The Most Insane Celeb Gifts Ever...
by Jess Jepson
While the majority of us are overly-excited by the thought of fashion must-haves, unicorn merch and, of course, emoji poo cushions, when it comes to celeb gifts they're a whole new ball game.
They're often worth more than our house, car and ALL our belongings times by like, a million! Insane, right? So in run up to the big man’s visit this month, let’s take a look back over the most insane celebrity gifts EVER…
Those Kardashian Kars...
Most 18 year-olds can only dream of owning their first car, but I think we’re all aware by now that Kylie Jenner isn’t your average teenager. Her beau Tyga surprised her with a Ferrari at her celeb filled 18th birthday bash last year. But not just any Ferrari, a $280,000 White Ferrari. The gracious gifts didn’t stop there though, she was also given a trip to Mexico, a Rolex and on turning 18, the legal right to finally flaunt as much PDA as possible, with her much older bae, and they haven’t stopped since.
Not one to be outdone, Kendall Jenner was then given a £200,000 Rolls-Royce in celebration of her 21st Birthday. But the most insane part of this story is not the gift itself, but the fact Miss Jenner got a little too tipsy, and woke up having completely forgotten that she was even the luck recipient of the million-dollar car.
Ridin' Ma Pony...
Lady Gaga lived every little girl’s fantasy when she was surprised with a wonderful white horse, dressed in a huge pink bow, last Christmas. The present came from from her record label bosses John Janick and Steve Berman. She was ever so grateful, even posting pic to her Instagram to thank them. Stay humble Gaga, stay humble.
It comes as no surprise that loves young dream Jelena make this list. *All the feels* Back in their glory days of 2011, in celebration of Selena’s birthday Bieber rented out the entire Staples Center, for a private viewing of Titanic. Does it GET any more romantic? I think not.
Not to be outdone by the Biebs, Kim Kardashian followed in his footsteps; renting out the entire staples centre so Kanye could take part in an NBA-style basketball game, complete with a referee and cheerleaders, of course.
Here come the real #couplegoals. Every girls fantasy man, David Beckham, gifted his wife Victoria a vineyard in California's Napa Valley, reportedly costing him a seven figure sum. Yep, really.
Oh So Cheesy
John Legend gave Chrissy Teigan the present of her dreams… a giant cheese roll. Each to their own, right? It certainly made her happy though, as she documented her delight through a series of Instagram posts. It’s not the most expensive on the list, but it’s definitely rather insane.
Not Your Average Pen
Back in the days of Robsten, Robert Pattinson gifted Kristen Stewart with a limited edition white gold Tibaldi Bentley Crewe fountain pen, costing $40,000! Pattinson spared no expense, even having the pen specially engraved with the words: ‘From R.' What to get the girl who has everything, eh?
3, 2, 1…Lift off!
Katy Perry bought her ex-hubby Russell Brand a birthday trip to space, aboard Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space ship, for the insane price of $200,000. It’s a shame their marriage came to a halt before the rocket even lifted off the ground.
Courteney Cox spoilt Jennifer Aniston, gifting her an amazing $12,000 bike after she told her she was sick of traffic. I’m sick of traffic too, but nobody has bought me a $12,000 bike yet? UGH. They’re the definition of #friendshipgoals.
What A Whopper
Kanye bought Kim 10 Burger Kings. I repeat 10 BURGER KINGS. I’m not talking 10 big whopper burgers. I mean ten actual Burger King stores. So next time your scoffing down on a big whopper and extra side of fries, just think, maybe Kim K owns the store you’re stuffing your face in...
I-sland Love You So Much
Angelina Jolie bought her ex-hubby a heart-shaped island, just off the coast of New York City, as a 50th birthday present. Imagine owning an actual island, worth a jaw-dropping $12.2 million. The island even comes with two designer homes and a heli-pad. And with Angelina Jolie by your side, what more could you want?!
The Weird & Wonderful
With Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds being one of Hollywood's most idyllic couples, we often forget that they haven’t been together since, like, forever. Once upon a time, Ryan was married to Scarlett Johannson. However, judging by this weird gift, maybe their romance is best to be forgotten. As a 31st birthday present, Scarlett presented Ryan with one of her pearly white wisdom teeth, coated in gold, on a necklace…whatever floats your boat?
Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend
Beyoncé’s ex-bandmate Kelly Rowland spared no expenses when it came to the birth of little Blue Ivy, gifting her a $5,200 Swarovski-crystal studded bathtub. Giving the phrase sparkly clean a whole new meaning!
