Even Oprah Feels The Pinch With This Year's Favorite Things For The Thrifty

Oprah’s much-anticipated Favorite Things episode premiered this afternoon, just in time for the upcoming shopping frenzy. Unfortunately, it was re-named ‘How to Have the Thriftiest Holiday Ever’ and nobody took home obscene amounts of gifts and gadgets, thanks to Oprah’s decision to remain sensitive to our economic climate. Although we understand her reasoning, we’d still feel secretly miffed if we were a member of that audience.


Our new Queen of Thrift showcased swapping parties as an excellent and savvy way to score gently used clothing by exchanging unwanted items with friends. We already know what a stellar idea this is, having mentioned it a month ago.

In terms of gift-giving, Oprah was big on personalizing your present. She suggested a box of endearing letters, but we think a special necklace from our guide would be much more fashionable.

Although they weren’t featured on the show, The Jo Malone bath oil set ($85) and Philosophy’s Hope In A Jar ($15-$60) made Oprah’s list of great gifts under $100 in O Magazine.
