Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Hipster

What? Not done with your holiday shopping? Yeah, neither are we. But we've been making lists -- and checking them twice -- and we've got some suggestions for the nice people on your list. Today, Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Hipster.

All right, we're going to preface this gift guide with a small pep talk. Don't be disheartened if the PBR-drinking, skinny-jean-wearing recipient of your gifts does not express outward emotions of joy and/or gratitude.

Rest assured that despite the eye-rolling, the theatrical sighs, and seeming indifference to all things mainstream, your gift this holiday season will be received with the muted applause and heartfelt one-worded response that speaks volumes among a soft spoken community of twenty-something trendsetters.

A gift card to Lux Coffeebar Lux is coffee shop meets bar meets bakery meets restaurant. Question: Why are there not more of these? Answer: Because then it would no longer be cool. Quality is inversely correlated to quantity in the dining world of hipster foodie.

Take note, Lux Coffeebar has just about everything you won't find at Starbucks: mid-century furniture, decorative type writers, antique dish-ware, fresh made eats, and oh yeah, good coffee. They also keep the late night hours conducive for anyone opposed to getting up early to work for 'The Man.'
