Every year, some of the media's most prominent names share their list of gifts that deserve a spot under our tree come December 25th, and among the most popular of all is Oprah's. 

The mogul recently kick-started the shopping season with her sought-after guide, aptly named 'Oprah's Favorite Things' – comprising some of the industry's best candles, coffee makers, and bread ovens. In total, Oprah recommends a cool 112 products, but to narrow the process down, we chose our six favorites, all of which happen to be homes-focused, naturally. 

'Favorite things started because I wanted to share the gifts that I love with other people,' Oprah says. 'This year, I found some really good ones to share with you. Lots of these terrific gifts come from small business owners, family shops, best friends, and local makers, so you're not only discovering great gifts here – you are going to be supporting the people who stepped out on a dream to make them happen.'

Oprah's Favorite list has given us a failsafe starting point for holiday shopping; here are the pieces we'd love to give (and receive) this year.

We love the variety of Oprah's guide this year, mostly because there's something for every price point. Now the biggest question is who gets what gift?
