Even Emmy nominees who lose are still going to win big, at least when it comes to free swag. This year's gift bags are worth $50,000, according to CNNMoney. It's one of life's injustices that the rich and famous get gifted with exotic vacations, expensive handbags and other luxury goods, but it's still fun to take a peek inside their goody bag. Here's what Hollywood's stars are taking home, according to CNNMoney.
Celebrities get more vacation time than the average person, so they'll be able to put a $10,000 trip to Bali to good use. The five-night stay in this exotic locale is complete with luxe accommodations and delicious meals. And because one beach getaway just isn't enough for celebs, the swag bag also includes a $2,000 vacation to Cancun and a $4,000 trip to Aspen, Colorado.
There's a lot of pressure for Hollywood's A-listers to look their best, so the $700 gym membership to David Barton Gym is sure to come in handy, which gives each Emmy guest six months free. And because getting a good night's sleep is also part of looking and feeling your best, they'll benefit from the $3,000 queen-size mattress from Maxim Mattress.
Plenty of beauty products are included as well,by such brands including SpaRitual, MicaBeauty, Radical Skincare, and Pave Pedicure, according to PR Newsire. This is just a sampling of the many, many products each celebrity will score.
Many brands willingly gift celebrities their products with the hopes that they will rave about them publicly, therefore scoring new consumers. Because the gift bags include such expensive items, celebrities are required to report the overall cost to the government and pay taxes on their new gifts.
