The $275,000 2011 Oscars Swag Bag

One of the best (or worst- depending on you..) things about life is how ‘to the winner go the spoils…’. The job goes to the one who can best display their experience. The bank loans you money only if you can show you really dont need it- etc etc

Well its no different with superstar-caliber movie talent. And these gifts are for the nominees who DIDN’T win- but because companies who cater to high-end clientele or even the masses could never afford the promotion that getting photographed with just one celebrity could bring, gift bags are now big business. And because of the IRS crackdown in 2006 there are now middlemen companies like Distinctive Assests, to handle the gifting for these companies. That’s right- not only are the companies giving away insanely expensive gifts to these rich celebs for free.. they pay to do it. ..and if you’re smart, you would too.

My favorite- easily- would have to be Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic suborbital space science missions. Valued at $200,000 it’s a brilliant move from the billionaire maverick to make some of the first passengers ever on his two ships (named “Enterpise” and “Voyager”) huge american movie stars. Well played…

The 2nd most expensive gift is also a trip. A $16,000 getaway to a luxury resort in the Maldives where you can enjoy treatments in the world’s first underwater spa. There’s a $12,000 trip on a private island in Belize with a private houseman and the option to snorkel with sharks and a germ-shield face mask to use aboard all these plane rides. The company XTI is also offering a $10,000 gift certificate to sterilize the stars’ movie set trailers with a green “nanocoating” product.

On the body-concious side, stars will receive a gift certificate for a one-week boot camp in Southern California to get in shape after this season of endless galas, cocktails and dinner parties. They also get a $850 fitness personal training package and Slimware portion-control plates.

On the beauty side, there’s an uber-expensive $325 skin regeneration serum not even in stores yet. “To avoid controversy, this cream is made of adult stem cells, not baby’s!”, specifies Lash Fary, the founder of Distinctive Assets. It’s supposed to make your skin look like a baby’s though. What’s it called ? “StemSational”. LOL!!!
