Oscars 2013 Gift Bags: A $5,000 Face-Lift Coupon! Windex! Condoms!
Because it isn’t really "an honor just to be nominated," Oscar nominees also get gift bags with bizarre items inside. According to The Hollywood Reporter, PR firm Distinctive Assets has compiled the “Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag” for the past 11 years. The bags can be worth an estimated $45,000, and this year’s “swag bags” reportedly include an eclectic mix of items such as...
• A trip to Australia • A $5,000 face-lift gift certificate • The self-help book Take 2: Your Guide to Happy Endings and New Beginnings by Leeza Gibbons • Portion-Control Dinnerware by Slimware ($59) • Hair ties that double as bracelets ($80) • The Ultimate Fuzz Remover ($19.99) • A bottle of Windex ($3.99) • A six-pack of Naked Brand condoms • A bottle of high-end maple syrup by Rouge Maple Gourmet Products ($120)
Awesome. Best Actress nominees Quvenzhane Wallis, age 9, and Emmanuelle Riva, 85, will really appreciate those condoms.
What’s the weirdest item on the list, to you? The condoms? The Windex? The idea that a $120 bottle of maple syrup even exists? We’ll take the trip to Oz, though, if anyone wants to share that one.
