If You Thought The Christmas Presents You Got Were Bad, Wait Till You See This List Of Over The Top Celebrity Xmas Gifts

Merry Christmas! Did you wake up hungover from all the drinks your cousins forced you to have, feeling like the sugarplums who were so joyously dancing in your head last night turned up so hard that your brain feels like an empty shell? Today is the day of spending time with your loved ones, opening presents, maybe receiving a sweet new phone, perhaps some sweaters you won’t wear, or if you’re lucky, you got something you actually wanted, like a mini Louis Vuitton bag, or a private jet; if you were Rihanna, then you would’ve received an original piece of Jeff Koons art. But alas, we’re mere mortals. So here you have a list of crazy, outrageous, over-the-top Christmas presents celebs have given or received throughout the years. Just to keep you humble. 

Louis Vuitton Bag galore

Instagram @kimkardashian

Kim Kardashian gifted all of the “baby girls” in the Kardashian/Jenner fam mini LV bags for Christmas! She showed off the merch on her Instagram story, and then Kylie treated us to the moment when Stormi actually received her present. It’s unclear who else received the generous gift, but we can assume Dream, True, and Chicago will all be wearing their matching purses together.

Lady Gaga’s pony

Lady Gaga lived out every little girl’s dream by actually receiving a pony for Christmas. Her record label, Interscope Records, gifted their star this beautiful creature in 2015.

Kanye West’s bizarre art-piece

In 2013, Kim Kardashian West received this very artsy Birkin, hand-painted by George Condo, from Kanye West. The bag along —sans art— cost $16,000.

Kim Kardashian got her hubby and baby, matching presents

Like father like daughter

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian West won major mom and wifey points with her matching black Lamborghinis for Kanye West and daughter North. Oh, and this was for Northie’s first Christmas, by the way.

Beyoncé’s definitely not one of Jay-Z’s 99 problems

Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z may have 99 problems, but his Bugatti ain’t one! In 2010 Queen Bey gifted her man the world’s fastest car worth a cool $2 million big ones for his December birthday (let’s hope it qualified for his Christmas present too). But spending this amount of dough is nothing for the superstar couple; Jay-Z rang in the holiday cheer by buying her $350,000 worth of Birkin bags from Hermes.

Mariah Carey’s Mommy-mobile

And speaking of cars, Nick Cannon showed his holiday love for now former wife Mariah Carey with a $400,000 Phantom Rolls-Royce, complete with personalized “mommyMC” license plate back in the day.

Mike Tyson’s GOLD bath-tub, yeah, you read that right.

danspapers.com Jordan Rivers

Nothing says love like a bathtub made of gold. The fighter splashed out $2.2 million on a 24 karat gold bathtub for his ex-wife Robin Givens. After the marriage broke down, however, so did the value of the iconic bathtub and the extravagant gift was put to auction in 2013. Derwood Hodgegrass bought the bath for a cool $1.2 million, almost half the price of what Tyson originally paid. 

Justin Bieber’s modest ‘treat-yourself’ moment

New jet for Christmas, and she's beautiful

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

In 2014, the pop singer was all about the gift of giving, by buying himself a private jet. Showing off his new toy, the “Baby” singer posted a selfie inside his new plane with the caption: “New jet for Christmas, and she’s beautiful”.

Rihanna’s expensive af art-piece

Riri once found an original Jeff Koons sculpture under the tree. The sculpture was a gift from the creative director of Fenty Corp. How much could this collection of random pool toys on a stool be worth, you ask? A similar piece sold for $5M and Koons’ famed enormous balloon animals were auctioned off for upwards of $50M a piece.

J.Lo’s throne

Vanity Fair #hustlersmovie

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

Affleck bought his former wife a jewel-encursted toilet seat. It’s only natural that the pop-star’s former beau only wanted the very best for his girl’s derriere. Reportedly he told a friend, “Jennifer is my princess and she deserves only the best—even when it comes to toilets.” The toilet seat, which Affleck supposedly designed himself, featuring, rubies, sapphires and a diamond, cost a whopping $105,000. How’s that for a throne?

