Demi Lovato's Gift to Family: a New House | Demi Lovato

They say it's better to give than receive – and Demi Lovato was living that maxim this year. The teen star gave her family a gift on her 18th birthday. 

"I just bought a house," Lovato tells people  of a Mediterranean style home she purchased outside of L.A. "For me to give [that] to my family on my birthday, that was the best present." 

Lovato also plans to live on the property, in a house in the backyard. "It's got pretty much everything you could possibly imagine in it," she says. "It's the most beautiful, homey-feeling house. I love it."
