Playing 6 of Oprah's Favorite Things 2021 With Gayle King and Adam Glassman

We look forward to Oprah's Favorite Things every year, but this year is EXTRA special—because it's the list's 25th anniversary!  

"Can y'all believe that it all started as a way for me to share joy and gratitude to the people who matter most?" Oprah says.  

We're so happy she hasn't stopped, because per usual, we LOVE this year's list—especially because, just like Oprah's Favorite Things 2020, it focuses on small businesses, with a special emphasis on those owned by women and people of color.  

"We're inspired by their stories," she says, "and we hope that you will be, too." 

It wasn't easy for us to pick our favorites (there are 110 amazing items on the list this year!), but we decided to pick 16 favorites—because it's our Sweet 16 season!

Oprah's BFF Gayle King and the Creative Director of "Oprah Daily," Adam Glassman, even visited our show to highlight six of the picks (watch in the video above).

Before we get into it, though, we have to give an honorable mention to the Tovala Smart Oven ("Gayle swears this kept her fed through isolation," Oprah says. "You can scan the barcode of a grocery item and the oven will adjust its settings to cook it."), which is on sale for $99 right now. That's $200 off! HURRY.
