This Body Butter Set For Dry, Sensitive Skin
Made without any parabens or GMOs, this body butter set works great as a gift for a loved one — or even just as a gift for yourself.
As for why Oprah loves it…
“With all the washing they’ve undergone, our hands could use some hydration. This company uses Ugandan and Ghanaian shea butter to create nourishing creams. And the tin is just gorgeous.”
These Fluffy Slippers That You Can Wear Outside
Oprah says that “slippers are the new shoes,” and these even have sturdy soles so that you can wear them outside for quick walks to the mailbox. They’re also coated in soft, cozy faux fur that keeps your feet warm — just make sure to round down your size when purchasing if you wear a half-size.
You Can’t Go Wrong With A Good Head Wrap
Don’t feel like doing your hair today? Just tie it up in this wrap. Made from ribbed jersey fabric, it’s even long enough that you can tie it into multiple styles. Choose from gorgeous natural tones like chestnut, cider, clay, geranium, and more.
This Organic Tea Set With More Than 120 Servings Inside
Know someone who loves drinking tea? Oprah recommends this variety pack that comes with six different flavors: noms berry delight, zesty lemon ginger, peppermint devotion, cream of Earl Grey, cha cha chai, and English breakfast. There are more than 120 servings inside each pack, and $1 from every purchase even goes towards charities geared towards mental health.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Gourmet Coffee
Coffee is the one gift that pretty much everybody can appreciate, and this gourmet variety pack comes with three delicious flavors: Coltrane, Motherland, and King’s Price. Oprah loves this brand because the beans are ethically sourced from Ethiopia, then roasted here in Oakland, California.
These Leggings Without A Seam Running Down The Middle
Full disclosure? I prefer my leggings without a seam running down the front since it gives me a camel toe — and these are not only seamless, but they’re also moisture-wicking. Sweat away in these at the gym or yoga class, and they’re even high-waisted so they look great with tons of tops.
A Nail Polish Set That’s Completely Vegan
Not only is this nail polish set completely vegan as well as cruelty-free, but the natural shades complement any skin tone. But the best part? It also comes with a hydrating green tea cuticle oil to keep your nails from drying out when the weather turns cold.
A Gorgeous Platter For Serving And Decoration
There’s just something about whipping out a charcuterie spread that makes you feel fancy, but trust me — putting it on a gorgeous platter like this one will make you feel like a millionaire (and mine isn’t even half this nice.) Oprah loves it for serving up everything from miniature cupcakes to hors d’oeuvre, and it’s even handmade in Ghana.
This Pair Of Gourmet Salts For Anyone Who Loves To Cook
Love a good steak? Then you’ll definitely want to check out this pair of gourmet salts. And when I say gourmet, I’m not kidding — according to Oprah, “The red grains in alaea salt get their color from baked clay and make a fine finish for any dish, while the dark grains in black lava salt come from volcanic charcoal.”
In other words, throw these bad boys on some meat and watch them enhance any dish!
A Coffee Mug Made From Stainless Steel
Ditch your ceramic coffee mugs and upgrade to these stylish ones. And don’t be afraid to drop them — they’re made from stainless steel that won’t break, and the sip-through lid even helps prevent leaks. Oprah likes that they’re also triple-insulated, which helps your hot coffee stay toasty for up to three hours.
This Air Fryer That Uses Way Less Oil
A regular fryer requires a ton of grease to get your food cooked, whereas this air fryer delivers the same deliciously crispy texture using just a fraction of the oil. You can also use it to dehydrate foods to create potato and fruit chips — but if you don’t care about fries or chips? Oprah raves that “This magical appliance can bake a cake, grill a burger, crisp up a mango slice, fry a chicken, and roast a pork tenderloin (thanks to a built-in rotisserie.)”
These Fake Eyelashes Made With 100% Mink Fibers
Most fake eyelashes aren’t reusable unless you’re really careful — except for these. Developed by professional makeup artist Derrick Rutledge, these lashes are designed to complement all lash textures and eye shapes. Each order also comes with hypoallergenic lash glue, as well as applicator tongs.
This Knife Set Made From Swedish Damasteel
Recommended by Oprah and designed by Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, these knives are made from Swedish Damasteel that maintains a sharp edge through hundreds of slices. The handles are contoured for a comfortable grip, and the walnut knife block is almost too chic — I’m already picturing it on my countertop.
