It’s a fun and useful gift that can actually be personalized on the side with his initials or his first or last name. A flask is basically a container for liquid that is made in a flat shape so it slides into and fits in a pocket very easily for maximum portability. A flask is traditionally used to hold a liquor of some sort, usually a hard liquor like tequila, whiskey, scotch or bourbon. However, there is no law against using a flask for water or some other type of drink that doesn’t require refrigeration.
