Totally OT: Gift for Boy Scout Eagle rank
My nephew is getting his Eagle this week, and we are invited to the ceremony. I'm not sure what to get him. Anybody have ideas? Do most people give cash?

Not had any experience with this but if you could get one what about a belt buckle in an eagle shape? Lot of biker type stores would have them..??

That's a great accomplishment! Congrats to your nephew!

Some ideas for gifts...
A nice Eagle statue, blanket, framed picture, etc. Anything eagle themed is appropriate.
Other ideas... Swiss Army Knife, a watch, engraved keychain, or engraved picture frame for the photo of him receiving this honor...
