I am sure you know that it is SL's thirteenth birthday. Wow, that's a long time in virtual land. Along with music and exhibits, talks and trips down memory lane there are gifts.
You can find gifts at the community celebration of course. My artist plot is right across from one of the gift areas and I did drop a box there :D. There is also a hunt and of course gifts scattered around the exhibits. All good.
This year there is something new, presents from designers at various venues around the grid. Oddly there are no colorful birthday cakes to click on at COLLABOR88; I don't know the story there. But there are plenty of other events to check out and pick up presents while you peruse and shop. Some may be difficult to get into, so just keep trying.
Several friends journeyed out on gathering expeditions and I asked them to pick their favorite items. Here are Sami's. Most items have various sizes.
From Kustom 9:

Sami reports that a lot of Tres Chic cakes were actually empty so have a cup of chamomile tea while you unpack :D -- or maybe something stronger.
