November is officially here, so I think it’s safe to finally say that the holiday season has started. In addition to readying our decorations and breaking out our Bing Crosby (or Mariah Carey) Christmas albums, there’s one other thing many of us are probably doing: Compiling our shopping lists. With so many opportunities for gifting throughout November and December, it’s no surprise that finding the perfect present for everyone on your list is top-of-mind.

Like the helpful little elves we are, we’ve been busy curating the best gift guides for everyone in your life, while also keeping an eye out for what other pro-gifters are suggesting for the season. One list we always anticipate without fail each year? That of Queen O, of course! In case you’re (somehow) unaware, Oprah has spent over two decades releasing a list of her Favorite Things each holiday season, and this year is no different. Well, the newest list just dropped today and it’s full of style, home, beauty, pet, kid, and food gifts for basically everyone on your list. Check out 30 of our favorite picks below — and maybe even get the majority of your shopping done early!

When it comes to making sure you're pressed and ready for that next Zoom meeting or holiday party, nothing gets the job done faster than this iron and steamer combo from Nori. “As someone who lives in a studio apartment," SEO editor Sarah says, "I’m precious about my space, so a traditional iron and ironing board setup was out of the picture. Enter The Nori Press: Compact and shaped like an oversized hair straightener (a kitschy design I adore), this iron gets the job done with six fabric-specific heat settings and an easy-to-use design that takes all the fuss out of ironing.”

Your friend who's always focused on manifesting the life they want will love this happiness journal created by Ms. O herself.

Whether you're shopping for a pal who loves to go for solo runs at night or your husband who is on middle-of-the-night pet potty duty, this ROQ baseball cap will keep them safe in style. It's basically a sporty twist on a traditional headlamp, with an integrated light at the front that's powered by a rechargeable LED battery. Genius!

Spoil your child's teacher or your favorite yoga instructor this holiday season with this luxe set of hand creams from Murphy & Daughters, which features three transportive scents — Mirabai Rose, Octavia Grapefruit, and Frida Frangipani. The formulas are packed with moisturizing aloe vera and shea butter, so they'll chase away any winter chapping and ensure your recipient sneaks in at least five minutes of self-care a day.

We're huge fans of bespoke pantry staple company Brightland here at AT, and this collection of EVOOs is, in our opinion (and Oprah's!), the ideal gift for the foodie on your list. Featuring special artist-designed labels, this quad of cold-pressed oils is meant to dial your next meal up a notch, with flavor-packed blends that you'll be mopping up from your plate with a spare piece of bread each and every time. They include spicy Ardor, garlic-infused Rosette, lemon-infused Lucid, and basil-infused Arise.

Gifting someone far from home this holiday season? Send them this cozy blanket for the physical embodiment of a warm hug. It's lined with soft-as-can-be sherpa on the inside and chic crinkled muslin cotton (in a trio of warm hues) on the outside, so it's as stylish as it is comfortable.

If you know someone who is a white wine (or rose!) fan regardless of the season, this innovative chiller is for them. Designed for use with stemless wine glasses, this VoChill chiller relies on a thermal fluid-filled "chill cradle" that can be frozen, then placed in the body of the structure to quickly bring down the temperature of any glass of wine — and keep it cool as you take your time to sip.

While bath towels might not be the most romantic holiday gift out there, they sure are practical and a great option for someone on your Nice List who just moved into a new place (or is still relying on the ratty old set they bought in college). This collection from Cozy Earth is beloved by Oprah and AT editors alike, and features a luxe two-sided design, with a waffle exterior and a cozy terry material on the inside for the perfect balance of comfort and moisture-wicking. Translation: Each bath or shower will feel like a spa-like experience right at home.

There's something about luxury pantry goods that just feel like a special gift to give (and receive!), and this high-end pack from editor-favorite brand TRUFF totally bundles that feel.

Serious at-home chefs know all about the benefit of using freshly ground spices in their cooking, but the execution is still easier said than done. Enter: FinaMIll's battery-operated pepper mill and spice grinder. This unique gadget relies on interchangeable spice pods that can be swapped onto the grinding body before being perfectly pulverized in order to extract the most flavor and kick. Bonus: The spice pods even double as storage, keeping your spices fresh if you don't use them all at once.

The holiday season is full of opportunities for clinking glasses, and you know what that means — lots of bottles of wine! Ensure not a single drop goes to waste with Coravin’s innovative wine preservation system. It allows you to tap into wine using a thin needle (basically, you never uncork it!) and gas, keeping what’s left in the bottle fresh for months and even years. It's the perfect gift for a vino snob that hesitates to open the good stuff "just because."
