Ask any baby boomer, and they’ll tell you that millennials are spoiled oversharers.

The latest iPhone and throwback hair clips will make nice stocking stuffers, along with maybe, oh, I don’t know, a pair of rainbow socks and a cute fanny pack. They like podcasts and young poets, avocado toast and any food item with the word “unicorn” stamped in front of it. And again, don’t forget the pink—anything and everything pink.
