The official gift bag for the Oscars has been revealed, coming in with a whopping $80,000 worth of merchandise, but not everything included is all that glam or something one might think to give an Oscar nominee.

AccessHollywood.com takes a look at five of the stranger items – according to The Huffington Post – that stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence will be taking home:

  1. Simon’s Happy Pet Shampoo: Because of course big screen stars wash their own pets!
  2. A mace pepper spray gun: Yes, that’s what we need in the hands of someone who just lost out on possibly the biggest achievement of their career.
  3. ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System performed by Dr. William Yates: Maybe you’ll win next year if you have fuller hair?
  4. Slimware portion-control plates: Though very Hollywood appropriate, not exactly a fun item to find in the bottom of a gift bag.
  5. The O-Shot procedure by Dr. Charles Runels: According to its website, it helps to “rejuvenate” a woman’s nether regions and “cure urinary incontinence and sex problems”… this gift just seems a little rude!

And the best item included in the Oscars gift bag?
