1Amazon Echo Show
My absolute favorite thing on Oprah’s list of favorites is the Amazon Echo Show. Not only does it pack all the cool features of the original Echo, it also has a 7-inch screen and camera that can be used to make video calls, be used as a security camera, as an intercom, and can even show you photos, videos, and flash briefings. The coolest part is that you can do all of this hands-free, with just the sound of your voice. It comes in black and white, and if you buy two, Amazon will take $100 off the price.
2Honey Can Do Herb Preserver
Honey Can Do Glass Herb Preserver, $30, Amazon
Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a novice cook like me, you will love this Honey Can Do Glass Herb Preserver. It can keep your herbs fresh for up to two weeks, and is designed to fit right inside your refrigerator door.
323 And Me DNA Test Kit
While on a journey to find your inner self, the 23 And Me DNA Test Ancestral Personal Genetic Service can help you get more connected to your past. The DNA kit requires just your spit and the postal service, and in six to eight weeks it can give you answers about your genetic origins, and may even help you find long lost relatives. It’s a pretty personal gift, but definitely one that can prove meaningful and fulfilling.
4The Good Hurt Fuego Hot Sauce Set
The Good Hurt Fuego Hot Sauce Sampler Set by Thoughtfully, $35, Amazon

5My Audio Pet Wireless Speaker
For the little monkeys on your holiday list, you can pick up these adorable My Audio Pet Mini Bluetooth Animal Wireless Speaker that come in a variety of different animal characters. You can use them alone, or pair two speakers to get more of a well rounded sound. They are portable and wireless, so you can use them at home or on the go.
6Cailyn Cosmetics Makeup Brush
If you are a makeup addict like me, you know that applying foundation with your fingers is a thing of the past. One of the best beauty items on Oprah’s Favorite Things this year is a variety of makeup brushes from Cailyn Cosmetics, including this awesome Cailyn Cosmetics O!CURVE Brush. It is designed for flawless coverage, and the unique upper curvature allows for blending in hard to reach areas like around your eyes and nose, while the lower curve can buff and blend on your forehead, chin, and cheeks.
When it comes to looking fabulous, Oprah has you covered. These sunglasses from Peepers will have you looking like a million bucks for under $25, so grab one in each style if you can. They have polarized lenses and offer a 100 percent UV protection, and they even come with reading lenses if you prefer. Who says readers can’t be stylish too?

If you love sorbet, look no further than this awesome Gourmia GSI180 Automatic Healthy Frozen Dessert Maker. All you need to do is put in your frozen fruit to get smooth, silky sorbet. So a no-fat, no guilt dessert every night, all for just $50? Bless your heart, Oprah.
