Is there a lawyer on your shopping list? If I’m anything like other attorneys, we’re a hard group to shop for. So I picked out a few things you might consider for the lawyer on your Christmas list.
Chopsticks in your pocket
To start off this list, here’s a cool set of chopsticks for Chinese-food-loving attorneys. Long nights of document review inevitably end up in Chinese take out. But now you can eat in style!
Unscrew the end of the chopstick, and you can slide the white ash tip out. Flip it around, screw it into the base, and you’re ready to eat. Cool, right?
Cold drinks at hand
Since lawyers work long hours with little sleep, it’s vital to have cold drinks and snacks handy. This spiffy mini-fridge does just that.
This fridge is whisper quiet, and it has a cool digital display that shows the current temperature. It cools to 44 degrees and warms to 140. It’s got a 20 liter capacity, and it comes with adapters for your home and car.
Don’t be late
As an attorney, you’ve got meetings with clients and court appearances to make. The Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock will make sure you’re up right on time.
It’s got two separate 7-day alarm schedules (one for you and your spouse), along with another set of every-day alarms. Altogether, it has 21 alarms! And you get to pick from 4 buzzers or 20 preset radio stations. Or you can plugin your MP3 player and wake up to any song you choose. To keep that iPod charged, the Neverlate has a USB port on the back. What else could you want?!
Warm coffee & cold tea
I hate it when my coffee gets hold. And nobody likes drinking iced tea when it gets hot. That’s why you need this USB drink warmer & chiller. Plug it into your computer, and you’ll have every drink at the perfect temperature. Plus, the slick black color will look cool on your desk.
Where’s your sign?
Doesn’t everyone need a cheesy street sign? Lawyers now have their very own! You might not want to put this in your office, but it would be good decor in the garage or workshop.
A bag for everything
The days of hard-sided briefcases are gone. But respectable attorneys still need a stylish bag for carrying around the essentials.
Here’s a Kenneth Cole Reaction messenger bag that is built from full grain Nappa leather. The flap is held shut with magnets, so the inside is easy to access. And it looks cool!
Keep it warm
It’s important for attorneys to dress nicely. You can’t expect clients or the court to treat you seriously if you look like a college kid.
This slick wool overcoat will look great with all your suits. And it will keep you warm during even the coldest winter days. Bundle up in this coat and you’ll be ready for action!
Phones are a lawyer’s lifeline to the world. With them, we talk to clients, judges, and colleagues. Without phones, we’re nothing but a fancy suit.
To make those hours on the phone easier, get the lawyer on your gift list an awesome wireless headset. This Plantronics model even comes with a remote handset lifter. Life without wires is so beautiful!
Don’t waste paper
Like all professionals, lawyers are busy people. And we have lots of notes to make. But that takes lots of paper. No longer!
This cool desktop writeboard (formerly “Jot It”) by Cocoa Living gives you a slick whiteboard surface for your desktop. It has an interchangeable, customizable card that helps organize your notes. And the writeboard even has a tray in the back for storing your dry-erase marker!
