Camellia McQueen - Best of Etsy 2015

In an effort to reward my husband who has become Chief Editor for this series, I figured shouldn't he have a say in a shop that should make the list?  All of the items featured today were picked out by a 100% manly man who loves to dress nice & can rock a bow tie......so maybe it will help with picking something out for your special someone.  

So today we feature Camellia McQueen - a UK based shop that handcrafts bow ties and pocket squares in very unique fabrics.  Look how classy these patterns are!

There are a few other color options with this gingham pattern that you can pick up in either a tie or pocket square.

All of her bow ties are pre-tied with an adjustable strap and you can get them in sizes from a 1 year old through adult sizes.  I see father-son combinations of this one.....just in time for a family Christmas picture!

I was surprised that my better half picked out this last pocket square - the pattern isn't something at all that I think he would be interested in.  But selfishly I love it.  It reminds me of fine china and takes me back to when we had afternoon tea at Kensington Palace during our trip to London a few years ago.  To me the perfect gift is one that carries with it reminders of sweet memories.  This fits that standard for me, so this certainly would make me a happy gift giver.
