First off, Oprah has a lot of favorite things. Each year I eagerly await Oprah’s Favorite Things list because I am certain I will like almost all the things. Can I afford all the things? Not even close, this is why I take Oprah’s list with a grain of salt. However, we all trust Oprah, right? Certainly, if she says I need a pizza oven, I must need a pizza oven.
I always skim the list, looking for just the right item. But before clicking on the list, I actually sort by under $50. Each time, my favorite items disappear. But this time, I was pleasantly surprised. Two items remained. A $14 “A Great Thought A Day” notepad and a $45 “Gratitude Jar” which does include the cute little note cards. My favorite is the Corkcicle Stemless cups for $24.95. These cups can be used hot or cold and are super cute. There are a lot of great colors, but you only get one for $25 and it’s just 12 oz.
But in all seriousness, Oprah does list items that I may not have known about and does make my eye twinkle just a bit. Like… The Smart Nora Snoring Solution.
If you sleep with a snorer, you’re going to love the Smart Nora. It eliminates the need to elbow someone in the ribs to get him or her (him!) to stop. The battery-powered Nora senses snores and gently pumps air into a pillow insert, shifting the snorer’s head and neck to help him breathe easier (quieter!).
I sleep with a snorer, this sounds amazing and might just grace the top of my Christmas list this year. I think I’d also enjoy the Julep Beauty It’s Whipped Limited Edition Lip Mousse Vault. You get 26 amazing lip colors in a handy case. Not every color is my favorite, but my girls would go crazy getting to try on so many fun colors.
And lastly, the 23andMe DNA Test. This is something I think that would make a great gift for those families who have everything. Even our family has wanted this but I think we’ve been a little scared of what the results might say. But still, a fantastic gift.
So, what is your favorite thing on Oprah’s list? Check out her full list on Amazon.
