Holiday gifting can be such a tedious task when you have no idea what to give in between people you care about and those you merely need to politely gift. Although the actual price of a gift is secondary to the actual thought you put into a gift, sometimes a price tag can make the difference. After the craziness of Black Friday, and Paris Hilton splurging on a $300,000 deal for a brand new California Spyder Ferrari … here’s a list of celebrity gifts and recipients that might leave you shaking your head or make you feel grateful for those knitted Christmas sweaters you get each year.
Taylor Swift gets a $11,000 guitar from Jake Gyllenhaal for her birthday. But not just any ole guitar, it was a vintage Gretsch signed by Chet Atkins
Justin Bieber got a Range Rover as his congratulatory 16th birthday gift from Usher.
Britney Spears showed her love to Kevin when he turned 30 and bought him a diamond encrusted watch from Jacob & Co. packing a 71.36 ct diamond weight. All for a sweet price tag of $150,000.
Jennifer Aniston gets a very friendly one of a kind $ 12,000 Chanel bicycle from her pal Courtney as little perk me up to support her new passion for biking in LA.
David Beckham certainly wants to make sure the wifey is always looking posh, so he gifter her with a $1,500 fashion book entitled : Valentino Garavani : First name in Fashion. The fashion book is a rare publication and only has 2,000 copies out in the market.
Justin Timberlake gave both his lady loves Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel custom made Evolution surf boards with a year’s supply of Sex Wax…. For the surf boards, of course!
Angelina Jolie gave Brad another toy to add to his big toys, but this $100k custom made motorcycle gets special engraving on the plaque of the handlebars that says “ My sweetheart, the drunk”.
Matthew McConaughey gave his closest friends and family headlamps for Christmas because he thought they were awesome and thought it to be one of the greatest inventions to date.
George Clooney went movie crazy Christmas 2005 as he gave friends 100 dvds each of his fave movies.
Guy Ritchie shows how much he loves his material girl with a $21k ice pick to celebrate the release of her album. The dagger is jewel studded and designed by Jade Jagger. Although Madonna already has one, we’re guessing Guy Ritchie wanted to stress a point?
Tyra Banks let her love for her staff flow last Christmas 2007. She was on her way to Italy all donned and dressed like a million dollar model and made a brief stop at the modest Christmas party she threw for her staff at a dive bar with free drinks but no food. Tyra expressed her gratitude saying “I want to thank you guys for working so hard - I have a special guest – here’s Santa!” And in Santa’s bag were limp Mcdonald’s cheeseburgers. Is that when we all get to say Hoe Hoe Hoe?

I still cannot get over the idea that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz named their baby Bronx Mowgli but oh well, it’s their child, right? Anyhow, we have finally been treated to seeing baby Bronx at 1 month. You can also see his picture on his own web site.
Who did you spend Christmas Eve with? Jennifer Aniston spent a heartwarming night with some of her “bestest” friends Courtney Cox (and family of course) and hairstylist Chris McMillan. This year’s evening was actually a continuation of a 6-year tradition between the two good friends.
Britney does really seem to be cleaning up her act, doesn’t she? On her web site, she sent out a Christmas greeting to all her fans, together with her sons. It was a really sweet picture of them, too.
The news is that the star is not going to spend her Christmas with her boys. It was reported today that Madonna and ex Guy Ritchie met up so that the kids could go spend the holidays with their dad. The question is this: Who is Madonna spending Christmas with?
What do they want for Christmas? Yahoo asked several Hollywood celebrities and some had several “unique” answers (read: not world peace!):
EVA MENDES: “All I want for Christmas is for the war to end. And warm socks. Yeah, I never buy myself socks; it’s the weirdest thing in the world. But I need ‘em. I steal my boyfriend’s and it’s the cause of many fights.”
SAMUEL L. JACKSON: “All I wanted for Christmas was a brand new President named Barack Obama. And I feel like I am getting that. So I must have been a good girl!”
Girl? Ha ha…visit the article to read more.
If his daughter Suri is to be believed, then he is no good as Santa. Tom Cruise is perhaps one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood but he self-admittedly needs to put more effort in his annual role as Santa. May he be more successful this year!
One tends to forget the madness of Britney‘s year (shaved head and all) when one sees the pop star’s Christmas video message on Britney’s site. With a lovely Christmas tree in the background, son on hip (who promptly burps), she actually looks incredibly well and grounded (at last). Lets hope for the childrens’ sake it lasts.
