The value of a TIFF swag bag

Stars gifted jewelry, makeup and organic everything


Stars attending this year’s Toronto International Film Festival will have a few less things to worry about before hitting the red carpet thanks to hand-delivered gift bags stuffed with everyday essentials from beauty products to snacks and even accessories. Glo Communication’s Bask-It-Style swag bags will be placed in some 25 A-list celebrity hotel rooms throughout the 10-day festival. Past celebs gifted “Bask-Its” include Sir Elton John, Megan Fox, Matt Damon, Ellen Page, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore and many more. MoneySense got a sneak peek of this year’s mostly Canadian goodie bag from high-atop the Shangri-la Private Estates.
