If money were no object, what would you buy the people in your life?

These superstars received some of the most lavish Christmas gifts imaginable from their labels, lovers, family - or they simply spoiled themselves.

Justin Bieber set himself up with a private G4 jet, snapping his Christmas charter on Instagram.

A G4 reportedly retails for around US$60 million, but since the Biebs was estimated to earn at least US$80 million last year alone, he can probably afford to splash out.

Kanye surprised Kim last Christmas with a custom Hermes handbag, hand-painted by George Condo.

The Hermes handbag alone goes for at least US$16,000, but the addition of George Condo - whose work features in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and collections across the US and Europe - likely boosts the price quite a bit.

In 2012, one of Condo's artworks sold for more than US$1.3 million.

Designer and custom baby fashion from Stella McCartney, Giuseppe Zanotti, Charlotte Olympia and Hermes Paris. Zanotti shoes can sell for more than US$3,000, while McCartney onesies sell for a little over US$100.

Kanye and Kim might have decided they didn't go far enough in 2013 - because last Christmas the price tag for North's santa stocking went even higher, with the celeb couple buying her a diamond-encrusted tiara (US$62,000) and a miniature replica of Kanye's very own black SUV (US$12,000).

The undefeated champion boxer bought himself this 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith as an early Christmas gift.

The Wraith typically costs around $300,000 in the US - but that isn't much when you consider Mayweather took home north of two hundred million dollars in just one fight - after he beat out Manny Pacquiao in a battle billed The Fight of The Century and watched by millions worldwide.

Mayweather might struggle to find room in his garage for the Wraith - after all, he's already the proud owner of a Ferrari Enzo (which though released in 2003, still trades at more than a million dollars) and McClaren 650S (starting at US$441,500).

Iggy scored a massive diamond-covered, heart-shaped pendant necklace from fiance Nick Young.

It wasn't the last piece of ice he would gift rapper Azalea - in June of this year he proposed with a ring reportedly worth more than half a million dollars.

The LA Lakers star's Christmas gift to Iggy didn't go unrewarded after she dropped him a 1962 Chevy Impala.

Highly sought after by classic car enthusiasts, Impalas can go for up to US$100,000.

So it wasn't quite for Christmas - but in December 2012 Beyonce splashed out on a US$5 million dollar Hublot 'Big Bang' watch, encrusted with more than one thousand diamonds.

Jay-Z is a massive watch fan - once rapping he had so many watches "I need eight arms," but this piece is sure to take the cake.

Maybe they'll count that one as a combination Christmas/Birthday gift. Then again, with a combined net worth of around US$1 billion - maybe not.

The rapper posted his Bentley Continental GT snap and said "Work hard and buy your own presents for yourself."

The base model of a GT goes for more than US$200,000 - and that's without any of the bells and whistles Soulja Boy may have helped himself to. Still, we wouldn't blame him - he's rumoured to be worth around $23 million.

Rihanna found an original Jeff Koons sculpture at home, a Christmas gift from creative director Ciarra Pardo.

Koons - one of America's most critically acclaimed artists - holds the record for creating the most expensive artwork sold by a living artist. In 2013, his Balloon Dog (Orange) sold for US$58.4 million.

It's still a ridiculous Christmas present - but in the best kind of way. In 2009, one hundred of Oprah's employees and their families were treated to an all-expenses paid cruise around the Mediterranean at a cost of US$750,000.

Oprah has a history of surprising people and giving out extravagant gifts. In 2004, she gave a brand-new car to every member of her studio audience. In 2006, she gifted 50 young Americans with college scholarships.
