ULTA: Holiday Gift Guide Ideas #HolidayGiftGuide2016

Everything Mommyhood received the below mentioned items in exchange for this posting.


Christmas is almost here, and it’s no surprise that I know a few of you still haven’t got to shopping yet. Head out to one of my favorite stores, ULTA and pick up some last minute gift ideas! (They even have stuff for men!) I have a handful of great ideas that are perfect for that special someone, so read on below and then head to ULTA or ULTA.com to pick a few things up.


I love these items I got from ULTA so much and I just know you will too.

My number one favorite item is hands down the Smashbox Light It Up Primer gift set. If you do a full face of makeup, this is a must have product.


Smashbox studio essentials duo was developed to help makeup look better and last longer on set.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer:

1st product created at Smashbox Photo Studios L.A.

Blurs, smoothes & perfects

Blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract & green tea

Photo Finish Primer Water:

Leaves skin hydrated, vibrant and radiant for hours – without the shine

Use to restore moisture and refresh throughout the day

Silicone, alcohol and oil-free

You can purchase this for $36.00.

Next up,  brushes are a must have item if you love beauty products. This set City Chic brush set from IT Cosmetics is great!


If you use brushes, you know how pricey they can be individually, which is why this set is a must have in my book.

Chic Powder Brush: Large, fluffy and rounded brush for the perfect powder application.

Chic Blush Brush: Ultra-dense, angled brush for hugging the contours of your face.

Chic Foundation Brush: Flat, tapered paddle brush for effortless foundation application.

Chic Eyeshadow Brush: Small, soft-rounded brush designed for your delicate eye area.

Chic Crease Brush: Narrow, tapered brush designed to fit into your eye crease.

Exclusive Rose Gold Bag: Fashionably chic case comes with a removable tassel and doubles as your night-out clutch.

You can purchase these for $68.

Now we all know at Christmas time we need some fragrance products, which is why the next two items are great.

I just love the Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue set.


Only at ULTA!

Light Blue for Women Gift Set by Dolce&Gabbana includes an Eau de Toilette 0.8 oz. and Body Cream 1.6 oz.

You can purchase this set for $62.00.

Next is the Philosophy Gingerbread House Set. I LOVE this for my daughter. She loves all things that smell good, and this is right up her alley.


It includes four different scents:
Gingerbread House
Peppermint Stick
Fresh Cream
Pink Marshmallow Buttercream

You can purchase this set for $42.

For MEN, my favorite is The American Crew King of Grooming Travel Bag


This includes:
Convenient travel sizes of Daily Shampoo 3.3 oz. and Firm Hold Styling Gel 3.3 oz. and full sizes of the Shave Moisturizing Shave Cream 5.1 oz. and Pomade 3.0 oz.

A $52.80 Value!
You can purchase this for only $29.95.

Last but not least, the ULTA robe!
FREE with any $40.00 Fragrance purchase, which is like getting two gifts in one!

It’s a $60 value!
