If you’re like most people, you’ve watched a major annual award show, like the Oscars, the Grammys or the Espys, and dreamed about what it would be like to attend such an illustrious event alongside famed actors, musicians or athletes. There is no doubt that being in the same room with your favorite high-profile celebrities would be the main appeal, but what you might not realize is that there would be much more in store for you than just a few starstruck moments. There is another amazing perk to being invited to one of these A-list events – and it comes in the form of a gift bag.
We’ve all heard that the goodies bags for guests at these heavyweight award shows are impressive, but after examining the specific giveaways that actually go into each of them, we were completely blown away. These are not your average party favors! In order to detail our findings and share them with you, we’ve created an infographic itemizing each of the gift bags you would find at the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, ESPYs, VMAs and Billboards. Here’s a look at the veritable treasures that are handed out at these major annual award ceremonies.
Perhaps a $20,000 in-home horoscope reading is a little over the top (just a smidge) and implying that everyone might need porcelain veneer toothpaste or a laser facial is the slightest bit indelicate, but when combined with luxury vacation packages, designer luggage, jewelry and accessories, a state-of-the-art home spa system and – wait for it – $75 worth of chocolate, I can’t imagine a single person who wouldn’t happily accept these insanely valuable award show gift bags. So, next time you’re watching those shining stars, dressed to the nines and looking like a million bucks, accepting their awards and accolades and you start to feel just the tiniest bit jealous, remember the incredible gift bags they get to bring home as well and go ahead and hate them with the fire of a thousand suns. You win this round, celebrities.
