How do you get a gift for someone who knows about everything before it's 'a thing'? The person who has superior taste in clothes, music and art in comparison to everyone else you know.
Buying a Christmas gift for a hipster is most certainly a difficult task, but don't worry. While their taste may be unique and eccentric, there are presents that most hipsters will love. Think bike riders essentials kits, beard grooming products and sustainable items.
We've scoured the virtual high street for some of the best Christmas gifts for the hipsters in your life. They'll be happy to hear that someone finally gets them.
Best gifts for grown-up hipsters
1. Wild Wood Retro Telephone
Anything retro is catnip to the hipster and this bright red 1960s style non-mobile phone is just the thing to ring their bell.
2. Men’s Society Bike Riders Essentials Kit
Hipsters like bikes so this little kit of essentials will make a great stocking filler. Inside the dapper tin they'll find trouser clips (so hipster), a poncho, muscle rub and chafing cream. We don't want to think about that last one, but it's in there.
3. How To Be An Artist
Help your hip friend tap into their creativity with this book by Michael Atavar. They'll learn techniques to embrace their inner artist and build a regular practice.
4. Hornit Clug Bike Rack
Sticking to the cycling theme, this gadget for storing a bike in a small space is very cool. It may be tiny but it works like a charm to hold their bike up against the wall. Genius.
5. Personalised Ring Making Workshop with Prosecco for Two at Posh Totty Designs
Hipsters like authenticity so getting back to basics and going homemade is right up their street. Give them the gift of a new skill by sending them to a ring making workshop.
6. Copenhagen Grooming Beard Growth Kit
Just because it's a cliché to say that a lot of hipsters have beards doesn't make it untrue, so if they're struggling to grow theirs to full lumberjack proportions then this kit by Copenhagen Grooming will be a welcome gift on Christmas morning.
7. Mustard Boombox Speaker
By placing their smartphone into the dock of this speaker they can play their favourite tunes (by bands you won't have heard of) as loud as they want. It's the perfect combination of old skool and new skool technology.
8. Braun Pocket Calculator
Nobody needs a pocket calculator anymore. But we just know that any design conscious hipsters out there will love this Braun re-issue.
9. Ellen Hayward Candle Holders
Anything quirky will go down well with a house-proud hipster, so what could be better than candle holders? Coming in a variety of animal options and a king and queen, these holders by Ellen Hayward will make an eye-catching addition to their decor.
10. Lomography Diana F+ with Flash 10th Year Edition Camera
A cult classic camera from the 1960s with a huge impractical flash that shoots with actual film? It's a no brainer. As Lomography themselves say, "Fill your frame with intense saturation, moody vignetting and amazing analogue surprises."
11. Rough Trade Club LP Subscription
Now this is a great idea for your music loving mates. Sign them up to a three, six or twelve month subscription to the Rough Trade Club and the legendary record store will send them a surprise vinyl release each month. There's no need to know what's hot, as the Rough Trade experts will do that for you.
Clothing and accessories
12. Quay AustraliaClear Lens ‘Cheat Sheet' Frames
Do they need glasses? No. Will they wear glasses anyway? Yes. So, why not get them these wonderfully framed ones by Quay Australia?
13. & Other Stories Organic Cotton Denim Tie Shirt
Because denim on denim is of course very hipster. They'll look super cool and stylish and can accessorise it to suit their personal style too.
14. Patagonia Black Hole Waist Pack in Smolder Blue
Hipsters were early adopters of the re-vamped bumbag fad (naturally) but this one combines the trend with the hipster's love of an outdoor wear brand - a perfect storm of a present.
15. French Connection dotted bow tie
A polka dot bow tie is a wardrobe must-have. They probably have a few, but one more can't hurt, or if they don't then they need one, clearly. Be prepared to see it worn with a clashing print shirt.
16. Urban Outfitters Dark Ombre Stripe Jumper
The fact Urban Outfitters describes this as a "retro-inspired jumper" explains why a hipster would want to wear it. Hadn't you heard? Ironic fashion is a thing.
17. Topshop Bleach Pleated Mom Jeans
Hipsters are all obsessed with the early 1990s and these mom jeans come complete with the old unflattering pleating of that era. They could have come straight off the set of Saved By The Bell.
18. Church's Pembrey glossed-leather loafers
Slightly preppy, slighty geeky and a total staple for the hipster girl. You'll make the holiday season extra special by getting them a fresh pair.
19. Veja V-10 Rubber-Trimmed Leather Sneakers
Eco-friendly trainers made with natural rubber that's sustainably sourced from the Amazonian rainforest = stylish and woke. Just like your hipster loved ones.
20. Casio A168WG-9EF Gold Plated Digital Watch

Food and Drink

A bit of Swedish design will go down well, so how about helping them stay hydrated with this water bottle by Volvo? Yes Volvo. Whether they like it ironically or not, the point is they'll like it. Especially because it's made from BPA-free plastic so is sustainable too.
26. Mast Brothers Almond Butter Chocolate
Even beatniks have a sweet tooth, but with this chocolate made in the hipster haven of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, they'll know it's got street cred. Plus the Mast Brothers in question have got huge beards.
