16 Best Affordable Gifts

Gift-giving should be simple and fun. Around this time of year, we usually begin our Christmas gift buying and for many people it can be hard to find the perfect gift. Especially when on a budget, but it doesn’t have to be at least this year. That’s why we’ve curated a list of amazing gifts for everyone that are all cost effective.

Slane whiskey

Slane Irish Whiskey

In partnership with Brown Forman

Bridging the gap between two worlds, Slane Distillery combines time-tested production methods with a range of modern techniques. Surrounded by a fertile landscape, they use the local River Boyne as a water source and take all their grains and barley from the soil of the Boyne Valley. Distillation is followed by a signature triple-casked maturation process in respective virgin casks, seasoned American oak, and ex-Oloroso sherry casks.

The resulting spirit is every bit as nuanced and complex as one might expect, with each cask imparting its own influence. On the nose are prominent notes of oak, spice, dried fruit, and butterscotch. The taste is similarly dynamic, getting richer as it progresses and dropping plenty of burnt caramel, honey, and spice along the way. A relatively smooth finish retains subtle layers of sweetness, priming you for that next delicious sip. This is distinguished Irish whiskey at a terrific price and thus an ideal holiday gift. – AU$50

Superdry Swim Shorts

In partnership with Superdry

Pairing British style sensibilities with vintage Americana and Japanese-inspired graphics, Superdry have taken off across the world stage. Their commitment to quality fabrics and tailored fits remains second to none, which is exactly why so many people (including numerous celebrities) are picking up what this brand is throwing down.

Crafted from polyester cotton, their Tri Series Swim Short keeps things simple and comfortable. An eye-catching pattern adorns the drawstring and injects the perfect amount of visual contrast, as does the logo detailing. The short exudes effortless wearability and obliges you to head outdoors for the next adventure. This is seasonal style done right. – AU$80

Rum 2

Flor de Caña Rum 12 year Rum

In partnership with Flor de Cana

Since their founding in 1890, award-winning distillery Flor de Caña has been operated by the same family (now in its fifth generation). Their 12-year rum is an outright classic and a sustainable one at that, being distilled using 100% renewable energy and produced in compliance with over 300 labour, social, and environmental standards. In fact, this is the only spirit in the world that’s both Carbon Neutral and Fair Trade certified. As if all that weren’t enough, the brand also plants 50,000 trees on an annual basis.

Naturally aged inside premium bourbon barrels and without any sugar or artificial ingredients, Flor de Caña Rum is exceptionally smooth. It’s enjoyed best in a Rum Old Fashioned or with a splash of premium sparkling water or ginger ale with an orange twist. Of course, you’re also welcome to sip it neat, relishing its clean profile of red fruit, honey, and toasted nuts. Cheers to that! – AU$90
