There are a number of things that remain a constant every holiday season. Heartwarming Hallmark movies played on repeat, Mishumaa and Menorah candles being lit in homes across the country, and the release of Oprah's Favorite Things.

According to Oprah Daily, everyone's favorite TV personality Oprah Winfrey has been revealing a mega-list of all of her favorite things from the past year, just in time for the holiday season. Her favorite things, which include 104 items this year, are split into various categories for easy navigation. From wellness and beauty gifts to items for the tech nerds and the stylish, Winfrey has thought of everything.

As inflation rises and the majority of people's money is devoted to paying for the rising costs of necessities, not everyone has the budget to spend as much money as they did for gifts in holidays past. Thankfully, Oprah has compiled a list of her favorite affordable gifts and we've rounded up our top favorites.
