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

Pebble Smartwatch (US$150)

It’s the watch that simply everyone is talking about, darling. And, unlike most fashionable gadgets, it is more affordable and more customisable than its megacorp copycats. If you can find one, it’s the grown-up’s Furby of 2013.

Sony Cyber-shot QX10 (£165)

Hipster-geek doesn’t want a normal camera, despite some of them being quite cool, and some of them being really good at taking pictures.

The QX10 will get you noticed, even if its for the fact that you’re taking ages to take a photo because you’re pairing, and you’re placing the lens somewhere clever and you’re showing everyone the live viewfinder on your phone. The QX10: little, unecessary, hip.

More after the break...

Yr T-shirt (from £60 (Liberty), from £28 (Topman))

Even if you were to go all the way to London’s Spitalfields Market and buy from a one-time stall-holder who had travelled from Tibet with his bag of five hand-made T-shirts, someone in your Shoreditch local would be wearing the same one. Yr Store is a new idea, letting you customise and print your own T-shirts from machines popping up in London retailers such as Liberty and Topman.

Mujjo Originals 11in MacBook Air sleeve (£45)

Make your hipster the envy of their local artisanal coffee house with this gorgeous MacBook Air sleeve, fashioned in felt and leather along appropriately minimalist lines. You can also pick up sleeves for the 13in MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, iPad and iPhone.
