Millennials are now the largest generation and approximately 80 million strong, and all of these lovely, if not opinionated and particular, people are on someone's gift list. So CoffeeHouseExpress.com performed a study to develop a Wish List of gifts that would make any millennial happy (not an easy task, to be sure).

Our approach was to commission one of our own millennial employees, who interviewed her friends and companions (what millennials call their "squad") to get real-world answers to a real-world problem: what do you buy the person who thinks they deserve everything?*

1. GoPro

*Before you millennials get all huffy about these little jabs, just remember that you are also one of the most sarcastic generations to ever exist. Accept this in the spirit with which it was given. Oh, and be thankful for the people who care enough to ask what you want.
