Being a celebrity gives you access to the crème de la crème of just about everything. Regardless of the occasion, famous peeps aren't afraid to drop some serious dough on the things that make their partners happy. And can you really blame them? Of course, it goes without saying that money shouldn't be the most important thing when it comes to successful relationships. But the truth is, people like giving and getting presents, no matter what they are. These lavish gifts celebs have given their partners run the gamut from ridiculously romantic to downright unbelievable.
The best part is, in the world of celebrities, you don't even have to be in a relationship with someone to justify treating them to something over-the-top. After all, how could we forget that time in 2012 when Tyler Perry gifted Oprah and her BFF Gayle King their own Bentleys? And what is one to do when a friend shows an interest in cycling? Well, if you're Courtney Cox and your BFF is Jennifer Aniston, then naturally, you show up at her place with a $12,000 Chanel bike. Here are five more outrageously indulgent things celebrities have gifted to their baes that will make your jaw drop.
Apparently, David Beckham knows exactly how to treat a lady. In 2008, Beckham gifted his wife Victoria Beckham an actual winery, which, according to The Telegraph, set him back a modest seven figures. Beckham allegedly made the grand gesture by presenting Posh Spice with a bottle of vino that had her name on it while the couple toured several wineries in Napa Valley, California. Juicy side note: Apparently Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Kate Beckinsale, Seal, and a bunch of other celebrities were wining and dining with them as well.
Celebrating Father's Day for the first time is a pretty memorable occasion, especially if your name is Jay-Z. In 2012, to commemorate the occasion, Beyoncé reportedly gave her boo a private jet that allegedly cost a jaw-dropping $40million. The Bombardier Challenger 850 was fully tricked out with a living room, kitchen, and bedroom, in addition to two bathrooms.
Getting a fancy piece of jewelry is always a nice gesture, particularly if it's a gorgeous necklace made of "28 carats of VVS diamonds." According to TMZ, this stunning piece of bling was reportedly gifted to Kylie Jenner for her 20th birthday by boyfriend Travis Scott. It's reportedly valued at $60,000.
It's no secret that Justin Bieber is currently engaged to model Hailey Baldwin. However, once upon a time, he and Selena Gomez seemed like they were destined to be together forever. At the tender age of 17 years old, Bieber allegedly rented the entire Staples Center stadium in Los Angeles so he and his then-bae could eat steaks and watch Titanic together. The best part is that he apparently got to use the arena for free, according to Staples Center management, as a thank you for selling out the venue a whopping three times.
In July 2018, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian Instagram-ed the adorable selfie above with the caption, "She wanted Italian for dinner, so..." and geotagged it in none other than Venice, Italy. While it might be a stretch to say they went on the trip because the tennis superstar Serena Williams had a hankering for pasta, nothing would be less shocking than this adorable gesture from Ohanian, who dotes on his wife on the reg. (As he should. She's a living legend.)
Needless to say, when it comes to gift giving and receiving, being a celeb affords you some extremely lavish options. And while it's certainly nice to be gifted with diamonds and stadiums and actual airplanes, it's still important to remember that really, what matters most is the thought behind the gift.
