Oprah's Favorite Things

Dec 11, 2007
Every year around holidays, the famous TV show host Oprah Winfrey sparks a frenzy among loyal fans of the show with her list of top 20 of her favorite things for Holiday Gifts. Oprah's 2007 list of favorite things has many gifts ranging in price from affordable to not so affordable for mere mortals.

However Holiday Shopping and Gift Giving need not break your budget if you shop smart and be sensible about giving gifts to loved ones.

Although it is hard to match Oprah's list but we can certainly suggest several things under $30 that would make excellent and appreciable gifts.

For starters lets look at what is available for "HER"

Monogramming and Personalization is all the rage in gift giving these days, so why not give a gift that is just for "HER" and nobody else. How about a beautiful Monogrammed Tote Bag or Carry All which is a very handy gift and at the same time a very "In Style" gift as well.

Or how about a very unique gift of Monogrammed Clogs or Flip Flops! I bet that would be enough to capture attention and who knows may even start a new trend in Gift Giving.

Hers is another Idea although it is not a very new one, Personalized Jewelry. Every body loves to see their initials carved on watches or earrings or bracelets or even necklaces. You can even engrave lines of messages on bracelets or anklets or bangles or necklaces. There are unlimited choices and varieties in the jewelry and with engraving so cheap these days, also very affordable.

Lets see what is available for "HIM" under $30

Well How about a toolset for that very handy around the house guy, a set of tools with his initials on the box or the tools, how can you go wrong with that?

For the well dressed how about some swanky cufflinks! Boring and old, well they can be classy and stylish if they are the right kind. How about some CD's initialized for the techie kind, I bet he would be thrilled to get an entire set of those with his name or initial or a special message on them. For the sportsman there are a number of options that you cant go wrong with like personalized Golf clubs or Golf Balls, baseball bat or any number of sports items that can be thrilling for the sports lover at the receiving end. For the more humdrum I mean sedentary person there are endless options. For the Food lover how about some gourmet berries or chocolates with their initials on every chocolate, that would be a trip every mouthful.

We cannot forget the "LITTLE ONES" as they make holiday season worthwhile

Why not give something memorable or fun keepsake rather than just some plastic toy which holds attention for a few seconds before being relegated to a corner in the closet. How about a Money Box with their own name engraved on it or a miniature something that they really identify with.

Holidays need not be a stress or a stretch for ones budget. On the contrary they can be fun without breaking the bank and incurring debt which you will pay for the rest of the year. All These Gift Ideas are not very expensive but very affordable and sensible and they can also be really very meaningful and fun. The Gift recipient would enjoy receiving these gifts and would be appreciative of the sentiment and thoughtfulness gone into the gift.
