Oprah's new Favorite Things List includes a cute cell phone purse — on sale for $32

The list we wait for all year is finally here! No, not Santa's naughty-and-nice list; it's the eagerly anticipated roundup of Oprah's Favorite Things, packed with top-tier, gift-worthy goodies. This season's roundup includes a bunch of brilliant stocking stuffers, like a colorful crossbody purse that keeps your cell phone close at hand — and it happens to be on sale at Amazon!

This bag is a modern marvel. It's comprised of microfiber and recycled plastics that mimic leather. The result is a lightweight purse that makes only a tiny impact on the environment — but a major impact on your on-the-go style.

Oprah dubbed the JW Aylin Canvas cell phone bag the ideal gift for anyone "whose cell phone is always attached to their hip," and she's right: it has just enough space to hold a sizable iPhone 12 Pro Max and any phone that's smaller, and it also has slots for cards, cash and other small items, so it can even replace your entire purse if you want to go minimalist and just carry the basics.

The JW PEI Aylin cell phone purse is "a chic workaround to a fanny pack," wrote one five-star reviewer. "It is lightweight, sturdy and goes with a lot of outfits and colors."

Another fan wrote, "It’s super cute, held my iPhone 13 max pro and a few cards along with my ID. Super comfortable and lightweight to wear all day."

Speaking of super cute, there are four fun colors to choose from: pink, blue, green and yellow.

The look of the JW PEI purse is completed with chic gold hardware, a detail that offers the bag an upscale touch and makes it look a little more expensive than its totally sensible $32 sale price. It even has a magnetic snap closure in front for security, and because it's a crossbody style, it always stays very close to your body. At its biggest dimension, it's only seven inches high.

And of course, it's an ideal travel buddy that helps you move freely around, whether you're navigating your own neighborhood or exploring the world.

Pop this purse in the stocking of someone who's always on the move, both outside and inside the house. It's even a great housework companion, and beats the heck out of rifling around to figure out where you set down your phone.
