10 of the Most Extravagant Gifts Celebrity Couples Have Given Each Other
With a few days to go until Valentine's Day, the race is on to find the perfect gift for your partner, family, pet, or yourself. If you're having trouble figuring out what, exactly, that winning present is, look no further than your favorite celebrity couples for inspiration. Sure, it may not be feasible to fill your partner's home with thousands upon thousands of fresh roses Ă la Kanye West, nor is it likely that you have $40 million to shell out for a private jet like the one BeyoncĂ© once gave Jay-Z, but it's the thought that counts. At the very least, allow the generosity of these deep-pocketed celebs to inspire youâ€”even if your budget for fresh flowers is just a tiny fraction of Kimye's.
Read on for 10 of the most lavish, over-the-top gifts celebrities have ever given their partners, and prepare for the V-Day jealousy to set in.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West A few days after Christmas 2018, multiple outlets reported that West had gifted his wife a $14 million condo in Miami. (And you thought that $1 million check he gave her for Mother's Day was a lot!) This month, however, before the sale had been finalized, Kimye reportedly backed out, with West's rep saying that while Kardashian had certainly appreciated the gesture, she wanted a vacation home with a little more privacy.
As the Kardashian Wests go back to the drawing board and search the world for their perfect multimillion-dollar vacation home, let's revisit all those romantic flowers that didn't get returned, shall we?
Victoria and David Beckham The Beckhams will celebrate their 20th year of marriage this summer, which means they've shared nearly two decades of incredible gift exchanges, including a whopping 14 engagement rings for Victoria. The (non-engagement ring) standout among these gifts, of course, is the entire Napa Valley vineyard Becks gave Posh back in 2008. They reportedly scooped up the property shortly after they moved with their family from the U.K. to California, where David briefly played for the L.A. Galaxy soccer team. The vineyard was a birthday gift from David to Victoria and is said to have set him back a seven-figure sum.
Cardi B and Offset They may be going through a rough patch in their marriage now, but just last October, for Cardi's 26th birthday, Offset faked a medical emergency to get his wife to Atlanta, where he presented her with a $200,000 Lamborghini truckâ€”despite the fact that, thanks to her New York City upbringing, she can't actually drive. That dramatic birthday surprise was the logical follow-up to the gift Cardi got Offset for his 26th birthday in December 2017: a $320,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith.
BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z Becoming a parent is a big deal. Case in point: In 2012, shortly after Bey and Jay welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy, BeyoncĂ© took to the friendly skies, bestowing upon Jay-Z a $40 million Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet in honor of his first-ever Father's Day. The private jet is basically a house on wings: It reportedly features a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and two bathrooms, complete with luxurious cream leather upholstery.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber The Biebs is known for making gigantic romantic gesturesâ€”remember when he rented out the entire Staples Center just so he and then-girlfriend Selena Gomez could watch Titanic on a supersized screen in peace? So it makes sense that when the time came to propose to Baldwin, he would go all out. In July 2018, barely a month after they started dating, Baldwin was spotted sporting a massive oval-shaped diamond ring on her left hand. The ring reportedly cost Bieber somewhere around $500,000, and the jeweler who worked with the pop star to custom-design the ring said that, at one point, Bieber told him he could see Baldwin's face in the diamond. So, obviously, it's gorgeous.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott The Kylie Cosmetics mogul already owns about a dozen luxury vehicles, in a rainbow of colors for maximum outfit-matching opportunities. But boyfriend Travis Scott seems determined to help Jenner grow her collection even further: In February 2018, after they welcomed daughter Stormi, Scott gave his girlfriend a $1.4 million Ferrari La Ferrari as a push present. Then, in honor of Jenner's 21st birthday the following August, Scott lined her driveway in red roses and presented her with a vintage white Rolls-Royce with a big red bow on the front. And because that still wasn't enough, for Christmas, he gifted her with a sleek Rolls-Royce Wraith, which, like Offset's, starts at $320,000. Considering Jenner's version features a custom starry ceiling and her name printed inside the doors, though, it likely cost quite a bit more than that.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Years before their eventual divorce, and, in fact, several years before they even tied the knot in an intimate 2014 ceremony on their French estate, Brangelina were plagued by oft-untrue rumors about their relationship. Among these were that Jolie had purchased a $12.2 million heart-shaped island for Pitt, and that she'd given him a $3 million watch ahead of their nuptials. While both of those were subsequently debunked, one thing Jolie definitely did gift Pitt was an $18,500 olive tree. Jolie reportedly had the 200-year-old tree moved to their French estate at the time, though it's unknown what has become of the pricey plant in the wake of their split.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend In contrast to their fellow celebrity couples and A-list close friends, Teigen and Legend aren't known for filling their driveway with over-the-top four-wheeled presents to each other. Instead, they make sure each of their gifts has the most meaningâ€”not the highest price tagâ€”possible, which might make them the most extravagant of all. Take, for example, the time Legend whisked Teigen away on a "magical mystery date" on a private jet, prompting her to confirm that she is, indeed, the "luckiest girl alive." And we definitely can't forget Christmas 2015, when Legend made Teigen's "lifetime dream" come true by giving her a massive wheel of cheese. Several years' worth of cheesy pasta and risotto, plus a "liiiiiit" tableside serving tool? Priceless.
