Looking for some holiday gift-giving inspo? Making your shopping list just got easier, thanks to a little help from one of TV's favorite talk-show hosts: Oprah Winfrey herself.

It's no wonder that Oprah's middle name is Gail because we might as well just call her the OG (via Encyclopedia.com). This actor and media mogul has dominated daytime television for decades, not to mention her time spent hosting awards shows, writing books, and even launching her own magazine. She is an icon of fashion and femininity on her own terms. So who better to provide perfect gift ideas for beauty lovers and self-care queens?


Luckily, we don't have to wait any longer for her 2022 picks. Oprah's holiday recommendations just dropped, and this festive round-up includes something for everybody. From satisfying sugar scrubs to the lip tint set of the season, here are must-have beauty highlights from Oprah's Favorite Things 2022 List.

Laura Geller 2022 Annual Party in a Palette Set

When it comes to gifts that any beauty enthusiast will love, you can't go wrong with this all-encompassing set from Laura Geller. Featuring four curated, full-face palettes, this highly giftable set includes eyeshadow, highlighter, and blush in a number of flattering shades.


And with over 4.5 stars on Amazon, it's clear that the Party in a Palette set is already a hit with customers. As verified buyer Nurse Trixie says in her product review, "I wanted something beautiful and small to take in my bag for touch-ups and travel and these fit the bill! The colors are gorgeous, buildable with great color payoff. There's also a nice selection of mattes and shimmers, matte blush with awesome fine-milled highlighters that make you glow without the usual problem of making texture look worse. These would also make a great gift!"

When in doubt, you can't go wrong with high-quality skincare.

Made in Germany, these science-based skincare solutions have garnered cult popularity in beauty circles, including earning more than 4 stars from reviewers at Sephora. This makes Dr. Barbara Sturm products thoughtful and sought-after gifts for the holiday season.

Use them to lock in hydration and revive rough patches of skin, all while enjoying the variety of scents. The Queen Bee Body Butter Gift Set includes fragrances of blackberry and rose, rosemary and lavender, chamomile and myrrh, and classically sweet Tupelo honey.


As reviewer Susan J. writes, "I noticed an immediate difference on my face and arms which I've never experienced with other brands. I gave my sister a small amount to try. She said she wanted to set her timer for the middle of the night to re-apply!" And with four products in the set, you can spread the love. As Oprah sagely suggests on her Favorite Things List, "These decadently creamy body butters are hard to beat. ... Split them among you and your friends."

Bodynanny Eucalyptus Sugar Scrub Set

Oprah admits to loving the scent of eucalyptus and suggests that Gloria Williams – aka the Footnanny — created this deliciously fragrant sugar scrub with her in mind.

Oprah's particular holiday favorite this year is the brand's line of satin-lined turbans, which are both stylish and gentle on hair.


As Oprah quips, "Some people learned to make sourdough bread during lockdown; I learned to tie a headscarf. If you're still working on your wrapping skills, Grace Eleyae's knotted turbans make it easy. They help reduce frizz and retain moisture, thanks to the satin lining."
