Sure it’s nice to drink Starbucks everyday, but that can get real costly. Law students and attorneys drink a lot of coffee. An excellent, low-cost gift idea for a law student or an attorney is a coffee maker. We recommend the Black & Decker DCM675BF 5-Cup Drip Coffee Programmable Maker with Permanent Filter. The coffee maker is available from Buy.Com for around $30.00. We like this coffee maker because it’s programmable and has a permanent filer. It’s also small and compact.
