It’s no secret that when it comes to Hollywood A-listers and their spending, no expense is spared. But when it comes to buying gifts for their loved ones, the extravagance can border on ridiculous. So just when you were feeling all warm and fuzzy from being spoiled this Valentine’s Day, wait till you see some of the outrageous gifts celebrities have been buying their Valentine’s over the years.

From custom cars to expensive jewellery – they’re the kinds of gifts us mere mortals could only dream about. But before you start turning green with envy, take a good look at the list of couples – half of these celebs aren’t even together anymore. It just proves that even mountains of spare money can’t buy you love. It can, however, buy exorbitantly expensive, over the top Valentine’s gifts.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Back in 2011 when Katy Perry and Russell Brand were still married, Katy splashed out on a lilac coloured Bentley Brooklands for her then-husband on Valentine’s.

The base price of one of these cars being over $300k, you could only imagine what Russell’s custom version might have gone for.

Courtney Cox and David Arquette

 

When Courtney Cox was still smitten with now ex-husband David Arquette, she bought him an antique carousel horse, estimated to be worth up to $45,000!

Wonder where he would have kept it in the house?

Perhaps not the most romantic gift (it’s the thought that counts though, right?), Jay-Z bought once bought Beyoncé a platinum mobile phone for Valentine’s Day worth around $24,000.

You wouldn’t want to accidently drop that in the pool!

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Famous for his ostentatiousness, Kanye West forked out a massive $73,000 in 2013 on a Panthere de Cartier, diamond and emerald covered, white gold cuff for Kim Kardashian. Just one of the many outrageously expensive gifts for his beloved wife.

 

Mike Tyson and Robin Givens

Ex-heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, known for his extravagant gift giving, once purchased a $2 million bathtub for ex-wife Robin Givens.

Luxury bath or not, this lavish Valentine’s gift sadly wasn’t enough to keep this couple together.

 

David and Victoria Beckham

Perhaps one of the most over the top celeb Valentine’s Day gifts of all, in 2006 David Beckham bought ex-Spice Girls wife, Victoria, an $8 MILLION dollar Bulgari necklace.

Yep! Eight million dollars for one necklace.

Hard to imagine how he topped that the following year!

  • So ridiculous! We are super low maintenance so probably just get each other a block of chocolate each

  • Wow money money money is all I can say! I guess they have it so they spend it.

  • Imagine how good they would have felt if they’d shared the love and spent that money on people less fortunate than themselves.

  • If they give gifts like that for Valentines I wonder what the give for anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmas,…or even Easter.

  • Wow!!

  • I guess if you spend a lot anyway, this doesn’t look like so much in comparison.

  • I wonder if this is why Kanye West is in so much debt? LOL
    I got a chocolate hamper of my favorite chocolate covered berries, which was a lovely gesture if it wasn’t for the fact I’m on a diet but at least hubby thought of me.

  • Wow all of these cost more than our car and some more than our home. This valentines I got a peck on the cheek and a cup of coffee about mid-afternoon. Not bad after 18 years of marriage, and counting. Many more coffees to come!
