Millennials are a difficult demographic to shop for. They have particular tastes, and they’re hard to please. This is why I’ve created this guide for gift ideas perfect for the millennial in your life!
I’ll start by discussing what makes them unique–their likes and dislikes–and then give you a list of products that would make great gifts.
Last-minute gift ideas
“Millennials” is a concept of American culture, more precisely, it was introduced into wide circulation by two authors – William Strauss and Neil Howe, who wrote the highly popular book “Generations: A History of the American Future, 1584–2069“. Then the ideas of this book were developed in their works “The Fourth Transformation: American Prophecy” (1997) and, in fact, “The Rise of the Millennium Generation: The Next Great Generation” (2000).
This was followed by a series of works by the same authors dedicated to the maturing generation of millennials. According to another popular American classification, this same generation is called “generation Y”, as well as “generation Next”, “echo boomers” (since millennials are children of children born during the post-war baby boom period), “Peter Pan generation” (generation, who is in no hurry to leave the parents’ house and go out into adulthood) and so on.
In general, we are talking about the generation born in the 1980s –1990s, and if we follow the dating of Strauss and Howe, then in the period 1982–2002. The work of Strauss and Hove is rather rigid in its schematism since it considers generational change as a four-phase cycle that defines American and, more broadly, Anglo-American history.
Their complete classification includes 24 generations – from the “Arthurian generation” of the era of the end of the Hundred Years War to Generation Z (“generation of the Motherland”, post-millennials)
