Chances are your presents are already bought, wrapped, and nestled firmly under the tree. But, if the festive season has escaped you thus far, check out these last-minute crypto Christmas gifts for the HODLer in your life.
Top crypto Christmas gifts for last-minute shoppers
1) Bitcoin socks
Available for both men and women, Bitcoin socks make the perfect stocking filler. They’re also sure to spark a conversation around the dinner table this Christmas.
Unlike other crypto Christmas gifts, you can choose from several designs available online – the easiest is through Amazon or eBay.
Fun and fashionable, Bitcoin socks will set you back less than £14, so you won’t break the bank. Unfortunately, you’ll have to pay in fiat currency – for now, anyway.
Get a pair here.
2) The Bitcoin Standard
Of all the books written on Bitcoin, Saifedean Ammous’ The Bitcoin Standard is certainly one to further your financial education.
While it’s a fascinating read, the book concentrates more on the history of money and Austrian economics than Bitcoin itself (just three of 10 chapters cover the number-one cryptocurrency).
TL;DR? Skip to the last three chapters if you want to delve right into Bitcoin. Even for the seasoned HODLer, it’s always good to brush up on Bitcoin’s core qualities.
The book costs £15 and, since it provides a holistic view of money, may even interest your Mum or Dad.

3) A cryptocurrency-themed mug
If you know your HODLer’s favourite coin, hop on over to Zazzle. It has an unsurpassed selection of Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, and Litecoin mugs (and many more).
They don’t come in cheap at between £15-20 for a bog-standard white chunky mug with a Bitcoin symbol. But hey, it’s novelty value you’re after.
With estimated delivery dates between December 24-30, get these crypto Christmas gifts for friends you’re meeting up with after the big day.
Otherwise, you can probably find one on Amazon cheaper and quicker.

4) Physical Bitcoin
Physical Bitcoin takes on many shapes and forms, from chocolate coins to solid silver and gold-plated coins.
There are even physical Bitcoins that have wallet functionality as well. But you should have been more organised if you wanted to scoop up one of those.
If you just want a little extra to make your loved one smile, this gold-plated physical Bitcoin can be yours delivered by December 21.

5) An online course
Of course, you may not know the level of your favourite HODLer’s cryptocurrency education, so choosing an appropriate course may be hard.
If you want to gift a Bitcoin fundamentals course, you probably can’t get better than the online University of Nicosia course taught by leading experts including Andreas Antonopoulos.
That one is free, though, so you may look a little cheap on Christmas Day. There are a plethora of options on sites like Udemy though, so you could either pick one or purchase a gift voucher.

Wrapping it up
There are a lot of gifts you could get for the HODLer in your life, but with just one week left to go until Christmas, time is of the essence.
Be wary of buying hardware wallets from online vendors that aren’t the official Ledger or Trezor sites. With so much crime in the industry, you don’t want to be responsible for your loved one losing their stash.
If you’re really out of time, why not just send them the best gift of all? BTC straight to their wallet.
