When you have a significant other, you obviously want to give them the very best. So you spend time selecting the perfect gift — one that will suit the object of your affection perfectly. And if you’re into making a lasting impression when you gift, you likely choose something that will make a statement, such as a Gucci mini bag, gold bracelets by Gold Urban or a weekend vacay to a tropical location, which are all fantastic gifts.
Celebrities, however, gift on a whole different level — often spending mind-blowing amounts — way more on one occasion than the average person makes in a year. Here are 12 over-the-top gifts from celebrities to their significant others.
1. A House Full of Roses
Kylie Jenner is no newbie to the world of extravagant gifts. As Forbes youngest self-made billionaire, it can be hard to gift the star something she can’t get herself. However, her daughter’s father and current boyfriend, Travis Scott, surprised her by decorating her entire house with thousands of red rose petals for her 22nd birthday this year.
2. A One-of-a-Kind Car
Even though, technically, she can’t drive, that didn’t stop Cardi B’s husband offset from surprising her on her 26th birthday with the world’s first super sport utility vehicle. The Lamborghini Urus cost him $200,000, but she swiftly returned the favor by surprising him on his 26th birthday with his very own $400,000 Rolls Royce Wraith.
3. A Personal Vineyard
Victoria Beckham is no stranger to receiving lavish gifts from husband David Beckham. However, one that is especially unique and totally over the top is her own personal vineyard. As of 2008, she is the lucky owner of her very own private Napa Valley Vineyard.
4. A Giant Wheel of Cheese
Not everyone dreams of cheese, but Chrissy Teagan certainly does. John Legend gave his wife the cheesiest gift of all, a huge wheel of Parmesan for Christmas. Perfect for any and all pasta dishes, the cookbook author couldn’t have been more pleased with her gift, which cost a couple of thousand dollars.
5. A Staples Center Experience
At just 17, Justin Bieber rented out the entire Staples Center to take his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez on a private date. Thanks to his celebrity status, he was able to get the job done for free; however, if you are trying to follow suit, be prepared to cough up close to $500,000 to rent out the venue for one night.
6. A Deluxe Personal Jet
Beyonce has always been a generous gift-giver, but she outdid herself for her husband JayZ’s first Father’s Day. In 2012, just after the birth of their first daughter, Blue Ivy, Beyonce gifted the new dad with his own 40-million-dollar Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet. This jet, which includes a living room, bedroom and kitchen, is pimped out to the highest level.
7. A Ticket to Space
Back in 2010, Katy Perry Gifted her now ex-husband Russell Brand a truly unique experience rather than something material. He earned a once-in-a-lifetime ticket to space for his 35th birthday. The $200,000 ticket guaranteed a ride to 365,000 feet into the atmosphere.
8. An Olive Tree
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a power couple to say the least. She was rumored to have bought him a heart-shaped island and a few other equally extravagant gifts that haven’t been confirmed. However, one thing Angeline did do was literally extend an olive branch by moving a 200-year-old olive tree to their home in France to the tune of $18,000.
9. A Fast Food Chain
Kardashian-West gifts are always one for the books. The endless flower arrangements and fancy cars are well-publicized. What you may not know about, however, is that Kanye West bought Kim Kardashian 10 Burger King restaurants as one of his many wedding presents to the object of his affection.
10. A White Christmas
When living in L.A., a white Christmas — or even snow in this part of California — is very rare. However, Tori Spelling’s father Aaron Spelling played weatherman for his kids and had a huge amount of fake snow delivered to their home in Beverly hills for $2 million. In 2009, Tori followed in her father’s footsteps and was able to gift her kids their very own white Christmas, too.
11. A Golden Tub
While in the prime of his career, Mike Tyson had extra cash to spend on his former wife Robin Givens. Instead of a fancy car, shiny ring or designer bag, he opted for a $2 million golden bathtub.
12. A Jeweled Toilet Seat
Ben Affleck also went the unique route. Back in the early 2000s, when they were Hollywood’s hottest celebrity couple, he gifted Jennifer Lopez a bedazzled toilet seat. Why? Probably because he thought she deserved the very best. Rumored to be encrusted with rubies, pearls, diamonds and sapphires, it supposedly cost him $105,000.
