— -- Celebrities are preparing speeches and planning outfits ahead of Hollywood's biggest night, but even though not everyone will take home a coveted golden statue, the major nominees will take home a swag bag filled with everything from destination getaways to luxury beauty products.

For the last 16 years, Distinctive Assets, an independent marketing company that is not affiliated or sanctioned by the academy, has delivered its annual "Everyone Wins" nominee gift bags to nominees in the top five categories (best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress and best director.)

This year's bag includes a 12-night trip to Tanzania from International Expeditions, a seven-day Hawaiian escape in an oceanfront villa at Koloa Landing Resort, a 23andMe health and ancestry service, a diamond necklace, a levitating Bluetooth speaker, collagen and golden eye mask treatments, and much more.

Despite all the indulgent swag, Distinctive Assets said the bag goes beyond the six-figure value.

"A great gift has nothing to do with the retail value," Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary said in a statement. "For years we have been breaking one of the cardinal rules of gift giving by disclosing the price tag. Instead, we are trying to start a new tradition by simply celebrating the fun and festive nature of this legendary gift bag."

The "Everyone Wins" nominee gift bags are not affiliated in any way with the Oscars or the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
