  1. Rockstar Bracelet

Rockstar Bracelet from LaCkore Couture

Hipsters love to make a statement, and this Rockstar Bracelet with spiked black howlite stones lets them do exactly that. Handmade in the US, it’s the perfect piece of hipster jewelry inspired by nature and the latest trends. This design is exclusive to LaCkore Couture—you won’t have to worry about them accidentally wearing the same piece out as their other hipster friends! Limited quantities are available, making this Rockstar Bracelet an irreplaceable addition to their jewelry collection.

1. A Record Player

A record player is an obvious gift—if we know hipsters, we know they love their vinyl records! AKA those things they hang on their walls that look like massive CDs. You might as well gift them a record player so that they can put those decorations to use. We know what you’re thinking: Doesn’t everyone use their smartphone for music these days? Well, yes. However, nothing compares to how their music sounds on vinyl to your hipster friends. Don’t argue with them; just get them a new record player!

2. Vegan Cookbook

If your friend is a genuine hipster, there’s a good chance they enjoy eating vegan food. And while it might be challenging to take them out for a dinner that gives them more options than a salad, they can eat their way at home with their new vegan cookbook. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even invite them over for dinner and prepare one of the meals for them! And you get bonus points if the recipe uses kale (hipsters seem to love it for some reason).

  1. Andy Warhol Posters

Wait, who’s that? Andy Warhol, the pop art king and one of the first-ever hipsters—he’s likely your hipster friend’s favorite artist. If you frequently befriend hipsters, you’ve probably seen his work before (likely on their t-shirts underneath all of that flannel!). You know, the one with all of those bright colors—It’s that one. Look for his most popular and iconic works, like his Marilyn Monroe drawings or other ones with those cheesy Andy Warhol quotes.

3. Handmade Journal

Journals are a hipster essential. Where else will they write down their existential poems, dreams, or every other thought they have? With their phone? Obviously, you don’t know your hipster friend too well. This handmade journal is made with a vegetable-dyed hardcover and non-tree, sustainable paper that any hipster would love—hipsters love nature, right? Band together that passion for nature and your friend’s irresistible urge to write down their whimsical thoughts with a handmade journal gifted from the heart.

4. Mermaid Elle Earrings

Mermaid Elle Earrings from LaCkore Couture

If we know hipsters (and we do), they can’t resist the colorful mermaid style. These trendy (but not too trendy for the hipster in your life) are handcrafted in the USA, and we know your hipster friend can’t help but love all things local. With eye-catching shapes, bright shifting colors, and a dash of glamor, these Mermaid Elle Earrings will keep them looking their best, whether it’s daytime, nighttime, the weekend, or a weekday.

5. Beers From Around the World

Your hipster friend likely loves beer, and they probably always know just what to order when you go out with them. “I’ll have (seemingly gibberish about a complicated and sophisticated-sounding drink).” Sound familiar? Switch it up and introduce them to some new brews. You can get a six or twelve-pack of worldwide beers in a metal bucket, complete with sausage, cheese, and other snacks from Gourmet Gift Baskets.

6. Custom Flask

Speaking of drinks, no hipster can claim the namesake without their very own flask. You can customize it with their name, favorite strange hipster saying, or anything else you want. Our opinion? We like “Don’t Drink and Ride” for our hipster friends that prefer biking around the city rather than taking more modern methods of transportation. Their other hipster friends will be jealous, and they’ll remember to drink and ride responsibly.

7. Tree Growing Kit

Your hipster friend loves nature, and between their various houseplants and endless weekend hikes, what’s left to get them? A tree growing kit, of course! Help the hipster in your life add one more to their collection with a kit containing everything they need to grow a tree, even a little greenhouse. 

8. Smokey Eye Makeup Kit

You’ve seen it: the smokey eye look—every hipster’s go-to when it comes to makeup. You can help them stand out in the vast sea of neutral-toned faces with this kit from Tarte, which includes everything that your hipster friend will need to get the perfect smokey eye. There’s nothing quite like a sultry black shadow and a winged liner to complete their long-haired hipster look. Here’s a tip: If they ask you if their liner is even on both eyes, say yes (always).

9. A. Hamburger Phone

Basically everyone on the plant uses a smartphone now, but your hipster friend has to be a little different—they’re probably the only person you know that still has a landline in their home. Well, if they want to be unique, what could be better than a hamburger phone? Not much. And if it seems slightly familiar, you probably noticed one in the movie Juno (a classic hipster favorite).
