Haven't been on in awhile. I emailed the OW Jan 2021. She said she never emailed him personally and he only sent her one gift. Since then I have found it was multiple gifts. Should I confriont her and let her I know she is lying or just be done?

It depends on where you are in your journey. It sounds like she hasn't come 100% clean, and that's not a good sign.

You will never get the truth from the AP. Stop all contact with her.

So let’s play this out. You call the OW and tell her you know she lied.
She either lies again OR says so what or yeah ….and?!
What will it change?

What does the OW have to gain from being honest?
Not much really. In fact she might have more to gain from being mean and causing you as much pain as possible. Based on what you have shared with her then that is probably her likely route.
Stop focusing on her. What she did or does or says is NOT the issue. The issue is that your husband needs to convince you 100% that he’s shared everything you need. That can be verified with hard evidence (such as credit-card transactions, account statements, phone-bills…), circumstantial evidence and/or eventually a poly where he hopefully passes.

You aren't married to the AP. She is not worthy of your attention. You as well as your husband should be 100% no contact with her, permanently.
She's an adulterer, someone who has chosen to have sex with another woman's husband. That's much worse than lying, and you already know that she's done that, and she knows that you know. There is nothing more significant to confront her about. Let it be. Don't give her any more feelings of power by showing her that you still need to confront her.

A woman who willingly sleeps with a married man is trash. She has no morals or values and cannot be trusted. She went behind your back and received gifts, affection, attention, and had no problem breaking your heart. What makes you think she will tell you truth? Her loyalty is not to you. It’s to herself.
