Since more people are getting into Bitcoin, a really cool gift idea is a physical wallet. This item looks like a USB stick and allows someone to securely store their Bitcoin holdings. Two options worth looking into are the Trezor and Nano S. It will also be interesting to see what kind of waves Bitcoin continues to make across the payment landscape in 2018.

4. Amazon Echo Show

Amazon continued to make it clear in 2017 that they’re not afraid to enter new verticals. From their acquisition of Whole Foods to the innovations they keep making within payments, Amazon continues their march toward ubiquity. If you’re looking for a gadget gift that will help you stay connected with someone on your list, be sure to take a look at the Echo Show. This 7-inch device makes it easy to enjoy video content, as well as use the built-in camera for fun video calls.
