This millenial gift guide covers both men and women so keep reading …
I’m shopping for the Millenial in your life, which was easy for me since I have lots of millenials to buy for in my family. All I had to do was compile a wishlist of what the millenials in our family have said they would LOVE as gifts. Bonus if you are shopping for gifts for boyfriend or gifts for girlfriend because I split the guide into TWO – one for Guys and one for Girls! Just FYI, this post contains affiliate links.
Gift Guide for Millenial Girls (or Gifts for Girlfriend)
Stay comfy with these A Woven Pear Whale of A Tale Socks. I got a couple of pairs of these at SNAP conf and at Alt Summit this year and boy, are they the comfiest and cutest socks ever! Pretty much good for everything.
And, A Woven Pear has the cutest Instagram feed you ever did see.
Who says you have to go black or white to charge your phone? This ban.do Floral Mobile Charger will look fancy in anyone's purse or laptop bag and no one will be the wiser.
Give that ban.do Floral Mobile Charger something to be all hot and bothered about with the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 tablet for under $150. White is definitely the color to go with and this tablet is all set for ordering wine online and watching Vines about John Cena and #hotlinebling.
I'm not gonna argue with the powers that be but if they wanna wear mom jeans, then let them! This updated pair of 1980s acid wash jeans have a super cute cut that's fun and flirty.
Give her a boost with Elizabeth Gilbert's hit Big Magic before she even needs it.
Easy to clean and easy to find, this Watchamacallits Make-up Bag (Neon yellow) is a sure fire hit, based on the glowing Amazon reviews! Fill it with some of her favorites or just cold hard cash.
And speaking of magic, if she loves the Magic Kingdom and Disney parks, then you MUST get her a NEW MagicBand, now available from the DisneyStore!
A taste of marrakesh and a touch of gold, this Lily Pulitzer Planner is perfect for planning into the new year.
Get 2016 started off in style with a gorgeous Custom Midori Planner Cover (use code JUSTJP for 15% off). Sabrina Alery hand makes all of these planners to order and they are all stunning!

Star Wars NEW Build A Bear Chewbacca and Mini Ewok are here just in time for you to cuddle up for the premiere of the newest Star Wars movie on December 18th. Bonus points for giving this one to her early!
And if she loves a bad boy, there's always the Build A Bear Darth Vader with Light Saber. Just sayin'…
Write sweet things with these stocking stuffer worthy ban.do Sweet Talk Pens.
Gift this Instagram worthy But First Coffee Travel Mug with a sweet Starbucks gift card or a box of her favorite tea to tell her “you got this”.
She probably already knows more about wine than you do but just in case, get Wine Folly, a guide to everything you need to know about wine.
Soft lips are oh so important but don't go for Chapstick and good lord do not put LipSmackers in her stocking. Instead, do this: Lip Shit Grapefruit Rosehip
Send her home in style with this Heys Fernando Volken Togni Cities – New York 30″ Luggage that is the most adorable thing I have ever seen but still classy and modern enough to be taken seriously.

Keeps coins, nail clippers, and other what-nots in this fun Evidence Bag Zipper Pouch. Super discreet.
For a guy who loves soda, Keurig Kold is a better sleeker way to get your sip on. Also, it leaves more room in the fridge for beer.

Moscow Mules are cool but drinking beer from a copper beer stein is, well, just better.
If he's the kind of guy who is still rocking a beard best give him the Billy Jealousy Beard Kit. Because.

The hardest person to buy for is my grandfather – he’s one of those people who already has everything he needs. I usually try to get personalized gifts for him like artwork I’ve made or engraved household items.
Lisa B. says
So, I really want to go and get those Build-A-Bear Star Wars Bears!! My Husband and daughters really love Star Wars! I personally like the Lily Pulitzer Planner and the Disney Magic Band! Thank you for sharing your guides! They are awesome!
Denise M says
The hardest person is my husband. This definitely helps, i think i am going to buy him a chewbacca
Great list! My grandparents are always the hardest to shop for. I always end up getting them gift certificates or food items.
Charity Cram says
The hardest person to buy for is my mom. I try to keep an ear to the ground through out the year of something she would like, but most of the things I catch her admiring are out of my price range. She has expensive taste!
Great gift ideas!
Amy C. says
My mother-in-law is the hardest to buy for. I’m not sure what we’ll be getting her.
I always have difficulty buying for my husband since he pretty much buys what he wants when he wants anyway. It’s more helpful when he gives me suggestions on what he wants and then I pick…this year he wants either a remote for his stereo or one of those ancestry blood line things done that shows you where your family history originates.
Kelly D says
My husband is the hardest to buy for. I have not decided on what to get him yet, but I found a few tool type ideas I like from the guides.
MizLiz BBWGeneration says
I have an eye on a FEW on this list! <3
carol clark says
my daughter and its made me cry cause her taste is so different from mine that its hard
My husband is always the hardest to shop for. He’s so content and happy, it’s great that he’s not into material things. But doesn’t make it easy for me to shop for him! lol. I’m buying him a new iPod this year with more storage, he loves music and I know he’ll appreciate it.
beverly e says
My hardest person is my brother-in-law… I get hives just thinking about it!
Katie C says
My mom is difficult to buy for. She likes gardening, but I never know what she needs. I’m going to get her a gift card to Home Depot!
amanda sakovitz says
The hardest person to shop for is my mom and I’m getting her a gift card this year.
My husband is so hard to buy for. He squawks if I spend too much and never gives me ideas. I like the watch you shared!
Heather Dawn says
My mom is always the hardest to shop for. I am going to make her something with my Cricut machine. I am going to get my son the Build a Bear Mini Ewok, though! He is too cute!
Jennifer Rote says
My boyfriend is the hardest to shop for. I might get him a monthly wine subscription.
Liz @ Downtown Demure says
My brother’s girlfriend is definitely the hardest! She loves socks, so you’ve done me a solid by suggesting Woven Pear! Awesome list.

