Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020 is officially here. It’s full of covetable loungewear and epic gift ideas, but most importantly, this year’s list champions small businesses and businesses owned by people of color. As the legend herself put it in her letter on OprahMag.com: “…This year, there’s a special twist. Because so many people want to support Black lives any way they can, we’ve found dozens of absolutely gorgeous gifts from Black-owned businesses that deserve to be celebrated, because we believe Black lives—and Black businesses—matter. So for 2020, most of my Favorite Things are from Black-owned or -led companies.” Of the 70 brands included this year, 50 are BIPOC-owned.
They say the best gifts are the ones you’d want for yourself, and after seeing how many chic and cozy fashion finds are included this year, I can confirm that this holds true with Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020. Ahead, Oprah-approved fashion gifts to treat your loved ones and yourself to at every price point.

An Initial Ring
Gold-Filled Initial Ring
Chari Cuthbert’s eponymous fine jewelry famously created the VOTE necklace Michelle Obama wore when she delivered her powerful speech at the 2020 DNC. Earning the honor of being one of Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020, this gold filled ring from Cuthbert’s label is dripping in minimalist appeal.
A FLEECE JUMPSUIT
This fleece jumpsuit from Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty line is in a league of its own when it comes to cozy-chic WFH clothing. Editor’s note: no sooner than the second I sign off today am I ordering this for me, my sister and my mom, whether my debit card likes it or not.
A PAIR OF FUZZY SLIPPERS
So Good Fluffy Slippers
Cozy slippers are a must these days. Aptly named, this fuzzy pair will add a fashionable spin on any WFH ensemble, groufits included, while also allowing her to show off her favorite socks.
A Set of Earrings
‘Tis The Season Huggie Set
Per Oprahmag.com, Stella & Haas founder Jenni Kaufusi says her goal is for her jewelry brand to be a place for all, ensuring inclusivity and representation for her customers. Here, a gorgeous trio of baroque pearl and gold-plated huggies.
A Trio of Masks
Travel Face Covering Set
Wearing a mask is the simplest thing we can (and should) be doing right now to help keep one another safe. This floral trio from Tory Burch is not only aesthetically pleasing, but practical as well as the straps can be adjusted for a comfortable fit.
A Pair of Waterproof Sneakers
Kinetic Conquest Waterproof Sneaker
Behold, a pair of waterproof sneakers that are both practical and chic. Not only will these keep toes from freezing in the rain and snow, but they have traction that makes them well-suited for hikes.
A Winter Coat
Ultra-Light Down Packable Jacket
Oprah isn’t the only person who loves this jacket; Amazon reviewers are also obsessed. Warm enough to wear into the mid-30s while barely taking up any space in a suitcase or closet, it’s a smart essential for anyone’s winter wardrobe. As one reviewer raved: “It is down feather, and super lightweight, and veryyy well made…” The jacket comes in sixes XS through 3X in a total of twelve colors.
A Tote Bag
Rayo and Honey Tote Bag
It’s hard to pick a favorite quote from Brooklyn-based Rayo and Honey’s line of tote bags. Large enough to carry an impressive amount of groceries in or picnic supplies, this is a thoughtful gift for any literary lover or explorer on your list.
A Winter Hat
Grace Eleyae GE I Warm Knit Foldover Satin Lined Beanie with Faux Fur Pom
Grace Eleyae GE
There’s no shortage of cute beanies out there, but Grace Eleyae’s creations stand out for their satin lining, which helps protect hair and retain moisture. As described on the brand’s site, Grace Eleyae’s goal is “to take the sweat out of your morning routine by offering protective hair accessories that are fashionable and functional.” (Editor’s note: If you haven’t heard of the brand before, I highly recommend a peruse through their site or Amazon page as they have affordable, unisex options certain to please anyone on your shopping list.)
A Pair of Leggings
Women’s Seamless High-Waisted Legging
We’re all living in leggings these days, which is why this super comfy-looking pair from Black-owned brand Iconi is a can’t-miss deal for $45. Featuring a supportive waistband and seamless design, these will be able to take you from virtual yoga classes to watching Netflix in bed with ease.
A Cozy Hoodie
Bleach Dye Oversized Giant Hoodie
Just in case your quarantine tie-dye attempts didn’t turn out nearly this cool either (which, ugh), Oprah’s List of Favorite Things has you covered. Earning its moniker of Giant Hoodies, this brand makes oversized hoodies that make for cozy and kitschy loungewear.
A Pair of Heart-Shaped Earrings
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, heart-shaped jewelry has had a renaissance since Pam Beasley implied in season 6 of The Office that women wouldn’t buy it for themselves. Here, a fun pair of 18-karat yellow gold over silver sterling hoops befitting any confident muse.
A PAIR OF SWEATPANTS
Paskho Women’s Serene Ultra Comfortable Pants
Listen, I’m normally on the same page about shelling out $168 for sweatpants. It’s steep. However, Pashko’s Swiss made, moisture-wicking pants differ from the rest in their versatility and durability. Their chic bow closure makes them well-suited for socially distanced hangouts too. Adding this to my cart asap.
A Pair of Slip-On Shoes
Suede Women’s Lamu Mule
Handmade in Kenya, proceeds from these chic suede mules go toward the Ubuntu Life Foundation, which strives to provide “pediatric health and special needs education across the region,” according to its website. Indigo, mustard, brown, and dusty rose colorways for the shoes are also available.
