Oprah Winfrey -- The Big O Christmas Dilemma (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Like every other problem in your life -- Oprah Winfrey can remove your holiday stress about buying gifts ... and you don't even have to be filthy rich ... although that never hurts.

We talked to Oprah in NYC this morning, and asked her if the holidays actually suck for her? Think about it -- everyone has inflated expectations of what she's gonna give ... and what the hell do you buy FOR Oprah??!!

Oprah insists it's "easy" to shop for her ... though we're not buying that based on her reaction when we asked the best gift she's ever gotten. 

As for the giving part? Just watch -- we should all take O's advice. And again ... wouldn't hurt to have her money.
