If you’ve been waiting for some guidance on what to shop for this year, Oprah is here to help. Starting today, you can shop some of Oprah's favorite things in her exclusive gift guide with Amazon. This year, she's celebrating Black-owned businesses and minority makers with products that include plenty of culinary delights and unique homewares.

Whether you're holiday shopping for a food lover or want to treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind treat, these are gifts you can feel good about shopping for. All of these items come from Black-owned businesses, and, since they're available on Amazon, you'll enjoy fast, free shipping on most of them. Here's what we're adding to our holiday wish list.


This luxe set of loose-leaf teas is perfect for any tea lover in your life. Packaged in chic metallic tins and wrapped in a ready-to-gift box, this set includes whimsical tea flavors like Noms Berry Delight, Zesty Lemon Ginger, Peppermint Devotion, Cha Cha Chai and more. Each one is ethically sourced, and $1 from each set goes towards mental health awareness causes.

Prefer coffee to tea? This limited-edition gift set includes three bags of Red Bay's best selling beans: Coltrane, Motherland and King's Prize. All of their coffee is ethically sourced and roasted in small batches in Oakland, California. In addition to being a Black-owned business, Red Bay is also a second-chance employer, meaning they hire and serve people of all backgrounds, including people of color, formerly incarcerated, women and people with disabilities.

This holiday season, spice up someone's life with these savory sauces. The Trufflin Sriracha sauce is made from a tangy blend of fermented chili peppers, spices, hibiscus and truffle-infused olive oil. The Trufflin Ranch is the perfect consistency — it's thick enough to use as a dipping sauce, but light enough to dress a salad. Delivered in a matte black and gold gift box, these sauces are crafted from premium ingredients and packed with care.

This duo includes a jar of black lava sea salt, perfect for salads, avocado toast or fish, and a jar of Hawaiian alaea sea salt, ideal for grilled vegetables, meat or chocolate desserts. Each set of salts comes wrapped in a luxurious gift box, complete with a golden seasoning spoon, making it a perfect gift for anyone who prefers the finer things in life.

Sweeten up someone's holiday with Zach & Zoe's wildflower honey. This family-owned business produces their own unfiltered and unpasteurized honey in Hunterdon County, NJ. The family was originally interested in making honey to prevent Zach's allergies. Since then, they've grown into full-fledged beekeepers. Their honey is perfect for baking delicious treats, sweetening tea or spreading on toast.

Add a flavorful gift to anyone's Christmas stocking this year. These low-sodium spices were created by celebrity chef Kenny Gilbert and come packed in a decorative gift box. Complete with recipe cards for cooking inspiration, this set includes Fried Chicken Seasoning, Moroccan Spice, Cinnamon Coffee Rub, Raging Cajun and Jerk Spice.

Calling all barbecue lovers! Pat's Rib Place has been a staple in Waukesha, Wisconsin, for more than a decade — and now, you can use their much-loved sauces at home. This set includes Pat's signature house sauce, which is a red, mild sauce, and Brown Brown Sauce, which is made with brown sugar and molasses — both packed in mason jars.

This holiday season, leave the baking to the experts, especially when it comes to pie. Based in Detroit, Lush Yummies Pie Co. uses family recipes that have been passed down for generations, and Oprah loves this Peach Butta Cobbler Pie. Made with fresh peaches, spices and flaky pie dough, this is a dessert to remember.

Take your entertaining game to the next level this holiday season and beyond! Designed by Studio Badge, a Black-owned, woman-owned business, these food-safe platters are crafted from Ghanaian teak wood and hand-cast concrete in Ghana, West Africa. Since each platter is handmade, no two are exactly the same, so you'll add something extra-special and totally unique to your serveware collection.

For a larger (and green!) option, Oprah also loves this platter. This one has a geometric, minimalist design that blends teak wood and concrete, perfect for taking your charcuterie board to the next level.
