(Newser) – What to get for the guy who has everything? If you're Angelina Jolie and the guy is Brad Pitt, the answer is ... a waterfall. That's what Pitt got for Christmas from Jolie, but if it makes you feel any better, it was also a combo gift for his 48th birthday. "Brad has always loved [Frank Lloyd Wright's house] Fallingwater and his first trip there was unforgettable," a friend explains to the Daily Mail. Jolie bought the Los Angeles-area waterfall and its surrounding land so that Pitt can build his own house there, inspired by Wright's design.

"Angelina wanted to get him something incredibly special and, because she knows how much he loves architecture, she thought this would be perfect," the source continues. "She hopes this will be a hideaway for the family. Brad has dreamed of a home with the sound of a waterfall cascading under the house." He's also always wanted to design his own home, the friend adds. (According to a People poll, Pitt and Jolie are America's No. 2 favorite would-be celebrity neighbors.
