Oprah Winfrey is so skilled at choosing presents (every holiday season—for the past 18 years!—she releases her Favorite Things list) that the instant popularity of her picks has been dubbed the Oprah Effect. This year she’s using her influence to support Black-owned small businesses through a curated landing page on Amazon, featuring 72 finds.
From artisanal honey to cashmere cardigans, Winfrey’s choices offer something for everyone (and with her stamp of approval, you know they’ll love it). Still, with such a large number to choose from, it’s understandable that you may need a little direction. Read on for Team Domino’s five favorites sure to wow this December.
For the Caffeine Fiend
As any parent will tell you, the key to getting through a morning of unwrapping is a steaming cup of joe. This stainless steel espresso machine with a ThermoJet heating system reaches prime temperature in only three seconds, making hectic days all the more bearable.
For the Home Chef
No matter their skill level, every budding cook needs a Dutch oven that can go from stovetop to oven to table. Gift this ruby red option—designed by our Fall Style issue cover star, Ayesha Curry—which has a stain-resistant enamel finish for easy holiday-meal cleanup.
For the Flavor Fanatic
Adding salt is one of the simplest ways to boost flavor, and this luxurious set takes it to a whole new level. Both the black lava and alaea sea salts are packed with electrolytes and have less sodium than the regular version.
For the Homebody
There’s nothing like curling up on the couch after a long day of festivities. A lightweight cotton blanket will keep you warm during a midday nap when a roaring fire isn’t available.
For the Tenderfooted
Extra-fluffy slippers are a must-have for chilly season, and a cross-strap makes this pair super-secure.