Thomas Murphy says
My dad is the hardest to buy for. I don’t know what I am getting him.
Stacey Roberson says
My dad is usually the hardest person to shop for. He has no hobbies, so it really makes it difficult to find the right present. I usually just ask him what he wants. Not sure what I’m getting his this year, but the gift guides have definitely given me some ideas.
Techno genius son in his 30s. I can never surprise him.
this hop is giving me ideas for myself and others.
Most difficult to buy for is both my son and my husband. I think the Chewbacca will be on both their list 🙂 Thanks for the ideas.
The hardest person to buy for is my step dad. However, the gift guide for the woodworker was really helpful in giving me gift ideas.
My daughter is the hardest, she never gives us hints. She said she is always happy with what Santa brings & know he will find the right one! LOL
I do like the gift guides, gives me plenty of ideas. I am a single dad raising 5 kids an I’d say my oldest daughters (twins) are most difficult. At the age they want to choose their own clothing and everything else.
My 17 year old sister is so tough. She has everything she likes already. But these tips help!! Might take her to get mani pedis.
Jessica To says
My in-laws are the hardest to buy for. I usually get them a gift card to a restaurant.
Bridgett Wilbur says
My parents are the hardest so I usually get them a gift card for the grocery store and local restaurant.
my mother in law and I will probably get her some clothing item. Yes, this guide was very helpful.
My sister is the hardest person to buy for; I usually get her some kind of foodie item.
Leigh Anne says
My daughter is hard to shop for. Knowing that she is into crafts, I have gotten some ideas from this post.
Jennifer Priest says
Awesome! if she likes crafts, maybe go to her fave YouTube channels to find what they are using. I like socraftastic.
Nicole H. says
My husband is the hardest to shop for and the gift guides have been helpful for ideas for him.
My son lately has been very difficult to shop for. I think he’d love the Keurig Kold you mentioned above.
Good ideas. My little sister is the hardest to shop for. I still need to figure out what to get her!
Julia M says
My husband is, he always says don’t buy him anything so I rack my brain trying to figure something out. You have gave me some great ideas to make my shopping easier this year, thanks!
Cindy A. says
My mister is the hardest person to buy for. He is such a selfless sweetheart and would much rather I spend the money on myself or someone else. I will be buying him a new pair of winter boots and fun stuff from Stewart-MacDonald.
Kathy Davis says
Everyone on my list is difficult. My husband is probably the pickiest, but it’s hard to get just the right gift for my mom, sisters, and children. I think my husband would like some of the things on your list. The Keurig KOLD looks interesting. I wonder when they will start making home brewed beer.
Crystal S says
Your gift guide was very helpful! Gave me some good suggestions. I think my husband is the hardest to shop for. He never gives me any hints as to what he wants. I’m still searching for that special something for him for this holiday season!
My mom. She has everything. She seems to appreciate gifts from the heart the most – so I am praying about something unique to put together for her. Year before last we had everyone we knew write her a note and put them in a jar for her to pull out each day. I still have yet to top that!
Laurie B says
Great ideas, thanks for sharing. My husband would be the hardest to shop for because he is very picky, but we don’t buy gifts for each other any more – we don’t really need more stuff 🙂
the hardest is my husband. I am going to buy him an iPad
Carolann Leibenguth says
My dad is the hardest person to buy for, but I think he would really enjoy the craftsmanship of the Meku Men’s Zebra Wood Watch.
My 16 year old son is the hardest! He is getting a new laptop this Christmas.
Rebecca B says
My dad is still the hardest for me to buy for. All of his hobbies are expensive or odd and he goes and gets anything that he decides he needs.
Kathy Davis says
I would like the wood burning tools for my daughter, but I would like 3 Piece Clock Kit. A new project idea for me! 🙂
I would say my mom.
my inlaw, hubby and my mom, i have no idea at all , great ideas here tho. something to think about
The hardest person to shop for is my 20 year old son, I never know what he’ll like. This guide is great, he’ll love the beard kit and the shoes are just his style!
It’s hard to figure out what to get my parents. I think we’re going to get them a new ice cream scoop. Fun, I know.
Stephanie Shipley says
My sisters are the hardest to shop for. They never seem to know what they want! I think they would both love the coloring books though.
My elderly mother is the hardest person to buy for as she as she doesn’t want for much. I am thinking about a new knife set as her knives are really dull.
Sandra Ross says
My son is hard to shop for and his birthday is 3days after Christmas. I have a few new ideas now.
Jennifer Priest says
My daughter’s birthday is right around Christmas too. We started doing more experiences for her because gifts just didn’t seem to do it. Like we get a gift and then have her go do something fun with her friends, like a Disney day. This year we are taking her for a fancy Sunday Brunch.
Steven weber says
the hardest person to shop for is my dad.. this gift guide definitely gave me some new ideas.
Cathy Thompson says
My hubby is always the hardest to buy items for, he has everything, says he wants nothing! We are still trying to come up with something great, we love all the gift guides they have some fabulous ideas!
I’m that in-between age that is just slightly older than millennial and I still love everything on the guide!
My husband is hard to buy for. I will probably get him some craft beer!

