TOM Cruise plans to lavish his adorable daughter with many expensive gifts over the festive period - including a $13.5 million house.

Suri Cruise - the Top Gun star’s daughter with ex-wife Katie Holmes - will celebrate her first Christmas since her parents’ divorce earlier this year with her very own New York City mansion and a pony.

Tom, 50, will have custody of Suri, six, for Christmas and is splashing out on gifts including the multi-million pound home in Upstate New York so she can have a place to keep her pony and all of her other toys, including a $30,000 miniature race car he bought for her in 2010.

“Tom is determined to make this the best Christmas ever,” a source said. “Obviously there isn’t anywhere to keep a pony at Katie’s apartment, so this place is ideal. It also has space for her toys, many of which have been in storage since Katie quit their LA mansion.”                                 –SS
