The Most Extravagant Celeb Valentine's Presents, From Platinum Cell Phones To Olive Trees
While I am here prepping for my single lady Valentine's Day and subsequent Netflix binge and Mexican food Seamless order, there are plenty of love birds out there getting all cute and lovey. I won't be a bitter lady because I love being a single gal right now, but that doesn't mean I'm not curious to know what presents my favorite celebs are getting on the day of love — and it's not your run of the mill box of chocolates, that's for sure. Check out this list of some of the most extravagant celebrity Valentine's gifts ever.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
This might top the list for the most extravagant (and personalized… and kind of odd…) Valentine’s Day gifts. But what do we expect from Angelina Jolie, the one who once wore a vial of her husband’s blood around her neck? This gift, for husband Brad Pitt, was a bit more sensible and she bought her love an $18,500 olive tree to plant on their estate in the south of France.
Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O’Connell
If you like wine, your husband can totally wrap up a nice bottle as part of a sensible Valentine’s Day dinner, right? Well, not if you’re Jerry O’Connell. Instead, he went out and bought and planted 800 grape vines in their background and called it a day.
Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber
Why give your boo a dozen roses when you can buy out an ENTIRE flower shop? That’s what Justin Bieber did for his on-off again girlfriend Selena Gomez in 2011. (Technically, this happened right after Valentine’s Day, but still counts) The massive order was delivered via multiple trucks when he said he wanted Gomez’s house to be entirely filled with all kinds of flowers. Who would not love that?
David Arquette & Courteney Cox
Ugh. I hate to think that these two are not together anymore but that is besides the point, because at one time in their wedded bliss, Courteney Cox bought David Arquette an antique carousel horse and nothing says love more than that.
Victoria & David Beckham
Back in 2006, David Beckham spent a mind boggling $8 million on a Bvlgari necklace to show his affection for his wife Victoria on Valentine’s Day. At that point, he’s just showing off.
Beyoncé & Jay Z
Jay Z must have a hard time trying to find a special gift for his wife who could essentially have ANYTHING she wants. In the past, Jay has been rumored to have gifted Bey a $24,000 platinum covered cell phone because why not? And in 2014, People reported that Jay Z kept it simple and gave her a Tacori promise bracelet for a mere $2,390. He probably whisked her away their own island afterward anyway…
Christina Aguilera & Matt Rutler
Christina Aguilera got the ultimate romantic gesture on Valentine’s Day in 2014: an engagement ring! Her then-boyfriend Matt Rutler proposed to her while on vacation in Hawaii and she didn’t waste one minute on sharing the massive rock with her social media followers. Although the price tag isn’t known, it’s safe to assume that it had a really big one, considering he spent over a year designing it with enough diamonds to blind a person.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
It’s obvious that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are totally obsessed with each other and West makes sure his lady is well aware of that fact. Last year for Valentine’s Day, Kardashian showed off an Instagram of her laying on a couch surrounded by a thousand roses. And in 2013, West gifted her with a-get ready-$73,000 Panthere De Cartier cuff. I mean….
