The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently held its Official Daytime Emmy Awards Luxury Gifting Lounge at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

Daytime Emmy nominees and presenters were treated to such goods as sunglasses by the ultra hip Toxic Eyewear and Di Valdi.

Porsamo Bleu gifted watches for men and women with such unique dials as mother of pearl centers surrounded by 12 diamonds. Guests also got to choose bracelets and rings by Caposanti including 14K gold plated styles with topaz gemstones.

The Two Guys Bowties (as seen on TV's Shark Tank) handed out their signature wooden bowties and their latest, wood brimmed fedoras.

Designer Jessie Liu was on hand with her fashion designs, including trench coats, blazers and dresses. Inspired by Japanese pop culture and traditional societal mores, Liu uses silk fabrications, vibrant graphics and leathers to create body skimming silhouettes.

Inhale Health had its Vitamin Vapor, an inhalable multivitamin that delivers vitamins B1, B2, B12 and B6 directly to the bloodstream through inhalation.

Newly opened spa facility Planet Beach of West L.A. created a pop-up spa at the suite, providing everything from organic spray tans to massage chairs to full-body red light therapy.

Among them includes the popular Hot Box Detox, an infra red sauna with a virtual instructor that guides the user through a 30-minute isometric workout.

Ubell-Meyer also produced the upcoming Hampton Memorial Day Gift Bag for celebrities, VIPs and Hamptonites making their way to their summer homes. This year marks Madison Mulholland's 15th year of gifting throughout Long Island's beaches and towns in the Hamptons.

This gift bag program was designed to encourage reading and literacy and this year's bag - sponsored by private jet company White Cloud Charter at the Westchester Airport - is no different.

Books include novels such as Before the Fall, The Progeny, June and The Travelers. Non-fiction reading in the bag contains Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from A Rapper Who Almost Made It Big, Kate Siegel's Mother Can You Not? based on her popular Instagram account and the memoir, In the Name of Gucci. Plus, there is also the inspirational Find Your Extraordinary.

The books all come in a White Cloud Charter beach bag, that contains a glass water bottle and beauty products such La Pomme's Apple Stem Cell Serum and Madison & Mullholland's own Blue Mirror Aviators among other things.

Reservations for the Hampton Gift Bag are available until Tuesday may 24 on Hamptongiftbag.com.
