See Oprah present her festive favorite things list on YouTube:

Oprah says:

“So this’ll be a holiday season unlike any other, but there’s one thing I know for sure and that is gratitude is one of the greates gifts you can give to others and, of course, to yourself. It’s the spirit of gratitude that has inspired our 2020 favorite things list and this year we’re celebrating black-owned businesses and the people behind them.

We’ve got some fascinating gifts for everyone in your life and I know all you parents have had a lot on your plate. Everyone could use some extra joy. It is my hope that this year’s list will inspire you to express your gratitude for the people who matter most and to support more black-owned businesses all year round.

I’m wishing you and all your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season.
