Friday 5: Valentine’s Gifts Lawyers will Love
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Stumped for ways to show your favorite lawyer some love? Here are 5 (okay, 6) can’t-miss suggestions for your shopping list.
Chocolate Gavel and Scales of Justice ($10) – Justice is sweet when it’s made from rich, creamy chocolate. This 7-oz. gift set includes a gavel and a scales-of-justice seal, in your choice of milk, dark, or white chocolate. An undoubtedly tasteful gift.
Bamboo Block Art ($25) – Add some flair to the office with a bit of charming, Washington-themed art, like this picture of a neon sign featuring a dancing couple, taken in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Photographs are mounted on hand-sanded bamboo blocks, perfect for displaying on a desk or hanging on a wall. Choose your favorite, or assemble a set for a uniquely local arrangement.
Valentine’s Day Cards (starting at $3) – Shop local and support a Washington small business with these pretty handmade Valentine’s cards, embellished with ribbons and fabric. Most are blank inside for your handwritten sentiments. I like the Tree of Love and 3-D cupcake card.
Love Knot Sculpture ($15) – Handmade by artisans in Kenya, this red African soapstone love knot figure represents the bond between loved ones. This ancient symbol makes for stylishly bold décor for a bookshelf or desk, or you can put it to work holding down some hard-to-love paperwork.
Barrister Winery Red Wine ($19 and up) — Make a toast to the legal profession with a bottle from Washington’s Barrister Winery. Based in Spokane and owned by two lawyer-winemakers, Barrister specializes in reds, like their popular “Rough Justice” red blend. Great for a romantic dinner or to celebrate a professional milestone.
Personalized Collar Stays ($60) – This one is a bit of a splurge, but it’s guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind. A dozen stainless-steel collar stays (6 long, 6 short) can be customized with up to 12 different personal messages. (Though before you wander into NC-17 territory, be warned: “orders that use inappropriate language may be cancelled”). Last-minute shoppers, you’re in luck — save 20 percent with promo code SGIFTS20.
