Forget Siblings Day, Bat Appreciation Day, and even Arbor Day. Tomorrow, Tuesday the 12th, we celebrate April's best holiday: Be Kind to Lawyers Day. So stop complaining about your boss, your colleagues, or your spouses' divorce attorney -- for a day, at least.

If you're looking for a way to express your attorney appreciation, we've got you covered. Here are five great gifts for the attorneys in your life.

1. Something to Sip

What better way to show a lawyer you care than with a nice bottle of whiskey or wine. And if you're too busy to drop off a bottle of Bordeaux or single malt yourself, there are plenty of booze delivery apps and services that will be able to help you out. It sure beats sending over an edible arrangement.

2. Supreme Court Swag

If you want to add a little personality to a legal office, the Supreme Court Historical Society has you covered. (Yelp, SCHS does more than just preserve the history of the Supreme Court. It's also got a great gift shop.) Show a lawyer you care with 14-karat SCOTUS cufflinks, a John Marshall necklace, or a statue of Lady Justice.

3. Legal Literature

Speaking of the Supreme Court, it's been a great year for SCOTUS literature. Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out, turning the Internet meme into an actual book worthy of not just a read, but a prominent place on your shelf. And you can place it right next to Justice Breyer's new book on American and international law, or any of the 17 other SCOTUS-related literary releases from the past year.

4. Court Verdict Wall Plaque

Want to commemorate a colleague's victory? Put it on a memorial plaque. For Counsel, a company that makes gifts for lawyers, offers a commemorative verdict plaque, allowing you to show off your wins on your office wall.

5. A Coloring Book

Adult coloring books are in, so much so that there's a global shortage of colored pencils. For stressed out professionals, a quick break to color can be shockingly satisfying. And there's a host of adult-focused books out there, from popular botanically-themed coloring books, to irreverent swear word coloring books, and even a (free and very funny) lawyer-themed coloring book.
