*As Hollywood’s biggest night approaches on Sunday, March 4, Distinctive Assets has once again indulge and titillate the major Oscar nominees with its annual “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags which have become the most buzzed about swag in history.

The “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags have been independently produced by Distinctive Assets for the past 16 years. They have been delivered to nominees in the Best Actor + Actress, Best Supporting Actor + Actress and Best Director categories. They are not handed out at the ceremony or at a hotel gift suite but rather conveniently delivered to nominees in the week leading up to the show.

With more than a hundred gifts, the “Everyone Wins” Gift Bag is, as always, a blend of fabulous, fun, quirky and indulgent items meant to thrill and pamper those who may have everything money can buy but still savor the simple joy of a gift. While this gift bag does always have an impressive six-figure value, that is never the goal. “A great gift has nothing to do with the retail value,” say Distinctive Assets founder and noted gift expert, Lash Fary. “For years we have been breaking one of the cardinal rules of gift giving by disclosing the price tag. Instead we are trying to start a new tradition by simply celebrating the fun and festive nature of this legendary gift bag.”

This year’s gift bonanza stars the ultimate 12-night Tanzania Adventure Package for Two from International Expeditions. This bucket list journey includes private air transportation once in country, all private meals, spa services, nightly sundowner cocktails, hot air balloon safari with champagne breakfast, private safari guide and vehicle, chef-guided cooking lessons, wild game drives and walking safaris, horseback riding, snorkeling, lodging at Serengeti Migration Camp (one of the “Top 10 Hotels in the World”) and much more! International Expeditions’ mission has long been to inspire guests with the wonders of our natural world…and the winner of this safari can’t help but be enchanted and moved on exquisite excursions offering an intimate look at Tanzania and Zanzibar.
