Nothing kicks off the holiday shopping season like Oprah Winfrey’s annual Favorite Things list. The media mogul has revealed her top gift-ready picks of 2022, once again focusing on small businesses, including “family-run, local makers, BIPOC- and woman-founded” companies.
This year’s selection includes 104 items for every type of giftee across a range of categories and budgets, with plenty of finds under $50. Among the items to score Winfrey’s starry stamp of approval are affordable stocking stuffers for beauty buffs, a slew of Hollywood-loved products (such as Therabody’s travel-friendly Theragun Mini 2.0 massager), gourmet gifts for foodies (think decadent chocolates and a cool spice grinder), fashionable finds from Girlfriend Collective and Sterling Forever, cool tech gifts from Meta and Ray-Ban and a range of investment items to treat the luxury lovers (or yourself).
The best part? Everything is conveniently available on Amazon, so you can add everything to one cart if your heart desires. If you prefer to shop beyond the e-commerce giant, many of the brands are celebrating with discounts of 20 to 60 percent off on their websites, including Laura Geller, Pink Picasso, Dearfoams, Paravel, Clevr and others.
See some of the best items from Oprah’s Favorite Things 2022 list below, and shop everything at Amazon here.

The connected device requires a mobile phone and wireless internet, plus a Facebook account and the Facebook View app if users want to share their content online.
