How to gift like Gwyneth Paltrow London, UK

The Annual Gift Guide New York, USA

Last week, Oprah released her much-anticipated Favorite Things. And today, Gwyneth Paltrow followed suit with her own annual gift list of luxury must-haves on her lifestyle website, Goop. Among the featured suggestions are a $165 Fornasetti scented candle, Hermes poker cards ringing in at £65 ('a great hostess gift'), a Tom Dixon brass tea set (the teapot alone is $210) and a $50 bottle of 5 Olive Oil. Also aiming strictly at the high-rollers, there is a $5,800 set of kitchen tools by Malle W Trousseau, £330 Olivia von Halle pyjamas (not including the recommended monogramming, from £11 per letter), a Cowgirl Creamery cheese subscription, starting at $199 for three months, and a $1,200 membership to the exclusive Orin Swift wine club.

Gwyneth started goop in the fall of 2008 to share all of life's positives. From creating a delicious recipe to finding a perfect dress for spring, Gwyneth began curating the best of lifestyle to help her readers save time, simplify and feel inspired. Determined to publish a genuine and resourceful issue each week, for many, goop has become their most trusted girlfriend on the web.

Some items are so fancy, the retailer doesn't even list a price. Should your recipient have everything but their own coat of arms, Happy Menocal custom heraldry will take commissions. And Jennifer Creel custom jewelry comes studded with diamonds, so we daren't even imagine a quote. There are, of course, plenty of designs from Goop's collaborations, including a monogrammed clutch bag by Claire Vivier ($260), monogrammed napkins by Bespoke Home ($175 for four), and virtual stationery for Paperless Post. Ms Paltrow also recommends signed editions of her recently-published books for $55 each (otherwise $21 and $23 on

Goop has since grown into an eminent lifestyle publication, dedicated to informing and positively inspiring its audience. Goop gives readers exclusive access to recipes, travel guides, fashion, wellness tips, cultural notes and more. Incorporating the knowledge of expert contributors and tastemakers, along with our own editorial eye and uncompromising style, issues are delivered straight to your inbox every Thursday. Additionally, the publication in its entirety can be found right here on the site at any time, making a wealth of knowledge and an indispensable resource for all who love to make, go, get, do, be and see.

In fact, Ms Paltrow really has a penchant for all things monogrammed. She recommends getting recipients' initials featured on everything from Sarah Chloe bracelets ($369, also from the Goop site) to a Leather Head football to Dodocase iPad covers to LL Bean tote bags (is this a ruse to prevent returns for store credit?) 2507 479/How-gift-like-Gwyneth-Paltrow-glimpse-inside-Goop- Christmas-wish-list.html#ixzz2w9Bp7KMy

“5 Olive Oil: Pretty much the best olive oil you’ll ever taste, exquisitely presented.”

Usually by this point in the year, I am well organized, Christmas cards are ready to go, I've got a good jump on the gifts. Not this year. I am overwhelmed and a disaster. So our gift guide comes at just the right time, at least for me. We have included some old favorites and some new ďŹ nds, all of which will make Father Christmas proud. Love!

sani gourmet 5 Olive Oil, Proud Bronze Sponsor May 10-19, 2013, Halkidiki GR “...This year in particular – the year in which we will bring down the curtain on Greek gastronomy as the special focus of the Festival – the participating chefs will be interpreting, in their own distinctive style, some of the most famous and characteristic dishes internationally identified with Greece and Greek gastronomy. At the same time, Sani Gourmet 2013 will be focusing on and highlighting the simple, direct nature of the flavours and recipes of – if I may be permitted to use the term – our ‘popular restaurants’, middle-class family businesses built up through dedication and hard work, by people with a love of good food, popular with and revered by ordinary people over the years. Here in the Sani Resort, which now seems an oasis of calm in the troubled landscape of contemporary Greece, we hope that Sani Gourmet will once again bring together Greek and foreign friends, offering relaxation and pleasure, presenting a range of gastronomic delights all stamped with the genuine flavour of Greece...”

real news, athens Interview with the Vice President and Global Sales Manager of 5 Olive Oil, Mr Sompolos Ioannis Novemeber 10, 2013 Athens, Greece Ο κ.Σόμπολος σημειώνει ότι στην προσπάθεια ανάπτυξης στο εξωτερικό δεν έλειψαν και δεν λείπουν τα προβλήματα, που προέρχονται κατά κύριο λόγο από το κακό brand name της Ελλάδας. «Το μεγαλύτερο εμπόδιο είναι η έλλειψη εμπιστοσύνης. Όλοι έχουν κάποια δυσάρεστη εμπειρία από παλαιότερες συνεργασίες με Έλληνες, που δεν ήταν συνεπείς. Έτσι, όποιος Έλληνας επιχειρηματίας θέλει να δημιουργήσει σχέσεις με εταιρείες του εξωτερικού πρέπει να είναι οπλισμένος με υπομονή. Ευτυχώς το ελαιόλαδο είναι από τα λίγα πράγματα που δεν έχουμε καταστρέψει σε αυτή τη χώρα αν και το προσπαθήσαμε», εξηγεί ο κ.Σόμπολος και προσθέτει: «Η φιλοσοφία στη World Excellent Products είναι 100% επαγγελματική. Αυτό που θα υποσχεθούμε, αυτό θα παραδώσουμε».

