Of Oprah Winfrey‘s many talents, the one she is most famous for is inarguably her penchant for gift giving. The media mogul is so good at choosing presents for other people that the instant popularity of her picks has been dubbed the Oprah Effect. As you probably know, every holiday season (for the past 17 years!), she releases her Favorite Things list. This year, you can shop her go-tos through a curated landing page on Amazon

Winfrey narrowed the e-commerce site’s seemingly infinite offerings down to a total of 79 products, spanning white truffle hot sauce to liquid eyeshadow from Lady Gaga’s new makeup line. Still, if you’re in a gifting rut, scouring the range of nearly 80 items can still be overwhelming. Looking beyond the espresso machines and flannel pajamas, we combed through her selection for the absolute best. We’ll be giving these three finds to everyone we know come December:

The Aesthetically Pleasing Wind-Down Activity 

This 500-piece picture of the sky at dusk will keep the whole family busy after a hectic morning of unwrapping (Winfrey also likes the wildly difficult–looking night version). Pair it with puzzle-proof Mod Podge if you want the memory to last.

The Multipurpose Mantel Accessory

These vintage-inspired cloches come in handy when it’s time to light the fire (the bottom features a strike), but when the matches run out, you can also use them to display all sorts of small collectibles, like seashells or dried flower buds.

The Dry Bar Game Changer

In lieu of a pricey bottle of liquor, gift this all-in-one infusion vessel (it lets you filter aromas of fruits, spices, and herbs into spirits for one-of-a-kind concoctions) to the aspiring bartender in your life.

Let the pre–Black Friday shopping commence!
