Eagle Scouts

Any idea what to get a new Eagle Scout as a present?
This is the oldest son of my best friend. I want to do or get something special but have no ideas.
His project is to interview veterans of and submit their interviews on film to the Library of Congress. Most of the scouts around here are cleaning up parks or churches, planting flowers etc (on a large scale).
I am proud of him for thinking outside of the box and taking on such a huge and memorable project. He is only 14-and his project isn't finished yet.

Ljsmom - can you check the US mint site and see if there is an eagle coin. If you want something scout related how about one of those fleece throws that show the boy scout emblem. Mine still has a ways to go but I want to take his scout t-shirts and neckerchiefs and make a quilt out of them.

HI,
well being in the Scouting program for many many years and have done over 120 eagle ceremonies maybe I can help here are some ideas that you can look in to for eagle gifts. If I get a chance I will get my dig camera out and show one of my gifts an Eagle had given me. As they say Be prepared here are the links for now.

Craftylady-those sights are AWESOME! Now I just have to choose...that'll be the hard part.

If you happen to know of a Grandparent pin for Eagles or something please pass that info along. Have to find something for the Gparents too.

It's been a long time for me too. I was a Den Mother as well as a leader for the Girl Scouts.

LJsmom, what is the scout in to? I think something that he is interested in is better than something else. jmo I like those links!
What about a trip? Also, what about something he'll appreciate when he's grown as well as a sleep-over or party that he'll appreciate now?

LJsmom, he sounds like one motivated Scout! Congratulations to him!
I don't know if you are looking for something Scout-related, or if you want to get him something related to his hobbies/interests. I'd vote for the second, since not all boys are into the "memento" thing.

I saw a car with a bumper sticker last week that said, "I'm Proud of My Eagle Scout!" Would the grandparents like something like that?

Barb, as a grandmother, I cannot see how a grandparent could ever be too proud to show off about his/her grandkids! I think they would love a bumper sticker.
