It's better than a gift card, but the White House's latest round of gifts for a foreign dignitary is raising a few eyebrows: President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have presented the British PM David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, with a wood and charcoal burning grill engraved with American and British friendship flags. The grill came with his-and-her White House chef jackets embroidered with the Camerons' names. Maybe they're manning the grill for tonight's state dinner?
The White House says the gifts commemorate the Obamas' May 2011 visit to London, when the Obamas and Camerons held a cookout for American and British members of the military. Michelle Obama also gave Samantha Cameron a vase of White House honey. And the Cameron children got bean bag chairs embroidered with their names and the presidential seal.
