The 8 Most Extravagant Gifts Celebrity Couples Have Given Each Other
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and what better way to prepare for one of the most stressful but simultaneously love-filled days of the year than by comparing your gift ideas with those of the rich and famous?
Celebrities are notorious for going over the top when it comes to birthdays, the holidays, Valentine’s Day, or really any special occasion that involves giving and receiving presents. But even in the world of the rich and famous, there are some people that take it to the next level.
So, whether you’re still looking for ideas on what to get your loved one, have no plans on Valentine’s Day, or just want to daydream about receiving lavish gifts like the ones below, we’ve rounded up some of the crazier presents in recent memory.
As expensive as the gift was, it wasn’t exactly a difficult purchase, as a quick Google search shows that several websites offer islands all over the world — albeit for a hefty price. So, if you’ve ever dreamed of owning a floating piece of land, you’re only a few mouse clicks away.

This past Christmas, Kanye West bequeathed Kim Kardashian West more than $200,000 in stocks from Apple, Netflix, and adidas. West could have easily purchased Kardashian something more materialistic, but instead, he looked to the future — not that we think the power couple will be running out of money anytime soon.
Not only were the gifts unique, but it was a mature move. By showing his fans that thinking about and investing in your future is cool, Kanye may have inspired a few to quit wasting money on sneakers and clothes, and instead to invest in something that will make them money.
Today on my doorstep was delivered a White Angel from heaven. It felt like the old days of the record business, she's such a spiritual girl! A heartfelt thank you to John Janick and Steve Berman, the whole Interscope family. I will ride, and care for, and love her forever. I was so surprised!❤️

Lady Gaga’s record label, Interscope Records, got the entertainer an all-white horse for Christmas two years ago. Gaga, who is obsessed with horses, seemed overjoyed at the gesture, promising to “love her forever.” Remember people: a horse is for life, not just for Christmas.

When you have friends in high places, as Rihanna most certainly does, you can expect the odd extravagant present. This Muhammad Ali book x dolphin Jeff Koons original piece was gifted to the singer by none other than her creative director/executive, Ciarra Pardo. We’re not sure how much it cost exactly, but considering several of Jeff Koons’ art pieces have sold for millions, we’re betting it didn’t come cheap.
What the sculpture means — or is supposed to be — remains up for debate, but Rihanna seemed to think it was “so sexy” and probably found the perfect spot for it in her house.
