As we approach the festive season, are you searching for the perfect Christmas gifts for investors in your life? Whether you’re adding to your own wishlist or seeking the perfect investment-related present for a loved one, this list is designed to keep your investment game strong and inspired.
1. Best Investment Books.
A top pick is William Green’s “Richer Wiser Happier.” This book offers a peek into the lives of the world’s most successful investors. After all, who wouldn’t want to model the best in the business?
Some other book hits for under the tree are Invested by Danielle Town or Rule #1 by Phil Town.
2. Stocks – The Ultimate Investment Gift.
A beautifully crafted stock gift certificate can be a unique Christmas gift for investors. This elegant and thoughtful present is a great way to introduce someone to the world of stock ownership.
If you want to gift someone stocks here’s how to do it: Print out a stock gift certificate (I’ve created one you can use) and put it in a nice giftbox, wrap it and put it under the tree. Once it’s time to buy the stock you sit with the receiver (either physically or online) and help them buy the shares. Print the PDF.
This year, forget traditional gifts. Put Berkshire Hathaway or your favorite company’s stocks on your wishlist. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
And if you need guidance on finding quality stocks, my mentor sessions are here to help.
3. Wall Financial Journal Subscription – A Gift of Knowledge.
In the realm of Christmas gifts for investors, a subscription to a financial newspaper or magazine like Wall Street journal or Barron’s stands out. It’s a gift that provides ongoing knowledge and insight, crucial for every investor.
4. A Quality Notebook – For the Organized Investor.
Don’t want to give out subscriptions or certificates? Give a quality notebook like the Leuchtturm1917, Smythson Chelsea in Panama or a Missoni x Moleskine notebook. As an investor it’s key to take notes on your progress and learnings.
5. Investing Mentorship – A Personalized Gift.
Know someone who has been talking about investing but never got started? Offer the gift of knowledge and confidence with personalized investing mentorship sessions: A package with 3 mentor sessions with me.
This is the last chance to buy these sessions as I’m phasing out this opportunity to get customized sessions catering exactly to your situation, so grab this opportunity before it’s gone. Whether it’s for yourself or a loved one this is a highly valuable gift and invaluable knowledge you will keep for life.
6. Noise-Cancelling Headphones – For Focused Investing.
When visited Omaha Nebraska, where the iconic investor Warren Buffett lives, I noticed how quiet and calm his neighborhood was. On several occasions Buffett has mentioned the importance of keeping a calm investing space and the way to achieve this is by noise cancelling headset. For example Apple Air Pods, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 or JBL Tune 660NC are perfect for listening to finance podcasts like The Investor’s Podcast or my podcast: Investing Mastermind Podcast.
Based on my visit to Warren Buffett’s peaceful neighbourhood in Omaha, noise-cancelling headphones are a great gift for investors who value a quiet space for market analysis.
7. Trip to Berkshire Meeting in Omaha – An Experiential Gift.
Speaking of Omaha, why not give the gift of community and join Warren Buffett’s annual meeting. As a shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway, you’re invited to the “Coachella for Capitalists”. To gift this to someone you need to either buy them one stock of Berkshire Hathaway or share one of your 4 shareholder passes with them, buy the plane tickets as well as accommodation in Omaha.
Maybe the next romantic getaway with your partner?
8. Meditation App – A Thoughtful and Affordable Gift.
Don’t have the budget for noise cancelling headphones or a trip to calm Omaha to get centered and destress? I highly recommend the Hay House “Empower You” app, which has tons of meditations and audiobooks to dive into. I often fall asleep to Nicky Sutton’s sleep meditations at night or listen to an audio book like “I can do it” by Louise Hay, Suze Orman’s “Financial Freedom” or authors like Jim Kwik, Denise Duffield-Thomas or Mel Robbins

9. Board Games – Fun Investment-Themed Gift.
The “Stockpile” and ” Stock Exchange Game” board games are excellent choice for fun, educational investment-themed gifts. Perfect for both beginners and seasoned investors.
Or try Monopoly for a family-friendly gift.
Playing with friends? When visiting Omaha I went to the Spielbound board game café in Omaha with a group of investor friends and we played ”Istanbul” – a capitalistic game where you have to hustle as a merchant.
10. Investment Research Subscription – A Gift for Serious Investors.
A subscription to an investment research platform. It could be premium access to the Gurufocus platform or Finviz stock screener search engine. An insightful gift for anyone serious about their investment journey.
In summary, these investment gifts are not just presents; they’re steps towards a more prosperous future. Remember, the mentorship sessions with me are a unique and limited opportunity – a perfect gift for those looking to start their investment journey. Let’s make this festive season about growth, learning, and wise investment choices!
Disclaimer: While I know William Green personally, his book “Richer Wiser Happier” is an essential read for anyone looking for the best investment books this Christmas.
