Isn’t it nice that the Emmy Awards hand out these massive gift bags to struggling TV stars battling to make ends meet?
Jolling, but if you did manage to get your hands on one of the estimated $50 000 gift bags (R665 000) then you were leaving pretty happy with life.
They’re not for everyone, because only nominees and presenters entering the official Giving Suite could take one home, and recipients are required to report the fair market value of the merchandise on their federal income tax return.
Enough with the small talk – let’s look inside the bag with the help of Forbes:
A three-night, all-inclusive “wellness stay” for two at Canyon Ranch
Guests can stay at the Tucson, Arizona, or Lenox, Massachusetts, location. This can run anywhere from approximately $5,400 for a Deluxe King at the Lenox location to a whopping $21,000 “Casa Grande” package at the Tucson resort. In my humble, non-famous opinion, this is the best item of the bunch.
Ferrari Trento wine
Founded in 1902 by Giulio Ferrari in Trento, it is Italy’s leading luxury sparkling wine. The Lunelli family has been running it since 1952 keeping Giulio Ferrari’s dream alive without ever compromising on quality. The Trentino region is cultivated with passion and respect thanks to sustainable mountain agriculture.
Meh – we’ll stick with the Chocolate Block, if that’s alright by you.
Infinity Membership and free five-day stay with Exclusive Traveler Club
You know it’s exclusive if it has the word in the name. For what it’s worth, the Better Business Bureau gives Exclusive Traveler Club an F rating.
Benjamin Steakhouse Prime gift certificate
The cheapest steak at Benjamin Steakhouse Prime, the New York Sirloin, costs $53.95. The Midtown East location currently has a 4.4 rating by Zagat.
A silk robe from Xiu Niang Silk and two-night stay at the Hyatt Regency Suzhou
A king suite at the Hyatt in the “Venice of the East” will run you approximately $300 a night.
Flow Haircare products
Items include the instantINTENSITY 30-Second Treatment. If it lives up to its promise, it would certainly cut down on red carpet prep time.
A very fancy luggage brand which has a range of beautiful suitcases and backpacks to choose from.
IZUMIO Hydrogen-Infused Water
Ever wanted more hydrogen in your water? Yeah, me neither. Oddly, you cannot buy IZUMIO water unless you are a member of the “Naturally Plus” club and be sponsored by a current member.
Something us Capetonians could use, although it sounds a little cult-like.
These boots are better-suited for construction work than film premieres.
Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty Daylight Curfew Sweater
If you see celebrities rocking this limited edition sweater after the Emmys, now you know why.
There you go, something for the stoners out there.
