Gwyneth Paltrow's Gift Guide Makes Oprah Look Like a Cheapskate

gwyneth paltrowWhat do Oprah Winfrey and Gwyneth Paltrow have in common? Besides being our spiritually impoverished modern day society's equivalents to mystic gurus (without the whole non-materialism thing, of course)? They both have their very own handpicked holiday gift guides! But here's the difference: Remember how, when Oprah recently announced her "favorite things" for 2013 we were able to tell you about a handful of actually affordable items? Well, we can't do that with Gwyneth's GOOP-approved list. Which isn't all that surprising, really -- I mean, even Oprah doesn't have her own personal fishmonger, as far as I know -- but a few of these "gifts" are so outrageously out of the average person's financial stratosphere we can't stop ourselves poking a little good-natured bitter envious fun. Here are a few of the most outrageously overpriced things you'll never be able to buy in Gwynnie's guide!

Purchasing info for all items can be found on GOOP.

    Forget sleeping in an old t-shirt, these Olivia Von Halle "Coco Royal Blue" silk PJs monogrammed with three letters are only $1,093.50!

    For only $5,800.00, you too can dine using this Malle W. Trousseau 43-piece kitchen culinary set. Or you can do what I'm gonna do, which is stick with that $20 pile of IKEA silverware sitting in the dishwasher.

  • Paperclip jewelry

    I tend to think of "paperclip jewelry" as paperclips with strings attached, but about 3 letters worth of this Hillier "paperclip" jewelry costs $3,763.00.

  • Brass tea set

    Because isn't a good cup of tea worth $830.00??
