Buying a gift for your friends or family can be difficult enough when they don't possess 'notions.'

What are notions, you ask? Well, it's essentially when a person has grandiose elements of extravagance; whether in terms of fashion, style, food & drink, décor or just in their everyday life.

They drink non-fat, no-foam, five-shot half-caffeine pumpkin spice latte in a special cup at a certain temperature and will refuse to do most activities due to footwear, except yogalates.

You'd never catch them drinking cans, especially not Tesco lager; they're most likely only drinking a craft beer that no one has heard of or a slimline tonic with lime cordial and a shot of vodka on the side.

Plebs such as us probably would take a taxi or public transport to a club, whereas someone with 'notions' might take a large limousine with white doves as their accessories.

According to the Urban Dictionary definition:

…You get the idea. It's luxurious hipster-ism.

We're so used to seeing the classic nativity scene in our mother's and granny's houses, so wait until you lay your eyes on this hipster version.

We admittedly laughed out loud when we saw this, just because it's so… millennial.

Joseph is perched down in the manger holding up an iPhone to take a seflie with Mary and their new baby, Jesus.

Mary is posing like the ultimate 2010 girlo, with a duck-face and peace sign, while holding a Starbucks cup.

But best of all is the three wise men, who are on Segways holding Amazon parcels.

Oh, and the sheep is wearing a Christmas jumper!

If you fancy having this little rocket of a nativity scene in your house, you can buy it here.


There is bound to be someone you know, or perhaps even you have had the experience of a parent taking things too far on social media.

For example: One poor girl attempted to post the ever popular, and oh-so subtly alluring ‘green tea, laptop, and fluffy socks'’ snap that bloggers just live for.

She then posted it on Facebook. There’s even some leg on display, but mostly those are covered.

Presumably, the woman wanted to show just how warm and cozy she was – which, coincidentally, is the message written on her mug.

Her dad saw his opportunity and he took it.

This was an unmissable opportunity for a contender for dad joke of the year.

He posted a picture of his own, in which he re-enacts his daughter's pose. Lying on his bed, he has his hairy legs on show, with his polka dot ankle socks pulled up just about as high as they'll go.

Completing his fetching look is a very dad-chic pair of checked shorts. Oh, and he's looking at pictures of dogs on his laptop, obvs.

The picture was posted on Reddit by user allthepeople alongside the caption: "My sister posted a picture to Facebook, my Dad responded."

It has since gone viral, with over 1 million views on it has also been shared on Reddit

One viewer said: "Just sitting here in my high socks, Google searching puppy pictures. Typical Saturday night. Love, Dad."

"He didn't show nearly enough leg," wrote one person.

Another added: "Your dad has better socks in my opinion. Could you tell him that a random stranger likes his socks? They're pretty dope."

However, some were more concerned about the placement of the coffee cups:

"Can't stop worrying those mugs will spill on the keyboards."



It’s hard to imagine The Little Mermaid’s Ariel as anything other than the sweet, red-haired beauty she is.

However, when Sofia Coppola gets her hands on the Disney character, we might have a Hipster mermaid frolicking under the sea in an ‘ironic’ fashion instead.

The Indie director is set to bring a live-action version of The Little Mermaid to the big screen, and if her previous movies are any indication, we don’t think this will be anything like the 1989 Disney musical.

Considering Coppola’s super-hip approach to her films, which include Lost in Translation and most recently The Bling Ring, we might have a little mermaid who wishes she had legs, just so she can don a pair of skinny jeans.
