Including vibrators, jewel-encrusted toilet seat and trip to the outer space, here are the most extraordinary presents that celebrities give to their loved ones.
Deciding on the perfect present for a loved one is never easy. For most people with limited financial situation, they would take a sentimental route and choose a gift that is one to remember. As for celebrities, people may think they will go big with their gifts and give expensive cars and jewels for their favorite people. However, that’s not always the case.
While it’s true that cars, houses or jewels are among celebrities’ go-to choices when it comes to gifts, some others opt for something extremely unique. Seemingly aiming to make it more special, some of these stars give their loved ones something that even normal people won’t think of.
Starting from vibrators to jewel-encrusted toilet seat, here are the most unique gifts from celebrities to each other.
1. Katy Perry for Russell Brand – $100,000 Trip to Space
Katy Perry and her former husband Russell Brand apparently were not interested in spending his 35th birthday in an ordinary place. Literally going out of this world, the “E.T.” singer gifted Brand a seat aboard Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space ship for the sky high price of $200,000 for 2 tickets. The plane gave their passengers the chance to experience anti-gravity for five minutes before reentering the Earth’s atmosphere.
“Russell and I are interested in anything extraterrestrial. I mean, we’re going to space! We’re really excited,” the singer said. “There’s a group of people that work with Richard Branson, and he does the Virgin flights, and for Russell’s birthday, I got him a flight to space. Because I just thought, ‘What else can I give this man?’ ” Unfortunately, the pair split before they could live out their astronaut dreams.
2. Jamie Foxx for Robert Downey Jr. – Two Horses
One may think that Robert Downey Jr. has everything, but apparently they are wrong. The “Avengers: Endgame” actor seemingly forgot to fill his new ranch, which he bought in 2010, in Malibu with horses.
His pal Jamie Foxx was said to be “appalled” when he learned about his empty stables, so he decided to do a kind gesture by giving him two horses for his 45th birthday. Although Downey Jr. was touched, he admitted that he was “terrified of horse.”
3. Kanye West for Kim Kardashian – Ten Burger Kings
Kim Kardashian will never run out of burgers in her life. Back in 2014, Kanye West gifted his then-fiancee 10 branches of Burger King as a rather bizarre wedding present. That included European branches of the burger chain, one of them was in the U.K.
The rap mogul, who married Kim on May 24, 2014 in Paris, allegedly thought these locations are a “a perfect fit.” Additionally, it was said “that’s where he sees her future career, away from reality TV.”
4. Scarlett Johansson for Ryan Reynolds – Gold-Encrusted Wisdom Tooth
Scarlett Johansson made sure Ryan Reynolds would not forget his 31st birthday with her unique gift. In 2007, the “Avengers: Infinity War” actress repurposed one of her pearly white wisdom teeth as a necklace after encasing it in solid gold.
“She’d just had her wisdom teeth removed, so she had one dipped in gold and strung on a necklace for him,” a source revealed. “Scarlett was out of town for Ryan’s birthday but she gave him a gift this weekend in private,” the actress’ rep said, adding, “There was no one else there.”
5. David Beckham for Victoria Beckham – $1.8 Million Vibrator
Given the shocking price, the sex toy was not just an ordinary one. The platinum vibrator had a 10-carat diamond encrusted base linked to a 16-carat diamond necklace. Victoria was among the lucky owners of the vibrators, which was created by London strip-club owner Peter Stringfellow, as there were only 10 in the world.
6. Angelina Jolie for Brad Pitt – Private Island
Angelina Jolie almost literally gave Brad Pitt a heart for his 50th birthday present. In 2013, the world famous actress purchased a $12.2 million private, heart-shaped island for Pitt, who was still her husband at the time.
The island came with a heli-pad, and she also tapped renown architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who is also Pitt’s favorite architect, to design two homes in it. “As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed. The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat,” a source said. “It’s very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him.”
7. Birdman for Lil Wayne – $1M in Cash
Birdman seemingly had a hard time to choose what to give his protegee Lil Wayne for his birthday in 2008. However, the head of Cash Money Records ended up giving Wayne something that any person would never turn down while staying true to his label’s name.
Birdman presented Wayne with a Louis Vuitton briefcase containing $1 million in cash while attending his party at Miami club Mansion. The “Playing With Fire” spitter, who was sued earlier that year for alleged copyright infringement, was said to be left speechless upon learning the gift. Well, anyone would be!
8. Courteney Cox for Jennifer Aniston – $12K Chanel Bike
The vehicle was perfect for Aniston, who previously told Cox that she wanted a way to avoid L.A.’s traffic and also paparazzi. But of course, Cox wouldn’t give her bestie an ordinary bike. She opted for a Chanel bicycle that cost $12k with some jewellery attached to it.
9. Ben Affleck for Jennifer Lopez – Jewel-Encrusted Toilet Seat
During the time when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were the town’s hottest couple, it was reported that the Batman depicter had gifted the singer something beyond usual. Affleck deflated from ordinary gift options when he allegedly chose to give J-Lo a jewel-encrusted toilet seat.
“Jennifer is my princess and she deserves only the best — even when it comes to toilets,” Affleck reportedly told a pal. Costing $105,000, the toilet was adorned with rubies, sapphires, pearls and a diamond. Affleck apparently was on hand during the preparation as it was said to be designed by Affleck himself.
10. James Righton for Kiera Knightley – 100-year-old Olive Tree
Keira Knightley and James Righton tied the knot in 2013 at a low-key ceremony in France. And it seemed like the pair were one of the most romantics celebrity couples, judging by the Klaxons member’s wedding gift to the “Begin Again” star.
Instead of the usual wedding gifts, such as diamond ring or necklace, the musician bought a 100-year-old olive tree for his wife. The tree, which surprisingly cost $4,500, featured their initials engraved into the back.
