As the Christmas season approaches, you may be making lists for all the people in your life. If you have a lawyer in your life, shopping for them may be a challenge. What do you get for a current or aspiring lawyer?
Luckily, there are several gifts that can make a lawyer’s workdays cheerier. Read on to discover our top gifts for lawyers in 2023!
Focusing on day-to-day legal work can be difficult, especially if your favorite lawyer works from home. Noise-canceling headphones can help them stay on task and up their productivity. Look for a pair with a microphone so they can use them on their video calls.
Meal-Prep Service Subscription
Lawyers don’t have a lot of free time, especially at the beginning of their careers. They may be eating more fast food, takeout, and microwave meals than is really good for them. A meal-prep service subscription can make it a little easier for them to get a home-cooked meal in just a few minutes.
How much would you estimate your favorite lawyer spends on Starbucks every year? Staying caffeinated is the secret to success for many lawyers, but all those lattes can add up. An espresso machine can make it a little easier for them to get their caffeine fix at home.
Temperature Control Smart Mug
Another great way to upgrade your favorite lawyer’s coffee game is to get them a smart mug. These handy devices allow you to pick a temperature you’d like your drink to remain at and keep it there. No more having to microwave a cup of ice-cold coffee four times before you finish drinking it!
Home Office Greenery
One of the quickest ways to make an office cheerier is to add a plant. Snake plants, peace lilies, and succulents are all easy to care for and can liven up a space. And if your favorite lawyer really has a brown thumb, you can always get them a nice silk plant to provide the same effect!
A little office decor can help to make your favorite lawyer’s workday a little happier. You could get them a nice piece of framed art or a customized name plate for their desk. You can also get them a piece of law-themed desk art, such as a set of miniature brass scales.
Smells Like You Passed the Bar Exam Candle
Candles are another fantastic way to make an office more homey. And a candle called “Smells Like You Passed the Bar Exam” is the perfect piece of encouragement for a law student or congratulatory gift for a recent graduate. And some vendors will even let you pick your scent for this candle so you can get your lawyer’s favorite scent!
Cross-Cut Paper Shredder
These days, many lawyers are transitioning to a paperless setup, digitizing all their documents. But an essential part of this process is scanning in the paper forms they still have to deal with. A good scanner can make the digitization process easier and help your favorite lawyer work more efficiently.
Smart Reusable Notebook
Part of working as a lawyer means taking a lot of notes. And yes, your favorite lawyer could blow through normal composition notebooks like tissues, but why not help them work smarter? A smart reusable notebook will let them take all the notes they like, scan them into the cloud, and then wipe the notebook to use again.
During those meetings, your lawyer is going to need to keep a lot of files and paperwork organized. A leather portfolio can be a great way to help them stay organized and looking professional. And a personalized portfolio just adds an extra touch of class to their meetings.
Jeena Cho and Karen Gifford’s The Anxious Lawyer
Of course, books are always a fantastic Christmas gift. The Anxious Lawyer by Jeena Cho and Karen Gifford lays out an eight-week program focused on mindfulness and meditation and is focused on lawyers in particular. This book can help your loved one manage the stress of a legal career in a healthier way.
Kim Scott’s Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity
Oftentimes, lawyers wind up working as supervisors, often even running their own firms. And while law school can teach you to be a good attorney, it doesn’t teach you much about being a good boss. Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity by Kim Scott can help your lawyer learn how to foster an excellent workplace culture.
Jack Newton’s The Client-Centered Law Firm
Running a law firm is a tremendous challenge. The Client-Centered Law Firm by Jack Newton teaches lawyers how to run a successful firm while still delivering the best possible result for their clients. This book can help your favorite lawyer have the best chance of career success.
Michael H. Roffer’s The Law Book: From Hammurabi to the International Criminal Court, 250 Milestones in the History of Law
Although this book may not teach your favorite lawyer how to improve their practice, it can give them some important insights into the history of their career. And it’s a fascinating read whether or not you’re a lawyer. The Law Book: From Hammurabi to the International Criminal Court by Michael Roffer will become a staple on their coffee table.
