Wearing a tie every day can be boring, but not when you’re working with what we’ve got.. and what we’ve found. Our tie clips make a statement, and on the right tie they can elevate anyone from associate to CEO (no matter what the business card may say). Imagine how they would pair with our brand new menswear crush, Mill City Fineries, for example. Mill City Fineries has all of the Southern charm and class that a true gentleman needs, yet it hails from the midwest.

Put one of these brass beauties on a necktie made for today’s man and described as, “Not skinny. Not wide. Simply a great modern cut.” You don’t have to stop at neckties, though. (Well, maybe for the clip.) They also offer pocket squares, handmade bowties, and bespoke wedding accessories. (How could we maintain our coastal devotion without a shout out to the bowtie?) Click here to be brought right to their website. While you’re shopping for Father’s Day you can also check off the list of “What to Wear” for the man in your life during wedding season. We think that’s just perfect, don’t you?

You know how much we adore custom fabrics, so you’ll appreciate that the founders of Mill City Fineries take pride in traveling far and wide to find fabrics that will make a statement (a statement no one else will be making).

Dad won’t just be fashionable, he’ll be fashion forward. You can thank us after he opens his gift and delights in the package! Oh, and quick! It looks like you’re just in time to find they’ve created a Memorial Day Sale. (Click here for the sale) Let them know your friends at Emily McCarthy shoppe sent you!

Dear Father’s Day Gift Giver,

We come to you in a time where you may be wondering, “what on earth does my dad not already have?” Hold it right there! We know what Dad doesn’t have, so you can relax and breathe easy. Always leave it to us.

We did all of the leg work searching high and low for things that would make Dad say, “I haven’t seen this before!” and things that will make you say, “This is not a boring gift at all!” We even made it a bit easier so that you don’t have to do a ton of clicking around and we placed all our favorites in the “New Arrivals” category in our online shoppe! Click right here to be brought directly to everything your dad’s heart desires.

Care for a cocktail? Here’s a carry-on cocktail for all occasions! No flight required. This novelty will be appreciated and utilized without a doubt. Whether Dad prefers an early morning Bloody Mary, or an Old Fashioned night cap… there are 5 Carry On Cocktails to choose from!

BloodyMary ChampagneCocktail




If Dad is a dapper man, you may find that these brass dipped combs are a special (necessary) edition to his every day accoutrement. One for the side part, and one for the beard, respectively.

Keep him footloose and fancy free with these practical accessories. Especially if Dad is a traveler, a shoe bag is simple but makes a difference in a tight piece of luggage (we know he travels light). A shoe horn may not seem like the best gift ever, but when you read the sentiment it’ll be a symbolic keepsake that just happens to be practical.


Finally, we have to talk about these decanters one more time. Make Dad the highlight of the party and the most coveted bar tender in town while he can brandish his own emblem on a custom decanter new to the shoppe. Available in 4 different styles, whatever he picks as his poison will be beautifully displayed in a way that won’t clash with your home.

Ah, the end of may. Graduations have come and gone (for the most part) and now we focus on our favorite season of all: wedding season! Wedding gifts are no easy task. What can you get that will be unique, stand apart from everything else, and show off your penchant for perfect gifting?



As always, we have you on our mind and we have the answer to the gifting question: our cutting boards. They’re a perfect statement piece in the kitchen or dining room. Oh, yes, and they are fully functional and ready for long term use.




These elegant cutting boards are laser engraved and are made with premium quality maple wood to make a great work surface or serving tray. Each board comes with rubber feet for a secure grip and is sealed with butcher block conditioner to ensure long-lasting durability. There is also the option to add hand-forged iron handles that come in various finishes (see photo gallery in the online shoppe by clicking the shape you like: square // round // rectangle).





Available in four sizes, small (16×10), medium (18×12), large (20×14), and extra large (24×15). Handle finishes are rust and nickel, and the handles can be twisted or hammered.

Handle Samples 284

Choose your monogram style, we’ll take care of the rest. You’ll look like the hero of the wedding gift table! Here’s another special hint… pair the cutting board with a set of our cocktail napkins and really hit it out of the park!

Ahhh, the at-home bar. So often under-rated, we need to talk about it! We always try and help you think about special touches around your home and how they can honestly bring your entertaining and aesthetic to a new level. How about the at-home bar accessories? So easy to inject into any current set up, and packing a big punch of impact with guests.

Our new shapes and sizes of decanters are our newest obsession. Take your custom monogram or choose from a style we can make for you, and create your emblem. We also heard a rumor that Father’s Day is coming up soon and that this could be EXACTLY the gift that Dad needs, and Mom approves of. (Call us selfish, but it’s never a bad idea to give a gift that goes with the rest of the home decor!) Dad will feel even more official pouring up his favorite spirits with something uniquely him.

Aside from Dad, you know we’ve got options at our Gift Bar that will be great gifts for others… or, for yourself! (We believe in self-gifting here, in case you needed an excuse!)

Hopefully you caught our feature in Peachy the Magazine not long ago. If you didn’t, we’ll bring our guide to Savannah right to you, dear readers! In this series we’ll let you know Emily’s favorite places to eat, to stay, to play, and shop right here in Savannah, GA.


It’s no secret and no surprise that Savannah is a tourist destination all year round. In fact, it feels like a dream to call this vacation spot a home! Here are the favorite hot spots or hot ideas that you definitely need to be acquainted with.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 1.09.45 PM
– Picnic on Forsyth Park with the Savannah Picnic Company – What could be more fun than a pop-up picnic that you literally don’t have to lift a finger for? This company is the epitome of charm! I never even knew something like this existed, and now I can’t stop recommending it. (Find more info on their website by clicking here.)
– Pure Barre Savannah – Whether you’re a local or visiting, the best workout in all of Savannah is definitely Pure Barre! Located on Derenne and Abercorn this studio will work you from head to toe with the best instructors around. I’m warning you, you’ll be hooked right away. The best part is, it’s a low impact workout that absolutely anyone can do. Schedule your first class here!
– Savannah Slow Ride – We won’t dance around the subject (though dancing does complete any fete!), Savannah likes to party. Grab a group of friends and hop on an intimate 14 person bike and hit up all the best sites. You can take it from monument to monument, or bar to bar. Up to you… and it will be one of your favorite adventures SAV has to offer.

– Top Deck at the Cotton Sail Hotel – Unlike other rooftop venues in the city, this particular venue is going to give you a view of the river and the picturesque Talmadge Bridge that takes you to South Carolina. Sip cocktails on the sofas outside on the deck and wait for the sun to set – you’ll love the photo ops!
Where are your favorite spots to play around town? We’d love to know! Maybe we can add it to our guide. Everyone loves a local’s inside scoop.
