High-tech toys, beauty items and lounge wear make Oprah list

The Province - - LIVE IT! -

Oprah Win­frey has un­veiled her highly an­tic­i­pated Favourite Things list for 2018.

Each year, the me­dia ex­ec­u­tive puts to­gether an ex­haus­tive range of items she’s tried and tested her­self and pub­lishes them for fans in O, The Oprah Mag­a­zine.

For 2018, Win­frey has se­lected 107 prod­ucts that she rec­om­mends as hol­i­day gifts, with cat­e­gories in­clud­ing Cosy Things, Beauty Gifts, Fash­ion­able Finds and even Pre­sents for Pets.

“I go through ev­ery item, pick­ing my favourites and nar­row­ing the se­lec­tion to my own. It’s a process. Be­cause it’s im­por­tant for me to re­main as true to my orig­i­nal in­spi­ra­tion as pos­si­ble,” the 64-year-old said in a state­ment. “So, what are your gifts to give? We’ve all heard it’s the thought that counts. True that. But it’s also the in­ten­tion be­hind the thought. The great­est of­fer­ing is let­ting some­one know through your ac­tions and your words that they mat­ter.”

Among Win­frey’s top picks for out­fits to wear at home in­clude su­per-cushy Pudus slip­per socks, Eber­jey’s Gisele Long PJ Sets, Soft­ies’ Hooded Snug­gle Loungers, and Tory Sport’s Track­suits.

For beauty lovers, she is a fan of Sun­day Ri­ley’s Game Changer Kit, La Chate­laine’s Deluxe Hand Cream sets, Clar­isonic’s Mia Smart Luxe fa­cial brush and Julep’s lux­u­ri­ous Beauty Di­vine Shine Ul­tra-Hy­drat­ing Lip Gloss Col­lec­tion.

“I’ve sur­vived enough Chicago win­ters to know that this col­lec­tion of a dozen sheer glosses is a great gift for friends who are look­ing to keep their lips lus­cious from first frost un­til spring show­ers,” Win­frey said of the range of pink and berry red lip prod­ucts.

Mean­while, she also loves tech­nol­ogy items such as Aura’s Wi-Fi Smart Frames, Ap­ple’s Air­pods and Ama­zon’s Echo Spot, as well as great ac­ces­sories like Echo’s Faux Fur Vests, Justin Gre­gory’s Fin­ger­less Gloves and Un Bil­lion’s Lacy Totes which are made from ve­gan-friendly fab­rics.

While the more un­usual gift ideas in­clude Story Bikes’ Elec­tric Step-Through Bike, cost­ing US$1,850, an Em­bark Dog DNA Test Kit, and a Grow Your Own Christ­mas Tree Kit which is priced at US$45.

“Y’all know I love a good tree,” Win­frey said. “Plant the spruce seeds from this kit, watch them sprout into a lit­tle Char­lie Brown Christ­mas twig of a thing, and then trans­plant it out­side, where the sapling can grow big and strong — and be vis­ited for years to come.”
