It's one thing to flip through a gift catalog and another entirely when Hollywood's arbiter of taste, Gwyneth Paltrow , offers her top picks for the holidays. This morning, the star's lifestyle brand, Goop, released its annual gift guide , which contained more than 50 picks hand-selected by Gwyneth herself. Here are a few food-related favorites that we can't help but want for ourselves.
Rok Espresso Maker
Gwyneth insists this hand-cranked Rok espresso machine  ($145) is "cool for a dude," but we have to admit: we want one for ourselves.
Rust Designs Birch Dinnerware
We can tell Gwyneth simply adores these birch china pieces  ($55-$115) because of their "birch trees with initials 'carved in' and even full family trees." Can't afford the whole shebang? Pick up a birch mug set  ($62).
Five Olive Oil
"Pretty much the best olive oil you'll ever taste, exquisitely presented," Gwyneth writes of Five Olive Oils  ($45-$50). That's because they're produced by the cold-extraction method at low temperatures under very controlled conditions.
Rikke Hagen Cognac Glasses For Normann Copenhagen
Gwyneth called out these barware pieces, raving that she loves "a glass that rolls to let the Cognac breathe. Design follows function." Indeed, designer Rikke Hagen's Cognac tumblers  ($50 for two) are both stylish and useful.
Cowgirl Creamery Cheese Club
Consider this "artisan organic cheese club from the country's premier cheesemongers," Gwyneth suggests. We'd give the three-month subscription  ($199) to our closest cheesemonger-wannabe friends.
Soft Cities Mapkins
Gwyneth loves that these custom map napkins  ($79 for four) feature "up to three locations marked in your city," and we have to agree that the concept is crazy cool. Enter your location and personalized markers on the website, and Soft Cities will whip up a design custom-made for you (we like the Lemondrop style, pictured here).
