Gift Guide: For the Almost Hipster

I’m back with another gift guide! So I’ve been classified by family and friends as an almost hipster for a long time – it’s sort of a running joke. Where does this classification come from? I like to craft, re-create store bought foods from scratch (I once even made my own Cheez-itz, they were deliciously addicting). I dress somewhat trendily and more than a bit off beat, I also prefer to buy local and handmade products when I can, or from companies I know well.

On the flip side, I am a serious nerd and gadget collector – I code for a living, consult with small businesses on their marketing and design strategy, and can quickly get super into business strategy. Basically I don’t quite fit the hipster stereotype but I’m not far off. Perhaps another means to name this is – I am a conscious consumer. Or maybe just a Millennial.

So this gift guide is for your almost hipster friend. Enjoy!

Quick refresher – as with the Cocktail Lovers Gift Guide and my Curated Gifting Strategy these are a collection of gifts you can give, one coming in at about $50 the other at $100. These don’t include shipping, so if that needs to be included in your budget, swap in some of the smaller items.
