Bose Sleepbuds II
These aren’t some regular headphones. Sleepbuds, while they look like headphones, are designed for sleep and don’t stream music or podcasts. Instead they deliver relaxing and noise-masking sounds to help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night.
“Drown out a partner’s snoring or listen to white noise at night with these earbuds,” Oprah noted in her gift guide of the sleepbuds. “They are so darn comfortable— even if you sleep with your ear smushed up against the pillow.”
Snappy Screen Snap Clean Hands
This touchless mist hand sanitizer makes germ-free living so much easier. One cartridge offers 3000+ sprays and comes in a number of fresh, clean scents.
“This new little wonder makes hand sanitizer handsfree,” Oprah wrote. “Touchless motion-sensing technology delivers a moisturizing mist of protection in one of four scents—and it looks way cooler than anything else I’ve seen.”

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Ribbed Hooded Robes
Barefoot Dreams is a Kardashian favorite brand, known for its super soft blankets and more. Oprah chose the hooded robes for her list for the ultimate feeling of post-bath plushness and warmth.
“What I know for sure: A yummy-feeling bathrobe is a guaranteed crowd pleaser,” Oprah wrote. “And some days a robe (and pj’s) may be the outfit of the day, so it needs to be great. I like that these have a roomy fit and that the ribbed material and hood up the cozy factor even more.”

I visited the Louvre right from the comfort of my living room. They’d be a great gift for anyone who enjoys new explorations.”
