Made in Germany, the Muehle Shaving kit consists of a chrome-plated badger-hair brush, safety razor, and stand. If the gent in your life insists on his Gillette's, consider a gift card to a barber shop to accompany the shaving kit and perhaps he'll learn a thing or two about how it was done in the good old days. Fellow Barber has locations in San Francisco and New York. Harry's Corner Shop recently opened in New York and features a Fort Standard–designed interior.

The time is nigh to start finding gifts for the gents in your life; heaven knows they can be murder to shop for. With that in mind, I've collected a few bits and bobs that will add a bit of understated style to any man's kit, be it a pair of gloves, a scarf, or something new to read. These objects range from decidedly trad to rather more contemporary; the modern man finds a balance between the two in his personal effects. Happy holidays!
Editor Aaron Britt: I'm a firm believer that good design should extend beyond merely one's living space to, if possible, one's very self. And so I set about curating a collection of the design-savvy gent's personal accoutrements. From toiletries to apparel, the well-turned-out chap, or anyone shopping for him, need look no further than this guide to the modern gentleman's gear.
Some might describe me as fanatical about coffee, but I call it a deep appreciation! The items I have chosen for Dwell's Holiday Gift Guide represent my favorite finds, a few practical, but all downright intriguing designs.
