TV and movie stars were out in full force for day one of GBK’s annual Pre-Golden Globes Celebrity Gift Lounge, taking place at Kimpton La Peer Hotel. The rooftop was abuzz as stars from the Freeform Party of Five reboot, Lyric Ross from This Is Us, Jessica Park from The Flash, Esai Morales & Diana-Maria Riva from Dead To Me, and the legendary Bruce Dern mingled among the coolest new toys in beauty and wellness.
By far the cutest vendor at the event was The Couture Bow Ties for pets and people by ZuZu Kim, which was being modeled by puppies in attendance. For celebs looking for a getaway, Sailrock Resort is Turks & Caicos gifted a 2-night stay in luxurious Ocean-View Suites. Although most guests remain anonymous, Sailrock Resort has been known to host Neil Patrick Harris and his family.
No gifting suite would be complete without a CBD vendor and this time it was the adorable grassroots New England Hemp Farm. They offered guests samples of lotions, bath bombs, and gummies, along with their CBDoinks.
As if that wasn’t enough cannabis paraphernalia, Genius Pipe was showing off their latest product, the water-free dab rig on their super sleek and modern smoking and dabbing devices.
After all the cannabis products, there was of course yummy munchies, including the completely dairy free and delicious Miyoko’s cheese. Although the cheese was made of cashews, flavors available to taste included garlic herb and a smokey black ash.
Of course, the best gifts are those with a cause behind them, like Yowie. Not only are they all-natural, non-GMO candies, but they’re educating kids about eco-convservation and endangered animals all over the world. An Australian company, the chocolate candies include animal toys inside as well as information.
