6 Celebrity Couples Who've Mastered the Art of (Extravagant) Gift-Giving
From vineyards, to waterfalls, to islands.
We all love to treat our S.O.s, and for most, that means flowers, a special dinner, or a weekend getaway. But when you're rich and famous, the gifts get bigger, pricier, and way more extravagant. Here, the celebrity couples who've gone above and beyond to indulge their loved ones.
Kanye West to Kim Kardashian
In the flower department, Kanye falls far from short. On Valentine's Day 2014, Kim received not a dozen, but a thousand red roses. The gesture was topped the following year on Mother's Day, when Kim awoke to thousands of white roses accompanied by a string quartet.
Kanye upped the sentimentality even further on Kim's 34th birthday with a bag hand-painted by daughter North West. We suspect it sits alongside Kim's other custom Birkin, designed by George Condo and gifted on Christmas 2013.
But nothing compares to our personal favorite gift—a sweet little Persian kitten given as a surprise back when the two were just dating. What more could a girl want?
George Clooney to Amal Clooney
Major props go out to George Clooney for knowing that food is the key to a girl's heart. On his and Amal's first anniversary, the actor reportedly surprised his wife by getting her favorite restaurant, a Los Angeles sushi spot called Asanebo, to open in London. We'll raise our chopsticks to that!
David Beckham to Victoria Beckham
Cracking open a bottle of wine can make any night romantic. David Beckham went one step further, granting wife Victoria ownership of an entire Napa Valley vineyard for her 34th birthday. What is it about celebrities and turning 34?
Victoria Beckham also boasts a multi-million dollar Bulgari necklace, bestowed upon her by David back on Valentine's Day 2006.
Jenna Dewan Tatum to Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum received the ride of his dreams for his 36th birthday—and no, we don't mean a car. Wife Jenna Dewan Tatum got creative for her hubby, giving the Magic Mike star a rescue horse named Cajun. Channing clearly couldn't hold back his excitement, writing "Best birthday gift ever from my wifey" in an endearing Instagram of his new best friend.
Beyoncé to Jay Z (and Vice Versa)
For his 41st birthday, Beyoncé gave Jay Z a Bugatti Veyron Sport, a.k.a. the sports car of all sports cars. Not too shabby, until you hear what Jay Z reportedly gave Beyoncé the same year for her 29th: a muli-million dollar private island. It's good to be a Carter.
Angelina Jolie to Brad Pitt
When it comes to thoughtfulness, Angelina Jolie wins in a landslide. The actress knew her husband so well that she bought him a waterfall to build a home on for Christmas 2011 ("Brad [had] dreamed of a home with the sound of a waterfall cascading under the house," said a Daily Mail source). On Valentine's Day 2010, Pitt was presented with a 200-year-old olive tree, and for their wedding, Ernest Hemingway's typewriter.
