The Most Extravagant Celeb Presents Ever
It’s time for the last-minute present shopping. But while most of us will be happy with the odd voucher, some makeup and some clothes we probably don’t like, the A-list do gifts in a completely different way. Here Ahlan! reveals some of the most excessive presents given by celebs...
Tom Cruise for Katie Holmes
A private jet (Dhs73 million)
We all hate waiting in line at airports, so Tom thought he’d make sure his wife Katie would never have to do that again by buying her a Gulf Stream Jet as a wedding present! That’s definitely going to be a difficult one to top when it comes to an important anniversary!
Angelina Jolie for Brad Pitt
An olive tree (Dhs69 thousand)
We’re sure she could probably have found one a bit cheaper if she’d shopped around, perhaps used Groupon, but Ange found the 200-year-old tree for Brad as a Valentine’s Day gift. It’s now in their estate in France and is said to be doing just fine.
David Beckham for Victoria Beckham
Bvlgari necklace (Dhs29 million)
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, which must make Victoria the most popular girl around after her husband David splashed out on this pressie. Although she would have undoubtedly been happy with the necklace for years to come, he also flew out a team of Nobu chefs to celebrate her birthday in Spain!
Jay-Z for Beyonce Knowles
1959 Rolls-Royce (Dhs3.7 million)
Twenty five is a pretty big milestone to reach, so to help her celebrate it Jay bought her this incredible motor. Proving she’s also Crazy in Love with now-husband Jay, Bey topped him by treating him to the world’s fastest car for his 41st birthday – The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, costing Dhs7.5 million.
Roman Abramovich for Dasha Zukhova
Piece of the moon (Dhs1,089 million)
Most of us think a moon-light dinner is pretty romantic, but Chelsea FC supremo Roman must really be keen on his girlfriend Dasha after buying her 100 acres of the moon! It seems like a bit of a waste as she hasn’t even visited it!
Katy Perry for Russell Brand
Trip to space (Dhs717 thousand)
Katy went all out for Russell Brand’s 35th birthday, buying him a trip on board a Virgin Galactic shuttle, and even dressed up as an astronaut to present the gift. At least she knows there’s not going to be any college girls to tempt him up there!
Jessica Simpson for Tony Romo
A speedboat (Dhs367 thousand)
Jess treated her American football star boyfriend to the speed boat as a 28th birthday present. At the time a pal said, “Jessica knows that Tony has always wanted a boat. She’s hoping that her birthday gift will lead to marriage, and by this time next year she’ll be walking down the aisle with him.” That didn’t work out, but Tony did get to keep the boat.
