With Mother’s Day right around the corner, (this Sunday, in case you forgot!), we thought we would dedicate this blog post to the special gifts some celebrities give their mums.

While most mothers are expecting chocolates, flowers or breakfast in bed, the gifts of a celebrity mum are a little bit more elaborate. Indeed, many celebrities have chosen to buy a new car for their mothers and mother-in-laws. So if you find yourself with a significant amount of disposable income come Sunday, here are some of our favorite cars celebrities have given their mothers.

David Beckham – Audi Q3

When it comes to splashing out on mum, Britain’s celebrity royalty, Posh and Becks, don’t hold back. In fact, in 2013, David Beckham bought both his mother and mother-in-law matching $46,000 Audi Q3’s for Mother’s Day. Obviously, money is no object for the football superstar and pop princess who were all too happy to reward their mothers with the cars. After all, the mothers have played an important role in supporting the power couples’ hectic schedules with often regular babysitting duties.

Harry Styles – Mini Cooper

As the lead singer of UK boy-band sensation, One Direction, there is no doubt that a lot of yummy-mummy’s would be knocking at Harry Styles door. However, it seems he only has eyes for his own mother when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts. The pop star recently bought his mother a Mini Cooper convertible in 2011, which she later sold on eBay for $9,500. The description on eBay read: “The lucky winner can have the car handed over by Anna who will be delighted to meet the new owner … Don’t miss out on this unique car and photo opportunity.” Sounds a bit like mama cashing in on her son’s fame.

Kanye West – Bentley

Some people will do anything to get into good books with their mother-in-law, but only Kanye West would give his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, a $200,000 Bentley. While this is an amazing gift in itself, Kanye went even further and had Jenner’s initials embroidered in to the upholstery and a Swarovski crystal gear knob installed in the car.

Teddy Bridgewater – Cadillac Escalade SUV

Before entering the NFL Draft this week, University of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made good on a promise to his mother, Rose Murphy, a breast cancer survivor. That promise which was to get her a brand new Cadillac Escalade SUV was fulfilled just in time for Mother’s Day this year. “When I was in third grade, I promised my mom I would get her a pink Cadillac Escalade,” Bridgewater said. “Pink is the color that represents breast cancer awareness, so I just want to get her that big pink Escalade truck and see that big smile on her face.”
