Last week, it was revealed that Drake, like many of us, is a fan of Hermès Birkin bags. The only difference is that he's already started collecting these luxury handbags to give to his future wife, whoever she may be. "There's very few tangible things in this world that hold their value and appreciate as the years go on," Drizzy told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was one of those things that I started collecting as well for, I guess, the woman that I end up with one day.

There are around 200,000 Birkins in circulation.
Hermès no longer takes special orders for the bag, and customers must wait for Birkins in the shades they desire to arrive in stores.
