5 of the Best Gifts for Millennials
The millennial generation hasn’t had it easy. Many are saddled with student loan debt and entered the workforce during recessionary times. This led to the cliché of the millennial living in their parent’s basement. The reality is that most millennials are out on their own, and many are now getting married and having kids. It’s not always easy to follow generational trends, and Millennials have been a tough group to grasp. They seem to have shifting enthusiasms. But any of these five best gifts for millennials should please millennial tastes.
Cold Brew Coffeemaker
There is never enough coffee in the average millennial’s life. Cold brew is the new trend, as it is reputed to be less bitter. Cold-brew coffeemakers are like enhanced pitchers. To make coffee, all you do is add the coffee and water, make sure the cap seals tightly, and put it in the fridge. Iced coffee will be at the ready easily for hot summer days.
Anything that gets handled as much as a millennial’s phone needs a good cleaning. But since phones can’t get wet, sanitizers that use UV light are all the rage. Some will de-germ both sides of the phone in less than a minute.
Bluetooth Equipped Turntable
It leaves boomers scratching their heads, remembering scratched records, but millennials have a thing for vinyl. A turntable with Bluetooth is a great gift for a millennial music lover. It will let them enjoy their tunes without having to connect speaker wires. Throw in a few vintage records complete with liner notes and your millennial will be in music heaven.
Stress Relieving Squeezy Toys
Mortgages, kids, and jobs all hunkered down together at home can be stressful. Millennials will appreciate stress relievers like squeezy balls, keychains with squishy attachments, or stress putty to squeeze and stretch their stress away.
Millennials have developed a very adult habit of collecting fine liquor. They’ll wait in line for hours to buy limited edition bourbon or whiskey. Whatever their preference in spirits, the millennial liquor aficionado in your life will appreciate a rare bottle. Be prepared for some sticker shock—the millennial enthusiasm for some of these bottles has driven the prices up to three, four, and in some cases, even five figures.
