It’s that time of the year again! I’m talking about the holiday season, of course. And with the holidays also comes Oprah's annual Favourite Things list!
Oprah’s Favourite Things of 2016 is a hefty list – 104 items to be exact – and it offers something for everyone. The list of must-have shopping items features everything from decadent desserts to fashion accessories.
Naturally, I had to scour through the list to find some top picks. Read on to discover my top items from the list:
Peoni Cleanser, Toner and Cream
A skincare line from Montreal has made it on to Oprah’s Favourite Things list and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Baptized Peoni, the line was launched by Jennifer Brodeur, Founder & CEO of JB Skin Guru. The line is free of toxins, artificial fragrances, and gluten. Oprah says get it and “get ready to glow!"
Orbit Key Finder
Surely, I’m not the only one who constantly losses her keys and her phone. This key finder which works with your phone is perfect for busy women on the go. "Attach an Orbit to your key chain, download the free app, and find your keys with your phone (at the push of a button, Orbit chimes loudly). It works in reverse, too: Press a button on Orbit to find your cell—it rings even in silent mode. Genius," Oprah says.
The Original Pasta Pot
Does anyone eat more pasta than me? The answer is no. The Original Pasta Pot has a built-in strainer, which is simply genius! "I took a look at this aluminum cookware with a lock-on lid and built-in strainer and had just one question: Where have you been all my life?" Oprah says.
Foot Nanny Rose Foot Treatment Set
I’m all about self-care and what better way to treat yourself than with a Foot Treatment Set. I can think of a lot of women who would appreciate this as a gift this holiday season. The kit includes soaking salts, a rich cream, and a pair of spa socks. "There's a reason Footnanny has made the list three years in a row: It's just incredible! Founder Gloria Williams and I sniffed so many scents before settling on rose and rose-lime," Oprah says.
Hardie Grant Coloring Book with Bright Ideas Colored Pencils
Adult coloring books are so relaxing (especially with a class of wine). Oprah agrees: "Iyanla recently gave me a few adult coloring books, and filling in the blanks has become one of my preferred ways to de-stress. Who knew? Besides being just plain fun, these three will help with mental agility, focus, and inner peace."
Major Moto Boots
Another Canadian brand that made Oprah’s list is Sorel. The Major Moto Boot with plaid detailing is one of Oprah’s favourite (good taste). "Love, love, love! I’m in a plaid phase right now, so the tricked-out lining is the cherry on top of these revved-up moto boots," Oprah says.
RBT Wine Decanter
The wine accessory of the season is the RBT Wine Decanter. Once again, I can think of a few people on my holiday list who would love this. "Winter is red wine season! The aerator in this decanter removes impurities from the wine while the funnel oxygenates it. Translation: bigger aromas, more flavor. I’m buying this for the red wine drinkers in my life," Oprah says.
Beatriz Accessories Clutch
Fashion for a cause – what a great idea for the holiday season! "These thread-appliquéd clutches are made by women in developing communities in the Philippines and inspired by the country’s eye-catching fabrics. The perfect complement to an LBD, am I right?", Oprah says.
