If you’re already struggling with your present shopping, turn to Oprah Winfrey’s no-fail roundup. The former talk show host has released her Favorite Things list every holiday season for the past two decades and 2021 is no exception. Just like last year, she chose to support and celebrate small businesses owned by people of color and women through her Amazon Gift Guide, featuring 110 of her most-loved finds.
From handmade ceramics to smart cooking utensils, Winfrey’s picks offer something for everyone (even an S.O. or sibling who claims they already have everything) and at an affordable price range (most are under $200). Here are the clever items we’re adding to our carts, you can view the full list on Oprah Daily’s website.
For the Tea Drinker
What better way to cozy up during a chilly afternoon than with a cup of hot chai tea? These four glass jars of hand-blended flavored teas are the ultimate gift for the coffee averse.The cardamom and rose combination is a great way to unwind once your holiday PTO kicks in.
For the Brunch Bunch
This morning staple does the job of cooking fluffy, stuffed belgian-style waffles, minus the mess (the bonus built-in tray allows you to scoop it out onto your plate without ever touching it with your hands). Also, there’s no cord in sight: It can be used on electric and gas stovetops, and even outdoor grills.
For the Hot Sauce Addict
Somali-Canadian model Ubah’s recently launched vegan hot sauces add loads of flavor to bland oven-cooked fish or homemade tacos. Plus, the packaging is so good, you don’t need to soak up precious cabinet space—they’ll look chic on your countertop.
For the Ambiance Obsessed Friend
The scents of these three best-selling candles are inspired by the verdant grounds at Flamingo Estate in Los Angeles. “Roma Heirloom Tomato,” once lit, is an experience in itself that will leave you wanting to DIY your own herb and veggie garden once spring rolls around.
For the Italian At Heart
The post-work aperitivo is the new happy hour. Dip a piece of rye bread in the Coratina olive oil, along with some olives, close your eyes, and you’ll practically feel the warm sun of Sicily on your skin.
