Laura Curtis, MECCA Fragrance, Hair & Body Education Manager
“I will be gifting this set to everyone in my life who wants to embrace an effortless summer glow! The multipurpose hair oil can used in damp or dry hair to hydrate, smooth and add shine, and the honey-infused lip oil provides a luscious your-lips-but-better sheen. Perfect for throwing in a beach bag or clutch for on-the-go touch-ups all summer long.”
“I love gifting my loved ones products that they didn’t even know existed, or products that they’ve always been curious to try but wouldn’t think to invest in for themselves. This scalp care set from ARKIVE is just that – a scalp scrub, scalp serum and massager to inspire a moment of respite and self-care. Our scalps need just as much TLC as the skin on our faces and bodies, so this kit is perfect for inspiring us to indulge ourselves from head to toe.”
Mason Whitton, MECCA Colour Specialist
“This Holiday season, ghd are launching their Platinum+ Alluring Jade Straightener in a beautiful dusty pink vanity case – the perfect luxury gift for my mum. She loves styling her hair, but with naturally dry, curly hair, it often takes up a lot of time and energy and can cause more damage. The wider plate and sleek edges of the new Platinum+ would allow her to achieve multiple different styles, while being quicker, easier and with less damage.”
“My best friend, Olivia, loves travelling; she frequents the beach, mountain hikes and is going to Bangkok early next year. She’s also very SPF conscious – so, I’ll be getting her the Naked Sundays Ultimate Summer Beach Kit, which includes the SPF50+ Hydrating Glow Mist, SPF50 Antioxidant Body Cream and a beach towel. How perfect!”
Jordie Johnson, MECCA Skin Specialist
“This one is for my mum, to treat herself like the treasure she is: a simple and indulgent La Mer [BRAND PAGE] regimen that’s easy to follow! Top tips for the Treatment Lotion and Moisturizing Soft Cream: warm the products in the hands and gently press into the skin – the Miracle Broth™ will work its magic, leaving skin glowing and soothed.”
“If there's one thing I love to gift, it’s SPF. I'll be gifting this set to my younger relatives who are new to SPF, teaching them the importance of daily use and reapplication with the Hydrating Glow Mist top-up! A perfect gift, as it has all the SPF necessities anyone could need.”
Sangeetha Smith, MECCA Fragrance, Hair and Body Education Lead
“The perfect gift for all hair types! This lightweight serum-oil hybrid with nourishing botanicals, moisturises, adds shine, smells incredible and promotes overall scalp and hair health. My favourite tip is to use this oil as a pre-shampoo treatment for strong, nourished locks and a relaxing moment of self-care. Massage into the scalp and hair, then comb through with the beautiful limited-edition comb.”
“Maison Margiela’s REPLICA fragrances diffuse scented memories, and the candles are a beautiful, decorative way to gift their coveted collection. And if you’re unsure about choosing the perfect scent for your loved one, this iconic trio – featuring Lazy Sunday Morning, By The Fireplace and Jazz Club - takes the pressure off, while delighting with something special this Holiday season.”
