Meet The Perennials was an article written by The What‘s Gina Pell in October 2016. It was originally published in NewCo Shift on Medium then syndicated by both Fast Company and Norway’s Aftenposten Innsikt. Perennials is a term used to describe enduring, ever-blooming, curious people of all ages not a demographic. If you are a Perennial or have a few on your shopping list this holiday season, here’s what to get them (and yourself).

ZALTO WINE GLASSES
Zalto is exquisite, cult glassware among sommeliers and wine lovers around the globe. Some claim it makes wine taste better and we also discovered by accident that an entire bottle of wine can be split between two Bordeaux stems, which gives new meaning to a glass with dinner. We bought our Zalto from our good friends at AHAlife.
