RUTHERFORD, NJ At the upcoming 2016 Academy Awards only a select few will take home the coveted golden statue, but everyone wins thanks to the legendary gift bags for nominees in the Best Actor + Actress, Best Supporting Actor + Actress and Best Director categories. Valued in excess of $200,000, this year’s Hollywood swag is hotter than ever with extravagant items and experiences, including a special gift from Steamist.

Steamist’s contribution of a plush luxury robe and $5,000 gift certificate for a Total Sense Home Spa System – a customizable collection of spa amenities for the shower – will help to cheer up the non-winning nominees. So regardless of whose name is read on February 28, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Mark Ruffalo, Sylvester Stallone and Rachel McAdams will have a lot to look forward to the day after the Oscars.

Going beyond the relaxation and rejuvenation of steam, the system elevates the user experience with touchscreen in-shower controls with pre-programmed user profiles and a mySteamist mobile application that activates the system from a smartphone or tablet. Designed to transform the master bath into a relaxing retreat, the system also includes customizable spa features such as AromaSense essential oils, ChromaSense mood lighting and AudioSense which plays music from any Bluetooth-enabled device.

The latest addition to the Total Sense Home Spa System is the new ShowerSense option, which allows the homeowner to use a single control for their customized steam settings as well as shower temperature and water pressure for up to three outlets, such as a standard showerhead, rain shower, handheld or body spray. This new offering is ideal for those seeking a clean design in their bathrooms and fewer visible components in the shower.

The 88th Academy Awards will be held on February 28, 2016. This Gift Bag is not affiliated with the Oscars or the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences; the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences does not award, sponsor, endorse or provide these gift bags.
