The 64th Annual Grammy Awards aired from Las Vegas, Nev. on Sunday, April 3, and major winners included Silk Sonic and Jon Batiste. However, the rest of the nominees didn’t exactly go home empty-handed. In fact, artists like Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Chris Stapleton and BTS received some pretty expensive gift bags.
Distinctive Assets, an LA-based entertainment marketing company, 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 the same company behind the Oscar’s six-figure swag bags.)
The Gift Lounge, hosted by Topgolf Las Vegas and sponsored by Miage Skincare and M Entertainment Works (MEW), stayed open for three days during rehearsals. Here, presenters and performers could rack up extra swag and cool experiences like seeing blues legend Robert Johnson revived as a performing avatar, snag a four-rose jewelry box from Rose Box NYC and take home Miage Skincare’s new waterless micro-molecule products.
Additionally, Grammys presenters and performers were given 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 Restaurant in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Plus, according to a press release, the bag includes products by brands that embrace diversity, inclusion and philanthropy in the beauty, food and entertainment categories. (You can see the full list here.)
Take a look below at seven top items from the gift bags that you may want to purchase (and can afford) for yourself. From delicious popcorn to salad-inspired skincare, you can feel like a Grammy nominee at home.
1. Opopop Pop Cups Discovery Kit, $34.99
If you love popcorn, you need to check out Opopop, the world’s first flavor-wrapped popcorn kernels. Essentially, flavors like Fancy Butter, Maui Heat, Cinnalicious and Vanilla Cake Pop cover each kernel. Simply pour the kernels into the brand’s microwave popper and try it yourself!
Musicians’ gift bags included a year’s supply of Oxygenetix, an award-winning breathable makeup foundation with a celebrity cult following. It’s super breathable and soothing, thanks to its aloe vera base.
3. Shinery Radiance Jewelry Wash, $28
Shinery’s Radiance Jewelry Wash is actually a plant-based hand soap that also cleans your jewelry. It removes dirt, oil, lotions and beauty product buildup to leave your jewelry sparkling clean and your hands soft and moisturized. Leave your rings and bracelets on, lather up about three pumps of the wash, then rinse, pat dry and let it shine.
4. Casper Snoozewear Blanket Robe, $169
Casper’s puffy, duvet-like robe is so soft, it feels like you never got out of bed. Wear it on the sofa while you watch TV, at your desk as you work from home and wherever else you crave more comfort.
Karma Nuts’ cashew snack packs are all non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free, and they ship nationwide. Celebrity recipients received a variety pack of four best-selling flavors — Sea Salt, Cocoa Dusted, Golden Turmeric and Cinnamon — and you can try them all, plus the Peri Peri and Toasted Coconut flavors, in this six-pack.
You can use this tinted sunscreen as your everyday moisturizer, anti-aging cream, sun protection and sheer foundation. It contains SPF 30 and is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes. Plus, it’s available in four reef-safe shades.
7. BYROE Ultimate Best Sellers Set, $170
BYROE utilizes the same nutritious ingredients you’d use to make a salad in its skin care to hydrate and brighten skin. Celebs received the brand’s best-selling Bitter Green Essence Toner, Fig Renewal Oil and Tofu Gel Cream — and you can get them all in this limited-edition set that’s actually worth $252.
