It’s holiday season, which means low-vibration records, aunties in the shade, walks with your favorite cousin and, of course, quality time with loved ones. But before you can enjoy all the benefits, you need to do your Christmas shopping. Not all gifts are created equal, especially when it comes to blessing your Web3 crazy friends. But what gift says “I love you and I don’t think Web3 is a complete scam”? Welp, I’m here to share with you some gift ideas that will surely show off your BULLISH spirit for the holidays.

Let’s start with a few old stalwarts. Bitcoin comes first. I know you’re probably thinking, “people still buying this?” Yes, it’s a classic yet thoughtful gift to give your partner the opportunity to purchase the items they’re passionate about in the Web3 space . It’s Web3’s gift card and super easy to buy. You can download the Coinbase app and buy bitcoin to send to your friend’s wallet, or you can just send it to them through the Cash app – your choice. Another cryptocurrency you might want to consider is Ethereum, especially if the person you’re gifting this to is really into buying NFTs. Nine times out of ten, they’ve been eyeing a digital work by their favorite artist or saving money to join an exclusive community. In any case, adding them to their stash will help them achieve their goal. You can buy ETH directly through MetaMask with Apple Pay and then simply transfer it to your friend’s wallet using their public address.

Another foolproof gift for buying your WAGMI friend is a ledger, a hardware wallet that can be used to protect your crypto and NFTs from potential hacks. Think of it as the USB backup device for Web3. It keeps your private keys – think of it as your credit card PIN number – in a safe place and offers complete separation from potential smartphone and blockchain transaction hacks. You can buy one from ledger.com, and they have different colors, styles, sizes, and storage space to choose from depending on your needs. They are currently offering $30 worth of free bitcoins with your purchase.

Well ladies, if you’re looking to get something more customized for your Metaverse man, I highly recommend checking out NBA Top Shot. It’s an NFT marketplace where you can buy snaps of NBA highlight moments that your partner can own forever. These moments can be based on a player, a specific team, a fan interaction, or a play in basketball history. First, go to NBATopShot.com and look for the latest Hot Packs they are releasing. Next, search for your husband’s favorite player, and then his favorite team (because his favorite player isn’t usually even on his favorite team). Each NBA top-shot moment has different tiers ranging from common and fanbase to rarity and everything in between. The site also has badges associated with the moments that correlate with specific players including three-star rookie and MVP. You can buy one using a range of cryptocurrencies or your credit card. You have many to choose from so make sure you search for his favorite jersey, write down the last name and team and then go shopping.

Guys, I haven’t forgotten you guys! What better way to show your wife that you care about her this holiday season than by treating her to some shopping in the Metaverse? There are brands like H&M and Bloomingdale’s that have digital stores where shoppers can try on clothes virtually and even have physical items shipped direct from the comfort of their own homes. Anyone can buy clothes for their wife, but the real flex is in the metaverse.

Web3 has something for the kids too – VeeFriends. VeeFriends is an NFT project curated by Gary Vee, which consists of drawings of cartoon characters. It allows its community certain perks like access to private events and meet and greets. Vee recently partnered with Toys “R” Us to bring the VeeFriend characters to life. You can buy them from the famous Macy’s toy store, or buy the digital asset directly from the VeeFriends website instead. You’re gifting your child a toy to love along with a digital asset to keep forever.

We can’t forget Roblox tokens. We all know kids are obsessed with this game, and they probably use your credit card for it anyway. Why not buy them some tokens so they can not only enjoy their favorite games but also subconsciously learn about the metaverse as they play? Now, some people may say that Roblox isn’t a metaverse, but if you look at it, it is my previous article that describes the definition and story, it fits the script. Whatever your attitude, discuss it with your awesome aunt because it fits on my list.

I want to leave you with one last gift for the whole family to enjoy: Meta Quest. It’s a VR headset from Meta that lets you experience different worlds from parties to parks – all virtually. You can buy it from Meta.com, and they even have Black Friday deals. This makes a great gift as there is something for every member of the family.

The holidays are a time to show the people you love the most how much you care for them. Do not allow the FTX scam or others Web3 drama stand in the way. Instead, use this list and choose the item that your favorite person will like the most. Don’t forget to tag me (@theashleyfrance) in the reaction videos as they open their unique Web3 gifts – I need all that holiday vibes. I hope you find this gift guide helpful in warming the hearts of your Web3 favorites. Happy Holidays!
