"Favourite Things" is a single released in 2003 by the UK Hip hop/R&B group Big Brovaz. The single is a track on Big Brovaz's 2002 debut album, Nu-Flow. The Nu-Flow album was re-released for a third time only six weeks after the previous re-issue to include "Favourite Things", which was not contained on either of the previous two issues of the album.

"Favourite Things" became Big Brovaz third UK top ten hit, peaking at number two and spending three months inside the UK top seventy-five.[1] It is their highest charting single in the UK to date. Despite "OK" being a failure in Australia, "Favourite Things" returned the group to the Australian top ten, peaking at number three, matching the peak of the group's debut single "Nu Flow", and receiving a Gold Accreditation.[2]

The song received positive reviews and one of the reasons for the song's relative success is the fact that it is based upon a popular song from the musical The Sound of Music, "My Favourite Things". The single follows the same basic tune of the original song, and focuses on typically expensive and glamorous objects that the women of the group are wanting, such as diamonds, rubies, expensive cars such as Bentleys and designer clothes such as Gucci. The group also recorded a version of the original "My Favourite Things" song, including it as a bonus hidden track on their debut album and also featuring it on the CD single of "Favourite Things".

The video for the song consists mainly of the group at a funfair with bright lights and a merry-go-round.
