10 of Oprah’s 2018 Favorite Things Under $50

We have a little over a month until the next Oprah’s Favorite Things List arrives on the interwebs. So, that got me thinking about last year’s list. I love perusing it, even when I have no plans on purchasing the items. Some of them are just funky and fun. Others spark inspiration – like when you just can’t find what you want to get for that friend that is impossible to shop for.

Some of the items are quite expensive. Some are downright splurges, but I’ll give it to Oprah – and her team of writers, shoppers and editors – almost every category on her list has an item or two for under $50. Let’s take a look at a few from last year, and I promise to highlight the 2019 selections as well.

Peepers Shine On Polarized Sunglasses and Blue Light Filtering Readers

I usually don’t mind that I am getting older. It’s actually quite cool, but I am finding myself fiercely resistant to the idea of readers… but maybe if I tell myself they are just blue light blockers, I may be able to get over this mental hurdle. Plus these are cute.
