Oprah’s Favorite Things 2012: Skype Military Family Reunion
Oprah was proud to make this year’s Favorite Things “a special, intimate moment” for military spouses. They received an array of gifts to share with their families, including Jack Rogers Rubber Sandals and the Jetson Electric Bike. But there were still a few more things that Oprah wanted to gift to the men and women who stand behind those who are protecting America’s interests around the world. It’s a creative way to give back to people who don’t often get the credit and recognition they deserve. Oprah hooked them up with the Bose Videowave TV system and Octane Fitness Elliptical, among other gifts.
One of the best surprises of all was that a military spouse got to Skype with her husband. They were very excited to see one another. Even her husband thought she was seeing an Oprah screening, so he was surprised that she was getting a great holiday haul.

Another wife, Catherine, said she felt blessed by Oprah’s bounty. These people really are deserving and humble. Catherine said she has lost 120 pounds by helping others, including teens, stay in shape.
Oprah gifted everyone with the Octane Fitness Elliptical Machine, which has been on Oprah’s list for 2012 from the very beginning. I’ve never been a huge fan of the elliptical, but Oprah promises “you won’t feel beat up when you’re done with it.”

Oprah also gifted her guests with the 46” Bose Videowave home entertainment system. She shared her own Bose Videowave review earlier in the show, and the $5000 unit can help you replace all those cluttered remotes.
The sponsors for this special show have included Lowe’s and Southwest Airlines, which got all the spouses together for this big show. Oprah thanked everyone for being a part of her special show, but there was still one more huge surprise to give away.
