Are you struggling with what gift to get for the trader and or investor in your life? 2019 was a volatile year of dodging Trump tweets, potential China trade deals. and failed IPO’s. If you don’t want to buy another awful gift and want something that makes them feel like they are five years old again when they unwrap it, well, then take a look at the 2019 Christmas list with holiday gifts for investors and traders that we believe you will love. If you’re an investor that is somewhere between saving your pennies and looking for a Lamborghini well, then we have something for everyone.
1) DJI Mavic Air Quadcopter with Remote Controller
As investors, we’re used to a series of ups and downs. The DJI Mavic Air Quadcopter is designed to smooth those bumps so you can experience the joy of flying a drone without all the spikes and trough that you’d find on a Nonfarm Payroll Friday.
2) Real Relax Massage Chair, Full Body Zero Gravity Shiatsu Recliner with Heat and Foot Rollers, Black
A vibrating chair? Sure, we’ve experienced massage chairs before, but this one’s unique. You know that feeling after you see a trade enter its take-profit position? Or when you exercise your option? The sigh of relief that you get from those situations is similar to how this chair makes you feel. It’s almost like there’s a tiny Swedish woman inside it, giving you a massage.
3) Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9750 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, Lunar Blue HX9954/56
When you go out for a dinner to celebrate that big score, you want to have your best pearly-white smile. As investors, we understand that you can’t shortcut greatness. This toothbrush is designed to deliver the kind of clean that has everyone at the restaurant wondering, “What does he do to his teeth?” A brilliant
4) Jura J6 Automatic Coffee Machine (Brilliant Silver) + Free Jura Chilled Milk Container, Jura Smart Filter Cart
As investors we run on two things – dreams and coffee. While you’re responsible for achieving your dreams on your own, this coffee make will take care of the other half of the equation. If your trader ends up spending a lot of their money on Starbucks coffee like I do, you’ll realize pretty quickly that this does everything those fancy baristas can do, and they don’t even need to put on pants to get their half-caf macchiato! Convenience, thy name is Jura. Hey, it even does monkey-poo coffee!
5) chiliPAD Cube 3.0 – ME and WE Zones – Cooling and Heating Mattress Pad
Traders usually have weird hours. There are three markets we have to keep track of and getting a good night’s sleep is crucial to that. If your trader finds himself rolling out of bed with poor rest, then their trades will suffer (as well as anyone else who gets in their way – bad sleep makes us grumpy). This mattress pad makes it easier to adjust the bed temperature to suit our needs, making it easier to get to sleep. Now if only my broker could do the same for my dividend stock…
6) Rawlings Rugged Briefcase, Cognac
As traders, we enjoy hitting it out of the park. Our briefcases get their share of abuse, so why not combine our great loves of baseball and beating up our hand luggage into a single, amazing brief? Made out of old baseball gloves, the texture is something that reminds you of the days on the mound when you were a kid. If your trader is a baseball fan, this is well worth it as a gift. Maybe even throw in a brand new baseball in the bag for good measure.
7) Chicago Gaming Arcade Legends 3 with Golden Tee and Installed Game Pack 536 Upgrade
Traders live for games. Some of us love the golf course, but that’s only because we don’t have the joy of a retro cabinet in our lounge. I guarantee, if your trader’s a fan of old arcade cabinets, then this one is more than worth it to get them as a present. With 165 games pre-installed, your biggest problem will be to get them to turn it off and come to dinner. But on the bright side, at least you know where they are!
8) iRestore Laser Hair Growth System
Hair is a touchy subject for us as we get older. Traders put a lot of stock into their looks (no, not that kind of stock), so having a full head of hair goes a long way to making us feel happy. And this thing really works! No, it is not the Devo hat. I swear I’m telling you the truth. I’m not saying after using this I’m these guys celebrity but I’m no Kojak either. Again, I know this looks ridiculous but if you use it truly works. Youtube it if you don’t believe me.
9) Drinique ELT-RK-CLR-24 Elite Rocks Unbreakable Tritan Whiskey Glasses
Whiskey? Gin? Vodka? Orange Juice? Whatever we drink as we watch the markets do their dance on your screen, we do so in style. If the trader in your life is like me and enjoys a little glass of something sharp while they do their thing, the Drinque unbreakable is one of the classiest (and indestructible) ways to have a taste of luxury. Fancy alcohol or orange juice sold separately.
10) Oculus VR Headset
In the 90s there was a slogan that went, “It’s the next best thing to being there.” Oculus Rift decided to turn that up a notch and…well…actually put you there. This virtual reality headset allows for complete immersion in whatever you do. For a trader, it means being able to experience things firsthand without having to rush back and forth and deal with traffic. There is also another benefit to these glasses that I’ll leave unnamed. Let’s just say Blade Runner wasn’t far off.
