A $120 set of chocolates, $450 set of pots, and $195 sweatpants are just a few of Oprah's Favorite Things of 2015. This year's list is the biggest yet (there are 87 items in all) and also perhaps "the most versatile and fun ever," the talk show queen says, per USA Today. Here are some of our favorites:

  • SKITS Providence Shoulder Bag: This tote is pretty cool. It comes with a spot to store your tablet, smartphone, and tons of cords. What's not so cool: the price. It costs $425. But hey, "it's the perfect combo of pretty and practical," says Oprah.
  • High Camp Vine and Bloom Box: Oprah loves this $189 box of flowers so much that she put it on her list two years in a row. In case you don't know what to do with flowers, Oprah suggests you "arrange the blooms and vines in a vase, or float them in bowls for an exotic look."
  • Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc Salt Cellar: The stuff in your cupboard just won't compare to a $49 set of three finishing salts, house in a three-level bamboo box. There's one for fish, meat, and vegetables.

  • Hartmann 7R Global Carry-On Spinners: Oprah has places to be, so it's no surprise that one of her favorite items is a rolling suitcase. But not just any rolling suitcase. This one has 360-degree spinning wheels and a head-turning price tag of $650.
  • Customized Book Sets: Something special for the bookworm in your life. Juniper Books offers customized book sets, like this Ernest Hemingway collection of nine books, with cool covers to make your bookshelf look more like a work of art. Price: $395.
  • 360 Cookware: For $449, you get three stainless steel pots and three lids. Um, yeah. Says Oprah: "They're designed with technology that allows for healthy vapor cooking, which heats food faster and at lower temps, locks in flavor and nutrients and eliminates the need for added oils or fats."
  • Kids Boots: Your kids' feet have pretty much stopped growing, right? No? Well, this $90 pair from EMU Australia sounds like a good idea anyway. They're wool-lined and come with animal faces on the toes.
  • Sweatpants: There are normal sweatpants, and there are $195 Vince sweatpants. The difference: Oprah lives in the latter. Apparently you can also dress up this pair, which has a tapered leg and ankle zip.
  • Alma Chocolate Icons Gift Box: Some people care what their chocolate is shaped like. For those people, there is this $120 set of five chocolates designed to look like spiritual totems. Yum?
