This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, please read our disclosure policy here

It’s Christmas time, and that means there’s an all new list of Oprah’s Favorite things for 2015. I have always loved Oprah’s Favorite Things in the past, but this year– This year I don’t really know what to think. I mean, she was the reason I tried Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Moisturizer all those years ago, and I still use it every day. But a fur collar for my dog? Who am I Cruella DeVille?

Oprah's Favorite Things

What is nice about this year’s list is that you can get it all on Amazon. Which, for me is huge since that’s the only place I shop. (They didn’t pay me to say that or anything, it’s just the truth.)

Oprah’s Favorite Things 2015

1. Let’s start with this grill. I’ve heard of a smartphone– here’s a smart grill? This is a thing? This grill adapts cooking time with the thickness of my meat. I feel like this grill already knows too much about me… and the thickness of my meat.

2. Uggs. Oprah, seriously? Uggs are on your favorite things list? Uggs shouldn’t be on anyone’s favorite list, except maybe Han Solo.

3. A Workout Shirt. A workout shirt? that makes me look like a character rom the Nightmare Before Christmas? Also, who wrote this copy? Shlumpadink? That is not a word it sounds like a character only Big Bird can see when he’s hallucinating on Sesame Street.Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.35.58 PM

4. Oh look, it has matching pants

gap matching pants

5. The Amazon Echo. Okay, you know what? Honestly the only way anyone is actually going to get one of these is if it’s a Christmas present, because I have been trying to justify buying one of these for a month or two, and I just can’t bring myself to do it.

6. Oprah’s very own meditation Kit. Obvious product placement is obvious. Come on Oprah, this is supposed to be about cool stuff I need to try… not about you selling me a CD of your soothing voice.

7. My very own pasta maker. Almost three hundred dollars for me to make my own pasta? For that price I could eat at my local Italian joint once a week for the whole year.

8. Up by Jawbone fitness tracker. You know what? I have one of these. I love it. It’s awesome.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.49.49 PM

9. Barbie Fashionistas. These are just Barbies. Nothing special about them at all. I have no idea how they made it onto this list.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.51.52 PM

10. Nespresso Coffee Machine. This is the sort of thing you used to see on Oprah’s old lists. Something quirky, and kitschy that would actually make a good gift for the coffee drinker in your life. Somebody get me this for Christmas.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.53.45 PM

11. Steak. I– what? I can buy steak on Amazon?

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.56.07 PM

12. Lip Gloss Set. These are pretty, they’re already sold out and it’s not even December yet, but they’re pretty. Also, note that Oprah has an eyebrow guru. How do I get an eyebrow guru?

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.58.20 PM

13. Jalapeno Jam. So, I am from Texas– I know Jalapeno jam is amazeballs, but there’s no way I am mixing Jalapeno and Huckleberry or Strawberry. Nope. Not Happening.


Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.00.30 PM

14. A Canteen. I can put a whole bottle of wine in this and it stays cold forever? I think this is on my favorite things list, too.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.03.18 PM

15. Oprah Hoodie. So, this is just a hoodie. Why on earth would this be on this list? Did they have a bunch in a warehouse somewhere they needed to clear out?

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.07.03 PM

16. Hot Sauce. I always get a weird amount of hot sauce for Christmas. I have no idea why, I don’t even really like hot sauce all that much. So, I will probably get some of this year. Thank you for the hot sauce.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.09.29 PM

17. Dog ornament. This is a 20 dollar ornament. Of a dog. Nobody wants this. Don’t order it. If you were about to buy this, take it out of your cart and get them a gift card instead. Your gift giving privileges have been revoked.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.11.57 PM

18. Pasta sauce. This is over forty dollars for two cans of ragu. I can’t. I just can’t.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.14.17 PM

19. Punny yoga nightgown. What is this? The part of the list where they think nobody is actually reading it, so they throw things like a SEVENTY DOLLAR T-SHIRT NIGHTGOWN? I think you can pick these up like five for ten bucks at Walmart, y’all.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.16.09 PM

20. Knife Block. These knives are super pretty, and I’d totally use them. My dad always says you can’t go wrong with giving someone knives for Christmas. (It sounds way less serial killer when he says it.)

