The Golden Globes gift bag is always an ultra-luxe affair. Curated by luxury and lifestyle magazine Robb Report, this year’s gift bags offered to winners and presenters include 35 products and experiences totalling US$500,000 (Au$745,000).

“While ‘The Ultimate Gift Bag’ may be the most valuable ever at over $500,000 in value, it’s also the most unique in terms of presentation, delivery, and curation of items,” Robb Report President Luke Bahrenburg said.

The most valuable gift of all is a US$193,500 half-dozen of Liber Pater – the world’s most expensive wine – on offer for 1 recipient.

In the travel and experiences category, the most valuable gift is a US$50,000 five-day/four-night luxury yacht charter in Indonesia with Celestia Phinisi Yacht, and it’s offered to all 83 recipients.

The next most valuable travel and experience gift is two drive spots for a total of four guests with Robb Report’s car of the year, valued at US$28,000. Then there’s a US$15,000 all-inclusive stay at New Zealand’s Flockhill Lodge.

In the apparel and beauty categories, the most expensive gift is a US$69,000 pair of Colombian Emerald earrings by Coomi x Muzo, followed by a watch and manufacture experience at Zenith valued at US$14,000.
