Editors’ Picks: A Wedding Gift Guide

Couples who are meant for each other almost always have something of a vibe. So the question to ask before any
wedding—long before details about what to wear and what sort of toast to give—is simply: What kind of couple are
they? Are they always out on their tricked-out catamaran or huddled over a table at a romantic restaurant? Are they
throwing epic parties, conquering mountains, or Netflixing and soaking in the tub at home? Know your couple and
setting them up with the perfect gift is easy.

Are They…

Major Entertainers?

goop Home
10-Piece Cookware Set
goop, $300

Outfit the newlyweds’ whole kitchen with these 10 stunning hero pieces, all of them made with
GreenPan’s clean, nontoxic, nonstick, dishwasher-safe Thermolon Minerals Pro technology and done in
creamy ecru with gold finishings.


goop x Social Studies
Dinner Plate
goop, $45

Done in an exquisite goop-exclusive motif of lush blooms, this
made-in-Japan porcelain dinner plate fits in spectacularly with any style (and any existing dishware
assortment). These joy-inducing florals are made to be seen (there are salad plates, too, if
you’re feeling extra generous).

Alexis Steelwood
Charcuterie Board
goop, $250

A giant serving board handcrafted from gorgeous reclaimed wood? We can’t think of a better gift. This
octagonal board is the ultimate kitchen multitasker—for chopping, serving, slicing, anything. Made in a
serves-the-whole-party size, it’s the prettiest way to up their charcuterie game.


Dolce Vita 2-Piece Salad Set
goop, $180

Crafted in ultradurable stainless steel, these exquisite pieces from Mepra are beautifully ergonomic,
so they’re easy to hold and use. Streamlined and gleamy, with classic curved ends, they’re made in
Italy—and made to last.


5.5 QT Round Cocotte
goop, $350

From slow-roasting to stewing to serving, this cocotte is an all-around MVP (most valuable pot)—and now
it comes in chic black enamel that can go straight from stove to table.


Stemless Glasses, Set of 6
goop, $160

These elegant hand-blown stemless blush wineglasses make any occasion feel extra celebratory, whether
you’re having wine, a fancy cocktail, or sparkling water. The lucky recipients will have a reason to
celebrate every time they open their cabinets.


Baroncini Import & Co.
Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
goop, $60

Give a year’s worth of this next-level olive oil and they’ll think of you every time they cook (or
eat—it’s amazing to drizzle over practically anything). Made with a combination of Nocellara del Belice
olives, an ancient Sicilian variety (dating back to 3000 BCE), and Cerasuola olives, a typical variety
of the region—all pressed within hours of being picked—it is heaven in a bottle.


Smithey Ironware Co.
Carbon Steel Farmhouse Skillet
goop, $275

Inspired by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American blacksmith designs, this skillet is done in a
preseasoned, hand-forged carbon steel. It’s so beautiful, they’ll never want to put it away (we
recommend a hanging rack). Its performance rivals that of the much-loved cast iron, but unlike
cast iron, it’s extremely lightweight (only about five pounds). And the hammered handle is a gorgeous
finishing touch.


Beachy Picnickers?

Business & Pleasure Co.
goop, $299

They’ll lounge in (and love) this perfect-for-two hammock forever—it’s made of the same canvas as the
company’s amazing beach umbrellas, with added interior padding and quilting. So reclining on it feels
sort of like floating in a plush cocoon. It’s close to three and a half feet wide and just over seven
feet long, with teakwood framing and that signature cotton fringe. It even comes with a carrying case.


The Cube Portable Grill
goop, $199

Rooftops. Campsites. Beach cabanas. The Cube is a safe, portable way to fire up the charcoal grill just
about anywhere. Meaning that your picnic menus just got way more exciting. There’s even a prep table and
storage tray stacked on top of the grill, so you can get your mise en place on before firing up the


Crow Canyon Home
Vintage 16-Piece Dinnerware Set
goop, $138

These vintage-inspired enamel dishes are entirely handmade—by which we mean the steel is actually
hand-dipped in porcelain, then hand-painted after the piece has been fired in the kiln. The enamel is
nonstick and dishwasher-safe (so easy to clean). And in clean white with those chic rims, this
16-piece set is as brilliant for the beach as it is for something fancier—it’s effortless to dress
up for more formal occasions.


