What’s in the (Tiffany) box?

Inquiring minds want to know what the Trumps gave the Obamas at the White House this morning.

What’s being dubbed a peaceful transition of power fully got underway as President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle welcomed Donald and Melania Trump to the White House this morning.

Before the foursome headed inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.for coffee, the soon-to-be first lady handed the outgoing first lady an instantly recognizable gift: a blue Tiffany & Co. box. Tiffany, of course, is a neighbor of the Trumps in New York.

An awkward moment ensued when Michelle didn’t know quite what to do with her gift, and the moment was instantly circulated on social media as moments like these usually are.

It’s not the first time Tiffany’s signature blue boxes have entered the home of the U.S. president.

“The White House has been a patron of the house of Tiffany & Co. since Abraham Lincoln,” Nathan Strauss, the company’s communications director, told CNN, but did not let on what’s in the box.

Our guess? Given its flatness, a frame. With a photo of The Donald.
