11 Of The Most Touching Celebrity Valentine's Day Gifts, Because Not Everyone Gets A Giant Teddy Bear
What do you get for someone who already has everything (or has the money to afford everything)? That's the question that's probably on many celebrities' minds around Valentine's Day as they ponder what to get for their sweetie. Luckily, many celebs are able to pull through with a special gift that their dearest will likely remember for years to come, even if it doesn't cost as much as a car. From personalized artwork to wedding proposals, take a look back at some of the more touching celebrity gifts for Valentine's Day in years past. After all, it truly is the thought that counts.
Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum
As if being married to Channing Tatum wasn’t enough, Jenna Dewan-Tatum spilled that he spoils her on the Day of Love as well: My husband likes to give me gifts from Neil Lane because of Sienna Miller. They were filming G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra, and… She told him, ‘You have to go to Neil Lane,’ and that’s how I have my amazing jewellery collection.” Dreamy and he has a personalized taste for gifts — can’t ask for much of a better Valentine than that!
Viola Davis & Her Dad
Viola Davis knows that the best Valentine’s Day gift doesn’t have to come from a relationship. She said, “My father would always give us beautiful huge cards for Valentine’s Day with chocolates. It always meant so much to me and is what I always remember about Valentine’s Day.” Even though she’s married now, it’s incredibly sweet that she still reflects on family gifts.
Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner
When asked about her best Valentine’s day gift, Ivanka Trump said, “A gorgeous vintage necklace that my husband gave me. I’m making it increasingly difficult for him to buy me things. I have a jewelry line, a clothing line, a shoe line, and a handbag line, so he has to either go the vintage route or go completely outside of the box.” You have to hand it to a fellow who knows your jewelry tastes!
Howard Stern & Beth Ostrosky
You can’t get more romantic than a wedding proposal! Back in 2007 on Valentine’s Day, Stern proposed marriage to Beth Ostrosky with a 5.2 carat emerald-cut engagement ring, worth more than $250,000. The couple married the year following, and they are still together.
Katy Perry & Russell Brand
Even though the couple eventually split, Katy Perry definitely made her Valentine’s Day gift count while she was together with Russell Brand. She reportedly bought a lilac-colored Bentley Brooklands for him for V-day, based on the one that The Who’s late drummer Keith Moon had. Not too shabby — and super thoughtful!
Katy Perry & John Mayer
As it turns out, Perry has had some luck as a V-day gift recipient as well, from her on-again, off-again boyfriend John Mayer. Mayer bought a heart-shaped 20-carat ruby ring, specially designed by Daniel Gibbings last year. If they are on-again for this Valentine’s Day, will the ring be in another shape? We will have to stay tuned…
T.I. & Tiny
T.I. splurged on some designer goods for his wife Tiny back in 2012 on the big day (Gucci, Prada, you know the deal). But that’s not all! He also arranged a special intimate dinner and hired a musician to serenade her. Maybe this year, he’ll do the crooning himself.
Shailene Woodley & Mystery Man
Sometimes the best gift for Valentine’s isn’t a material good at all. Woodley revealed that her favorite Valentine’s Day gift was simply a kiss: "My first kiss in high school was on Valentine’s Day. So it was my first kiss.” So sweet!
Stana Katic & Mystery Man
Well, looks like a way to someone’s heart is through their stomach after all! Castle star Stana Katic said her favorite Valentine’s Day gift was an edible delight: “Someone made me a pecan pie from scratch. It was such a generous moment because it was sweet. It was simple. It came from the heart and it was such a surprise.” Take notes, aspiring chefs!
Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
Swizz Beatz was sweet enough to share on Instagram that he was creating a special painting for his wife Alicia Keys. Aww! It just goes to show that some of the most special gifts come from the heart, no matter what they cost.
