Fascinating List Of Gifts Will & Kate Received On Tour

Clarence House has released a list of the gifts given to Will and Kate by dignitaries and fans during their tour of Canada last summer.

In no particular order, here is the diverse list of gifts (some practical, others quirky) they received:

* elaborate hats
* an iPad
* a game board
* two cowboy hats from Mayor of Calgary
* Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq gave them mosquito traps.
* Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird gave Kate three pairs of shoes, while the Minister of Alberta gave her a blue hat.
* Kate received a tartan fascinator, a peacock feather fascinator, a number of hand-made scarves and jewellery including brooches and necklaces.
* Will was presented with a pilot's helmet by a unit of the Royal Canadian Air Force and a knife by the Canadian Rangers Patrol Group.
* diamond-encrusted, polar bear-themed brooch and cuff links by then-Northwest Territories premier Floyd Roland.
* fabric wall hanging
* a bottle of icewine and champagne
* snow goggles
* dragonfly brooch
* toy dog
* Governor General David Johnson -- the representative of Will's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth -- gave the couple a quilt and commemorative album.
* Prime Minister Stephen Harper presented them with a woolen blanket, a framed photograph, souvenir edition Canadian magazines, two jackets, a bottle of whiskey and a Canadian flag.
* two children’s drawings
* rock sample
* soapstone sculpture

A palace official says all gifts are registered, then either placed in storage or put on display in royal residences.

Imagine the amazing gifts they'll receive on their tour next year
