This week, Oprah released her annual Favorite Things list, and per usual, many of the items are—shall we say?—aspirationally priced. We already rounded up a few items for the home that were a little on the expensive side, so today, we thought we'd give you some affordable alternatives, as well as a few Official Favorite Things under $50. Check out our picks below.

Instead of $150 bath salts...

Try this super pretty option from Herbivore. Still lovely enough to gift, but much nicer on the budget at $18.

Instead of the 16 oz. mugs set for $48...

Try the same Canvas Home tinware, but perfectly espresso sized. They're 6 for $28, and even less expensive if you buy more than one set.

Instead of a $185 shot set and serving paddle...

Here's a $54 version, which will save you some cash to buy the booze itself.

Instead of a $64 olive tree...

Deliver a lovely succulent garden instead (this one is $24.99, but also check out your local nursery or plant shop).

And of course, Oprah's latest book is well under $50. In it, she distills the wisdom from her Super Soul Sunday conversations to its truest form. Bonus: the audiobook is read by Oprah herself.
