Holiday Gift Ideas: Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2023

Every year, Oprah comes out with a list of her favorite things, and I always like scrolling through her picks to see what she recommends. It’s fun to think about what one of the most famous women in the world uses in her own life, even though, in reality, she probably has people on her team choose the items for her, LOL! Her list got me thinking that some of the items from Oprah’s favorite things list for 2023 would make great holiday gift ideas for some friends and family members on my list, and I thought you gurls might like to see them as well.

Holiday Gift Ideas from Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2023

Initial Necklace

Necklaces make great gifts for any female in your life, from a preteen granddaughter to your sister to your BFF! This one comes in gold or silver, but I think gold is still trending right now, so I shared that version. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, check this one out that I’ve been sharing for years because it’s such a great, affordable necklace.

Brouk & Co The Capri Everyday Stripe Tote

If you have a lot of daily essentials like a laptop or tablet, umbrella, water bottle, etc., then you need a tote bag with plenty of room! This canvas one can go with you from everyday wear, or you can take it to the beach or on a short overnight trip. It also comes in a gorgeous camel stripe that I love!

Spanx Half Zip

You gurls know that I am a big fan of Spanx clothing, and I love that they’re releasing other things besides compression garments. I have this half zip in black, and it is too cute! You can wear it with jeans, leggings, or purchase the matching pants from Spanx like I did, and create a head-to-toe look. If you aren’t a fan of the orange, you can also grab it in several other colors. I just saw that it is available in burgundy, so that is a gift that my husband is buying me! I’m sure he won’t mind. Hahaha!

Softies Solid Marshmallow Reverse-Seam Lounge Set

I know SPANX can be expensive. I love all their clothing, but it comes with a hefty price tag. This lounge set is half the price but looks extremely cozy. I just ordered it in this blue color, so I’ll find out how it fits and feels soon. This reminds me of a Barefoot Dreams lounge set I own. I hope I love this one as much as my Barefoot Dreams.

Mali+Lili Lola Beauty Bag Duo(Tan)

I love it when I can find an inexpensive gift that is also practical. Every woman I know could use this vegan duo bag set. There are so many uses for this set besides makeup. I like having small pouches like this to keep items separated in my large totes. Plus, the drawstring bag would make a super cute crossbody.

Saysh The Felix Running Shoe

Sneakers are still all the rage, especially white and cream ones! Have you ever heard of this brand of shoe? I hadn’t before spotting them on Oprah’s list, but they were apparently created by an Olympic champion named Allyson Felix. They are supposed to have amazing support and comfort, which is what I’m looking for in tennis shoes!

Bossy Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick Gift Set

You gurls know I love a good beauty gift set (You can see some others I shared recently here), so you know I had to share this one from Bossy Cosmetics! You can grab a single color for $25, but with this gift set, you get 5 lipsticks for around the price of 3 individuals! I love cracking open sets like this to use them as stocking stuffers or add them to various gift baskets.

32 Degrees Shirt Jacket

Are you still a fan of shackets? I am still loving them for 2023. This one would look cute open over a tee, but it could also pass as a regular lightweight jacket buttoned up for cool days. Plus, I love all things quilted! I am sharing the navy, but you can get it in black and green, as well.

Crux Digital Toaster Oven

I’m totally at the age where I get excited about new kitchen gadgets, HA! This digital toaster oven looks great. It has 10 culinary functions: Toast, Bagel, Air Fry, Broil, Bake, Pizza, Cookies, Dehydrate, Warm, and Reheat. This would be a fabulous gift for a child or grandchild who’s living in a dorm room or maybe for someone who just became the owner of an RV!

Hot Chocolate Trio Gift Set

Here’s one for the hot chocolate lover in your life, a holiday gift exchange party, even for the person you just don’t know what to get this year! It comes with three flavors: Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, and Jamaican Hot Chocolate (Cocoa Tea). You could even have a fun hot cocoa and cookies party with your girlfriends, kiddos, or grandkids this holiday season!

Charcuterie Board

If you have a friend who loves to host, this is the perfect gift! Charcuterie boards are so fun to eat off of, but I think they are so hard to make. This board has a guide printed right on top of it to make creating a gorgeous charcuterie board an absolute breeze. You could even bring it to a holiday party as your food dish and then leave the board as a gift for the hostess!

Stylish Water Bottle Carrier

Ohhh, this is such a good idea, gurls! If you like to walk around your neighborhood, the park, the zoo, a theme park, etc, then you know carrying around a water bottle can be so annoying. Count on Oprah to share a functional and fashionable find like this. It even has a zippered pocket for your car key, cellphone, credit card, etc.
