The more we hear about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s plans to get hitched later this year, the more we’re starting to realize that this could actually happen! There’s just one report we’re kinda hoping isn’t true: Shelton’s wedding gift.
Apparently Shelton has some big — and we mean big — plans for his wedding gift to Stefani, and no expense is being spared because according to Daily Mail, he’s in the process of getting a Hawaiian-style lake house built in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. The property has three hut-style guest rooms complete with grass roofs, a swimming pool (which has its own bar), and then the main residence.
Tishomingo is also rumored to be the place where the family (Shelton, Stefani and her three young sons) will base themselves after they’ve tied the knot.
As for what the Tishomingo locals think about the pair settling down in their quiet community? Well, apparently they couldn’t be happier and have already fallen in love with Stefani (whereas they failed to warm to Miranda Lambert).
A neighbor also shared their thoughts on the couple’s new home, telling Daily Mail, “We’ve seen Blake here several times. He wants it finished in time for their wedding as the ideal gift for Gwen. It’s going to be a place to have some fun when they’re not at his ranch. He’s been keeping an eye on how his property is coming along, making sure everything is perfect. It’s a Hawaiian-style place with lots of character.” They added that Stefani and her boys have been to the property just once, but appeared to be excited about it and look forward to the finished product.
Hey, if they’re happy then who are we to complain? But it’s a pretty lavish wedding gift, and it just seems like a bit much. Don’t get us wrong, we love Shelton and Stefani as a couple, but Shelton might want to rethink his wedding gift and opt for something a little less quirky and expensive. Not that Stefani won’t appreciate it, and not that the offer isn’t super-generous, but Shelton doesn’t really need to make such a grand gesture to prove his love, right?
