Christmas Gift Guide 2013: 12 gadgets and presents for tech hipsters

Boomf Instagram marshmallows (£12)

What could be more emblematic of the modern hipster than the sepia-tinged Instagram snap? Now you can make those photos tangible, and delicious, in the form of Boomf marshmallows.

Fire up the website, connect to Instagram, pick nine of your favourite photos and you’re away. For an added layer of precious, precious irony, make marshmallows out of Instagrammed food pictures.

Revo Monocle 24 SuperConnect Radio (£300)

Produced in association with hipster trendy types Monocle, this digital radio looks appropriately swanky – and it has technical smarts, too. aptX streaming means it pumps out CD-quality sound, and it’ll play nice with iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth connectivity.

Oh, and it has a button that’ll take you straight to the monocle 24 live stream. Instant credibility.

More after the break...

Teenage Engineering OP-1 (£680)

It’s Scandinavian and it looks like it belongs in a 1980s toyshop, which immediately counts in the OP-1's favour among the hipster fraternity. But look closer, and it reveals itself as a superpowered synth – with an arsenal of tricks including a synthesiser, sampler, drum machine, sequencer, multitrack recorder, FM radio and probably the kitchen sink, too.

We called it “the best thing to happen in music gadgetry for years,” and we weren’t kidding.

Ziiiro Titan Pocket Watch (£113)

Wristwatches are so mainstream. For the achingly hip, nothing less than a fob watch will do. This one, made by Hong Kong-based Ziiiro, combines the whimsy of a pocket watch with the incomprehensible digital displays that design aficionados love. You may not know what the time is, but you’ll look cool doing it.
