Super Last Minute Hipster Holiday Gift Guide

If you’re anything like me, you wait ’til the last minute for everything. That means you haven’t gotten anything for anyone for Christmas yet.

That makes me sound like an ungrateful brat, but the truth is, I’m poor. And lazy. However, I did send out my X-mas cards already so I’m golden in the eyes of the elderly ones in my family.

But what about you’re uber-hip peers? What do you get them last minute?

Let’s pretend it’s not 5 days before Christmas and let’s pretend that you have ample time to order holidays gifts online. Or that you have a butt load of money to pay for super fast shipping. Here are some gift suggestions for the hipster friends or the hipster friends who claim they’re not hipsters in your life.

Who doesn’t need a Dolly Parton faux black velvet poster? Who? WHO?! TELL ME! I don’t even care much for Dolly Parton but she looks smokin’ in this poster. Print by artist Kii Arens, $40 at La La Land Posters.

Did you know that Talking Heads has a new doc out? Did you know that David Byrne might be the neatest human being ever to walk the Earth? Treat the Talking Heads fanatic in your life with this delicious visual chronology of their live performances, $19.99 at Amazon.


David Lynch has a new album out. It sounds like an old man reminiscing about a life very similar to that of a David Lynch character. A perfect gift for the morbidly morose friend in your life,  $12.99 at Amazon.

The Plaid Pigeon is a craft shop based out of Austin that uses kids toys and makes them into quirky planters. Their specialties are animals and dinosaurs. Their Etsy store seems to be down, but I think you get buy them at Austin’s The Wondercraft because everyone I know bought one for a gift this Christmas. I think they’re around $15. I really know so little. Check out their Facebook page for more details.

Tentacle Mustache. Say no more. Except that at first, the nostril clips make you lose feeling in your face. Once the pain subsides, pure bliss takes over, $4.02 at Archie McPhee.

Seriously. I don’t understand hipsters love for this dude. Explain it to me, please? Notorious B.I.G. action figure, $14.99 at Amazon.

    I must say, the tentacle mustache and the child-toy planter made my day. They are so cute! Unfortunately, I also have a laziness problem, and doubt I could buy any of these in time. At least I have ideas for next year! 🙂
