I got this request via Twitter: “Any plans to do a gift guide for the dapper artsy-type people in our lives? I’m totally stumped for my brother-in-law and could use some ideas.” My response: “I suspect he may be suffering from hipsterism. But it’s okay! I can help.”
But Megan, you might respond, isn’t “hipster” a bad word? Meh, I’ll say back to you, that’s debatable. Living in LA, I’m surrounded by hipsters, and I’ve seen the hipster backlash go from “don’t call us that,” to “okay, yeah, that’s totally me.”
Forget skinny jeans and slouchy beanies, these gifts will make even the pickiest hipster say, “okay, yeah, that’s totally me”…
Made out of locally sourced and quality genuine leather, the elegant Fyxation Yoga Mat Holder was designed to make the transport of your yoga mat (or blanket?) comfortable yet stylish, whether you’re on your bike or on foot.
The Crosley Cruiser Portable 3-Speed Turntable (in tweed) is perfect for the picky music snob who only likes listening to vinyl. Now their music selection can be “portable.”
The Coffeesock Coldbrew Kit is a reusable, organic cotton filter and jar, for perfect cold brew every time!
Show them that you appreciate their perfectly cultivated facial hair with the “Grave Before Shave” Beard Pack.
Spreading the message of rainforest conservation, saving the environment by not using plastic bottles, AND a weird drawing of a sloth? This water bottle has it all.
Mod Cloth calls this the “please ring doormat” I call this, “hi, a dapper hipster lives here.” It’s awesome.
Style snobs be loving their fashion inpsiration. Gift them the “Vintage Menswear: A Collection from The Vintage Showroom” by Josh Sims.
How about these Pint Glasses That Stay Cold? Perfect for the mixologist, the gift set includes four extra freezing “dimples” that magnetically attach to glass. They’re similar to whiskey stones (also a good gift idea!), but no washing required.
This is probably my favorite thing I’ve found for this gift guide. The Big Lebowski coaster set is really going to tie the room together for the movie snob in your life.
These also come in:
- Pulp Fiction Tile Coaster Set
- American Psycho Drink Coaster Set
- Breaking Bad Drink Coaster Set
- Legendary Movie Film Directors Drink Coaster Set
- ’80s Movies Drink Coaster Set
- Star Wars Drink Coaster Set
- Retro Music Drink Coaster Coaster Set
Cord Tacos are pretty much the coolest small gift that everyone will not only love, but they totally need and don’t even know it. Then they could say they had a cord taco before it was cool.
Any brave self-identified hipsters in the house? What are you most wishing for this year?
