Why Artisanal Gastronomical Experiences Rank As Top Gifts For Millennial Men

Millennials are more likely to look for food that has organic and fair trade certifications, with around 78% looking at the ingredient list. For the discerning millennial tastebud, going out to supper or enjoying a beer with friends can be a downer when they’re presented with highly processed foods or mass produced brews that pay no attention to the source of their ingredients. A gastronomical experience that will perk the interest of your millennial loved one has to include organic options.


Savor Those One-Off Items

There’s a very good chance that the item you’ve chosen for your loved one is not just hand crafted, but may be the only one of its kind on the market. A lucky break at brewing the perfect batch of cherry ale or curing a unique blend of fats and proteins in a never-before-tasted sausage is very possible, and savoring every last bit of it is the pleasure of the recipient alone. There is a great deal of satisfaction in knowing that there are few, if anyone else on the planet savoring that very same flavor profile.


Artisanal Options Are In Hot Demand

Whether you’re putting together a gift basket that includes 50 different flavors of beef jerky or opting for a locally sourced craft gin, it’s worth knowing that millennials don’t want to be part of the mass-produced race. Instead, they demand access to products that include local ingredients and have a handmade element to them. This lends to the uniqueness of the product, and allows consumers to truly appreciate the subtle changes in tastes and textures from different regions.


You’re Not Restricted To Mainstream

Finding a gift for someone who already has everything is a tall order, and while a fruit basket might work, there is something special about putting together a funky, off-beat spread. This is the time to consider that bottle of habanero chocolate wine from a local winery or a peach and ginger cider from the homebrew crew up the street. There’s a lot of flexibility in choosing craft items for a gift, as the artisan doesn’t have to conform to a mainstream palate in order to gain a following, as they don’t necessarily need thousands of customers to make their overheads and score some profit.


The Undeniable Effect On Sustainability

One of the best ways to boost sustainability is to have a zero-waste policy. This can apply to food as well, and for millennials, the ultimate in food gifting is putting together a collection of items that minimize waste. Examples of these include deli meats that have a tail-to-snout approach, artisanal breads that make use of wheat and grains often discarded. Pickles and jams from local farms and delis are perfect items to add to a gift basket, and for those who want to gift an entire experience, gift vouchers to farm-to-table restaurants that have wine or beer pairing evenings is a must. According to Ryan Hibbert, food-to-table restaurants are in hot demand, and expansion is on the cards.


An Opportunity To Personalize

One of the best reasons to choose a craft product as a gift is the ability to make direct contact with the creator for a more personalized experience. For instance, engraving a gin tin with the recipient’s details to create an instant collector’s item, or dedicating a six pack of beer to some key memories you have with the recipient make your gift much more unique. A personalized craft item allows that extra layer of nostalgia during special occasions.


Appreciating The Story Behind The Product

It’s not easy to relate to a product you pick up off the shelf of a mass retailer. Part of the appeal of artisanal and craft products is the fact that consumers can relate to the brand. If you know that the chocolate in your gift box is sourced from a cocoa farm just down the street, it makes the entire experience a whole lot better. For millennials, it’s not only the “what” that matters, but the “who” and “why” as well.

Buying a gift for the millennial man in your life is far easier than you might think. If it’s handmade, organic and locally sourced, you already have a winner in the bag.
