Olive Tree

  • Given to: Brad Pitt
  • From: Angelina Jolie
  • When: 2010
  • Estimated Value: $18,500

The Academy Award-winning actress reportedly bought her A-list hubby a 200-year-old olive tree last Valentine’s Day as a symbol of their love for one another. (Or she might have just been making a Valentine’s Day knock-knock joke ... Olive You!)

The olive tree, which represents peace and goodwill, is said to be planted at their $60 million estate in the south of France.
