    My favorite gifts that I got were a leather bound flask with my initials on it, a little pocket knife with my initials on it, and my watch that has my initals and graduation date inscribed in it that I wear every day. The flask and knife were somewhere around $50 and the watch around $200 so it doesn't really break the bank. All very classy and timeless gifts.

    You sound terrible at buying gifts, what I'd do in a situation like this was get him a gift card to his favorite store, or one of those credit cards you can buy and put money on. That way he can get what he wants and you don't have to feel bad if you get something that he turns out not to like very much.

    Get him something he wants, and nothing he needs. haha. For my graduation, I got pure cash and a truck. Got close to $1600 total and a 2009 DCSB.:D

    It really depends on his personality.
    If he likes to drink, a flask.
    If he likes high end stuff clothing, get him a watch.
    If he likes camping, get him a quality knife.
    If he's outdoorsy, a gift card to REI.
    If he likes a specific sports team, tickets to the next game.
    etc...

    Engraving really depends on the place. If you bring in an outside item, with a cursive script that says "Congrats" it can range from $12-$35. More letters is more $$$$. I laser etched my friends' names on a knife blade for a groomsman gift for $1/letter.

    A buddy of mine got a flask for $30 and engraving his initials cost $20, so that was $6/letter for a total of $50.

    The things to remember store in the mall is the most convenient place to get it done, but their stuff is cheap and shitty. Call around to sign and engraving places to see their prices. You can save a lot of $$$ by avoiding the mall for engraving.
