Taking place in the swanky W Hotel in Hollywood, the WOW Creations Pre-Oscars Gifting Suite utilized both the indoor and outdoor second floor of the stylish residence overlooking the iconic Los Angeles neighborhood. The ultra modern rooms were filled with booths offering everything from face cream to hair extension to new beverages, and Red Carpet Report host Emily Bicks had a ball checking out all of this year’s swag.

Some notable celebrities at this gift suite event included “La La Land’s” Jordan Horowitz, Producer (who you may recognize from the Best Picture debacle at the Oscars) and John Garfield Oscar Winner for Editing of “Hacksaw Ridge.”

By far the most beautiful gift she took home, a delicate pair of long drop black pearl earrings from Obelo Jewelry. The couture line includes everything from wrist cuffs to statement necklaces and every item exudes a kind of timeless glamour.

Our favorite new face cream, Hotty Balm, not only has a killer name, it’s made with all natural ingredients. You can actually read and recognize all that goes into creating the facial balm which is free of all synthetic chemicals, and is safe for even the most sensitive of skin.

Making ladies’ undergarments glam, Jewel Straps. With adjustable small bra hooks, the straps are no longer meant to be hidden. With an array of bejeweled options and colors, and the option to customize your own design, it’s like your shoulders are wearing jewelry.

We see quite a few hair extension booths at gifting suites through the year, but Queen C Hair makes the softest pieces we’ve ever felt. Made with 100% Remy Double Drawn human hair, Queen C uses a barely there custom designed silicon strip on the clips so once attached, a person’s hair doesn’t get damaged. They are also the most natural looking extensions, for they each have a unique multi-tonal color, so it easily blends in with your own natural hair.

Not usually a fan canned energy beverages, Emily was convinced to give the new Unique Energy Drink a shot, and dang. It was surprisingly good. Made with green tea and loaded with potassium and Vitamin B12, Unique doesn’t taste like your average energy drink, and we mean that as a compliment.

We also loved the adorable personalized pins by Ziggit. Emily couldn’t choose between the ice-cream cone, the pizza slice, and the stiletto heel, so it was awesome to discover that she was able to take home all three! You can snap these little buttons on everything from laces to hats to shirts, and the easily removable pins won’t puncture or damage the material.

Red Carpet Report finished off the day with a visit to the Crazy Loops, which has created such a great simple item to be used for fundraisers. In addition to the zillions of designs they already offered, the shoelace strap, which can also be used as a keychain, can be fully customized. No matter your age, it’s a super adorable way to show off which school or charity you love to support.
