The Ultimate Gift: An Unforgettable Beauty Experience

Memo Best Beauty Experiences Hero 16x9

Words by Samantha Brigden

Originally published on | December 12

There’s a reason experiences are such incredible gifts. It's something you can guarantee won’t just sit gathering dust in a drawer, it can be tailored to them and it can help them create memories that will last a lifetime.

Plus, if you're a gifting procrastinator (guilty), they can be organised without having to step foot into a busy shopping centre. If you know their schedule, you can pre-book the experience and, while you’re at it, book yourself in too – because if there’s one thing everyone wants, it’s quality time with loved ones!

Or, if you're not so sure when they'll next be free for some 'me time', just get them a gift card they can use to book in the service. Either way, these beauty experiences are guaranteed to please...

Treat them – and their skin

Do they deserve an experience worthy of an A-lister? Gift them a MECCA Facial – the perfect chance to try the world's very best skincare. Think: celebrity-loved brands like Augustinus Bader and Dr Barbara Sturm, dermatologist-designed formulas from Dr Dennis Gross and skincare from global spas thanks to Susanne Kaufmann and Omorovicza.

After 60 minutes of complete and utter relaxation (expertly delivered by a Skin Specialist), they'll leave with their most radiant skin yet. That's on top of a newfound skincare knowledge and whatever products they choose to redeem the cost of the service on.

For the makeup lover (or learner)

No matter how much you love makeup, there’s always more to learn. And that’s exactly what a MECCA Makeup Lesson is for! This interactive session is perfect for anyone from a younger cousin looking to cover the basics to a mum wanting to brush up on their skills.

They'll get 90 minutes of 1:1 time with a MECCA Makeup Specialist, ready to demonstrate any look they like. Whether they want the 411 on the latest trends (think: #TomatoGirl and #LatteMakeup) or the chance to finally nail the winged liner of their dreams, this is the gift that keeps on giving – every single time they apply their makeup.

Help them find their scent soulmate

Have they been on the hunt for a fragrance that just feels like them? There's an easy shortcut to their signature scent (and a guaranteed gifting win): a MECCA Fragrance Consult for Two.

Taking away any worries of picking the right notes (with bonus bonding time included), a MECCA Fragrance Specialist can guide you through a private, personalised experience. Over 60 minutes, explore a curation of scents tailored to both of your preferences in the company of our expert ‘noses'. Then, they can pick their favourite to redeem the booking cost on – and thank you for their new forever fragrance afterwards...

Jewellery designed just for them

Gifting jewellery is incredibly personal, and therefore risky – but it’s a different story when the recipient is actually involved in the process! If only the best will do, MARIA TASH is here to deliver. The global destination for luxury piercing, MARIA TASH’s jewellery is worn by everyone from Rihanna to Taylor Swift – and soon, your favourite loved one! Exclusive to MECCA George Street, book them in for a personalised consultation and piercing service here; they’ll leave with a shimmering new accessory they’re sure to treasure for years.

Looking for something extra sentimental? You can’t go past a bespoke fingerprint piece from Linden Cook. Using a wax casting technique, the clever jewellers can create custom fingerprint pieces completely unique in shape and print. This service is available in-store at MECCA Armadale in Melbourne and George Street in Sydney – book here.

Give them a spa-like experience – at home

If there’s a homebody in your life who you want to pamper, give them all the tools they need to do it themselves. First, scent the mood for self-care with Diptyque’s Baies Scented Taper Candle.

Then, of course, skincare. If they're a minimalist, go for the kit: Your Unwind Kit – featuring a nightly ritual to nourish their body, face and mind. Or, if they know their essence from their moisturiser, give them the gift on every skincare lover’s wishlist: Drunk Elephant’s TRUNK 7.0. (basically a full skincare routine in one!).
