It's not merely an honor just to be nominated. It's downright lucrative!

As they applaud politely for the winner while silently mourning what might have been, the 2014 Oscar nominees whose names aren't called during the March 2 broadcast will still have quite the consolation prize to lift their spirits – a $55,000 gift bag stuffed with heavenly treats.

According to Variety, the "Everybody Wins" swag bags from Distinctive Assets include the following:

• A wine/chocolate flight pairing from Chicago-based Chocolatines
• A Swiss-made Slow Watch
• Jan Lewis Designs bangle bracelets
• Luxury vacation packages to the Canadian Rockies, Mexico and Japan
• Spa treatments
• Charity donations of 10,000 meals to animal shelters, sponsored by Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres's Halo natural pet food

"To be part of the film industry's biggest night on any level is thrilling," says Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary. "We always look forward to introducing celebrities to an array of companies with fabulous gifts to share, but it's particularly fun to be able to do so when you know it will truly brighten someone's day."

The 86th annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC on March 2 at 7 p.m. ET.
