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

    1. A portable Sony Bluetooth speaker so you can bring your jams on the go with total ease. It's waterproof (and dust-proof, who knew?!) and has 16-hour battery life so the party won't stop.


    Aaaaand extra bass for great sound!

    Price: $33 (available in five colors)

    Promising review: "OMG! This is awesome for such a small machine. Sound quality is really good. Not quite as deep as my Bose mini but very comparable. Really didn't expect that. Especially for the price! Bought it off the Amazon truck, and man was that easy. Give it a try. AND I'M PICKY" —Karen Spencer

    2. An emerald-cut cubic zirconia eternity band you're going to want to wear every single day. How gorgeous is the rainbow one?!


    They'd look great stacked, too!

    Price: $48 (available in sizes 6–10 and six colors)

    3. A trio of gourmet mustards for a foodie gift that really ~passes mustard~ (sorry, not sorry). It comes with classic, sweet & hot, and jalepeño flavors you might just want to put on everything.


    Price: $16.80

    4. A Haus Laboratories' (aka Lady Gaga's makeup line!) liquid shimmer eyeshadow for an effortless party-ready makeup look in just a few quick dabs.


    Price: $20 each (available in six colors; or get the set of six $96 for some savings!)

    Promising review: "I am blown away by this eyeshadow. It’s so good I just ordered a back up one!! I am so, so impressed by how smooth the application is. It looks great and doesn’t clump, blends so smoothly, and is extremely easy to apply. I know it’s expensive, but it’s definitely worth it!" —Megan Forbes

    5. A Studio in a Box arts and crafts kit jam-packed with tons of supplies to unleash any kid's creative side. The next big ~artiste~ is waiting to be discovered!


    It comes with over 60 items: a set of colored pencils and drawing pencils, markers, acrylic and watercolor paints, crayon discs, a sharpener and eraser, paint brushes, canvas boards, paper pads, and the carrying case (of course). It's great for ages 6+ — but I don't blame you for buying it for yourself.

    Price: $39.99

    6. Or a paint-by-numbers kit designed for grownups to create a realistic floral masterpiece worthy of hanging up. Everything's included: a canvas, brushes, acrylic paint, and a map in case you need to find a number you've missed.


    The peony one pictured above? I just can't!!!

    Price: $42 (available in 10 designs)

    7. An impossibly cozy double-sided blanket in a stylish pattern you'll want to cuddle under all! winter! long! Hellooooo snake print.

    And you can throw it in the washing machine for easy cleaning!

    8. A set of two stoneware brie bakers so you can whip up an ooey-gooey appetizer *perfect* for holiday parties. Talk about being a host with the most!

    9. A two-in-one cosmetics AND jewelry organizer that'll make a perfect gift for anyone who loves to travel (including a gift for yourself). It has space for all your makeup, plus a specially organized compartment for rings, earrings, and more.


    And a mirror build right in!

    Price: $48 (available in seven colors)

    10. Truff white truffle hot sauce made with chili peppers, agave nectar, and coriander (I'm already drooling) for the perfect combination of spicy, sweet, and savory you'll want to drizzle on *all the foods!*


    Last year, Oprah featured their original black truffle hot sauce, so you might want to try that one too!

    Price: $34.99

    Promising review: "I can't believe I spent 35 bucks on hot sauce...but its worth every penny. I put it on pastas, meats, veggies, eggs, popcorn, you name it. literally any savory dish you wanna spice up. Truff is my go to sauce brand. The flavor is incredible with just the right amount of heat. will definitely buy again." —Justin Carper

    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 in 2017!

    11. 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.


    I personally don't need glasses but notice a big difference when I wear my blue light–filtering ones!

    Price: $25 (available in no magnification or strengths 1x–3x, and six colors)

    12. A reusable silicone to-go cup with a no-drip lid and lightweight design. It won't affect the flavor of your beverage, and it's BPS, BPA, phthalate, and latex-free too!


    Price: $11.99+ (available in four sizes and eight colors).

    13. An insulated stainless steel water bottle that'll make you feel like singing "She's Like a Rainbow" whenever you remember to stay hydrated.


    Price: $19.99 (available in the two designs pictured above)

    14. A stunning match bottle you can display next to your favorite candle for a pretty piece of decor that also makes it easy to light when the mood ~strikes~. (Get it?)


    Price: $48 (available in four colors)

    15. Lavender-filled plush slippers you can warm up in the microwave so you can cozy up and relax at the end of a long day. Ahhhhhhh.


    Price: $19.99+ (available in four styles)

    Promising review: "These slippers are so much nicer than I expected! They are super soft and silky with just the right amount of grain. They're not super heavy with it but there is still enough to heat the slippers well and provide a nice feel. The seller shipped them very quickly. I'm very happy!" —ButterRum

    16. A Baggu reusable tote so you can ditch the plastic bags whenever possible. They fold down compactly so you can keep a couple in your car or bag super easily!


    I have a couple of these, and they're really sturdy, lightweight, and all-around great.

    Price: $12+ (available in 34 colors and patterns, or get a three pack for $36; available in nine sets)

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about these bags. I have seen imitations out there but none are as good as the Baggu. Baggu bags hold a lot and are very strong. To me, one of the best features are the long handles that allow me to carry a full bag over my shoulder; easier for carrying purchases into the house. I have a bag of Baggu bags in the car and carry them with me into the store so that I am saving on paper bags. Even if I get the paper bags, I can fit quite a few into a Baggu for ease carrying them in. so that my hands are free to unlock the door. I have tried a few of the similar ones, but as I said, none are as strong, as roomy and as easy to carry as the Baggu brand. This bag has been a life saver for me as I had a stroke in 2010 and carrying bags in my hands can upset my balance; over the shoulder works great." —Karen B.

    17. A pair of long, colorblock touchscreen gloves, because being able to text that you're running late (me, at all times) when it's freezing out doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style.


    The length means they're great for wearing with coats with shorter sleeves, too.

    Price: $44 (available in three colors)

    You can also get them in a short glove design for $35.

    18. A set of extra-wide glass drinking straws that'll make it way easier to sip your extra-thick morning smoothie while still ditching the plastic.


    They come in a set of five (plus a cleaning brush), and they're color-coded so you can make sure you don't pick up anyone else's bevvy!

    Price: $14.95 (also available in regular width for $12.95)

    Promising review: "I love drinking out of these straws they just make drinking feel better for you since you don't have any plastic! I love that they have the little colors on top! I drink my juices from this straw and even if I let it sit in there overnight it is easy to clean." —Tshas

    19. A super-challenging 500 piece puzzle of the sky at dawn perfect for any jigsaw enthusiast — whether they're a morning person or night owl.


    Also available in the sky at dusk and nighttime!

    Price: $25

    20. A Piedaho fruit pie for an award-winning addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table. I'm seriously drooling just looking at this photo of their salted caramel apple pie.

    Price: $47.50 (available in four colors)

    23. A Trailblazer tee for any little feminist in the making, with illustrated portraits of icons like Mae Jemison, Susan B. Anthony, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    24. A festive nutcracker tin filled with sea salt caramel truffles, because WHOMST doesn't want to eat one of those at this very moment?!


    It comes with a dozen chocolates, both milk and dark — all made with sea salt harvested on ~Île de Re~ a French island on the Atlantic coast. FANCY!!!
