So Ive been working for a criminal defense attorney for two years .. I have been here for 2 of his birthdays and the 3rd one will be in about two weeks.
He always has a BBQ at his home and sends evites. I didnt go to the first one (I was too shy since I had only been here for about a month) and I didnt take a gift to the second one. I reeeaally want to take a gift this time. Even though on the evite it states NO GIFTS.. last year people brought gifts anyways.
& Ive also feel like its time to show some appreciation.
Now I am stuck and have NOOOOO clue what to get him. He is an attorney a new dad and originally from Nashville, TN.& of course Im not rich and fear that whatever I get him will be viewed as cheap?!

How about something job related? Maybe cuff links or a business card holder? I am really terrible with gift giving though… lol.

maybe a personalized card holder.. but even if he already has one on his desk?
ide be waaay to intimidated to get him cuff links since i know NOTHING about them

So… since it’s always a BBQ… and he’s from Nashville… I would say get him some BBQ sauce from a place in Nashville… If you have time, see if you can find out his favorite restaurant down there… I just did a google search for “BBQ in Nashville, TN” and the first one was Jack’s Bar-b-que. They have an online store with their own sauces… http://www.jacksbarbque.com
That way it’s right up his ally…it’s not too “gifty”… he’ll like it and know you’re paying attention! 🙂

Oh I love the BBQ sauce idea. It’s thoughtful yet not too over the top.
