Oprah’s expensive taste

It’s that time of the year again when former talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey releases her Favourite Things gift guide – a list of goodies she believes are must-haves or would make the perfect gift.

This year she definitely had a taste for finer things, as some of the items will cost you an arm and a leg.

While the billionaire media mogul no longer has a talk show on which to surprise her audience members, she is giving away all 60 items in an O Magazine lottery. Every day a reader will be picked as a winner.

Here are some of her more pricy Favourite Things:

  • A decadent black truffle risotto gift box from Thomas Keller retails at R5 000;
  • The Coltellerie Berti for Match Convivio Nuovo steak knife set, which is handcrafted by Italian artisans, goes for R4 750;
  • At R2 250, the 2 kg Nest Fragrances holiday candle must smell fantastic;
  • For old-school romantics who still want to write letters by hand, there’s a Caddylicious stationery set worth R3 000; and
  • If you want to spoil the woman in your life, you can fork out R29 000 for a Rado True Thinline Jubilé watch.
