It’s Not Too Late to Give Some Bitcoin for the Holidays

Posted on: December 24th, 2017 by jms No Comments

If you’re like me, you tend to wait until the very last minute to complete your holiday shopping. With Christmas just a few days away, I’ve been thinking hard about what I can get for some close family and friends who are left on my shopping list for this season, and then it hit me! I can give the wonderful gift of Bitcoin.


With so many still speculating that Bitcoin will double or triple in the coming months / years, what better gift to give than the gift that keeps on giving?  Even with the recent correction in the price of Bitcoin and other altcoins, I still see a bright future for crypto currencies. We’ve seen many corrections over the years as it relates to Bitcoin, especially in 2017. Here’s a look at the ups and downs, and mostly ups, throughout 2017…



I don’t see Bitcoin loosing steam any time soon, so I’ll be giving some as gifts for my closest friends and family this holiday season.


Here are just a few ways you can give Bitcoin as a gift…



A Paper Wallet


You can visit to get a fancy print out of newly created public and private key containing a Bitcoin value. There will also be a QR code for easy transfer to digital wallet providers like or other similar exchanges.

Coinbase is a great way to send Bitcoin values to any email address. If you already have a balance with you can use their app to send any percentage of your balance to an email address of your choice. I’ve used their app to gift Bitcoin before and it’s very simple and secure. Just be sure not to send the gift until the day you’d like the recipient to receive it, since Coinbase will instantly send the email notification. Note, if you don’t yet have a balance and you’re not set up for instant buys, you won’t be able to get Bitcoin in time for Christmas this year using



One of the above options would be my personal preference, but you can also use to send Bitcoin gift cards, or even send a secure hardware wallet similar to a USB drive by visiting Both of these options are great, but each will take some time to order, so don’t count on them for this holiday season.
