Oprah’s legendary holiday shopping guide includes Facebook’s (Meta) latest standalone VR headset.
American talk show host and living legend, Oprah Winfrey, has returned with her highly-anticipated holiday gift guide, Oprah’s Favorite Things, offering shoppers a highly-curated list of her favorite products from 2021. Needless to say, it’s quite an honor to be included on the list, which is why it was such a treat to see Facebook’s (now Meta) Oculus Quest 2 VR headset make the cut.
On the website OprahDaily.com, you can find a full breakdown of Oprah’s favorite gifts separated into categories such as Beauty, Cozy, Food, Home, and Kitchen just to name a few. There’s also a category called Tech Gifts which features a handful of gadgets and devices of various makes and models. This includes the 128GB model Oculus Quest 2, currently available for $300.
“These virtual reality headsets are for teens and grown-ups alike,” says Oprah in the products description. “You can play games, watch movies, take fitness classes, or travel to far-off lands—and feel like you’re right there. I visited the Louvre right from the comfort of my living room. They’d be a great gift for anyone who enjoys new explorations.”
The Quest 2’s inclusion on Oprah’s Favorite Things 2021 holiday gift list marks a major step forward for VR. Having the support of an influential public figure like Oprah brings immersive technology closer to mainstream adoption. No doubt the Oculus Quest 2 will be a hot item this holiday season.
The 128GB model Oculus Quest 2 is available now for $300 ($400 for $256GB) in Oprah’s Favorite Things gift guide on Amazon.
