They may not have walked away with an Oscar, but these actors aren’t leaving the Academy Awards completely empty-handed. And we’re not just talking about the honor of being nominated.

According to the New York Post, Distinctive Assets has created a consolation gift bag, which will be distributed on Monday morning to the nominees who didn’t win.

Its contents? Some pretty fantastic – and exotic – loot worth, in total, more than $23,000.

Virgin Galatic has provided an orbital space flight, according to the report, while the Huvafen Fushi resort has included a vacation at an underwater spa in the Maldives (furnished by Premier Tours) valued at $16,000.

Also in the gift bag: a pack of Swarovski-bedazzled electronic cigarettes ($100), a fitness retreat from Live in Fitness ($4,800), and some black caviar eye and neck cream from J. Holly International ($200), as well as the use of a private island for five days, complete with a private “houseman,” from APrivateIsland.com ($12,000).
