    I want to buy three stocks (or a multiple of stocks up to €300 x 3) to give as a gift to three kids.

    They’ll most likely be held for at least 10.

    If you had to pick one or three different ones, what would be your choice?

    I would buy Disney. Especially with the streaming service going live this year.

    You can even get a poster type certificate of the shares owned so they've something physical to have

    That's what I'm leaning toward, the current share price is $134 (up from $98 earlier this year). I guess I could spend a little more & get them three each (had estimated about €1,000 including fees).

    Did you get them?

    Why wouldn't you just buy them shares in an ETF? Might not have the the novelty factor, but chances are they'll pay off far better.

    Anyone got recommendations for a broker who’ll be able to provide a paper certificate (as well as the digital version)?
