Top 5 Christmas Gifts for Hipsters

Hipster Christmas Gifts: Spirit Hoods Wolf Full Hood Animal Hat
The hood is furry with wolf ears, the sides go down to make furry mittens. This adorable wolf hood has been seen on hipsters all over the internet, Audrina Patridge, Khloe Kardashian, and on Ke$ha on the cover of Paper Magazine. It is sure to keep the recipient nice and warm while looking incredibly cute. Works well for men and women. You can find the wolf hood on Amazon.com for $129. For a more affordable option, check out the long bear hat from Hot Topic for $34.

Hipster Christmas Gifts: Bicycles
What you will want to look for is a tandem bicycle if the person you are buying the gift for is in a relationship. If your favorite hipster is not in a relationship, any fixed gear bicycle or beach cruiser will do. You of course will get bonus points if it is used so look on Craigslist or at your local bicycle shop before you search for a new one.

Hipster Christmas Gifts: Books
Look for something by Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Kerouac, or Chuck Palahniuk. If you are looking for something for a female hipster, try picking up one of Sylvia Plath’s books or "Influence" by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Make sure you pick a used copy of any of these books that you decided to purchase. The easiest way to do this is to browse Amazon, then choose the option on the right side of the page that says “used”. You get bonus points if there is already writing in the margins. If you cannot find what you need on Amazon, try eBay, your local thrift store, or your local used book store.

Hipster Christmas Gifts: TOMS
TOMS are the ultimate hipster shoe. The best part about buying TOMS is that for every pair purchased, a new pair of shoes is given to a child in need. They are available for men, women, and children and even in wedding style. There are casual versions and sparkly versions. TOMS cost around $50 unless you pick up their adorable boots which are closer to $100.

Hipster Christmas Gifts: Film Camera and Expired Film
Check out the Four Corner Store to kill these two birds with one stone. They offer a really great variety of toy cameras, some of which I hadn’t even heard of before visiting their website. Some of my favorites include the Golden Half, 35mm Holga, milk/juice box cameras, and the Disderi robot cameras. The Four Corner Store is the best legitimate store online to buy expired film. If you cannot find expired film that looks good to you on there, try eBay instead.
