What To Buy A Hipster Sister
Once again, I enlisted the help of my ‘I’m-not-a-hipster’ hipster sister to find the coolest gifts for any sis who is so hip it hurts! As well as those of us, like me, who aren’t cool but like to be surrounded by cool shiz. My friends, don’t fret, here is what to buy a hipster sister!
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Parties Gift Set
Let’s start with a bang, shall we!? Charlotte Tilbury really know how to make us ladies happy and this Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Parties Gift Set is the ultimate gift! It’s perfect for the holidays and it’s crammed full of 12 amazing items like the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick, Pocket Pout, Mascara, Eye Make-up Remover, Wonderglow, Lip Lustre, Clay Mask, Magic Cream and so much more! It’s literally the most incredible set and filled with so much magical Charlotte Tilbury items!
Spectrum Brushes have been allllll over my Instagram lately because they are my latest beauty crush. I mean, just look at these make up brushes, they are pure perfection and insanely cool! If your budget is limited, try Fresh Face Set and if you have the cash to splash, the Bombshell Set is epic, it even comes in a seashell-shaped case… NOT EVEN KIDDING!
Etsy Pin Badges
I wasn’t sure if the pin badge trend is dying out, but apparently not, the cool kids are still loving them! Just make sure they are make by cool indie designers and not the high street versions from Zara / Topshop / etc. These pins are by Toby I Like Cats at Etsy and they look super super cool on a denim jacket! PS. Check out this blog post to see how Etsy can help you solve your christmas gifting issues AND you could win a gift card!
The Coveteur Book
There are so many reason The Coveteur book makes a great gift for any hipster! There is so much to love about this book, the enviable fashion, the interviews with super-cool celebrities and designers, the beautiful homes and the cool images. It’s also a beautiful coffee table book which can be flicked through for inspiration and enjoyed during quiet moments.
Becca Cosmetics Glow On The Go Set
Highlight is hot right now, it gives you killer cheekbones without heavy contouring. There are a lot of highlighters out there, but my personal favourite and the most lusted-over one is by Becca Cosmetics. This Glow On The Go set is amazing as it contains two travel sized products; Shimmering Skin Perfector and Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. Perfect for getting that effortless, ‘I woke up like this’ natural glow.
Sudio Sweden Headphones
Every hipster loves a good pair of headphones so they can listen to French electro on the 55 bus, or Radio 2 whilst they sit in a coffee shop working on their MacBook. There are a lot of great headphones out there, but personally, I’m loving these Sudio Sweden Headphones which are bright white with interchangeable marble plates. They also connect to your iPhone via Bluetooth so they are future-proof ready for he release of the iPhone7!
How cool are these Prada sunglasses? I mean if these don’t scream ‘I’m so hip’ what do? Obvs no hipster worth their salt admits to being a hipster, but these sunglasses are amazing and insanely cool, which is why they are totally perfect for a cool sister this Christmas! And no, sunnies aren’t just for summer, if you are cool, you wear them all year around!
Staying in is the new going out and everyone loves a Netflix and Chill night. For those nights a few essential items are needed, soft pyjamas, a herbal infusion and a selection of scented candles. There are a lot of beautiful candles out there, but the coolest brand has to be Diptyque. Choose between the classic Baies, Figuier or their new limited edition Christmas collection which includes this Le Roi Sapin Fragrance.
Karl Lagerfeld Handbag
Let’s talk about how cool this Karl Lagerfeld Handbag is, shall we?! It’s black leather and covered in silver studs and pearls… it’s like it’s raining rock studs! Brilliant! Oh and it’s from Very Exclusive, so if your bank account needs a little ‘breathing space’ then you can always split the cost into three staggered payments. Brilliant!
Miu Miu Eau de Parfum
I wracked my brains trying to figure out which fragrance I should recommend for a hipster
sister, but eventually I realised you just can’t beat Miu Miu Eau de Parfum. It has a classic contemporary feel with Jasmine, rose and earthy tones. It also comes in one of the coolest and most beautiful perfume bottles ever made. Beautiful and cool, all in one!
Rodial Dragon’s Blood Collection Gift Set
Radial skin care is the current hipster brand of choice, Kylie Jenner is a huge fan and so am I! Their Dragons Blood Collection isn’t the cheapest, but with this set you save 30% off the normal shelf price, so it’s a great time to invest. This collection plumps, nourishes, hydrates, contours, refreshes… it does it all! I promise, this set will last your sister well into 2017!
Olivia Burton Watch
Finally, my sister is constantly watch shopping, scoping out the perfect time piece which is cool, functional, comfortable and well, timeless. It’s harder to find than you think. MK is too obvious, Kate Spade is too cute, Rolex is too expensive and so on…. Which is where Olivia Burton watches are so good, they have a classic face, great price tag and a slightly nostalgic twist. If you are looking for a new watch, Olivia Burton is the way to go, their designs are stunning and the quality is beautiful!
