Gift Ideas for Stock Market Junkies

If you’re really into the stock market or know someone who is, then you know how hard it is to find good stock market gifts during the holidays. So hopefully I can give you some ideas with some products I really enjoy myself. Here’s my list of stock market gift ideas:

Wall Street Warriors: Season 1 DVD

This documentary/reality TV show follows the lives of ten upcoming and successful stock market players, giving you an inside look of what it’s like to control millions of dollars everyday in the stock market. The show really does an excellent job of capturing the essence of what Wall Street is all about, and what it takes to be successful. I found myself relating to many of the aspects talked about on the show, and it helped me realize I’m not the only one who sometimes goes insane in the stock market.

Confessions of a Street Addict by Jim Cramer

The only word to describe Jim Cramer’s tell-all biography of his life and work as a hedge fund manager would be “enthralling”. I read this book front to back in about three days and I was loving every minute of it. Jim Cramer of course is the successful former hedge fund manager now hosting the very popular “Mad Money” show on CNBC. In Cramer’s book “Confessions of a Street Addict”, no details are spared as you read all of Jim’s terrible and lucky events that took place throughout his life such as living in his car to successfully avoiding a major stock market crash. This is a book that offers no real investing information, but it is a great read because Jim Cramer has led such an interesting life and gives you an inside look at how hedge funds work.

Wall Street (20th Anniversary Edition DVD)

The masterpiece movie by Oliver Stone is set in the fast paced 1980′s where a struggling stock broker named Bud Fox has aspirations to become a real player in the game. His only chance to reach that goal is to work under Gordon Gekko, a heartless but brilliant stock broker who will do anything to make a profit. Starring Michael Douglas as Gorgon Gekko and Charlie Sheen as Bud Fox, the movie has won countless awards for it’s amazing performance of the criminal acts of insider trading that were prevalent in the 1980′s stock market.

Bronze Finish Bull Statue Wall Street

This gift isn’t anything spectacular, but it is awfully cool since it is similar to the real bronze bull statue in New York. Good for anyone who’s got an empty desk and wants some Wall Street spice. You can use it as a fun paper weight or as a weapon for those angry stock market days! .

StockCast – Digital Stock Market Watcher

Stockcast is a digital stock market watching device, displaying real time information on the major stock market indexes, all without needing to log onto your computer or any financial website. This item is more of a novelty gift than a serious tool used by those in the stock market industry, but it’s a neat way of keeping up with the market, providing a sort of “at-home” stock market ticker. The Stockcast can be tweaked to follow your entire portfolio, or just the major indexes such as the DOW Jones, S&P, etc.

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad is not just about investing, it’s about developing a different mindset when it comes to money, and financial independence. It’s an excellent book for young investors, or anyone who you feel could use an improvement financially. The book in no way teaches you how to make large sums of money (be it the stock the market or other investing ventures), but it does open your mind to the possibility of investing for a better future. It’s a simple book, but it’s a powerful one that I highly recommend for any young financial/investor minded individual.
