Kelly Rowland's Gift for Beyonce, Jay-Z Baby: $5.2K Baby Bathtub
The Baby Diamond Bathtub can also be used for your pet ... or to hold your beverages.   (

If there ever was an infant truly impossible to shop for, it’s the child who will be born to Beyonce and Jay-Z—what baby shower gift can you possibly buy for a couple who already has a $1 million “mom van” and a 2,200-square-foot nursery? Fortunately for Kelly Rowland, who faced just such a dilemma, the $5,200 pink-Swarovski-crystal-covered Baby Diamond Bathtub exists. Rowland—who Beyonce has said will be known as "Auntie Kelly"—also had one other little issue to contend with when deciding upon her pricey gift.

You see, Rowland accidentally let slip earlier this month that Bey and Jay are having a girl. "I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyonce at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible," said the former Destiny’s Child singer. "She won’t be spoiled but she will be very well looked-after." Hopefully the 3,000-pound tub, bedazzled with 44,928 crystals, makes up for that little oops. ABC News notes that, for those who don’t have a baby but simply must have the tub anyway, it can also be used as a beverage chiller. (More Beyonce stories.)
