Before e-gift cards, available online at a variety of sites, there were credit card-like gift cards. Before gift cards came gift certificates, often handwritten. They were valid, almost exclusively at restaurants, and movie theaters. Now, a lawyer is offering divorce gift certificates, according to a July 12, 2012 Huffington Post article.

Giving gifts gives great joy to attorney Loinnie Dorfus. His firm sells gift certificates in $500 denominations, all the way up to $100,000!

Most of the recipients of these gift cards, the first of their kind in the world, are given to male clients. According to the lawyer, some recipients cry out of joy when friends think about them during their divorce process and help them out by purchasing a divorce gift certificate.

Nevertheless, the gift certificates are not popular with everyone–a woman has picketed outside of the lawyer’s office in opposition of the divorce certificates. In the words of the attorney, she feels they are in “bad taste.”
