Lu Parker Takes Us Inside an Oscar Gifting Suite

The Flying Lizards said it best — “The best things in life are free.” Now, celebrities and Hollywood elite are taking note at this Oscar gifting suite.

Twins Mark and Matt Harris brought the whole thing to life.

“We’ve been here since 7 o’clock this morning,” they said on Monday. “We’ve got some great talent coming through the lounge, we’ve got some great brands here.”

“She thought I was going to give it to my grandchild, but oh no, I’m keeping this for myself,” actor Ernie Hudson joked, picking up some Thermal-Aid swag.

Other offerings included an instant sunless tan from PretendTAN — a necessity on the red carpet.

Hitting the red carpet also means the stars need a great dress, maybe some lingerie, and of course the juice — mixing in some extra energy shots.

And how about a shower in a pack for celebrities? Paper Shower was on hand with their wet and dry pack body wipes.

There was also bourbon filled candy and, for all the adrenaline junkies, a chance to jet up into the air via jet pack from Jetlev.

Celebs were going green at the gifting suite, and getting inspired too.

“It’s all about Tata Harper,” a spokeswoman said. “I’ll spray it for you right now… You just kind of feel like you’re in a floral garden!”

The Harris twins describe the event as a “win-win-win.”

“We love doing it, the celebrities love getting gifted and the clients love meeting the celebrities and getting their products into the hands of the celebrities.”
