AS SEEN ON TV: Holiday gift picks for all the favorite people on your list

The National Retail Federation finds the average consumer will spend close to $1,000 on gifts and other purchases. That’s a pretty penny. No need to stress, guys! I’ve done all the heavy lifting, literally. As a mom of twin toddlers, let me tell ya, it’s hard to get a workout in other than muscling them up three flights of stairs.

Well, I love a solution that’s smart – and compact. The Tempo Move gives you the experience and results of working with a trainer by offering real-time feedback, weight recommendations, and a training plan, and this full gym takes up only a tiny footprint as a sleek cabinet!

As you work out Tempo Move tracks your reps, form, weight – even the speed of your reps – and the artificial intelligence customizes your workout smarter than any human ever could. t comes with 50 pounds of smart weights and connects through your phone and TV for a fully immersive workout experience that favors effort over time – smarter, not harder, amirite? Really a great price point for an AI-powered gym at $395 and that includes shipping, too.

There’s also never been a better time to pick up an air fryer, because now you’re finally able to cook two dishes that you can synchronize to serve at the exact same time, genius, people.

The CRUXGG TriZone 9 Quart Air Fryer was voted Best Air Fryer of 2021 by Esquire – and it’s engineered with patent-pending technology that features one extra-large cooking area that can be divided into two – so chicken fingers for the kids and salmon for the adults, or an entrée and a side – served hot and crispy together so you don’t need to microwave the straggler dish!

I’m also loving their Rotating Ceramic Nonstick Waffle Maker that makes 5 one-inch thick Belgian waffles in under 10 minutes – so fun for holiday mornings.

CRUXGG just launched 8 products exclusively at Target which will be 30% off through the holidays, plus 5% of the proceeds go to a collective of nonprofits working to end food insecurity.

As far as beauty, I’m really loving this holiday gift set from OLEHENRIKSEN. You’ve probably heard of banana powder as a celebrity makeup artist secret to brighten that dark undereye area, well this Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum with 15% Vitamin C is clinically proven to give you brighter, bouncier skin in 7 days without makeup, you’re usually getting 3% in other topicals if you’re lucky! You’re also getting C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème which gives you a full 24-hours of moisture and a color-correcting Banana Bright Eye Crème. Make sure you start off with a pea-sized amount every other night, this stuff is super-charged, and truly a great value.

This next one became this year’s viral foundation launch and sold out multiple times when TikTokers showed off the texture and coverage after just one swipe on the cheek – this is KVD Beauty’s Good Apple Skin Perfecting Foundation Balm.

It’s really unlike any texture I’ve felt before, it glides on like a buttery balm, but it’s super surprising when you see it apply as full coverage with a velvety finish that doesn’t crease! It’s formulated with hydrating apple extract and is available in 40 inclusive shades, you can use code ANNA20 at KVDVeganBeauty.com for 20% off or pick it up at Ulta or Sephora.
