Funny gifts for millennials this Christmas

Millennials are now one of the hardest groups to buy for. With the majority of them now working and able to buy themselves the basics, how do you choose a gift for someone that has everything they need?

The answer to this is to buy funny gifts. Something semi-practical and entirely entertaining. So here’s our breakdown of funny gifts for millennials this Christmas.

*Note at the time of writing, all gifts are available for next day delivery right up until the 16th December as long as they are ordered by 7pm unless otherwise specified. For more information please double check the retailers websites.

 

1) Sushi Socks 

sushi-socks-funny-christmas-presents

Amazing sushi socks for any sushi fan
£8.99 per pair or £39.99 for all 7

As we all know, no Christmas is complete without a pair of novelty socks. And what could be better than a pair of socks with sushi on them? Choose from 7 different designs, including top favourites salmon sushi, tuna sushi, prawn, masuzushi, octopus, red caviar and of course traditional Japanese egg. Each pair rolls up to look like an actual sushi dish and when worn displays the deliciousness of Japanese cuisine at its finest. Especially good for people who have smelly feet as they’ll finally be able to have an excuse!

Each pair is made from soft polycotton and they come in one size fits most (22 – 27cm)

 

2) Star Wars Themed Light-Up Chopsticks

Choose your allegiance with colours: Yoda Green, Darth Red or Luke Blue
£16.99

Continuing with our Asian theme we have some Light Sabre chopsticks. Officially licensed by Lucas Films, these bad boys are ready to light up at the sight of every hungover Chinese takeaway day. Perfect for people living on their own, or even better as a gift to people living together. Let each meal become a battle to remember.

3) The Ultimate Beard Bib

beard-bibs-funny-christmas-presents

 

No millennial hipster male is complete without a hipster beard, much to the disappointment of whoever has to clean the sink after a tidy up. Bring him back to his childhood days with a bib, except this time the bib catches all those stray hairs that seem to lurk in the soap, sink crevices and the floor for days – or even weeks past his last shave. These bibs have handy neck straps which link through to suction cups which can be attached to any mirror.

Bibs come in either white or black (we recommend white as it makes it easier to clean – unless his beard is grey). They also come with a nice little travel pouch for trips over to the parents, girlfriend or for their next business trip.

 

4) Calm the Fuck Down Tea
calm-the-fuck-down-tea-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennials
It’s been a difficult year for millennials. As the largest percentage of the workforce they are surely facing daily work stress as it is, but add to that an abundance of celebrity deaths to being completely outvoted on matters such as Brexit or Trump, you can be sure that your loved millennial has been struggling. A tin of calm the fuck down tea is a great way to keep them entertained – and calmer – every time they go to make a cuppa.

The tea is caffeine free so is perfect before going to bed. It’s made from soothing Camomile, Passion flower petals, Lemon Balm, Anise, Cinnamon, Orange Pieces, Hops, Roobios and Hops. Highly suggested to drink as is – without milk or sugar.

 

5) The Master English Breakfast All-In-One Cooking Pan
master-english-breakfast-pan-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennials
With an unhealthy lack of free time and a built in intolerance to ineffectiveness, the multi all-in-one cooking pan is perfect for millennials. It’s so good, Tom Daley has even endorsed it. If that’s not enough to convince you then I’m not sure what is. Save your beloved millennial the time and energy of cleaning up to five pans for breakfast with this wonderful breakfast pan.
It’s clever design means the middle section heats up 15-20% hotter than the outside areas, which makes it idea for cooking bacon, sausages or fish. The outside areas are perfect for eggs, potatoes, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes or any other ingredient that belongs in their breakfast of champions.

>This pan is made from die-cast aluminium with a double non-stick coating, meaning cleaning is a total breeze. It’s also dishwasher friendly, meaning it’s even quicker and easier to clean.

6) A Flashing Pair of Balls (wait, it’s not exactly what you think…)
pair-of-bike-balls-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennials
 Next up on our list of funny gifts for millennials features a rather rude yet entertaining way to keep safe. That’s right, a flashing pair of balls for your lovely bike riding millennial. With the clocks back and weather that seems to be perpetual darkness, safety whilst biking is of everyone’s utmost concern. And what better way to keep safe than with a flashing pair of bollocks that dangle and jiggle as they go over speed bumps?

These balls are made from water resistant high grade silicon and can be switched off with a (gentle) squeeze. Three light modes allow the red LED inside to run continuously, with a slow flash or with a fast flash. They’re powered by 2 CR2032 batteries which are easily replaceable and the batteries last for approximately 100 hours on solid light mode, or 190 hours whilst flashing. If you think these are too rude – they were fully funded within 3 days on their KickStarter launch – showing the world is ready for a bit of entertainment.

7) Toast Shaped Heated Pillow

heated-pillow-toast-shaped-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennials

£29.99

>Does your millennial have an obsession with toast? If so, butter them up with this toasty toast shaped cushion. It’s even smiling because it’s so comfy and warm.

Chargeable via a micro-USB cable, this little smiling toasty cushion stays hot for 2-3 hours, warm for 2-4 hours and lukewarm for up to 8 hours, making it a perfect replacement for those rather boring hot water bottles. It’s plush and extremely soft and is the perfect winter cuddling companion.

8) The Ray Gun Nose Hair Trimmer

ray-gun-nose-hair-trimmer-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennialsLive in denial of ageing with a nose hair trimmer shaped like a Ray Gun
£12.99

As we get older, we find our bodies are starting behaving in ways we don’t expect, even when we still feel like children on the inside. Let your millennial live in denial of ageing by making this rather sad experience of removing unwanted excess nostril hairs a lot more fun. Instead of violently plucking nose hairs and crying in front of the mirror, all the owner needs to do is pull the trigger on this baby to shave away all the shame. It works fantastically on any unwanted ear hair as well – double win!

It comes in red and runs off of a single AA battery (not included).

9) A bottle of Unicorn Tears (more commonly known as Gin Liqueur)
unicorn-tears-bottle-of-gin-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennialsLet the tears of unicorn ignite a drunken evening

This gin liqueur is made from genuine Unicorn tears at a top secret location using free range Unicorn by Firebox. Unicorns are force fed tonnes of citrus fruit, along with juniper berries, boxes of coriander and pieces of licorice. Combined with their brand new emotional harvesting technology, this bittersweet gin experience comes with a dazzling glittery appearance, guaranteed to blow the mind of anyone who consumes it. Simply swirl the bottle before opening to behold its shimmering majesty.

*No unicorns were harmed during the unicorn tear extraction process and the gin produced is even 100% vegan.

10) A hot & cold holdable, customised with any face you’d like!

heated-holdable-with-customised-faces-funny-christmas-presents-for-millennials

£14.99

All you need to do is upload a good and clear picture of any face with our friends at Firebox. They’ll then get this printed quickly so it can be sent over to your favourite millennial.

These awesome bags also work as a cold compress – simply put it into the fridge to keep cool.

Once armed and loaded, they’ll be introduced to their team mates and meet the opposing team (roughly 45 people in total). After a bit of friendly banter, the teams are separated and missions are put into place.