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.19.45 PM

21.  Wireless headphones. So, I have wired beats, and I love them– but how would I ever keep up with these? Has anybody tried them? Do they come in pink?

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.52.06 PM

22. Stripey pajamas. Because sometimes you want to dress your family up like Waldo and take family pictures. Right?

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.55.08 PM

23. Panfortes. This is one of those things that you give to a hostess, and they’re like, “Oh thanks. I have ALWAYS wanted these.” But really they are thinking, “Next time just give me wine.”

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.57.00 PM

24. More punny night shirts. Didn’t we already do these? Come on, Oprah. We can see recommended items on Amazon, too.

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 11.58.49 PM

25. An instant printer. Don’t all printers do this now? What makes these so special?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.00.29 AM

26. Yummy smelly bath stuff. Now THIS is what Oprah’s list is about. Yes, please.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.02.12 AM

27. Gloves. Really? What is special about these gloves? That you can use your phone with them? That’s pretty much the same as any other gloves you can buy… anywhere.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.03.52 AM

28. Apple Watch. You know what? I have an apple watch, I totally bought into the hype, and I can’t figure out what to do with it. I mean, it tells time, so there’s that.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.05.45 AM

29. Ketchup. Thirty dollars. For Ketchup. Really?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.09.05 AM

30. Antler Beanie. There we go! My dog totally needs this. Doesn’t she?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.10.05 AM

31. Books. These are like, classics all prettied up. I guess if that’s something you are into, then this is an okay gift. For Two hundred bucks, though… I’d rather read them on my Kindle.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.11.32 AM

32. Kitchen Scales. I dunno, I don’t really like getting kitchen appliances for Christmas. Maybe I am in the minority?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.15.51 AM

33. More punny seventy dollar nightgowns. Sigh.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.18.51 AM

34. Crab cakes. so you can order steak AND crab cakes on Amazon. What rock have I been living under?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.20.35 AM


Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.22.08 AM

36. Oprah Tea. Of course Oprah has her own tea. Why would I ever think she didn’t?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.23.25 AM

37. The cutest boots I have ever seen. The only bad thing about these is that they don’t come in my size.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.26.50 AM

38. Brightly colored wallet. Because Oprah is all about those bright colors. They make us all seem SO happy!

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.28.15 AM

39. Pots and Pans. You guys, these pans have healthy vapor cooking. Which is… a thing.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.30.04 AM

40. Sacrificial golden chocolate icons. Blah Blah Blah, something something, golden cow Bible story, blah blah.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.31.36 AM

41. Crazy animal plates. Look, if someone doesn’t get me these for my kitchen, I will be heartbroken forever. In fact, I want this entire set of dishes. I need these to be my fancy China. I am making it happen, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.33.11 AM

42. The Bruffin. It’s like a Brioche/Muffin cross. I don’t really know what a Brioche is, but I’d eat this.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.36.11 AM

43. O Magazine Subscription. Well, I haven’t had a magazine subscription since 2008, so I don’t think I will be needing this any time soon.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.38.01 AM

44. Box of Flowers. Well, I guess someone would like this. Not me, but someone.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.38.47 AM


Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.40.44 AM

46. Letters to My… These are cute, thoughtful, well priced, and a perfect gift for lots of people on your list.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.42.26 AM

47. Doggie fur coat. Because dogs don’t already have fur… wait, nope– that officially makes this the most useless gift on this whole list.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.44.16 AM

48. Hair system experience. That’s a fancy term for shampoo, y’all. It’s shampoo.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.46.25 AM

49. More overpriced books. Come on! Books were meant to be read, nobody is going to read books that cost this much. Their whole goal is to sit there and look pretty. I can’t get behind this. I just can’t.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.47.58 AM

50. Fuzzy keychain balls. I don’t know what’s weirder about these, that they’re keychain balls, or that they don’t come in all the letters. That makes me BONKRS. (Get it?! It’s like if they didn’t have an E!)

