She’s the actress renowned for her strict dietary rules, but Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t so strict when it comes to spoiling her nearest and dearest. The 42 year-old has just revealed the much anticipated Christmas Gift Guide for her loyal followers, and surprisingly there’s something for everyone.
Gwyneth has divided the gift list into handy sections, labelling them ‘Go’, ‘Make’, ‘Do’, ‘Be’, ‘See’, ‘Get’, ‘Personalized’ and ‘Kids’. Items across the sections range from $26 for some Ellis Avenue sugar notecards to a Balenciaga leather jacket priced at $2614 to a $12,000 Esque vase.
The actress is famed for her collaborations and her style sense, and although some of the pieces on her gift list are clearly meant for her showbiz chums, there are many affordable items for the likes of you and me.
Here’s our pick of what’s hot on the list, but if you want to see the full guide, head to the http://goop.com/gift-guide-2014/.
