Gifting for millennials can be hard! They can be very particular about what they like and sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. While you can surprise the millennial in your life with a fresh piece of avo toast in the AM, if you are looking for a gift idea that will last longer than their morning cup of coffee, here are eight group gift ideas for millennials that are sure to impress.


For The Music Lover: A Musical Upgrade

A good pair of earbuds is great for on-the-go listening, but music can be much better enjoyed out loud! Gift your friend the beautiful Victrola 8-in-1 Bluetooth Record Player & Multimedia Center this holiday and upgrade both their musical experience and their living room vibes. The record player not only plays their old vinyl, CDs, and cassettes, but also has FM radio, an aux and headphone jack, and Bluetooth for audio streaming from their smartphone. Not to mention its elegant and timeless finish, making it a perfect conversation starter.


If they’ve already got a record player, gift them an opportunity to expand their record collection with a 6-Month Vinyl Me Please Subscription! Each month they will receive a hand-picked record sure to start up some great spur-of-the-moment dance parties.


For The Quarantined Cook

Looking for a way to upgrade a chef’s cooking experience? Gift the Click and Grow Smart Garden 3 to let your loved one experience the difference fresh herbs make in a meal. The growing also doesn’t stop at seasoning. The Click and Grow Garden allows the planter to grow any type of seed in the system, meaning the chef can grow anything from salad vegetables to fresh flowers for the table centerpiece.


I know we all wish that we could have just one day in Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen (well, minus the shouting). Share the best parts of the Gordon Ramsay experience with a Masterclass Cooking Subscription. Not only will your friend be provided with the best possible tips and tricks of the kitchen, but will also have access to thousands of additional courses in subject areas from Wellness to Art.


For The Longing Traveler

The right accessories for a big trip (the perfect sundress, a killer pair of sunglasses) get me 10x more excited to travel, even if I don’t have travel plans yet set. Gift The Carry-On to ensure that your loved one’s next trip’s wardrobe is carried around the airport in style. The suitcase is built with a durable polycarbonate hard shell and 360° spinner wheels that ensure a smooth ride, making it built to last. This group is a wanderlust at heart, a reliable carry-on suitcase is one of the many great gift ideas for millennials.


Though our opportunities to safely travel are limited during COVID, surprising a friend with an Airbnb gift card allows for the perfect trip to be planned. Airbnb gift cards never expire, allowing them to plan however far in advance they’d like! The gift card can also be used for Airbnb Virtual Experiences, which will allow for travel-like experiences to be had at any home.


For The Homebody

Who doesn’t like scrabble? This chic game set by Tubibu allows for play with roommates and friends, and even doubles as a sick decor piece. Does your friend have a different game of choice? Check out the other set options ranging from Tic Tac Toe to a simple yet modern Dart Board.


Remember when beanbags were all the rage in middle school? It felt like everyone had one somewhere in their basement or bedroom. Bring back the comfort and chill with a Chill Sack Bean Bag Chair ($164.99). With over 30 cover colors to choose from, this piece is sure to bring a pop of color and fun into your friend’s living space! Or go the extra mile and get even more people to contribute toward the gift, and opt for the SuperSac ($927.50). I’ve tried it, it’s worth every penny.


Make your gift go further 

Now that you’ve learned these gift ideas for millennials, make your gift go further! When setting up a group gift for a loved one this holiday season, consider having the extra funds received go toward a charity that provides for the less fortunate during these difficult times. Here are some great organizations to donate to this holiday.

The Sentencing Project

The Sentencing Project is a research and advocacy group aiming to promote reforms in sentencing policy while advocating for alternatives to incarceration.

World Central Kitchen 

Covid-19 has left many Americans food insecure. Chef José Andrés’ charity has partnered with more than 2,400 restaurants in 400 cities across the country to provide restaurant staff jobs that create and distribute meals for those in need.

Make a military child smile this holiday season through Operation Christmas Spirit. Donors can “adopt” a military family and provide gifts or gift cards. You can also opt to donate money online and allow volunteers to do the shopping for you.
