Awards show goody bags are notoriously outrageous. They include absurdly expensive gifts that can’t possibly be universal enough to apply to every single guest, presenter, and celeb that attends the show. Still, they persist.
With confirmed guests and presenters including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Future, and even the favorites from the U.S. Olympic Team, MTV had the daunting task of creating a diverse swag bag.
Let’s see how it did:
Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones will keep out all sounds, except for your music.
Because every fancy person needs monogrammed stationery.
Crush by Rihanna’s woody notes with red fruits and pink musks make the perfect feminine scent – we bet she’ll wear it the night of the show!
This can be unisex, we suppose.
The perfect tailored suit for the next red carpet appearance.
Guests will receive a certificate for a complimentary two night stay in one of the deluxe accommodations at the JW Marriott Essex House New York, inclusive of JW Executive Lounge access with a daily breakfast buffet and evening hors d’oeuvres.
Yet another unisex item!
Guests will receive a certificate for a one-night stay plus a 60-minute spa treatment.
