Before beginning inauguration ceremonies, Melania Trump surprised Michelle Obama with a gift. As both women stood with their husbands nearby, Melania gave the departing first lady a blue box from Tiffany, which Twitter users are very curious about, The New York Times reports. Tiffany & Co. has a flagship store inside Trump Towers.
The delivery of the gift caused a brief awkward moment among the group, as Michelle held the box with seemingly no idea what to do with it. There was no one around for her to hand the box to, and the group was about to take a photo together, US Weekly shares. Pictures of Michelle receiving the gift are pretty great.

In the end, President Obama saved the day when he took the box and handed it to an unknown person inside.
But what’s inside the box? After asking a variety of questions to a Tiffany spokesman trying to find some hints, the Times sadly came up with nothing. Director of Corporate Communications for the company, Nathan Strauss, wrote, “The White House has been a patron of the house of Tiffany & Co. since Abraham Lincoln,” giving no inclination as to what the gift may be.
Twitter users quickly jumped in to throw out some guesses as to what may be inside that blue box. Some suggestions include a silver frame or a box set of Apprentice DVDs. Others used the opportunity to make some jokes about the White House Transition.
Seems like Melania Trump gave Michelle a big ol’ Tiffany’s box- it looks roughly the right size to be a silver frame https://t.co/DxpVDga8e4

Inside the blue Tiffany’s box Melania handed Michelle is just a desperately scrawled note that says “Take me with you.”

Word is that inside Melania’s Tiffany’s box is Trump’s long-anticipated tax returns as a gift to the American public #Inauguration2017

Any other guesses as to what might be in there?
