Celebrities, they’re just like us, right?
When it comes to being a celebrity, everything in life is glitz and glam. Not only do you get to do whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you want, but when it comes to birthdays and celebrations, all bets are usually off. Celebrities are usually prone to not only be friends with other celebrities, but they date and marry celebs, too. That means, twice as much cash to spend on gifts twice as big.
Think about the last time you had to buy someone special a gift, and how long it took you to think of the perfect item for them. You want it to be special and memorable, but we’re always confined to the price tag. When you’re a celebrity, it’s a little easier. When your bank account has more digits than a telephone number, nothing is off limits. Especially when you’re giving a gift to a fellow celeb, you want to make it so big that it’s something they wouldn’t usually get for themselves.

Adam Sandler has been a funny man in movies for as long as I’ve basically been alive.

After wrapping the movie Grown-Ups with actors Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Chris Rock, Sandler gifted them all with high-end cars to thank them all. And, I’m not talking about just any Honda – Sandler gave them each $270,000 Maseratis. Hey Adam, got any female roles available in your next movie?

Kim Kardashian has been the biggest name across our TV screens and social media feeds for what seems to be like forever. Not a day goes by without the paparazzi snapping pictures of her and her husband Kanye West. When Kim celebrates, she usually does it big with club appearances and endless selfies. Kanye is no stranger to the lavish lifestyle Kim likes to live, because he’s not shopping at the mall for her gifts.

Not only is it a crazy idea, but it’s also the gift that keeps on giving. Fast food chains make millions of dollars a year, by Kim owning 10 Burger Kings, she’s able to take in even more revenue than she already is – and she’ll always have it her way when traveling.
