The Best of Oprah’s Favorite Things 2018

By Teresa Caruso

As many of you know, every year I share my top picks from Oprah’s Favorite Things. If you’re not familiar with Oprah’s Favorite Things, it’s basically a round-up of Oprah’s favorite gifts for the holiday season. It originated as a special episode of her show that would air each year around the holidays. Since her show has been off the air for quite a few years, she now partners with Amazon to continue sharing her top gift recommendations for the season. There’s always a few over-the-top picks, but for the most part Oprah’s Favorite Things consist of great products that your family and friends are sure to love. While Oprah’s list is a bit on the longer side, I rounded up my top picks from Oprah’s Favorite Things 2018 to share with all of you.

Oprah's Favorite Things, Oprah's Favorite Things 2018, The Best of Oprah's Favorite Things

1. Personal Security System | One of the coolest finds from Oprah’s Favorite Things, this personal security system attaches directly to your phone and features two alarms that you can activate incase of any sort of emergency. While it’s definitely a more practical gift, it’s something most people would seriously appreciate! *Click here to shop the personal security system*

2. Amazon Echo Spot | The Echo Spot is the ultimate gift because it can be used and enjoyed by many different people on your holiday shopping list. The Echo Spot can play music, read the news, answer questions, and set alarms. The Echo Spot can also be used to check the weather, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, turn on your lights, and even control your thermostats. *Click here to shop the Amazon Echo Spot*

3. Kid’s Suitcase | Most of my friends or family members with kids travel with their little ones often. These suitcases are too cute, and would make for an adorable gift. I love how it has a vintage feel, and it’s available in the prettiest pastels. I’d love an adult-sized one for myself. *Click here to shop the suitcase*

4. Nespresso Lattissima Espresso Machine | We actually put this espresso machine on our wedding registry months ago, so I’m happy to see that it’s Oprah-approved. It makes lattes in under 40 seconds, and can frothe the milk directly into your cup. We can’t wait to receive ours, and give it a try! I’ve heard only amazing things! *Click here to shop the Nespresso machine*

5. Bindle Bottle | What’s better than an insulated, leakproof, reusable bottle? One that also has a storage compartment for snacks or money. This would make for such a great gift for anyone in your life who is particularly active, travels often, or even commutes daily to work. *Click here to shop the bottle*

6. Blue Light Filtering Glasses | As someone who uses and loves blue light filtering glasses, I totally agree with Oprah on this one too! I particularly love that these are both reading and blue light glasses. *Click here to shop the glasses*

7. Eberjey Two-Piece Pajama Set | Eberjey makes some of the most luxurious pajamas, so it’s no surprise to me that Oprah included them in her Favorite Things. While they are a bit on the pricer side, the quality is unreal, and whoever you gift them to will be sure to appreciate them. *Click here to shop the Eberjey pajamas*

8. Sunday Riley Game Changer Kit | While I haven’t used these particular products, I swear by Sunday Riley. Her products are highly effective, and luxe. *Click here to shop the game changer kit*

9. Harry Barker Dog Spa Gift Set | As many of you know, our dog Merlin means the world to us, and we actually get him Harry Barker gifts all the time. This gift set is the ultimate gift for the dog-lover (or dog) in your life. *Click here to shop the dog spa gift set*

10. Decorative Journal | You can’t go wrong with a journal. It’s a great gift for a co-worker, neighbor, or friend. *Click here to shop the journal*

11. ‘Empowered’ Brass Bracelets by Maya J | These bracelets are my top pick from Oprah’s Favorite Things 2018. I love the message behind them, they’re beautiful, and they’re under $40, making them a great price for gifting. I love everything they stand for, and I think they’ll be a great daily reminder to whoever you gift them to. *Click here to shop the bracelets*

12. Carbonator | I am obsessed with carbonated beverages, so this sparkling water maker is right up my alley. If you have any sparkling water lovers in your life, this would make for the ultimate gift. The design is very luxe, which I love! *Click here to shop the Carbonator*

13. APL Techloom Sneakers | I believe this is the second year Oprah included APL in her Favorite Things, and rightfully so. APL sneakers are incredible! They’re made extremely well, comfortable, and it doesn’t hurt that there are a bunch of pretty colors to choose from. *Click here to shop APL sneakers*