Business & Pleasure Co.
Premium Beach Umbrella
goop, $299

This umbrella spans six feet—meaning six feet of luxurious shade (practically heaven on a hot day)—with
thick cotton fringe trimming the pink-striped canopy. The sturdy seven-foot pole is made of reclaimed
timber, with a marine-grade aluminum handle and hinge (to direct the shade where it’s needed most). And
it all packs up neatly in a matching canvas carrier.


The Muse – Portable Light
goop, $325

This sleekly modern, supremely atmospheric weatherproof lamp is LED-battery-operated, so you can place
it on a picnic blanket or outdoor table and bring the vibes without cords. It’s even equipped with a
dimmer so you can lighten and brighten to set whatever mood you’re after (and we love the brass hardware).


Incurable Romantics?

Emporio Sirenuse
Sun Dinner Plate
goop, $150

The white-and-blue painted swirls on these hefty ceramic plates instantly transport us to the
sun-soaked setting that inspired it: the Amalfi Coast (more specifically, Le Sirenuse, brand founder
Carla Sersale’s iconic, wildly luxurious boutique hotel overlooking the sea). Handmade and hand-painted
by artisans in Italy, the plates are dishwasher-safe, and they make anything—from an incredible pasta to
a few stalks of asparagus—infinitely more appetizing.


Alhambra Water Pitcher
goop, $731

This has to be the prettiest way ever to serve any drink—lemonade, iced tea, signature cocktails, or
just plain water. The whimsical animals and swirling botanical design were inspired by the Jarra vase at
the Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain, then handcrafted by artisans from mouth-blown glass in Vienna,
Austria. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Lobmeyr, the family-owned brand that’s been creating
exquisite glassware since 1823.


The Maker
Spiritus Candle
goop, $75

A fleet of these candles will make anyone’s house smell—and feel—absolutely incredible. Airily
sophisticated eucalyptus, frankincense, cannabis, palo santo, vanilla, cedar, and ginger combine in the
enchanting scent, created by the founders of Fresh (The Maker is their new venture, along with their
unbelievably romantic hotel). And the thick, ribbed glass catches the flickering
light in the most flat-out beautiful way.

Richard Brendon
Star-Cut Coupe Glasses, Set of 2
goop, $225

There are flutes, and then there are coupes fashioned from stunning, mouth-blown crystal and etched
with a bevy of twinkling stars strewn all over. Taking inspiration from the Jazz Age, these are a little
bit Gatsby and a whole lot chic. Break them out at dinner, save them for the 10-9-8 countdown, or clink
them from a steamy tub.



Pala Ceramics
Carafe & Pour Over Coffee Set
goop, $120

It’s hard not to fall in love with this gorgeous hand-thrown, hand-glazed carafe and pour-over cone
set. It turns the undertaking of making coffee into a meditative ritual (there’s something refreshingly
low-tech about the pour-over way), the colorful pattern is a rustic kitchen flourish (the artist,
Oakland-based Chinzalée Sonami, draws on her French Tibetan roots for inspiration), and it’s easy to
tuck into a bag for a long-weekend escape. Bonus points for presenting it with a bag of the best coffee.


Glass Drip Coffee Maker
goop, $200

This smart drip coffee maker marries an elegant, minimal design (we see you, fluted water reserve) with
Zwilling’s thoughtful engineering and high-performance technology to ensure the perfect brew, every
time. The “blooming” function evenly covers coffee grounds with hot water, which releases carbon dioxide
before steeping begins for a more balanced, less sour taste. Plus, the 12-cup stainless-steel boiler
doesn’t alter flavor the way traditional copper and aluminum boilers can, which we think is just


Fair Trade Specialty Coffee
goop, $28

Delicately balanced with floral, peach, and honey notes, this fragrant medium-roast arabica coffee is
one of the most delightful ways to wake up in the morning. The beans are grown in the Planadas, Tolima,
region of Colombia by Astrid Medina—an award-winning, third-generation coffee grower and a leader in a
male-dominated industry (she won the prestigious Cup of Excellence competition in 2015)—then roasted
stateside by our friends at Common Room Roasters in Newport Beach, California. Add a splash of your
favorite alt milk (we prefer oat) or sip it black—either way, it’s straight-up delicious.


