What to Buy From Goop's Father's Day Gift Guide — and 2 Items to Definitely Skip
Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, has never shied away from controversy. In fact, at times, the brand seems to actively seek it out. And the Goop team has chosen Father's Day as an opportune moment to drum up a little more scandal, via a Goop gift guide.
Goop's Father's Day gift guide contains two incredibly questionable recs: two different sex toys. Yes, the brand has created sex-toy-heavy gift guides before — but for Father's Day?
To be clear, there's nothing wrong with the sex toys themselves, the Lelo Hugo (a prostate massager that made our own top anal-sex-toy list) and the Arcwave Ion (a penis masturbation sleeve). But there's definitely something wrong with including them on a Father's Day gift guide.
Sure, some people may be shopping for the "daddy" in their life — but even so, we hope everyone would agree that Father's Day is a time for more appropriate picks. While there's room for more unique gifts, it's best to leave the risqué ideas for a different holiday.
The Goop gift guide for Father's Day does contain some great gift ideas, as well as some outrageously expensive ones (another element Goop gift guides are infamous for). But in case you don't want to have to scroll past the sex toys on the list, we've compiled the best of the Goop gift guide options here.

Yes, the price tag is steep, but here's a reason to splurge. You get to reap the benefits — in the form of Neapolitan-style pizzas, plank-roasted salmon, slow-cooked brisket, and cold-smoked cheeses.
