Unique & Trendy Gifts for Millennials

Updated by Akina Chargualaf

Millennials are a diverse group—In fact, according to the Pew Research Center , they are the most diverse adult generation. Children of the internet who grew up as the world rapidly got smaller, they have a wide variety of backgrounds, interests, and beliefs. This can make shopping for gifts for millennials that much harder, since there’s no “one-size-fits-all.” Add in TikTok trends and it’s easy to get lost in the ever-shifting cultural tides.

But never fear, there are a lot of things millennials have in common. They’re often stressed out , leading busy lives and trying to balance work and self-care, so gifts that are convenient and save them time and effort can be extremely heartfelt. Millennials are known for valuing experiences over things , like trying a new recipe, learning about a new part of the world, or trying out a new skincare routine. They also notoriously hate wastefulness and prefer sustainable products, which is perfect when you can tailor clean gift boxes to their exact tastes. Whether you have a wanderlust traveler, ambitious entrepreneur, or yoga enthusiast on your shopping list, a subscription gift box is the perfect way to tell them that you love them.

Still unsure? Don’t worry—we have curated the ultimate gift guide to help you navigate your holiday shopping.

The Cratejoy Marketplace features a range of subscription boxes that support small businesses and green products your millennial will love you for considering. Here are a variety of mindfulness subscription box services, foodie crates, beauty boxes , or grooming kits , there's a box that everyone can enjoy!
