AS SEEN ON TV: Gifts that will delight everyone on your list, in a year unlike any other

The holidays are looking a little different this year – given new state restrictions that may thin out staff at warehouses and inevitable shipping delays given the volume of essential and non-essential goods that are being drop-shipped, too. It’s critical to shop earlier than ever, but don’t worry, I am here to help sort through the overwhelming internet catalogue, right down to the good stuff!

Here’s what I’m gifting loved ones, and myself – let’s be honest – this holiday season.

This was definitely the year of giving… we all gave so much of ourselves to our families and loved ones leaving very little time for our own selves, so it’s time to pamper and take care of your skin, and all those areas we already typically forget, like the neck and décolleté.

The skin there is more delicate and prone to crepeyness, and StriVectin’s Uplifting Wonder Duo includes the full-sizes of this #1 selling cream women are raving about that’s especially formulated for the neck and décolleté. This special kit also includes the new Peptight 360 Tightening Eye Serum that targets loss of contour as well as sagging of the upper eyelids. I love giving the gift of beauty, and this year it truly doubles as the gift of love and pampering, which we all deserve.

In a year unlike any other there’s been a rise in the number of people experiencing disrupted sleep, in fact, Google searches for ‘what to do when you can’t sleep’ are up 120%!

Good sleep is the foundation for good health and This Works, has hand-selected their star sleep aids into a luxurious gifting collection, designed to help you switch off, for better sleep. Each set is infused with their signature sleep Superblend – a blend of essential oils from calming Lavender to soothing Vetivert and sleep-inducing Chamomile – proven to help you fall asleep faster and wake feeling more refreshed, I’m all about the science, and a good night’s sleep, so I’ll definitely be gifting this set to my friends this year!

People are traveling less for the holidays, and may have not made it to the places they love to vacation this year, here’s looking at you, San Juan, but here’s a great idea to bring ‘a little bit of the beach’ to that special family, friend or colleague – you’ll have a tough time topping this!

Topsail Steamer is the fun you’ll want to gift up this season. Their Bay Buckets with wild-caught seafood, fresh andouille sausage, and kielbasa arrive in a single-use, fully recyclable pot, you just add water or your favorite beer or wine then cook it directly on your stovetop. In just 45 minutes you have an authentic coastal seafood feast, without all the sand in your sandals. Everything is included, even the brown paper to spread out on the table. Their seasonal offerings now include holiday bundles that include cornbread and pie, too!

I’m loving this six-in-one kettlebell from JAXJOX, the KettlebellConnect 2.0, it’s part resistance training system, part digital coach. It really feels like you’re exercising in the future! You can change the weight through the app, or on the LED screen on the front of the system – it can go from 12lbs to 42lbs in just three seconds! The on-demand workouts are tracked with built-in motion sensors on the device that track reps, power, sets, and time – making this the perfect gift for anyone trying to find a workout regimen that will keep them accountable.
