Everybody will not be getting gifts over $100.

Oprah Winfrey stunned fans Sunday when she appeared shocked that a man had a $100 price limit on a Christmas gift for his mother.

In a video posted to TikTok that has topped 651,000 views, Winfrey, 68, recommended that Colin Drummond buy a jewelry box that she included on her annual holiday gift round-up. Drummond had told the former talk show star that he was looking for a gift for his ailing mom.

“You know, a wonderful thing is that jewelry box that I had on ‘Favorite Things,’” Winfrey suggested to Drummond, who works as TMZ’s Washington bureau chief, according to LinkedIn.

“That’s too expensive for me,” he responded before Winfrey fired back.

“No, it’s not — it’s really not,” she replied. “It’s, like, a hundred and some or dollars.”

The content creator then replied that he was hoping to purchase something less expensive and within his budget.

“Lower than $100,” said the TV personality, who seemed taken aback before Drummond explained that his mother preferred sentimental gifts.

“Uhh. OK, then this is the perfect gift for your mom,” countered Winfrey. “You do a list of your top 10 reasons why you love her, and you make a beautiful card, and it’s your top 10.”

While Drummond was apparently pleased with her second suggestion — his video had an overlay caption that read, “Oprah Just Slayed Mom Christmas Gift” — commenters were not particularly impressed with the idea, with some suggesting Winfrey was financially out-of-touch from the get-go.

“The judgement when he said $100 was too expensive,” one person said.

“She said oh you poor? I got a better gift for you,” someone added

“She was SHOOK that $100 was too expensive. ‘Do they even make things that cost less than $100,’ ” said another.

The content creator then replied that he was hoping to purchase something less expensive and within his budget.

Others defended Winfrey’s statement, saying that she is wealthy, so $100 seems cheap to her.

“Oprah is a billionaire but she gave a gift suggestion that’s $100 … but y’all saying she’s out of touch lol,” defended one person.

“Her second suggestion was incredibly thoughtful,” one person pointed out.

“She’s thinking on her feet here, not prepared for this question, so, I think she did alright,” one person wrote.
