The Best Items From the 2023 Grammy Gifting Lounge Will Have You Singing in Style

The 2023 Grammy Awards are taking place Sunday, February 5 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS (livestream on Paramount+), which means two things. First, the biggest artists of the year will be gathering at the Arena in Los Angeles to watch performances by Harry Styles, Lizzo, Sam Smith and Kim Petras, Steve Lacy, Bad Bunny, Brandi Carlile, Mary J. Blige, Luke Combs and more. The A-listers will also be waiting to hear who will take home the biggest awards of the year, including Record of the Year (Beyonce or Adele?) and Album of the Year (Beyonce or Adele?).

Secondly, the Grammys mean swag. So. Much. Swag. There are three days of rehearsals for performers and presenters leading up to the Grammys. During that time, celebrities can check out the Grammy Gift Lounge. LA-based entertainment marketing firm Distinctive Assets is back with its lineup of must-have items for the GRAMMY® Gift Lounge as well as the highly coveted Presenter & Performer Gift Bags.

“We are excited to be back in Los Angeles and to once again be creating amazing GRAMMY gift magic,”
says Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary. “While our gifts are known far and wide for being fun, fabulous, useful, and unique, they also serve a grander purpose. Many of the brands we include are from a diverse and inclusive array of small businesses who meaningfully benefit from the worldwide exposure that being associated with Music’s Biggest Night® affords them. This is celebrity marketing with a mission.”

There’s no shortage of high-end goodies included in this year’s gift lounge and gift bags, but there are also several items that non-famous musicians can afford i.e., the rest of us. We’ve selected some of our favorite picks from this year’s Grammy swag lineup, including snacks, skincare, tech, jewelry, shoes, and a NERF blaster. No one is too famous to enjoy a NERF blaster.

1. ReFa Heart Brush

This heart-shaped brush from ReFa will give celebrities some extra shine. The detangler brush adds sheen to hair and is good for the scalp.
