‘Tis the season. You know, Oprah picks her favorite things for the holidays.
You can now go online on Amazon to watch Oprah geek out over lots of stuff. And what just happened to make Oprah’s Favorite Things list this year? Amazon Echo.
“If you thought the Scarlett Johansson-voiced operating system in the movie Her was science fiction, meet Alexa, the voice of a device that answers questions, plays music, reads your Audible book aloud, and more,” Oprah writes on Amazon about the Echo, priced at about $180. “OWN’s Erik Logan turned me on to it, and I love it.”
The list includes nearly 90 “curated” items from Oprah and her editorial team. The entire list will also appear in her magazine, which hits stands next week.
While Oprah’s Favorite Things lists tend to include clothes, food, health and beauty items, there are also a few gadgets thrown in for good measure, like wireless speakers from Sonos, Beats by Dre in-ear headphones, and a FujiFilm printer for your smartphone photos.
This year, Oprah was also in love with Apple, picking two items for her list — the rose gold Apple Watch and this:
If you actually want any of these things, you might want to go ahead and order them now. When Oprah features a product in her magazines, it tends to go fast.
My holiday wish? That she still did her talk show episode of “Favorite Things,” in which she whips her audience up into a screaming frenzy that would rival any One Direction concert.
