Here's how

In addition to receiving one of the greatest honours of their careers (probably the greatest), Academy Award nominees also receive a ton of public love, adulation and … stuff. Yes, stuff, as in gifts galore from companies, designers etc looking to capitalize on the nominees’ now even more brandable, bankable notoriety.

The best stuff though, arrives the week prior to the ceremony, from a savvy marketing firm, Distinctive Assets (in no way affiliated with the OSCARS® or Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences) best known the world over for masterminding and delivering the swaggiest of swag.

While this season’s pricy luxury bag brimmeth with a panoply of covetable objects, some of the most beloved treats came in the form of glam getaways and escapes.

So if you’re thinking of a pampery, celeb-worthy trip sometime soon, this list’s for you … The pix say it all:
