Oprah started presenting an annual list of her favorite things over 20 years ago, a tradition that continued on the Oprah show through 2010, with only one year missed (2009), and continued in her O Magazine in recent years. This year, Oprah is teaming up with Amazon to make it even easier to get your own Favorite Things.
For the Home: Oprah’s favorite things for the home range the gamut from glass straws and cheerful water bottles to fancy infused oils and tea blends, spices, candles, and appliances like a Yedi pressure cooker, Ninja blender, cocktail and margarita maker,DeLonghi espresso maker, and an electric griddle. Snag a few before they sell out, and see if you love them as much as Oprah does!
Tech and Travel: Oprah’s favorite things for tech and travel are here to help you do things just a little easier. From a cashmere-like travel shawl/blanket to a blue-light filtering pair of glasses, a lint remover that will save pilling clothes, gloves that keep your hands warm and let you use your touch screen, a neck messager, and more, there are some great gift ideas here, including a few you’re going to want to gift to yourself! (We’d recommend it, because if Oprah says it’s a good find, you deserve to treat yourself to it too!)
Wellness: Self-care is so important, and Oprah’s favorite wellness things can definitely help you feel more pampered, relaxed, and ready to conquer your to-do list and then recharge again. From French lavender-filled slippers (she recommends you pop them in the microwave for 60 seconds…seriously), spa treatments, soaps and bath salts, workout gear, stretchy bamboo pajamas and a hooded lounger, and some chocolate, treat yourself and every too-busy person you know with some “me-time” – the perfect gift!
Under $50: Oprah’s favorite things may feel luxurious, but they don’t have to break the bank. Here are a few of the more affordable gift ideas, with ideas for pets, kids, him, her, and all ages.
