Wondering what the 20-somethings in your life want?
Christmas is one of my favorite days of the year. I love being with my family, drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies in our pajamas on Christmas morning. I also love opening presents! However, since I’ve entered my 20s, presents don’t bring the same excitement as when I was younger.
Part of that, I think, is now that I’m a young adult, my family isn’t so sure what to get me anymore. I still enjoy getting fun little decorations and plushies, but I don’t really have anywhere to put them or any use for them. And cash is always a nice present, but it doesn’t necessarily feel thoughtful.
That’s why I compiled a list of gift ideas with the help of some of my friends who are also in their 20s. What I found through talking with them is that that young adults have similar desires when it comes to presents. Most want something that they wouldn’t get themselves – whether it’s too expensive or just not a necessity – or something practical that they wouldn’t even think to buy themselves until they need it.
So, whether you're shopping for your grandchild, kids, niece or nephew, cousin or sibling, this list should give you plenty of ideas for thoughtful gifts for the 20-somethings in your life.
