It’s been three years since women (and men) watched Oprah Winfrey dish out advice and conduct riveting interviews on a daily basis, but the passing time hasn’t lessened her influence.

In fact, one of Oprah’s most beloved traditions — her “favorite things” list — is still published on her website and in her magazine each year around the holiday season. The Queen herself tests hundreds of items to create a comprehensive list of things to give to yourself and the ones you love.

Unfortunately, her list is so comprehensive, it’s a doozy to get through. But lucky for you, we scoured the list (and checked it twice) to compile the best of the best, making it easy for you to save, spend and splurge this winter.

When You Want To Save…

What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey

“What I Know For Sure” by Oprah Winfrey

Price: $23.49, on sale for $14.95

What Oprah Has To Say:

“What I know for sure is that I’ll never stop asking myself, ‘what do I know for sure?’ This compilation, collected and updated from the column I’ve been writing for this magazine since 2000, is packed with my very personal answers.”

What We Have To Say:

What better way to ring in the holidays than years (literally years) of Oprah’s life advice all in one place? This book is perfect for both the nonfiction reader and the die-hard fan that actually watches OWN.

 Oprah Chai Holiday Collection
Oprah Chai Holiday Collection from Teavana

Price: $89.95

What Oprah Has To Say:

“This set has everything you need for teatime: a teamaker, two glasses (I lobbied hard to get the extra-large size exactly right!), and Teavana Oprah Chai tea. Well, almost everything — splash of almond milk not included.”

What We Have To Say:

This five piece set is perfect for two! Plus with every purchase, $4 will be donated to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, which we are obviously into.

Quilted Cuff Gloves

Price: $78.00

What Oprah Has To Say:

“These sleek sheepskin leather gloves with Thinsulate lining and puffy cuffs are not only warm and practical, but they also kick your winter look up a notch. Bonus: You don’t have to take them off to tap your touch screen.”

What We Have To Say:

We all remember last year’s unending polar vortex, right? Exactly. While we don’t need a 2.0 version, I think we can all agree it’s more likely than not, rendering these heavy duty gloves a necessary investment.

When You Want To Spend…

Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron 5.5 Qt. Round French Oven

Macy’s Le Creuset French Oven

Price: $279.98

What Oprah Has To Say:

“I love anything by Le Creuset, and this enameled cast-iron French oven and the stoneware dishes (in my favorite shade of green) are no exception.”

What We Have To Say:

While the jury is still out on Teflon toxicity, cast iron and stoneware dishes are definitely safe and stylish for any kitchen. The prices for the high quality pieces aren’t too shabby either, with the 5½-quart round French oven at $280, the 12-by-9-inch rectangular baking dish priced at $65, and 14-inch Au Gratin dish only $60.

GoPro Hero CHDHA-301

Go Pro Hero

Price: $129.99

What Oprah Has To Say:

“This camera may be tiny (it fits in the palm of your hand) and light (less than four ounces), but it can withstand water, sand, snow and dirt and be mounted practically anywhere for POV action shots and high-quality videos.”

What We Have To Say:

We second Oprah. But if you don’t believe us, check this out.

Waring Popcorn Maker with Melting Pot

Waring Popcorn Maker with Melting Pot

Price: $129.95

What Oprah Has To Say:

“This 20-cup popper (which stirs automatically so the kernels don’t burn) has a melting station that warms butter, caramel or any other topping. My favorite is a blend of truffle oil, truffle butter and truffle salt.”

What We Have To Say:

Baby, it’s cold outside. Instead of braving the weather, grab a loved one, pop some fresh popcorn and find the remote, because Love Actually is on Netflix and it’s December.

When You Want To Splurge…

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

Price: $499.99, on sale for $449.99

What Oprah Has To Say:

“You can hold, hang, stand and tilt this tablet developed by Lenovo and Ashton Kutcher. But the real star power? It includes a projector, so you can convert your living room wall into an instant home theater.”

What We Have To Say:

You don’t have to be a yogi to fall in love with this tablet. Apple fanatics aren’t exempt either, especially considering it has a solid 5-star rating from its users.

 Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Brewer & Espresso Maker

Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Brewer & Espresso Maker

Price: $429.99, on sale for $299.99

What Oprah Has To Say:

“You and your guests can now toggle between espresso and regular coffee. The latest Nespresso offering makes both (by recognizing the different-size coffee pods) and turns out a fragrant, flavorful cup in about 20 seconds.”

What We Have To Say:

If you could only see the amount of coffee the We-Care.com office consumes on a daily basis, you’d know how much we truly adore this. Poet T.S. Eliot once said, “I’ve measured out my life with coffee spoons.” Now you can take a page out of his book, and measure yours out in coffee pods.
