Oprah's Favorite Things List 2013 Revealed
Beats Studio Headphones, luxury organic cotton pajamas and bottled wine from Target are just a few things off this year’s edition of Oprah Winfrey’s annual holiday list, “Oprah’s Favorite Things.”
As to be expected, Oprah’s list of holiday treats has everything, from the fashionable, yet useful accessory, like iPhone cases that can charge your phone, to the extravagant and arguably unnecessary – a $225 candle from Neiman Marcus.
The list, which appears in the newest issue of The Oprah Magazine, provides insight into the life of Winfrey as well as plenty of gadgets and food to drool over. Here are some items from the list, and what they reveal about Oprah herself.
For example, Oprah doesn’t always drink tequila, but when she does, she takes shots with these Himalayan Salt Shot Glasses:
“I prefer my tequila chased with salt and lime, and these shot glasses – carved from high-quality Himalayan salt – are perfect, no extra salt necessary,” Oprah writes.
Another one of Oprah’s favorite things: her thin watch. At just $2,900 you can match Oprah’s Rado True Thinline Jubilé Watch. “I like a watch that’s easy to wear and easy to read,” Oprah writes, adding that she wears it “year-round.” Complete with mini-diamonds, it’s one of the priciest items on the list.
For the more frugal, Oprah’s list includes fun ‘Sweater Mugs’ and jewelry boxes from West Elm and $13 red wine from Target. Personalized purse mirrors round out the list of cute and useful accessories and are described as “the ultimate stocking stuffer.”
The majority of the list is made of up food items and electronics, such as a kitchen tablet full of recipes. Some of the food items are even Christmas themed, such as a chocolate Nativity scene, but the majority of the items on the list are not explicitly holiday themed.
“You’ll be profoundly changed by this meditation experience that I created with my friend Deepak Chopra. Whether you’re a first-time meditator or have been doing it for years, this master trilogy – available via CD or download – will help light a path to your most abundant destiny,” Oprah writes.
Though Oprah traditionally gives out her favorite things to her television studio audiences around the holidays, this year, Oprah is reaching out to her fans through her magazine with “The 12-Day Holiday Give-O-Way,” starting Nov. 14.
Hopefuls must submit their names online with a unique code (found in the magazine and on the official website) if they want to win all 60 items on the list. Readers are allowed to submit their names once every day from Nov. 14 to Nov. 25, when twelve winners will be chosen.
For those of you who don’t win, many of the items are available at a special discount for Oprah readers.
