What do you give someone who already has everything a multi-millionaire could want? These celebs already have their yachts, mansions, and more cars than they could drive. A $40,000 pen seems like the logical next step. From jewel-encrusted toilet seats to a handful of Burger King franchises, celebrities are getting inventive on special occasions and pulling out all the stops for their significant others. We're laughing at these ridiculous celebrity birthday gifts, but if you had millions of dollars to spare, you'd buy some crazy sh*t too.
Sofia Richie turned 21 in August 2019, and her longterm boyfriend Scott Disick made sure his lady would be cruising in style with a new Aston Martin DB11. Daily Mail estimates that the luxury car cost at least $250,000, complete with customized orange leather interiors. The Aston Martin wasn't the only new whip Sofia got for her milestone birthday. She was gifted a new Range Rover, with prices *starting* at $91,000, and an adorable birthday breakfast spread decorated with a bouquet of roses that probably cost more than your monthly rent.

The Shade Room on Instagram captured Offset's reaction to his 26th birthday gift from Cardi B, a $320,000 Rolls Royce that perfectly matches his collection of bussdown watches. According to the post, Cardi had said no gifts for Christmas and Valentine's Day in preparation for the ridiculous celebrity birthday gift she had planned for her mans. Offset returned the favor a year later for Cardi's 26th, presenting the "Bodak Yellow" singer with a $200,000 Lamborghini truck. Cardi never learned to drive growing up in New York City, but throwing in an extra hundred dollars for driving lessons sounds like no big deal for this power couple.
Luxury cars seem to be the go-to ridiculous celebrity birthday gifts for the rich and famous. Kylie Jenner already had nearly a dozen luxury vehicles when Travis Scott gave the cosmetics mogul a vintage white Rolls-Royce for her 21st. After the $1.4 million Ferrari La Ferrari Travis gave Kylie to celebrate the birth of their daughter, Stormi, and the customized Rolls-Royce Wraith she got for Christmas, Kylie should have enough cars to always match her whip to her lip kit. Travis famously filled Kylie's house in thousands of rose petals for her birthday in 2019, which Kylie showed off on Instagram. We wish she'd also filmed the clean-up.
England may technically be ruled by the Windsors, but Victoria and David Beckham are the true British royal family. Telegraph UK reported that the former LA Galaxy soccer player spent over a million dollars on Posh Spice's ridiculous celebrity birthday gifts in 2008. David bought Victoria a winery in Napa Valley with a specialist team to run the vineyard in their absence. The Beckhams only planned on bottling their A1 wines for themselves, family, and friends, which they kicked off with a tour of the location for friends Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Kate Beckinsale, and Seal, but a winery of this pedigree could earn the already-flush couple a pretty penny. This is how the rich get richer.
Katy Perry's 2010 ridiculous celebrity birthday gifts for Russell Brand might've outlived their marriage. Katy bought her comedian hubby a $200,000 ticket for Virgin Galatic's maiden voyage into space for his 35th birthday, but the project has yet to officially lift off with commercial passengers. Once the game-changing venture is actually operating, the New York Daily News explained Russell will take on two to three days of intense training before traveling 365,000 feet into the Earth's atmosphere, floating weightlessly for five minutes before returning to Earth, complete with a 17-inch-diameter window for a six-figure-worthy view of space.

Travis Scott might be the best millennial celebrity gift-giver in the game. A year after he presented Kylie with a vintage Rolls-Royce for her 21st, Travis gave his lady love a custom-made, diamond-encrusted chain pendant of the Kylie Cosmetics lip logo by Eliantte. An E! News expert estimates the bling cost anywhere from $375,000 to over half a million dollars with pink and white micropave diamond, an infinity link chain, and pear shape diamond dangles. Kylie showed off the stunning piece on Instagram, styling it with a hot pink feather dress.
Kanye West regularly gives his wifey Kim Kardashian the gift of more money — and we're not just talking gift cards. Although it technically was more of a wedding present than a birthday gift, we were shook by Ye's genius gift of ten Burger King branches for his new wife. Kim will be raking in dough from locations across the UK, Italy, and France, NME learned, matching Kanye's multiple Chicago Fatburger franchises. For a 2017 Christmas gift, Kanye took the phrase "stocking stuffers" a little serious by giving Kim a box of gift cards to Netflix and Amazon, Adidas socks, a Mickey Mouse toy, and Apple airpods: each item representing a company Kanye had bought Kim stock, including $100,000 worth of shares in Disney.
Kim Kardashian's ridiculous celebrity birthday gifts for Yeezy were a little less practical but no less stunning. Kim gave her husband the celebrity pick-up basketball game of his dreams, dropping $110,000 to rent out the Staples Center according to TMZ. The game included NBA superstars Russell Westbrook and John Wall, Justin Bieber, Tyga, and Pusha T with James Harden and 2 Chainz coaching, John Salley announcing, and John Legend singing the national anthem. Plus, Kim copped real NBA referees for the game and Laker girls to cheer on the team, with specially made videos from basketball greats like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and Shaquille O'Neal playing on the jumbotron. This is one sporting event we would've happily watched on ESPN.
Bow down, b*tches. Anyone thinking of giving a vehicular ridiculous celebrity birthday gift needs to take notes from Beyoncé, who ordered Jay-Z's 41st birthday gift a year in advance for one of the fastest cars in the world. Hova's new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport goes from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds with a max speed of 253 mph, but The Boom Box learned thrills like these cost a little under $2 million. The Bugatti is joining an impressive car collection including a Ferrari F430 Spider, Maybach 62S, Rolls Royce Phantom, a Bentley, and a Pagani Zonda Roadster. Dominic Toretto, eat your heart out.
Friends ended in 2004, but Courteney Cox is still there for her former co-star Jennifer Aniston. In 2008, Boston.com learned that Monica Courteney had bought Rachel Jennifer a $12,000 Chanel bicycle after learning Jen wanted to take up cycling. Eco-friendly and ahead of the indoor cycling fad? Rachel Green, the eternal trend setter. Jen's eight-speed bike came with a quilted leather seat and a saddlebag featuring the famous Chanel logo, proving that luxury rides can be environmentally concious.
2009 was a simpler time when any problems with the Dallas Cowboys could be blamed on Jessica Simpson. The then-girlfriend of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was deemed a "curse" by fans, who weren't super thrilled with the ridiculous celebrity birthday gift she gave Tony for his 28th birthday in 2009. Fans took the speedboat, estimated at $100,000 by NBC News, as a sign that the couple was in it for the long-haul. Little did we know, Tony's birthday gift to his GF only a month later would be a brutal dumping the day before she turned 29. Now *that's* a ridiculous gift.
We miss Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan together. The Step Up co-stars were celebrity couple goals until their 2018 split, but during happier days in 2016, Jenna got her husband a birthday gift befitting the prince he is. Channing shared a picture of his brand new horse on Instagram, a gorgeous caramel steed named Cajun which Tatum celebrated on a sunset ride through nature on a family camping trip. This is Channing's second horse, joining Smoke, a rescue horse Channing adopted in August 2015.
We're not sure we believe sources at Hollywood Life who claimed Robert Pattinson bought Kristen Stewart a $40,000 pen for her birthday in 2013. In what would be a truly ridiculous celebrity birthday gift, Batman supposedly gave Kristen an engraved limited-edition Bentley Crewe fountain pen for her pen collection. This two-tone, 18-carat white gold pen included her name and the message "From R," with a two-tone 18-carat yellow gold nib and a barrel meant to match the dashboard used in Bentley's earliest car.

