Looking for gift ideas for a stock trader or any other special Mr. Wallstreet in your life? Sculptures of the famous Wall Street bull are great inspirational presents. The classic bronze figures or the more modern metal or glass work are wonderful additions to the desk or office. Some sculptures depict the confrontation of the bull and the bear, reflecting the constant struggle of the market. These figures can be a great reminder to the trader that it his or her job to peer daily into the bedlam of our economy and find a long term solution for their clients and their company.
Framed artwork is another great choice. A real stock certificate of a famous stock or a favorite of the trader can be framed and displayed in the office. Many companies have beautiful stock certificates (think Disney). It’s easy to find artwork representing the ups and downs of the stock market as well. Some prints show the overall history in charts and graphs, while others illustrate Wall Street as it was in the early days of the market or during a particularly turbulent or important time in history. Two examples that come to mind are the great depression or September 11th.
The bull and bear show up in other personal items as well. Cuff links, book ends, business card holders, ink pens, golf club covers, coin banks, desk clocks, wall clocks and neck ties (of course). You can even purchase a framed collection of stamps depicting market bull and bear artwork.
Stress toys shaped like money or magnetic art toys shaped like dollar signs are always fun. Dig a little deeper online, and you can even find a Wall Street guru ball. It works like those 8 ball fortune teller things you had as a kid. Continue your hunt and you can find a USB flash drive that looks like gold bar. Nice!.
