The Millennial Girl's Guide to Gifts

Last week I met Michelle of MichMash in person! It was fun. It was exciting! When preparing for such a iconic event I knew I had to get her a present. And I wanted said present to be silly, but also something she (hopefully?) would like.

Thus I decided to gift Michelle with the most generic gift as possible. Things that would both scream "I'M A MILLENNIAL" while also proportionally raising the her "trendy" status meter by several hundred points.

Of course I went to target. And, consequently, my shopping trip helped me decide to write:

  • Something with owls

Owls are in, right?

Also, if you don't know many of Michelle's stories on her blog are about her embarrassingly spilling something on herself. Thus, Michelle, it will ease your mind to know this item is child proofed. My only fear is that somehow you won't be able to open it.

  • Obligatory hipster item. 

This hot-air balloon printed shirt with a collar should work.

  • Item related to mustaches. 
  • A scarf. 

I don't think you can get more generic then a scarf. I mean, its like the millennial girl's wet dream, amiright? And since I was already there, I bought one for myself as well. Because, I totally need more neck bling in my life.
  • Something pastel, polka-dotted or chevron. 

Because you want your gift to look like it came straight from a baby shower.

  • A snarky card.

Because your an adult. Also, I forgot to take a picture of it. Oh well.

  • And last but not least, a copy of the most recently viral teenage novel of dystopian nature. 

Because, books. (you can also substitute classic novel, no one reads it anyway)

So yeah, that pretty much sums it up!

(Also acceptable gifts: some kind of hair product, anything bedazzled with either glitter or cheesy band members, any brand of nail polish and, of course, beef jerky)

What would you buy?

Generically, picking out gifts for girls is a piece of cake! However, I still struggle to figure out the perfect gift on an individual basis...

Haha, I love it. I totally almost bought that button-up shirt for myself (for a recent interview) but decided to be boring and got a striped one instead.

You are a great gift giver! :)
