As the holiday season kicks into full gear, we’re all looking forward to the things that really matter: bingeing on our favorite TV shows, eating a ton of comfort food, and spending quality time with family and friends.
But most of us have a shopping list to knock off too. And while experiences are becoming more popular gifts -- in part because, research suggests, they tend to create more happiness than material goods do -- we all have a friend or loved one who just has a thing for cold, hard cash. You know, the cousin who idolizes Warren Buffett -- or the old college roommate who dreams of building a $1 million savings account.
If that sounds familiar, here are some gift ideas for the money lover on your list. (See all of Money's holiday gift guides.)
1. Cash Cannon
2. Warren Buffett Poster
Everyone needs a little hope and inspiration. For the would-be billionaire on your list, who’s more inspiring than famed investor Warren Buffett?

3. Rare Coins
For the money futurist, Bitcoin is a cheeky gift option -- in part because it's tough to find the right gift bag for the cryptocurrency. But Bitcoin is gaining acceptance, with more companies (including Overstock.com and Expedia) now accepting it as a payment method for goods and services.
5. Metal Detector
For money lovers who want to find their own spare change, a metal detector offers both a hobby and -- in theory, at least -- a financial payoff.

6. Liquid Money Perfume & Cologne
Does your friend get turned on by the smell of money? This perfume and cologne combo, which appeared on Shark Tank, packages the “original fragrance of success” with shredded U.S. currency.
Buy it here.
7. Banknote Pillow
Of course, for those who want to lie back and count their riches, a simple pillow may not be enough. If the money lovers in your life need more luxury for their lounging, they can buy an entire couch made of welded half-dollars.
