In addition to receiving priority access to exclusive hot spots and being able to afford luxury pampering on a weekly basis, one of the coolest perks about being a celebrity are the freebies. Given that it's officially awards season and the Oscars are this weekend, Hollywood A-listers are firmly planted in LA this week, allowing professional gifting companies to easily track down their famous giftee of choice. Madison & Mulholland is one of said organizations, and they gave us a peek inside the massive bag they're delivering to big-name actresses today.
The company tells us that recipients include Amy Schumer, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Brie Larson (check out her red carpet style evolution here), Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts, Melissa McCarthy, Rooney Mara, and Scarlett Johansson. (So, pretty much our dream girl squad.) The gift bag, which is valued at more than $22,000, includes a wide, semi-random range of treats, from a trip to the stunning Antigua island in the Caribbean to Lion Brand Yarn knitting lessons.
Additional highlights: an AstrologyZone calendar from famed astrologer Susan Miller; $1,200 worth of Sea Radiance vegan skincare and a gift card to visit its founder, NYC dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman; a custom handbag by Laudi Vidni, vintage-inspired sunglasses from Retrospecs & Co.; a massive pool noodle by The Original Designer Noodle; a Vinrella umbrella.
