Gift for New JD
« on: April 07, 2009, 04:39:31 PM »
Hello!

My wife will soon be graduating from law school.  I'd like to get her a nice graduation present, but I'm not sure what might be appropriate.  Are there any traditional new lawyer gifts?

Thank you!

Honestly?  Not really.  Most of the obvious ones are boring and impersonal...Try to get her something that matches her personality more, IMHO.

Take her on a vacation.  Most law students are exhausted from this three year marathon.

Seriously, when she comes home, just be like, "Pack your bags.  We're going to Bermuda for a week!"

uh huh.

That's pretty much what my husband did for me for my graduation gift.  He was as much a participant in the law school experience as I was, so he needed the vacation, too.

I think the brief case is traditional... but the vacation sounds like something she would appreciate more.

I'd love to join this LGBT club.  It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right?  I'll show up with an armful of toys.

This is a great idea. She'll need it too, because she'll be taking bar review almost immediately.

I would schedule the vacation for after the Bar.  You can give her the brochures/tickets/whatever at graduation.

The briefcase is most traditional.

Oh please, Rolex is the IKEA of high end watches. That wouldn't be a gift, it would be an insult.
