The most wonderful time of the year is almost here, and along with the impending visit from Santa the Yuletide season also brings us the return of the annual Goop Holiday Gift Guide, when we can alternate between marvelling in awe and rolling our eyes at some of the most ridiculous, over-the-top gift suggestions served up by Gwyneth Paltrow’s popular lifestyle website.
This year’s Goop gift guide is segmented into 10 different categories, catering to travelers, hosts, lovers, health nuts, the under-18 crowd, personalized gifts, thinkers, cooks and stocking stuffers.
It’s the 10th category, however, that promises to get the most attention this year: The Ridiculous But Awesome Gift Guide, which offers all manner of over-the-top gift suggestions that need to be seen to be believed.
Some of the more outrageous items include a $3,000 leather bicycle, an $8,300 portable yurt (“glamping doesn’t even begin to cover it,” reads the tagline), an elegant $2,500 brass menorah, a $5,000 vase designed by artist Jeff Koons, and the late Dennis Hopper’s personal record collection, allowing fans of the late “Easy Rider” star to enjoy his actual vinyl at a cost of only $150,000.
There are more reasonably priced — and far more practical — gift suggestions as well, and you can check them all out right here.
