It's hard to think of a better feeling than giving someone exactly what they want — that they would never buy themselves. With that goal in mind, the items on this list are all unadulterated splurges — which doesn't mean they all cost a bajillion dollars. (One is under $100, and several are under $200.) They're simply things that, for one reason or another, someone you love might have on their mental wish list yet never, ever quite pulled the trigger on purchasing.
There are many possible explanations for this: Some people have trouble buying a product that does just one thing — even when it does that one thing amazingly well. Others tell themselves they can make do with what they have, even if what they have doesn't really do the job anymore. Still others always choose only to spoil their nearest and dearest, taking joy in giving, not receiving.
So this year, find something on this list from Oprah's Favorite Things that's absolutely right for someone who absolutely will appreciate it: The pizza maker who wants to step up his game. The beauty lover who wants to bring the spa experience home. The music lover who wants to feel they're out at the concert without leaving the couch.
One other thing to remember about splurge gifts is that many of them, including several of those here, perfectly suit the common tradition in some families of pooling resources on a group gift. So take a look, and bring some unexpected gratitude into a loved one's holiday season.
6-Slice Digital Toaster Oven with Air Frying
For the cook who has everything, get this one thing: a professional small oven that toasts, air fries, bakes, broils, dehydrates, warms, and reheats. Everyone who shares their kitchen counter will thank you.
TrueBrew Drip Coffee Maker
Give the gift of a robo-barista to your coffee snob, with this device that grinds and brews each cup. It can produce beverages in six different sizes, and in five different brew styles. And the lack of pods or paper filters means no extra waste.
Put the "ahh" in "spa" for someone special. They'll delight in this device, which offers eight therapies, including percussive massage and a light ring that offers three types of LED therapy, among other treatments.
Cashmere Colorblock Yoke Sweater and Cashmere Pintuck Joggers
These dreamy pieces are designed to be "planet-friendly" (with at least 50 percent of an environmentally preferred fiber, like organic cotton and those produced from wood pulp, says the company). And they'll make any lounger on your list feel like a million bucks.
Classic Rain Loafers
Could someone wear their weekend rain boots around town? Of course, but this waterproof version of the preppy standby is ultra-chic, and will be a treat for any fashionista-on-a-budget on your list.
File this under the home chef's lust-worthy category: They love it, they want it, they won't buy it for themselves. So why not get it for them?

Oprah says that a person cannot have enough olive oil. This set of two varieties comes straight from an estate in Calabria, Italy, and makes an ideal gift for any frugal gourmet in your life.

EKG Pro Electric Kettle
Anyone can boil water in a pot. But not everyone can boil it to an exact desired degree level. This sleek kettle, originally developed for pour-over coffee, can — and it will appeal to your most exacting coffee drinker (or, as in the case of Oprah, tea drinker).
Helena Series Knife Block Set
Cooks always appreciate fine instruments, and the ones in this 12-piece set are handcrafted and full-tang (meaning the metal runs all the way from the tip through the handle). They're forged from German steel, with the blades sharpened to a 16-degree angle, which allows for a super-precise cut.
