Earning the Eagle Scout rank means the Scout has reached the highest rank possible, one which is achieved by only a few Scouts. In the Court of Honor ceremony where the Eagle Scouts will be recognized and awarded, bringing signed cards of congratulations is appropriate and thoughtful, but if you want to take your gift-giving a notch higher, here are some ideas:
There are many Eagle Scout merchandise available online and on your local Scouting shops. You can give a walking staff with the Eagle emblem to symbolize his trek to becoming an Eagle Scout. There are more items like Eagle Scout Challenge coins, ring, compass, or watch where you could have their names engraved – that way, it’s more personal.
It is very becoming of every Eagle Scout to be in service of men and be charitable. Giving donations to an organization about which the new Eagle Scout is passionate might be something they’ll be extremely grateful to you for.
- Other gift ideas
For an Eagle Scout who does a lot of camping, sports, and other outdoor activities, a gift card for stores selling gear could be very useful for them. If he’s getting ready to head to college or loves to read, a gift card to Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, or to his university’s bookstore will be a splendid send-away gift.
Here’s an excellent gift idea: To truly embody the zeal and value of the Court of Honor ceremony, you can gift your Eagle Scout with this handcrafted MarqART Wood Art Eagle Box. It is made of Rubberwood and has its own unique wood grain pattern and color, so no two designs are the same.
The outside wood and inside walls have satin lacquer finish. The bottom has tan velvet to prevent scratches, and the inside bottom is black velvet to protect your fine jewelry. This box is made by MarqART Wood Designs, a small family business in Colorado that creates original, high-quality wood art. It has a solid sturdy construction, designed and built to last a life time.
