We’re all familiar with swag bags given to A-list Oscar nominees each year. The gifts are usually extravagant and this year is no different. Estimates put the value of this year’s swag at $200,000 and have gifts ranging from resort travel packages (Walk Japan) to rouge made of maple syrup (Rouge Maple) to vaporizers (Haze Vaporizers).
Other brands giving away major swag are My M&M’s, Dr. Jane 360, Lizora, Hydroxycut, Slimware, Steamist and Greenhill Vineyards, Halo Freeze-Dried kiblets, Phantom Glass, Sedona Lace, Vampire Breast Lift, Fiera Arouser for her, ChapStick, Steamist, Rock the Vote, Belldini, DELOVERY, Fit Club TV: Live in Fitness, Farm Wife Style, TheraCane MAX, Tools by Gina, ExploreIsrael.com, unlimited Audi car rentals from Silvercar, extravagant trips from Golden Door and Grand Hotel Tremezzo, and so much more.
But, for the first time in its history, the Oscar swag bag will have a Zekkle inside, a RFID powder coated metal front pocket wallet. Staying true to its tagline “As Unique As You Are,” it is offered in a variety of unique and really cool colors that appeal to both men and women. The Zekkle is comprised of two metal plates that are powder coated with some of the most amazing and creative color combinations you’ve ever seen in a wallet. Holding the two plates together is a durable band that is color coordinated with the plates. The Zekkle will store credit cards, currency, and an ID. No room was made for coins because, really, who carries change around these days?
“We’re not advocates of killing animals to manufacture wallets so we’ve constructed them from aluminum alloy. Zekkle Edge wallets are also really attractive and unusual, fit in the palm of a hand, are recyclable, and will just about last forever” says Shivie Dhillon, co-founder of Zekkle LLC. “We just launched the product at the beginning of 2016 and thought that the Oscars would be the perfect coming-out party for us. Our feeling is that actors and actresses alike would not only like and appreciate the wallet itself but would also appreciate a wallet produced in accordance with their values and sensibilities.”
Zekkle is designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, California.
