With just a few days till Valentine’s Day, the search for the ideal present for your lover, family, pet, or oneself is on. Look no farther than your favorite celebrity couples for ideas if you’re having difficulties figuring out what that winning present is. Sure, you probably won’t be able to shower your spouse with hundreds upon thousands of fresh flowers like Kanye West did, nor will you be able to spend $40 million on a private aircraft as Beyoncé did for Jay-Z, but it’s the sentiment that counts.
It’s no wonder that these gifts, which range from private islands to dazzling gems, come with price tags that match the degree of luxury. I’ve compiled a list of some of the most lavish and costly presents celebrities have given their other halves throughout the years. Have a look:
1. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Several news agencies claimed a few days after Christmas 2018 that West had given his wife a $14 million condo in Miami. (And you thought he handed her a $1 million cheque for Mother’s Day was a lot!) Kimye allegedly pulled out of the deal this month before it was completed, with West’s agent noting that while Kardashian appreciated the gift, she wanted a holiday house with a bit more solitude. Let’s relive all those romantic flowers that didn’t get returned as the Kardashian Wests go back to the drawing board and scour the world for their perfect multimillion-dollar holiday house.
2. Victoria and David Beckham
This summer, the Beckhams will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, which means they’ve exchanged nearly two decades of wonderful gifts, including a staggering 14 engagement rings for Victoria. The entire Napa Valley vineyard Becks gifted Posh back in 2008 is, of course, the (non-engagement ring) standout among these presents. They apparently purchased the house shortly after moving to California with their family from the United Kingdom, where David temporarily played soccer for the L.A. Galaxy. David gave Victoria the vineyard as a birthday present, and it is claimed to have cost him a seven-figure sum.
3. Cardi B and Offset
Offset fabricated a medical emergency to get his wife to Atlanta for her 26th birthday in October, when he gave her a $200,000 Lamborghini truck—despite the fact that she can’t drive due to her New York City background. Cardi gave Offset a $320,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith for his 26th birthday in December 2017, and that big birthday surprise was the appropriate follow-up.
4. Jay-Z and Beyoncé
It’s a significant deal to become a parent. Consider the following example: In 2012, shortly after Beyoncé and Jay received their first child, Blue Ivy, Beyoncé ascended to the skies to present Jay-Z with a $40 million Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet on Father’s Day. The private jet resembles a house on wings, with a living area, kitchen, bedroom, and two bathrooms, as well as beautiful cream leather furniture.
5. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Remember when Justin Bieber hired out the entire Staples Center so he and then-girlfriend Selena Gomez could see Titanic on a supersized screen in peace? As a result, it’s understandable that when the time came to propose to Baldwin, he’d go all out. Baldwin was pictured wearing a large oval-shaped diamond ring on her left hand in July 2018, only a month after they started dating. The ring is claimed to have cost Bieber approximately $500,000, and the jeweler who worked with him to custom-design it said Bieber told him he could see Baldwin’s face in the diamond at one point. Obviously, it’s stunning.
6. Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner
The Kylie Cosmetics mogul already has a dozen luxury automobiles in a spectrum of hues, allowing her to match her outfits perfectly. However, Jenner’s boyfriend Travis Scott appears to be committed to helping her expand her collection: Scott gifted his fiancée a $1.4 million Ferrari La Ferrari as a push present in February 2018, after they delivered the daughter Stormi.
Scott then decorated Jenner’s driveway with red flowers and gave her a classic white Rolls-Royce with a large red bow on the front for her 21st birthday the following August. And, as if that wasn’t enough, he surprised her with a sleek Rolls-Royce Wraith for Christmas, which, like Offset’s, begins at $320,000. Jenner’s version, on the other hand, is likely to have cost a lot more because it has a unique starry ceiling and her name written inside the doors.
7. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Brangelina was dogged by allegations about their relationship for years before their final divorce, and in fact, for several years before they even married in an intimate 2014 ceremony on their French estate. Among these reported that Jolie had bought Pitt a $12.2 million heart-shaped island and given him a $3 million watch before their wedding. While both of these claims were later discredited, one item Jolie did give Pitt was an $18,500 olive tree. The 200-year-old tree was apparently transferred to Jolie’s French chateau at the time, however, it’s unclear what happened to the pricy plant when the couple split up.
8. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Teigen and Legend, unlike their fellow celebrity couples and A-list close pals, aren’t renowned for showering one other with extravagant four-wheeled gifts. Instead, they ensure that each of their presents has the most amount of meaning conceivable, rather than the largest price tag, which may make them the most lavish of all. Consider the time Legend whisked Teigen away on a private plane for a “wonderful surprise date,” prompting her to acknowledge that she is truly the “luckiest girl alive.” And let’s not forget Teigen’s “lifetime fantasy” of receiving a huge wheel of cheese from Legend for Christmas in 2015. A decade’s worth of cheesy pasta and risotto, with a “liiiit” tableside serving tool? Priceless.
9. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Remember when Tom Cruise declared his love for Katie Holmes on Oprah’s couch? While public shows of affection are free, the customized Gulfstream aircraft he purchased for his new bride for $20 million in 2005 was not. According to the Enquirer, Cruise thought she would enjoy flying as much as he did and wanted to give her something that would “improve her life far more than a large diamond on her ring.” What was her reaction? “It’s like a bus, except quicker,” she told Marie Claire in the United Kingdom. She didn’t use it very much.
10. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck had just recently become “a thing” back in 2002. But J-Lo was so smitten with her new beau that she gifted him a $300,000 Bentley convertible to drive around LA in. Bennifer had left him by 2007, and he was ready to sell the automobile. The money was given to a children’s hospital.
11. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
For Kristen Stewart’s 23rd birthday in 2013, Robert Pattinson gave her a Bentley of a different kind: a $43,000 limited-edition white-gold Tibaldi Bentley Crewe fountain pen inscribed with her name and “from R.” It boasts a two-tone 18-carat yellow gold nib and a barrel designed after the dashboard of Bentley’s first automobile. Bentley cooperated with premium Italian pen producers to develop it, and it is one of only 40 in the world.
12. Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo
Jessica Simpson had hoped that after a couple of years of dating, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo would propose to her. She gave him the keys to a $100,000 Wake Setter speedboat for his 28th birthday. Tony kicked her out of his life just two months later, abandoning her the night before her 29th birthday. She informed the football player that he could keep the boat as a present.
13. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey, one of the world’s wealthiest women, is used to receiving lavish presents from her star visitors. Over the years, she’s received gifts from Jerry Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica, including a closet full of Christian Louboutin shoes (21 pairs valued at $1,600 each), a room full of Casa Blanca lilies from Simon Cowell, and a 1988 Rolls-Royce Corniche II convertible ($100,000) from good friend John Travolta. The most expensive of them, though, was a $250,000 white Bentley that Tyler Perry gifted her – and her best friend Gayle — for Christmas in 2011.
14. Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston
Why wouldn’t Jennifer Aniston’s BFF Courteney Cox take her seriously if she indicated an interest in cycling? She was so taken by Aniston that she purchased her a one-of-a-kind Chanel bike with eight gears, a quilted leather seat, and a Chanel-embossed saddlebag for $12,000. Oh, and jeweled pant clips are a must-have for cyclists.
15. Marc Anthony and J-Lo
When it comes to J- Lo’s relationships, it appears that love comes at a price. Marc Anthony gifted her a $300,000 canary yellow diamond ring after her twins Max and Emme were born. According to rumors, he then followed up with $2.5 million diamond earrings inscribed with the twins’ initials and imported from South Africa.
