After we fantasize about the exotic destinations and fast cars we'll buy when we win the lottery, most of us wax unselfish and start making mental lists of special gifts we'd love to bestow upon our loved ones, presents picked not so much for value but for distinctiveness…which, alas, also carries a typically high price tag.
Celebrities with seemingly limitless funds are already livin' the dream and their inimitable gifts for family and friends run the gamut from practical to poignant, including a few so odd you don't even want to imagine the back-story.
10 David & Victoria Beckham – 2 $50,000 Audis
9 Katy Perry - $100,000 Trip to Space
8 Jamie Foxx – Horses for Robert Downey, Jr.
Jamie Foxx was thrilled for his friend Robert Downey Jr. when he bought a ranch for him and his family but when Downey showed him the empty stables, Foxx was saddened by the empty stalls.
7 Courtney Cox – A Bicycle for Friend Jennifer Aniston
6 Kanye for Kim – Ten Burger Kings
5 Kim for Kanye – Computer Mice Signed by Wozniak and Jobs
4 Angelina Jolie – A Waterfall for Brad
3 Scarlett Johannson for Ryan Reynolds – Her Gold Encrusted Wisdom Tooth
Ryan Reynolds probably had a few gifts in mind when he turned 31 back in 2007 but a gold coated tooth probably wasn't on the list. Sure, it came from the beautiful mouth of his then-future wife Scarlett Johannson but still very odd, regardless of the origin.
2 Adam Sandler – Luxury Cars for Movie Co-Stars
1 Jessica Simpson – Speed Boat for Tony Romo
Jessica Simpson took a lot of flack when she was dating Tony Romo. A number of Dallas Cowboys fans wanted her banned from the stands during the Cowboys games, claiming her presence was a bad omen that threw off Romo's prowess on the football field. When she gave him a $100 thousand speedboat for his 28th birthday, naysayers whispered she was trying to buy a wedding proposal.
That pass fell short of a touchdown and the two parted ways, but Jessica told him to keep the boat. Not only a devoted Cowboys fan but a good sport to boot.
