The best Father’s Day tie just might be a bow tie. Or, a Bowie tie.

We might have found the best Father’s Day gift ever. And yes, it’s a tie. We’re crushing on the retro-cool ties made from hand-drawn images by Etsy artist Kayci Wheatley. Whether your dad’s into pin-on bow ties or tie-em-yourself neckties, you’re covered with illustrations of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, and Tupac, who probably never wore a bow tie himself.  If you have deep pockets, she’ll even design a 100% cotton fabric just for you, print it with one of her original designs, and then make it into a tie.

When is a cool tie more than cool tie? When it’s a cool Father’s Day ecard.

When I think of Father’s Day, two things immediately come to mind: ties and cards. Both of which can be awesome, and not trite–provided you know what to look for. Two years ago we discovered the gorgeous indie label ties from Pierrepont Hicks, which we loved so much, we included them in our 2010 Father’s Day Gift Guide. (Italian linen–hello!) So we’re thrilled to hear that they’ve partnered with our favorite mobile ecard purveyors at Red Stamp to create some really beautiful ecards based on their textile patterns, that you can customize and send right from their free app....
