The Cheapest Gift Ideas From Winfrey’s List

Oprah Winfrey has introduced her list of Favorite Things for 2020, listing 72 items that she loved throughout the year. The full list of items is featured in the December issue of Winfrey’s magazine, “O,” which will hit newsstands on Nov. 17.

For this year’s list, Winfrey selected most of the products from Black-owned or Black-led companies.

“Because so many people want to support Black lives any way they can, we’ve found dozens of absolutely gorgeous gifts from Black-owned businesses that deserve to be celebrated, because we believe Black lives—and Black businesses—matter,”  Winfrey said about the list.

While many of the gifts that Winfrey selected range in price upwards of $3,500 for the Terrace TV, we’ve picked the cheapest gift ideas from her list that are priced under $30. Here’s some of the most affordable gifts from Winfrey’s Favorite Things 2020 collection, which can all be purchased on Amazon.

Ryan Simkhai “Loulou” Reading Glasses

Priced at $29, Winfrey picked these reading glasses as her “number one accessory.” She said the readers “come in great colors and flattering shapes, with scratch-resistant lenses for those of us who tend to leave theirs facedown on the nightstand.”

Corkicicle Mugs

These Corkicicle mugs start at $27.95, depending on style, and come in a range of colors. Winfrey picked the mugs because she said she first fell in love with their stemless wineglasses and wondered what the company would come up with next. The answer? “A stainless steel, no-slip, triple-insulated mug that keeps your latte or lemon tea toasty for up to three hours, of course!” Winfrey said.

Pat’s Rib Place BBQ Sauce Gift Set

With a $24 price tag, this BBQ sauce gift set is ideal for the barbecue lover. Winfrey said she chose the sauces because they are from an original family recipe.

Rockin JR Ranch Jams

Jam lovers will want to get their hands on this spicy gift priced at $20. The jam set features a strawberry jalapeno and peach-raspberry habanero jam, which Winfrey said is “perfect for people who like a hot breakfast.”

Stella and Haas Pearl Earring Set

Even jewelry made it on the under $30 list. These pearl earrings sell for $29.97 and come in a three pair set, which Winfrey said was ideal for gifting and keeping a pair or two for yourself. The earrings have freshwater pearls and are hypoallergenic.
