Appellate lawyer-blogger Howard Bashman recommends, at this Law.com story, a few gift ideas for the appellate lawyer--two of which seem to be transferable to other lawyers and legal historians too. One is a subscription to the Supreme Court law journal The Green Bag, which traditionally includes a sports-illustrated-like subscription prize of a bobblehead doll of one of the Justices. (The Annotated Justice Anthony Kennedy [right] is the current model, says its website, which also has a store.)
The second such idea is membership to The Supreme Court Historical Society. Membership has its rewards. They include the glossy magazine-like Journal of Supreme Court History. The website has a nice on-line gift shop, too, featuring a 2006 ornament. I doubt the shop includes bobbleheads, but you never know what other artifacts and memorabilia you'll find there for the unusual gift idea, beyond membership (think pewter, paperweights, bookends, ties, scarves, scales, mugs, and history books for young adults [with no mention of The American Girls]). Something for everyone on your holiday to-do list.