Will G says
My wife is the hardest person to buy for. I can’t tell you in case she comes on this blog too!

Ellen Casper says
My 23 year old son is hard to buy for – I’ve gotten a few ideas from these guides.
aaron reck says
My partner’s dad is hard to buy for because he only likes tools.
Denise L says
The hardest person on my list is my 16 year old nephew. He like math so I got him a brainteaser game that you can play by yourself. It’s addictive. My son & and husband have been obsessed with the one we have for 3 months now.
Definitely, my Dad is the hardest to buy for. I am planning to give him gift cards this year, so he can get something he really likes.
Tina W says
My Dad is hard to shop for: he’s very picky and I swear I’ve already given him every single Thomas Kincaide jigsaw puzzle ever produced.

My mother-in-law is the hardest person to buy for. This Christmas I plan on getting her stationary. The gift guides have given me a couple ideas however.
Mary Stewart says
My granddaughter is the hardest to shop for. She’s 9 going on 29! She is in her 4th year of classes with the Houston Ballet, is in the 4th grade but reads on a 9th grade level and is a computer wiz. No pressure over here trying to figure out what she wants!
Mary Gardner says
My son is the hardest to buy for. When he wants something he gets it himself which doesn’t leave much room for gift giving. The gift guide gives me some great ideas, but I still haven’t made a definite decision as to what to give him yet.
Joan Kubes says
My husband is the hardest to buy for, I don’t know what I’ll get him yet. I do see something on here that would be perfect for my artistic sister in law.

My hubby is the hardest one to buy presents for. This guide has helped–I now have a couple of ideas!
Kelley Moore says
My Aunt is really hard to buy for!!! Every year she is the person I hate trying to get a gift for, she has everything and don’t like gift cards.
Bo Simms says
The hardest person for me to buy for on my Christmas list is my mom. She’s so difficult to please, so and she has a lot of allergies, and dislikes so this year to be safe, I will be buying her gift cards – this way she can go out and buy what she wants, and will actually like!! Love you mom!
Rebecca B says
My email is not complete in the rafflecoptor widget 🙁 It should be shortreba @ gmail dot com

Bo Simms says
My favorite item at Walnut hollow website are the wooden LOVE, Letters for the wall. Love love love it!

The hardest person to buy for, is my dad. He has everything and doesn’t want anything, but I will buy him some gift cards this year, so he can purchase for himself.
Carol Newman says
The hardest person to buy for is my daughter Mandy. She is 24 and has a 16 month old baby boy. She is very creative and fashionable and a great mum.
I’m not sure who the hardest person to shop for is for me. I love buying/making gifts, but what I find hard is nailing down who to give people. I find so many great things, narrowing it down overwhelms me. #firstworldproblems This gift guide did help remind me that my husband is in the market for a new watch! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
Amanda Whitley says
my dad is always the hardest. i think i might get him one of those wooden watches.
Sunshine G says
I like the idea of the colouring books – I think we all need some zen these days. My Mom would like one and she’s hard to buy for!
My Dad is the hardest to buy for and I plan on getting him a foodie city tour this year (although there were other great ideas here)!
