Every year, Oprah gifts the world her list of favorite things released over the past 12 months, from beauty must-haves to kitchen essentials and fashionable finds. While Queen O’s selections tend to be items that are on point in functionality and design, the prices aren’t always a bargain.

As a result, we decided to pick the must-haves from her 2018 list of 106 items and find the budget-friendly versions sold by some of our favorite brands. All of the alternatives we found are under $50, and for Oprah’s items that are already under that amount, we found selections that are even cheaper.

See below for our affordable finds, plus Oprah’s OG picks.
