Kanye West is arguably one of the best artists of all time, but what's not up for debate is his gift-giving skills: the man is hands down the BEST GIFT-GIVING HUSBAND out here!
On Sunday (January 13), the Jesus Is King rapper's wife Kim Kardashian revealed her husband's latest gift to her — a vintage Cartier necklace, but with a twist.
"If you look closely at my necklace, you can see it’s from a text Kanye sent me," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned a photo of herself wearing a gold necklace. "He took an amazing vintage a Cartier gold plaque necklace and had it sketched out. He’s always the most thoughtful when it comes to gifts ✨." Kim additionally shared a screenshot of the text conversation, which read, "This your life. Married with four kids. Get people out of jail. Cover of Vogue. Go to church every week with your family. Dreams come true."
As fans know, Ye puts a lot of thought into his gifts for his wife. In October, Kim revealed that Kanye donated $1 million to charity in her honor as his and their children's birthday gift to her. "I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye for me the most amazing bags. But he also donated $1 million to my favorite charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids," Kim wrote on Twitter. "This makes my heart so happy!
Months before that, Ye gifted his wife a $14 million condo for Christmas. (Yes, you read that right — a $ 14 MILLION condo). And if that wasn't enough to convince you that Ye is truly the ultimate gift-giving husband, Kim shared in a podcast in 2018 that he once gave her a Mother's Day surprise so big that even she was shocked by his generosity. "He's like the cutest. A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on some of their clothing and they typically—I don't want to say who the brand is—but they typically knock off Yeezy," she recalled. "Let me ask Kanye how he feels about it and he says, 'No babe. I really don't want you to do that.' Understandable but that's a lot of money."
"Mother's Day was like the next week. Mother's Day comes and he happened to be recording out of town and I get my flowers and then I get an envelope delivered to the door," she continued. "I opened the envelope and it was a million dollar check with a note saying thank you for always supporting me and not posting. And then, in the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy—to have my percentage. And that was my Mother's Day present."
Here's to hoping we all end up on Ye's gift-giving list at some point in life!
