Distinctive assets is once again sending its condolences in the form of a bountiful Gift Basket to Oscar nominees who didn't win in the major Academy Awards categories including Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress and Best Director. Maybe condolence is not the right word, but the actors and actress still win, in my opinion.
Hollywood has seen its share of ups and downs over the past few months, but it doesn’t tarnish the fact that
Distinctive assets celebrated the amazing actors and actresses who have graced the big screen and entertained millions of audiences all around the world. Distinctive Assets presented them with an abundant assortment of gifts.
In response to the ever changing climate of Hollywood,
Distinctive assets has opted for a tastefully understated Gift Basket this year, sacrificing opulence and an over-the-top-price tag in favor of fun, functionality and relaxation.

Products, Gothic Dog, Om Aroma & Co., Kirstie Kelly, Magical Voice Productions, OnTray, London Sole, NutriFit, La Costa Resort & Spa, Naturescast, Jolan, Jessie New World Beauty, Kim VO Enterprises, Hollywood Cook Book, Scene it? on Xbox 360, The Escapes Group, Poo-pourri, Zildjian, 9 Manning Square, NaturesCast, Sprayology, Fundora Dental Corporation, Foxers, Buzzen, Maxtor, Interiuers, The Loved Dog, Ritmo Mvndo, Madison Ave. Candles, Unite Hairspray, Grant Dawson Collections, Piedmont Distillers, Sanani Coffee Company, O Hotel & Pacific Coast Transportation, isABelt Ltd., Better Bacon, Angelprints Jewelry, Thomas Chase, glotosleep.us and others.