We Found The Perfect Gifts For Your Selena-Obsessed Friends And Created A Gift Guide

mitú shop

Congratulations! If you’re reading this, it means you keep very good company. Whether you know all about Selena or just need a little guidance from a trusted source, we’ve got all the necessary items to be a Selena fan club member in good standing. Before Selena’s untimely death, she paved the way for women to take the stage in Tejano music. During a time when Cosmopolitan was telling women with curves how to properly hide those curves, Selena, somehow, remained mentally unscathed and showed us all how to properly show off our Latina curves, and keep eating pizza. While nothing can bring her contagious smile and unforgettable voice back, we can be reminded of her empowered, easy-going spirit when we notice a pin on our backpack or pick up our keys and see an Apartamento 512 keychain. 

If you don’t understand what feeding your friend’s obsession is all about, trust that it’s pure female empowerment.

Apt. 512 Keychain

Be warned, if there is anything less than platonic about your ‘friendship’ with this Selena-obsessed person, this keychain may be taken as a hint that you want something more. Otherwise, compas, your friend will scream to carry this around on her keychain. If you know, you know.

Chico in Apt 512 Tee

Oh, so you know what you’re doing and trying to make that Selena-obsessed friend your Selena-obsessed novio or novia? The key is to wear this Chico in Apt 512 Tee under a hoodie, and as your “friend” is opening the keychain gift, unzip that hoodie and reveal yourself. You’re the dreamy guy next door.

Selena Pin Pack

Pins are one of the most popular gifts because there are no sizes and one little pin can tell you a lot about a person. These three exclusive pin designs include Selena’s iconic red Porsche, “El Busti-Caca”, and “I Could Fall In Love With You” Pizza. If you don’t get it, trust that they will.

The Life of Selena Lil Libros Book

As we all trailblaze into a new decade, and a new year, some self-empowerment may be on your friend’s mind. If that sounds like your friend, then what better way to empower that self-reflection than from the mind’s eye of the Selena? Buying someone a journal almost always feels passive-aggressive, but only tears of laughter can be produced by this gift.

Bidi Bidi Guau Guau Dog Bandana

If your friend is obsessed with Selena, she’s probably also obsessed with her dog. This makes the perfect two-for-one package present to show your friend you care about her dog’s solid fashion sense, and that they properly rep family values. Plus, it’s on sale right now!

Selena Plush & Bib Bundle

If your friend has become a new mom, this handmade gift, and it’s backstory, will have her weeping with joy. When Erika first got pregnant, she started making baby shoes for her soon-to-be newborn. By the time she gave birth to her third child, this hobby became a full-out passion project and company, now called Luna Impressions. Your new mama will appreciate that this gift is 100 percent handmade by a Latina mom who became a businesswoman while her children were still in diapers.

Bidi Bidi Baby Onesie

If a Bidi Bidi baby doesn’t tell you they’re a Bidi Bidi baby, are they even a Bidi Bidi baby? Complete the gift set with the most adorable baby onesie there ever lived, available in baby pink, white, and black as well.

Bidi Bidi Busti Youth Tee

When her baby is a full-grown child, we’ve still got the merch she’ll need. Growing up in a Selena-obsessed household is contagious. Before Selena, Tejanas were rare or ignored in Tejano music. After a childhood of rewatching the stunning Selena belt “Como La Flor” from Houston’s Astrodome, she’s going to want to do the very same. Make that kid’s dreams come true.

Bidi Bidi Guac Guac Plushie

The ultimate mitú x Selena gift is perfect for the friend who may also have an obsession with Guarcado or avocados in general. Guarcado is donning Selena’s iconic sparkling purple jumpsuit and even has a convenient keychain attachment, so your friend can hold onto it forever!
