“Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags by Distinctive Assets


As awards season approaches its exciting climax in Tinseltown, Distinctive Assets will once again indulge and titillate the major Oscar® nominees with its annual “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags which have become the most buzzed about swag in history.

The “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags have been independently produced by Distinctive Assets for the past 16 years. They will once again be delivered to nominees in the Best Actor + Actress, Best Supporting Actor + Actress and Best Director categories.  They are NOT handed out at the ceremony or at a hotel gift suite but rather conveniently delivered to nominees in the week leading up to the show.   The “Everyone Wins” Gift Bag is, as always, a blend of fabulous, fun, quirky and indulgent items meant to thrill and pamper those who may have everything money can buy but still savor the simple joy of a gift.  While this gift bag does always have an impressive six-figure value, that is never the goal.  “A great gift has nothing to do with the retail value,” say Distinctive Assets founder and noted gift expert, Lash Fary. “For years we have been breaking one of the cardinal rules of gift giving by disclosing the price tag.  Instead we are trying to start a new tradition by simply celebrating the fun and festive nature of this legendary gift bag.”

This year’s gift bonanza stars the ultimate 12-night Tanzania Adventure Package for Two from International Expeditions, a 7-day Hawaiian escape exactly like nothing else in a luxury ocean-view villa at Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu, a week of total mind/body/spirit renewal at Golden Door, the chance to find (or share) true love using the NeverMissed dating app,  23andMe Health + Ancestry Service, transformational Luminosity Skin Serum and Hair Follicle Stimulant from Healing Saint by Dr. Jane 360, Halo Purely for Pets holistic pet food plus 10,000-bowl animal shelter donation, and a commitment from Jarritos iconic Mexican soda to donate a pallet of their great tasting soft drinks to a charitable event of the nominee’s choice.

Lucky nominees like Timothée Chalamet, Denzel Washington, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronin, Meryl Streep, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Mary J.

“At the end of the day, the movie industry is about allowing viewers to escape reality and enter a fantasy world.  We hope we also do that in some small way for these hard-working nominees who have given us this year’s best performances … helping them relax, indulge and even give back after one of the most intensely hectic weeks of their lives,” added Fary.
