This week’s Goop is a holiday gift guide that includes a 24k “horn of plenty” iPhone speaker (649 POUNDS, of course) and your own stationary “spin class” bike (add to cart to see price). Great ideas! Get all of them for everyone!
Jesus, do we need any more reasons why people should stop acting like Apple is the cool indie hipster to Microsoft’s corporate overlord?
UGH! A new 24K iPhone Horn?! I just bought the “newest” generation 4 months ago.
i feel like the fact that GOOP is one letter away from being GOP should be a telltale sign of who this list is for
well, thanks videogum! my christmas shopping is done. 13 copies please.
one shouldered exercise top? ugh.
“Don’t get hung up on the idea that your gift has to be expensive to be memorable: Fold 1,000 paper cranes for a friend who needs a wish, or give a brooch from your collection to someone who’s admired it.”
I’m having a hard time typing this because I’m throwing up over this sentence, but hey, why not just sit down and fold 1000 paper cranes as a gift? I’m guessing your friend who “needs a wish” (wtf does that mean? i’m guessing it’s cancer-related which makes this all the worse) needs more than a shit-ton of paper cranes. Also, nothing is more patronizing and obnoxious than, “Oh hey, I know you always like this thing I own, so you can have it. I’m done with it anyway.”
But what if we don’t want everything monogrammed with the names Apple & Moses?
OF COURSE WHO DOESN’T NEED A $4000 BACKGAMMON SET??????
When a friend has a Christmas party, bring her breakfast for the next morning: a pretty tray, a loaf of good bread, some homemade butter and jam.
It might just be me and my pals, but oh man they would be so mad if I did this when I could instead of buying booze. Mostly because although I do have a butter churner (inheritance) I don’t think it would be a very good use of my time. Plus, booze. Booze is great.
I call shenanigans! How can she abuse Goop’s journalistic integrity by including a product she endorses?
If I had enough money to spend this much on presents, I would not need GOOP to tell me what to do with it!
“For the hipster in your life, a cool clutch or travel pouch…with a favorite novel plus tickets to a concert or a play tucked inside.”
I didn’t know a gift book was only acceptable as the container within another container for an expensive pair of tickets. (And reading is for hipsters, according to Gwyneth. Hahahaha.)
I was under the impression that gaudy contraptions like a golden horn of iPhone plenty were for [Boston Brahmin accent] the nouveau rich;, the kind of people who need to taught which one is the salad fork and not people like us, who know that one from birth, don’t you know. Haw haw, air kisses, Muffy! [/end Boston Brahmin accent].
