It’s that time of year. One for giving, gifting, and treating yourself to something special. I personally have bought kid toys, and kid clothes (pro tip: shop the sales for next season’s outfits) and browsed local small businesses for fun gifts (like a candle that burns down to a usable whiskey glass).
Then I thought, there needs to be a Web3 gift guide! 2023 will be more about Web3, connected devices, crypto, NFTs, Blockchain, and the metaverse.
