World leader gifting is so very strange! David and Samantha Cameron are currently visiting the White House, and many a present has been exchanged between Britain’s First Family and the Obamas.
Here’s the breakdown…
David to the Obamas: customized ping pong table
The Obamas to the Camerons: one-of-a-kind handmade grill and personalized White House chef jackets
The Camerons to Malia and Sasha: set of classic British books with customized sleeves
The Obamas to Nancy, Arthur, and Florence (aka “the Cameron kids”): personalized bean bag chairs
Samantha to Michelle: printed Jonathan Saunders scarf
Michelle to Samantha: crystal vase, White House honey, chamomile seeds from her garden, and custom candle
So much customization and personalization and other -izations! We happen to think the Camerons won this gift battle, hands down. Ping pong! Books! Jonathan Saunders! And what did they wear today? Samantha chose a color-blocked Roksanda Ilincic dress, while Michelle donned a demure Zac Posen ensemble. The guys wore…suits. Take a look at their duds (and the awesome Jonathan Saunders scarf) below:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