Milk Frother
goop, $100

A frothy, foamy, cloudlike layer of floating oat milk transforms their morning coffee. This frother
whips any type of milk into thick lusciousness (and automatically turns off when it’s done frothing—so
easy) so that an espresso, a matcha, a chai latte, or any cozy drink tastes barista-level incredible. It’s
one of those glorious gifts that are as useful as they are lavish.


Stagg EKG Electric Kettle
goop, $159

Chic and sleek, this electric kettle looks stunning on the counter, but it’s also got adjustable
temperature control, ranging from 135°F to 212°F (with both Fahrenheit and Celsius settings), an LCD
display showing the temperature as the water heats, and a 60-minute temperature-hold mode. And besides
looking good, the graceful gooseneck spout is designed for the smoothest, most precise pour.


Roman and Williams Guild
Kaneko Kohyo Rinka Mug
goop, $50

From Roman and Williams—the design firm founded by Gwyneth’s favorite
designing couple—these mugs were handmade at Kaneko Kohyo, a 100-year-old ceramics workshop that
originally specialized in Shinto and Buddhist altarpieces. The glazed blush-pink porcelain mimics the
warm, rustic look of hand-formed clay. The curved handle fits comfortably in your hand, and they’re
microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

Loftie Alarm Clock
goop, $149

For the best sleep, leaving your phone outside your bedroom is key. Loftie is the no-excuses alarm
clock with (of course) an alarm, night light (the warm kind, not the blue kind), and speaker, but it’s
the extras that make breaking up with your phone before bed easier: Loftie comes with a library of white
noise options, as well as a media center packed with meditations, sound baths, breathwork, and stories.
You can even sync your own content to the clock.


The Catch 2 Wireless Charger
goop, $150

The swiftest way to up the remote-work game? This dual wireless charging station, which proves that
function and fashion can coexist. Forget fussing with cords—the best part about The Catch is that you
can rest your iPhone, earbuds, et al. on this bed of butterscotch Italian leather and grab and go as
you please. Suggested use: nightstands, home offices, and kitchen countertops.



goop Beauty
“The Martini” Emotional Detox Bath Soak
goop, $40

This body-and-spirit-centering bath soak is how Gwyneth winds down at the end of the day. Infused with
pink Himalayan salt, it helps take the edge off during turbulent times or after a crazy day—and it’s a
great bath to share. Called “The Martini” after the traditional name for the last take of the day in
filmmaking, the soak is made with pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts, chia-seed oil, passionflower,
valerian root, myrrh, Australian sandalwood, and wild-crafted frankincense. You get three full servings
in one bag; give them a generous supply and we all but guarantee a happy first year.


Luxury Towel Warmer
goop, $160

What’s better than cocooning yourself in a fresh towel when you step out of the shower? Cocooning
yourself in a fresh, warm towel. For that straight-from-the-dryer feel, this warmer has a
single temperature setting that evenly heats your towels (or bathrobes, or blankets, or socks) inside
and out. You can time it to 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes; once it’s done, it turns off automatically. And
when it doesn’t need to be plugged in, the power cord can be stored neatly in the base for safe (read:
trip-free) keeping.


Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket, 15 lbs.
goop, $249

Naturally weighted with thick organic cotton yarn, the Napper is designed to mimic the calming effects
of deep touch pressure (it feels like being hugged or cuddled). And unlike other weighted blankets,
which are often filled with glass or synthetic beads that make noise when you move around, this soft,
breathable, hand-knit version is totally silent—not to mention totally machine-washable.


Organic Cotton Towel Set
goop, $240

Stacks of fresh, new, ultraplush towels make a pretty much foolproof gift; these organic, sage-green
towels are beautifully made in Portugal, with two luxurious towels and a cute checkered bath mat in each


Organic Matte Sateen Sheet Set
goop, $219

The sheer softness of this sheet set belongs in a category all its own. The matte sateen is brilliantly
smooth and shine-free, and the OEKO-TEX- and GOTS-certified organic cotton feels wondrously breathable,
whether you like to burrow in for the night or just want a light cover. Plus, it’s dyed using the CPB
method (an energy-saving technique that eliminates the need for specialty chemicals), so it’s better for
you and for the planet.


