Looking for the Perfect Christmas Gifts? Take Oprah’s Advice.
For several years, Oprah Winfrey has selected products she considers her favorites. From food to fashion, high tech to low stress, Oprah showcases her favorite things on her website and then gives you the chance to buy them through Amazon.com.
This year, she chose 104 products. Over 1/3 of those products are priced under $50. You don't have to make Oprah's salary to afford these items and many would make great gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people on your Christmas list.
Here are some of the items that caught my eye.
Bialetti 7265 Trends Collection 5 Quart Pasta Pot
I make a lot of pasta at my house. This pot lets you strain your food with a twist and lock lid without messing up a big colander. Less dishes! I love that idea.
Canary Flex HD Security Camera
No, I'm not paranoid that someone is messing around my house. But, when I'm away from home for a weekend, I get worried about my cat (yes, I'm serious). I'd like to see if Miss Kitty is getting into trouble, and this would be the perfect device. It can also be setup outside.
Relax Slippers by Vionic
My feet are always hot, so I go barefoot all the time in my house. I learned a hard lesson this past Thanksgiving. I was on my bare feet for over 12 hours cooking and cleaning and my feet were killing me! I needed some support. Since these are open-toed, they wouldn't be super hot and they have an orthotic footbed.
Floating Pearl Sterling Silver Earrings
I rarely wear earrings and have had my ears pierced three times because the holes keep closing. I think earrings feel too heavy. These earrings look so lightweight and they are super cute. I would definitely wear these. Guess I'll be making a stop at the Mall to get my ears pierced...again.
Oprah’s Poinsettia Flower Pot Cake
I would never buy a $165 cake, but this looks GOOD! It's chocolate cake layered with vanilla mousse. Two of MY favorite things. Time to start looking at Pinterest to see if I can make one myself.
