Since it began in the 1990s, Oprah's Favorite Things has been a highly anticipated holiday tradition. Even though The Oprah Winfrey Show (where it all began) has been off the air for years, the beloved media mogul continues to carry on the annual list to the delight of shoppers. From yummy edible goodies to chic clothing and novel tech gadgets, Oprah's list never disappoints.

Per usual, Oprah's 2019 selections include a ton of great finds that will delight whoever receives them. While the 79 picks cover a wide price range, there are some items that may be a tad out of reach, budget wise—or simply out of stock. Luckily, with a bit of digging, there are many affordable, creative options that will hit the mark.

From sustainable options like a vegan leather tote and bamboo pajamas to items like an electric wine opener to delight foodies, there's something for everyone in your life. Check out some of Oprah's Favorite Things, along with our affordable alternatives, and get shopping!
