Gifts for the Modern Gentleman

These days, many doubt their existence. They are the Prince Williams, the Chuck Basses, the Edward Cullens, the Ryan Goslings of the world. He not only holds the door open; he always carries a handkerchief. He sleeps in silk pajamas. He knows how to tie his own bow tie and can list off more fashion designers than you, yet he exudes masculinity. He's a modern gentleman. And if you have one on your shopping list this year, I can guarantee you one thing-- he most definitely doesn't want a Target gift card. Whether he's your husband, your brother-in-law, or your best friend, here are some gifts he'll be delighted to find under the tree! (And you can count on receiving a thank-you note!)
