Oprah Winfrey is back again with a few of her favorite things. Well, more than just a few.
The media mogul’s annual Oprah’s Favorite Things list returns to signal the start of the holiday season, with more than 100 gifts included in this year’s guide, which specifically showcases small businesses.
This year’s list has plenty of options with 104 items, slightly less than 2021’s 110 items (her largest list since her 107 picks in 2018). Of the 104 gifts, 87 of them are from small businesses.
“This year, we’re celebrating small businesses – think family-run, local makers, BIPOC- and woman-founded, and more,” Winfrey said in an exclusive statement to USA TODAY. “So no matter who you’re shopping for – friends, spouse, favorite teacher, a new grandbaby – we’ve got something that will let them know how much they matter!”
Prices range from about $20 to nearly $1,000. At the lower end of the spectrum are items such as Maya J Jewelry Bracelet Hair Ties for $18, while items such as the Magnifica Evo Fully Automatic Espresso Machine costs about $900. The full list will be featured in the winter issue of O, Quarterly magazine (on newsstands Tuesday) and at Oprah Daily.
