(Newser) – Gwyneth Paltrow has released her GOOP holiday gift guide, and let us start by reminding you that this is the woman who brought you the $90 white T-shirt and who considers $970 glitter boots to be an "essential" wardrobe item. The gift guide is predictably amusing, and E! runs down some of its more ridiculous items. Among them: a $100 slingshot, a $130 football, an $830 tea set, a collage of your children's artwork for $1,000, a $19-per-month gluten-free snack box subscription, $241 wallpaper, a personalized necklace that's "great ... for mom" for $3,150, a signed copy of one of Gwyneth's cookbooks for $55, and of course, a $5,800 kitchen set.

It would cost $23,066.92 to buy everything on the guide, E! calculates. Fortunately for Paltrow, her kids seem to have slightly less expensive tastes: She also revealed their Christmas lists; 7-year-old Moses asked for a video game, a $22.49 acoustic guitar, a rainbow loom, and a hamster, while 9-year-old Apple wants an iPod 5 and a waterproof case for it, plus a backpack. Interestingly, all of this is coming out as Radar is running a story about how Gwyneth, in the wake of all her bad Vanity Fair-related publicity, is being urged by her people to do something, anything, to fix her "significant image problem."
