Here are some of the best celebrity wedding gifts requested:
1. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

2. Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
Jamie Hince and Kate Moss wedding gift ideas included fourteen ashtrays, made of crystal and each costing USD300.
3. Stella McCartney and Alasdhair Willis
Not all celebrities want high-priced household décor items. Fashion designer Stella McCartney had a wedding gift idea that was surprisingly modest. With her husband Alasdhair, the couple asked their guests to buy them trees so they could plant their own forest.
4. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Angelina’s wedding gift to her husband was a USD250,000 typewriter once used by Ernest Hemingway to write his famous novels.
5. Eva Longoria and Tony Parker
Their wedding gift list included a request for some USD100 Tiffany cocktail stirrers.
6. Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
Amal’s wedding gift for George was thoughtful and romantic. She gifted him twelve handmade cocktail glasses from Venice, designed to match the glasses at the Hotel Cipriani where they stayed together after their wedding.
7. Prince Charles and Diana
Not sure why you would want to add this to your wedding gift ideas list, but one of the wedding gifts for the newly married Prince and Princess of Wales was a diamond encrusted model boat, costing USD645,000.
8. Liza Minelli and David Gest
Looking at any celebrity wedding gift ideas list and it can be surprising the quantity as well as the value of gifts chosen. Liza Minelli added four soup tureens costing USD3200 each on her wedding gift list.
9. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Her second marriage and a second wedding gift ideas list for Kim. It’s difficult to choose a gift for the woman who has everything, but Kanye bought Kim a portrait of herself, wearing only Louboutins and a g-string and called it ‘Perfect B*tch’.
10. Anne Hathaway and Adam Schulman
Whilst a celebrity couple may add a Tiffany salt and pepper shaker set worth USD500 on their wedding gifts list and expect to receive it, some celebrities are surprised by wedding gifts that are not on their list. When actress Anne Hathaway married Adam Schulman, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) sponsored a cow named Peter in the couple’s honour.
11. Prince Edward and Countess Sophie of Wessex
When this royal couple tied the knot, they certainly didn’t hold back on their wedding gift ideas list. Maybe you do have to be the son of the Queen of England to suggest you be bought a solid silver teapot, which cost USD11,600, and matching jugs at USD12,800.
12. Victoria and David Beckham
The Beckhams married at the height of their young success, and at a time when they appeared to have everything. This being the case, the couple asked on their wedding gifts list for shopping vouchers.
13. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
The Hollywood power couple asked for cash instead of wedding gifts, which might appear odd considering the couple’s wealth, but the money they received went into a trust fund for their son Dylan. When he reaches 18, in August 2018, Dylan will be able to donate it to the charities of his choice.
