It's officially the holiday season, because Oprah's 2023 Favorite Things list has arrived, and it's as spectacular as we'd hoped for. The highly anticipated list set its sights on highlighting BIPOC-, women-, or veteran-founded companies. There are a slew of genius gift ideas for everyone in your life, whether it's friends or significant others, family, kids, and more. In fact, in the official guide, there's specific sections for cozy gifts and engaging gifts that are thought-provoking. This year's roundup has an overarching theme of purple in honor of the upcoming "The Color Purple" movie, which is in theaters Dec. 25.
The majority of the gifts featured on Oprah's annual list are from small businesses — so you can feel good about your purchase. You'll discover cozy pajamas, kitchen appliances, genius tech gadgets, and plenty more that have Oprah's seal of approval (and a few of them are vetted by our editors, too). There's truly something for everyone on this list. Shopping for the chef? Get them a set of gourmet truffle-infused condiments from Truff or an indoor/outdoor pizza oven from Ooni. Looking for a unique gift for the bookworm on your list? Treat them to the editor-backed Kindle Scribe or Oprah's reflection journal for book-lovers. You can also shop plenty of pamper-worthy, cozy must haves, like a luxurious candle, a soft throw blanket, a sock set from Barefoot dreams, and so much more.
We know the struggles of last-minute shopping, so get ahead of it this year to make for a stress-free holiday season. These presents will sell out in a matter of days, so purchase them while you can.
