Gift Subscription Box Ideas for Men

Monthly Gift Box Subscription Ideas for MenOver the years, the number of monthly subscription boxes has skyrocketed, and it seems there is a new one popping up every week. From ipsy to Love with Food, there are plenty of boxes centered on food, health, and beauty. Women can choose from an array of boxes filled with fashion, cosmetics, intimates and even bridal wear. Babies, kids and pets have their own options…so what about the men? Below, you will find a few gift subscription box ideas that aim to cater to the male population:

Bespoke Post

Noted for their high-end subscription boxes, Bespoke Post seems to follow a quality over quantity model. Therefore, instead of receiving a gaggle of sample products or small trinkets, gift recipients are treated to more substantial items in the lifestyle department. All items are curated to fit a specific limited-edition theme, such as the ‘Cheers‘ box shown below, which would make an ideal gesture for a beer lover. The boxes are also made to introduce subscribers to up-and-coming brands.Bespoke Post's Cheer Monthly Box Theme

The cost to join the ‘clubis $45 a month, where you’ll initially select a box to start off with. For each new month, you (or the gift recipient) will pick a new box after previewing a selection of available themed collections OR you/they could skip anytime. Those in the club also enjoy free shipping and hassle-free exchanges.

Birchbox Man

Birchbox Man is a monthly subscription box that blends grooming product samples with a hodge-podge of lifestyle items that may include socks, belts, wallets, TSA-approved cocktail kits, and/or tech gear. Each box comes with a card which gives details on every enclosed item, as well as estimated prices. You also get a choice of one sample product to add to the box.

Birchbox for MenThose who currently subscribe or have subscribed in the past seem to describe the contents of the box as something geared towards:

  • urban/hip/professional young men
  • those who dress more professionally
  • for men who take their grooming seriously
  • a nice introductory for men looking to expand their grooming options

The cost of a monthly box is $20, with discounted prices if you spring for an annual subscription – breaking it further down to $16.25 per month. Birchbox gift subscriptions for men are only available in 3-, 6-, and 12-month increments, and deliver a collection of 3-4 personalized grooming samples, and one stylish accessory or gadget. A 3-month gift subscription costs $60; 6-month is $110; and a 12-month subscription is like getting 2 months free for the price of $195.

If your fella likes something in particular from one of the Birchbox Man subscriptions, the company does sell Value Kits centered on various brands, such as Art of Shaving travel kits.

Carnivore Club

If you’re shopping for a meat and potatoes type of guy, or one who is a food connoisseur, Carnivore Club is a monthly subscription box filled with quality, handcrafted artisan cured meats. Each box is packed with 4-6 meats geared towards putting a smile on a foodie’s face. A box could contain salami, artisanal jerky and/or prosciutto, including international selections such as Spanish Chorizo, French Charcuterie, Italian Salumi, and South African Biltong.

Mantry

Described as delivering “the modern man’s pantry,” Mantry is just what their name suggests – a subscription box service centered on primarily satisfying the palates of male foodies. One of the initial things that recipients of a Mantry subscription often notice is the signature wooden crate used to package and ship their selection of gourmet food items. Each crate is filled with artisan products, accompanied by a fold out card that provides details on the origin of food, and who made it.
