It's Monday. You're drinking your morning cup of organic, locally roasted coffee, checking your calendar, and mentally preparing yourself for the week. You look ahead and right there on your schedule is the Hipster Christmas Party that you are just SO not ready for! You wonder, for the life, why this particular one sneaks up on you so quickly every freaking year.
You immediately start going through the list in your head: What to wear, how to do your hair, what beanie you're going to wear, what side dish you're going to make, and as you're mentally creating a grocery list in your head that likely includes quinoa of some variety, you realize that right there, in the fine print on the invite, it says you're supposed to bring a gift valued at $25. Panic sets in. There's so much pressure to get the "good" gifts these days. There is nothing worse than seeing your gift left in the white elephant pile, being tossed around like a hot potato because it's made in China, not the USA, it's not organic, and it's not fair trade! And these are not just regular people - we're talking about Hipsters! They will judge the crap out of you, even though they say they're totally chill.
Okay, okay, we know we seem like we are slamming Hipsters here, but as Hipsters ourselves, it's just one of those things. You know - you can totally talk bad about your little brother, but the second your friend does, it's ON. It's like that.
Don't worry hippie, we've been there a time or two.... and so we put together this list of our favorite gifts under $25 to take your worries away when it comes to gift giving AND winning the Hipster vibe at the party:
