Katie Holmes Christmas Shopping
Spree for Tom Cruise, Suri: $100K!

The National Ledger

There are only five shopping days left until Christmas and certainly the fabulous Katie Holmes knows how to shop. A report from In Touch Weekly claims that Katie got into the holiday spirit with a festive lunch with girlfriends — and a $100,000 shopping spree! Merry Christmas Katie.

According to a report from the magazine, the actress joined some friends for a bite to eat at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills on December 15, but after picking up the $300 tab, she ditched her pals and shopped until she dropped. Katie, 29, spent more than $70,000 just on her husband, Tom Cruise, 45.

He may want to stop reading right now if he doesn't want to know what will be under the tree. The mag claims Katie's gift buying binge included a $30,000 rose-gold Cartier wristwatch. “She’s rich now, so money was really no object and Katie never once looked at a price tag," a chatty insider tells the magazine.

In addition to the expensive watch, Katie bought Tom a black Giorgio Armani suit for $5,400, Gucci snakeskin sneakers for $990, a Prada ski coat for $1,395 and four pairs of Barker Black handmade English shoes at $825 each. Afterward, Katie hit the Loro Piana department and loaded up on everything cashmere, including a $9,000 overcoat, a $2,995 car coat, a $4,495 leather and cashmere jacket and six V-neck sweaters in various colors at $1,350 each.

Tom wasn’t the only one on her list: Katie also dropped nearly $5,000 on dresses and clothes for her 20-month-old daughter, Suri. “Katie looked so happy,” shopper Michele Gargani reveals to In Touch. “She was definitely in the Christmas spirit.” “Katie is one of the biggest spenders at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills,” says an insider."
