We don’t envy Nick Cannon, whom we imagine has the same dilemma every year when deciding on a birthday gift for wife Mariah Carey: What do you get for the girl who has everything? (Uh, do you remember her episode of Cribs?) This year, Cannon stuck to the basics. Any by basics, we mean a blinged-out butterfly-embellished bracelet covered in diamonds.

“Nick surprised me for 3/27 with a stellar diamond bracelet encrusted with 3 floating butterflies!” the singer shared on Twitter, along with a photo showing off the crazy baubles. “I’m just happy he’s here!!!! #familytime #festivity.”

Cannon also shared the below snap on Instagram, with the caption, “I think she’s happy…”

I think she's happy…

Carey, who turned 44 Thursday, loves sharing her family moments on social media. For Valentine’s Day she posted a sexy bathtub photo shoot on Instagram (wearing a candy-heart bra). And she’s no stranger to the good ol’ bikini photo.

What do you think of her birthday gift? Share your thoughts below!

Wouldn’t it be the most amazing gift if he took all that money that darn thing cost and put it towards a good cause. I say Donate the expensive bling for a greater good!!!!!

Ugly. Ohmygosh. I would never. These two have no class. Everything is for show and tell. Who the hay even cares??? Do they wear these fugly pieces of metal washing dishes, changing diapers, cleaning the house, oh excuse me …. houses?

That bracelet is just crazy ugly. Sick of all the excess. I love Mariah’s music. I used to think she was gorgeous. Way too over the top, cheap, trashy looking now. Her face is still gorgeous though and she appears to not have had any work done.

I guess not even gift giving is private anymore……and MarMar, it’s time to put the boobs away, they’re sagging quite a bit, and a little gross now. You look like my Grandma. Some 44 year olds can get away with it, but yours, girl, look like they’d hit the ground if unchained!!

Tango on

Gawdy and god awful taste. Money doesn’t buy class, and that’s very apparent here.

I love them together. They seem genuinely happy.

#Alex — A good cause is keeping his wife, marriage, and children happy. What is your “good cause?” Now, make sure you keep your good cause happy. Sheesh!!!
