In my opinion, shopping for men is one of the biggest challenges of the holidays. Sure, getting a good pair of socks and cologne will do the trick – but why can’t we think of shopping for men like we do shopping for women? There are so many incredible options out there (and here) and the road block of “I don’t know what he wants” doesn’t have to get in the way anymore.
One incredible option for a gift is to gift your favorite dad, husband, brother, or any man with a monthly subscription box. No, they aren’t just for women. And yes, subscription box options for men are few but when you find a good one, you’ve struck gold.
A good box option is Bespoke Post. I have to admit that this is my favorite by far – I am currently a monthly subscriber for my boyfriend and we actually get giddy when the boxes show up. They come with full sized products and are themed and categorized by travel and bags, lifestyle, bar, kitchen, and clothing/accessories. When you become a subscriber, the boxes are $45 a month. Bespoke picks one for you based on an intricate survey taken during registration, but you can skip a month (and a payment) or switch to any box you’d like.
To give you more insight on the diversity and just sheer INCREDIBLE-ness of these products: the first box we received was called “Refresh” and included a nice shaving kit bag, full sized Paul Mitchell shampoo, Marvis toothpaste, Dr. Squatch hand made soap, Paul Mitchell hair gel, and Cremo all natural face wash. The box I’ve picked out this month is called “Paired”, and includes a partyclette (a cheese melter – you’ve seen them on Buzzfeed or Tasty videos), a pair of Vivendi white wine glasses, a wine caddy, and organic dark Mylk chocolate bar. You also have the options to “enhance” your box and add new things monthly. Along with the boxes, Bespoke Post offers a full shop of incredible items for men and women. Read more here.
