I don't believe I'm alone in thinking that presents are probably one of the best parts about celebrating your birthday each year. Who doesn't want to be showered with love, gifts, cake, and confetti for being born? I'm all for it, but when the tables are turned and it's you who's doing the shopping, it's a little more difficult. Instead of opting for the coolest Barbie you see at the toy store like you did when you were a kid, there are things about birthday presents that millennials think about that prove the struggle can be all too real.
No one could have guessed that a birthday invite also came with endless questions and thoughts that fill your head. These are the things you never imagined you'd have to worry about with something so simple as buying a gift. There's the question of how close you are to the person who's celebrating. You also want to make sure you choose the absolute best gift around for your bestie.
For anyone who thinks, "It's just a birthday present," they don't understand that there's actually a lot of thought that goes into it all. Don't let the gift dilemma stop you from partying, though. The next time you get an invite, or when someone special in your life has an upcoming birthday, know that you're not alone if you're immediately asking yourself any of these eight questions.
