The Shoppist Gift List, Day Five: Forage Haberdashery Ties

Neckwear that doesn't suck.

Our discerning editors have culled the best-of-the-best gifts available in Philly. Each day until Christmas, we’ve reveal our 25 top gift picks to suit everyone on your list. Happy shopping!

I know, I know: Ties are such an obvious gift choice for guys, but Forage Haberdashery’s hand-crafted versions  are anything but blah. The Philly-based company has a cult following for its limited-edition neckwear, especially its just-released ‘black tie’ line. My pick: the unfussy—but still just-dressy-enough—black dot necktie, a dark chambray with white pinpricks. In other news, I have my gift-wrapping inspiration for this year.

The Details: Forage Haberdashery black dot necktil, $78 at

Give To: Your husband/boyfriend (and tell him to wear it on NYE).
