What do you get for the reality star and entrepreneur who has everything?

If you are Kanye West you donate $1 million to your wife’s favorite charities.

Kim Kardashian West turned 39 on Oct. 21 and her husband’s gift touched her heart.

“I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye for me the most amazing bags,” she tweeted. “But he also donated $1 million to my favorite charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids. This makes my heart so happy!”

Kardashian West has emerged as a champion for criminal justice reform and her husband donated to Cut 50, Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative and the Anti-Recidivism Coalition.

Not that she didn’t also have a bit of a traditional birthday as well.

She tweeted she “had the best most relaxing birthday ever! Spent the weekend w my amazing friends in Palm Springs and then had a family dinner at my house tonight thrown by my mom and Kanye.”

But when you are a mogul that dinner is catered by your favorite eatery (in her case the Armenian restaurant Carousel) and includes a beignet truck and churro stand.

How to Own Your Birthday Like You’re Queen Beyoncé Herself

Sept. 4 is a very important day in the lives of the Beyhive.

It’s Beyoncé’s birthday, also known as “Bey Day.”

It comes once every year, and her fans always seem to stay in formation, buzzing all through the interwebs as they scour for the details of how their Queen Bey spent her day.

The Texas diva has an unofficial holiday, so it’s clear she has conquered the birthday girl experience. But don’t worry. You can, too.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate your birthday—no matter how old you are—just like Beyoncé.

Write About How Strong And Successful You Are

Beyoncé opened up to her fans in a rare Instagram post a few days after her 37th birthday in 2018.

She shared a photo of herself slicing into a fruit-topped cake while Jay-Z took a video of her on his phone.

“At 36, I became a new mother of 3. I breastfed twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of ten years. I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy,” she wrote in a lengthy caption. “Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything Is Love. And we’ve been touring with our family around the world, and loving it.”

Beyoncé achieved a lot that year, and she made sure she gave herself the credit.

It’s OK to be proud of yourself. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back on your special day.

Go Watch Another Icon Slay

If Beyoncé shows up at your performance, that’s a gift in itself. But if she comes to watch you show out on the weekend of her own birthday … that’s a gift that keeps giving.

Beyoncé and her husband and rapper Jay-Z got an early start to Bey’s 38th birthday celebration. The celebrity couple was spotted jamming to Lizzo at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia.

Lizzo reacted how any other human being raised on Queen Bey’s music might—she freaked out.

Maybe consider making someone else’s day even if it’s your birthday.
