From a luxury train ride through the Rockies to vouchers for a sweets and dessert buffet table, this year's Oscars goodie bag looks a lot like our wish list.

Keira Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and a host of other stars who are nominated for either best actor/actress, best supporting actor/actress or best director at the Academy Awards on Sunday, will receive the gift bags valued at more than $125,000 (£80,966), according to Variety.

Aside from the skincare products and high-end accessories the nominees are usually given, this year's lavish bag - which has been dubbed as a consolation prize for those contenders who don't win an Oscar - also includes a three-night stay at a resort in Tuscany and a "Glamping" trip worth $12,500 (£8,096).

We imagine what a Glamping trip worth £8,096 looks like

But the most highly valued item in this year’s bag is a $20,000 (£12,954) gift certificate to have mindfulness website Enigma Life founder Olessia Kantor fly out to meet with each nominee “to discuss their 2015 horoscope, analyse dreams and teach them mind control techniques”. Sounds intriguing.
