More Gift Ideas for Eagle Scouts

Buying Criteria

Type of Gift

Not all Eagle Scouts are alike, and many are more involved than others. Consider their activity in the scouts before choosing a gift. For those who are hyper-involved, choose a gift with meaning specific to the Eagle Scouts. For those less focused and who view the scouts as more of a hobby, then choose a more universal gift. 

Many Eagle Scouts love to camp but already have many items they need. So check with the boy’s parents before deciding what to buy if possible. Again, you can always choose a more universal gift to avoid issues. 

Some boys will love decoration while others will prefer something to wear. Additionally, others will prefer useful gifts or those for camping. Many camping items can function well in normal day-to-day life. 

Court of Honor Ceremony

If you are shopping for an Eagle Scout, you may be planning a gift for the Court of Honor Ceremony that celebrates the scout’s achievement to the highest honor. In this case, he may be receiving several gifts, and it’s best to check with the parents to see what would be a good gift option. When in doubt, pick a useful gift like a water cup or a notebook. 

You are not compelled to give a gift for this ceremony, but you most definitely can, as most boys love gifts! It’s a great honor and worthy of celebrating. As long as you choose something thoughtful, they will love anything you choose. 


A gift is supposed to express caring, and caring does not require a major price tag. Smaller gifts with lower price tags can still bring the same intent. Often the most thoughtful gifts are not the most expensive but those made or bought with love. 

If budget prevents you from buying something very expensive, you can find gifts under ten dollars and up on this list. Be creative, like with a shadow box or something equally unique. Think about the other things this Eagle Scout in your life loves and maybe find a gift that works for both of his hobbies. 

FAQs – Gifts for Eagle Scouts

Should I give a gift card instead of a gift? 

Gift cards always make a great gift and help the Eagle Scouts to buy exactly what they want or need. However, gift cards aren’t as personal. If you are looking for a personal gift but also want a gift card, make sure to choose one for a store they frequent. 

I know Eagle Scouts get a boost for college, should I give them cash for a college fund? 

A college fund makes a fabulous gift as there are so many areas of expense. However, you need to know the Eagle Scout will save that money for college or start an actual fund for him. Otherwise, you might as well give him an open gift card and add on there it’s intended for college. 

How much money should I spend on a gift for an Eagle Scout? 

Between $15 to $40 is more than appropriate for the occasion. No gift is expected for the Court Ceremony but always appreciated. Again, do not go outside of your comfortable budget as a gift does not need to be expensive, but parents and grandparents may want to spend more. 

Does every Eagle Scout need a lot of camping gear? 

No, not every Eagle Scout continues to camp, but many do. When in doubt, pick a gift that can work for camping and everyday life. Some great options would be a travel cup, a notebook, or even a flashlight.
