Take the Initiative and Throw a Great Birthday Party for Your Millennial FriendWhether you have a friend or coworker who is a millennial, knowing how to approach them can be a difficult task, especially if the age and generational gap is quite large. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems, and you’ll find that throwing them a great birthday party can be a very fulfilling and amazing experience.
Millennial birthday parties are best characterized by bright, happy colors, healthy food choices and lots of love and friendly support. For most millennials, it’s truly the thought that counts, and depending on their personalities, they might enjoy a low key birthday party better than a very loud one.
Consider their music preferences, and try to keep up with them. Also, make sure that your gifts are original and unique. Simple gifts like a watch or a purse might not be as satisfying to a millennial as a cool, hi-tech gadget, a well-designed, handcrafted piece or even something simple like a photo scrapbook. Planning a party that includes an adventure or activity such as a popular escape room or Pinot's Palette paint and sip class can be a lot of fun for everyone. You can even go all out and give them a great travel experience or staycation to a place where they don’t have to spend a lot of money.
For a lot of millennials, any amount of effort you put into your gift will be greatly appreciated. And you will certainly know their level of appreciation as soon as their eyes light up and they express a genuine, heartfelt “thank you.”
