Oprah’s Favorite Things

Oprah Winfrey loves to give. She graciously signed off today after 25 years of daytime television and nearly a decade of her audience-swooning Favorite Things. The blog Jezebel estimates Oprah gave $23,809,050 worth of products since 2002. Not every gift stood the test of time — like Dell’s Pocket DJ MP3 player and J.Lo’s velour sweatsuit — but most have. Let Oprah be your guide for your next gift.

  1. Hi Gift Giving Guy,

    That is one impressive list! Wow! How did you pull all that together? You don’t have to really tell me, just amazing to see.

    I also really like your college gift finder. That’s a great idea.


  2. Hi Beth,
    Thanks! From one detailed listmaker to another, that’s high praise. Most of Oprah’s Favorite Things I collected from different spots on oprah.com. I sorted them into categories and searched for the most recent links. Then I omitted some discontinued products like Cliff and Buster macaroons, Perfect Endings Cupcakes from Williams-Sonoma and VIETRI Water Garden Tea Service (although you could get a set on eBay). And thank you for your kind words about College Gift Finder.
    Thanks, GGG
