5 Gift Ideas for Nerdy Lawyers That Won't Break the Bank

If you can afford to get some of the latest greatest tech for the legal nerd in your life, they'll probably want that more than anything else. Think Google Glass, a new Apple Watch, or other fancy recently released tech.

But, if you're not looking to spend hundreds of dollars, there are some smaller gifts that nerdy or geeky lawyers are sure to delight in. Below, you'll find five gift suggestions that won't break the bank.

1. Funny Legal Mugs

If the lawyer you're shopping for has a coffee habit, maybe make it a bit more enjoyable for them with a silly legal themed coffee mug. The "disappearing rights" mug is a perpetual crowd pleaser. Or if they're ideology lands anywhere left of center, they'll surely love any of the many notorious RBG mugs.

2. Geeks Love Games

It's a rare thing to find a nerd/geek that doesn't delight in some form of gaming. Fortunately, there are countless of legal and lawyer themed games. A silly little favorite are the Legal Advice Dice (sold by the Carbolic Smoke Ball Co. --whose company name should provide a chuckle to lawyers). Better than desktop zen garden, these will bring some whimsy to the serious decisions that must be made in the office.

If you happen to be shopping for a diehard geek, consider some legal themed Lego sets (just maybe not that one).

3. Comic Book Related Office Supplies

While the comic book collecting may have ended well before law school (or not), nerds still have their favorite super heroes. After all, who doesn't need an official miniature replica of Wonder Woman's sword to use as a letter opener?

Or, if they've given up the 'toons for binge watching TV series', some Better Call Saul swag, or other lawyer TV related gear (think t-shirts, framed prints, or even signed memorabilia) can hit the mark.

4. "Trust Me, I'm a Lawyer"

Clothing and accessories emblazoned with the phrase "Trust Me, I'm a Lawyer" is actually a thing. If your nerdy lawyer likes making a joke of their attorney status, or actually likes getting random legal questions, one of the many available items that don this phrase will make a great gift.

5. Gifts Stink!

If you've never smelled Freshly Signed Divorce Papers, or a Restraining Order Ocean Breeze, this is your chance to do so, in candle form, thankfully. If your nerdy lawyer handles drunk driving cases, there's even a Smells like a DWI candle.

From one legal nerd to another, happy shopping!
