Getting gifts for the young adults in your life might seem difficult, but these days there are an array of options from which to choose. From technology and kitchen supplies to new furniture and décor for a new apartment, there are tons of ideas for the young adult on your gift list this holiday season or another occasion.
Start with these seven ideas and you’ll be sure to find something to please even the pickiest of gift-getters on your list.
1. Apple AirPods
What young adult doesn’t love listening to their favorite songs while commuting to work, cleaning the house or performing other mundane tasks? Apple AirPods are a great gift for millennials and Gen Zers alike. With wireless Bluetooth connectivity and hands-free capabilities, these earbuds are a godsend when you’re on the go or wanting to make a phone call. The young adult in your life will appreciate this gift, as they can easily charge their Apple AirPods and use them on the go without worrying about annoying wires getting in the way.
2. Nintendo Switch Lite
Perfect for the hardcore gamer, a Nintendo Switch Lite is the newest version of the system and offers a pocket-sized way to play tons of games both online and offline. Users can game at home or on the go, as well as play their favorite games or even use streaming services like Hulu to watch their favorite shows and movies.
3. Furniture for a New Apartment
Know anyone moving into a new apartment sometime soon? Furniture is always a great gift for any young adult with newly acquired digs. Keep them lounging in style with a trendy piece of furniture they’ll be glad to receive or something that will go nicely with their décor. There’s plenty to consider when it comes to furnishing a new apartment, so think about what the young adult in your life might want and/or need.
4. Gift Cards
You can’t go wrong with gift cards, and you can get one for almost anything. Plus, if you’re not sure exactly what kind of things the young adult in your life is into, opt for a simple Visa or MasterCard gift card. But say you have some inkling of an idea of what they might enjoy. In that case, buy them a gift card from their favorite store or for a subscription music streaming service like Spotify or Pandora. A gift card to a restaurant is another good idea. They gotta eat, right?
5. A Subscription Box
Monthly subscription boxes are growing in popularity, and you can find several different kinds that suit the tastes of the young adult in your life. From craft beer and vegan beauty products to organic snacks and fancy socks, you can find a subscription service for just about anything. For the bibliophile and growing adult in your life, buy them a book of the month subscription box or a subscription to a company that specializes in razor and shaving products, respectively.
Know someone who’s constantly video recording their life experiences? Then a GoPro would be the perfect gift for any adrenaline junkies and videographers in training. While a GoPro with all the bells and whistles can cost upward of $300, you can find a standard one for under $75 that’s just as great. Don’t forget a case to go with it.
7. Household Items
Household items like coffee makers (or K-cup machines), water filters or toaster ovens can make great gifts for young adults who have just moved into their own place. Indeed, practical household gifts are always a great idea, so find something your loved one will appreciate and could use to make their life a little easier.
Now that you know what’s out there when it comes to shopping for young adults (male or female), you can begin compiling ideas of what best suits their needs and desires and start narrowing down your choices. By using these suggestions, you’ll be sure to find something that makes them happy
