Oprah's Favorite Things Are Extra Oprah-y This Year

Today, Starbucks began serving hot beverages in red cups. Which means the season of midnight-madness sales, eating all the pie, and being disappointed by your Christmas bonus (or lack thereof) has officially begun. But, before you get all freaked out that the holidays are upon us again, like a never-ending cosmic cycle, let us remind you that 'tis also the season of Oprah gifting us with her annual Favorite Things list. Hark!
This year, Oprah has 72 Favorite Things, each one more awe-inspiring than the last. The list combines seasonal comfort clothes (Plush robes! Fuzzy slippers!), novel foods (Jam samplers! Bagel balls!), and normal stuff, priced for the 1% (cashmere hoodies and $150 loaves of bread, anyone?).
And yes, Oprah really did hand-select them all. At least, we think that's what this quote from O, the Oprah Magazine's December issue means:
“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,” quoth O.
Hear that, people? Oprah lotioned, potioned, toiled, and troubled for you. So, take a peek at our favorite Favorite Things ahead, and then give the full list a gander. It's sure to cure even the most Scrooge-hearted Grinch of her holiday malaise — all thanks to that angel on earth, Oprah.

Listen. We know a lot of people have a lot of feelings about Uggs. But, picture this, naysayers: It's a snowy Sunday, and the delivery guy is bringing malai kofta and onion naan to your door any moment. What do you throw on when he rings the bell — your spindly stilettos? No. You put on these plush, furry wonders.

"I love anything that jazzes up a button-down," Oprah writes. As fashion people know, shirts with button-down collars usually don't have French cuffs, but who are we mere mortals to contradict Winfrey?
