With 2020 being the year that it has been, it’s understandable that you might have let your holiday shopping slip under the radar. But don’t worry, we’ve rounded up some of the best gift ideas for crypto lovers in your life or to commemorate the Christmas that Bitcoin hit 20K!
First up, we have crypto wallets! As the value of your coins and tokens rise, so does the need to keep them safe. And as the saying goes, not your keys, not your coins. Both Ledger and Trezor have some great options for hard wallets. The Ledger Nano S is a favorite due to its small size and compatibility with a broad range of currencies including, BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, and more!
A comparable showing from Trezor is the Trezor Model T. With a full-color touchscreen and the option for microSD storage which makes it a veritable safe for over 1000 cryptocurrencies.
Books on Blockchains
Once you’re happy that your friends and family have a secure place to keep their cryptos, let’s start to make sure that they’ve got the knowledge needed to begin trading crypto and stacking those sats. We’ve taken the lead from the BookAuthority; they have a full list of the 9 best cryptocurrency books you can read in 2021. We have picked two books from the list that we think will make great reads over an unusual holiday period.
For newbies looking to get their foot in the door, we have “Cryptocurrency In A Nutshell” by Greg Somlok, a book that purports to help you understand both cryptocurrency and blockchain in a day!
For those who already know a little bit about trading but might like to learn more about the history of fiat and the future of crypto, “Money System Gone Insane” by Mr. Risto the Dragon Pietila is sure to hit the spot. A book that promises to change how you think about finances and the curse of debt.
Digital Art and NFT Tokens
For something a little less educational and more decorative, tokenized artwork is currently having its day thanks to non-fungible tokens. Online marketplaces like Rarible, opensea, and Nifty Gateway have a whole host of artwork up for sale. Now up for sale is a very Christmassy series of works titled “12 Days of Zombie Christmas” by Darren Kleine, with 80% of the profits going to benefit children’s charities. You can take a look or bid on the work here.
Clothes, mugs, bits and bobs
Of course, we can’t talk about crypto-related gifts without mentioning Etsy. From t-shirts to mugs to ties to socks, anything you could think of having your favorite coin represented on probably already exists. A personal favorite item is this credit card-sized seed phrase recovery card. Built from titanium, I can withstand temperatures of 1700C, and with the option to laser print your phrase for you, this handy item will provide you peace of mind when it comes to the risk of losing access to your BTC wallet.
