If you have a friend or loved one who works in the law enforcement field, then you know what a stressful and dangerous job that he or she has. Honour and encourage the law enforcement officer who is making a difference in your life and in the lives of those living in your community by presenting him or her with a gift that uplifts and entertains.
Purchase a piece of apparel--such as a T-shirt, ball cap or track suit--with a personalised message related to working in law enforcement. Your friend or loved one can wear this clothing to relax. The message should encourage him in his work and make him feel good about the work that he does to protect the community. Some messages include the following: "Some heroes wear capes ... Mine wears Kevlar!" or "Best Police Officer in the World!"
Make your own chocolate candies in the shapes of handcuffs for a friend or loved one who is a law enforcement professional. Purchase candy materials and moulds from online vendors. There are moulds that make life-size handcuffs. Place the finished cuffs in a decorative candy box. This makes a unique gift for a law enforcer who has a sweet tooth.
Midnight Snack Box
Be more creative and encouraging than going with the stereotypical doughnut jokes. Instead, fill a basket or a decorative box with snacks that your law enforcer will enjoy on a late-night assignment. Fill the box with "midnight snacks" that will provide energy and are healthy but still yummy. Some examples include a bag of trail mix, high-energy protein bars, a chocolate bar and a few cans of his or her favourite soda.
Law Enforcement Party
Give a law-enforcement friend the gift of a themed surprise party in his or her honour. The party can be a "just because" party or can be held for a birthday or special event. Make the party unique by making or buying a three-dimensional cake in the shape of handcuffs, a police badge or a police car. Provide "COPS" novelty T-shirts and water guns as party favours for guests. Decorate with flashing police siren lights and play music by the band, The Police. Greet the birthday person with a message through a megaphone. A suggestion: "Surprise! Please put your hands up! You're under house arrest!"
