Every year around the holidays, Oprah Winfrey stages her “Favorite Things” episode, in which she and her staff choose all their favorite giftable products—and as Oprah recommends them to her viewers, she also gives them away to the entire studio audience for free. This promo for the show only hints at the unbridled excitement that breaks out every time Oprah unveils a new gift.
This year, she’s recommending a bunch of stuff from Williams-Sonoma. The audience drooled over Perfect Endings Cupcakes, which W-S sells in sets of nine for $59 (a steep price that doesn’t include shipping). Oprah’s recommended melamine bowls, measuring cups, and spoons seem practical and cute (but not nearly as cute as the gaggle-of-geese measuring cups I spotted at Anthropologie).
Oprah also gave away KitchenAid stand mixers to her whole audience, along with Breville panini presses and an LG HDTV refrigerator packed with Ciao Bella’s blood orange sorbetto—so those lucky viewers can all continue to watch her show without leaving the kitchen. The fridge, which has 100 recipes stored in its HD screen, is priced at $3,799, making it an especially pricey present—unless, of course, Oprah is your homegirl.
