Oprahs Favorite Things List 2023 UNI
McKenzie Cordell for PureWow

While there's some debate as to when the holiday season officially kicks off, we'd say that the arrival of Oprah Winfrey's annual gift guide is our cue that the most wonderful time of the year is upon us. And now that Oprah's Favorite Things list for 2023 has dropped, we're happily pulling out our holiday decorations, planning our Christmas dinner and, more importantly, whipping out our cards to get some Oprah-approved shopping done. From a cozy lounge set ($139) to a super sleek pizza oven ($999), Oprah's latest list is filled with must-haves for everyone.

In other words, she's thought of you, me and just about anyone else on our shopping lists when she curated this collection of items she swears by. We've certainly never been disappointed by her recommendations, and we don't think you will be either, especially regarding the items below. Here are ten of the best buys from Oprah's Favorite Things list for 2023. Honestly, the hardest part will be deciding which item to buy first.

Best Gift Overall

1. Softies Solid Marshmallow Lounge Set


Oprah says, "The softer, the better," and we couldn't agree more. And what's softer than a marshmallow? Perhaps this polyester and nylon lounge set that's earned its namesake by being *so* plush and cozy. Once people find out how comfortable this set is, we have no doubt it will fly off the shelves. And when shoppers discover the drawstring bottoms have pockets? Well, good luck finding it in your size. So, "if you want loungewear that is attractive and on-trend," per one buyer, you'll want to scoop up this set fast.

2. Rebecca Allen Leather The All Weather Boots

Rebecca Allen

Hoping to add a new pair of boots to your seasonal collection? Look no further than this sleek leather pair that Oprah herself says she loves to wear with jumpsuits, long skirts and dresses. Between these boots' beautiful smooth leather, cozy flannel lining and chic, minimalist design, we can't think of a reason anyone *wouldn't* swoon over them. The best part is they have a durable rubber lug outsole, so you can step out and stomp through winter weather without slipping up. But are they true to size? One buyer says so, confirming they "fit like perfection." In that case, you may want to buy a pair in every color.

  • Size range: 6 to 11

If you have metals and gemstones that have lost their luster, shine them back to their former glory with this Oprah-approved jewelry cleaner. Formulated with nontoxic, plant-derived ingredients, the wash eliminates dirt, oil and other residues, leaving your precious gems and metals looking brand spanking new. And, yes, in case you were wondering, we did take the cleaner for a spin ourselves, and the results truly lived up to the hype. “I really never take my rings off [so I was] surprised by how much more sparkly they are after rinsing," Mary D’Alessio, PureWow’s audience development director, shares. "And, as an added plus, I think it made me lather my hands for a longer period of time." BTW, this kit doesn't just come with the wash formula, it also includes the brand's Radiance Brush, designed to deep clean your jewels gently but effectively.

4. Sterling Forever The Perfect O-ccasion Earring Set and Case

Sterling Forever

Want to get the most bang for your buck this holiday season? This jewelry travel case is more like a treasure chest, since it already comes stocked with five pairs of earrings, plus room for your other must-have pieces. For less than $100, you'll get the luxurious little travel case and hypoallergenic accessories in one of two versatile finishes: 14K gold-plated stainless steel or rhodium-plated stainless steel. No wonder it's made Oprah's 'Favorite Things' list the past two years.

Best Food Gift

5. Boarderie The Ultimate Baked Brie Board


What's better than one cheesy holiday appetizer? Um, how about four? This foodie-approved baked brie board includes four decadent cheese pastries that make holiday hosting a breeze. They're all pre-assembled, all you need to do is pop them in the oven for 20 minutes, and voila, you've got a platter of fancy, melty, ooey-gooey goodness. We're talking blueberry vanilla goat cheese paired with Thai crystallized ginger and honey, and truffle Moliterno cheese paired with Turkish fig and sweet orange preserves, all atop a base of French brie. Who needs a party? We'd order this for our midnight snack...

Best Jacket to Gift

6. Kashwére Cozy Full Zip Jacket


PureWow editors are rushing to buy this cozy zip jacket woven from the brand's polyester Dream Plush yarn. Why, you ask? Isn't it obvious? Everything from its oversized fit and tall collar (that will surely keep our neck warm) to its ribbed hem and cuffs makes it as chic and functional as can be. Per the brand, it's designed to have the super soft feel of cashmere, but without all the fuss (ahem, you can just throw it in the washing machine). To say we're obsessed would be an understatement.

Best Gift for Kids

7. Head Lightz Beanie and Glove Set

Head Lightz

If your kid is looking forward to snowball fights and sledding throughout the gray winter days, then they need this machine-washable beanie and glove set. Not only will these accessories help keep them warm, the beanie actually has a rechargeable, built-in LED light with *three* brightness settings to help keep them safe and visible in the dark. Genius, right? And just so you know, they're made of a knit acrylic material, which should feel soft and last long so they can go on playing in the snow for multiple winters to come.

Best Kitchen Gift

8. Ooni Volt 12 Pizza Oven


What's the secret to an incredible pizza? An Ooni, of course (just read our full review). The functionality and quality of the brand's line of pizza ovens are undeniably impressive, which is why everyone loves them. This particular pizza oven can be used indoors *and* outdoors, reaching up to 850 degrees Fahrenheit to cook delicious Neapolitan-style pies in as little as 20 minutes (no turning required!). Just imagine how much more fun pizza night will be with this guy at the ready.

Best Tech Gift

9. Beats Studio Pro Headphones


Oprah said it best, "Some of us are over-the-head-headphone people, and if you know one of them, these are the best of the best." We wouldn't expect anything less coming from Dr. Dre, so it really is no shocker that these Beats headphones have noise-canceling and audio calibration technology to truly immerse you into any sound. Better yet, they charge super fast (no, seriously, just ten minutes gets you up to *four hours* of listening time). Meanwhile, a full charge lasts up to 40 hours, per the brand, making them ideal for anyone who forgets to plug things in. And with a few taps on the sides, you can control your music choices, pause, take calls, address Siri and more since these Bluetooth-powered wireless headphones are programmable to your needs. What more can you ask for?

Best Practical Gift

10. WanderFull Crossbody HydroBag


This lightweight quilted crossbody conveniently holds a 3.5-inch water bottle, credit cards and a phone to take with you while you hike, travel, run errands, or commute to work, so you'll stay hydrated and have quick access to your essentials. If you don't go anywhere without your trusty water bottle, it's obviously a must. But here's why one buyer is obsessed: "I love this bag! It fits everything I need for a day out or heading to the airport. I love the separate zippered areas and slots for my cards. Just be sure to finish your water before going to security, then fill up before boarding." Nice tip.
