This Infographic Of The Most Expensive Award Show Gift Bags Will Make Your Jaw Drop
The glamorous lives of celebrities have been widely recognized and buzzed about for decades, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. With constant attention always on the famous characters, it’s tradition for annual award shows like the Grammys, Oscars, and ESPY’s to reward actors, musicians, athletes, and others of the sort for all of their dedication and hard work.
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably daydreamed about what it would be like to attend such a glamorous event, being under the same roof in an ocean of celebs. It’s obvious that this would be the main appeal, however what many don’t realize is the other added perks of being invited to such an elite gathering. Our friends over at Promotions Now (who we can also thank for the nifty music festival map of the U.S.) looked further into what comes along with an elite award show invitation, unveiling other amazing perks in the form of a gift bag.
It’s been known that goodie bags handed off to attendees at these A-list events are impressive but after digging deeper, Promotions Now found out exactly what goes into these gift bags – and the results will blow your mind. They’ve come up with yet another comprehensive and detailed illustration of exactly what goes into the award show bundles one would find at the Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, ESPY’s, VMA’s, and Billboards… and they are far from your average party favors.
With values in gifts adding up to over $167,500 per-gift bag (good looks, Oscars), major gifts in each package range from personal home spa systems, to a luxury villa stay in Bali, to $150 worth of stationary. Have a look for yourself below:
By the statistics shown in Promotion’s Now illustration, gift bags handed off at the Oscars take the ultimate lead when it comes to most valuable and luxurious contents. The complimentary award show bundle has gifts such as a $20,000 in-home horoscope reading (that’s a horoscope reading worth more than my car) to a $28,000 piece of custom designed furniture.
Other gifts supplied by these award shows include a $447 membership to SoCal Hot Yoga Studio (VMA’s), a $2,800/night four-night stay in New Zealand (Emmy’s), a $780 sailing lesson for two (ESPY’s), and of course, the completely necessary $210 worth of Porcelain Veneer Toothpaste courtesy of the Grammy’s to make sure those celebrities pearly whites are up-to-par.
The added bonus perks at award ceremonies clearly goes above and beyond in terms of complimentary gifts, making it pretty much impossible to leave the show dissatisfied.
“Oh, you didn’t make the cut for best picture of the year? This $625/night stay in Costa Rica should make up for it.”
“Leaving the show empty handed? No worries, here’s $20,000 worth of Audi rentals for a year. Thanks for showing up. “
Those quotes were obviously rhetorical, but you get the point. Imagine the feeling of actually winning an award and having these gifts in addition at the end of the night? I’d probably go to bed happy. And by happy I mean happy for the remainder of my existence.
So, next time you’re feeling envious of the glamorous celebrities lighting up the box of your television, think of the thousands of dollars worth of gifts they are now in possession of and sit on that thought. Let it sink in for a minute. Feeling better? Not really? Me either.
Congratulations, celebrities, you win.
