11 Lavish & Expensive Celebrity Gifts From 2014, Ranked By Jaw-Drop-Worthiness — PHOTOS
Looking back at 2014, a lot of crazy things happened in Hollywood. There were marriages, breakups, pregnancies, and feuds galore, but as we head into the new year, it's best to focus on one important subcategory: out-of-this-world, lavish, expensive celebrity gifts. While some were gifted to non-celebs — none comparing to Jennifer Hudson, who gave her longtime assistant a house in 2013 — others were celebrities giving other stars over-the-top wedding presents. Mind you, this is the year that George Clooney and Brad Pitt both became officially off the market so it makes sense that the wrapped packages came pouring in. There's no way to show your love and support better than with a little bling, or in Pitt's case, a $250,000 typewriter.
Instead of just compiling a list of gifts that will make you green with envy, I've decided to rank them — but not based on price alone. There is also the factor of general insanity and creativeness, because a bunch of cars aren't that impressive when you're rolling in the dough. If it's a private jet, helicopter, or horse, then we can talk. Maybe all of our New Year's resolutions should be to date a star, because some celebrities really do marry their fans.
11. Taylor Swift's Sweet Fan Gifts
Swift took her love for her fans to the next level by buying them all customized gifts for Christmas, even attaching handwritten notes. It doesn't matter how much they cost, because they're priceless, but some of them do look pretty pricey.
10. Lil Wayne's Two Cars For His Daughter
It was a super-sized version of My Super Sweet 16 when Lil' Wayne bought his daughter two cars for her sixteenth birthday: a Ferrari and a BMW!
9. Amal and George Clooney's Custom Cocktail Glasses
Although $3700 may not sound like a lot for a celebrity, it's a lot when they're just cocktail glasses. For their wedding, Amal Alamuddin bought her husband handmade Murano glasses for the perfect toast.
8. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Art Collection
What do you give the couple that has everything? Art for their gorgeous estate, of course! When the couple finally wed this year, guests gave them paintings by British urban artist Dom Pattinson.
7. Beyoncé and Jay Z's Helicopter
The only reason that Bey and Jay don't top this list is because he already gave her an island. Whether they bought the helicopter or just rented it for the day while they sipped champagne, it just doesn't compare.
6. Iggy Azalea and Nick Young's Car and Diamonds
Azalea gave her boyfriend a vintage car, and he followed up by giving her diamonds. Perfect exchange, I'd say.
5. Kanye West's Wall of Flowers For Kim Kardashian
No matter how much the wall of roses cost, the fact that West thought of this lavish idea is pretty incredible. Now none of my Mother's Day gifts will seem adequate.
4. North West's Hermes Bag For Her Mom
3. Britney Spears' Horse For Her Boyfriend
This isn't officially confirmed, but rumor has it that Spears bought her boyfriend, Charlie Ebersol, a horse for his birthday. It could just be that they went horseback riding, but I'm going to put her in the Top 3 either way.
2. Jolie's Ernest Hemingway Typewriter For Pitt
Jolie is a great gift-giver, which was seen when she shelled out $250,000 for Ernest Hemingway's typewriter as a wedding present for Pitt.
1. Justin Bieber's Christmas Jet
What do you get when you're an international pop star? A jet. That's what Bieber did for himself this Christmas, because sometimes having a shawty under the mistletoe just isn't enough.
