers endless rewards to those with adventurous palates. Timid taste buds need not apply.
Asics Japan S
Japanese footwear brand Asics has updated a retro classic with improved cup sole technology for greater comfort. Aesthetically speaking, the Japan S looks as stylish and versatile now as it did when it debuted back in 1981, albeit for different reasons. Touting a low-profile silhouette, the beloved basketball sneaker features vintage brand detailing such as the exaggerated stripes on the side panels.
Thanks to its re-engineered cup sole application, the Japan S is more lightweight and supportive than ever before. Born on the courts perhaps, but it works beautifully with a full spectrum of modern ensembles, allowing you to wear it across a host of terrains without losing your stylish stride. Choose between three different colourways and pick up a pair for your favourite sneakerhead. – AU$130
Equal parts compact, convenient, and collapsible, BLUNT’s Metro UV delivers a UPF rating of 50+. That’s thanks to its special blackout canopy, which uses a signature fabric to block out 99% of ultra-violet light. Stay safe from the sun and cool as well, enjoying the kind of lower temperatures that you’d find in ample shade.
Opening the canopy of this stylish umbrella is as simple as pushing a button. With a push of the very same button, the canopy collapses back down to fit neatly in its original carry sleeve. A 360° spinning canopy design ensures that no damage comes to the core mechanism in the case of accidents. Choose between a variety of different sizes and colours and don’t hit up the beach without one. – AU$119
