Warren Buffett’s gifts changed from $10,000 in hundred-dollar bills to each of his relatives to $10,000 in stock. Let’s admit that here is rather good at making presents.

Warren Buffett, an American business magnate, is well-known for his successful investments and vast fortune, has started thinking of gifts for his family amid the upcoming holidays. Being an investment guru, Buffet stays true to his strategic principles when it comes to presents. Warren Buffett’s gifts are well-thought-out.

As Buffett’s former daughter-in-law Mary has said, the billionaire used to always give $10,000 in hundred-dollar bills to each of his relatives previously. Then, he started giving $10,000 in stock instead.

Mary provided an example:

“Once, there was an envelope with a letter from him. Instead of cash, he’d given us $10,000 worth of shares in a company he’d recently bought, a trust Coca-Cola had.”

As ThinkAdvisor reported earlier, “Oracle of Omaha” (how many call Buffett) said each family member could choose between either cashing in the shares or keeping them.

Mary Buffett said:

“I thought, “Well, [this stock] is worth more than $10,000. So I kept it, and it kept going up. Then, every year when he’d give us stock — Wells Fargo being one of them — I would just buy more of it because I knew it was going to go up.”

Warren Buffett’s gifts can give a good start for those who receive them. The billionaire seems to care a lot about his family and wants them to learn to use money wisely.
