Here Are All of the Most Expensive Items on Oprah Winfrey’s 2015 Favorite Things List.

Oprah Winfrey has just revealed her Favorite Things for 2015, in which she’s waved her magical wand over 87 gorgeous gifts (much to the delight of their respective companies, obviously) — and this year marks the biggest list yet. “I’ve been picking my Favorite Things for more than 20 years, but this year’s list just might be the most versatile and fun ever,” says Oprah of her picks, which are featured in the December issue of O, the Oprah Magazine (it hits newsstands Tuesday), with, for the first time, a shoppable section on Amazon. The talk-show host and media mogul’s famous list of “Favorite Things” is now available in a special collection on Amazon.com AMZN, +2.29% marking the first year the list has been “curated” into this format on the shopping site. This year’s collection features items including pet ornaments, fleece gloves, stainless-steel cookware and an Apple Watch, arranged by profiles of who might like to buy or receive them, from “The Foodie” to “The Techie.” The release comes just weeks after the billionaire partnered with another big-name brand, Weight Watchers WTW, +2.61% a move that gave the weight-loss company’s stock a needed bump.

Although as some have pointed out, many of Oprah’s favorite things don’t come cheap, and they include some of her own products, including a subscription to her magazine, “O — The Oprah Magazine,” and audio CDs of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s 21-day meditation guide. The 61-year-old Weight Watchers part owner stunned on the front of the publication, dressed in a customized Marc Bouwer shimmering black evening gown with feathers adorning the cuffs of the sleeves. A few magic words from this media magistrate, right next to a buy button and Oprah is sure to rack in a healthy revenue share for her and a bump in profits for those she touts. Befitting of media royalty, Oprah was also photographed sporting a bejeweled tiara and red Apple watch as she pushed down a foursome of wooden toy soldiers all with a beaming grin. After a two-year sinning spree that included egging a neighbor’s house, illegal drag racing, visiting a brothel and urinating in public, the 21-year-old pop star reveals he has rediscovered both religion and the art of confession — in the latest issue of Billboard magazine.

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. The catalog of holiday goodies includes anything and everything a loved one might pine after—from china appetizer plates printed with birds wearing hats ($45) and dark chocolates in the shape of religious totems ($120) to a menorah made out of challah bread ($45) and a faux-fur jacket for your furry best friend ($39). While detractors dismissed him and his entourage’s hard-partying ways as evidence of arrogance and entitlement, Bieber says internally he worried that “You’re not good enough. Oprah describes the creation as including 15 pounds of chocolate turtles (hand-roasted nuts and caramel coated with milk, dark, or white chocolate) presented in a 5-pound edible basket. You try too hard.” The woman who allegedly impersonated a nurse and cared for Bobbi Kristina Brown at a hospice facility was accused of engaging in a similar charade to secure a nursing job in Washington more than two years ago.

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. But the warrant didn’t prevent Sobamowo from landing a job at the suburban Atlanta hospice where she was in charge of caring for Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. 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?

According to Forbes, Perry made $135 million between June 2014 and June 2015, with her Prismatic world tour and deals with Cover Girl, Claire’s and Coty. 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.

Lady Gaga was fourth ($59 million), and Beyoncé rounded out the top five ($54.5 million). ■ Eddie Murphy is going to be a father for the ninth time. 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.’“

The baby will be Butcher’s first. ■ Melissa Mathison, the screenwriter who crafted the enchanting worlds of iconic family films including “E.T. the Extra Terrestrial,” has died. Mathison, formerly married to Harrison Ford, passed away Wednesday at age 65 after a bout with cancer, her family said. ■ Good news for Idris Elba and “Luther” fans: He’s coming back. BBC America announced Thursday that Elba will return as the tormented London police detective John Luther for a three-hour movie special, “Luther,” at 9 p.m.
