The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without a slew of gift guides. But there’s nothing quite like Oprah’s annual Favorite Things list to get the ideas flowing.

This year’s 104-item list is a mix of clothing, homeware, and miscellaneous knick knacks organized by categories like “The Techie” or “The Host.” While a few are crazy expensive, like the $400 Dyson hair dryer and the $399 digital picture frame, others are actually affordable. You can even get 20% off on some by using the code OPRAH at checkout if you buy online.

Here are the 13 cheapest items on Oprah’s list (and what she had to say about each):

“Your ponytailed friends of all ages need these sweet stretchy hair ties in delectable packaging.”

“I’m giving these to my nieces—and we’ll see who gets hugged first, the critters or Auntie O.”

“These professional-grade brushes (many with boar and nylon bristles) are almost as good as a day at the salon.”

BloemBox Organic Rose & Lavender Sachet: $19.95
“Some may look at this ultrafeminine sachet filled with dried organic rose petals and lavender florets and see a way to scent lingerie.”
