The best Valentine's gift for an ideal law student

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Stumped for ways to show your favourite law student some love? Here are the best five valentines gift for the ideal law student. 

Coffee machine 

No law student can survive or function properly without their caffeine fix, be it from Starbucks or Pret. How else will they be able to stay up until 4am and still make their 9am lecture? An ideal law student would save a ton of money if they had their own coffee machine, thus making it the perfect gift for Valentine's. If you don't want to splash out on a machine, you can get them a reusable cup at their favourite coffee shop (this way they can save money whilst being eco-friendly - win-win!). 

AirPods 

With these noise-isolating AirPods, a studious law student can listen to lecture capture or the latest LCN Podcast episode in a busy library or coffee shop - all hands free! The sound quality of the audio is amazing and the fact that it’s wireless means they don’t have to spend ages untangling!

Rechargeable book light 

The average law student reads hundreds of texts every day. All the reading and writing can lead to eye strain or worse. With a small portable light, they can read anywhere, be it in poorly-lit law library, or in bed at night without disturbing others. This is probably one of the smartest gifts to get a law student because it fills a purpose and they won’t expect it!

Trials of the State by Lord Sumption

You may think the last thing a law student wants as a Valentine's gift is another book, but I’d recommend buying them a copy of this bestseller. It discusses the controversial debate of UK judges becoming too enmeshed in the process of making the law, rather than upholding it. It’s a hot topic about whether judges have expanded their role from interpreting the legislation to writing words into statutes - which some see as usurping the function of parliament. Lord Sumption provides his clear-cut, refreshing opinion which makes for an interesting read.

Aromatherapy diffuser

The perfect gift for any stressed-out law student who needs a breather once in a while. Law school can get physically, mentally and emotionally draining. Sometimes your caffeine fix can’t fix your rising stress levels. An aromatherapy diffuser has several relaxation and health-related benefits. Not only does it help you sleep better, but it also provides instant stress relief. I used a diffuser throughout my LLB and it really made a difference in uplifting my moods. It served as the perfect pick-me-up when I was feeling sluggish or tired of land law. If you’d like to go the extra mile, purchase a range of essential oils to go with this gift!
