Last year, Meta Quest 2 was included as part of Oprah’s Favorite Things holiday gift list—and today, the honor is twice as nice, with both Meta Quest 2 and Ray-Ban Stories making the cut for Oprah’s Favorite Things 2022! The Oprah’s Favorite Things annual list is a must-have holiday shopping guide with the most decadent desserts, ingenious gadgets, and finest finds in home, fashion, and beauty.

Ray-Ban Stories are our first-generation smart glasses designed to keep you in the moment. They let you capture photos and video with built-in cameras, share adventures from your point of view, listen to music, and even use your voice to call or send messages—so you can stay present with friends, family, and the world around you while your phone stays in your pocket.

As Oprah says on, “Now, this is cool—in fact, it might just be the gift of the year! They look like classic, streamlined Wayfarer sunglasses, but they actually connect to your phone. You can listen to music or podcasts, answer calls, and even take pictures and videos. A simple tap or voice command is all it takes to do these things. And they charge in their case!”

Meta Quest 2 is your ticket to countless virtual worlds—no wires required. From immersive games and entertainment to documentaries, social experiences, and more, there’s something to satisfy every taste and occasion. And for a limited time, every new headset purchase will include an offer to download the popular VR rhythm game Beat Saber at no additional cost.*

As Oprah says on, “When the first iteration of this virtual reality headset came out, we made it a Favorite Thing because we loved the way it allowed you to play games, take fitness classes, and explore far-off places. This updated version allows you to do all that and more. Now you can explore every inch of the metaverse with a pal who also has a headset.”
