With the festive season fast approaching, here are five recommended Christmas gifts for the crypto fanatic in your life.
While an actual blue chip NFT likely costs more than you’d want to spend on a gift, a piece of official merchandise is sure to impress a budding NFT collector. High-end collections such as Bored Ape Yacht Club and Pudgy Penguins have their own official merch, including hoodies, caps, bags, and phone cases.
If you’re looking for something more unique or from a collection that doesn’t have an official merch store, check out Etsy for more NFT-themed gift ideas such as canvas prints and pin badges.
Crypto Coin Display
Ever get annoyed by that friend who can’t stop checking the prices of their crypto bags? A Crypto Coin Display could be the perfect gift for them. Price displays come in various makes and models and can be programmed to show virtually any crypto asset and its 24-hour price change.
Some of the fancier displays are themed around specific coins such as Chainlink and Ripple, allowing devotees to display their allegiance to their digital assets of choice.
While not technically a crypto gift, these super-dense tungsten cubes have become a meme hit in crypto circles over the last few months. A tungsten cube is a timeless gift for any crypto meme lord as a paperweight or just a unique ornament. Midwest Tungsten is the go-to place for cubes, selling a range of sizes from the modestly priced 1cm cube all the way up to a hefty 41 pound, four-inch block.
If a 41-pound tungsten cube seems tame, Midwest Tungsten auctioned off an NFT for the visiting rights to a 14.5 inch, 2,000-pound cube housed at the company’s headquarters earlier in the year, with the winning bid of 56.9 ETH placed by TungstenDAO.
Crypto Christmas Sweater
Who can say no to the classic Christmas Sweater? This sweater from Notjust is made from 100% recycled materials, and the company donates 50% of the profits to mental health charities. The site also lets customers pay using several different cryptocurrencies, making it easier to splash out on those you love.
If the “Cryptmas” design isn’t to your taste, but you like the idea, check out Etsy for more crypto-themed, festive sweaters.
Help your crypto friends achieve peace of mind this Christmas by getting them set up with a hardware wallet. A must-have for any crypto investor, a hardware wallet helps protect your assets with an additional layer of security.
Crypto Briefing’s wallet of choice is the Ledger Nano X. It’s Bluetooth-enabled, sleek, and easy to use, letting anyone take complete control of their crypto assets. If you’re buying one as a gift, make sure you purchase from the official website—ones from third-party retailers have been known to be tampered with to steal assets when connected.
