If you're looking for a gift for someone born after 1980, these presents just might be the perfect option.

Beyond smartphones and tablets, millennials are interested in new gadgets that can help them in their daily lives. Some tech-oriented gifts for millennials include all-in-one device docks, touchscreen texting mittens and streaming-centric tablets.

Aside from a passion for tech products, millennials also have a soft spot for pop culture references. This includes anything from social media-themed coasters to Netflix-inspired couch cushions.
