17 Christmas Gifts To Get From Ulta This Year

This year more than in other years it seems like the holiday sales and deals started earlier. That means more time to whittle down your gift list and more opportunities to save while doing it. One of my favorite places to gift shop is Ulta. Not only can I find great gifts there across several different price points but I can also find a few things for myself as well.

This year Ulta has several great gift sets and individual items that will make the receivers of your gifts very happy. When it comes to gift sets they come in a wide variety. They could be a limited edition product or a value set. And they typically come in pretty packaging. So you don’t always need to spend a lot of time wrapping them.

Here are my 17 top picks, all of them are $25 or less. Oh, and I threw in a few gifts for the guys as well.

This set comes with travel-sized versions of the popular Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara and the
Lip Injection Extreme.

This is full of neutral shades that are highly pigmented and claim to deliver incredible staying power. The shades included in the palette are a mix of shimmers, metallics, and mattes.

As the name of this nail polish set indicates, it has three wine-colored nail shades to add some warmth to your holiday gear. The set also includes a top coat polish. Shades include the 
  • I Love You Just Be-Cusco
  • In the Cable Carpool Lane
  • Complimentary Wine
  • Top Coat

4. Tarte Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler Duo

I've never used an eyelash curler and don't see myself using one anytime in the near future but I know several women who do so I would most likely buy this as a gift versus something for me. 

This gift set includes what Tarte calls the "first ergonomically designed Eyelash Curler" and the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara.


5. Kitsch Satin Pillowcase

Satin pillowcases are great for our hair because they are soft and smooth thereby protecting our hair from damage and drying out at night. This pillowcase comes in 5 different colors/patterns.

6. Turbie Twist Satin Pillowcases Set

 Here's another satin pillowcase option. It may be a better deal because it's a set that includes two satin pillowcases that fit standard and queen-sized pillows.

7. It's A 10 Leave-In Mini Kit

This is a great kit for trying out some of the It's A 10 leave-in conditioners
  • Silk Express Miracle Silk Leave-In: Strengthens and restores vital moisture and nutrients into dry, damaged hair, adds silky shine and smoothness with natural body, seals in hydration while shielding from frizz, and protects color-treated hair against fading and dryness
  • Miracle Leave-In Lite: Ultra-light formula for fine or short hair. Delivers the same repair, restoration, detangling, and de-frizzing agents as the original. Uses the lightest, most effective natural ingredients. Prevents split ends, faded color, heavy conditioning, and environmental damage
  • Potion 10 Miracle Instant Repair Leave-In: A concentrated conditioning mist that penetrates deep into the hair for all-day moisturizing action

8. Batiste Dry Shampoo Duo

I like using dry shampoo when I work out multiple days in a row which makes me sweat on my scalp. Batiste has great dry shampoos so this kit is perfect for someone who goes to the gym on a regular basis.


9. Patchology Serve Chilled Rosé Hydrating Eye Gels

These eye gels are rich in antioxidants to help fight the signs of aging and protect against environmental stresses all while delivering a mega dose of hydration. You can get these as 1 pair, 5 pairs, or 15 pairs. The 15 pairs are the most expensive and are over $25.

10. Flawless by Finishing Touch Flawless Contour

I've never used a face roller but looking at Instagram they seem to be pretty popular. This particular roller says it "includes both a rolling massage head and under eye press that features a real, natural Rose Quartz stone with a modern, controlled vibration technology designed to help provide toning benefits." 

11. Mario Badescu Grab And Go Travel Set

This is a great gift for the Winter months because our skin could all use a little pick-me-up and moisture during the dry, cold weather. This set includes two travel-sized products
  • Drying Lotion (1.0 oz.)
  • Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater (2.0 oz.)

12. The Body Shop Soothe & Smooth Almond Milk & Honey Treats Gift Box

This set is perfect for pampering your skin in the winter. It claims to be good for dry and sensitive skin and is made with Community Fair Trade almond milk and oil from Spain, handcrafted Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana, and Community Fair Trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua. The set includes 
  • Almond Milk Body Butter (1.69 oz)
  • Almond Milk & Honey Shower Gel (2.0 oz)

13. The Ordinary Blemish Control Bundle

I use a couple of The Ordinary's serums daily in my skincare routine and one of them is in this bundle - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. That serum has helped me to reduce and get rid of blemishes quickly so I can only imagine how much help these other two serums in the bundle, Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution and AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, could be when they are all used together.

14. Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

This four-pack can be a great simple gift for him, her, or both. They're formulated to nourish the lips and have Peppermint Oil which gives the lips a refreshing tingle.

I know nothing about beards but this sounds like a good starter gift for beard care as it comes with 
  • Beard Wash (3.0 oz)
  • An extra-firm, boar bristle brush
  • Beard Control

16. Duke Cannon Supply Co Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm

Perfect for the wintertime this hand balm is made with lanolin and provides much-needed moisture without leaving the hands feeling sticky or greasy unscented.

17. Dionis Men's Goat Milk Bath & Body Set

This bath & body set offers the best combination of shave and moisture all in one box. The goat milk it contains is loaded with proteins and vitamins that will protect his skin and leave him moisturized. The kit includes:
  • Goat Milk Shave Butter (6.0 oz)
  • Goat Milk Body Moisturizer (8.5 oz)
