‘$22,700 Gold Vibrator’: Gwyneth Paltrow Slammed for ‘Tone-Deaf’ Christmas Gift Guide

Gwyneth Paltrow has been roasted on Reddit after her wellness company, Goop released its ultra-luxe Christmas gift guide. Users of the social media platform have had a field day poking fun at the curated list of items, which included everything from a USD$15,000 (AU$22,700) 24k Gold dildo to a USD$40,000 (AU$60,000) a-night stay at Fiji eco-resort Turtle Island.

While at Man of Many, we appreciate life’s luxuries, we also recognise that most people don’t possess a bank balance reminiscent of royalty. In light of this, if you’re seeking more reasonably priced ideas for the upcoming holiday season, we invite you to peruse our Christmas gift guides instead.

As soon as the Goop Christmas list made its way to Reddit, users went unsurprisingly wild in the comments. Gwyneth was quickly labelled as “hilariously out of touch” and a “tone-deaf wealthy person”, but you had to dig a little deeper to find the comedic gold.

‘Unless that vibrator has me seeing visions like that’s so raven I can’t begin to understand the price”, one person wrote.

“There’s a ton of expensive shit on here but ‘find your perfect gong with the help of a gong master’ was truly the most bizarre,” another added.

Speaking on the 60-grand Fiji holiday, one person wrote: “God that made me cringe. Like, are the Fijians getting paid an equitable amount of that 30,000-ish a day for being part of the tourist experience? Just gross.”

“Your favorite pretentious corn husk has released a holiday gift list that makes even Neiman Marcus’s Christmas book say “In this economy!??!”, another penned.

“If someday comes out and says that this entire persona was an intricate piece of performance art, I would support her getting an Oscar just for that,” commented another.

In another Reddit thread, one commenter wrote: “Man i’d love all these gifts, imagine roller skating around Turtle Island while slapping a solid gold dildo against a gong”. Another sarcastically said: “Imagine gifting a gong without a gong workshop. that would be so embarrassing.”

To be fair to Paltrow, there were other gift guides with more affordable products on the list. Perhaps this was all an elaborate marketing scheme by the company to get free PR. After all the 51-year-old went viral after she released a candle that smelled like her vagina. Genius. Well, here’s some more free press Gwyneth.
