The Academy Awards, scheduled to take place on March 13, will include a special taste all the way from Saudi Arabia in the gift bags. These gift bags will be given to 26 acting and directing nominees. According to Arab News, the luxury Saudi date brand ‘Bateel’ will be the one providing this flavor.
The gift set is a component of the well-known “Everyone Wins” nominee gift bag, which is given to a select group of Oscar-nominated actors and directors in honor of their contributions to Hollywood and the film industry.
The Los Angeles-based entertainment marketing, firm Distinctive Assets will put together this gift bag, set to include roughly 60 items with a focus on wellness products. Also, the bag will feature a three-night stay in Ottawa, a three-night stay for eight people on a volcanic Italian island, silk pillowcases, an executive hair restoration consultation with a doctor in Florida, and Japanese milk bread.
Lash Fary, Distinctive Assets founder told Arab News that “Bateel has taken an ancient fruit, the date, and transformed it into a modern delicacy. These are nutritious, they’re delicious and the packaging is so exquisite.”
