What's Inside This Year's (Much Smaller) White House Correspondents Swag Bag
The White House Correspondents dinner took place on Saturday, and celebrities, political figures and journalists turned out for the annual mix of comedy and current events. With such a star-studded event such as this, it can be assumed that the swag bag is extravagant. As a matter of fact, while the bag for this year’s event was full of big-ticket items, it was roughly half the weight of last year’s bag. It weighed in at 8.4 lbs., compared to 17.2 lbs. in 2014 and 20.6 lbs. in 2013.
Among the $550 worth of items stuffed into a LeSportsac backpack were items such as a SoulCycle $100 gift certificate, a Sally King Benedict art print, Kasmi Tea Rose green tea, and a Toyota foot massage kit (which includes a wooden massager, foot lotion and salts).
