It's important to know who you're shopping for when you venture out to complete your Christmas lists this festive season.

If your list comprises mostly of your fellow millennial mates or your younger millennial family members, this ever so slightly satirical gift list is the ultimate guide to shopping for the generation who has everything. 

1. AvoBath Bomb, LUSH

Avocado is the power food fuelling a generation, along with kale and quinoa.

Unfortunately for kale and quinoa, avocado looks a lot better on some toast in the ultimate breakfast Instagram picture.

Lush has a cult millennial following thanks to its' ethical ethos, so combine the two trends and give the gift of super smooth, avocado-scented skin. 

2. Brunch Top, ASOS

Speaking of the perfect Instagram photo, brunch has gained a cult millennial following, with filter-heavy snaps of mimosas, eggs benedict and artisanal coffee artfully displayed on tables taking over a large portion of the foodie worlds' feed.

Wearing your loyalties on your chest has become synonymous with the Repeal the 8th project, and now members of the global brunch club are getting in on the look.

This brunch T-shirt, €16 from ASOS, is calling out for Sunday afternoons with the girls. Rosé all day. 

3. Power brick, Amazon

Even in our technically advanced world, the imminent death of our phones battery life still hangs over us on a night out.

Make your millennial the most popular person at the party with a multiple port power brick.

Also handy for avid Snapchatters bloggers, and vloggers, living in the social media era really drains your battery.  

4. Craft Beer advent calendar, Martin's Off-Licence (€5 off with the code SHEmazing)

Somewhere around the same point in time that Urban Outfitters got a vinyl section, the world also became obsessed with craft beers.

No longer is a simple draft sufficient to quench the alcoholic thirsts of millennials', and luckily one Irish off-licence has developed a craft beer advent calendar to keep them satiated.

The advent box is literally the gift that keeps on giving, as it contains 24 different craft beers. Perfect for the alcohol snob in your life. 

5. Smart phone projector, Designist 

Seeing as no one under 25 bothers to buy a TV anymore, the cinematic experience can often be lost on a certain generation.

Keeping with the millenials obsession with all things vintage inspired, this smart phone projector is the perfect mix of old school and modern, and creates a whole new way to watch hilarious cat videos while eating kale salads.

6. Grow your own kale kit, Home Sweet Home Grown

Speaking of kale, there is nothing those foodie bloggers love more than organic, home grown vegetables.

For those with (or without) a green thumb, the Grow Your Own Kale Kit is an easy peasy way to humble-brag your way into the most elite of Irish fit fam circles.

Not only does it fall under the organic, eating clean, vegan and homemade categories, all it needs is a drop of water and a windowsill to flourish. 

7. Netflix-worthy PJs, ASOS

You should always be dressed to impress, but when Netflix and chill (alone or otherwise) is a national past time, sometimes dressing your best just means wearing matching pyjamas. 

Another one for the avocado obsessed, these veggie print pjs are ideal for their next Netflix marathon. You may as well buy them a subscription while you're at it. 

8. The Trump filter, Google Chrome

Some of the best gifts are completely free. 

The world is still recovering from the shock of Donald Trump's presidential win, and no generation was more outraged than the millennials.

Protect their precious eyes and ears from all the wrongs of the world with the genius Trump filter, which essentially deletes the mogul from existence. At least according to their laptop anyway. 

9. Drake socks, Etsy 

Drake, The Weekend and Justin Beiber are dominating the play lists of most millennials right now.

Help them wear their popular musical tastes with pride with a pair of performer patterned socks.

For those with a slightly more refined taste in tunes, this is the perfect gag gift. 

10. Bubble Wrap phone case, Ebay

Millennials are often accused of living bubble-wrapped lives safe from the harsh realities of the world.

This bubble wrap case pokes fun at the running joke, while also providing a stress reliving, therapeutic popping exercise for those days when even the best lit selfie just wont go right.

When we look at children these days, it's funny to think that they'll probably never hear a dial up connection for the Internet.

And they'll probably never understand the joy that 'Paint' on a Windows 95 computer could bring you, either.

Yet, our generation is very different from the last, and people on the social media app, Yik Yak, have been coming up with terms that define our generation or that give us that 'millennial' status.

Which one best suits you? They're all very true:
