Don’t wait until Black Friday to snag the bag Oprah called “cute and multifunctional.”
We’re calling it now: puffer bags are going to top lots of holiday wish lists this year. The trend steals its aesthetic from the ever-practical and timelessly fashionable puffer jacket, from the swishy material to the quilted pattern to the utilitarian zippers. Surely you’ve seen the style hanging off the shoulders of some sartorial tastemaker, but you’ve likely never laid eyes on one quite like the WanderFull Crossbody HydroBag. Oprah said she hasn’t.
“Now, this is a design I haven’t seen before,” she wrote on her highly anticipated Favorite Things 2023 list, which dropped on November 1. The queen of gift-giving called the crossbody “cute and multifunctional.” Oprah’s annual list sets the wheels of holiday shopping in motion ahead of Black Friday, but you don’t have to wait that long to get 20 percent off the spiffy water bottle carrier she loves.

The cylindrical shape of the crossbody melds around your favorite drinking vessel, as long as it’s 3.5 inches or less in diameter. Inside the front zipper, you get several slots for cards, chapstick, and pens, plus plenty of room for your phone, passport, and small everyday things. “It holds my water bottle when I’m hiking in Maui,” Oprah wrote, continuing to say that “for city walkabouts, the pocket holds a phone and a credit card.”
The two-inch-wide strap is adjustable and detachable, allowing you to swap it out for a custom color combo. There are 24 styles to choose from, including elegant ivory with gold hardware, black on black, shiny champagne, olive green with a camo strap, bright orange, and hot pink. Some straps are solid; some are patterned. Some finishes are glossy and others matte.

“This water bottle bag is so attractive. I love it,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “I bought a 26-ounce Yeti Rambler to go in it, as my 46-ounce would be too heavy to tote around crossbody, and it fits perfectly.” Shoppers say the bag can carry bottles up to 36 ounces in size.
“It was lightweight and easy to get the bottle in and out or just keep it in there and take a swig,” another reviewer wrote. They said the bag was perfect for their trip to a Disney theme park, but the crossbody could also be great for airport and sightseeing days, hikes, or just as an everyday carryall. It’s the ultimate gift for any traveler — and one you don’t have to spend a fortune on. The violet, ivory, and army green colors are currently $47, marked down from $59.
Buying this sleek water bottle receptacle now will put you ahead of the curve for winter. At the time Oprah’s Favorite Things dropped, the bag had around 130 Amazon ratings (110 of them five-star), but the accessory is bound to soar in popularity now that it’s earned a coveted spot on the list.
