The holiday shopping season starts now — at least according to Oprah. Oprah's Favorite Things 2023 list just dropped and to no one's surprise, it's full of incredible gift ideas that run the gamut from budget-friendly picks to luxe finds — all tried and tested by the media maven herself.
Some brands are all-new discoveries, while others like Corkcicle and Footnanny are repeats from years past. You'll find beauty, style and home goodies galore, along with some toys and games for the kids in your life. Need something for your hard-to-shop-for dad? Go with these hot sauces, which Oprah says "deliver lots of flavor without blowing your head off." As for your mom? She'll get plenty of use out of touchscreen-friendly gloves in the months to come.
Below, we've rounded up the 12 best picks under $50 so you — and everyone else — can live the Oprah way without breaking the bank.
Turn your pet into a work of art with this customizable paint-by-number kit. Instead of submitting a photo of your furry friend at the time of purchase, simply scan the QR code, select a photo and print your design when you’re ready to paint.
Show off your sense of style with these lovely checkered gloves, available in pink, orange, brown and black. The thumb and index finger are touchscreen-friendly, so they’re as functional as they are cute.
Fire up your tastebuds with this set of five celeb-approved hot sauces. While the condiments certainly bring the heat, with flavors like Collards & Ghost (Lizzo's fave), they’re also a sneaky way to get in your veggies (well, kind of). Hot Ones fans may even recognize some bottles — Garlic N Peperoncini, the No. 1 bestseller, made a cameo on Season 14.
“Is lukewarm tea anyone’s favorite? I don’t think so," said Oprah of these gorgeous glass mugs, designed by two sisters. The double-walled design keeps drinks hot until the very last sip — without burning your hands in the process.
Mild winter days call for a "packable little shacket," said Oprah (aka part shirt, part jacket). Between the quilted details and snap pockets, it looks incredibly luxe for the price. Also in blue and black.
Get two vegan leather bags for the price of one. Great for travel, the small pouch is just the right size for makeup and fits inside the larger drawstring one, which transforms into a stylish crossbody thanks to the removable strap.
When your toes need some TLC, turn to the Footnanny (developed by Oprah’s very own pedicurist Gloria L. Williams) for help. Since scheduling an appointment with Williams may not be in the cards, you can bring her treatments home with this pedicure kit, complete with her protein-packed foot cream, soak, dry buffer and nail essentials.
Oprah shared her love of Corkcicle in 2012 — and the brand just debuted a new design that she adores. Unlike others on the market, this cutie is made to fit in most cup holders and the triple-insulation keeps drinks cold for up to 12 hours (and hot up to five). Oprah is a fan of the lavender, but there are 14 other options to pick from.
A couple years back, Oprah raved about the Head Lightz hats for adults and now she wants the rest of the family to jump on the light-up beanie bandwagon. Little adventurers can use the built-in headlamp for up to eight hours before recharging and adjust it between three brightness levels.
"These readers look so great that Gayle wore a pair to the Beyoncé concert," raved Oprah. Though we couldn't all snag a ticket to the Renaissance tour, we can grab these adorable cat-eye readers, available in four different color and pattern combinations. They also work as blue light glasses, so even your bestie with 20/20 vision can use them at 0x magnification strength — just like Gayle.
This creamy, opaque, buildable tint can be used on both lips and cheeks for a flattering flush that'll stand the test of time (and the elements). According to Oprah, the multistick can be a "lifesaver."
