THE IN-TRAY

The men of MECCA reveal their Holiday gift picks for 2021

Socks, ties and tech have been done before: this year, it’s time to bring on the beauty for the merry men in your life.

We’ve got you covered with fragrance, grooming and skincare favourites he's sure to love (and not necessarily buy for himself).

To set you on the right track, we’ve tapped three MECCA men with top-notch taste to get the low-down on what they’re gifting – and hoping to get gifted – these holidays.

Murray, digital design lead

“After a year grounded in Melbourne, I’m planning on spending the holidays beachside with friends in Sydney. I’m counting down the days!

“Gifting the Mecca Cosmetica Limited Edition Holiday To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen has become a yearly tradition for me, so I’ll be packing several tubes into my case for my loved ones. I know a few friends also have their eye on the sans [ceuticals] Luminous Top To Toe Kit too – the brown bag packaging is quite cool and understated amongst the red and green everywhere!

“And finally, I’ve made it no secret that Le Labo’s Rose 31 is my number-one gift pick this year – so if you know me and you’re reading this, you know what to do!”

Josh, digital business analyst

“This year I’m most looking forward to Christmas Eve with family and friends – which traditionally consists of a random activity like an escape room or murder mystery party, followed by board games and wine.

“When it comes to gifting, the Le Labo EDP Discovery Set takes the top spot on my wishlist. There’s a lot of events coming up in December, so what better way to keep things fresh?

“My wife has eczema and has found her new best friend in the Kate Somerville range. The Stressed Skin Recovery Kit offers all of her favourite products in one, so I’ll definitely be sneaking that into her stocking this year!”

Steven, influencer relations specialist


“Although I live in Melbourne, Adelaide is home to me and I never miss a year heading back to catch up with loved ones! I’ll be taking the Mecca Cosmetica The Great Protectors and Glisten and Glow sets with me to gift to family and friends, because a) summer is here, and b) I love a sheet mask!

“As for myself, I have been eyeing the diptyque Feu De Bois candle – the smell is incredible and brings a unique ambience to the room once you light it.

“Other than that, I am obsessed with Drunk Elephant and love travel-sized products. The Littles 4.0 set is great when travelling because really, who wants to take their entire skincare shelf with them?”
