Here's What's In The Oscar Swag Bag

Just once, I'd like to get one of those swag bags that the actors get. Just once.

We've all heard the stories about how they get a bunch of free stuff just for being nominated (or sometimes, just for attending) and this year is no differnet.

At this year's Academy Awards, the nominees will get a swag bag with more than $100,000 worth of items.

Here's what's in it...

A 12-Night Trip to Zanzibar and Tanzania

The luxurious trip for two appears to be tailor-made for high-profile actors, with private meals and a private safari guide throughout the journey, according to Distinctive Assets. The nominees and their guests will also be able to go horseback riding, snorkeling, take walking safaris, take chef-guided cooking lessons, and more. Similar trips from International Expeditions cost upwards of $11,300 per person.

A Week’s Worth of Spa Treatments

Among the many spa treatments at Golden Door, just one 90-minute deep-tissue massage is $245. And with a week’s worth of spa treatments, that value could skyrocket to more than $1,000.

23andMe DNA Testing Kit

The ancestry report kit costs $99, while the ancestry report and health features package costs $199.

A Six-Night Trip in Hawaii

A six-night stay at the Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu in Hawaii in a one-bedroom luxury villa would cost around $500 per night, totaling to $3,000 for a six-night trip.

Ten Personal Training Sessions

Nominees also get 10 personal training sessions with celebrity personal trainer Alexis Seletzky. According to Women’s Health, depending on the trainer, personal training sessions could cost up to $500 per hour. (Seletzky did not respond immediately to a request for comment from MONEY.)

A Stay at a Luxurious Greek Resort

One night at Avaton Luxury Villas Resort in Halkidiki, Greece, costs more than $460 per night.

Color-Changing Lipstick

The color-changing lipstick, sold by New Mexico-based make-up brand Blush & Whimsey, sells for $22.

Other highlights:

• Chocolatines’ chocolate “Chocouture Jewlery Box,” worth $86

• Hundreds of dollars worth of Le Cèline false eyelashes

• My Magic Mud toothpaste, worth $20

• Access to a new dating app called “NeverMissed” before it launches

Okay, that's a lot of cool stuff and I can really use those false eyelashes. Seriously though, I think those trips sound awesome!

Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars this weekend. He talked a little about what we can expect...
