Police officers spend their careers protecting and serving others. The time, responsibilities and dangers of the job make it an occupation often considered noble. If you are celebrating a police officer or wanting to give a special gift of thanks, it is a thoughtful option to consider gifts that either honor the individual or offer the chance to relax or escape from the stresses of the job.
Thank You Treats
A large part of a police officer's job is working to make the community safer. Thus, one gift is to say thanks. Do so with a surprise dinner outing, gathering the officer's closest friends and family. If you would rather keep it simple, then instead present the officer with a gift certificate to a readily-accessible sandwich shop, coffee shop or bakery.
Badge of Honor
Present the officer with another badge--one recognizing all the hard work. Have it made at a novelty shop. You can also have a certificate or award created, or perhaps a special plaque you can have engraved. If you wish to order on-line, two options are PersonalizationMall.com or Redenvelope.com.
Give the gift of relaxation to help the officer unwind after a hard day. Pay for a massage at the spa or purchase an at-home pedicure kit so feeling better is always available. If you don't have a lot to spend, purchase an instrumental CD or a stress toy that can easily fit in the pocket.
