10 Most Expensive And Eccentric Celebrity Gifts: Jessica Simpson & Adam Sendler Top The List

Deciding on the perfect gift to give a loved one can be difficult. There are those who take the sentimental route and bank on presents that will tug at heartstrings. Others depend on the bank itself and purchase expensive treasures that will blow all past gifts given out of the water. For celebrities with bulky bank accounts and no care for how far their cash will go, giving gifts can get extreme.

Giving a gift as a celebrity can get complicated, however. Not only do celebrities have to be concerned with how their gift is received by their loved ones, but they also have to deal with the paparazzi and naysayers. When a gift goes bad, so does their publicity. Additionally, when the gift is out of the ordinary, publicity is a gift that keeps on giving, and they never hear the end of it. Here are the top ten costliest and craziest celebrity gifts.

10. David & Victoria Beckham – Two $50,000 Audis

Babysitting is hard work! As an act of appreciation for watching their four children, soccer superstar and former Spice Girl David and Victoria Beckham reportedly gifted their mothers both a $46,000 Audi. Both celebrities work in demanding careers that undoubtedly required family support to get them where they are today. Oftentimes they continue to require their parent’s assistance. If only we could all thank our parents, or babysitters, for their efforts with a brand new car.

9. Katy Perry – $100,000 Trip To Space

Buckle up, because this strange celebrity gift is literally out of this world. Popstar Katy Perry surprised her former husband Russell Brand with a seat aboard Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space ship for the sky high price of $200,000 for 2 tickets. Passengers on this plane have the chance to experience anti-gravity for five minutes before reentering the Earth’s atmosphere. Perry purchased herself and Brand both a ticket so they could celebrate his 35th birthday. Unfortunately, she couldn’t escape the gravity of their tumultuous relationship and the two divorced after 14 months of marriage. With no prenup and no gift receipt for his seat aboard the spaceship, Perry’s act of kindness never lifted off of the ground.

8. Jamie Foxx – 2 Horses for Robert Downey Jr.

Close Pals Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. have all the horsepower necessary to ride off into the sunset together. When Downey and his family purchased a ranch in Malibu, California, Foxx was reportedly ‘appalled’ by the empty stables. Call it brotherly love, call it loneliness, or whatever you want to call it; Foxx bought Downey two horses straight out of his pocket. The Iron Man was thoroughly impressed by Foxx’s gift, and in return Downey gifted Foxx the 1967 vintage El Camino that Tony Stark himself sported in Iron Man.

What has two wheels and tons of friends? Jennifer Aniston was given a beautiful $12,000 bike by her real-life and on-screen best friend Courteney Cox. Aniston told Cox that she wanted a way to avoid the traffic, and probably the paparazzi, that congest the streets of Los Angeles. These two buds exchange birthday presents every year, the strangest being an 8-speed cruiser equipped with a quilted leather Chanel seat and saddlebag.

6. Kanye for Kim – Ten Burger Kings

Just in case giving the gift of one Burger King wasn’t enough, Kanye covered his bases and bought his wife Kim Kardashian 10 Burger Kings. Now Kim can “have it her way” all around the world. The Burger King franchises that Kanye purchased for his lady are located across the pond, ranging from the UK to Italy. Burger King even offered to cater the dramatic duo’s multi-million dollar wedding. Truly a gift fit for Kings and Queens.

5. Kim for Kanye – Mice Autographed by Jobs & Wozniak

This star-studded couple gives strange and expensive gifts like it is their job. No pun intended. For Father’s Day, Kim purchased a truly nostalgic gift for hubby Kanye. Two computer mice signed by Steve Wozniak and the late Steve Jobs. Kardashian discovered these gems on eBay, where Steve Jobs memorabilia can range from $200-$6000. Between the Burger Kings and computer mice, this duo has definitely put a high price on true love.

4. Angelina Jolie – An Island

Some say love is a river, but for world famous Angelina Jolie, it is a gushing waterfall in California. The waterfall was a gift for Brad Pitt on his 48th birthday. She made this purchase so Pitt could commission a house on it in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. But wait, there is more. As if a waterfall and Fallingwater replica wasn’t enough for architecture fanatic Brad Pitt, Jolie recently purchased a heart-shaped island 50 miles off the coast of New York City. Jolie purchased the 11-acre Petra island for her hubby as a 50th birthday present. This island comes equipped with a heli-pad and two homes designed by renown architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

3. Scarlett Johannson – Gold Encrusted Wisdom Tooth

The almost always classy Scarlett Johannson gifted then future-husband Ryan Reynolds a gift he will never forget for his 31st birthday. Johansson repurposed one of her pearly white wisdom as a necklace. Soon after, this couple made the arguably wise decision to call off their engagement. Though comparable in size to a rock, and encased in solid gold, a gold encrusted wisdom tooth from the mouth of a former lover is slightly less haunting than the ring from a failed marriage.

2. Adam Sandler – Luxury Cars for Grown Ups

Funnyman Adam Sandler was so happy to work with his friends on set of the movie Grown Ups that he gave high-end cars to all of his co-stars. The funniest part? Co-star David Spade is reportedly ‘too embarrassed’ to ride around town in his new Maserati. Kevin James, Rob Schneider, and Chris Rock were also recipients of new whips, of which Rock was also too ashamed to be seen in. Sandler might want to slow down and think before making his next big purchase.

1. Jessica Simpson – Speed Boat for Tony Romo

When Jessica Simpson and Dallas Cowboy’s quarterback Tony Romo began their romance it caused quite the uproar amongst Dallas Cowboy fans. The public disapproval of their relationship escalated until fans demanded Simpson be banned from sitting in the stands on game day because she was seen as a distraction. Their relationship received even more flack when Simpson purchased Romo a custom made $100,000 speedboat for his 28th birthday. When the pair separated after two years, Simpson reportedly told Romo to keep the boat as a gift.
