Holiday Issue: O Magazine’s Special Projects Editor, Kindra Hanson-Okafor, Shares Her Favorite (Holiday!) Things…
The Favorite Things List has been immortalized by Oprah herself. We couldn't resist asking O Magazine’s Kindra Hanson-Okafor what’s on her wish list this holiday season.
Kindra's 5 Favorite Things...
The Wisdom of Sundays, by Oprah Winfrey.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl. I’ve been wearing red lipstick since the 6th grade, and this one looks beautiful on a variety of complexions.
A crockpot. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Truly, a lifesaver.
Italian Leather gloves. Timeless classic and a staple this time of the year.
Alexis Bittar anything, but I really love the earrings. Everything is so beautiful and at great prices.
Stuart Weitzman Clinger Boots in white. Some say it’s a crime to wear white after Labor Day, but breaking “fashion rules” is what makes you unique!
Kindra's favorite hostess gift...
Raw Spirit essential oils in rose. It’s all organic and smells divine.
Kindra's favorite thing to give girlfriends...
For her gorgeous husband...
Eileen’s cheesecake and some “just us” time. We have a 2-year-old, so we cherish any spare moments we can get.
For her adorable son...
Planes, trains and automobiles. He’s obsessed!
For a teenage girl (easy and tricky at the same time!)...
Lumee phone case. Perfect lighting for all of their selfie needs. Ha!
For a beach get-away...
I love a great coverall, but I’m mixing it up and wearing comfortable pants instead. Helen Jon has a great fold-over beach pant!
And…. we asked Kindra: What is the best gift you've ever received?
The best gift I ever received was from my parents, who taught me through actions, that hard work and dedication would take me far in life.
Thank you, Kindra, for these amazing ideas. Happy holidays, happy shopping, and happy everything, to everyone!
