Oprah’s favorite things list for 2014: Our top picks to save and splurge this holiday season
You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! OK, so maybe not, but we’re still jumping for joy with the annual release of Oprah Winfrey’s much-anticipated Favorite Things list, out just in time for the holidays.
The 2014 offerings include a whopping 72 options, with everything from headphones to body butter, tea sets to jewelry, bicycles to dog beds. And, of course, we want it all.
“I tasted, I tested, I sniffed, I touched, I lotioned, I potioned, I snuggled, I brewed, I steeped, I read, I shared, I dared, and then I did it all again…and again…and again!” Winfrey writes in the December issue of O magazine, which hits newsstands Nov. 11. “These wonderful things—large, small, glittery, or truffled (especially truffled)—are my favorite gifts to give and receive.”
We scoured the list, and came up with our three favorite finds for shoppers looking to save, along with three splurge-worthy buys. Santa, are you listening?

Fabulous Furs faux-fur coat
“Where fur is concerned, I never wear the real thing,” Winfrey writes of the coat she dons on the magazine’s cover. “Not only does this faux-fur coat feel like a cloud—the pockets and hood are lined in velvet, and the exterior is supersoft—but the midthigh length and ruching make it extra flattering.” Shopping tip: Enter OPRAH at checkout for 20 percent off. $499, fabulousfurs.com
