Gift Lifts of the Rich & Famous

In the weird and wonderful world of celebrities we have come to expect hearsay of strange diva like extravagance.

But what occurs when one, or indeed two of these extravagant lifestyles collide into wedding plans.

Normal wedding day excesses are to be superseeded with brilliant gowns, lavish venues and indulgent wedding gifts.

The wedding bells of the rich and famous will produce some almighty wacky gestures in the gift lists departments.

To celebrate their wedding, Angelina Jolie brought Brad a typewriter that once belonged to legendary US novelist Ernest Hemingway. At $250,000 this typewriter is an iconic piece of history used by Hemingway to write many of his infamous books, including “For Whom The Bell Tolls”.


George Clooney’s bride treated him to 12 handmade cocktail glasses from Venice, along with a 12-piece set of matching silk napkins and napkin holders. The $3,700 set matches the cocktail glasses used at the Hotel Cipriani, which George loves. We’re sure Delboy would approve.

Kanye got his blushing Kardashian bride something equally outrageous: A nude portrait of Kim. In the portrait, entitled ‘Perfect B*tch’ she is wearing only a g-string and Louboutin shoes. Charming!

James Righton treated new wife Keira Knightley to a 100 year old olive tree, engraved with the couples initials.

Anne Hathaway received a cow! Animal activists at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) were so over the moon that the actress chose a vegan menu for her big day, that they sponsored a calf – named Peter – in her honour.

Tom Cruise

Of course Tom Cruise wouldn’t let the side of extravagance down treating Katie Holmes to a £13 million pound Gulfstream jet, extreme luxury travel including a cinema inside.
