Distinctive Assets "Everyone Wins" Nominee Gift Bag
Written by Contributor

Distinctive Assets is awarding all the major Oscar® nominees with their annual “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags – which have become the most buzzed about swag in history – by the man, who basically created swag gifting! The “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags have been independently produced by Distinctive Assets for nearly two decades.

Lucky recepients in the Best Actor + Actress, Best Supporting Actor + Actress and Best Director categories will receive these grand gift bags which are conveniently delivered to nominees in the week leading up to the show. The “Everyone Wins” Gift Bag is legendary! As always, it’s a blend of fabulous, fun, quirky, useful and indulgent items meant to thrill and pamper. Yes, they may have everything money can buy, but they still savor the simple joy of a gift.  To quote Samuel L. Jackson (when he appeared on the Ellen show post-Oscars last year), “The best thing about being famous is the free stuff.”

This year’s gift bonanza starring:
International Expeditions who gifted luxury small-ship adventure (choice of Amazon, Galapagos, Iceland or Costa Rica-Panama voyages). Nominees can relax, paparazzi-free and recharge themselves in the world’s wildest regions on their choice of luxury small-ship adventures with International Expeditions. The nominee and a guest can choose 1 of 4 options – an adventure to Iceland, the Galapagos, the Amazon or Costa Rica & Panama. In addition to getting nose-to-nose with Galapagos sea lions or paddling along a peaceful Amazon creek, nominees will be spoiled with spa treatments, private chef-led Latin cooking lessons, and even secret celeb extensions in places like Quito or Lima! Depending on the trip they choose, the value ranges from $15,000-$20,000 per person. www.ietravel.com
