If you are buying something for someone who grew up in the ’90s on your shopping list, then I’m sorry that you know a millennial. Please forgive us for killing every business. Maybe we’re just acting out because you didn’t get us what we wanted for the gift-giving holidays last year. Well, you don’t have to make that mistake again if you use our guide to win over your friends and family.


Nintendo Game Boy Color-Changing Pint Glass

Price: $12
Buy from: ThinkGeek

The Game Boy was the handheld system of the 1990s. It debuted in 1989 with Tetris, and it dominated for years through the release of the Pokémon games in 1998. With this glass, you can relive that memory while also enjoying a frosty beverage.


Snorlax Bean Bag Chair

Price: $150
Buy from: ThinkGeek

Most of the biggest properties of the 1990s started in the ’80s or the ’70s, but Pokémon had the rare honor of both starting in the ’90s and reaching levels of popularity typically reserved only for Star Wars or Mario. That’s why almost any kid from this generation would still appreciate a giant Snorlax bean bag to nap on and dream of frosted tips and Austin Powers.

If you were a geeky kid in the ’90s, your Star Trek was Star Trek: The Next Generation. Other fans may have adopted this show, but you were forged by it. And I think only people who grew up next to Jean-Luc Picard and No. 1 have the moral fortitude to wear one of these hoodies, and I salute them.

As adults, we all have to look back and reckon with the forces that formed our idea of beauty. And most ’90s kids have come to accept that our standard for human perfection came in the form of Jeff Goldblum, the star of Jurassic ParkJurassic Park: The Lost World, and Independence Day. He was a nerd, an action hero, and a lover, and nothing celebrates that more than this mural of him in his famous chest-out pose from Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur adventure.

The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Chess Set

Price: $75

The Legend of Zelda is an iconic 1980s franchise, but like the people this gift guide is for, it came into its own in the next decade. A Link to the Past on the Super Nintendo and Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64 were huge, important games, and this chess set is a fine way to reminisce with a friend about those games.
