While Amal and George Clooney are among the most A-list of celebrity couples, Amal's birthday present for the Academy Award winner may be about as un-glam as it gets.
But that could be the very reason why George, who married the 38-year-old international human-rights attorney in September 2014, is "very excited" about his gift.
Speaking this week with ET Canada beside his "Money Monster" co-star Julia Roberts at the Cannes Film Festival, George joked that he celebrated his 55th birthday "by crying and drinking," and admitted he's a tough person for whom to shop for birthday gifts. "I am difficult to buy for, because I can sort of buy what [I] want, and because I'm sort of picky about things," he said.
However, Amal, however, managed to be a cut above with her celebratory selection.
"We have a beautiful front lawn at our house in England and I used to mow lawns when I was a kid … so, she bought me this giant riding lawnmower that is sitting at the house right now," Clooney added, "and I'm very excited about putting that to work when I get home."
No matter what kind of present Amal, 38, got George, their relationship may be the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
"I've never been happier in a relationship by any stretch of the imagination," the 55-year-old actor told Esquire for one of the magazine's May cover stories, published last month. "At 52, I found the love of my life and I'm really happy."
