It’s that time of year! Everyone is about to give thanks. So, let’s talk turkey about why I’m thankful. I’m thankful that Oprah Winfrey just released her annual list of her favorite things. I wait all year to see what Oprah has on her list so I can make my Christmas wish list.
Oprah’s Favorite Things 2018, which is celebrating its 22nd year, will be featured in the December issue of Oprah Magazine and includes 107 different gifts ideas. It’s the longest version of her list ever and features gifts ranging from $15 to $1,800. The items on the list span a variety of gift categories including cozy, family, beauty, travel, fashionable, kitchen, food, tech, home, eco-friendly, inspirational, and pet gifts.
Let’s be clear. I see plenty of things on this list that the hubby, my BFF, my mom, the kiddos, and various coworkers would love, but it’s really all about me. The list always has goodies that I want and some things I never knew I wanted. Oh yeah, I’m looking at you lobster mac & cheese and wireless charging tray.
And even though I’m not necessarily a pajama set person, Oprah has some on this year’s list that have me rethinking my night wear uniform of a t-shirt and comfy shorts. Maybe it’s time to step up my bedtime game – or least my lounging around the house apparel. Yes, I want that Softies Hooded Snuggle Lounger. It has the word snuggle in it. That automatically makes me happy.
If you’re a family that wants matching PJs for Christmas morning, Ms. O. has you covered there as well with adorable onesies for everyone big and small from Burt’s Bees.
Because it’s the holidays, I know I’ll be spending a lot more time in the kitchen. And I’m totally lusting after these gorgeous cutting boards. Even if I can’t cook like a chef, I can look good trying. My orange-colored kitchen is also not complete without a stylish, new hand mixer for all the cookies and sides I need to prepare this time of year. Plus, it’s from Black and Decker, so I feel like it’s a power tool for my cooking efforts.
Family and friends staying at our house for the holidays will also get a treat when I put these luxury sheets in guest room. I love making guest feel pampered so maybe I should also get them some bubble bath. Maybe I should get some for myself to help soak away any stress from the holidays. And of course, I don’t want to forget about my fur-baby. He could also use a spa day.
Basically, Oprah’s got me covered. I’m hoping that some of her favorite things will become MY favorite things.
