One firm invited me to a (free) night of bowling and dinner with several of its attorneys and the other potential SAs. Thought that was pretty cool...

Curious if Fried Frank (NY) sends out anything.... I will likely accept there.

I want a Bonsai tree... That is almost reason enough to accept that offer.

They really need to tell us these things in the interviews. It is another line on the pro side. Can never hurt unless they give crappy things... like a stress ball.

Last year FF sent a very large duffel bag with the firm's name embroidered on the side. Quality travel bag.

Boston firms like to do cold weather stuff - fleeces and blankets and such. But that's more of a winter thing than immediately post acceptance, obviously.

Edit because I remembered on a related note -
Bear in mind that if you have a school with an early recruiting timeline and accept an offer early on, the recruiting people from your firm are usually still happy to invite you to the events they throw to try to convince the later accepters. And those tend to be really good dinners because they're trying to impress people.

My firm gave me a Starbucks gift card at Christmas. The swag, like a fleece jacket, only came after I completed my summer.

K&E New York sent brownies this year too. They shipped from "Blissful Brownies" in Portland, OR and had an ornate plant-heavy logo so some people at my school got really excited until they realized that they were from a law firm.
