Getting a message from a loved one on your birthday is nice and all, but wouldn’t it be better to get a personalized greeting from a movie star or famous hippo? With Cameo, you can have celebrities in every field record messages to give as gifts to friends and family on nearly every occasion.

1. Larry Thomas a.k.a The Soup Nazi from Seinfeld; $80

One of the most memorable one-off characters from Seinfeld has to be the Soup Nazi. Actor Larry Thomas played the terse, tortured soul of soup, and his performance was recognized with an Emmy nomination in 1996. While $80 will get you a special video message in character, you’ll have to pay extra for him to don his chef’s jacket.
