My 4 Favorite Items in the $25K Gift Bag Emma Stone and Other Oscar Nominees Are Receiving

February 26, 2017

It took me a minute to assemble this post—mainly because I’ve been busy rummaging through my very own version of the gift bag I’m going to tell you about below.

For the 11th consecutive year, famed celebrity gifting brand Madison & Mulholland assembled a bag fit for a queen (or an A-list actress). Just in time for Hollywood’s biggest night, the latest selection of swag (valued at $25K!) is going to 2017 Oscar nominees, including Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman.

As I mentioned above, I received a bag of my own. Granted, mine was a modified version (aka no fancy vacation for me!), but certainly plenty to get me excited. So, what are the top coveted items that these stars get to enjoy (regardless of tonight’s awards outcome)? Scroll below for my four favorite items in the 2017 Awards Season Gift Bag (and find out how and where you can score some of these items yourself!).

1. Baron’s Cove Sag Harbor Stay: Celeb recipients receive a luxurious, three-night stay in a loft suite in the Hamptons with breakfast for two each morning, a $500 dining credit, two 90-minute massages, yoga daily for two and wine tasting for two at Wolffer Estate Vineyard (when in season).

2. OM Shanti Clothing + Celsius Energy Drink: The brightly colored OM Shanti leggings were the first package I ripped open in my gift bag. I love leggings, and this line of them is the ultimate. They fit perfectly and I’m so excited to wear them. The perfect accompaniment to these incredible yoga wears is absolute favorite all-natural energy drink, Celsius. I was stoked to see this in the bag as well. I drink it regularly before a yoga session or any workout, for that matter.

3. One Two Cosmetics Set: I’ll be completely honest, I have naturally long eyelashes (#blessed), but one of my favorite thing about swag bags in general is discovering brand new products. And the One Two Cosmetics set is unlike anything I’d ever seen! These are, brace yourself, magnetic eyelashes! Named “Best of Beauty Breakthrough” by Allure in 2016, this is something you really have to see to believe. Despite the length of my own lashes, I cannot wait to try these on in Vegas next weekend. Too good to be true?

4. Julia Knight Collection: I just moved into a new apartment, so Julia Knight’s Eclipse collection would be the perfect addition to my dish sets. Celebrities gifted the bag received a set of nesting bowls, trays and a spreading knife. Each piece handmade of sand cast aluminum with a blend of enamel infused with crushed mother of pearl.

But the goodies don’t stop here! Some of the many other contents include Caterina jewelry, gourmet macaroons by FreshBakedNY’s Michelle’s MaccsThe Olive Fruit‘s Kiklos Greek extra virgin olive oil, and a “No Paparazzi”-themed Italian leather luxe designer handbag by Isabella Hearst New York.

Now, the fun part (for you!). This year, for the first time ever, consumers will be able to purchase some of the bag’s items at its Pop-Up Shop at Hollywood & Highland, from now thru March 14.

Take a Sneak Peek Into the $20,000 Swag Bag That Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence & More Received to Top Off Awards Season!

MM Final TOUCHUPPrepare to be green with envy, because the mounds of goodies given to some of your favorite Academy Awards nominees and presenters, courtesy of Madison & Mulholland gifting, is worth $20,000 (yes, you read that correctly)!

Skyelyfe got its hands on one of these insane (and understandably heavy) bags, which includes everything from gift cards and travel equipment, to jewelry, pillows, chocolate and more.

Although not the official gift bag of the Oscars (it’s crazy to think this is just a tip of the iceberg when it comes to these stars being showered with swag), some Academy favorites – including Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Diane Lane, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Rachel McAdams, Rooney Mara, Scarlett Johansson and Amy Schumer – are each recipients of these lavish luxuries.

Should you want to score one of your own, a bag is being auctioned off on eBay to raise money for the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for women’s cancer research.
