Shopping for a significant other’s birthday is hard. Especially when that significant other is Kanye West and you gifted him a $750,000 Lamborghini when he turned 35. Which is why we’re here to help out Kim Kardashian. Her husband’s 37th birthday is Sunday and with all she has going on (sending post-wedding thank-you notes, taking belfies, filming cameos on Kourtney and Khloé’s new series in New York’s Hamptons vacation area), we thought we’d help a girl out and round up some presents that West would surely be happy to open on his special day.

Balmain Cotton Harem Pants: After a long day of work (of which the rapper is going to have many this year since he’s on the road for the Yeezus tour), a dude needs something comfy to kick back in. And a pair of $463 sweatpants from one of the couple’s favorite design houses (they were seen visiting the offices during their Paris wedding-planning trip) seems right up West’s alley.

Leica MP ‘Edition Hermès’ Camera: West doesn’t seem to post as much on his Instagram as his new wife, so we can only assume that he’s more of an old-school “take photos, get them printed and put them in an album” kinda guy. Which makes this custom leather-covered camera, which is part of collaboration with the designer, perfect for him. He can use this gadget to capture snaps of baby North, selfies with Jay-Z and his travels on tour. Because, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a picture taken with a $17,700 camera must be worth, like, a gazillion.

Bambi-Commissioned Painting: For their wedding, the groom gave his bride a portrait of her painted by a Bansky-esque street artist named Bambi (whose artwork goes for about $3,400 a pop). The art depicts Kim in nothing but a G-string and Louboutin heels (if your husband didn’t give something like this to you on your wedding, you may want to rethink your union), and it will reportedly be hung in the couple’s bedroom. Kardashian should totally return the favor and get a portrait done of West, though we’d suggest a different wardrobe for his painting.

Lanvin sneakersCourtesy of Lanvin

Lanvin High-Tops: What do you get the man who has everything? More of something he loves and already has a ton of: high-tops. And while Kardashian should really step it up and have the creative director of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz, to design a pair of custom kicks, time is running out so she’s stuck getting him this pair of off-the-rack turquoise sneakers, which go for $1,475. The bright color will be perfect for summer, plus they match the sweatpants we recommended.

Which of these gifts do you think Kanye West would most like to receive from his new wife? Or do you have a better suggestion for Kim Kardashian? Give us your present pick in the comments below!

Kim has money to buy Kanye anything, but you can’t buy smiles & a personality… He has none.

Very good Patricia! Why do you need someone else’s suggestions! He has everything and can get everything! Why not donate his birthday $ to a worthy cause in his name!

I have an idea! How about a large, extravagant, over the top, ridiculously expensive DONATION that helps someone else out?

Karen on

Duct tape for his mouth or a brain.

Kanye can afford to buy himself anything he wants. For Kim, it should be the thought that counts. Give him something that he will treasure – a framed photograph of their proposal, song lyrics, something private they say to each other – something she can put her heart into. And also make an example by donating to a charity in his name. That’s a present they both can use – an image change from wasteful, extravagant, self-centeredness to social do-gooders. Get him back down to earth – that’s the greatest gift she could give him.
