From chocolate to jewelry to clothing, the DPA Gift Lounge had it all. And that's because DPA has been hosting these gifting suites for nine years and Nathalie Dubois, CEO of DPA, knows what celebs want! "I know a lot of celebrities. I go to their houses to get a feel of what's going on. And that's how I know what they want and what they like."

The pre-awards luxury gift lounge took place at the posh LUXE Hotel on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The lounge was set up for three days and received a lot of celebrity traffic. Among those were: Jeremy Renner (American Hustle), Meghan Ory (Once Upon A Time), actor Dennis Quaid, Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon A Time), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) and Shohreh Aghdashloo (Grimm)

A jewelry designer that caught a lot of celebs attention was Alice Nemeti's (Alice's Chic Boutique) colorful pieces: "I'm so happy to be here! An Access Hollywood reporter picked one of my rings to wear on the red carpet while doing interviews. I told her please if anyone asks where you got that ring, say it was from me!"

Another jewelry table visited by celebs was, Foxine by Theresa Lee Capell who came from Canada to showcase her pieces made out of recycled items. "Two actors from Once Upon A Time took some of my pieces! It feels great!"

Dubois believes their popularity is simply because they are unique. "We go everywhere I go to fashion shows like in Peru. We go to trade commissions here and there... That's why we're so different from everyone else. We put a lot of effort in it."