These Hoodies Designed By A Double Amputee
I could go on and on about these oversized hoodies, or I could just let Oprah explain why she’s so obsessed with them:
“Leave it to the college kids to come up with an inclusive sweatshirt. Hunter Woodhall is the first double amputee to receive a Division I track scholarship, and he and his business partners have designed a roomy unisex hoodie (in fun tie-dyed shades) made to fit one and all.”
This Coffee Machine That Every Caffeine Addict Needs
Coffee? Espresso? Cappuccino? No matter what you’re in the mood for, this coffee machine can handle it. The brushed stainless steel exterior looks oh-so-chic in any kitchen, and besides — the handy touchscreen makes you feel like a real professional as you select your grind, shot, and temperature preferences.
A Protein Powder Made From Plants
From my experience, protein powders made from plants just taste better than others — and apparently, Oprah agrees enough to say that she “can’t get enough of these plant protein powders.” The blend of vegetables and herbs helps you get through the afternoon without snacking, and they can even help detoxify your system while improving digestion.
This Winter Jacket That Won’t Break Your Bank
A good winter jacket can cost hundreds of dollars, whereas this one is available for just $50. “Don’t be fooled,” Oprah explains. “Just because this jacket is lightweight doesn’t mean it won’t keep you or your loved one warm. Water-repellent and filled with ethically sourced down, it’s an excellent (and affordable!) fall-into-winter coat or layering piece.
This Conditioning System For Curly Hair
Curly hair needs extra moisture to maintain its shape — otherwise, it turns into a frizzy mess. So if your hair could use a little extra hydration, give this conditioning system a try. The organic jojoba oil spreads from your roots to your tips to help keep dryness, frizz, and even split ends at bay.
This Kit That Lets You Grow Herbs Indoors
Take it from someone who has a black thumb instead of a green one: an indoor herb kit like this one is a lot of foolproof fun. And if you don’t care what I have to say? I’ll let Oprah take over from here:
“I’ve leaned into gardening lately, and now I’m going greener with this clever collection made exclusively for O. Each three-jar set comes with all the fixings to sprout pizza toppings (like basil), cocktail-friendly herbs (like mint), or microgreens. Your next dinner party will thank you.”
A Shopping Tote That’s Undeniably Stylish
Tired of carrying around that ugly reusable grocery bag every time you’ve got a ton of stuff to haul around? Upgrade to this shopping tote. Made from vegan leather, Oprah loves it because it’s the “perfect size for work or weekend.” Choose from dark olive, cream, and navy colors.
These Face Masks From Tory Burch
Made with moisture-wicking fabric, these face masks from Tory Burch are a fashionable alternative to those ugly disposable ones. There’s also a slot where you can insert an extra filter if you want. Each order comes with three, as well as one travel pouch to keep them all together.
This Card Game That’s Fun For The Whole Family
It may sound a little edgy, but Black Card Revoked is tame enough to play with the whole family (up to six people.) The questions center around black pop culture, with some examples including “How long should a woman tolerate her man’s unsuccessful rap career?” and “Which song is a staple at the family cookout?” As the name suggests, if you get too many questions wrong, you might just have your black card revoked.
These Lipsticks Designed To Complement Any Complexion
You can’t go wrong with these lipsticks, as the colors are designed to look great with nearly any skin tone. Each order comes with three: two shades of brown, as well as one pink. They’re all semi-matte, and the formulas are completely vegan — “I will be wearing the Nude LaLa shade daily,” writes Oprah.
A Fleece Bathrobe With A Stylish Cinched Waist
Most bathrobes make you look like a walking refrigerator — but not this one. Oprah loves that the panel in the back “gives it a waist-cinching effect to keep you from looking like an Oompa Loompa. Plus, the sash is sewn in, so it won’t slip away.”
Everybody Needs A Good Crossbody Bag
I’m absolutely in love with crossbody bags — not only are they harder to mindlessly misplace when you’re out running errands, but they’re just large enough for my phone, keys, and wallet. These are made from 100% vegan leather, and there are tons of colors to choose from dark mauve, brown, mint, and others.
