Which Sustainable Birthday Gift Ideas is the best for you?
- Not A Boring Gift – Crypto Gift
Even if you don’t know much about cryptocurrency yet, the crypto gift is some of the best digital gifts out there because it’s essentially an investment in the future instead of just giving someone cash (not that there’s anything wrong with cash!). The cryptocurrency present is one-of-a-kind, valuable, and encourages you to learn more. Email Bitcoin or Ethereum to your buddy. Regardless of how much experience you or your friend have in the space, you can get started with crypto quickly and safely with Not A Boring Gift.

The kit arrives in a nice box (making it an excellent gift) and includes 5 small candles and 5 big ones, as well as 5 pre-made large candles so that you can get started right away.

For added eco flair, get one with a built-in filter so your friend can drink straight from nature’s source whenever they want!
