Santa can’t compete with these wealthy gift-givers!
Can you imagine how hard it must be to find a special present for a celebrity? They have an endless supply of cash available and can buy whatever their heart desires at the drop of a hat. Needless to say, their loved ones have to think outside the box and and get pretty creative when it comes to gifting the perfect Christmas present.
It’s not unusual for a doting husband to gift multiple gifts to his wife, but David Beckham took it to a whole new level in 2005. David reportedly gave Victoria Beckham a $100,000 diamond-encrusted handbag followed by a custom-made $500,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom—but wait, there’s more! The grand finale was a $2.4 million ruby and diamond necklace from Boucheron, the famed Parisian jeweller.
During happier times, Angelina Jolie once purchased an actual waterfall in California for Brad Pitt. The unique Christmas present came after Brad said acting was his career, but architecture was his passion. Angelina had a hunch he would want to build there and she was right! The two once had plans to build a house right under the waterfall so he could enjoy the beautiful, natural wonder 24/7.
Most 5-year-old girls would be content with the latest Barbie for Christmas, but when your dad is Tom Cruise…you’re not like most 5-year-olds. In 2011, Suri Cruise put together a luxurious Christmas wish list that included everything from a pony and diamond earrings to designer gowns “that will make her look like a fairy princess.” The requests totaled up to a whopping $130,000 worth of presents, but her dad was more than happy to give it to her.
In 2010, the “Crazy In Love” singer showed that she really was crazy in love when she gifted Jay-Z a Bugatti Grand Sport for his December birthday (I sure hope it qualified for his Christmas present too). Purchasing the world’s fastest car cost the superstar a pretty penny at $2 million, but spending that kind of money is nothing when you’re one of the richest celebrities in the world. That same year, Jay-Z returned the holiday cheer by buying her $350,000 worth of Birkin bags from Hermes for Christmas.
If you follow Chrissy Teigen on social media, then you know she has never been shy about sharing her love of cooking. In 2015, John Legend decided to give his wife a foodie’s dream and wrapped up an entire wheel of parmesan cheese for the holidays. The “cheesy” gift cost her hubby a couple thousand dollars, but it paid off as Chrissy instantly took to social media to share her excitement and show off her dream Christmas present.
As Floridians, we are all too familiar with the dilemma of not living in the right climate for a white Christmas. Fortunately for Aaron Spelling, he has the funds to buy a white Christmas for his entire family! The Hollywood producer once had a snow machine deliver several tons of fake snow to his home in Beverly Hills so young Tori and her brother could have their very own “winter wonderland.” The best part? Tori loved it so much, she and her husband did the same thing for their kids in 2009.
