Oprah’s Favorite Things 2022 list finally dropped. In case you haven’t heard about it, every year weeks before Christmas, Oprah Winfrey compiles a list of her favorite items from the past 12 months. It always comes just in time for holiday gifting, and you can expect to find cool tech gadgets, home decor, and fun board games. 2022 marks the 20th year of this tradition, and Oprah’s list includes 104 gifts this year.
For this year’s list, Oprah focused on celebrating local and small businesses, including BIPOC- and woman-founded businesses. I scoured the list to see what she loved that I might love and found out that a ton of the products cost $25 or less.
Here’s the full list of her favorite things you can shop on Amazon, but below we rounded up our top favorites under $25. Also, for more holiday savings, make sure to text BLACKFRIDAY to 57299 so you don’t miss any deals.
These handmade coasters ($24.99, Amazon) make the perfect gift for someone who just moved or had home renovations done. Customization is free, but you have to pay $6 more if you decide to go with the walnut finish instead of maple. Since this is custom, expect an extra two or three days for shipping.
Adjustable Cell Phone Stand
For the teen whose phone is permanently attached to their being (so basically, every teen), gift a phone stand ($9.99, Amazon) to help them film their TikToks. This one’s compatible with all versions of the iPhone 14, 13, 12, X, and XS.
