The 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 5 and per usual, you can expect it to be plenty entertaining. The show will again be hosted by Trevor Noah and feature presenters like Olivia Rodrigo, Shania Twain, Cardi B and even First Lady Jill Biden. Although, you know you’re probably going to tune in for the major performances from artists like Bad Bunny, Lizzo and Sam Smith. While you’ll see them all on stage, what you won’t see is the huge gift lounge presenters and performers will get to visit, and the extravagant gift bags they’ll receive behind the scenes.

LA-based entertainment marketing company Distinctive Assets has a long-standing partnership with the Recording Academy in producing the one and only official GRAMMYs Gift Lounge, as well as Presenter and Performer Gift Bags. It’s also the same company behind the Oscar’s six-figure swag bags.

The Gift Lounge, hosted by Tom’s Watch Bar at L.A. Live and sponsored by ReFa and Miage Skincare, is where presenters and performers can rack up swag like the Bugaboo Fox 3 luxury stroller, Havaianas sandals, a Marei1998 faux fur handbag and Dog-E, a robot dog from WowWee.

GRAMMYs presenters and performers will also receive legendary gift bags with expensive services like the Art Lipo Celebrity Arms Sculpting procedure by Dr. Thomas Su in Tampa, Fla., up to $10,000 of treatments at rejuvenation procedures with Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich in New York City, and a tasting experience at Kokomo in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Additionally, according to a press release, the bag includes products by brands that embrace diversity, inclusion and philanthropy in the beautyfood and entertainment categories. (You can see the full list here.)
