It’s November, which means it’s time for everyone to get a free car! Nope, that’s something else. It’s actually time for Oprah to release the annual list of her favourite things, a shopping guide filled with items that range from practical to practically only made for Oprah. It’s a pretty large net to cast.

For this year’s list, Oprah has cut down her faves to *only* 105 items, which is a lot for a letter to Santa, but not much when you’re Oprah, the human version of St. Nick. For Oprah Winfrey, Christmas comes every day.


As good as the products are, Oprah’s descriptions are even better, like the $100 panini press that she gives to guests in the place of goody bags. Or how about the time she bought a house because it had a hammock? It’s good to be Oprah.

Here are some of our favourite items from this year’s list of Oprah’s Favourite Things, separated into practical lists that will make your buying process a little easier this year.

THINGS THAT ACTUAL PEOPLE COULD BUY

Buffalo Plaid Holiday Family Jammies, $10 – $40

Has anyone ever said, no thanks, I have too many pairs of cute pajamas? Not for $10 they haven’t.

Oprah.com

Taylor 11-Pound Weighing Bowl and Scale, $50

Your loved one may not be stoked that you bought them a food scale for Christmas, but just remind them that Oprah looks great.

Oprah.com

Orbit Card, $40

The Orbit Card looks like a regular credit card, but works as a tracking device connected to your phone if you lose your wallet. That’s pretty brilliant, unless you lose your phone and your wallet together.

Oprah.com

Gourmia GSI180 Automatic Healthy Frozen Dessert Maker, $50

Okay, a gadget that turns frozen fruit into sorbet for under a hundred bucks is pretty sweet.

Oprah.com

Pudus Classics Red Plaid Lumberjack Slipper Socks, $13 – $25

It says a lot about a product when you feel cozy just looking at it.

Oprah.com

Center Stage Reading Sunglasses, $22

Tinted reading glasses for $22?! That Oprah is a woman of the people.

Oprah.com

THINGS THAT ONLY OPRAH COULD BUY

Hasta la Vista, Barista!, $599

If you factored in how many lattes you buy each week and looked at the price of this machine, it’s actually not bad. But it’s also still $600 for an Espresso machine.

Oprah.com

Classic Long Vests, $245

These things are $245 and they don’t even have arms?!

Oprah.com

Neely & Chloe Market Totes, $298

We appreciate a good tote as much as the next person, but Oprah lost us when she described the bag as handy when you’re at the ‘Farmers Market.’ If we’re dropping $300 on a tote it’s not to be used as a grocery bag.

Oprah.com

GoBone, $199

We love dogs, but a line must be drawn at a $199 toy that plays fetch.

Oprah.com

Banner Tear-Away Track Pants, $178

We know a product is going to be out of our league as soon as it’s described as something Reese Witherspoon told Oprah about.

Oprah.com

Scented Candles by Joya, $189

We love candles, which is why we know spending $200 on four candles is a bad deal.

Oprah.com

The Sleep Shirt Blue Oxford Stripe Sleep Shirts, $230 – $300

So much for sleeping in the oversized t-shirt you got for free at your last charity walk.

Oprah.com

THINGS THAT WE CAN’T BELIEVE ARE ACTUAL PRODUCTS

Beehive Fatwood Crock and Bag, $150

This thing helps you start fires. You’re literally just burning money.

Oprah.com

Prepd Pack Lunchbox, $69

Lunch boxes are great, but for $69 it better come filled with food and wash itself out at the end of the day.

Oprah.com

Katz’s Deli Complete Three-Course Dinner for Four, $125

Celebrate Hanukkah or just enjoy a delicious meal from the famous Katz’s Diner without traveling to NYC? Well, that’s pretty freaking cool.

Oprah.com

THINGS WE DIDN’T KNOW WE WANTED UNTIL NOW

Novelty Cottage, Dutch Colonial, and Clubhouse Birdhouses, $91 – $200

I don’t even particularly like birds , but now I feel as though my yard is incomplete without these beautiful bird condos.

Oprah.com

Letters to Me, When I Grow Up, $15

Admittedly, there’s only a small likelihood that the children in my life will put down their iPads long enough to fill out even a single letter in these cute booklets, but I would have loved this book when I was little and I’m going with that.

Oprah.com

Julep Beauty It’s Whipped Limited Edition Lip Vault, $249

Anyone who wears lipstick knows that there are likely only two or three colours in this kit that will look good on one person, but also I don’t care and I want it.

Oprah.com

Contact-Free Snoring Solution, $299

Spending $300 on something that helps to decrease snoring sounds like a lot of money, unless you sleep next to someone who snores.

Oprah.com

BakerStone Original Pizza Oven Box Kit, $150

I don’t think I’ve ever actually made a pizza at home, but maybe that’s because I didn’t have a tiny portable pizza oven.

Oprah.com

Air-Fryer Toaster Oven, $199

Ditto for the French fries. They’re (kinda) healthy this way!

Oprah.com

Mayberry Sheepskin Slides, $60

Come on, you know they look comfy.

Oprah.com

THINGS THAT HELP OPRAH BUY MORE THINGS

“Wisdom of Sundays: Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations” by Oprah Winfrey, $28

There’s a reason Oprah Winfrey is a mega, mega millionaire and it’s not just because she’s one of the greatest talk show hosts of all time. She also knows how to sell products. The president of the OWN Network has her own personal gift shop filled with Oprah items, including a book she wrote…which she also loves.
