Most expensive celebrity Christmas gifts. Spoiler: It came to a total of $30,236,537

What do the richest celebrities give as Christmas presents?

Christmas is a season of giving and our celebrities have no objection in giving extremely expensive and lavish gifts to their friends and family. Here are some of the most outrageous and generous gifts celebrities have given:

David Beckham's gift to Victoria

David Beckham, being an iconic football superstar, has an almost unlimited amount of money to spend. So Beckham gave his wife Victoria a Bulgari necklace that cost $8 million. David also gave Victoria two expensive silk pyjamas that cost $537. Even though this seems like a ridiculously expensive giving season, keep in mind that Beckham’s net wealth is estimated to be $350 million.


The world’s fastest moving gift

In 2010, Beyonce and Jay Z were the highest earning couple in entertainment. Beyonce then surprised her husband with the fastest production car in the world - a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. The car is valued at £1.3 million or AUD $2 million. The Veyron reaches 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 410 km/h.

Jay Z received this gift for his 41st birthday. Now he can add the Grand Sport to his collection of supercars which includes but isn't limited to a Rolls Royce Phantom and a Pagani Zonda Roadster.

What goes around come around, at least for this couple. Jay Z returned the generosity of Beyonce by purchasing an island off the coast of Florida for $20 million. This was his gift for Beyonce’s 29th birthday.


Katy Perry’s gift to former husband Russell Brand

One of the most out there gift of all time would be a trip to space, surely. Katy Perry gave her then husband Russell Brand a ticket for the maiden voyage of the Virgin Galactic spacecraft. The round trip cost $200,000 where the Virgin Galactic will travel 356,000 feet into the atmosphere. This gift is certainly out of this world.


Friends stay friends

Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox had a palpable friendship on the sitcom Friends. Apparently they have continued to be best friends off set as well. The two share gifts every year and in 2008 Cox gave Aniston a pushbike worth $12,000.

The bike was designed by Chanel and is equipped with an eight speed cruiser and a quilted leather Chanel seat and saddlebag. The bike weighs a total of 36lbs.


Victorian Playhouse

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have pulled out all the stops when it comes to pleasing their daughter Suri Cruise. Cruise and Holmes installed a Victorian playhouse in the garden of their family home. The playhouse is estimated to be worth $24,000.

The playhouse also came with fully functional plumbing and electricity.


Perhaps you won’t be able to afford the likes of these gifts for your loved ones, but it’s the thought that really counts.
