Giving, celebrity style

What do you give the loved ones in your life? Look to celebs as a guide. They are zillionaires and can buy whatever they want, but we found stuff that you won’t need Brad Pitt‘s salary to afford.

Makes sense that Heidi Klum would present her buddies with Victoria’s Secret beauty products; the Project Runway star has worked for the lingerie retailer most of her adult life. Our fave is a gift set of all their top-selling fragrances like Love Rocks and Very Sexy in mini versions. Mmm, smells like models! $40, .

Mothers of stars are tres sophisticated, and this perfume may be more down their alley. Ilana Jivago, who is behind the original 24K, has a newbie out there. It’s called White Gold, which actually includes the precious mineral in its ingredients. Maybe this is how the Kardashians reward Kris for keeping up with them. $87-$130 at Nordstrom.

Miami Heat is the hottest team on the planet so pick up Sportiqe’s vintage-style hoodies and T’s celebrating The Three Kings. They’re comfy because they’ve been washed dozens of times to get that worn-in feel — as if Dwyane Wade slept in ’em. From $32 at AmericanAirlines Arena, .

Three words that cause instant happiness to actresses like Brooke Shields, Ali Larter and Teri Hatcher: Godiva baked goods. The Belgian chocolatier’s Dessert Gift Tower is da bomb. The sugar overload begins with truffles, moves up to caramel pecan chocolate brownies and is topped off with fudgey Madeleines. The whole package is neatly tied up in a bow — easy breezy. $100 even; .

Jameson Whiskey is hot stuff — it’s what Lady Gaga got Anderson Cooper plowed with during a 60 Minutes interview. It’s also the name Pink is gonna give her kid if it’s a boy. Let’s just hope this isn’t the bottle the rocker feeds him. Around $25 a bottle. If you really want to step it up, try the Gold Reserve, $60.

Most stars have little critters to call their own — and what better way to pamper them than with their very own beauty products? Glam Italian pharmacy Santa Maria Novella (Justin Bateman, Gwen Stefani and Toni Collette are fans) has a new, all-natural line for dogs and cats. Think bug repellent and mouthwash for when they eat something yucky like hairballs. From $18 at SMN’s Bal Harbour Shops store.

How do hunks like Adrien Brody and Sean Connery wind down after a long day on the set? They nurse The Macallan’s 18-year-old single malt scotch whiskey. The older the better with this stuff. Unlike Hollywood. $150 for gift box; .

Celebs make so much moola they feel guilty if they don’t give back. Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon have all designed Tiny Prints holiday cards slash ornaments that benefit kids with epidermolysis bullosa, a rare skin condition. From $29.99 for pack of 10 cards at .

Some stars really get into the holiday spirit of things. But rarely do they have time to care for a tree (all those pesky needles). That’s why lovelies like Amy Adams, Mariska Hargitay and Courteney Cox bring Thymes’ Frasier Fir collection into their homes. The line of candles, creams and reed diffusers smell just like the real thing. From just $10 at .

If it’s good enough to make Oprah‘s favorite things list, you can feel safe gifting it to somebody close. Origins’ classic Just Ginger collection rocks a spicy, festive scent. Wrap yourself in the souffle body cream — it’s more decadent than riding in the back of a limo with Lindsay Lohan fresh out of rehab. OK, maybe not. $42.50, .

Silver Oak Cellars’ motto: Life is a Cabernet. Sounds good. Those with sophisticated palates and hefty bank accounts make the drive to the Napa Valley to get a taste of this wondrous elixir made from the finest, most carefully selected grapes. Mortals can buy the Library’s Selection of three bottles in a wooden box for $275. Tell the recipient to drink slowly.
