Oscars Goody Bag Worth £106,000 Includes Plot Of Land In The UK

Only a select few people will be lucky enough to take home an Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards, but even some of those who don't make the cut will leave better off with a gift bag worth £106,000 ($140,000).

Year after year, the Oscars goodie bag continues to put regular party bags to shame. Birthday cake, party poppers and bubbles are always fun in the moment, but there's no denying the fact they pale in comparison to a castle getaway, gold-infused olive oil and an actual plot of land.

This year's awards will mark the 20th anniversary of Distinctive Assets' famed 'Everybody Wins' gift bag, which is handed out to nominees in the categories for Best Actor and Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Actress and Best Director.

Of course, it's only the best for the stars nominated for the awards, so the bag includes the likes of gold-flecked Posh Pretzels, a box of products from skincare brand Byroe, limited-edition Trust Me Vodka bottles, extra virgin olive oil infused with edible gold flakes, Manuka honey and even liposuction treatment.

Though the products are all noteworthy, it's the plot of land in Scotland that has caught many people's attention. The present comes from Highland Titles and allows the recipient to contribute to the establishment of nature reserves, while also awarding them a title of a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe.

The size of each plot has not been revealed, but Highland Titles offers customers the chance to purchase plots of land ranging between 1sqft and 100sqft, with the latter costing £150 ($197). Owners of the plots are also granted 'the right to visit your plot anytime and transfer to future generations', the website explains.

While the Oscar nominees might not quite have the space to build a castle on the land to go with their new titles, the goodie bag does at least also offer them the opportunity to experience such a luxury with an all-inclusive stay at Scotland's Turin Castle, complete with butler service, which Forbes reports is worth about £37,900 ($50,000).

Located in Angus, the castle was built in 1659 and relocated stone-by-stone in 1907 to its current location in 'twenty acres of sweeping lawns with majestic views of the rolling Scottish countryside'.

Nominees who are set to get their hands on the gifts and products this year include Will Smith, Andrew Garfield, Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman and Steven Spielberg. The Academy Awards ceremony takes place tomorrow (28 March).
