Angelina Jolie to Brad Pitt

When you’ve already given one of the most famous men in the world a $100,000 motorcycle, an $18,500 olive tree, and a family with six children, what else is left? A house atop a waterfall, of course! Angelina Jolie recently bought longtime beau Brad Pitt a waterfall in California as a gift for both Christmas and his 48th birthday. The couple plans to build a home above the waterfall modeled after Fallingwater, the 1939 Pennsylvania house designed by Pitt’s favorite architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. As a source said to The Daily Mail, “Brad has always wanted to design his own house. He wants to pull all aspects of nature, light, glass and varying levels into the concept." Pitt, who caused a bit of a stir in November when he said he was likely to quit acting in three years, is reportedly going to take time off to build the house.

Mike Tyson to Robin Givens

Though few celebrities are known for being frugal gift givers, champion boxer Mike Tyson’s extravagant tendencies helped land him $38 million in debt in 2003, a situation not helped by the $2 million bathtub he purchased for his first wife, actress Robin Givens.

Kelly Rowland to Beyoncé

When Kelly Rowland accidentally spilled the beans about the sex of Beyoncé’s baby, she probably figured she’d better do something big to make up for it, like buying her former Destiny’s Child mate a Swarovski crystal-encrusted baby bathtub. Weighing in at more than 3,000 pounds, the little pink tub is valued at $5,200 and is covered in 44,928 imported crystals that interior designer Lori Gardner spends more than two months applying by hand.

David Beckham to Victoria Beckham

L.A. Galaxy’s David Beckham is not one to keep from splurging on his wife, Victoria. After reportedly buying her an $8 million Bulgari necklace for Valentine’s Day in 2006, the soccer star bought an entire vineyard for Victoria in 2008. Beckham reportedly told his wife about her new Napa Valley winery by handing her a bottle of wine with her name on the label. The Sun reported that the couple planned to bottle their own line of wine for friends and family.

Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise has always had a peculiar way of expressing his love for his wife, Katie Holmes. There were the oft-publicized outbursts of affection, like the couch-hopping scene he made on Oprah. And then there was the purchase of a $20 million wedding present for Holmes. Cruise reportedly purchased a customized Gulfstream jet for his new wife in the hopes that she would pick up his love of flying. However, according to the U.K. Marie Claire, Holmes ended up using the plane only when Cruise’s own jet wasn’t available. “It’s like a bus, only faster,” she told the magazine.

Katy Perry to Russell Brand

Although Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s marriage has hit the rocks, the two stars’ relationship started on an out-of-this-world note. In July 2010, before the pair married, Perry bought her husband-to-be a ticket on the maiden voyage of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo for his 35th birthday. The jets, which are slated to start flying this year, will carry passengers more than 365,000 feet into the air, where they can look down on Earth and experience weightlessness for five minutes. Since the couple’s recent divorce announcement, however, it is unclear whether Brand will keep the $200,000 ticket.

Adam Sandler to His ‘Grown Ups’ Costars (Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Kevin James)

Apart from impaling feet and peeing in outdoor pools, grown-ups apparently also buy each other $200,000 Maseratis—at least, that seemed to be Adam Sandler’s philosophy regarding the 2010 comedy Grown Ups. Sandler, who also co-wrote and produced the film, was so grateful to his costars, Kevin James, David Spade, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider, that he bought each of them one of the luxury cars. “The movie’s like the biggest thing for [Sandler],” Rock said on the Howard Stern Show. “He appreciates the help.” Since the film grossed more than $162 million, it’s safe to say Sandler could afford to splurge on his castmates.

Birdman to Lil Wayne

Here’s an easy way to make a million bucks: become the wildly successful protégé of the head of Cash Money Records, Bryan “Baby” Williams, a.k.a. Birdman. For Lil Wayne's birthday, the exec gave the rapper a Louis Vuitton briefcase containing $1 million, reportedly leaving the hip-hop star speechless. The present was just as lavish as the rest of the cash-themed party, which reportedly included an ice sculpture filled with $100 bills.

Courteney Cox to Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston’s bicycling habits have sure come a long way since she was a 19-year-old, “extraordinarily klutzy” bike messenger. Her former Friends costar Courteney Cox reportedly gave Aniston a $12,000 Chanel bicycle in 2009 simply because Aniston “expressed an interest” in taking up cycling again. The bike features eight speeds, a quilted leather seat, and even a saddlebag emblazoned with the Chanel logo.

Oprah to Her Staff

If such a title existed, Boss of the Year 2009 definitely would have been Oprah Winfrey. The talk-show host showed gratitude to 100 members of her staff by buying them all-expenses-paid tickets to a Mediterranean cruise. Winfrey and her family joined the staff on the approximately $5,000-a-person cruise, which stopped in Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Malta. It was the second time in four years that Winfrey had given her staff cruise tickets—the first time around, Winfrey and her crew sailed to Hawaii.

Roman Abramovich to Dasha Zhukova

Most women don’t take it literally when their significant others say things like “I’ll give you the moon.” But Russian businessman (and No. 53 on Forbes’ list of billionaires) Roman Abramovich wasn’t joking when he probably said it to his longtime girlfriend Dasha Zhukova. In 2008, he actually bought 100 acres of land on the moon in her name through the Lunar Embassy, an agency specializing in selling plots of lunar land.

Paris Hilton to Herself

Celebrity generosity doesn’t stop at giving to others. As an early Christmas present in 2008, Paris Hilton bought herself a $200,000 pink Bentley. She said  she chose pink for her love of Barbies and the Disney store. “I’ve just always wanted a pink car,” she said. “I think when you're a little girl and you have the Barbie Corvette you're always like, 'Oh, I wish I had a car like this one day,' so I think it just comes from being a fan of Barbie for so long."
