Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow Prefers Personalised Christmas Presents

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow strives to include a personal touch to the Christmas presents she gives her loved ones.

The Iron Man star prefers to give her family gifts she has made herself, rather than trawling retail outlets and overspending for typical festive presents, and she takes time to ensure her gifts for husband Chris Martin and the rest of family are full of love.

Paltrow, who also makes a point of cooking her family's turkey feast herself, reveals she is very crafty and has previously made her loved ones everything from personalised jewellery to handcrafted ceramics.

She said, “I think it's really nice that when someone opens a gift it has something personal. Last year I gave everyone these beautiful homemade cutting boards, everyone in the family's name was engraved on one side.

"I've done ceramic plates, jewellery with initials... it takes it from being a normal present to being something that's actually really special and requires a lot of thought and planning."
