‘Tis the season for gift-giving, stocking-stuffing, and making sure the special attorney in your life receives something great from Santa’s bag.
Although we can’t give our attorneys what they might really want; e.g. billable hours, adjournment, or a guilty or not-guilty verdict, we can give them gifts to otherwise brighten their holiday season.
From simple to significant, here are 10 gift ideas for attorneys.
1. Wine of the Month Club
Wine of the Month Club packages include 2 bottles of wine shipped to your attorney for as many months as you sign up—6 month and 1 year packages are the most popular. You can choose from classic series wine to limited series, depending on your budget.
2. Levenger Bomber Jacket Pocket Briefcase
Levenger’s Pocket Briefcase is great for attorneys taking notes on-the-go. It contains a built-in notepad and writing surface for 3×5 cards, pen sleeve, currency pocket, ID window, and passport holder. The pebbled leather jacket can also be personally monogrammed.
3. Vu-Point Magic Wand Portable Scanner
The Magic Wand is a hand-held, battery operated cordless scanner that can scan almost anything onto a microSD/SDHC card—including motions, tickets, case files, practice guides, and more. Images can be previewed on a color display, and it comes with a USB cable for printing.
4. Stump Your Lawyer! Game
The perfect gift for the attorney that thinks they know everything. This game asks witty and challenging questions that will make the know-it-all attorney think twice before answering.
A massage gift certificate is a great way to relax and reinvigorate your attorney. With franchise massage spas such as Massage Envy popping up all over the country, finding a local massage parlor is easy.
6. Event Tickets
Attorneys can get lost in their work and forget to plan fun things with family and friends, let alone search for them. Presenting paid tickets to a scheduled event like a sports game, concert, or comedy show relieves them of the time and energy spent finding these events on their own, and will give them something to look forward to.
7. iPod Touch
When it comes to business usage, most people think of the iPhone and iPad, but the iPod Touch boasts most of the same features for less money.
The iPod touch supports the same multi-touch-driven OS interface and apps ecosystem, and includes Safari browser, calendar, mail, reminders, contacts, notes for email-synced note-taking, and videoconferencing to iCloud doc sharing capabilities.
8. Gift Cards
Gift cards may seem like impersonal gifts, but they’re not thoughtless ones if you get the right gift card. Your attorney is usually on the run, so convenient gift cards to stores such as Staples, Fedex or UPS stores, even restaurants for a quick bite, will be much appreciated.
9. A Work of Art
Attorneys spend hours in their offices. A work of art can change the atmosphere of an office, and can boost attorney morale.
Art work can range from simple, black and white photography to lively abstract pieces—so get creative and choose a piece that fits your attorney’s personality. Works of art can also veer into the thousands, so know your budget before you start shopping.
10. James Publishing Books
Yes, this may be a plug, but our books really make great gifts!

Hopefully these 10 gift ideas will help you find the perfect gift for the attorney(s) in your life. We wish you good luck and Happy Holidays!
