The Prep Guy’s 5 Holiday Essentials

Hey Prepsters,

We are only 5 days away from Christmas Day, so I created a fun little list of my personal fave 5 Holiday Essentials! Hopefully it will inspire you for a couple of last minute gift ideas, or even to find something special for yourself.

1. Craigellachie 13 – Last Great Malts of Scotland

When you’re hanging out with a group of friends and family this holiday season, there’s nothing like a good bottle of whisky to bring everyone together. The Craigellachie 13 is one of five single malts from five special distilleries in Scotland. This is definitely a special treat to bring to be enjoyed amongst a group, or as a keepsake for your personal pleasures. The Craigellachie 13 is truly a drink for the adventurous drinker.

Tasting Notes: Stubborn, Sulphur, Meaty

Available now: in Ontario at the LCBO, in British Columbia at BC Liquor & various private retailers, and in Alberta at Liquor Depot & various private retailers.

2. Stylish Headsets!

One of my personal favourite essentials for men is a stylish pair of headphones! I am a huge fan of Master and Dynamic’s MH40 earphones. With lux leather details, these would be the perfect gift for a techie or any gent.

3. Signature Scent

My current signature fragrance is Azzaro’s woodsy and spicy new scent for men, Wanted! It’s long lasting and smells incredible. The spice in the scent makes it perfect for this time of year.

4. A Coloured Blazer

It’s time to bring out your coloured blazers this season! I’m loving both jewel tones and holiday inspired colours like red! They can add a little extra flair to your Holiday look, or make for a perfect gift for a daring guy.

5. Cool Cufflinks

Cufflinks are always an essential part of Holiday dressing! This year spice up your holiday look, or give a memorable and unique gift with creative and novelty cufflinks! Paul Smith is the go-to brand if you’re looking for a fun pair of cufflinks this season.
