If you haven’t started shopping for holiday gifts just yet, this might get you in the mood. Oprah Winfrey — who knows a thing or two about gifting — has released her list of Favorite Things for 2020 on Amazon!
This year’s list doesn’t disappoint. In her quest to find the favorites we’ve come to expect — such as $129 sweatpants, or a $98 travel blanket — Oprah packed her list full of items from Black-owned small businesses, from unfiltered raw honey to dog hoodies.
Unfiltered Raw Honey By Zach & Zoe
The dark amber honey from young sibling duo Zach and Zoe is unfiltered, unpasteurized and apparently delicious enough to make the list. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who likes something sweet spread on their toast or mixed into their holiday cocktail or mocktail.
The unfiltered raw honey by Zach & Zoe gift box, which includes two 16-ounce jars of ginger and creamed honey, is $50.
House Dogge Hoodie
Does your dog make you feel “Blessed,” “Grateful” or “Loved?” If the answer is all three, you might have to gift yourself (and your pooch) one of each of the fun, soft hoodies from House Dogge with one of those messages printed down the back. Don’t forget all your friends who have their own fur babies!
House Dogge Hoodies are $60-$68, depending on size.
Modern Monet Paint By Numbers Kits
If one of your loved ones has discovered a creative side during lockdown, a paint by numbers kit will be a treat.

Each kit comes with everything you need to create your own work of art, including high quality paint.
