A Gen Z-Fueled Wish List Of The Coolest Holiday Gifts

Just because Gen Z is known for their pro-thrift, anti-consumption ethos doesn’t mean they don’t want a few (but not too many!) shiny gifts under the tree just like the rest of us. We asked our friends at Copycatted, a product recommendation community for Gen Z, what’s topping their holiday wishlist (beyond world peace and an end to climate change). 
Sustainability, unsurprisingly, is a big trend, with Parade underwear and Reformation swimwear just a few of the more ethically-minded products mentioned. Self-care gifting was also a reoccurring theme; a great option if you’re gifting on a budget ($22 Glow Recipe sleep masks) or...not ($320 Sleeper nightgowns).
So whether you’re stumped about what to give the resident cool teen in your life or are looking to make your own wish list a little bit cooler, check out what teens across America (and beyond!) want this year.
