Robert Pattinson: $12K in guitars (but no KStew) for Christmas

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart dropped some cash on Xmas gifts

Though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart spent the Christmas holidays with their respective families this year -- on different continents -- the couple exchanged some impressive gifts to serve as romantic reminders.

For Pattinson, Stewart nabbed two vintage guitars (a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and a 1947 K&F Lap Steel, for you music buffs). The instruments cost something to the tune of $12,000.

"She said, 'He's gonna ... when he sees them!' " the owner of Norman's Rare Guitars in Tarzana told Us Weekly, which first reported the "Twilight Saga" heroine's purchase.

Pattinson was spotted on Christmas Eve in London palling around with his close friend Tom Sturridge's ex-girlfriend. Stewart was said to be in stateside in Los Angeles with her family.

Stewart got some creature comforts of her own, however, courtesy of her "Water for Elephants" hunk: around $500 worth of vintage furniture -- lamps and a wooden bench -- from an L.A. operation called TINI.

As any avid follower of the couple knows, their Christmas separation isn't anything to raise an eyebrow over: These two have a New Year's Eve tradition. For the past two years they've done their own little countdown on the modest Isle of Wight, a seaside haven that offers them added privacy.
