Dear HackerNoon Nation,

It’s that time of year again!

Like many people, you’re probably already starting to get holiday gift ideas together for the loved ones in your life.

Maybe you have a relative or close friend who’s curious about NFTs, and you want to help them dive in deeper. Where to begin?

Here, my recommended starter combo would be a little bit of ETH, a Ledger hardware wallet, and an inexpensive NFT for playing around with. Keep it simple, right?

The ETH + Ledger will help them get straight into self-custody and prepare for their first transactions and mints.

The NFT (of which there are many you can buy for less than 0.01Ξ each on OpenSea) will give them a low-stakes digital collectible they can practice viewing, listing, and so forth.

You’ve still got plenty of time to get your gift plans in order, though! For now, let’s catch you up on notable NFT headlines from this week. Thanks for reading everyone ✌️
