(Newser) – Now that the holiday shopping season has officially begun, you're probably wondering what to get that friend who has everything. Maybe you can score some ideas from this list of the craziest, most expensive gifts of the stars, courtesy of E!:

  • Last year for Christmas, Nick Cannon got wife Mariah Carey a $400,000 Rolls Royce with the personalized license plate "mommyMC."
  • One of the trendiest celebrity gifts is a trip to space. Ashton Kutcher, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Katy Perry, and Tom Hanks are among those who have put down deposits for Virgin Galactic's trips, which start at a cost of $200,000.
  • They say you should spend money on experiences, not things, so perhaps follow Prince William's lead and buy someone an ultra-private vacation in the Seychelles for a cost of more than $21,000 per week. Bill Gates and Brangelina have enjoyed time there, too.
  • When all else fails, everyone loves a horse. No one knows exactly how much Ann Romney's cost, but it was probably in the six figures, and her upkeep costs $77,000 per year.
