Gwyneth Paltrow offers up top presents in festive guide

Gwyneth Paltrow kicked off the holiday season on Thanksgiving by turning her weekly Goop.com blog into a Christmas gift guide.

The actress offered to help fans get a head start on their Christmas shopping by listing the presents she would “love to give” this year.

Her picks include a record player, a deluxe backgammon board, and a SoulCycle stationary bike, and she also shared some of the best gifts she has received, including jewelry and a chopping board personalized with the names of her kids Apple and Moses.

Paltrow writes, “Happy Thanksgiving! It’s officially the holiday season, and with that in mind, it’s time to get on top of our shopping lists.”

The actress also offers, “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.”

You can check out her wonderful list HERE.

Also, you if you don't know what to gift your man this, don't worry, Goop has you covered!!!

Most people of South Asian descent, regardless of age tend to play backgammon.
