Packed with goodies like a $15,000 walking tour of Japan, $5,000 worth of hair removal and cosmetic surgery, designer lollipops, pepper spray guns and a $2,700 procedure that claims to help a woman’s sex drive, this year’s gift bag racks up to twice the value of last year’s giveaway.

A Distinctive Assets spokesperson told Business Insider that companies have become increasingly interested in providing products to the bag, as it has gained attention among celebrities and in the press.



there was a commercial to text to 515151 for a chance to win some of the oscar bags.