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 3.17.31 AM

51. Foot scrub. This foot scrub is eighty-seven dollars. For eighty-seven dollars, it better turn my foot into a baby’s butt.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.03.06 AM

52. Black silverware. Eew! NO! That’s just weird. Although it would look really chic with my bird’s head dishes up there. Also, if it’s black and not silver, does that make it blackware? And, is that racist?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.06.18 AM

53. Weekend Bag. This bag looks like skin. Skin that is ribbed, for my pleasure.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.08.19 AM

54. Mason jar herbs. Get this for your Pinterest obsessed friend, although, she’s probably too busy repinnning stuff to have time to actually use the jars, so, there’s that.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.10.07 AM

55. Truffle oils. Oprah is all like “Hey, you can put this on your popcorn.” And I am just like, “Oh yeah, Oprah, because I am a baller who eats fancy popcorn. Shut up, Oprah.”

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.12.41 AM

56. Pie. Oprah seriously put a pie on her list. I like pie, but you know what? You can’t get it, it’s unavailable. They didn’t even make enough of these pies for us to buy them. Pleebs.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.15.01 AM


57. Carry-On Suitcases. These suitcases are 600 dollars. Have you seen what they do to luggage at the airport? Why on earth would I give them a 600 dollar piece of luggage to toss around? And I know it says these are carry-ons, but you KNOW that flight is going to be full and half of us are going to end up checking our bags anyway…

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.17.35 AM

58. Animal shot glasses. Oprah is into animal themed kitchen things this year. Also, is mollaspace something that I should know what is?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.21.39 AM

59. Truffle chips. More truffles. So fancy.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.24.46 AM

60. Cutting board with words carved in it. Because that is just what I need more nooks and crannies on my cutting board to scrub.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.26.44 AM

61. Basket of Turtle chocolate. Looks innocent enough, right? Nope– this sucker is ninety dollars. Ninety dollars for a basket of chocolate. I have stayed in hotel rooms that cost less than that.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.28.47 AM

62. Tiny bakewares that look like big bakewares. Okay, I am a sucker for tiny things that look like bigger things, so I would probably buy these.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.31.37 AM

63. Elvis cake. There is just something weird to me about getting a cake in the mail. Do people do that?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.34.15 AM

64. Oprah’s favorite sweatpants. You know what? I can totally respect that Oprah has her favorite sweatpants. I feel her. I once bought yoga pants in bulk from Old Navy and it was the greatest thing ever.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.38.01 AM

65. iPhone 6 Plus in Rose Gold. FINE Oprah, rub it in that I don’t have a plus in rose gold yet and you do. It’s hwatever. We can still be friends. Can I see your phone?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.42.03 AM

66. Gadget bag. I dunno, I kind of want this bag. I think it would make me feel uber cool. Right?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.45.10 AM

67. Cheese. Because nothing says “thinking of you” like a big box of cheese. Amirite?

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.47.12 AM

68. Giant rock earrings. Oprah! Seriously? These are the ugliest earrings I have ever seen. They look like something in one of those princess dress-up kits you get for three year olds!

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.49.41 AM

69. Confetti boxes. You know what? These are super cute and I totally love them, but I just can’t pay 50 dollars for three empty boxes. I could make these myself with some wrapping paper and an exacto knife.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.53.34 AM

70. Tower of candy. This is just candy. sixty dollars worth of candy. Do yourself a favor, skip this, go to CVS and pick up something for under ten. They will think that it’s the same thing.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 4.57.53 AM

71. Sunday sweatshirt. This is a hundred dollar sweatshirt that you can only wear one day a week. So, do what you want with that.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.02.28 AM

72. Lasagna pan. I love this pan. It is absolutely fabulous. I want it in every color. Okay that’s probably a bit of a stretch, I just want it in orange.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.05.22 AM



Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.09.07 AM

74. Salt. You can just give people salt for Christmas. I don’t recommend this.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.11.43 AM

75. Wireless Speaker. If you were about to spend 500 dollars on a cheese and knife set for a friend, get them this instead. It’s a way cooler gift.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.14.30 AM

76. Butter London Nail Polish.  I love this polish. It stays on longer and better than any other polish I have ever tried. My only real problem with this gift is that it has too many reds in it. Who wants that many red polishes? Oh, and that it’s already sold out. Boo.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 5.25.17 AM

So, there you have it. All of Oprah’s 2015 things in one place. Over all, there’s a lot of overpriced stuff here, but I have to admit that I totally want a few things from this list, too. What’s your favorite thing?
