A Holiday Gift

A Holiday Gift that a Coast Guard Member or U.S. Military Veteran Will Love

Certain people are very difficult to buy quality gifts for.  After you turn 12, the heartfelt picture drawn with crayons will not cut it.  Cards are nice, but they can seem a little minimalist without a gift attached. Giving gift certificates are similar to giving cash with limitations.  Giving cash is often seen as too impersonal.  It is difficult to find a gift that is personal, high-quality, and not too much.  Give the coast guard member in your life a customized coast guard ring this holiday season.

The Worst Holiday Gifts for U.S. Military Veterans and Civilians

Below is a list of some of the worst holiday gifts:

Re-gifting gifts that you were given and later determined were junk.
Items of clothing that might or might not fit.
Aforementioned gift certificates.  Major credit card gift certificates are among the worst.
The first thing you saw on a discount display, or a gift for the sake of giving a gift.
A coupon book or book on weight loss.

Get a good holiday gift.  The right gift has to be personal, meaningful, and top quality.

Best Gifts for Coast Guard Members and U.S. Military Veterans

A customized coast guard ring can be the perfect gift for the coast guard member or coast guard veteran in your life.  Coast guard rings can be customized with initials and birth stones.  Give something that is meaningful, personal, and memorable.  A number of people do not enjoy wearing rings.  A customized watch can be a good alternative to a customized ring.  A dress watch can make the right statement for coast guard veterans of all walks of life.  Not everyone wants to wear a diamond luxury watch.  Similarly, not everyone wants to pay for a genuine diamond luxury watch.  Give a U.S. armed forces dress watch or a coast guard ring.  Be personal.  Be classy.  And, enjoy many envious looks from other loved ones that bought the gift card with a complementary coupon book.
