Media personality, New York Times best-selling author, restaurateur, healthy comfort-food chef and weight-loss expert Devin Alexander is the chef of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Devin’s unique approach to healthy cooking and her motivational personal story have landed her appearances on more weight-loss and fitness shows than any other food expert or nutritionist in America. Having maintained her 70-pound weight loss for close to 20 years, she lives and eats her message: You don’t have to deprive yourself to be fit and healthy.
“Holidays are all about family and food—my two favorite things! Plus, it’s the one time of year that I actually manage to complete a “me” project. How could I not be a huge fan,” says Alexander. “My town of Manhattan Beach does a tree-lighting ceremony, and the whole community comes out! I love that!”
“I once heard that in Hollywood you can never be too rich—or too 29. And although I still claim that I’m 29, I’m far from it. I’ve also never had Botox or “work” done, so I rely on killer anti-aging systems like this one! It’s a great gift for anyone wanting to stay 29.”
“Though this adorable brush set from Make Me Blush is called a travel kit, I love to keep it on my bathroom counter for super-quick access at all times. The brushes are very cozy for everyday use, and the bright case adds flair to my bathroom.”
“It’s no secret that I’ve worked on The Biggest Loser for years. And the most common question I’m asked (besides “How do I get a decadent dinner on the table quickly?”) is, “How do I get rid of cellulite and loose skin?” Anything that helps with those concerns is a friend of my friends and worth gifting!”
“We’re all busy—really busy! So my idea of a great gift is something that is all-in-one. The recipients of this gift won’t have to do a thing more than open the case to look pretty, pretty, pretty!”
“I’m a huge fan of all of Murad’s collagen-boosting products. From Rapid Collagen Infusion Lotion for Face to Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips, you just can’t go wrong adding a little collagen to all the right places! And for someone who travels a ton—and has a lot of road-warrior friends—it’s so convenient to have products that are small enough to make it through TSA!”
