Are you a Millennial? Do you know a Millennial? Millennials are that much-maligned generation of people who are approximately in their twenties and thirties now. While I myself am not in that age range, I have worked with a ton of people who fit this description, and some of my adult kids could be described as Millennials.
From my experience, Millennials actually get a really bad rap. In fact, there are many things to love about this generation. They tend to be very idealistic and care a lot about their chosen causes. They are often resourceful and creative, and they are responsible for a resurgence of handcrafting among younger people. They are often diligent workers, doing difficult work and juggling family responsibilities. They often love the outdoors and are environmentally-conscious. I also find this generation to be very straightforward and authentic.
So, show the Millennials in your life a little love over the holidays or other gift-giving occasions with something special! I’m sharing some on-trend gifts here that are all available on Amazon.

Caboodles was the must-have item for tween girls of the 90s. This nostalgic brand has small organizer cases, such as this one, and larger train cases as well. A caboodle case would make a great presentation for other small gift items and is cute, nostalgic, and useful on its own.
Many Millennials are vinyl record enthusiasts, which is great that those old records are still getting some use. Find some old records that are still in good enough shape to be played, and give your Millennial the gift of a high quality turntable.
If you’re not a Millennial, you may not be aware that most of them spent many happy hours in public schools playing a low-tech educational video game entitled The Oregon Trail which had the kids doing things like dying of dysentery. This nostalgic game set includes three separate games and is sure to be a hit.
For the artist or crafter on your list, this portable craft caddy is a great gift. It’s understated design doesn’t scream “great-grandma’s knitting basket” so it’s perfect for a younger generation of artisans.
If there’s one thing Millennials love, it’s their specialty coffees. They may be the generation responsible for the ubiquitous coffee shop. It’s great having a really special coffee brew at home, and this definitely fits the bill! These are coffee pods designed to work with that type of machine.
Millennials are known for their love of houseplants. Many are also cooking at home and increasing their repertoire of at-home gourmet options. That’s why this hydroponic indoor heirloom herb garden is the perfect gift, especially for a small space or urban gardener.
Millenials seem to love hiking around in the great outdoors and spending their weekends finding a new adventure. A picnic set in a backpack is a clever and unique gift. I have given a couple of these myself at bridal showers. to rave reviews.
Everything you need to create a beautiful knitted shawl, including high-quality yarn and instructions. This is for an experienced knitter. Knitters love top-quality yarn. Check out the other amazing items from their store while you’re looking!
Millenials love to travel, and given the pandemic, many are doing short, responsible car trips rather than jet-setting it around the country. This guide is sure to have some great, do-able ideas for anywhere in the US.
Today is Prime Day on Amazon! YAY! Prime Day offers amazing deals for Amazon Prime members. If you’re not already a Prime member, I highly highly recommend the service. I have been a member for years now, and it’s one of the best purchases we made. The best benefit is the fast free shipping on a multitude of items. I rely on that more and more during the pandemic. Amazon lets me check a box to display only Prime items, and I get a huge selection of merchandise that will be at my home in two days with no shipping fees. If it’s important to you to support small business, Amazon also has a handcrafted category and a small business category which they will often give you a bonus for supporting. A prime membership is something that has been valuable to me and my family, and we will continue to be loyal customers. I have recently become an Amazon affiliate, meaning I receive a small compensation if you purchase from them as a result of my recommendations. I do very much appreciate your support of my blog!

Now on to the gift guide! It’s that time of year when we need to start thinking about the perfect gift for everyone on our shopping lists. Today I’m recommending some items that I personally love. Again, I’m a big Amazon customer, and I have either given or received these gifts and others from the same companies.
Finding gifts for all the women or your list can be a daunting task. Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers, a gift exchange, or a meaningful gift for someone special in your life, I’ve got some good ideas for you today.
Everyone I know loves a journal, especially a gorgeous leather one like this. A beautiful journal is always appreciated.
You’re going to see quite a bit of Kendra Scott in this gift guide. That’s because I LOVE Kendra Scott jewelry. I had never heard of the brand until I bought the abalone cuff bracelet at a small store on the beach (after much internal debate about whether I should buy something for myself, which I don’t usually do) and I just wore the thing constantly because I loved it so much! Since then, I have received a number of jewelry gifts from my family from Kendra Scott for my birthday and Christmas, and it just makes me happy. These are updated classics you can wear with anything. The brand is not so pricey that you don’t want to ever purchase, but it’s not a cheap costume either. It’s quality that has held up for me. These cobalt drop earrings are just gorgeous for someone on your list who likes statement earrings.
I also very much enjoy the C O Bigelow brand. They have a very consistent quality with all of their products, and there’s just something about that classic vintage-y packaging. This amber scented candle is a great gift.
