When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

 ...and maybe I'll remember a few of Oprah Winfrey's favorite things and then I won't feel so...affordable!

For some folks, holiday season only begins for real when Oprah Winfrey's turns loose her annual list of Favorite Things and that time has come!

The 64-year-old Billionaire admits that the list has gotten a bit out of hand in recent years.  She says somewhere along the way of what started out as a simple idea of wanting to treat people to some of the things she truly loved, the "list" morphed into an expensive beast that takes an entire team to curate.  Her guideline: Does she really like it enough to want to receive it herself?

This year, the Winfrey Santa sized sack contains  107 items, featuring everything from offbeat kitchen gadgets to next-level tech, with a price tag of more than 13-grand!

The cheapest item ($13.50) is Truff Hot Sauce while the priciest item ($1.525.50) is a Story Bikes electric step-through bike and then there is this - a dog DNA Test by Embark for $159. Winfrey says the test reveals a dog’s genetic age and info, as well as breed breakdown, from a small sample of slobber calling it incredible!

Whatever you say Oprah, and tell Santa Hello!
