Notorious for showering insane gifts on their family and friends, celebrities have always been in the limelight for their extravagant lifestyle. Living a celebrity life can be a huge party where birthdays would always be given special attention. Call it luck or whatever you wish, celebrities have it all when it comes to splurging on birthday gifts for just about anyone they wish to. For most of us, we need to be loaded to afford some of the million dollar gifts that often change hands although it does remain a distant dream. Nevertheless, it is always worth looking at some of those expensive gifts even if all we can do is go gaga over them.
One of the best gifts that you would find most of the celebrities gifting to the loved ones would have to be sports cars. For celebrities who happen to be guys, a Bugatti Veyron would certainly qualify for one of the best gifts that you can ever find. A $2.2 million car, wow! Beyonce bought Jay-Z one for his birthday. This put him in the elite class of celebrities who hop around in this million dollar beauty. Then again, P Diddy got his 16-year old son a $500,000 Mayback. Adam Sandler went a bit further and gifted a Maserati Quattroporte worth more than a million dollars each to the cast of Grown-Ups. Paris Hilton’s pink Bentley worth 2 million was a treat for herself while Ben Affleck rolled out a Rolls Royce Phantom worth more than 3 million for his beau J Lo. Need one say more? Celebrity gifts just keep getting better and better. Teen idol Justin Bieber brought in his 16th birthday with a Range Rover as a gift from Usher, his manager and mentor. That’s even before Bieber got his driving license. Yo You maan. Val Kilmer gifted his 1965 Chevorlet Impala, now a classic, to rapper 50 Cents. The list goes on and on and on.
Entertainment on the high seas
Another gift that is very common among celebrities would have to be yachts. Most of the celebrities like to stay away from the glare of public life, a reason why they are forced to find places and exotic islands for that much needed privacy. Tiger Woods presented a $20 million yacht to his now ex-wife as a wedding, not birthday gift. So, most of us can’t afford to even dream about sailing the high seas in our personal yacht. But, hey, that should stop you from renting a yacht as a gift for your better half. Go ahead, take the day off and sail away on a romantic vacation even if it’s just for a day.
A piece of paradise
Real estate does feature high on the celebrity gift list. More than just a sound investment for sure. Some look like mini fortresses on private islands but then again, this is about the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Naomi Campbell’s Russian billionaire boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin was gifted the Horus-Eye Eco House, a fantasy home, on her 41st birthday. Jay-Z wasn’t far behind with Beyonce becoming richer by $20 million with a plush home on a private island.
Celebrity gifts we can afford
A beauty cream worth $600 infused with diamond power could be just the perfect gift although not for someone young. A pair of sleek and sophisticated Cartier rimmed sunglasses at $850 is just what your man may love. How about a sleek pair of Luis Vuitton shoes for the lady in your life? At a thousand dollars it is well worth it for someone you love. There’s every reason to shop online for some of the finest gifts that even celebrities won’t mind even though they don’t cost a bomb.
The urge to splurge doesn’t stop when it comes to celebrities and birthday gifts. David Beckham presented Spice Girl wife Victoria with a $129,000 Hermes Himalayan Birkin Bag. Oprah sent a team of 100 employees on a $750,000 worth 10-day luxury cruise to the Mediterranean. Suri, Tom Cruise’s daughter gets a pony and $130,000 worth holiday gifts. Jude Law woos Sienna Miller with a fully restored baby grand piano and a $200,000 diamond and sapphire ring waiting for her in it.
