Oprah Winfrey's annual "Favorite Things" show (which airs Nov. 26) won't include her usual pricey gifts.
In light of the tight economy, the talk show host, 54, is instead giving away only affordable items.
Audience members are also getting in on the act.
"On [Wednesday's] show, viewers reveal their creative ways to spend less over the holiday season. You'll meet a mom who shows us how to create a one-of-a-kind treasure that comes straight from the heart," the statement says. "Then, one family talks about their very own tradition that doesn’t cost a cent.
"You'll also hear some great ideas to make your holiday party memorable and affordable," reads the statement. "And, Oprah unveils a special gift that won’t cost you a thing! Find out how to have the thriftiest holidays ever."
This is the one and only Oprah episode I can tolerate each year. You know they make the studio audience sign a waiver saying that they will completely lose their sh!t once the cameras are turned on OR ELSE they go home with an Oprah coffee mug. I tune in to see the ladies praise the Lord and thank you Jesus. I eat that stuff up. Tune in Wednesday or set those PVR's.
Yes lady, you are the reason I watch.
