Safe Seed Mnemonic
If you’ve been in the crypto space for a while, you’ve probably heard many horror stories about people who forgot their cryptocurrency wallet passwords or seed phrases and lost access to their coins. Well, that’s where Cryptosteel comes in. This is a physical, stainless steel system for storing your private keys or wallet seed phrase.
Using a series of metal plates that cover all Ascii printable characters, you can store your own custom keys or seeds inside of a steel tube, which then itself can be locked away safely. The device is designed to withstand temperatures of up to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit, and comes with a tamper-evident seal for maximum protection! If this gift is for someone who prioritizes security, you just might have a winner here.
Bitcoin Inspired Watches
Maybe the Bitcoin fan in your life is also a fan of style. What better way to showcase both your love for cryptocurrency and still maintain a classy look, than to sport a bitcoin themed wristwatch? There is a variety available, for example, some of the premier offerings from Cryptomatic. These watches are of exceptional quality, and sport powerful but subtle Bitcoin logos imbued into their design.
Cryptocurrency Themed Jewelry
If the cryptocurrency user in your life also enjoys wearing jewelry, then don’t worry, Etsy has you covered. As you may expect, there are pages and pages of necklaces, rings, and other trinkets that are fashioned with the Bitcoin logo or other cryptocurrency symbols. This can be a great way to add a subtle hint of decentralized asset support to your daily style, and there are offerings to fit all types of price ranges. From costume jewelry to classy accents, this collection should have something for everyone.
Physical Cryptocurrency Coins
While there is no need for Bitcoin or any cryptocurrency to be minted in the form of an actual coin made from precious metals, that hasn’t stopped companies from offering them. One of the more popular offerings comes from a company named Denarium. Here you can find a wide variety of physically real coins that act as a form of cold storage wallet for your Bitcoin.
Various types of coins exist and come in Gold, Silver, and Bronze formats. The latest stock is always changing so be sure to check them out if this sounds like something that may make the perfect stocking stuffer for your crypto loved ones!
This gift idea is somewhat of a no-brainer gift for any cryptocurrency user who doesn’t already have one. Hardware wallets provide a convenient way to safely keep your assets stored offline but are still pretty easy to access when necessary.
Subscription to TradingView
If your crypto enthusiast is also a trader, as many are, then they may just appreciate a paid subscription to a charting website such as TradingView. TradingView offers a wide array of asset markets to track, not just cryptocurrency. Furthermore, it offers an impressive suite of tools and indicators that can help traders get the most out of analyzing the market.
Now it’s true that the free plan does offer all of these basics, but the Pro plan goes beyond this with additional indicators, even more markets to explore, the ability to have multiple charts up at the same time, and much more. If the person you’re shopping for this holiday season is serious about trading, then this is a solid choice for a great gift.
One of the places that Bitcoin and other cryptos have definitely prospered is in the art world, and not just as a means to purchase. Cryptocurrency themed art is highly popular in certain circles, and getting a painting, poster, or another piece that promotes the use of Bitcoin will surely be a welcome gift for anyone who appreciates digital assets and art.
There are many outlets available online, but you could start by checking out CryptoArt, a website dedicated to just this type of unique decoration. And yes, they accept both traditional credit/debit cards, as well as cryptocurrency through CoinPayments.net!
Digital Land/Digital Items/NFT’s
Building off of the Cryptocurrency Art idea, there are in fact a wide array of digital “items” that can be bought or sold and are backed up by cryptocurrency. Referred to as “Non-Fungible Tokens,” or NFTs, these can range from digital images, such as art, to collectible assets akin to trading cards, to items that can be used in video games, and even virtual land in a digital world like Decentraland.
Other games, such as the upcoming title The Sandbox, are powered by NFTs as well, so if your crypto fan is also a gamer, this may be a great way to bring both of their lives together this holiday season!
If the person you’re shopping for this year is trying to really get a solid understanding of how cryptocurrencies work, then perhaps buying them a book to walk through the finer points of this complex world could help. Books like Bitcoin for Dummies, The Bitcoin Standard, and Mastering Bitcoin all can be very useful in explaining how this new frontier is going to change finance forever.
Of course, there is literature that goes beyond just Bitcoin, so depending on who you are shopping for you may want to take their preferences into account, but these books are a great starting point for anyone trying to understand decentralized assets.
This could be a bit “on the nose,” but what cryptocurrency fanatic doesn’t want even more crypto? You could go out of your way to expose someone to a new asset they don’t already have, or simply get them more of whichever one they already love. You could even couple this with the above mentioned physical coins or hardware wallet.
Seeing as most users of digital assets believe they will continue to appreciate well into the future, this really could be the ultimate gift that keeps on giving. Either way, it’ll show the person you love that you care about their financial future.
Interested traders should trade often and hit around 200k trading volume.
Hopefully, this list has given you some solid ideas to work with for this holiday shopping season. There’s really no shortage of cryptocurrency-themed swag available out there from a wide variety of sources, so if you don’t see a perfect idea here, it is likely out there waiting to be found. Fortunately, every day there are more cryptocurrencies out there, and hence more products promoting them being created. In many ways, this is the best Christmas ever to be a Bitcoin user, and future years only stand to get even better!
