Some millennials get a bad rap (fake news), but here are some ways to avoid getting them a bad gift!
If you’re wondering if you’re a millennial you’re probably not one. If you’re wondering what to gift the millennials in your life, you’ve come to the right place. But, first things first.
How do you know if those special people in your life are actually millennials? Here’s the easiest tip. Anyone who’s born between the years of 1981 and 1996 is a millennial. And, yes, guys can be them too. For some reason, some people think they can only be girls. Not true! There are a ton of falsehoods out there about them, so we won’t even touch that negativity. Truth be told most millennials care about the environment, want to help people, make life easier and more enjoyable, and just positively exist like we all do.
If you’re scratching your head thinking of exactly what you’re supposed to gift them, don’t stress. We’ve come up with some pretty unique, popular, and actually (re)usable ideas for both the gals and the guys on your list. Shop our picks for some of the best gift ideas for millennials in 2019.
