We get it, Gwyneth: You're perfect.

The Oscar winner and mother, 41, announced she gets an early start on holiday shopping.

"I generally start my Christmas shopping at least two months before," Paltrow said in an interview with InStyle. "I like to get things personalized and my gifts usually require some advance time. I’m definitely a planner."

The GOOP founder — and luxury sweatpants supporter — said that last year she gifted engraved handmade cutting boards, and has given ceramic plates and initialized jewelry in years prior. "It takes it from being a normal present to being something that’s actually really special and requires a lot of thought and planning," she pressed, driving the nail a little deeper into your holiday procrastination guilt.

Folks generally get a leg up on their shopping starting Black Friday, roughly a month before Santa's reign, but two months seems a bit much? Or has Gwynnie simply outsmarted us?
