Did you know the Grammys have a “Gift Lounge” for VIP attendees? Because they do. That’s singer Bebe Rexha at one of the booths in the Gift Lounge at this year’s Grammys in the photo above. That’s right, there is a whole room set up just for celebrities to stroll around and pick up a bunch of expensive stuff for free. Amazing, right?

You know what else is amazing? The gift bag worth over $30,000 that VIPs at the Grammys receive for just showing up… to an awards show.

Inside the bag this year, according to The Daily Mail, were a free week of services at a spa worth $8,850, vouchers for designer jewelry, gift cards for gourmet restaurants, private mixology classes worth $5,100, VIP airport services worth $1,500, as well as numerous health and beauty products. Everything a rich, famous person would need… for free.

According to Money, the amount of free stuff these VIPs received was so heavy that this year the Grammys had to use a duffel bag to hold it all.

“It is an honor for any artist to be asked to be part of music’s biggest night, and that honor is no less significant for Grammy partners like us,” Distinctive Assets’ founder, Lash Fary, said in a statement. “We are so proud to help celebrate sixty amazing years of Grammy magic with our signature backstage gift lounge.”
