Now that's something to carol about. On Kirbie: Shoshanna dress

We always love seeing Oprah's annual list of Favorite Things, and this year did not disappoint! With over 60 items, there is literally something for everyone, but we naturally were most interested to see which home decor items made the cut. Check out the items that made Oprah's list — and ours.These Malachite Boxes ($49-$79) are at the top of our list too! We clearly have much in common with Oprah. What could be a more perfect gift for the ultimate dog lover than this Custom Dog Pillow ($395)? We have been waiting a long time for these useful retro pieces to come back in style! Thank you, Oprah, for adding this Monogrammed Lazy Susan ($195) to your list. Although it is hard to tell, this is one big candle. With 77 ounces of wax and a 350 hours of burn time, the Holiday Grand Candle ($225) is going to be the only candle you need to get you through the holidays. Did we mention that it smells just like Christmas? Sure, email is easier but receiving a real letter in the mail is much nicer. The Caddylicious Stationery Box ($300) is perfect for the snail mail aficionado in your life. Made from copper and antler, this Serving Piece ($175) has all the makings of a modern-day heirloom. We aren't sure if Oprah would love these Gold Circular Candleholders ($89-$179) as much if they didn't mimic one of her initials, but we aren't judging.
