Friday 5: Holiday Gifts for Lawyers
It’s time to think about holiday gifts for your favorite attorney! Save the neckties and desk clocks for Father’s Day: treat the lawyers on your list with one of these clever items and you’re sure to be the hero of the holiday party. (Not quite what you’re looking for? You can find more ideas in our previous holiday gift list and our locally made gift list.)
This festively decorated tree includes everything you need to get into the holiday spirit. The 20” tree is pre-lit and includes six glass lawyer Santas, six wooden gavels, six glass law books, and six metal scales of justice, plus a Lady Justice topper and a red tree skirt. Your decked-out desk will be the envy of the office!
Lady Justice Menorah, $160
A large laser-cut Lady Justice sits inside this welded-metal circular menorah, measuring 13.5″ x 5″ x 3.5″. Sculptor Gary Rosenthal says his inspiration comes from the rich history of the Jewish people, which says it’s a blessing — a mitzvah — to make beautiful, functional art.
ABA Wine Club, $69 and up
Here’s a different kind of bar: the American Bar Association wine club. Memberships start at $69/month, and non-ABA members are also welcome to join (at slightly higher rates). Tasting notes and food pairings help you make the most of each month’s curated selection.
Whether you want to defend your Fourth Amendment rights or you’re just working on your reputation as the neighborhood grouch, this doormat will let unannounced visitors know where they stand — literally. It’s probably unnecessary to add “A Lawyer Lives Here.”
Take the stress out of decision-making when you let this paperweight do the hard work for you. Give the wheel a spin, and it will choose from options such as “Not Guilty,” “Settle,” or “Ask Mom.” A fun gag gift — and hey, it never hurts to get a second opinion.