Date Night Set
goop, $199

This set includes one vibrator for the vulva and one for the penis. First up: Nova 2, a rabbit-shaped
vibrator for the vulva. The long head allows you to shape the angle just right for your G-spot, and the
short head is bendy, letting you keep it in continuous contact with your clitoris as you explore
different levels of penetration. Each head has its own motor that you can control independently, with 10
vibrational patterns and 13 intensity levels. And a partner can join in from across the room (or across
the globe) via the We-Vibe app. Second, Pivot is a penis ring with powerful, rumbly vibrations. It’s
soft, stretchy, and comfortable—just add a bit of lube to slide it on—and it fits snugly between
partners during penetrative sex. There’s one simple button on the device itself to switch between modes,
or you can use the We-Vibe app. Both toys are waterproof and made from body-safe silicone that feels smooth
and gentle on the skin and have rechargeable batteries that last up to two hours on a charge.


Game-Night People?

Edie Parker
Checkers in Rose Quartz
goop, $1,895

So striking it deserves a spot on their coffee table 24/7/365, this game set check(er)s all the boxes.
Critical checker storage on each end. Hand-poured acrylic in pretty rose quartz. Plus: a chic profile
that’s deserving of prime bookshelf real estate. Just add martinis.


The Eye Backgammon Set
goop, $330

This clear Lucite backgammon set has to be one of the best-looking ever—modern and
design-forward and, coolest of all, finished with tiny turquoise evil eyes trailing down the center,
which are meant to protect against bad spirits and, in the case of a competitive game, bad luck.


Esther Perel
Where Should We Begin – A Game of Stories
goop, $40

Our favorite intimacy-intensifying couples game of all time—it’s called Where Should We Begin?, and
relationship expert Esther Perel dreamed it up during the pandemic as a way to foster connection in a
time, as she says, “of social atrophy”—is easily adapted into a totally PG one that’s incredible for
family and friend gatherings. In either case, the game’s many brilliant questions prompt lots of
laughter, revelations, and, of course, great stories.


Richard Brendon
Diamond Double Old Fashioned
goop, $147

Hand-cut just outside London, this is some of the very finest crystal drinkware. The timeless
diamond detailing is beautiful, especially when the light hits it, making Richard Brendon’s entire set
an heirloom to last and love for generations. (A complete set is one of the more generous wedding gifts
we can think of.) This double old-fashioned glass takes an impressive amount of time and skill to
create, and it’s stunning for straight liquor or cocktails on the rocks.


La DoubleJ
Dinner Plates, Set of 2
goop, $155

These hand-painted, gold-trimmed porcelain plates designed with iconic La
DoubleJ prints elevate any tablescape. There are two plates in each set—a salad size and a main—and
each design is inspired by vintage Italian patterns dating back to 1905 for a special, one-of-a-kind


The Roman and Williams Guild cofounder originally made this candlestick on a lathe for his wife (the
other cofounder), and she liked it so much that they decided to make it for the public in silver-plated
brass. Buy a couple or mix and match with the other heights—anything goes.

Roman and Williams Guild
Reed Candlestick 4.25″
goop, $370

Roman and Williams Guild
Reed Candlestick 2.5″
goop, $280

Green Thumbs?

Modern Sprout
Smart Growhouse
goop, $239

Grow herbs, leafy greens, succulents, and more on a kitchen countertop using full-spectrum LED
technology. The light is a blend of wavelengths to support seed starting, plant growth, and flowering;
it’s also watertight, automatic (manage the daily lighting schedule from an app on your phone), and
remarkably stylish (finished in a brass plating). All you need to get started? Seeds or seedlings,
water, and a little bit of TLC—no green thumb required.


Balmuda The Lantern
goop, $149

With adjustable settings to match the ambience of the moment—from alfresco dinners and after-dark
strolls to reading in bed—the Lantern is a beautiful, lightweight, water-resistant design that will
light your way wherever the night takes you. The light source is hidden so it won’t shine directly into
your eyes, and with options like flickering candle, amber, and warm white, it’s a romantic addition to
any evening.


Microgreen Starter Kit
goop, $39

Here, all the tools they need to get growing: grow tray, seeds, and how-to instructions for the least
green-thumbed among us. Stick it on a kitchen windowsill for the best light and watch, amazed, as those
teeny little seedlings start to sprout.


Marloe Marloe
Stevie Vase
goop, $340

Where to display the fruits of their labors: this tall vase that blends organic curves with sharp
edges. Handmade and polished to perfection, it comes in either a rich metallic gunmetal or a
pebble-textured cream. It’s the perfect minimalist accent piece, somehow understated and showstopping at
once—with or without the flowers.



