I know I’m not the only one that loved watching Oprah’s Favorite Things segment on her talk show. It was always thrilling to see which items made her list every year. And so fun to see the audience go crazy when they received one of everything. To celebrate the season of gifting, I’ve created my own Favorite Things Gift Guide. From fashion and function, to inspiration and little indulgences, my favorite things list is guaranteed to bring joy!
p.s. today is Free Shipping Friday so it’s a great time to do a little shopping and get many of these items shipped for free.

10 // Glass Jug Vase–I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at these vases from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Hearth & Hand collection at Target. The color is so rich and pretty and I so tempted to buy one for myself. 3 sizes–$16.99-$29.99.
11 // There are tons of great gifts at Steve McKenzie’s but one of my favorite items is the Blenko Water Bottles. Handmade and mouth-blown, Blenko water bottles are made in West Virginia and have been produced for over 75 years. They are available in a mini ($45) or larger size ($55) and come in a range of colors. This is the perfect gift for someone who loves to entertain. FYI–if you can’t make it to the Steve McKenzie store, you can order online and have it shipped.

13 // Glamorous Wash in Katina–This laundry detergent is specifically made for fine washables and linens and smells amazing. I also use it when I’m washing out sleepwear. The DIVA scent is pretty fabulous too! $28.50 for a 32 oz bottle.
14 // There’s nothing more luxurious than waking up on a cold morning and slipping into a cozy robe. This Pottery Barn Faux Fur Robe with Chinchilla trim was made for cold mornings. $90.

16 // So I had to include a splurge gift on my favorite things lis and this Olive Leaf Band Ring from Tiffany is it. This beautiful ring is designed by Paloma Picasso and crafted of sterling silver and is definitely meant for someone special. $325.
