1. Hamilton Khaki Field Expedition

Price: from AU$1,825

An ideal gift for those with a taste for adventure and exploration, the classic field watch is an essential part of any outdoorsman’s kit. Fortunately, they don’t come any more ruggedly handsome—or with a more authentic pedigree—than this latest effort from Hamilton. The Hamilton Khaki Field Expedition takes the hard-won ingenuity and grit forged both on battlefields around the world and on America’s railroads, and uses it to create a timepiece that offers up the height of functionality and style.

Boasting a compass design on its bi-directional rotating bezel, the Khaki Field Expedition will help you use the sun to keep track of your direction in the great outdoors, while the screw-down crown and 10 bar (100m) water resistance will ensure it holds up in all conditions. Plus, it’ll keep going and going, thanks to the H-10 automatic movement—ensuring maximum accuracy—and the 80-hour power reserve.

Minimalist, ultra-legible, and highly durable, while simultaneously maintaining an undeniable sense of style, the Hamilton Khaki Field Expedition is a watch you’ll want to strap on every time you step outside.

2. Glenmorangie The Original 10 Years Old

Price: from AU$72

A timeless dram if there ever was one, Glenmorangie The Original 10 Years Old is guaranteed to please the whisky lover in your life. It’s crafted using local water and grain, distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, and aged in ex-bourbon casks to render a truly distinctive flavour profile. Every sip delivers an impeccable balance between sweet and floral notes over a deliciously nutty backbone with subtle citrus accents. That gives way to a creamy finish of orange and peach, the kind that most whiskies aspire to but rarely achieve.

Whether sipped neat, on the rocks, or in a spirit-forward cocktail, Glenmorangie’s flagship single malt goes down like warm silk but nevertheless offers copious complexity. At its core is a recipe so dependable that the distillery uses it as the base for pretty much its entire range. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, as the saying goes, and this award-winning juice duly abides. We might also add that it’s quite affordable compared to other single malts of its calibre. Now if you don’t mind, we’re about to go pick up a bottle for ourselves!