11) Orion SkyQuest XT8 Plus Dobsonian Reflector Telescope
Just because we spend hours poring over facts, figures, and charts doesn’t mean we don’t look up every once in a while. If the trader in your life likes to stargaze and has a penchant for the heavens, then this telescope offers a unique viewing experience. It doesn’t matter whether they want to look at the moon, Jupiter, or their quarterly earnings reports, this telescope will allow them to get a better view.
12) simplehuman Sensor Lighted Makeup Vanity Mirror, 8″ Round with Touch-Control Brightness, 5X Magnification, Brushed Stainless Steel, Rechargeable and Cordless
They say that one’s profession is a reflection of themselves, and we traders love seeing perfection. This mirror is a perfect gift for someone who spends a lot of time taking care of their looks. If the trader in your life is a woman, or your husband should spend more time looking at his appearance, this is a great gift idea. Also, be careful of the zoom, it shows up ALL the blemishes.
13) STEM subscription Box for Kids
As traders, we see tour future in the eyes of our kids. What do we want them to be? To know? This STEM subscription kit sets them on the path to asking the right questions. Now, it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to build a fully-functioning rocket ship in the back yard, but at the very least, they’ll enjoy making fizzy volcanoes and understanding how the physical world works. It’s better than trying to blow up the neighbor’s cat at least.
14) Meural Canvas – Smart Digital Frame | Leonora Black | 27 inch HD Display with WiFi Powered by NETGEAR (MC227BL
Have you ever wanted to show off some of the pieces of art that really stir you, but don’t want to spend excess money on the glass frames? Or maybe you have a wife or girlfriend who LOVS changing your interior décor every week because it gets ‘boring.’ If either of these is you, then maybe getting a smart digital frame will help the problem. The Wi-Fi connection and 27-inch HD display makes it perfect for displaying anything you’d like…even the picture of the four dogs playing poker.
15) Le Creuset 16-piece Cookware Set, Cerise & All-Clad H911SA64 Essentials Nonstick Cookware set, 10 Piece, Grey
In our downtime, we traders love to eat. Some of us cook, but others prefer to be cooked for. In either case, having the tools for the trade makes for a much better dinner or lunch. While you wouldn’t be able to get Gordon Ramsay to make an in-person appearance (your cooking isn’t THAT bad is it?) these cookware sets are ideal gifts either for the cook, or for the consumer.
16) iRobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum- Good for Pet Hair, Carpets, Hard Floors, Self-Charging
Maids can be a tricky subject. There’s no shortage of tropes about what happens when traders get bored and maids are home cleaning…but let’s not go there. If you want to have a home that remains clean, but don’t want a maid getting into your private areas, you should consider a Roomba. With cutting-edge technology that allows it to clean while you work, it’s silent, works well on hard floors, and won’t try to make your trader do bad things. It’s a win-win situation!
17) Powerbeats Pro – Totally Wireless Earphones
If your trader’s traveling somewhere, or just headed to the gym to work out, it’s unlikely that they want to get dragged into a discussion about the state of the economy. These totally wireless earphones are a perfect way to help them keep their focus and warn away other people who might want to make some small-talk. What’s even cooler is that there’s no wires to get tangled up anywhere!
18) Elizabeth Cotton Women’s Egyptian Cotton Pajamas
Few things feel as opulent as Egyptian cotton. If you’re a trader and have a wife or a girlfriend who enjoys luxury as much as you do, these cotton pajamas are exactly what she needs. With the way these fibers feel, you might even look forward to hugging her!
19) Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
I can’t be the only one who gets excited when I see the word ‘super’ in something, right? This hair dryer is designed for people on the go. So, when you’re in a rush to get that final trade in for the day before the closing bell, you need as much efficiency as you can manage. The coolest thing about it is the housing…you can’t even get burned for touching it!
20) Bradley Commercial Snow Tube for Kids and Adults
I think if you’re planning to hit the slopes for some fun this holiday season then this snow tube has the potential for a lot of fun. With UV and wear protection, this isn’t some financial bubble that will pop at the earliest sign of pressure.
21) Kid-Sized Hardwood Puppet Theater with Chalkboard
Finding a gift for kids as an investor is difficult. I mean, they can’t use a dividend growth account yet, so what do you get them? This Kid-sized puppet theatre might entertain them. The only downside is that you might be stuck watching Punch-and-Judy recreations until Easter.
