More details from a White House official:
The President and Mrs. Obama gave the Prime Minister a custom-made pair of White House Magnolia wood and sterling silver cufflinks engraved on the reverse with the President's signature, as well as a first edition of President John F. Kennedy's book, Profiles in Courage.
The President and Mrs. Obama gave Mrs. Cameron a custom-designed sterling silver cuff bracelet adorned with a White House Magnolia wood cabochon center, which was presented together with the cufflinks in a hand-carved Magnolia wood valet tray crafted specially for this occasion. The Magnolia wood gifts were fabricated from the Magnolia trees that fell on the grounds of The White House during the snow storm of February 2009.
Each of Prime Minister and Mrs. Cameron's children received a signed, personalized copy of President Obama's book Of Thee I Sing. Nancy and Elwen also received classic American kid toy scooters, and Florence received a handcrafted wooden jigsaw puzzle of Bo Obama, the First Family's dog, and a stuffed animal of Bo.
