It’s that time of the year again when everyone is in the holiday mood. With only a few days left before the Christmas holidays, everyone is busy decorating their house, planning parties and buying gifts for friends, family and acquaintances. Christmas shopping for your lawyer could increase the odds of better representation.
Here are 12 amazing Christmas gift ideas for attorneys.
Start off with an electronic Christmas card that you can customize and send through email for free. It is a great way to send personalized messages to your attorneys and wish them a Merry Christmas.
You have to admit legal pads are something every lawyer needs. You can find various types and sizes of legal pads available in the market, which can be bought at affordable price tags.
Bag of Carrots
Carrots are rich in Vitamin A, which is considered as a beneficial nutrition for good eyesight. Since your attorney needs to do a massive amount of reading, help improve your lawyer’s vision with a bag of carrots.
You never know when your lawyer might be found in contempt of court. If it doesn’t go over that well, at least you didn’t waste that much money on a bad joke.
In the current era of smartphones and tablets, calendars are no more considered as a must-have utility. However, gifting one law calendar is still not a bad choice. It’s not too hard to find a calendar that highlights all the “legal holidays.”
Bottle of Tums
To help relieve the stress that naturally comes with legal work, give your lawyer a bottle of antacids such as Tums. This gift would help them relieve work stress and stay healthy.
Just to make sure your attorney has access to the U.S. Constitution at all times, buy an advanced Constitution App for their smartphone.
Lawyers sometimes need a break from seriousness. Consider the humorous free App America’s Weird Laws!!! by Michael Quach, available on Amazon.
Serious Law Book
To create some balance, include a more serious legal resource, such as Law 101 by Jay Feinman, which covers everything an American lawyer should know.
Bottle of Wine
Give your lawyer a hint you expect more celebrations following court appearances. However, gifting a bottle of wine to someone who doesn’t prefer drinking would be a blunder mistake.
If you can influence your lawyer to replace a backpack with a briefcase, you might strengthen his or her track record in court. Don’t consider buying a cheaper one with poor quality.
A suit is an excellent reminder for your lawyer not to show up to court in jeans and a T-shirt. Make sure you know their exact size before buying one. Remember, quality matters here as well.
These were the top 12 amazing Christmas gifting ideas which you can consider for your attorney. There are various other options available, which may vary as per your budget and taste.
