Let’s face it – come Valentine’s Day, the majority of us will be stoked to get a bottle of champers, a bouquet of roses, and a beautifully gift-wrapped box of your most favourite chocolates from Thornton’s. However, do you ever wonder how the minority of super-famous and super rich celebrate their love for the significant (and lucky) other in their lives? Check out some of the fabulous Valentine’s gifts that the luckiest people in the world received – we can always find solace in remembering that Valentine’s Day is built up commercial hype.
1.A Platinum Covered 24k Mobile Phone
That’s right – a few years ago, Jay-Z actually bought Beyoncé this unbelievable Valentine’s Day gift. Our IPhones will never look the same again.
2.A Make-Shift Vineyard – So you feel lucky when your partner brings back a bottle of pricey wine? Following a visit to a wine country, Rebecca Romijn’s hubby, Jerry O’Connell only went and planted £52,000 worth of grape vines (equalling approximately 800 vines) around their Los Angeles home.
On Valentine’s Day, 2011, Katie Perry bought her then-husband Russell Brand, a lilac Bentley Brooklands.
4.A £250,000 Engagement Ring – For Valentine’s Day, 2007, Howard Stern gave Beth Ostrosky a 5.2-carat emerald-cut engagement ring that cost £250,000!
5.A $40,000 Hotel Suite Getaway – George, George,, George – if we had you there would be no need for anything else. However, Sarah Larson was once treated to a lavishly romantic hotel suite getaway that cost an eye-watering $40,000!
6.A Panthere De Cartier Cuff Worth $73,000 – In 2013 (just like every other year) Kim Kardashian was one lucky lady, due to the fact Yeezy professed his love with a Panthere De Cartier cuff embellished in diamonds, emeralds, and white gold. (Sigh).
7.A Bulgari Necklace – When it comes to romance, David Beckham truly understands a woman’s psyche. In 2006, he spent an unbelievable $8 million on a Bulgari necklace for his wife Victoria. How can anyone top that?
