Seriously? O-P-R-A-H!!!! ??? When Oprah calls you come a runnin’ and that’s exactly what I did yesterday when I was invited to O Magazine’s offices to preview Oprah’s Favorite Things. All guests in attendance were sworn to secrecy until this morning when the items were announced on ABC’s GMA. The event was hosted by O Magazines’s Creative Director, Adam Glassman who is basically Oprah’s right hand man. He’s responsible for choosing each product on this year’s list. This beautiful breakfast preview took place at the Hearst Tower where I also went for the Woman’s Day crafting session back in October. It was in a cool glass walled conference room over looking Columbus Circle in New York City. I was thrilled to meet new peeps and hang with friend Kristen Taekman.
Some of Oprah’s list makers were hidden underneath a wrapped box just like how Oprah used to debut the items on her show. One by one Adam explained to us why each product was chosen. In true Oprah fashion, we were also given some fun treats to take home! When rapping up today’s preview Glassman summed up the spirit of gift giving by saying, “You always want people to savor that moment when you gave them that gift.”
The list of Oprah’s Favorite Things is in O Magazine’s December issue (on newsstands nationwide November 10th) 87 gifts, this is Oprah’s biggest list ever and there is something for everyone!
It’s also uber convenient that Oprah is changing things up this year by making everything available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/oprah.
Now let’s get to the goods!
