Oprah's Favorite Things List Is Full of Great Holiday Gifts. Here Are the 10 Best Ideas Under $50
It’s that time of year again — the Queen of Media, Oprah Winfrey, has just anointed an eclectic grab bag of products as her Favorite Things for the 2019 holiday season.
As usual, there are some stunners on this list of 79 items, with price points to match — there’s a $1,600 exercise bike, for instance. But there are plenty of lower-priced goodies, as well, for kids and pets, for gift-giving or just to treat yourself.
So if you're looking for great holiday gift ideas, you're in luck. Here are our 10 favorite Oprah Favorite Things under $50 — and most are available with Prime free shipping on Amazon.
If you see one of Oprah’s Favorite Things that you like, it may be wise snap it up sooner than later. As you might recall from last year, many of these items, especially those that are made by small companies, sell out fast.
