Here’s a gifting guide to real things millennials will actually appreciate. Yay 2020!
WANT: A MALE COMPANION WHO DOESN’T MANS-PLAIN
Sure, most dudes know respectful communication. A refreshing change in 2020: men who don’t wrongly explain to us what we already know, and that it’s OK that we’re more informed about certain things. Even if one party doesn’t fully know or understand, it’s totally OK!
WISH LIST: A PHONE THAT DOESN’T DIE
It’s raining, you have 1% battery and haven’t called your car yet. Shouldn’t there be tech that ensures you always have juice, no powerbank needed?
NEED: EARTH-FRIENDLY BOBA JOINTS
Need sugar fix but didn’t BYO reusable mug? There should be no-plastic options in our favourite boba or coffee outlets that don’t seriously harm the Earth. Poor turtles are choking on plastic in the ocean!
COVET: DATES WHO DON’T GHOST
Or they should, at the very least, ghost appropriately. This still happens, and it’s rude and disrespectful. The perfect way would be to appropriately explain why you need to go away or disappear, let the other person hear it and have closure, and then move on. How ironic is it that most cowards are the ghosts?
REQUIRE: A REMINDER THAT EVERY THING’S GOING TO BE OK
We thought that the year was going to go smoothly, but it didn’t. What we wouldn’t give for a constant, reassuring human by our side to recite affirmations and give us warm hugs at different points of the day. Ahh...
