So, to help you find the perfect NFT gift for your loved one, we have put together a list of the best NFT gifts for the NFT enthusiast in your life. If you’re looking to get the ultimate quirky valentines gift, look no further than this valentines NFT gift guide.
Buying an NFT
So you want to gift an NFT for Valentine’s Day? Great! Before we dive into digital gifts, let’s look at to buying and transferring an NFT.
Create a Digital Wallet
The first step in your NFT gifting journey is to have a digital wallet. If you already have one, move on to step two. If not, it’s time to create your crypto wallet. This digital wallet will store any NFTs that you buy. There are two types of wallets: hot and cold. Hot wallets are software wallets that are connected to the internet via your computer or phone and include MetaMask and Phantom. Cold wallets are hardware devices that keep your data offline, the most popular one being Ledger. Further, for step-by-step instructions on creating your crypto wallet, check out our guide on the best crypto wallets for buying and storing NFTs.
Buy an NFT
Once you have decided which NFT to purchase, head to a marketplace to complete the transaction. There are many NFT marketplaces, from the ever-popular OpenSea to the fine-art marketplace SuperRare. Follow the specific marketplace instructions on how to purchase your NFT. Some platforms accept fiat while others may require you to pay in cryptocurrency. However, make sure to only buy from legitimate sources to keep your funds and wallet safe.
Gifting an NFT
If you’ve made it this far, you have successfully purchased the NFT gift. Now, to send the NFT to someone else, you will need their wallet address. If you want to keep the gift a surprise, wait until they receive it before asking for their wallet address. You could print a photo of the NFT you have purchased and put it inside a card or have the NFT printed and hang it on a wall. Then, when you’re ready, ask the recipient for their wallet address. Make sure to double-check the address, as once you send the NFT, you cannot get it back.
Finally, give yourself a pat on the back for giving a unique and special Valentine’s Day gift!
