My daughters boyfriend is having an Eagle Scout ceremony tonight and I found out a gift is a good idea. So what do I give for this sort of thing besides a card with money? I am completely at a loss.

I think most people give a card with money.  I gave books.  My nephew is a nerd.  ;)

DH (Scoutmaster) usually goes to the scout office and picks up an Eagle belt buckle.  Neat gifts that my two Eagles received were a Leatherman with the case that clips to a belt, a 1950's Boy Scout manual, and a license plate frame with an Eagle on it.

My Eagle Scout received some gift cards (places like Bass Pro Shops, or Amazon) -- he used those to upgrade his camping/hiking equipment.  He also received gifts of money, which he set aside for the same purpose.  A family friend gave him a nice Eagle Scout wallet.
