Goodie bag items at the NYWIFT office waiting to be packed up.
One of the fun things about New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) awards shows is the gift bags, and this year’s Designing Women is no exception to the rule. This year’s bag will overflow with goodies from Ricky’s and Sephora. Taste buds will be in for a treat with chocolate goodness from Ferrero Rocher, chocolate-covered pretzels from Red Ribbon Pretzel Company, and delicious Lindt Truffles. For the salt lover we have Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps. Flavorful Zoe Olive Oil is making a return, and stay fresh and energized with Tic Tacs and Red Bull in the handy Time Warner Cable tote bag.
If that isn’t enough, Laura Mercier lipstick and OPI nail polish will dazzle and add a little beauty to the day. Hanes hosiery will glam up your legs while you read up on beauty with an issues of New Beauty magazine and Glow magazine. This year’s Designing Women gift bag is truly completed with Memoire Liquide Perfume, a scent sure to please discerning noses. To top it all off, too big to even fit in the bag, Variety will once again share an issue packed with industry news and entertainment highlights on the seats along with the program for all attending, and Skinny Pop popcorn will be handed out to all.
Who knows, by Wednesday night, there might even be more treats added to the bag for anyone attending Designing Women. Did we mention the mingling with beautiful celebrities? Presenter Jessica Alba is even on the cover of Glamour magazine this month! Or the wonderful reception post-awards? Have you bought your tickets yet? Don’t miss out on a wonderful, star-studded evening, honoring amazing, talented women in our industry and a chance to support NYWIFT and everything they do for all women in film, television, and new media.
