Do you have a significant other on your holiday shopping list this year? I do — and I have no idea what I’m going to get him. If you’re in the same gift-challenged situation and need some ideas, let’s take a peek at what kinds of presents the hottest A-list couples have given each other. While some of the prices are out of this world, they just may spark an idea or two.
Let’s begin with what is perhaps the most famous couple of all: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Angelina once gave Brad a heartfelt and costly 200-year-old olive tree for $18,500. The tree symbolized peace — a prominent sentiment in the charitable duo’s world — and was planted on their estate in the South of France.
Instead of exchanging birthday gifts one year, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith donated to Charity: Water, a nonprofit organization that brings clean water to developing communities worldwide. Other celebs have created their own gifts: Nick Lachey wrote Vanessa Minnillo a song, and Heidi Klum gave Seal a box of handmade crafts for Valentine’s Day.
Going the cute and fuzzy route, Victoria Beckham gave her husband, David Beckham, a pet bulldog for Christmas last year. The pooch was said to symbolize David’s strong presence on the soccer field.
So, what theme do these celebrity gifts share? Each woman put thought into the gift and made it special for her man. That just goes to show you: Whatever your budget, it really is the thought that counts!