“Wandering through the mist of culinary confusion, a few standouts definitely do appear each year as food writers, chefs, retailers and gourmands wander the acres of stalls at the Moscone Center featuring everything from cheese and olive oil to salts, meats and more exotic fare. Here are a few of this year’s stand-outs… Olive Oil more precious than Drakkar Noir: Haute olive oil is nothing new, but packaging it in luxe perfume-like bottles? Five Olive Oil is Greek olive oil packaged in bling-tastic bottles, complete with sparkles. We saw plenty of tiny luxe bottles of these oils throughout the show, leading us to wonder: Do you put this stuff behind your ears? Cause it seems far to precious for much else. ”

Τα σπάνια αρώματα μπαίνουν σε ιδιαίτερα μπουκαλάκια Thessaloniki, Greece

FIVE Olive Oil bottles London, UK

Σα μαγεμένοι πλησιάσαμε και το παρατηρήσαμε προσεκτικά. Χρυσαφί, λαμπύριζε στο φως. Επιτέλους είχαμε βρει αυτό το σπάνιο ελιξίριο για το οποίο μας είχε μιλήσει το λαγωνικό μας: στο ράφι του Παντοπωλείου Θεσσαλονίκης, κλεισμένο σ' ένα αινιγματικό μπουκάλι με τον αριθμό 5. Όπως μας εξήγησε ο Δημήτρης, το 5 Olive Oil έρχεται από το Φοινίκι Λακωνίας και χαρακτηρίζεται «το καλύτερο ελαιόλαδο του κόσμου» - ακόμα και η συσκευασία του έχει σαρώσει τα βραβεία design σε όλη την Ευρώπη. Με την πρώτη σταγόνα συνειδητοποιήσαμε πως είναι σίγουρα ένα ελιξίριο για ξεχωριστές περιστάσεις! Δοκιμάστε οπωσδήποτε την ποικιλία Unique Extra Virgin Olive Oil και θα μας θυμηθείτε!

This Greek olive oil comes in simple circular bottles and stripped-back packaging. The FIVE Olive Oil is bottled and distributed by Greek brand World Excellent Products in bottles that are different for each oil variety. Clear bottles are for extra virgin olive oil, matte black is used for organic extra virgin and matte white vessels contain ultra premium extra virgin. The product is also available in five-litre tin containers, which have rounded corners and bear the same minimal aesthetic as the bottles. %CF%84%CF%81%CE%B-


The brand's co-founder and marketing director Dimitrios Panagiotidis has also created a limited-edition design with an image of ancient Greek athletes printed in black on the matte white bottle. "We have the ambition of creating one of the finest premium olive oil brands in the world, with sensational packaging layout and excellent product quality," said the company. The branding features simple typography and a minimal logo by Greek company Designers United, which won a Red Dot Award for the visual identity last year.

home mag by athensvoice Design A LA Carte Athens, Greece Σε μια εποχή δύσκολη για την Ελλάδα, είναι πολλά τα ελληνικά brands που στρέφονται στην διεθνή αγορά σημειώνοντας πολύ καλές «επιδόσεις». Αλλά και το ελληνικό design που αποτυπώνεται στις συσκευασίες τους κερδίζει πανηγυρικά τα βραβεία και τις εντυπώσεις σε διεθνείς διαγωνισμούς και εκθέσεις. Ο σταρ του σόου και πρωταγωνιστής των απονομών, είναι το design των συσκευασιών τροφίμων. «Ο καινοτόμος σχεδιασμός και η εντυπωσιακή τυπογραφία του, σε συνδυασμό με την εξαιρετική απλότητά του, συνιστούν ένα εκπληκτικό προϊόν», είπε μέλος της κριτικής επιτροπής των Dieline Awards για το ελαιόλαδο Five, των Designers United, το οποίο πήρε την πρώτη θέση στην κατηγορία του. Δεκαπέντε διακρίσεις κέρδισαν τα ελληνικά δημιουργικά γραφεία την χρονιά που πέρασε στα Red Dot Awards, συνεχίζοντας το θρίαμβο των European Design Awards όπου η ελληνική συμμετοχή –με πέντε χρυσά μετάλλια και είκοσι συνολικά διακρίσεις- κατέκτησε τη δεύτερη θέση ανάμεσα σε τριάντα τέσσερις χώρες. Τα κουφέτα Pebbles (σχ. mousegraphics) πήραν το πρώτο βραβείο στα Dieline Awards, ενώ το ελαιόλαδο Eleia (Bob Studio) πήρε το χρυσό στα EDA. Οι κονσέρβες Trata OnIce, η σαμπάνια Blink και το Καλαθάκι Λήμνου (των Beetroot), τα ελαιόλαδα Etesian και 100% (των mousegraphics), τα φακελάκια τσαγιού Apivita (DKDesign) είναι μερικές μόνο από τις συσκευασίες τροφίμων που έχουν διακριθεί διεθνώς. Η λίστα είναι μακριά και η επιτυχία μεγάλη –πόσο μάλλον για μια χώρα που δοκιμάζεται από την οικονομική κρίση.

“Είναι όμορφες, φρέσκιες, δημιουργικές. Οι νέες συσκευασίες τροφίμων μάς κάνουν να κοιτάξουμε πιο προσεκτικά τα ράφια του σούπερ μάρκετ. Και να αναθεωρήσουμε όσα ξέραμε για το περιτύλιγμα της γεύσης. ”

With participations from 34 european countries (a record number), picking out the winners couldn't have been an easy task.The ED-Awards jury though, made up of representatives from 15 deifferent design magazines, is the most competent of its kind.
