In 2003, Oprah Winfrey surprised everyone in her audience with a 15 GB iPod. In 2004, she gave everyone a Pontiac G6 (yep, everyone got a brand-new car). In 2005, everyone got a Burberry coat and purse, a pair of UGGs and a Blackberry. She’s a generous woman, and you probably remember sitting in front of your television at some point, seething in jealousy because you weren’t in the studio audience on a random calendar day that was chosen to be Oprah’s Favourite Things day.

But those days are over. Her daytime talk show is done, and so are those moments when audience members were asked to “look under their seats” because “you’re getting a Breville panini press, and you’re getting a Breville panini press, and you’re getting a Breville panini press.” No more Breville panini presses for anyone. Well, unless you buy ’em yourself. In 2015, Oprah is continuing her favourite things, but the format has changed. She has partnered with Amazon, and instead of giving people free stuff, she’s making suggestions. So, you can spend your money on these things, and Oprah basically guarantees recipients will love ’em. But will they really? The picks are so underwhelming. Take a look.
