For the past 22 years, all 20 nominees of the Academy Awards aka Oscars have been getting an 'Everybody Wins' gift bag – a coveted, high-valued hamper with numerous gifts. This year too, the bag, valued at 180,000 dollars, has many things from a portable schwank grill, a luxury bag from Elboque, Miage's ultra-luxury skin products, a wellness retreat and more. But the priciest of it is a three-day night stay at a chalet aka a wooden house in Switzerland. The Chalet Zermatt Peak in Zermatt, Switzerland perched above a village, is known to have stunning views overlooking the region, high-end amenities and altogether a memorable Alpine experience.

Interestingly, it is the reigning winner of the 'Best Ski Chalet' award from the World's Ski Awards. The invitation in the bag costs around 50,000 dollars and the celebs who redeem it can be able to use the entire chalet for themselves and nine guests! The six-floor chalet, which has windows from floor to ceiling, also has a spa, in-house massage therapists, a celestial observatory roof, chauffeured cars round the clock, multi-course dinners by gourmet chefs and access to fully-stocked wine cellars.

That's not all. The guests will also get another invite for a seven-day stay at Golden Door, a luxury spa with customised Japanese programmes at Southern California. Its service is also a high-value retreat. Interestingly, the gifts will only have tax penalties if the guests redeem them. Regardless, apparently, only a few take these trips, as a lot of stars are busy and probably can afford better resorts or destinations.
