This family does everything big. Countless TV shows, NBA players and world-famous rappers as spouses and a fleet of sports cars in the driveway. So it’s only natural that when it comes to gift giving, the Kardashian Klan takes it to another level!
Rob Kardashian’s birthday is today, so we figured now is as good a time as any to remind you that no one can hold a candle to the kind of extravagant presents this family exchanges. Here’s ten items, in no particular order, that barely scratch the surface…
Just last month, Kris Jenner decided to do something special for her only son. Did she text him a heart emoji? Maybe bake his favorite desert? No, no, no…Kris bought Rob a $2.2 million home in the prestigious Oaks of Calabasas gated community mere blocks from Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner’s own swanky digs. The then-28-year-old apparently needed some independence from the other Kardashian/Jenners. A four bedroom/five bath, 4,256 square ft. home a short walk from his sisters should do it.

Turning 18 is incredibly exciting for everyone, and you know the gifts you receive for your 18th birthday are usually exceptional. A car or a trip to Europe are some staples to commemorate the occasion. So, last year, when Kylie Jenner became a legal adult, her friends and family showered her with extravagant items. However, nothing comes close to the gift she received from her boyfriend Tyga. The rapper gave young Kylie a $320,000 Ferrari 458 Italiafor her big day. Done. Game over.
If you’re going to ask someone to marry you, you’d better have the bling to back up your proposition. So when Kanye asked Kim to be his wife, he came prepared. He presented Kim with a 15-carat ring designed by famed jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. The price tag? Some estimate it to be around $1.25 million, others claim it could be worth as much as $8 million! Wut.
Christmas just isn’t Christmas without the spirit of giving and Tyga clearly knows how to get in the spirit! Last year, the hip-hop star decided to do something special for Kylie, presenting her with a gigantic diamond ring with an estimated value of $33,000. Tinsel wasn’t the only thing sparkling at Kris’ Christmas Eve party!
Kanye may not have the last name, but his gift-giving skills are raising the bar for the whole Kardashian family! And no one can customize a thoughtful gift like Kim’s better half. In 2013, West gave his wife a one-of-a-kind item estimated to be worth over a one million bucks. He presented her with a large Hermes bag, which on its own sells for around $16,000, but he took it one step further! On the side of the bag is a painting of four nudes by world-renowned artist George Condo. His art has sold at auction for over a $1 million, making this bag not only unique and expensive, but a work of art!
Rob is also a pro at gifting and when Valentine’s Day rolled around last month, he had something special planned his lady friend Blac Chyna. He commissioned a seven foot by seven foot portrait of the model — with a price tag of $35,000. Why so expensive? Tonia Calderon, the artist behind the painting, incorporated lyrics from the John Legend song “The Beginning,” which were covered with diamond dust! That’s the stuff that accumulates when a diamond is cut and it costs $50 per ounce.
Kanye may be the master at gift giving but Mrs. West is no slouch. When the “All Day” rapper turned 38 last year, Kim held a party for her hubby that is gonna be hard for anyone to top. Kim rented out Staples Center for Kanye and his pals! That’s right, the arena in which the Lakers and Clippers play. The rapper and guests like Justin Bieber, Pusha T, James Harden and 2 Chainz played on the court. Extravagant enough? Oh yeah, John Legend sang the national anthem (and “Happy Birthday”) and ballers like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson and Carmelo Anthony recorded videos offering their birthday wishes, which played on the jumbotron. And Kim had a caked made in the shape of the prestigious Larry O’Brien award, the NBA’s championship trophy. How much did the event cost Kim? $110,000.
Because Kimmy loves her handbags, Kanye arranged for another truly unique gift for the reality star’s 34th birthday. When North West was just one year old, Kanye had her paint a Hermes handbag, even putting her tiny hand print on the side of the luxury item. Hermes bags run from $10,000 to $60,000! So, although we don’t know the exact price of the item, we know that North had some pricey canvas to work with!
Just because North is still a toddler doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve nice things! Saint West’s older sister got a brand new fur coat late last year. Early estimates projected the cost of the coat to be around $3,500. But then Kanye released the track “Facts,” which seemed like a response to the estimate. In the song, he says he bought a $10,000 fur coat for his daughter! The exact lyric is: “10 thousand dollar fur for Nori, I just copped it/Your baby daddy won’t even take your daughter shoppin’.” Leave it to Kanye to get the “Facts” straight!
Back to Kylie and her insane 18th birthday… before her big day even arrived, her family gave her an enormous handbag (are you seeing a trend here?). The label? Hermes (another glaring trend). Remember, these bags start at around $10,000. This family is amassing the greatest handbag collection in history!
