*Celebrities set the bar pretty high when it comes to gift giving. If you want to make your girl feel extra special, take notes from the way her favorite celebrities are treated by their men. Get ready to spoil her accordingly.
Skip the Bouquet & Send a Wall of Flowers
Take a lesson from Kanye West and skip that bouquet of blooms for something a little more memorable. The rapper has recently racked up quite the floral bill, having a literal wall of flowers delivered to Kim Kardashian this past Mother’s Day. Surprise your girl with her own floral wall, for the next big occasion or do one better and send it just to make her feel extra special.
Splurge on Hot Accessories
Spoil her with the hottest accessories to help her embrace her naughty side. Take her on a shopping spree at Barney’s or Neiman Marcus to pick out a few seductive ensembles. Start in the shoe department and find her a few new pairs of stilettos. Spare no expense, think of the brands of shoes her favorite celebrities wear: Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Jimmy Choo and Saint Laurent. Have her choose designer dresses to match each pair while you select lingerie from Yumdrop for her to wear underneath. To make her feel extra special, consider making an appointment with a personal shopper who can have racks full of clothes and shoes pulled in her sizes before your arrival.
The Best Things Come in Orange Boxes
Through changing handbag trends, one bag has managed to stay relevant for decades: the Birkin by Hermes. This oversized bag symbolizes all that is excess and indulgence. Each bag is handmade in France and the starting price is around $7,500. Depending on the material (ranging from leather to exotic skins like crocodile and lizard) these impeccable bags price up to $150,000. She may be happy with one Birkin, but why not surprise her with a few like Jay-Z did to Beyonce one Christmas. The rapper reportedly shelled out over $350,000 on Birkin bags for the singer at a Hermes shop in New York on Christmas Eve in 2010, according to Page Six.
Whisk Her Off On an Impromptu International Getaway
Show your spontaneity and take her on a luxe trip abroad. Choose a few romantic destinations like Lake Como, Santorini, St. Tropez, Florence and Paris and escape the daily grind for a few weeks. Leave your trip open-ended so you can spend more time in your favorite cities. You’ll surely leave her swooning like Blake Lively was after Leonardo DiCaprio whisked her around Europe in a whirlwind romance in 2011. Europe not for you? Instead, rent a yacht and cruise the Caribbean like Diddy.
Wine for Life
For the wine connoisseur, nothing says “you’re special” like the gift of a vineyard. Just ask Victoria Beckham. Her husband David gifted her with a Napa, CA, vineyard for her birthday in 2008. The Beckhams aren’t the only celebrities with their own vineyard. Sting has one in Italy, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have one in France and Gerard Depardieu has vineyards throughout France and in Argentina, Morocco and Spain. While this gift will set you back a few million dollars, just think of all you’ll save by having the house stocked with your own private label.
