It’s the most wonderful—and wacky—time of the year! Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop drops its annual holiday gift guide today, and, as can be expected from the lifestyle-slash-wellness brand that propelled jade eggs and vagina-scented candles into the collective consciousness, this year’s wish list is as outrageous and over-the-top as ever.

With a few nods to the age of quarantine, Goop’s Christmas curation ranges from the fairly ordinary (e.g. a wireless charging station with built-in UV LED sanitizer and a matcha starter kit) to the eyebrow-raising (e.g. a post-structuralist vulva colouring book and a transformable vibrator necklace) to the downright bizarre (a gemstone heat therapy mat, a collar and lead bondage set, and a remote healing session by a beauty witch, anyone?). Paltrow even dedicated an entire section to “ridiculous but awesome” gifts, which includes a cut of A5 wagyu beef worth over $2,450, a pyramid-shaped commode, and a mobile home office/yoga studio/bedroom.

Here, L'OFFICIEL rounds up 8 of the most extravagant and, uh, unusual items you can consider for a truly unforgettable festive season.
