Awards season in LA isn't just about swanky red carpet parties: it's also when stars across the alphabet get showered with attention and free swag, regardless of whether they're winners or losers (or nominees, presenters, or ceremony attendees). In honor of this Sunday's 67th Emmy Awards (5pm PT on Fox), we shamelessly walked a day in celebrities's shoes and hit up the gift lounge circuit.

We stopped by Extra and On3's first-ever Weekend of Lounge at the London Hotel and Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge at the Sunset Marquis for a taste of all the pricey, cool, and random merch being thrown at stars's faces. For brands both big-name and small, these giveaway parties are chance to score a quickie celeb endorsement—whether their products are little luxuries like hi-tech transportation and skincare, essentials like mattresses and toilet paper, or closet additions like LA-made denim to energy-infused gems.

In the above gallery, check out just some of the goods that the A to Z-listers are bringing home this weekend.
