A 10-day trip to Israel valued at $55,000 is among the gifts that will be offered in the swag bags given to some of this year’s Academy Awards nominees. Distinctive Assets, the company that assembled the bags, put the value on the first-class trip, the Daily Beast reported. In total, the luxurious gifts in each bag are worth $200,000, the report said.
