Oprah Winfrey's 12 Days gift giveaway begins

oprahwinfrey_mct_290.jpgOprah Winfrey won't tell your her favorite things this year, but you can win a whole bunch of things she finds really cool.

Winfrey is giving away nine pages' worth of goodies from the O List Holiday Edition of her magazine; 13 winners will get that bounty (46 items in all) before the coming holidays. One of those 13 will also get tickets to see tapings of the Oprah show and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in Los Angeles.

(Hmmm, could Ellen be set to take over daytime television with Winfrey's blessing once the latter's show has ended?)

Seems pretty simple: Each day between today and Dec. 12, click around O's Web site and find a secret code. Let the games begin!

Check out the contest rules.
