We all want to show how much we love our partners, perhaps by buying flowers, cooking a nice meal, or taking a spontaneous romantic trip. But celebrities have taken this to another level with grand romantic gestures, such as buying expensive cars and renting out stadiums.
Our hearts swelled at Bright Side when we heard about these romantic expressions of love.
1. Justin Bieber