Equal Parts
The Cookware Set
goop, $325

The ceramic coating on each piece will help perfect your fried-egg-to-bread slide—and it keeps your
food free of chemicals that don’t belong in the kitchen, like PTFE and PFOA. When you’re not frying,
sautéing, saucing, or simmering, all four pieces nest neatly for smart storage. Plus, the oven-safe set
comes in colors like jet black and baby blue, so there’s a shade for every kitchen color scheme.


Cushion Lab
Neck Relief Ergonomic Cervical Pillow
goop, $75

Designed by ergonomists, this something-of-a-miracle pillow cradles the head and supports the natural
curve of the neck, encouraging proper alignment so you don’t wake up with kinks. Made of medium-firm
memory foam, it has a mesh inner layer that circulates air out and away (got you covered, hot sleepers)
and comes with a removable organic cotton cover. Best part: The unique shape works for both back and
side sleepers.


goop x GreenPan
Blush Padova 10-Piece Set
goop, $400

This set of pro-grade pots and pans—updated in the most beautiful blush pink (made exclusively for us,
we might add)—is essential for clean cooking. GreenPan makes the best nontoxic, eco-friendly, nonstick
ceramic cookware out there: Unlike conventional nonstick cookware, which can contain chemicals and
pollutants, GreenPan’s Thermolon coating is made without PFAS, PFOA, lead, or cadmium; it resists damage
and never releases harmful fumes, even if you accidentally overheat your pan. In addition to being safer
for you and for the environment, the durable (and dishwasher-safe), hard-anodized aluminum nonstick
coating makes for remarkably even heat distribution. And how gorgeous are those gold-toned handles?


Richard Brendon
Georgian Lilies Reflect Teacup & Saucer Set
goop, $285

Painted with a classic design popularized by King George III and Queen Charlotte back in the late eighteenth
century (and known to this day as Royal Lily), this mismatched gold-on-blue set puts a fresh spin on the
concept with a butterfly and caterpillars painted into the well of the saucer (the part that cradles the
cup). It’s all handmade from bone china in Stoke-on-Trent, a city with a centuries-old reputation for
exceptional ceramic craftsmanship—a nod to its rich historic roots.


Emile Henry
Bread Cloche
goop, $140

Designed over the course of two research-filled years, this made-in-France ceramic cloche mimics the
shape of a domed oven to ensure your bake gets the ideal amount of humidity. The result? Moist,
melts-in-your-mouth bread with an achingly flawless crust. And once your loaves are sorted for the week,
this versatile piece doubles as a roasting dish.


Essential Home Bundle
goop, $44

This collection of reimagined home essentials includes one roll of PVC- and BPA-free plastic wrap, two
packs each of freezer and zip bags made from sugarcane bioplastic, three toothbrushes (in grey, red, and
blue)—also made of sugarcane bioplastic—and four packs of postconsumer-recycled antidrip drawstring
trash bags. The brand’s mission is to make products that are “fumble-free”—meaning everything here is
thoughtfully designed for the smoothest experience possible, every time.


Smithey Ironware Co.
No. 12 Cast Iron Skillet
goop, $200

Free of chemical coatings, this cast-iron skillet is naturally nonstick when seasoned, and it’s a
versatile kitchen essential for searing steaks, grilling vegetables, or baking biscuits. Inspired by
vintage cast iron, it’s meticulously crafted in the US and designed to last forever—something to pass
down for generations.


The Siempre Recycled Blanket
goop, $298

The king of conscious comfort, Blacksaw uses deadstock waste to create some of the coziest alpaca-blend
throws in existence. Softer than cashmere and warmer than wool, the Siempre blanket is one such plush
piece. It’s made from 100 percent recycled materials that pull their weight in the great outdoors, but
we all know it’s bound to clock some quality time Netflixing on the couch. As for the minimal stripe
detailing? So good.


Focused on Family?

Zeitgeist Baby Carrier
goop, $787

This is the chicest baby carrier of all time. You can throw together something completely unremarkable
to wear—but strap yourself into this and all of a sudden you’re getting greeted with, “You look so
cute!” It’s made from a blend of cashmere, silk, and organic cotton, so it feels beautiful and
comfortable against skin (the shoulder and waist straps are also padded), and it’s designed for newborns
to two-year-olds, so it’s with you for the long haul. The yin-yang design works for all genders—and
screams “cool parent.”
