Oprah’s top pick this year is a $60 deep dish cheery pie from Sweet Lady Jane. Here’s how Oprah describes it:

“Move over, yule log cake — there’s a new holiday dessert in town, and it makes a great hostess gift. California bakery Sweet Lady Jane has created a very merry, soon-to-be legendary, dare we say necessary, simply extraordinary deep-dish cherry pie. The buttery crust is the icing on the…oops!” — Oprah

Coming in at $500, the Giant and Signature Turtle Basket includes 15 pounds of chocolate turtles that satisfies Oprah’s chocolate cravings.

“Sitting down? You’ll need to be to handle 15 pounds of chocolate turtles (hand-roasted nuts and caramel coated with milk, dark, or white chocolate) presented in a 5-pound edible basket. That’s 20 pounds of chocolate, people! I’ve ordered the giant version for certain friends, but smaller appetites can get the signature size.”—Oprah

At $49, Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc Salt Cellar also makes Oprah’s list.

“Give the gift of good taste with this three-tiered bamboo box filled with some of my favorite chef’s favorite finishing salts: Maldon sea salt for fish, sel gris for meat and fleur de sel for vegetables.” —Oprah

At $80, Oprah recommends a Gift Box of Six Artisan Cheeses from Plymouth Artisan Cheese.

“Crafted, cut, and waxed by hand since 1890 by one of the oldest cheese-making operations in America, these raw cow’s-milk cheeses are happiness in a box. The six varieties include Sage and Herb, Garlic Peppercorn, and Hot Pepper.” — Oprah
