  1. I love your list! I have a military guy and I need a few more things for him. I will check out these stores for sure.

  2. These sound like great gifts for those in the military. I think many would get use out of the decanter. That is a really lovely gift and personalisation makes it even better.

  3. I agree with you. Finding the perfect gift for them is a challenge. Love the idea of getting my brother a personalized patriotic decanter set. I think he will like this. Thank you for sharing these gift ideas.

  4. LOVE this list and you have helped me to find a gift for my Dad. He is retired MIT fro the Navy and will love all of these!
