The GBK MTV Movie Awards Gifting Lounge was held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly this weekend.

This invitation only lounge was open to various celebrities on Friday and Saturday. Nominees and presenters gathered for afternoons filled with unique gifts and entertainment. This year’s suite had a vintage cinema theme. Guest entered through a garden decorated with black and white cabanas, mirrored tables, and comfy couches.

GBK Productions, one of the top gifting suite production companies and the recipient of multiple BizBash Awards for “Best Gift Bag,” offered its exclusive list of invited celebrities, VIPs and media the opportunity to enjoy the fabulous L.A. weather with custom ice cream and free bar drinks.

Various sponsors bombarded Movie Awards nominees, comedians and recording artists with extravagant merchandise. Guests received trips to the Caribbean, vintage couture clothing, jewelry, wine, makeup and much more. Many of the female guests spent the most time checking out the Hard Candy cosmetics display. The company gave guests free makeovers and provided them with a never-ending supply of makeup. People could choose from essentials like concealer and then build themselves up to more flashy items like glitter mascara.

Other great gifted items included SOHO Beauty Cases and makeup brushes, Nanodots™ Magnetic Constructors, ADMIT TO BITTER products, an online platform for New York City artists, musicians, and fashion designers, Chelsea Taylor jewelry, and Bark After Dark dog care services.

But for this event taste buds beat out style; some of the most popular vendors of the weekend were the ones with tasty treats. Dotpops! Bakery provided handmade cake lollipops in various flavors and designs. Sweet Rose Creamery offered small batch organic ice cream treats from bon bons to ice cream sandwiches. Guests could also build their own ice cream bars courtesy of Boardwalk Ice Cream Co. The company uses all natural ingredients to make premium ice cream on a stick that is hand-dipped into real chocolate and finally rolled into a variety of candy and nut toppings. Apple Revolution provided attendees with designer caramel apples and Waialua Soda Works, a natural, old- fashioned soda company based on the North Shore of Hawaii helped people wash down the sweet treats.
