For Oprah’s Favorite Things in 2015, gift givers will be hard-pressed not to find some sort of appropriate item to give just about everyone on their list. From fashionistas to travelers to chefs and techies, Oprah has unveiled a nice assortment of gift ideas for under $100 or costing just a bit more. The talk show host and entrepreneur recently revealed these latest items to the world, and now the hunt begins to give them as gifts.
The Today.com site reported on Nov. 6 that among Oprah’s favorite things are several hot items within the technology realm. The priciest of the items is the rose gold Apple Watch, which is listed at $435, and makes for a decent fashion accessory with extra functionality built in for the wearer. There’s also the Amazon Echo, the latest device from the e-tailer which features “Alexa” interactive speaking technology that can play music, gives weather reports, sports scores, jokes, recipe info and much more. The Echo sells for $179 and works best for those with Amazon Prime.
Oprah Winfrey’s gifts don’t solely focus on tech items though. There’s also several items that can be found for under $100 and would make great gifts for moms, grandmas, wives, aunts, girlfriends or others. For example, the Footnanny foot treatment set sells for $81.60 and features various salts, a special eucalyptus cream and comfortable socks to wear. There’s a Kitchen Herb Kit for $54 which allows for growing basil, parsley and mint right in the kitchen. A Typhoon Vision Stainless Steel digital kitchen scale is a good gift for any chef or obsessive nutritionist. It goes for about $65.
Some of the other gift ideas given by her list this year include Barbie Fashionistas dolls for girls, Omaha Steaks Best Wishes Banquet, Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss set, and Burt’s Bees Baby Family Jammies. Oprah also gives a nod to Dr. Dre by including the Beats by Dre Powerbeats 2 wireless in-ear headphones, which sell for just a bit over $100 but are likely to be found on plenty of wish lists this season.
The complete list is at Amazon, with descriptive information on each item, as well as a special video featuring Oprah talking about her favorites. Based on the ideas seen on her latest list, this could be a very nice holiday season for many people receiving gifts that are fans of the talk show host and entrepreneur extraordinaire. With Black Friday sales already starting up and likely to continue throughout the month, it could provide some nice discounts on some of the choices.
