Gifts For Generation X

Yeppers! That’s me in 1985!



I recently went to a 40th birthday party and everyone in the room started sharing what kind of music, games, tv shows, and so forth that they loved, and then we starting teasing each other about what generation we were from.  We finally figured out after some debate, that we had a some Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials participating in this lively conversation.  🙂


I happen to to be in the Gen X category, but I personally prefer to say that I am from the MTV Generation and here are a few of the things that I remember and believe are the perfect gift for any Generation X-er!



I Want My MTV T-Shirt



MTV used to be just that, music videos, and No reality shows!  It was a new way to bring life to the current musicians of the day, and as we used to say, “It was totally awesome”!

One of the first videos that I remember was, “Brass In Pocket” by the Pretenders, but Michael Jackson’s, “Thiller” video and album will always hold a special place in my heart.





Classic MTV T-Shirt @Amazon – $15



Arcade Games






Retro Arcade Handheld Gaming System @ Amazon $18



If you wanted to find your boyfriend back in the 80’s, all you had to do was was find the closest arcade game.  LOL  Seriously, who remembers playing, “Donkey Kong” for the first time, or my personal favorite, “Centipede”?   The above handheld retro arcade gaming system is the ultimate gift for any gamer on your list.



Saturday Morning Cartoons



Who can forget the classic Saturday morning Hannah-Barbera cartoons such as:  Tom & Jerry, Hong Kong Phooey, Jabberjaw, and The Great Grape Ape Show?


It didn’t matter how many times these cartoons aired, my sister and I sat right in front of that tv ready to go!  Here’s some fun collectable gifts below:

My Top 3 Gen X Movies


If your a Gen X-er, then you  probably have your favorite movie choices of that time, and here’s mine:



Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and finally Fast Times At Ridgemont High.



The Breakfast Club Mug 





The Breakfast Club Mug @Amazon $20



Only a Gen X-er would understand the meaning behind the picture on this mug.  It’s for all of us basket-cases, brains, athletes, criminals, and princesses out there.  🙂



Sixteen Candles – Long Duk Dong Action Figure

Fast Times Ridgemont High Tasty Waves Shirt

And finally, X-ers socialized, worked, and ate at our local mall.  It’s a shame that things just aren’t the same anymore, because the kids today are missing out on actually having face to face fun with their friends.   Just saying.


I hope that you liked going down memory lane with me, and I know that there is so much more that I didn’t mention, so please feel free to share your favorite moments of being a Generation X-er in the comments below.

Although the wedding day is very special, it’s the ring that let’s everyone know that you found your someone special in life.  In my own love story, I’m going to tell you that I lost my wedding ring twice.  You heard it, and how that happened I have no idea, but I did, and I was young, and didn’t have insurance on it.  Ouch!  Having said that,  I decided to replace it with something that had some bling, without the price.  I opted for a simple 1 ct. 14K gold band ring with simulated diamonds, that if it were real deal, would cost me over $2000 today.  In reality I got this simple beauty for the super saving price of $200.  Cha-Ching!  🙂          





I have had this ring for over 20 years now, and it looks just as good as when I purchased it all those years ago.  In fact, I have bought several other pieces though out the years, and I am a huge fan of all things big, bold & beautiful without the huge price!   AND this brings me to your wedding day and how you can save on your jewelry accessories for yourself and your bridal party.
