Year after year, we wait until the last minute to buy our significant other’s gifts [roll eyes]. There’s always a coworker, a roommate, a family member, etc. to buy gifts for, so we end up settling for gifts that we know could’ve been more thoughtful for our better half. This year, there’s no need to procrastinate, because we’ve put together a guide full of gifts specific to your millennial relationship style. We’ve selected some unique gifts that you and your significant other will actually love and more importantly– use.
The Netflix-and-Chill Couple
This mellow duo is an expert at relaxing, so here’s a couple of gifts that can help you both live up to your chill AF lifestyles.
For Her: Free City 3/4 Sweatpants
With a loyal celebrity following, this made in LA brand is not only comfy and oh so cute, but utilitarian. Free City makes even lounging look good with a range of bold Califrnia colors. #socal
No microwave or stove required for this on-the-go popcorn popper. Not only is this electric popcorn popper stylish, but it even has a built in butter wall that pops delicious popcorn in 5 minutes. After all, how can you netflix-and-chill without popcorn?
The Festival Couple
This is definitely a millennial duo, as festival attendance by millennials has nearly doubled in the last three years. And while this iconic duo is most likely too cool to need a gift guide, consider these gifts that will keep on giving on your next weekend escape from the daily grind.
For Her: Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel
We all know the golden rule of festivals is NO SHOWERS. But, how are you going to look cute in those mini skirts or denim shorties with hairy legs? Showerless Shave gel, duh. It’s not sticky at all, clump-free and it distributes evenly without a mess. If there’s any excess left, you can rub it in as a gel or salve for your legs. NO cleanup required.
For Him: North Gear Camping Mars
Boys love toys. That will never change–embrace it now, and give him a festival toy he can brag about. This waterproof, 4 man dome tent is lightweight and strong, but also easy to assemble. #yourewelcomebae
The Social Media Couple
Millennials are all about the digital age with a new social media platform being introduced pretty much every few months. Some couples are totally inspirational to follow, and they even make a living out of it (like @hungryhipsters, can you teach us your magic?). So for the social media savvy partner in your life, try these gifts:
An affordable clip on lens that’s compatible with more than just the iPhone (everyone has at least one green bubble in their life). With its wide angle and ability to clip on the front or rear camera of your device, can you say hello group selfie?
Because what’s worse than your phone dying and not being able to document your life on social media? Gift this portable charger with a lightning cable, that has the ability to charge multiple devices, AirPower, and other important features.
The Vegan Couple
This is a millennial trend we can all get behind, and these days we all have a vegan in our life to buy gifts for. If you’re a total carnivore, you might need a little guidance for gifting your earth and body conscious friends. The best thing about these gifts is that they’re gender neutral.
For Her: Vegan Cuts Snack Box Subscription
Ten or more vegan snacks delivered right to your door monthly. Free shipping and you can cancel anytime.
For Him: Sow and Grow Seed Starter Kit
