    Oprah *just* released her *~Favorite Things~* list for 2018, and it's alllllll on Amazon! So we've rounded up some of the coolest things on it under $50.

    Now you can live your best Oprah life, but not on an Oprah budget.

    1. A pair of Pudus thermal boot socks to keep your tootsies toasty when out and about in the chilly air, snow, sleet, or rain.

    Price: $19.99 (fits women's sizes 6–10 and available in seven patterns).

    Also available in men's sizes, kid's sizes, and a tall version for knee-high boots in women's sizes.

    Looking for an at-home version? Last year, one of Oprah's favorite things were the Pudus sherpa-lined slipper socks (with silicone on the bottom to prevent slipping!). Get then from Amazon for $24.99.

    2. A rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a FIVE-FOOT cable to power up the whole family's devices on the go. No more fighting, kids!

    The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device you're plugging in, and charging it as fast as the device will allow.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in eight colors)

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things I think I have ever bought. I got this for a family vacation where there is always a fight over who gets to charge their phone. This gave everyone the chance to use it and having the part that reaches to the backseat was PRICELESS!!! My son could charge and play at the same time, which was lovely. I highly recommend this to parents with more than one child!!" —Leigh-Anne L.

    3. A three-row lasagna pan so you can prep different recipes at the same time. Families with a mix of vegetarian eaters, carnivores, and tomato-haters? This is for you.

    It's also great for meal prep so you can eat one row and easily freeze the other two. And of course, you can use it for other foods too, like brownies (some rows with walnuts, some without!), bread loaves (banana! zucchini!), and more.

    Price: $18.19

    Promising review: "Best pan EVER! Cuts down on cooking time and it comes out perfectly. I can make regular, eggplant, and a veggie lasagna all at the same time to please my family of 8! You can mix and match and this pan cuts the cook time in half. Love it love it love it! And it's dishwasher safe." —Heather

    4. A stylish and compact crossbody bag with built-in credit card slots (that are also RFID-protected) and a main compartment for your phone, glasses, and lipstick so you can find everything you need at a glance.

    Amazon, AMazon

    Plus, the lightweight design won't dig into your shoulder, making it the perfect travel purse.

    Price: $19.99 (available in 22 colors and patterns)

    Promising review: "It is a great little bag to just throw on and go!! It can hold my cell phone, my credit cards plus the little extras like lipstick and keys. This bag is great for errands and running around to my kids' sporting events. The feel of the bag is great and seems quite durable. I will be buying a couple of these bags for my teenage daughters!!" —zammama

    Or if you can’t give up that ~large purse life~, an LED-lit organizer you can move between handbags and never leave anything behind.


    YES, it really does light up inside so you can find what you’re looking for in no time flat. Press the button inside to turn it on, and it’ll shut off automatically in 60 seconds.

    Price: $42 (available in nine colors)

    5. A pair of Peepers blue light–filtering reading glasses so you can read from your Kindle, tablet, or computer screen without squinting *and* prevent digital eye strain.

    Price: $25 (available in strengths 1X–3X and six colors)

    6. A letter-writing kit with everything you need to write letters of appreciation to all the most important people in your life.

    Each letter has a prompt (think "It was incredibly generous of you to..." or "From you, I learned the importance of") — just write your letter for the one of your choice, tear out, seal in the included envelope, decorate with the included stickers, and give or send in the mail!

    Price: $16.02

    If you're looking for similar ideas, they also make versions tailored to a specific person — books of letters to your parent, child, grandchild, significant other, and even your future self. Check out the full selection on Amazon!

    7. A bottle of Truff, a black truffle and agave nectar hot sauce (I'm already drooling) for the perfect combination of spicy, sweet, and savory you'll want to drizzle on *all the foods!*

    It's made with ripe red chili peppers (to reach a Scovillle heat index of 2,500-3,00) and infused with black truffle oil from Northern Italy and organic agave nectar from Jalisco, Mexico — plus a hint of cumin.

    Tbh, if you don't like truffles, this is not the hot sauce for you — then you can opt for the kit of *seven* hot sauces that Oprah chose for her favorite things list *last year*!

    Price: $17.98

    Promising review: "An extraordinary exquisite manner in which to add the rare aroma of the truffle and the perfect amount of heat to a dish. It has become a flavor that has become my favorite. My description of the aroma would be a sweet pepper that was grown in the dark and watered with champagne. The flavor is subtle yet so perfectly complimentary that is like a secret I want to hide." —Kim

    Let's talk flavors: it's available in nine, including cream cheese–frosted ginger spice (pictured), sour cream coffee cake with caramel, triple chocolate fudge (with either ganache or PEPPERMINT BUTTERCREAM), red velvet, key lime, and more. I'm suddenly starving.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite go-to journal. The book stays open when you write, and closes completely afterwards. The quality of the book is fantastic, and I have purchased several so I don't run out. There are other books just like it with different quotes on as well. I HIGHLY recommend this! Lines inside are college ruled. I also like the satin ribbon that is attached that you can use as a bookmark." —Reader63
