The President has also been given classic Lacoste polo shirts, elegant lighters, glass goblets, a silver fountain pen, leather wallets and tote bags by French people and a wooden coyote in a display box among others.

It was also revealed that everything is accepted to avoid embarrassment to the donor and US Government but it is then sent to the National Archives and Records Administration and perishables are dealt with according to Secret Service protocol.
