Mr. Claus will never be able to top Tyrese Gibson's recent gift to his 8-year-old daughter, not even with help from all of the elves in the North Pole and maybe some of the reindeer chipping in too. Well, unless they can somehow build an island.

At GQ’s Men of the Year awards, Entertainment Tonight caught up with the 36-year-old actor/singer and asked him about the most lavish gift he's ever given or received, to which he gave the following response.

"I just bought my daughter an island. Can’t say [where]. She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I’ll be putting it up on my Facebook soon."

In case you didn't catch that, let me reiterate: Tyrese Gibson bought his 8-year-old daughter, Shayla, an island. And let's keep in mind, he's still got something up his sleeve for her Christmas present this year!

Maybe it was that I spent my entire childhood on Santa's naughty list, or more likely because I don't come from Fast and Furious franchise money, but an island makes all of my childhood presents feel like lumps of coal.

I guess we'll have to keep a weathered eye on the horizon—by which I mean Tyrese's Facebook—for further news about Shayla's island.
