Holiday Gifts That Keep on Giving
Parents, you have two options this holiday season: give a gift that will be forgotten by Spring, or give a gift that will keep on giving. No, we’re not talking about about sourdough starter. We’re talking about gifts that make an impact. Gifts that inspire! This holiday season, give your child a gift they’ll remember for years to come.
The Gift of an Egg — a Nest Egg
What if you could give your child a gift today that would benefit them for years or even decades to come. There are a number of ways to do this. Savings bonds, given by practical grandparents for generations, still exist. And now, they can be ordered online. TreasuryDirect.gov is the government’s official site for all things savings bonds. They’ll even help you print a gift certificate to announce your gift! Looking for a more modern, risky, and potentially lucrative option? Consider the gift of stock. Stockpile is an ingenious site that lets givers purchase stock in small amounts (even $20) and give it away. With thousands of companies at your fingertips, a gift of stock can be both practical and thoughtful.
The Gift of Inspiration
Sometimes, your child just needs a spark; a nudge via a dose of inspiration. Show your kids what’s possible by introducing them to the successes of real young entrepreneurs. Our Emmy Award-winning show is available for streaming and download on Vimeo. Purchase access to our entire sixth season for just $15.99! Your kids will be educated, inspired, and--who knows--maybe even motivated to start a business of their own. Want to add a stocking stuffer to that gift? Supplement their season pass with products from entrepreneurs featured on the show including Man Cans candles, Sporting Sails, and Compartes chocolate.

It is packed with lively illustrations to make difficult concepts easy to understand—all as a way of building financial literacy, good decision-making, and the appreciation of a hard-earned dollar. Our gift idea? One copy of How to Turn $100 into $1,000,000 and one crisp Benjamin. Ready, set, grow...
