Rich people are always trying to out-do each other with lavish, unique or impossibly awkward gifts. For lavish, think Tom Cruise gifting a custom jet to Katie Holmes as a wedding gift. Unique? Roman Abramovich bought land on the moon for his girlfriend. Awkward? Charles Taylor gave Naomi Campbell a ginormous blood diamond.
Gifts are supposed to be emblems of love, goodwill or friendship. But I get the feeling that a lot of these celebrity gifts were, in fact, ways to simply inflate the ego of the giver rather than the receiver. Still, as long as you don’t have to feed it, right?
What gift would you like to receive from which celebrity? Me: A flannel shirt from George Lucas.
