The 2021 DPA Golden Globes Gift Suite at the Luxe Hotel: feel the luxury beyond the mask !

By Emmanuel Itier (self portray)

It’s the season again- the gift suite and film awards season is wide open!

If there is one brilliant re-invention from Nathalie Dubois and her DPA gift suite lounge ( ) it is how this maverick entrepreneur was able to surf the covid pandemic and create a “drive in” gift suite in the parking lot of the Luxe hotel ( ). Escape the pandemic nightmare and book yourself a room before the ceremony of the Golden Globes and other upcoming award shows. In this oasis, Nathalie Dubois has gathered some excellent brands for the total enjoyment of the many stars who drove by and got their complimentary goodies. We were lucky to “see” the smiles beyond the mask of the talented: Kevin Hageman, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Adina Porter, JonJon Briones, Sasha Alexander, Hector Elizando, Andra Day, Griffin Matthews, Brandee Evans, Jackie Tohn, etc…..I still have stars in my eyes!

So, what do the many nominees got in their bags? And how will that prepare them for the celebration of their talent? Well, just dig in and you could find a lucky winner of a trip to Tahiti! And in any case, they all were offered some great mini-meals prepared by the yummy ‘Carvery Kitchen’ ( ); try their Mongolian pulled pork dip or their juicy Corned Beef Brisket- a must! This year, so many other brands were generous to participate in this “drive in” gift suite. You just had to pull forward in the Luxe parking lot and discover the many tables covered with gifts. Then, the kind caring helpers of DPA and Dubois’ team would bring you the goodies to your car, masks on, please (why not try: AirPOP masks enclosed in one of the bag). Within a few minutes, some sweets would land in your car from “The Candy Depot” ( ), some nourishing 100% vegan muscle and joint salve cream from Autumn Brands  and rejuvenate yourself with some products made by Asea Global and before being able to rinse it off with a touch of a love soap by Maine Island Soap . Onto some geeky eyewear from Geek EyeWear . Once you have your special agent glasses, indulge yourself with some gummy bears from New England Hemp Farm ( ),  but don’t forget to have lots of minerals in your Bougie bottle ( ) and make sure to call your agents to thank them for your nomination with a radiation protective cover for your phone by FazUp . To add one touch of glamour to your perfect smile when receiving the Award, put a touch of star dust with brushes made by Luxie Beauty . Finally, nothing would be possible without cheering to this delicious experience with a shot of ‘Ten to One’ Caribbean rum from  and giving to your love one a jewel from Tough As A Mother Tribe , as well as a good book to enter the land of dreams by Amylea Murphy: FINE ( !)

Because, it doesn’t matter if you win or not, you will be fine, very fine! And so were we after visiting DPA 2021 gift drive-in suit! Bravo!


Santé! See you at the movies…when the theatre re-opens!
