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”!
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:
Here’s a t-shirt that displays many of the retro cartoon classics and it’s available in all sizes, including plus!
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:
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. 🙂
Again, Long Duk Dong is a classic icon of my generation, and if your into classic pop movies, check out all of these other fabulous gifts here: Funko Gifts
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.
