Christmas in simple terms is about a present which God gave the world in the form of Jesus. One of the most famous Bible verses, John 3:16, says: ‘God loved the world so much, that he gave his one and only Son, so that whoever believes in him may not be lost but have eternal life.’

All over the world, families and friends give presents to one another. Additionally, most children around the world believe in Santa in many different forms. For example, we may be familiar with St. Nicholas, Santa Claus or Father Christmas, but in Germany they believe in ‘Christkind’. Whereas, in Spain they believe in ‘Wise Men’, and in Italy they believe in an older lady, called ‘Befana’.
Here’s a list of some of the most talked about Celebrity Christmas Gifts over past few years:
In 2011, all Suri Cruise wanted for Christmas was $130,000 worth of presents. Not surprisingly, doting dad, Tom Cruise was happy to give it to her. While most five-year-olds would be content with Barbies or Legos, Suri’s wishlist was a little more luxerious, including a pony, diamond earrings, and designer gowns “that will make her look like a fairy princess.”
What do you do when you want a white Christmas in Los Angeles? When you’re Tori Spelling’s dad, you buy it! Uber-producer, Aaron Spelling once had a snow machine deliver tons of fake snow (reportedly $2 Million worth) to their home in Beverly Hills, so young Tori and her brother could have their very own “winter wonderland.” However, what was the best part? Tori loved it so much, she did the same thing for her own kids in 2009 with hubby Dean McDermott.
Jude Law is as generous as he is good looking! One Christmas evening, he showered former flame Sienna Miller with a restored baby grand piano for their North London mansion. If that’s not extravagant enough, he hid a diamond and sapphire ring inside (worth $200,000) as a special surprise. Amazing as this gift (and proposal), sadly the couple didn’t last long. Perhaps ‘it’s the thought that counts’ simply was not enough.
Beyoncé’s hot hubby Jay-Z may have 99 problems, but his Bugatti isn’t one! In 2010, the sexy songstress gifted her man the world’s fastest car worth a whopping $2 Million. Talk about a December birthday gift (let’s hope it qualified for his Christmas present too). But spending this amount of dough is nothing for this superstar couple; Jay-Z rang in the holiday cheer by buying her $350,000 worth of Birkin bags from Hermes.
