Since they already have everything (and they’ll make a point to let you know they had it before you did), it’s tough to shop for the hipster. The key here is to buy a variation on something they already have so they think it was their idea. So whether you’re looking for ideas on what to get your boyfriend for Christmas or just a casual gift for a casual guy (that you’re totally not dating because you both like to keep things simple), here are a few gift tips.
Things to Buy A Hipster:
#1. Classic Toms shoes – Love is the New Black
A special holiday release means your favorite hipster might be the only one they know with these cool navy colorway Toms. Embrace the “one for one” movement.

#2. iPhone app magnets
Showing everyone how creative and cool you are? There’s an app for that. These would make a great stocking stuffer for the hipster on your list.

#3. Panama Esmeralda Especial coffee – in a limited edition jar
If there’s one thing hipsters like, it’s coffee. Get a limited edition jar from Stumptown Coffee Roasters. This variety of Central American coffee is so elite they roast and ship it just once a week. Can you say exclusive?