A Paint By Numbers Kit To Help Melt Away Weekend Boredom
Got time to kill on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Bust out this paint by numbers kit. It comes with all the supplies you need to paint a gorgeous Parisian scene, and besides — it’s less than $50. When was the last time you found a piece of high-quality wall art for that price?
This Slouchy Turtleneck Dress For Lounging Around
Made from ultra-soft ribbed knit fabric that’s lightweight without being too breezy, this slouchy turtleneck dress is a must-have for any lazy day at home. Oprah recommends pairing it with leggings or tights while you’re at home, but you can even throw on a pair of jeans to run a quick errand if you want.
A Delicious Crate Of Cookies Made Without Preservatives
You only need to pop these cookies into the microwave for 12 seconds to get them tasting as fresh and hot as they did when they first came out of the oven. Each one is made without any preservatives, and they come in delicious flavors like peppermint hot chocolate, maple pecan, gingersnap cheesecake — no wonder Oprah’s a fan.
This Emergency Preparedness Kit For Any Situation
2020 has proven that you can never be too prepared for anything, so why not grab this emergency kit? It comes with everything that four people would need to survive for up to 72 hours, and the bin is also waterproof so you don’t have to worry about it getting wet. Wet wipes, emergency drinking water, ponchos, blankets — this kit truly has it all.
This Photo Autobiography By Tina Turner
Oprah calls this pictorial autobiography “a fitting tribute to a true legend” — “The icon herself helped compile the powerful 320-page collection, which tells her story through portraits by photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, illustrations by fashion designers including Bob Mackie, and notes from friends.” Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of Tina Turner, readers can still appreciate her extensive career and influence on music.
A Television That’s Designed For The Outdoors
Sometimes I like to do my lazy indoor activities outside in the nice weather. Enter: this outdoor television. It’s weather-resistant against wind, snow, rain, and more — plus, it even has Alexa built into it so you can control it using voice commands. Unlike other televisions, this one also features anti-reflection technology to prevent annoying glares.
These Suede Mules Handmade In Kenya
Available in sand, brown, mustard, and indigo, these suede mules are made from genuine Kenyan leather with a vulcanized rubber sole for durability. Oprah explains that “after creating a center for children with disabilities in Kenya, two pastors (one from Kenya, the other from Texas) went on to start Ubuntu Life, the company behind these smart-looking suede mules handmade by local women.” That means by purchasing these shoes, you directly help support someone’s full-time employment in Kenya — what’s not to like?
A Pullover Made From Soft Bamboo Fibers
“I’m a sucker for anything that feels like a second skin,” Oprah explains. “I got to test this duo last year, and I’m excited that it’s now available. Made with fibers derived from bamboo, the pullover and pants are durable, breathable to help keep your body temp just right, and, of course, oh-so-soft.” Wear the joggers separately from the pullover for a quick trip out of the house, or even put them on together while you lounge around the house.
This Chocolate Set That’s Ultra-Indulgent
You don’t have to love New York City to love this set of chocolate bars — you just have to like chocolate. Each set comes with two dark chocolate, two milk chocolate, as well as two white chocolate bars. Oprah recommends putting them in stockings, or even giving away the whole set as a gift.
This Set Of Spices Created By A Professional Chef
Oprah says that the fried chicken seasoning should be declared “a national treasure,” which sounds so delicious that I immediately added this set of spices to my cart. Each order comes with five blends: fried chicken seasoning, Moroccan spice, cinnamon coffee rub, raging cajun, and jerk. And if you aren’t sure how to use them? Just take a look at the recipe cards that come included to help you get started.
These Earrings That Are Less Than $50
The best gifts are the ones that look more expensive than they are — like this set of cute earrings. They’re hypoallergenic so that you don’t have to worry about your skin turning green, and Oprah says that they’re a “modern way to bring some elegance to every day.”
These Tote Bags With Uplifting Messages
Made from 100% cotton canvas, these tote bags are great for everything from beach towels to groceries. Each one is made right here in the United States, and there are multiple printed quotes to choose from. Oprah explains that “I was drawn to Toni Morrison’s quote, you are your own stories, and asked the brand to add to the mix Maya Angelou’s much-needed wisdom: when you know better you do better.”
