About a half decade ago, a Bitcoin used to be a nice Christmas present. Today, it overshoots the mark as a gift, but you can still give fractional BTC. If you have not bought it before, get 10% off of your first $100. After that, you can buy BTC with your credit card. Alternatively, explore digital mining. I am mining Bitcoin, Ether, and Dash.
As my ardor for giving away or spending Bitcoin has waned through the years, I have also looked to alternative Bitcoin-related gifts. I like secure Bitcoin wallets such as KeepKey: the Simple Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet.
Trezor makes a somewhat cheaper wallet. Digital currency will be an important part of the future. If your friends and family are not already a part of that future, maybe this is the year you could encourage them to start.
