If you’re anything like us, you wait each year with bated breath for Oprah to release her favorite things list (because if it's Oprah-approved then it must be good, right?). Yet, while we’re definitely coveting Op’s Revolution Toaster and Cashmere Travel Wrap, another celebrity dropped a list that’s just as swoon-worthy: Drew Barrymore. For those who don’t know, Barrymore launched DREW Magazine last year where she features lifestyle products, advice and how-to’s from those in the know (including herself). And the most recent issue—which highlights 100 hand-picked gifts from beauty to homewares—is definitely giving Oprah a run for her money this year. So below, find 10 items (which all happen to be under $70) that we’re coveting from the collection. 

Oprah's Favorite Things List Just Landed & We've Got Some Holiday Shopping to Do

JVN Hair

“My hair was fried…it felt like it could just snap and break,” says Barrymore in an Instagram video. “Until I found this serum,” she says. “Every time I wash my hair, I take a good amount and furiously work it through the ends, front, top and side…If you constantly put heat on your hair and let it towel dry [with this serum], it’s going to save your hair. It saved mine.” Sign. Us. Up.

Just as beautiful as it is functional, this electric kettle is a must-have for anyone who likes to start their mornings with a warm cup of tea. It can boil up to seven cups of water in under seven minutes, and its one-touch preset programs ensure that every cup is brewed to perfection. And don’t even get us started on the stunning contemporary colorway options, which include matte black, cornflower blue, merlot, oyster grey, white icing and sage green (our personal fave).

Here, an anti-aging mask by Charlotte Tilbury that can target dark circles and loss of firmness (all while using cruelty-free ingredients). The 10-minute reusable mask uses ice technology and cryotherapy to create visibly lifted, refreshed and revived skin—and after an eight-week study of 120 people, 99 percent agreed that their skin looked younger when used in conjunction with Charlotte's Magic Serum and Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum

With 100 “real-life” recipes that split between weekday and weekend cooking, it makes sense why Barrymore loves this cookbook. It features everything from quick stovetop suppers, one-pot meals and salads for dinner to lazy lunches, simmered stews and hands-off roasts that are ideal for weekend grubbing. Two birds, one book.

As a nod to her directorial debut of Whip It, it makes sense why Barrymore would be coveting an adorable set of roller skates for her kids. The skates can be used inside at the roller rink or outside on the sidewalk—and it even includes safety features like adjustable toe stops and smooth-rolling wheels as an added bonus.

Glow Recipe

ICYMI, we asked 54 people to give us their favorite beauty product of all time, and Sarah Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of Glow Recipe, says this night treatment is the ticket. “Not only does it provide gentle exfoliation, but it also has firming benefits from the peptides, brightening effects from the niacinamide, and it delivers deep hydration from the hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract,” she explains.

Don’t let the compact, 5-inch size of this mini projector fool you; it’s way more powerful than it looks. The device projects a 60-inch display with high resolution and includes a remote control, built-in speakers and HDMI ports that allow you to connect to all of your favorite streaming platforms. Perfect for anyone who’s looking to upgrade cozy movie nights by the fire this season.

Trying to recreate a look from one of Barrymore’s favorite films? Barrymore crafted this E.T.-inspired eyeshadow palette to help you do just that. Think: eight crease-proof shades in matte and metallic finishes that emulate Gertie’s playful yet edgy vibe.

Compact enough to fit in your back pocket, this 35-millimeter camera is a great stocking stuffer for anyone who loves photography. Not to mention that you’ll be hard pressed to find a more fashionable film camera at just under $40.

Finally, something for the artist in your lift. This handcrafted watercolor set features 36 pigments that were inspired by nature (think: lush greens, dark neutrals and earthy reds). Plus, it comes with a protective sheet that not only keeps your pans from shifting but can be used as a palette mixer as well.
