Law Enforcement Officer Gift Guide
Christmas is coming up -fast! And it can be hard enough to buy for the man in your life, sometimes harder when they're a cop. Why? Because they don't tend to have a ton of time for hobbies 😅 I constantly struggle to come up with gift ideas for my husband because he loves his job, is good at his job, and doesn't do much else. Lol any one else have this problem? No, just me?
Well even if it is just me sometimes it can be daunting to figure out gifts for cops; I mean what should I get them anyhow? So I've compiled a list of fun gift ideas for cops ranging from small to large. Hopefully you'll find something that fits your budget here!

The Big Stuff
Sometimes you want to go all out and get something BIG. Maybe it's your 10 year wedding anniversary, or his 10th year on the job; whatever the occasion sometimes you just need to make a big statement. These gift ideas may be large in size and/or large in budget, but they're sure to thrill the cop in your life!
Warrior Rack - This bad boy is perfect for a law enforcement officer! It'll make life easier and safer for everyone. If you've never heard of a Warrior Rack before you can check them out here!
Tactical Clothing - Good tactical gear is not cheap. And I mean that in all sincerity. So if you're looking to gift the cop in your life quality gear make sure it's just that; quality!
Guns - I don't really feel I need to add anything to this one. Lol
Gun Safe - Every cop wants a nice gun safe; one because they care about gun safety and two because they love having a place to put all their loot! So if you're looking for an awesome gift idea for cops make sure to research gun safes!
Secret Gun Storage - Ever seen those shelves, desks, tables, beds, etc that have built in hide-a-gun storage? Yeah. Let's just say my LEO was geeking out over them.
Massage Chair - Not that this wouldn't be nice for everyone in your family, but having a special chair to help your man unwind is a great gift idea for cops!
Cop Caddy - These gear stands can be personalized with last name, badge number, etc if desired.
Custom Holster - Again, every cop loves his gun, why not have a custom holster made for him?
Watch - One of the first things my husband bought when he became a cop was a really nice watch; he utilizes it daily so it's been a great investment!
Thin Blue Line Wooden Flag - I bought my husband a gorgeous wood flag to hang on the wall that had a thin blue line stripe; he loves it!
Gift Ideas for Cops that won't Break the Bank
Good gifts don't have to cost a million dollars. Some of the best gifts are practical, yet wonderful!
Retro 51 Tornado Rollerball Pen - Or in other words just get the dude a really nice pen. Cops use their pens a lot, get him something smooth, customized, and fun to add to his uniform!
Patrol Car Organizer - Cops have lots of gear that needs to stay organized; having a convenient caddy really helps!
Back Massage Seat for their Personal Vehicle - They go through a lot during each shift; give them a way to unwind on their ride home!
New Duty Boots - This one seems kind of boring, but cops often wear their shoes right into the ground and are loathe to go buy a new pair; get them something that will have them thinking of you with every step!
Engraved Knife - Most men love knives and cop are no different; make this gift special by getting it personalized!
Portable Coffee Maker - My husband works nights in a small town; fresh food and coffee is hard to find. I can't even tell you how many times he has lamented that fact to me. So how amazing would it be to make coffee on the go with your own portable coffee maker!?
Boot Warmer Rack - My husband has one and uses it daily to dry out/warm his boots!
Foot Massager - And I'm not just talking about one of those little roller balls; I mean go all out and get a sit-in-a-chair-and-put-your-feet-in-this-bad-boy foot massager! Something to really help them relax and take a load off.
Personalized Yeti - Again with the coffee but we all know cops love their coffee; so make it special -and help keep it warm!- with a personalized Yeti!
