The 58th annual Grammys honoring the best in music took place Monday, February 15, 2016. There were lots of winners both at the actual awards show and at the many luxurious gifting suites held around town throughout the Grammy weekend in celebration of the big event.
My favorite and possibly everyone’s favorite gifting suite was The Official Gift Lounge for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, brought to the celebs by Los Angeles marketing company, Distinctive Assets. Musicians and other celebrities including Johnny Depp, Zendaya, LL Cool J, Nash Overstreet, Holly Robinson Peete, Ryan Cabrera, Andra Day, and Ally Brooke, just to name a few, came by the gifting lounge which was situated right near Staples Center where the Awards were being held.
So, what goodies did the celebs walk away with at The Official Gift Lounge for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards? Here are just a few of my favorite items:
This year’s gift lounge was presented by TOOLS BY GINA and featured pure infrared professional blow dryers and flat irons from hair expert Gina Rivera. Gina hit the ball out of the park with her stylish and effective tools, wowing all of the guests with live demonstrations of her items at work. Gina’s Phoenix blow dryer has an advanced infrared blow technology with ceramic coating for superior conditioning and shine. The professional hair dryer defends hair from heat damage and infuses hair with volume bounce and shine as it dries.
Second on my list of faves was the women’s Martine down jackets by Trespass. Martine is an ultra-lightweight women’s down jacket, which can be quickly and easily stored into a handy stuff sack. The jacket which comes in many cool colors can be worn with a cozy wool scarf and a pair of protective snow boots during the cold winter.
Next on my list of favorites was truth x Vans by Kevin Lyons, one-of-a-kind sneakers that encourage everyone to use their voices and creativity to end smoking for good. When it comes to teen tobacco use, truth believes creativity speaks louder than words. That’s why truth partnered with Brooklyn-based graphic artist Lyons to create a one-of-a-kind mural of monsters inspired by the generation that will end smoking once and for all. The artwork was then turned into a limited-edition Vans shoe, which were given away as gifts at The Official Gift Lounge for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
Also catching my eye was SIS by Simone I. Smith jewelry + FOCUS for Men bracelets. Simone is LL Cool J’s wife. She started this amazing jewelry line after in 2011 with two goals in mind: To transform her life-long affection for accessories into a thriving enterprise and offer a helping hand to those in need. A 10-year cancer survivor, Simone finds as much joy in designing earrings, bracelets and her ever-popular sweet touch of hope lollipop pendants as she does when working with the American Cancer Society.
Other Lounge offerings included Phillip Ashley Chocolates’ Luxe Collection, chic Belldini apparel, the ultimate fitness package from Fit Club TV: Live in Fitness retreat + Fit Culture Threads designer workout apparel + Fit Culture Fuel health & performance supplements, Flos Floris snap back hats, the hottest designer sunglasses from Marchon, custom cocktails & mixology from The Natural Mixologist, NOON VR headsets, SCUF Gaming Infinity 1 professional customized controllers and accessories.
