Hipster Holidays: Five Ironic Gifts for Scenesters

Unless we're going to physically see one another on or around the holidays, exchanging gifts isn't necessary. But if you insist on spending money, hipster holiday cards are a nice inexpensive gesture. The particular card we found on Etsy features a young, thin Santa on a green fixed-gear bike. He's wearing matching sunglasses and a plaid flannel shirt under his red coat. We're sure our friends at Village Voice in New York will get a kick out of Ho Ho Hipster.
We learned that coffee and camera lenses don't mix well after spilling a Starbucks fuckachino on our friend's Nikon earlier in the year. But that was several months ago, and we think it's Okay to joke about it now. We're getting him a Canon zoom-lens mug that looks just like the spendy one we destroyed.
One anonymous reviewer on the Urban Outfitter's web site said he's "the envy of all his friends," and the pillow cases were "big enough for (his) new memory foam pillows." If a memory foam mustache pillowcases are good enough for Prince Irony, your hipster couple friends will surely dig this quirky bedding find.

We were at hipster bar one night when our friend asked for a light. She clenched a purse under her left arm, and held a PBR tallboy and unlit cigarette with her right hand. "I'd die without PBR and Parliament Lights," she quipped. Well little lady, you're going to love this necklace.

We've met several folks -- some obvious, others not so much -- that sell weed. But there's one sweet lady dealer who deserves special attention. She's reliable, fair, and dope blunts, literally. We're buying her a pack of marijuana silly bands, and an industrial-size box of Ziplocs.
