It’s the month of love and the four of us have been busy thinking about everything from Valentine’s Day inspired kids’ crafts (see here) to delicious yet nutritious snack alternatives (and here) instead of the usual chocolate, conversation hearts and more. Recently when we met up we were talking about the endearing presents we’ve received from from our sweethearts over the years and we started to wonder how the stars celebrate this holiday. Take a peek at fourteen of the most crazy, out of this world gifts that some of your favorite (or maybe not so favorite celebs) received or gave for the 14th of February. We think you’ll agree that Hollywood goes all out for V-Day!
Know of any other celebs who have given or received outrageous present for Valentine’s Day? Or have you been the lucky recipient of something out of the ordinary for this holiday?? Do tell!! Please reply to the comments section…we’d love to hear from you.
1. Brad and Angelina
Angelina Jolie gifted Brad Pitt a 200-year-old olive tree that was rumored to cost $18,500. The tree was planted in their chateau in France. Every man should definitely have an olive tree in the French countryside, right?!
2. Jay- Z and Beyonce
Jay-Z gave Beyonce a platinum cell phone costing $24,000 for one Valentine’s Day. That’s gotta be one heavy phone…geez.

Justin Bieber bought a ring for his former girlfriend Selena Gomez. The diamond ring appears to be the shape of a cursive “J”…J for Justin. Wow.
4. David Beckham and Victoria Beckham
Beckham once gave Posh Spice, his wife, an 8 million dollar Bulgari necklace for Valentine’s Day. Bling blinging!

7. Hug Hefner and his Playmates
Biggest Playboy ever, Hugh Hefner, once took his Valentines out for an Italian dinner before gifting them each with heart-shaped care packages, containing candy and lingerie. Hef once told People Magazine that his favorite thing – and the most natural thing to give on Valentine’s Day – is lingerie. What a dreamy guy!
8. Katy Perry and Russell Brand

9. Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell
