11 Gifts from Oprah’s ‘Favorite Things’ on Amazon You Need to Register for STAT
Shop The Story
No one does gift-giving better than Oprah (no last name needed). So we were beyond excited when she announced her 2019 picks for her much-anticipated, annual Favorite Things list. Of course, some items are indulgences us mere mortals may not buy for ourselves, like an iced coffee machine that costs more than our yearly Starbucks tab. The good news is this is a perfect gift to add to your wedding registry, since friends and family can pitch in and buy it as a group. Ditto Oprah’s pick of an upscale electric griddle that offers so many cooking options beyond pancakes (although, we are kinda craving flapjacks right about now).
Read on to discover our top suggestions for awesome additions to your wedding registry. Already married? Then consider gifting your significant other with an Oprah-curated item to enhance your newlywed nest. From a comfy pair of PJs perfect for Netflix and chilling in front of the fireplace all holiday season long to an at-home cocktail creation kit that takes the guesswork out of mixology, there’s a gift for everyone on this roundup. All courtesy of Oprah, to whom we bow down for sharing her Favorite Things again this year.
What to Register For
Registering has gone way beyond dishes and towels. Because so many couples marry later and have already accumulated these home staples, now, registering is about collecting the stuff you crave. Of course, newer, less dingy towels are never a bad thing. But it’s OK to think about your wedding registry as an opportunity to ask for items you might not buy for yourself. Enter Oprah. Some of her Fav Things picks are over-the-top, in the best way possible. Yes, you need a margarita machine. Meanwhile, not every item on your registry has to be a big deal. Oprah also included everyday products you may not have in excess, like spices for cooking and baking, as well as a cozy throw blanket. Your friends and family will love purchasing things they know you and your new spouse can put to good use. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for self-care staples. Weddings are stressful, and a good bath or workout sesh (with new Beats headphones!) will go a long way in readying you to walk down the aisle.
Considerations for Your Wedding Registry
Don’t forget to stock your registry with gifts at all price points to accommodate all budgets. You needn’t shy away from higher-priced items, because remember, your bridal party or a group of friends and family can always go in on a group gift.
Consider registering for gifts that aren’t too trendy, because you want to love your decor in years to come. That said, you obviously want to live in the smartest home possible, so review Oprah’s options for tech gifts that can make your day-to-day easier.
Remember that creating your wedding registry is the fun part of wedding planning!
