Lu Parker reports.

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.”

    It was a great party for brands of all kinds. Lu Parker looks certainly healthy, so she didn't stop at the Life Extension ( table to speak with media doctor Dr. Michael Smith and get her dose of free vitamins. All the celebs did…William Shatner, Ernie Hudson, Sofia Milos and others.

      Give the free vitamins to the sick and homeless. I don't watch the Oscar's because of this, these folks can buy all that BS why do they get it free. Charge the poor give free stuff to the rich now that makes a lot of sense.

      Your attempt to sneak in a product placement in the guise of a fake comment is pathetic. Tell me, what's it like to wake up and not contribute a damn thing to this world? Must be horrible. Give your sh!tty vitamins to the poor

    How is this NEWS… I could care less about celebrities and ALL the endless supply of FREE stuff they get for doing NOTHING… They should give the general public some free stuff and stop wasting it on the celeb's cause they don't buy anything, EVERYTHING is given to them FREE, it's the regular people who buy the products. DUMB Celebrities are the ones who drive the prices up on products so that regular people who work hard can't ever afford them. STOP worshiping these people! They are just greedy money grubbing slugs.

      Relax kiddo, the reason they get it for free is because product placement sells more products because so many people are obsessed with celebrities and try to emulate them. It's not the manufacturer's fault that the world works like this, it's the shallow mindless celebrity crazed morons' fault.
