George Clooney may be the man who has everything, but his new wife was up for the challenge anyway.

E! News has learned that Amal Alamuddin has dropped some decent cash for a surprise newlywed gift that she bought for the actor, whom she married in Venice, Italy, just last month. The 36-year-old lawyer is currently in Greece working on a case, but sources tell us that she has ordered a shipment of handmade Murano cocktail glasses from Venice as a surprise for her hubby!

Her gift is extra-sentimental because she made sure to put in a request to buy the exact same glasses that they drank out of during their nearly week-long wedding celebration in Italy, and it certainly wasn't cheap.

According to our sources, the brightly colored tumblers are $100 apiece and Alamuddin wanted 12 of them to go in the bar at their brand new, eight-bedroom home near London.
"Amal loves the idea of them having the same cocktail glasses that they use at the Cipriani Hotel in Venice," the source tells E! News. "George admired them every time he looked at them during the wedding celebrations and they didn't have time to go shopping in Venice, so she's ordered them in as a post-wedding gift for him. It means that every time they curl up with a cocktail at home they'll think of their wedding and be reminded of all the happy memories."
She's also ordered a 12-piece set of matching silk napkins and hand-crafted napkin holders to match the glasses, which came to total of $2,500.

In other post-wedding news, Alamuddin has taken her husband's name! At least for professional purposes. She's now listed as "Amal Clooney" on her company's website.

Speaking of professional purposes, the newlywed didn't waste much time before getting back to work. Alamuddin was spotted looking chic as ever as she strolled through Heathrow Airport Monday morning to catch a flight to Athens. She is in Greece this week with fellow law firm partners to meet with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras regarding Greece's bid to win back the Parthenon Marbles, a set of ancient sculptures currently held at London's British Museum.

Meanwhile, Clooney got back to work last week. The 53-year-old Oscar winner was at New York Comic-Con on Thursday to promote his upcoming flick Tomorrowland. He also shared the first clip of the highly anticipated Disney film and even snapped selfies with several fans at the event.

"It is not lost on me that I'm spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con," he told Comic-Con goers during a panel.
