Admiration, adulation, and accolades are all great, but it’s the Oscars 2023 gift bag worth $120,000 that’s truly mouthwatering! The god of all gift bags features some tantalizing inclusions like an escapade to an Italian volcanic island, liposuction, facelifts, and much more! The 2023 Oscars gift bag is gifted to award nominees (when being nominated is indeed as good as winning), and 26 celebrities Brendan Gleeson, Colin Farrell, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and Steven Spielberg will receive the bag of wellness-focused luxuries. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside the bag-
Lavish trips to sequestered locales-
The loss of the coveted golden statuette is made up for with a $40,000 trip to the Lifestyle, a Canadian private estate. Add another $9,000 trip to a restored lighthouse off the picturesque coast of Italy. These exotic locations will surely steal the sulk out of any system. And this is only the tip of the iceberg, aka the gift bag that includes a whopping 60 items.
Beauty treatments for talented, beautiful people-
Most don’t need it; Still, the Oscar gift bag includes $10,000 worth of aesthetic treatments from Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich on the Upper East Side of New York. The goodie bag also features $10,000 worth of sculpting sessions with Dr. Thomas Su, and there is no reason not to guzzle the entire selection of chocolates (it comes with a video message in the box). “[The nominees] can afford to go wherever they want,” Lash Fary, the founder of Distinctive Assets, said to Forbes. “It’s not about the fact that this is free. It’s about the fact that we’ve found a unique place that has built-in privacy for a celebrity.” Lash added, ‘We also have Dr. Bauman, who does hair restoration, so we’re not forgetting about the dudes. There are $8,000 worth of hair restoration treatments in there.”
Some gifts are too large to fit in a bag-
Nominees will receive an actual plot of land in Australia (size and location unknown). “We have something called Pieces of Australia, which is basically the gift of a little plot of land in Australia, and all the money raised goes to land conservation efforts there,” explained Lash.
An assortment of items makes the Oscar gift bag the epitome of luxury gifting-
The goodie bag also contains NaturGeeks functional wellness “immunity boost” and C60 Purple Power edible massage oil, products from the luxury skincare line Miage, and an 18-karat gold bracelet. Some surprisingly humble items in the legendary gift bag include $18 Ginza Nishikawa milk bread, organic dates, edible massage oil, and a pack of Clif Thins.
Sounds supremely lavish, right? Ironically, the 2023 Oscar gift bag worth $126,000 isn’t the most expensive yet. That title is claimed by the 2020 gift bag, which had a total value of $225,000.
