Still looking for those last-minute Christmas gifts?  The Supreme Court could be the one-stop shop you’re looking for.

Since its opening in 2009 the Supreme Court has been selling souvenirs to members of the public (as well as – presumably – appellants, respondents and their lawyers during breaks from hearings).  The pens, pencils, key rings and fridge magnets on offer in the Supreme Court make perfect stocking fillers.

christmas-fabric-decs-015There are also some specifically festive wares on offer: Christmas cards featuring the Supreme Court for 50p each or £2.00 for a pack of 10, as well as Christmas decorations (for a particularly judicial Christmas tree) – baubles bearing the Supreme Court logo are £5 each or £10 for 3.

If you had something a little more special in mind then read on, there really is something for every (lawyerly) person in your life…

There’s the teddy bear called Toffee (£18) for the little lawyers of the future; notebooks (£8.50) for the budding law school student; a mug (£12) which is sure to make everyone in the office jealous; a tie (£29) or cufflinks (£15) for those extra important meetings; canvas shopping bags (£7) to carry piles of documents; and an umbrella (£25) which is always useful for a wintery London day, plus much more.img_8721-minSo head to the Supreme Court, open 9.30am to 4.30pm until Friday, where you’ll find the full range of gifts in the café on the lower ground floor.
