Margin of Safety by Seth A. Klarman
This is an out-of-print book that is more of a collector’s item — they’re not cheap, and prices vary for used or new on Amazon.com.
Nevertheless, it’s a literary treasure for traders who want to learn more about value investing.
Twittertape — Modern Ticker Tape Machine
Source: Daily Mail
Famous inventor Thomas Edison invented the ticker tape machine in 1869 to print stocks and shares. You can still get the original version, but that will run you around $2,500.
Now a technophile from Cumbria has placed a new twist to the old technology by building a contraption he has named the Twittertape.
Twittertape connects to the Internet and prints out stock tweets to a tape.
Although not commercially available yet, you can get a replica stock ticker tape machine from Bull Market Gifts.
Or, maybe just a bit cheeky …
Wall Street Tie
This 57” hand-crafted Wall Street Silk Tie is covered in popular Wall Street ticker symbols and prices including MSFT, AMZN, GE, INTC, IBM etc.
What’s not to like?
You can get it from Amazon.
Berkshire Hathaway Monopoly Diamond Edition
Source: Bull Market Gifts
No, we are not talking about any monopoly enjoyed by this company in the marketplace.
Rather, Berkshire Hathaway Monopoly is an interesting game that gives investors a way to buy shares of companies that Buffet has purchased.
Custom pewter tokens represent Berkshire investments: for instance, a gecko lizard is used to represent GEICO Insurance.
Players pay an acquisition tax instead of the usual income tax. Get the Diamond Edition of the game on Amazon for a reasonable price!
Replica Brass Bull
Wall Street would not be Wall Street without its famous charging bull.
Superstitious traders sometimes rub the dangly bits of the 7,100 lbs bronze sculpture as a good luck ritual. You can buy one on eBay for about $26.
Bull and Bear Sculpture
This Bull and Bear Bronze Sculpture is a classic (and affordable!) gift for any finance freak on your list.
Christmas gift for any trader. This sculpture is made through an electro-plating process, leading to great detail and higher quality than the solid bronze sculpture.
Buy it on Amazon.com
Money trees are beloved in the east where they are believed to bring good fortune. They can also help spruce up your office.

Wall Street ”Cult” Calculator-HP 12C
The HP-12C is a calculator that has become an enigma of sorts.
The calculator remains massively popular with traders despite the fact that there are other modern models that are faster and more feature-rich.
Part of the reason why it has refused to die lies in its simplicity — it’s a pure RPN calculator with no algebraic options to confuse the user.
This veritable device is available on Amazon for a great price.
And finally, maybe it’s just going to be a low-key, practical Christmas…
