For years, holiday shoppers have anticipated Oprah’s Favorite Things list. What first started on her iconic daytime talk show has since migrated to the place where we buy all the things—Amazon. Oprah’s Favorite Things now has its own virtual storefront that houses her 107 picks through categories like “Quirky” and “Cozy Essentials.” This makes it easier than ever to add them to your cart or put them on your wishlist.

While the media mogul and philanthropist always generates a lot of buzz with her yearly product picks, some of them are a big splurge or quickly sell out. To ease those shopping woes, we’ve selected some of our favorites from the list and their alternatives—in case Oprah’s Things are out of stock or beyond your budget.

Check out our favorite picks from Oprah’s Favorite Things with other possibilities, below. And to view all 107 of her picks, check out Oprah’s Amazon storefront.
