If you know anything about Oprah, you know that she has some pretty awesome favorite things. Just before the start of the holiday season, the philanthropist launches a detailed list of her favorite things from the past year. It features different categories such as health and fitness, lifestyle and of course food. From the practical to the pricey, there is something on Oprah’s list for everyone – even college students.
Something cool about Oprah’s list this year is that some featured brands are offering discounts for those who buy their products through the list. One such product, which happens to be useful for college students in colder areas, are Trio Gloves. They are the same as a regular pair of gloves, but they come with an extra glove just in case you lose one on the express bus (which is more common than you think). The company offers 25 percent off when using a special Oprah coupon code online. Thank Oprah for practicality – and warm hands.
Oprah’s list offers something especially unique for college students this year – the Orbit Key Finder. This item
may seem like something computer science majors would obsess over, but it is actually useful for everyone. The Orbit Key Finder works through an app and by attaching a special orbit on your key chain. It finds your keys by using your phone (whoa). It even works in reverse to find your phone – just push the key chain and your phone will ring even when silenced. This is the perfect device for freshmen – never lose a room key! Even the price tag is reasonable for a college budget at only $30 dollars per unit.
The Aura Smart Digital Picture Frame might be one for the Christmas list this year, but it is sure worth every penny. It will set you back about $400 dollars, but the wall space you’ll save in your dorm next semester will be worth it. Simply download the app and connect with your apple product and WIFI, and your memories will appear in a slideshow rather than taped to your wall!’
We’ve trusted Oprah’s list to be one of the ultimate holiday gift and idea guides since the 1990’s, even though she doesn’t give Maytag appliances and convertibles to her studio audience anymore. We don’t watch her on television anymore but we can still share her favorite things with her – from the average shopper to the college student.
