Christmas time! Pay your gifts with crypto on these sites
For most of us, Christmas is the best time of the year, when we share the most special moments with our loved ones. It’s full of magic, memories, and, above all, gifts. And who says crypto can’t help with our Christmas time?
Below, you’ll find gifts that you can pay for with cryptocurrencies from the comfort of your home. Whether it’s for your kids, wife, siblings, cousins, or bitcoiner friends, you can always buy anything with crypto this Christmas.
Christmas toys with crypto
We know that Christmas and its magic are much bigger when seen from the eyes of a child. That’s why toys are at the top of our list. One of the options is the Kids & Baby section of Overstock. In this store, you can use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum to buy Christmas gifts. In addition to toys of all sizes and colors, furniture and children’s clothing are also available.
In the matter of crypto Christmas toys, but for the not-so-little ones, we have Tenacious Toys. This is a store to buy limited edition figures, both vintage and customized. Founded in 2004, it offers figures made of materials such as vinyl, PVC, or resin. Among the cryptocurrencies accepted by this website are Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dogecoin. Very similar to this store, we also have The Toy Chronicle, with toys made by different artists.
Technology and video games
If you want to give hardware as a gift this Christmas, then your choice may be NewEgg. This store is one of the first of its kind to accept cryptocurrency payments and continues to do so today. Here you can buy computer components, laptops and gaming systems. You will also find some video game titles. Soon, they’ll be accepting Shiba Inu (SHIB) as well.
However, if you’re a gaming connoisseur, then you might want to try platforms like G2A and Key4Coins. You can buy a long list of video games with crypto for Christmas there. But you should keep in mind that these aren’t platforms where developers sell their games directly and receive part of the profits. On the contrary, they’re P2P systems where you redeem gift card codes in exchange for cryptocurrencies.
Fashion and accessories
Remember when you were a kid and were disappointed to get some clothes for Christmas? Luckily, as we get older, we start to appreciate the gesture. If you want to buy clothes and accessories and pay the bill with cryptocurrencies, Cryptoemporium offers a selection of crypto merchandise, whose prices are denominated in BTC. Other cryptocurrencies accepted by this accessories store are Ethereum, Tether, Dogecoin, Dash, and Litecoin.
In that store, you can also find jewelry for men and women. Likewise, on CryptoJewerly you will find cryptocurrency-themed jewelry. And we can’t forget about Overstock’s jewelry section, where a long list of accessories is offered. These include rings, bracelets, earrings, watches, necklaces, and even pieces with diamonds and pearls.
For a fashionable Christmas with crypto, we also have Atheist Shoes. This is a handmade-shoe store that rescues the art of the first shoemaker artists. They offer worldwide shipping (from Berlin) and can be paid with Bitcoin.
Christmas with crypto for pets
If you have pets at home, you know they should also have a place on our gift list. The American store Pet Pro Supply Co. offers everything for them, from pet toys and pet beds to professional systems for baths and veterinary clinics. The accepted cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, USD Coin, and DAI.
That’s not all, of course, but everything depends on your place of residency. For example, if you’re in São Paulo, Brazil, you can visit the veterinary clinic PrevetHome and pay with Bitcoin. In Berlin (with worldwide shipments) you have the Pet Supplies section on Shopinbit. They accept Bitcoin, Monero, Dash, and Litecoin. For more locations and products, you can always check Cryptwerk.
Give art with cryptos
If you’re a fan of giving art as a Christmas gift and paying for it with crypto, you’ve probably heard about CryptoArt. This is a platform where you can find fine art pieces containing QR codes with certain amounts of cryptocurrencies. This year, a new artistic proposal comes from the hand of Botto, an algorithm to create decentralized art.
Botto is an artificial intelligence with Generative Art skills. This algorithm generates unique art pieces and the community is in charge of deciding how they interact and which pieces are put up for auction in Superare every week. As this is a DAO, you can directly gift the piece or some native tokens for the recipient of your Christmas gift. These tokens will let them participate in the governance of the project.
Gift cards with crypto
If you still don’t know what to give, then you can resort to gift cards. These can be spent at sites like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Sears, Starbucks, Sephora, GameStop, The Home Depot, and a host of retailers, restaurants, services like Netflix and Disney+, and all sorts of stores.
The most popular gift card services that you can pay with cryptocurrencies are Gyft, Bitrefill, Coingate, and Egifter. With this tool, a wide variety of products are waiting for you in this and another Christmas. Of course, a nice gift for your family and friends could also be to top-up any prepaid mobile phone across the world. You can do this with crypto on ALFAtop. Check our guide about it!
No luck? Crypto on Christmas!
The most popular cryptocurrencies are always a good choice as a Christmas present. You can send them without leaving home, and the recipient can decide what’s best to spend them. Or not: they can keep them for a long time and take advantage of their possible price appreciation. After all, cryptocurrencies are a good investment. You can buy the most popular ones on Alfacash.
If you don’t know which one to choose, a recent survey revealed that the most popular (and desired) are still Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), and Dogecoin (DOGE).
Other options for gifting cryptocurrencies with a credit card include USD Coin (USDC), XRP, Polkadot (DOT), Chainlink (LINK), Stellar (XLM), Uniswap (UNI), Maker (MKR), Binance Coin (BNB), Polygon (MATIC), Cardano (ADA), Avalanche (AVAX), Axie Infinity (AXS), NEAR Protocol (NEAR), and Solana (SOL). All of these have shown strong growth prospects in the last year.
Cold storage is always a good option
For those cryptocurrencies that you can give as a present, cold wallets add an extra degree of security. If the recipient of crypto for Christmas plans to store them for a long time, this would also be an ideal gift. The most popular alternatives on the market right now are the wallets offered by Ledger and Trezor. However, you should keep in mind that if you give a cold storage this Christmas, the cost of the wallet will be added to the number of cryptocurrencies you wish to give as a gift.
If you have come this far, you probably already know what gifts you will buy for your loved ones using cryptocurrencies. You can save yourself a lot of headaches by making your purchases online. But always remember that there are small ventures around your area that accept cryptocurrencies and are worth searching through sites like CoinMap and Cryptwerk.
So, it only remains for us to wish you a merry crypto Christmas and a happy gift exchange!
