And on the Canadian tour, both he and Kate were given personalized hockey sweaters, after William showed off his skills at the sport. Other gifts from the couple's Canada trip included a quilt, soft toys, several pairs of shoes and a flying helmet.
On the U.S. leg of the couple's first overseas tour together, they were offered an iPad, a bread board, a pair of earrings and a teddy bear -- as well as the more traditional flowers and pictures. AFP/Getty Images
