Oprah's Favourite Things 2018 at London Drugs - Pudus Socks

For the second year in a row, PUDUS’ socks have earned one of the highly sought-after spots on Oprah’s list of holiday must-haves. This Canadian brand is family-run and even designs their acclaimed socks in beautiful British Columbia! Oprah isn’t the only one who’s loving PUDUS either; they’ve been worn by A-list celebrities, and featured on Rachael Ray, The View, and Entertainment Tonight.

You can find PUDUS socks at London Drugs in a variety of colours and patterns, including the quintessential Canadian ‘Lumberjack Red’. Just slip on a pair, and enjoy their warm, cozy goodness!

Oprah says: “Super-cushy Pudus slipper socks were a real crowd-pleaser when we wore them at my house last Christmas.”


iPhone XR

If this wasn’t already one of the most hotly anticipated tech items of 2018, it certainly is now that it has the blessing of the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey. Made entirely of glass, the iPhone XR has the most advanced LCD display on the market, and even has dual SIM technology to support two numbers.

Oprah says: “I’ve marveled at every iteration of the iPhone – but Apple has really outdone itself with the new XR.”


Apple AirPods

When someone says they really need to unplug, this is what they mean, right? These Apple AirPods are the must-have tech accessory for anyone who is Apple-obsessed and looking to ditch old-school cords – whether it’s to pair with their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple Watch. The wireless headphones automatically turn on and connect to your device as soon as you put them in your ears, and will even pause audio when you take them out. Everything from volume adjustments to making a call can be done simply by double-tapping the AirPods to activate Siri. Now that’s effortless!

Oprah says: “To live your best life is to live a cord free life. And I should know: my AirPods, which can recharge in a pocket-sized kit, are in either my ears or my purse at all times.”


Ricoh Theta SC

This tiny device will turn life’s epic moments into an immersive experience! The Ricoh Theta SC is a 360° camera, capable of capturing up to five minutes of full HD 360° video as well as high-resolution photos. The high-precision stitching technology delivers stunning results with minimal noise: even when shooting night scenes. To make sharing those epic photos and videos a breeze, the Ricoh Theta SC is compatible with iOS and Android devices. Just download the dedicated Theta+ App to create and share little planet images, or use the Theta+V to edit, add filters and background music to your videos.

Oprah says: “Get ready, shutterbugs. This 360-degree camera easily captures sweeping images and videos taken in stadiums, gymnasiums, or any other vast space.”


Samsung QLED TV

Oprah's Favourite Things 2018 at London Drugs

We’ve heard of smart TVs, but the Samsung QLED 4K Smart TV takes it to the next level with innovative tech and refined elegance and style. Groundbreaking Quantum dot technology provides consistently bright, true-to-life colours that will last with no burn-in over time. When you’re not watching TV, you can use the QLED as an information hub by displaying news, weather and more, or display a picture of your wall décor to create the illusion of a transparent screen. This ‘Ambient Mode’ background setting feature can vary depending on the environment where the TV is installed, including wall designs, patterns, and colours, blending seamlessly with the room’s surroundings.

Oprah says: “When this ultra-high-def smart TV is on, its picture is eye-poppingly pristine. When it’s off and in ambient mode, it makes like a chameleon and gorgeously disappears into the colour or pattern of the wall behind it.”


Apple Watch Series 4

Oprah's Favourite Things 2018 at London Drugs

The new Apple Watch Series 4 is said to be part guardian, part guru. This compact piece of tech can track your heart rate, has fall detection and Emergency SOS, and New Breathe watch faces: all designed to improve your health every day, while being powerful enough to help protect it. You’ll also be able to use Siri in new ways, listen to your favourite podcasts, and take phone calls and messages – even when you’re away from your phone. If you want to get your hands on one, the Series 4 is now available for pre-order at London Drugs!

Oprah says: “I’d only ever take off my Apple Watch to replace it with a new one, which is my plan with the latest model.”


Feeling inspired to get a start on your holiday shopping? Don’t forget, we can help make the experience even better with our price match guarantee! London Drugs will match any Canadian competitor’s advertised price on identical products for up to 30 days from the date of purchase.

Oprah’s Favorite Things 2017 at London Drugs

We love to partake in the old-fashioned holiday traditions: singing carols around the piano, putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, turkey and pie with the family. These days, the holidays aren’t complete without a few modern traditions as well, and any self-respecting gift-giver is sure to check out Oprah’s annual Favorite Things list before hitting the shops.

The venerable lifestyle guru has been sharing her Christmas Wish list with us for the last 22 years, and whenever a product is chosen as an Oprah favourite, it automatically becomes the hottest item of the season. This year’s list is a veritable avalanche of must-haves and fun luxuries (in fact, it’s her biggest list to date) and we are thrilled to announce that three of the items included on this prestigious list can be found at London Drugs!

Here are three of Oprah’s Favorite Things that you can pick up at your nearest London Drugs location or at londondrugs.com – for your gift list, or yourself.

PUDUS Brand Slipper Socks

Oprah's Favourite Things 2017 London Drugs Pudus

These luxurious slipper socks are made with the softest, fluffiest most comfortable lining, guaranteed to wrap your precious feet in warmth and comfort. PUDUS silicone grippers provide special anti-slip traction for your safety and comfort. Available in a wide range of colours and patterns.

Oprah says: “I put on these cozy sock slippers for the Favorite Things shoot, and I loved them! So will anyone you give them to, from toddlers to grandmas.”

Cuisinart Air Fryer Oven

Oprah's Favourite Things 2017 London Drugs Cuisinart

The Cuisinart® AirFryer Convection Oven is a premium full-size toaster oven with a built-in air fryer. That means it not only bakes, broils, and toasts, it also lets you air-fry right inside the oven. Air frying, which uses powerful ultra-hot air, is a healthier way to prepare delicious fried favourites, from wings to fries to shrimp to a full-size chicken. And since toaster ovens stay on the countertop, this fryer doesn’t have to move back and forth, from cupboard to counter.

Oprah says: “A toaster oven that bakes, broils, toasts, and has a built-in air fryer? What else can you ask for?”

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush

Oprah's Favourite Things 2017 Sonicare Toothbrush London Drugs

This Ferrari of electric toothbrushes has a Deep Clean mode for an invigorating clean, and the AdaptiveClean and DiamondClean brush heads provide 10x more plaque removal vs. a manual toothbrush for healthier gums and whiter teeth in just two weeks. Comes with a handy Charger Glass – simply place your Philips Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush in the glass to charge. The Charging Travel Case charges via USB or wall outlet, which allows you to take your DiamondClean anywhere and everywhere.

Oprah says: “The first Sonicare made the list 20 years ago, and it’s only gotten better—literally one of my favourite things that I use twice a day. This year’s version is a smart toothbrush with an app that gives feedback on brushing habits, four super effective brush heads for different cleaning modes, and sensors to adjust intensity or tell you if you missed a spot. Trust me, you’ll look for excuses to brush.”
