As Oprah Winfrey brings her A-game on the final season of her daily talk show, she made her annual ‘Favorite Things’ episode — in two parts — something unforgettable for her lucky audience members.

The episode, in which Oprah gifts her guests goodies including cookbooks, designer bags and even exotic vacations, always elicits blood-curdling screams of joy and intense facial expressions — for good reason. This year’s bounty included iPads for the lucky recipients.


Winfrey went so far as to crown the Apple device as her ‘ultimate’ favorite thing and unveiled the tablet dramatically by lowering it from the ceiling, flanked in angel wings.

Speaking of mobility, audience members each received a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, sparkly Ugg boots, an herb saver, custom Le Creuset cookware and music by Josh Groban.
