Savings bonds and Treasury bonds can make great gifts to start a path of investing for young investors.  You can purchase an electronic I Bond as a gift for someone and hold it in the “Gift Box” in your TreasuryDirect account until you are ready to transfer it to the recipient.  If you purchase an electronic I Bond as a gift, you must provide the recipient’s Social Security Number.  The gift recipient must open or already have a TreasuryDirect account in order for you to be able to transfer the bond to that person.  However, if the recipient has not opened a TreasuryDirect account, you may hold an EE or I Bond that you purchased as a gift until it reaches maturity.  Treasury securities can be great gifts for young investors.
