It’s here! And by “it” we mean Oprah’s 2023 Favorite Things, of course. Every year, as the holidays approach, Oprah Winfrey rounds up her favorite things just in time for everyone’s shopping to kick into high gear. As per, we could use a heavy sprinkling of all the joy this thoughtful curation brings. And, 2023’s list is all the more remarkable because many of her picks are from small businesses owned by entrepreneurs who identify as Black, women, or people of color.
As fortune might have it, all of Oprah’s favorite things are available on Amazon, so you can order them and, on most of them, get Prime two-day shipping — which is ideal for any last-minute, procrastinating shoppers. And what better excuse is there to start your holiday shopping early than “Um, Oprah told me to?” Of course, while the friends and family you’re shopping for will love these gift ideas, you’ll probably see some items you want for yourself, so you might as well slip two of everything into your cart, just to be safe.
While the items on Oprah’s Favorites Things always include cookware, home goods, and pet-themed accessories, we’re, of course, most interested in her beauty and wellness picks. Read on to see how to pamper yourself like Oprah and dole out some seriously great gifts and sets to your loved ones. (And check out the complete list at oprahdaily.com at your leisure.)
