Annual Festivus holiday giveaway is finally here

Contest kicks off Dec.. 7 with gift guide to follow

Get Out There's annual holiday giveaway and gift guide gets underway on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and will run for eight days this year. 

The contest has been running for eight years, and is always Get Out There's biggest and best giveaway of the year, with thousands of dollars in prizes. 

This year is no different, with brands such as Arc'teryx, Polar, and Fjallraven leading the way with exception items up for grabs. 

"We do this every year because it's so much fun," says Get Out There editorial director Ron Johnson. "It's the perfect time of year to bring a little joy to a few lucky readers, and it's a good way to showcase some of our favourite brands as well."

Get Out There will also be publishing a gift guide leading up to the holidays. 

One of the most exciting items this year is a choice of a jacket from Fjallraven. The jacket options range in price from $250 to $750. And, it will be one to garner a lot of interest. 

For Festivus, each day there will be a post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The posts will include links to the contest landing page where people can enter, and read full rules. The announcement of the winners will begin later in the week. 

Good luck to everyone and happy holidays!
