Take a look inside the over-the-top gift bag every major Oscar nominee will receive
Every year for the past 16 years, marketing firm Distinctive Assets has put together a wild, over-the-top Oscars gift bag for nominees in the Best Actor and Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, and Best Director categories. The “Everyone Wins” nominee gift bags are handed out, win or lose, to A-listers in the week leading up to the big event, and are always packed with luxurious trips and quirky do-dads.
And 2018 is no different. Inside this year’s swag bag, stars like Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronin, Meryl Streep, Sam Rockwell, Mary J. Blige, Allison Janney, Jordan Peele, and Octavia Spencer will find a week-long Hawaiian escape, a 12-day adventure to Tanzania, and a Greek beachfront vacation.
Those trips sound so luxurious, even Hollywood’s most elite are sure to get excited over the contents of this gift bag.
But what about some of the bag’s more ~unusual~ items? Read on to see what else is awaiting these celebs.
Early access to NeverMissed, a new dating app
The NeverMissed app basically takes Craigslist missed connections and makes them a thing of the past: Strangers who “miss” each other enter in the details of the missed connection, then, if there’s a match, the app connects you. Imagine if you had a missed connection with Daniel Kaluuya?! 😍
The Positive Cube, by Bangarang
The Positive Cube includes 199 cards featuring positive acts and affirmations, so our stars will never feel uninspired.
The Amazing Underarm Patch, by Dandi
With these Dandi patches, our nominees are sure to feel comfortably dry on the red carpet.
Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
Receding gums, be gone! This Oscars gift bag includes a “breakthrough” gum surgery.
A supply of Halo Purely for Pets pet food
This one’s also pretty sweet: As part of the swag bag, Halo will make a 10,000-bowl donation of food to the animal shelter of each celeb’s choice.
A fresh crate of California oranges, from EpiFruit
Plenty of Vitamin C to ward off illness during flu season.
Stylish pepper spray, by PepperFace
Necessary for warding off the unwashed masses, perhaps.
A levitating bluetooth speaker, by Shop Modern Innovations
Because a sedentary bluetooth speaker is so last season.
Happy Oscars season, everyone! May yours be as glamorous as every recipient of the “Everyone Wins” gift bag.
