VO: Rebecca Brayton
Script written by Nick Spake According to these celebrities, the best way to show your love is through the most ridiculous and (sometimes) expensive gifts out there.

Not to mention a gold wisdom tooth that one celebrity gave to Ryan Reynolds, or a certain pop singer giving the gift of a trip to freakin’ SPACE! All the celebrities from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are on this ridiculous list!

Top 10 Ridiculous Celebrity Gifts

They say it’s the thought that counts. We’re not sure what some of these celebs were thinking, though. Welcome to and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Ridiculous Celebrity Gifts.

For this list, we’re taking a look at flashy, expensive, and just plain bizarre gifts that celebrities either bought or received. We’ve excluded Christmas gifts because they already have a list of their own.

#10: Blood Vial Necklaces

Angelina Jolie & Billy Bob Thornton
Long before Brangelina was a thing, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton were among Hollywood’s most prominent power couples. Their unlikely union raised plenty of eyebrows and this gift didn’t exactly lower those eyebrows. Both celebs were busy making movies in the early 2000s. Since they couldn’t spend a lot of time together, Jolie picked up a pair of lockets to commemorate their love. Instead of putting pictures inside, though, the couple cut their fingers with a razorblade and smeared their blood on the necklaces. The two exchanged these blood lockets and wore them around each other’s necks. We’ve heard the phrase, “love is thicker than blood,” but Angie and Billy might’ve taken this saying too literally.

#9: Alexander McQueen Armadillo Boots

Taylor Kinney
It’s no secret that Lady Gaga has an outlandish fashion sense. In 2015, the singer’s then-fiancé, model/actor Taylor Kinney, made a generous donation to her over-the-top wardrobe. At an auction, Kinney bought three pairs of Alexander McQueen Armadillo boots, which were handcrafted in Italy from python skin and wood. These shoes had an estimated worth of $10,000 to $15,000 each. Kinney, however, coughed up a whopping $295,000 for all 3. Regardless, Gaga went gaga over her new boots, showing them off on Instagram. Plus, the proceeds went towards UNICEF’s relief efforts in Nepal where multiple destructive earthquakes had occurred earlier that year. So it was really a win-win situation for everyone.

#8: Maseratis

Adam Sandler
Say what you will about some of Adam Sandler’s movies, but anybody who’s worked with the funnyman will tell you that he’s one of the nicest guys in the business. If this gift proves anything, it’s that you couldn’t ask for a better friend. In 2010’s “Grown Ups,” Sandler starred alongside fellow comedians Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. Critics might’ve panned the film, although that didn’t stop it from grossing over $270 million. Sandler decided to spread the wealth, buying Maseratis for his four co-stars. Each luxury vehicle cost $200,000, amounting to $800,000 overall. Talk about a real life Mr. Deeds.

#7: Condoms

Amy Schumer
Amy Schumer has never been one to shy away from unrefined humor, even when it comes to the President of the United States. In 2015, GQ Magazine brought several celebrities together to honor President Barack Obama. Tracy Morgan bought him a classy watch while Julia Louis-Dreyfus offered an elegant oil painting. Schumer, meanwhile, presented the president with a sleeve of condoms. Some people might find this gift to be in poor taste. Coming from Schumer, though, it’s actually the highest compliment possible. After all, she did get him Magnum condoms. If anything, GQ’s Man of the Year should be flattered.

#6: Two Horses

Jamie Foxx
In “The Soloist,” Robert Downey Jr. stars as a journalist who strikes up a friendship with a homeless musician, played by Jamie Foxx. It’s safe to say that these two acting giants have a strong bromance off-screen as well. Downey faced the ultimate first world problem when he purchased a house with two stables, but no horses. To make sure those stables didn’t go unattended, Foxx got Downey two horses for his 45th birthday. Downey would return the favor on Foxx’s 43rd birthday, gifting him a 1967 vintage El Camino. Considering that Tony Stark sported an El Camino in “Iron Man” and the titular character in “Django Unchained” rode a horse, this was a truly fitting gift exchange.

#5: A Bag of Vomit

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga appears once again on our list, although this time she’s giving rather than receiving. Gaga is known for her unpredictable personality. Likewise, “American Horror Story” can be a totally unpredictable anthology series. When the singer turned actress checked in for the show’s fifth season, it seemed like a match made in heaven. On her first day of shooting, Gaga was feeling ill and threw up in a Ziploc bag. Not wanting to see perfectly good vomit to go to waste, Gaga gave the bag to the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy. This gift might have been strange, disgusting, and disturbing. Then again, the same can be said about “American Horror Story.” So perhaps Gaga was just getting into character.

#4: Staples Center Date

Justin Bieber
Whether you love or hate Justin Bieber, there’s no denying that being his significant other would have its perks. At the age of 17, the pop star took his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, to a Demi Lovato concert. Following the performance, Bieber treated Gomez to dinner and a movie. That might not sound very extravagant, but the Biebs went all out by renting the entire Staples Center. Surrounded by 20,000 empty seats, the couple ate an intimate meal of steak and pasta while “Titanic” played on the screen. Bieber got to use the arena for free, although the date reportedly would’ve cost him $475,000.

#3: Gold-Encrusted Wisdom Tooth

Scarlett Johansson
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton might’ve freaked people out with their blood lockets, but this piece of jewelry is another level of weird. While dating actor Ryan Reynolds in 2007, Scarlett Johansson had her wisdom teeth removed. The blonde bombshell decided to cover one tooth in gold and strung it onto a necklace. Johansson gave the necklace to Reynolds for his 31st birthday. Apparently she literally wanted him to have a piece of her. The couple would wed the following year, although they divorced in 2011. We wonder who got the gold encrusted tooth after the breakup?

#2: Ten Burger Kings

Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had one of the most excessive and expensive celebrity weddings to date. So it’s only appropriate that Kayne got Kim one of the most lavish wedding gifts of all time. In 2014, the rapper reportedly purchased ten branches of Burger King for his bride to be. These restaurants were located all over the world, ranging from France, to Italy, to the United Kingdom. Kayne felt this gift would help Kim to grow as a businesswoman and expand her career beyond television. Kardashian is already the Selfie Queen, the Social Media Queen, and the Reality TV Queen. Now she can add Burger Queen to her résumé.

Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

$5,200 Swarovski Crystal-Studded Bathtub
Kelly Rowland to Beyoncé

$12,000 Chanel Bicycle
Courteney Cox to Jennifer Aniston

Giant Potted Penis Plant
Chelsea Handler to Miley Cyrus

#1: A Trip to Space

Katy Perry
We’ve seen some pretty ridiculous gifts on this list, but Katy Perry went to infinity and beyond for Russell Brand’s birthday present. During her engagement to Brand in 2010, the singer purchased a $200,000 ticket to outer space. That’s right, OUTER SPACE! Made possible through the spaceflight company, Virgin Galactic, this trip would involve traveling over 365,000 feet into the Earth's atmosphere at a rate three times faster than the speed of sound. After blastoff, Brand would get to see the world around 800 miles in any direction. This sounds like the kind of wacky misadventure Aldous Snow would get mixed up in. Apparently fiction doesn’t stray too far away from reality sometimes, especially when your fiancée is Katy Perry.
