Davis Polk sent out a collection of gourmet popcorn, some of them laced with chocolate! Really great pick imo.

White & Case sent out (firm-name branded lol) macarons post-offer acceptance. They've been in contact a few other times too, including hosting a dinner for past and future SAs from my school.

Got a small box of chocolates from Allen & Overy today. They look tasty, but I haven't tried them yet.

White & Case sent an Amazon gift card for the holidays (in addition to the firm-branded macarons).

sending a bunch of stuff probably isn't part of the Williams & Connolly aesthetic. I got a fairly simple holiday card the other day

I am deeply jealous of the Patagonia sweaters.

Even 3Ls got them. I'm legit impressed. Almost as good as getting a raise.

You don't need a sweater when you have that warm feeling in the pit of your stomach that only prestige can bring.

Late to the party, but Hogan Lovells also did firm-branded fleece for people last year. Definitely a T3 gift.

Ropes & Gray sent a $25 Dunkin Donut giftcard. Definitely playing up that New England connection.

No I've never had sex, but you know what? My prestige keeps me satisfied. When a lady walks up to me and says, "Hey, you know what's sexy?" No, I don't know what that is, but I can add up all the ways the vault rankings underrate prestige lit boutiques very fast.

I feel really bad for these poor Munger and W&C summers who feel jealous because they aren't getting nicer holiday swag. Poor souls
