Exclusive: Oprah Winfrey shares her largest favorite things list ever for 2021. See her picks
It's officially time to start getting into the holiday spirit! Oprah Winfrey is back with her list of favorite things – and it's her largest one yet.
The annual list returns Monday for 2021, and clocks in at a whopping 110 items. This is her largest list since her 107 picks in 2018; 2020's list had 72 gifts, slightly shorter than 2019's 79 selections.
Winfrey's understanding that people need to be cozy after another hectic year is clear from her selections, which also "(celebrate) small businesses, women-owned brands, and items created by people of color," Winfrey said in a statement.
“After this past year, I think we all deserve some surprises and delights for the holiday season,” Winfrey said. "That’s why we worked hard to find these truly delightful items."
The list includes affordable picks as well as big-ticket options, with items priced from $12 (for brightly colored eye shadow palettes from The Crayon Case) to $2,295 (for a Hydrow rowing machine, plus $38 per month tacked on for membership), and more than 40 products for under $50. The list will be featured in the winter issue of O, Quarterly magazine (on newsstands Nov. 9) and at OprahDaily.com.
"You’re bound to find something for everyone on your list," Winfrey said.
We rounded up these 11 essential items from the list:
