It's not the first time that New England has shown up big on the list of Oprah's Favorite Things, but I have to say that this time, I am REALLY excited about these things.  Oprah made some of the things on the list economically feasible for most this year too, so, if you're reading this and looking for Christmas ideas for moi, any of the following will do.  Except for the pants.  I'll buy those myself because I'm not telling you my pant size.  (it's a girl thing....)

  • Burts Bees Family Jammies:  Burt's Bees was founded in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine in 1984 and has since exploded with all kinds of products.  Although their lip balm is probably the most popular, Oprah has picked the cozy family jammies and I love them!  Great gift for not that much money.
  • Talbot's, who has headquarters in Hingham, MA made the list.  I'm not sure about a gift, however, I might go to the store and buy them myself.  There are a ton of locations to choose from.
  • Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company, originally founded in Ogunquit, Maine made the list with their Lobster Truffle Mac & Cheese.  You get four ramekins, which are super nice to have - filled with delicious mac & cheese all fancied up with lovely truffle oil, etc., etc.  This would be a big hit in my house!

Even if you can't afford anything on Oprah's list, that's not what the holidays are about anyway.  I would be very happy just to see your face.  #truth
