The days leading up to Christmas are fewer and fewer, and many are already panicking that they have no idea what gifts should they get for their friends and family. For those of you that are having issues finding the perfect Bitcoin gifts for your crypto enthusiast friends, we have put together a list with some items they might like to receive as presents.
If your friend has expressed his concerns about the security issues of the crypto world, then put his mind at ease by getting him one of the most secure forms of storage for digital assets.
A hardware wallet is a physical cryptocurrency wallet that keeps the user’s private keys in a hardware device. Compared to software or web wallets, they are practically invulnerable to hacks. The most recommended two products from this category are Ledger Nano X and Trezor Model T, but you can also opt for their older models Ledger Nano S and Trezor Model One, as they are much more affordable.
Books About Bitcoin and Crypto
Knowing the ins and outs of the crypto and blockchain is sometimes difficult on your own, and scouring the many blogs and articles available online can be tiresome. Why not get a book that covers all the aspects in-depth?
Andreas Antonopoulos, a prominent figure in the industry and a well-known blockchain educator, has written a series of books available both in paperback and ebook format. His book “Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain” features a comprehensive glossary of blockchain lingo and explains how bitcoin came about and its underlying functions. This book is also great for those that want to learn the coding aspects of blockchain.
Of course, there are many other books that are about bitcoin, such as “Early Bird Gets The Bitcoin” by Andrew K. Courey, “Bitcoin For Dummies” by Prypto, “Bitcoin From Beginner To Expert” by Christian Newman, and “Bitcoin: The Ultimate Guide to the World of Bitcoin” by Ikuya Takashima.
Even if not the most exciting of Bitcoin gifts, socks are definitely the most classic of Christmas gifts. You can buy online various sock models that feature the Bitcoin logo on them. They come in a variety of colors, material blends, and lengths, so you will never be short of options.
If your friend loves both fashion and bitcoin, then why not get a clothing item that reflects their passion. There are a variety of shirts and pants that can be purchased from different sites.
One popular model features the bitcoin logo stylized on NASA t-shirts. Of course, you can also go for a Bitcoin hoodie for the ultimate Mr.-Robot-Hacker- vibe.
You may not have the money to buy your friends bitcoin, but you could get them an ASIC mining rig to help them mine their own BTC. Bitmain, Halong, GekkoScience, Pangolin, Baikal, Ebang, and Canaan are all popular mining hardware producers, and their product line includes some of the best AISC miners for bitcoins.
If ASIC miners are a present that goes way over your budget, then you could get a graphics card from AMD or Nvidia as a gift. Graphics cards have the ability to mine various coins, but for bitcoin mining, the profits will be made much slower, as they have less computational power than ASICs. But, if the person you are giving this present to is not into serious mining, it should suffice.
The graphics card can also be used to upgrade the power of your computer when playing games, so it’s sort of a two-in-one gift.
For those who love to accessorize their outfit, there are a variety of Bitcoin-themed items that can be used to style up an outfit.
There are belt buckles made out of stainless steel, vintage bitcoin watches with genuine leather, cufflinks, ties, hats, and all sorts of other items that will enhance the style of the wearer.
One of the most expensive Bitcoin gifts on our list is jewelry. You can find rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings featuring the Bitcoin logo in various styles and designs. They can come in gold, silver, copper-toned, and in all sorts of shapes and sizes, be it dainty or chunky.
Of course, such jewelry is not only reserved for the ladies of the crypto revolutions; there are also many options for men.
If you are looking for something more fun and lighter, then an educational card game about bitcoin is a great option. Each card of the game features facts about bitcoin, and it is a great way of getting everyone to interact at Christmas parties.
For those looking to play more serious games, there are card games with Bitcoin with which you can play poker or blackjack. Why play a game of poker with spades, hearts, diamonds, or clubs, when you can get a royal flush with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and NEO?
