My Least Favorite of Oprah’s Favorite Things 2015.

NEW YORK (AP) — A Kardashian-worthy phone case rimmed with tiny lights, a keepsake book of “Letters to My Love” and a banana, peanut butter and chocolate cake called the Elvis are among Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2015.

Oprah’s been picking her ideal presents every holiday season for over two decades, but this is the first year she’s made it all Amazon-easy: this time around, you can peruse every last insane item from the comfort of your own home. This year’s list, which guarantees companies a bump in sales, includes 87 items, from a doggie faux fur jacket from Park Avenue and little-kid animal boots made by Emu to an elegant box of cut flowers courtesy of High Camp and Oprah’s favorite drawstring, tapered sweatpants (she owns three pairs of these, called the Vince from Melange). While declaring the sugary Elvis namesake from Carousel Cakes “stupid good,” she also put the traditional holiday yule log on notice by including a deep-dish cherry pie made by a California bakery, Sweet Lady Jane.

Making the cut are intoxicating gardenias, lilies and orchids; a fab faux-fur pet jacket, wireless speakers Winfrey calls “the creme de la creme” and the bruffin, a savory treat the Daily News celebrated in January as the “buttery love child of a muffin and a brioche.” “I’ve been picking my favorite things for more than 20 years,” says Winfrey, a woman with far-reaching interests. “But this year’s list just might be the most versatile and fun ever.” Some of the coolest and most delicious picks in the collection are linked to New York — where dreams, frankly, are manufactured daily. Grab these O-nointed hot-ticket items before they’re gone: This gift is sharp in every sense, featuring steel blades for precise cutting, go-with-everything white resin handles and a whitewashed rubberwood storage block. “I couldn’t be more excited about Jennifer Hudson’s Broadway debut as Shug Avery in the revival of ‘The Color Purple.’ The story is close to my heart for so many reasons,” says Winfrey, who was in the 1985 movie version. “If you’re giving experiences as gifts, it’s hard to beat this one.” Key tags: “Keys will never disappear in the black hole of your bag with these poufy faux-fur key chains with the letter of your choice. The List, as loyal Oprah watchers call it, was revealed Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” It was previewed for an intimate group of media and business partners the day before high atop Manhattan’s Hearst Tower, home of “O, The Oprah Magazine.” Before she gave up her talk show, Oprah revealed her picks on TV and in print. They were designed by 18-year-old college student Emma Johnson, who also suggests using them as bag charms.” “I can tell you these pepper sauces are for real!

Pass the catfish, please.” Vanilla cake with banana custard, peanut butter buttercream and chocolate ganache will get you all shook up. “Now, I don’t go around saying this lightly … but this cake is stupid good,” says Winfrey. “I discovered these potato chips in Spain this summer. The multicultural line of Fashionista Barbies (of which Oprah declares: ‘I love chocolate Barbie!’) and roomy sweatshirts in soft pink, yellow and blue that pay homage to her favorite day of the week with the slogan, “I Love Sundays.” But for the queen and her right-hand elves, pal Gayle King and the magazine’s creative director, Adam Glassman, the holidays begin the summer before, when Glassman scouts prospects at gift shows and markets around the country.

This “Namast’ay In Bed Night Shirt.” Nama fucking ugh is the wittiest thing I can muster up as a retort. (That’s alright though; they’re not very quick-tongued either: “While you catch your zzz’s, these supersoft made-in-the-U.S.A. nightshirts (also available in plus size) toss off some zingers.”) 4. He and King vet as they cull and chat with Oprah via Skype to narrow the picks. “We try everything and gain weight doing that,” laughed Glassman at Wednesday’s preview. “We smell everything. And then we do a big summit in August, where we rent out a studio and we spend two days going through probably about 500 items.” “We really choose the products based on relevancy,” Glassman explained. “Will people like it?

Winfrey’s take: “A world of yum.” The “Favorite Things” list will fill the O Magazine’s December issue, hitting stands Nov. 10, with Alvin Ailey dancers dressed as toy soldiers on the cover. Oprah & Deepak’s 21-Day Meditation Transcendence Trio CD set. “Who on your list couldn’t use some quiet time for reflection and self-discovery?” Oprah asks. But then, companies are really made by being on Oprah’s Favorite Things.” “Once a company makes the list we have to explain to them about inventory.

Some people get it and some people don’t fully understand it until maybe it’s a little too late,” Glassman said. “And there are times when people call me and go, ‘I wish I had 3,000 more, we sold out.’” No personal attacks or insults, no hate speech, no profanity.
