27 Of Oprah's Favorite Things You Can Actually Afford

Every holiday season, Oprah Winfrey releases her list of "favorite things." The list is filled with items that Oprah herself endorses, and there's something for every category. Of course, we don't all have a net work of approximately $3 billion, so sometimes the list can be too pricey for our lifestyles. However, there are some things that won't break the bank and will make your holiday gift giving a little easier!
