3. A Comedy Show
Studying can be mentally draining. Take your soon-to-be-lawyer friend out to a comedy show or send them a funny meme to take their mind off of studying, if even for a moment!
There are times in life when friends need friends' support. Studying for the bar exam is definitely one of those times. Check-in with your friend regularly with encouraging words. A phone call, a quick Facetime, and even a text message can go a long way.

7. Noise-Cancelling Headphones
When you're studying for the bar exam, it's always good to have the option to block out any background noise that's out of your control such as air conditioning, noisy neighbours, and parking dogs.
8. A Massage
Constantly sitting at your desk to study for the bar exam, can have a really negative impact on your back. To alleviate any back pain and reduce back tension, gift your friend a trip to a spa to get a deep-tissue massage.
There's a good chance your soon-to-be-lawyer friend is staying up late and waking up early to study. Gift them some high quality coffee or a gift card to their favourite coffee shop to fuel their energy.
