Lash Fary, the founder of the company Distinctive Assets that puts together the bags, let Forbes in on the $205,000 worth of offerings this year.

Sensation: As the Oscars return after a year of the coronavirus pandemic the award ceremony’s famous goodie bags have remained as lavish as ever
The non-fungible token in Chadwick’s honor is actually a fundraiser to help fight colon cancer which claimed his life last summer when he was only 43.
A grand total of 25 people will get a goodie bag – all the nominees for acting and directing at the Academy Awards.
Each recipient will in fact get his or her own NFT which can be used as a fundraiser for any charity they decide upon.
However because Chadwick – as one of the acting nominees for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – has died his charity has been predetermined.

Although the vacation vouchers have been scaled back this year on account of the coronavirus pandemic they have not gone away entirely.
Lucky goodie bag recipients can spend three nights in the Pater Noster Lighthouse on the Swedish island Hamneskär or four days at the Golden Door spa in California.
Lash plugged the lighthouse, which is now been refashioned as a hotel: ‘It doesn’t get much more socially distant than that.’
Acclaimed: Because Chadwick has died of colon cancer the funds raised from his memorial NFT will go to combat the disease; he is pictured in his swan song Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
Animal lovers will be treated to a pet GPS called Tractive as well as an emergency hammer from PETA that can be used to break animals out of cars if needed.
If the winners want to celebrate and the losers wish to drown their sorrows the goodie bags offer them plenty of opportunity to do so.
Vape cartridges made of 24 carat gold and Trust Me Vodka bottles with 23 carat gold flakes dropped inside are just two of the party favors.
