I would have gone with a Sword if I could have afforded it for my FI’s OCS grad, but I’m somewhat glad I didn’t because it would have NEVER been used. Except maybe at our wedding, but maybe that will be a wedding present?. I love the idea of a dress watch. I ended up going with an engraved flask and a battleship game. Battleship was mostly just a joke since he’s Navy, but he loved that more than the flask I think. I’m sure you’ll figure out what he would like most!

personaized challenge coin (you can get them engraved pretty easily)

sword (which are cool to display, you can get a bracket for it)

good quality watch with an engraved back

if he’s prior enlisted and has ribbons, get his ribbons professionally mounted

A sword! or a really nice watch (maybe a skeleton one where you can see all the gears).

I am planning on getting my Darling Husband a Citizen Eco Drive watch after he is done with training.  He’s always wanted one, and they are super cool!  They never stop, and run on light and movement.  They’re pricey enough that they’re a really nice gift, but aren’t terribly expensive.
