This Year's Grammy Celebrity Gift Bags Contain Over $20,000 USD Worth of Swag
Noone ever really loses.
Even if they end up coming home from the 2018 Grammy festivities without a trophy to place on their mantles, event openers Kendrick Lamar and U2 will have plenty of expensive, completely free handouts to take advantage of. For this year’s Grammy Awards, the operators at the forefront of this year’s festivities are once again gifting their show’s denizens with plenty of high-cost “swag.”
For this year’s grab bag, the Grammy ceremony’s celebrity attendees will be receiving a collection of luxury gifts curated by Gift Bags by Rachael and Distinctive Assets. The featured “celebrity swag” carries a collective total worth of over $20,000, coming close to last year’s $30,000 USD price-tag. As TIME Money‘s exclusive analysis finds, the package specifically includes items such as a week’s worth of services from a high-end southern California spa, private mixology lessons from some of the United States’s best bartenders, a “full-face skin rejuvenation procedure” from a top registered New York City nurse, a “year’s supply of Healing Saint luminosity Skin serum by Dr. Jane,” nearly $2,000 USD worth of free dental work from Smile Direct Club, VIP airport service and more.
