A-list movie stars are hardly short of cash and extravagant gifts with their megabucks paychecks and endless perks but that doesn’t mean Oscar organizers are going to cheap-out on this years’ swag bags!
While the Academy itself doesn’t dish out out bags, LA based company Distinctive Assets is behind this year’s unofficial swag bag, and it includes a number of mind blowing gifts, including free trips to Tanzania, Hawaii and Greece; and less extravagant presents to take home, like locally-grown oranges, sweets and drinks.
Other gifts include organic vegan lollipops from Delicacies Candy & Confections, Rouge Maple maple syrup, Southern Wicked Lemonade and Quincy Herbals tea, a steel vacuum lunch box, cook book or the wearable forearm water bottle. Then there’s pepper spray for self defence, patches to quell underarm sweat, a course to help you “shrink bad memories,” a children’s book “empowering young girls to love all their unique features” and a box of 199 cards emblazoned with “positive actions and quotes”.
Other intriguing items for 2018 include a “saliva collection kit”, a blood red PETA bath bomb (cruelty-free and vegan of course), “holistic” pet food and an invitation to the pre-launch of the NeverMissed dating app. And a Mexican soda company is also donating to a charity of the star’s choice and Halo’s Purely Pets pet food will donate 10,000 bowls in the nominee’s name to an animal shelter.
