This Year’s $200K Unofficial Oscars Swag Bag Includes Vampire Breast Lift, Trip To Israel, Pricey Toiletries

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — During Oscars’ night, nominees in five major categories will go home as winners regardless of whether they “win” the much-coveted honor.

That’s because each will be given a gift bag by Distinctive Assets valued at more than $200,000, according to Forbes.com.

The marketing and brand placement company’s founder, Lash Fary, has put together the bags for many years.

The most expensive item in this year’s bag is a 10-day trip to Israel valued at $55,000, which includes airfare and room and board at (of course) five-star hotels.

Each year, the nominees up for best actor/actress, best supporting actor/actress, and best director receive these bags as does the show’s host.

Other items inside the bag include a 15-day tour to Japan valued at $54,000; skin care by Lizora valued at $31,200; and a fitness package by Fit Club TV.

The gift bag offers a wide-range of other items including a vampire breast lift valued at $1,900; a three-day visit to a spa in San Marcos for $4,800; more than $300 worth of clothing by Belldini; hair care products like hairstyling tools; and electronic gadgets, like a vaporizer.

Stars will also be gifted with vodka and customized M&M’s, which are valued at $300.

All of the products in the bags have been donated by businesses with the hope that the celebrities ultimately act as unofficial brand ambassadors.

This year’s bag far exceeds last year’s, which was valued at $160,000.

The Oscars will air Feb. 28.
