Get Stuff We Love
Santa’s list may include who’s naughty and nice but Oprah’s list tells us the perfect gift to buy!
The official start of the holiday shopping season kicked off on November 2nd with the annual unveiling of Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2017. This is the 20th anniversary of the gift guide, and we can't get enough of it. From blueberries to birdhouses, there's something for every single person on your list.
In November, TODAY editors scoured the list of 102 items and found our favorites. In December, Oprah challenged us by finding even more amazing items to add to her Favorite Things (check the full list out here). New items and old, here's what we are shopping for right now.
TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.