At first, we thought Blue Ivy had been given a bath filled with Swarovski crystals à la Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" video, but the baby-sized Swarovski bathtub makes a little more sense. Former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland bought Beyoncé's baby girl a bathtub covered in crystals made by Lori Gardener of the Diamond Bathtub company to celebrate her birth, which The Washington Post estimated at a retail price of $5,200. Apparently, Lori suggests using the tub to chill beverages or wash pets once your baby grows too big for the tub, making this a gift for life.
Chris Pratt is a farm boy at heart. The Marvel star posted his 40th birthday present from new wife Katherine Schwarzenegger on Instagram, two adorable pigs named Tim and Faith after loved-up country legends Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Chris explained their names were inspired by the pigs' palpable and inspiring love, although good vibes leftover from his recent Hawaiian honeymoon could've contributed to their christening as well. Tim and Faith will live with the animal lover's other sheep, goats, and pigs at his Washington State ranch.
Before Scarlett Johansson was extolling the virtues of being a human tree, she was married to Ryan Reynolds, but that doesn't mean the Black Widow star was any less quirky. Seventeen's daily gossip roundup reported that Scarlett had one of her wisdom teeth dipped in gold and strung onto a necklace for Ryan in 2007, like a lame-o version of Angelina Jolie's vial of Billy Bob Thornton's blood. We hope Ryan and Blake Lively still have the outlandish pendant in a place of honor in their home, if only for the story.
This is probably the weirdest ridiculous celebrity birthday gift on the list. To be fair, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's entire '00s relationship was a little over the top, from Gigli to their canceled wedding. J Lo's $105,000 toilet seat is just the icing on the cake. Pop Dirt heard rumors that Ben purchased his then-fiancé a jewel-encrusted toilet seat adorned with sapphires, rubies, pearls, and a diamond designed by Ben himself. Don't worry — the stones are set inside of the seat, not on top, so it's 100% usable.
What do you give a woman that gifted you a Bugatti Veyron? An island, of course! Hello! cited an episode of VH1's The Fabulous Life of... listing all of the gifts Jay has given Bey over the years, including a birthday trip around Europe on a $350,000 triple-decker yacht with $30,000 worth of champagne, a $1 million 1959 Rolls Royce, and a $4 million private island in the Bahamas for family time. Yoncé returned the favor with a $40 million plane for Father's Day, leading us to wonder what this American Royal Family will do once they start running out of ideas.

RIP Brangelina. In 2012, Angelina Jolie got her then-husband a joint birthday and Christmas gift in the form of a waterfall in California. US Weekly heard the plan was for Brad Pitt to build his dream house inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater on the site after the couple visited Frank's architectural marvel in 2006. Brad is a bit of an architecture nerd, so Angelina's thoughtful ridiculous celebrity birthday gift combined his passion with a big-ticket present rooted in both their past and their future. If this couple couldn't make it work, the rest of us are doomed.
We all saw Kristen Bell's sloth meltdown on The Ellen Show in a 2012 viral moment. Any birthday gift that makes someone have a complete emotional breakdown is a job well done, and Kristen's current husband (then-fiancé) Dax Shepard outdid himself for her 31st birthday when he arranged for Kristen to hang out with a sloth on her special day. Kristen, who's loved sloths since childhood, started crying before she even saw the animal. She realizes these dorky mammals would literally kill us all if they weren't nature's slowest animals, right?
