If you’re tearing your hair out trying to find a gift for Mum or your other half, spare a thought for the A-list. They have to buy something for the person who has literally everything — a shower gel gift-set simply won’t cut it.
From jewels to jets, there have been some extravagant celebrity gifts over the years. Here, Daniel Footwear talks us through some of the most lavish and luxurious:
North West to Kim Kardashian: A Personalised Gift for Mum
She may only be three but North West certainly knows how to give an expensive gift! In 2014, it seems Nori raided her piggy bank to buy mum Kim Kardashian a £16,000 Hermés Birkin bag for her 34th Birthday.
One of the hottest accessories of the year, the gift was more than just an off-the-shelf luxury handbag— it had actually been customised by 16-month-old North herself. The bag featured a stand-out orange handprint and a colourful explosion of paint. Kim was also given a video showing her little artist in action.
If you’re thinking of personalising a present, this is how you do it!
Jennifer Hudson to Assistant: The Best Gift From A Boss Ever!
What does your boss get you for Christmas? A box of chocolates? A cocktail at the Christmas party? Whatever it is, it’s sure to be overshadowed by Jennifer Hudson, who is officially the world’s best employer!
One Christmas, J-Hud fully embraced the season of goodwill by buying her assistant, Walter Williams, a house! You can check out the video of the surprise unfolding over on her Instagram page — it’s a real heart warmer!
Mariah Carey to Family Members: Sparkling Stockings!
Socks are a notoriously unimpressive gift — but not if they’re from Mariah Carey! A few Christmases ago, Mariah splashed out on diamond-encrusted stockings worth £15,000 a pair for her female friends and family members.
The stockings were reportedly a replica from Mariah’s own hosiery range, but she’d switched the diamantes for real diamonds for an extra special touch.
To Lionel, from Lionel: Seven Mercedes
Of course, it’s okay to treat yourself to a few little goodies as a reward for your generosity during a shopping trip. How about your favourite sweet treat or a new lippy for the Christmas party? Or, if you’re Lionel Richie, why not splash out on seven Mercedes cars?
Yes, back in 2012, Lionel treated himself to not one but seven of the luxury vehicles, reportedly one for every day of the week. Even the car salesman couldn’t believe it — he had to check Lionel was serious and not an imposter!
Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes to Suri Cruise: Her First Pad
Christmas is an exciting time for little ones, especially if your Mum and Dad are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. In 2012, when Suri was just six, her movie star parents reportedly splashed out £15,000 on a Victorian-style playhouse.
Unlike some other playhouses, this one is a total mini-me mansion. It has running water and electricity, and comes with a host of added extras including a fully working intercom system. But how will she get to her new playhouse? In her £6,000 mini Mercedes-Benz car of course!
