matching flasks: birthday gifts for him & her

There's a couple that Eric and I absolutely adore.  We consider them our very close friends.  We can all hang out together and have a blast, or I can hang out the Danny by myself and laugh my butt off, so can Eric and Jen.  How often can you find those type of friends who you can go on double dates too?!
