Oprah’s Favorite Things 2013 - (& a few of mine!)

Oprahs Favorite Things 2013 (& a few of mine)

It’s always great fun when the list of Oprah’s Favorite Things is released. Some are purely decadent, others purely practical. This year, Oprah has 60 picks which a $79 chocolate cake, layered with salted caramel truffle cream, a pair of $300 Ugg boots, and $13 red wine in a box from Target!  All of them will be in the December issue of O magazine which will be in stores on November 12th. 

However, there’s no need to wait, the complete list of Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2013 is already available online.  By the way, she calls this her “ultimate, ultimate list of her favorite things.” According to Oprah, that’s because this really does have something for everyone on your shopping list.  See if you agree.

Some other Favorite Things 2013 - not on Oprah's List.

I thought it might be fun to come up with a list of Debb’s Favorite things for 2013. Naturally, as an EcoBroker/Realtor®, you might know my list includes some great property buys in

My Favorite Things Do you have a few favorites, not on Oprah's 2013 List?

OprMy favorite thingsah's lists are pretty fun to peruse, and many of us miss watching her TV audience reap the benefits of getting one of EVERYTHING on her list. Oh to have been a member of the audience during those special holiday shows.

Nice list!  Thanks for sharing.  I love the Pickwick & Weller T-shirts, although the steak knives look pretty sharp!

Debb, thanks for sharing Oprah's list! I have to say I'm totally stumped by "Bouncing Woollies" on your list...some sort of dancing sheep perhaps??

Hi Debb - My quickpick would be the headphones from Oprah and the woode iPhone fly-fishing cover from your list. Gotta remember that one for Mary for Christmas.

Great list Debb.  I always love Oprah's favorites because they come in a range of price points and I love your idea of the dryer balls to save energy!!!

Thanks again Marti. I understand about the chocolate thing - and yes, I saw that lovely musical instrument on Facebook. Love it.

Love both lists---yours and Oprah's.  I'll have to try Oprah's tea.  I am for all things eco-friendly too.

Hmm Frankly I like Debb's list a lot more than Oprah's. I will have to try to find those Cree light bulbs. I like the lot you highlighted but of course who could afford to buy it and build a home? Not us I am sure. I will suggest.. Have a great weekend.

What I love about Oprah is her influence.  All the things on her list will experience a spike in business.  I love that kind of power, and not only that, but she absolutely does not take kick backs or gifts for doing so.  I love her integrity.  One of these days, we are going to meet her.

Debb's list is all good and wonderful,I love your list,the night lights..and the chocolate cake, I would rather spend that money on chocolate that is 85%.  We found an Italian chocolate that made us swoon with chocolate headiness, and also one in Paris.  Neither ship, so that means we may have to go back and restock.  Have a great weekend.

Debb, This brought to mind how my children's stepmom and step sisters were on Oprah's final show. They all won Oprah's favorite things including new Volkwagen Beetles. I like your favorites and they would make some really good Christmas gifts.
