Freshfields sent out umbrellas earlier in the month. Similar to the K&E umbrellas but slightly nicer. I'm beginning to think that their gift strategy is "Send the same gifts as Kirkland but nicer."

I have free stuff from events with firms where I wasn't offered or anything. Is it still poor form to use that stuff, even though maybe half the class has it?

Shearman's is the same as last year I think. We received a portable battery charger about a month back and we just recently got duffel bags. :)

Orrick sent a pair of wireless headphones and a zip-up hoodie post-offer, and I know Clifford Chance sent brownies again this year.

Once we get more responses, can we have a poll to vote on which ones are the best?

That Kirkland blanket at the top of this page sure looks sexy. I hope they don't change the gift!

Really hoping the weird charger/power bank I got from Latham post offer isn't the only thing they are sending out.
