#2. A Pocket Blanket
It may not be spring yet but when the season is upon us, everyone would want to go on picnics. Of course, you could gift an attorney a giant blanket to keep in their car. However, how about gifting them a pocket blanket?
The Matador Pocket Blanket measures 63” x44” but folds into a tiny pouch. This blanket has built-in metal stakes and sand pocket corners.
#3. Make their Home Smarter
Is your lawyer friend looking for an easy way to do things automatically such as turn on and off the lights, control the sprinkler system, or feed their cat? If so, get them a smart home office device that will allow them to do all these things through their smartphone.

#4. A Tech Personal Assistant
You can also gift your attorney a (sort-of) personal assistant. Attorneys may not be considered tech-savvy but the future is here. If you know an attorney that is invested in the Amazon ecosystem, an Echo or a Dot gift would be ideal.
Tech devices are rated the best graduation gifts for lawyers.
#5. Maintain Sanity with Better Coffee
The coffee available at the lawyer’s office could be mundane or just terrible. Why not give your attorney a top-of-the-line OXO coffeemaker to ensure they have good coffee? If you are looking for low-cost coffee maker options, the Clever Dripper and AeroPress are excellent choices.
A coffee maker would be a great thank you gift for an attorney.
#6. Never Lose Your Keys
You may not easily lose your smartphone and thanks to apps like Find My Phone, it is easy to locate lost devices. However, when it comes to keys, things are a little different.
If your lawyer usually carries a bunch of keys, get him a four-pack of Tiles. These Bluetooth trackers slip inside your wallet and attach to your keys. If you are not sure where your keys are, you can “ring” your tile and the app will indicate where it was last “seen”.
For example, if the Tile is attached to your key, you can know where the Tile was last detected by the app, and in turn, find where your keys are.
#7. A Decent Lawyer Bag
Bags are excellent lawyer gifts for those who are just starting out in their lawyer career. The last thing you want is for them to carry a bulky messenger bag or a rugged backpack when going to court
Get your lawyer a Saddleback Leather and Samsonite briefcase. Laptop totes are also excellent gifts to consider. These bags make classy gifts for lawyers.
