A private island and a diamond ring: 8 ridiculous gifts celebrities have given their kids.

There is something about celebrities giving gifts that piques our interest. Mostly because it involves lots of luxury, wealth, and some absolutely ridiculous "investments". 

But it's even more fascinating when you hear what some celebrity kids have been given for Christmas, their birthdays, or just because their parents are super rich with cash to splash. 

From the likes of Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, Victoria Beckham, and Tyrese Gibson, let's unpack the wild and over-the-top gifts these celebs have given their little ones.

Why not try out some celebrity memorabilia worth big bucks. 

In 2019, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West purchased a velvet and rhinestone jacket from Michael Jackson's collection for their oldest daughter North, eight, at an auction. 

Apparently, she's a huge Michael Jackson fan, and they even had the sleeves tacked up so she would be able to wear it in the future. Now that's some forward-thinking.

Ruminating over the price? According to E! Online, the couple purchased the jacket for a whopping US$65,625 at a Julien's Auctions' Icons And Idols: Rock N' Roll event. 

Jackson wore the item in 1997 to his pal Elizabeth Taylor's 65th birthday celebration and also to the screening of his movie Ghost at the 50th Cannes Film Festival.

However, the Kardashian mogul has said in the past she hopes not to spoil her four kids too much.

"I worry about giving my kids too much. We don't do gifts. They have to really earn it. But we talk about it all the time, about not getting too much and just trying to be as grounded and well-rounded as possible," Kardashian wrote in a piece for Wealthsimple Magazine.

After being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, Kardashian admits she has become less materialistic than she once was.

"I don't like presents anymore. I just don't want that stuff right now. I don't buy a lot. I used to buy myself something every birthday and just be like, 'Okay, if I work hard all year then I can treat myself to something.' I used to really care. I loved cars. I still like them and I have a certain look, but I don't care like I used to," she told E! Online.

A member of hip hop royalty, rapper Lil Wayne, spent approximately US$500,000 on his daughter Reginae's 16th birthday, which featured on My Super Sweet Sixteen.

The party had some star-studded performances and five outfit changes for the birthday girl. 

But what was the major highlight? Two luxury cars courtesy of mum and dad. Not only did Reginae receive a bright red BMW 4WD, but she was also gifted a white Ferrari.

Hilariously, at the time, the 16-year-old couldn't even drive.

"I'm daddy's little girl, and he showers me with anything I want," Reginae said on the show. "I'm gonna shut Atlanta down. What 16-year-old has a Ferrari?"

David and Victoria Beckham are well known for their family of four, including eldest son Brooklyn, second-eldest Romeo, middle child Cruz, and daughter Harper.

And you know what, if the Beckham's are your parents, you're pretty much guaranteed a bit of luxury.

Harper is 10 now, but for her first birthday, her famous parents bestowed her with a commissioned painting.

Yep, this one-year-old got a fancy-a** painting. How much is it worth? Reportedly £600,000...

Harper received a seven-foot Damien Hirst painting called "Daddy's Girl." The London contemporary artist created the piece, which is heart-shaped and features lots of butterfly designs. 

Interestingly, this painting isn't the only costly piece in the Beckham home. As reported by The Mirror UK, the family have amassed a major collection believed to be valued at over £30million. The collection is also based around love, and look, nothing says a bit of love and appreciation like a giant heart.

But according to the Beckham parents, the kids need to earn their perks. 

"Without a doubt, they have to earn it," David shared on the BBC show Newsround"They have their chores. They have to put their plates in the dishwasher or make their bed in the morning, and if they don't do it they don't get their pocket money."

If making my bed in the morning would get me a £600,000 painting, I would do my chores too.

A diamond ring, of course!

In true Kardashian-esque style, Kylie Jenner showed off her and Stormi's matching diamond rings on Instagram, captioning the post, "Daddy got us matching rings." 

According to Marie Claire, Bill Kung, the owner of Ultimate Diamond in New York City, estimated Jenner's ring at a hefty US$350,000 and Stormi's at US$35,000.

It's a lifestyle Jenner says she is conscious of over-promoting, especially given her sister Kim's experience of getting robbed. 

She told Harper's Bazaar: "I think about it a lot because the world is just so crazy now. I'm just trying my best, even though she's still little, to remind her how blessed we are and that this isn't normal, the way we live. It's just our life."

Screw the jewellery and Michael Jackson memorabilia... bring on the private island!

Tyrese Gibson, an American singer and actor, gave his daughter Shayla this very expensive gift when she was eight years old.

Gibson spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the private island in 2015, while he was promoting a Fast and Furious film.

When asked by the journalist what the most lavish gift he had given someone was, Gibson immediately knew what he was going to say. Because nothing freaking beats a private island. 

"Can’t say where," he said. "She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I’ll be putting it up on my Facebook soon."

Even though private islands can range in price drastically, between US$100,000 to US$16 million according to Private Islands Inc, it was still a very expensive Christmas gift.

Cardi B responded to the criticism on her Instagram Stories, writing: "When celebrities buy their kids designer s**t, people be like, 'Kids don't care about that. They only care about toys and candy.' Yes, they just care about toys and candy but the thing is kids go outside, kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places, some celebrity kids do red carpets, and if I'm fly and daddy's fly, then so is the kid!"

In a tweet, Cardi B also said: "Listen imma live my childhood dreams thru my kids. My baby is overly spoiled with toys."

Now, it's pretty common for many kids to be given a couple of Barbie dolls during their childhood. But a diamond-encrusted one? Not so popular. 

According to The Sun, Blue Ivy was gifted a custom-made US$80,000 Barbie doll, adorned with a diamond broach, sash and earrings. 

"Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess," a source told The Sun. "They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl."

In 2018, the then six-year-old tried to outbid actor and director Tyler Perry for an expensive piece of art in Los Angeles. She surprised the crowd when she bid a whopping $19,000 for the piece of art, but she lost to Tyler Perry who just added $1,000 and snapped up the piece of art.  

Good luck to Beyoncé and Jay-Z for their daughter's 21st birthday, because that'll be a gift with a hefty price tag.
