Dad’s everywhere are crossing their fingers, you put down the tie, and get a little more creative in the gift department this Father’s Day. He’s also good on socks, underwear, golf tees, and mugs that say “World’s Greatest Dad.” And, sure the handwritten notes promising free hugs, are cute, but doesn’t he get those anyway? I think I found the solution for the Dads that are difficult to shop for, or the Moms that don’t want to take the kids to the mall in a quest for the perfect gift. Here’s a roundup of the 10 best men’s subscription boxes for Father’s Day. (in no particular order)
Bespoke Post $45 per month
Give the guy in your life a “box of awesome” from Bespoke post. Bespoke features a new box every month filled with different products around a theme. A fun and affordable gift that gives your significant other a fun way to discover new products.
How it Works: Bespoke sends you an email on the first of each month with a description of your selection. Then you decide whether you want to keep it, swap it, or skip that month. Every box has a retail value of $70 and there’s free shipping and returns.
Is Dad the kind of guy that loves food? When he makes a sandwich or fires up the grill, real chefs shiver in their boots….then give him a Mantry box subscription! Mantry is a food of the month club, that features Artisan foods from all over the U.S. shipped to you in a handmade crate! Alright, so my husband is no gourmet chef, but I kind of want to gift him this box anyway, LOVE this idea!
How It Works: You can buy one crate for $75 +$10 shipping, a 3 month subscription for $225 or 6 months for $450. Each crate contains six full size products and a booklet that gives you background on the products.
Sausage. Bacon. My husband loves meat. Loves it, like he’d be fine if that’s all he had to eat, but if I gave him bacon, sausage and steak for Father’s Day…well, that would be weird. But, if I bought him a subscription and meat was shipped to him, well I might be the “Best Wife Ever”, just saying.
How It Works: Purchase one month for $55 or a bi-monthly or quarterly subscription for $50 per month and receive an assortment of the finest handcrafted cured meat.
Is the Dad in your life the perfect catch? If he loves spending time fishing, chances are he’ll love the Mystery Tackle Box. Choose between a monthly subscription, 3 month, 6 month or 12 month plan. This gift is a fun and inexpensive way to try out new baits and lures.
How It Works:$15 a month with discounts for 3-6-12 month subscriptions. Every box contains a minimum of $15 worth of products with an average of 4-5 products in the month’s box.
He says birdies and bogeys and you say “speak English.” No worries, give him a BOGEYBOX and let the golf experts curate the perfect gift for a golfer. Dad will be super impressed!
How It Works: Choose a 1 month, 2, 3, or 6 month memberships. Boxes ship on the 15th of every other month. BOGEYBOX contains a mix of items like golf apparel, golf accessories, lifestyle products and food/beverage items.
Your guy likes to look sharp, smell good, and try new things. If that describes the Dad you’re shopping for, then give him a Birchbox Men subscription box. The box contains 3-4 deluxe grooming samples, and a full size lifestyle item (think socks, underwear, etc.)
How It Works: $20 per month or $195 for a year Birchbox subscriptions are so popular you have to request an invitation to join, and they say wait time is about two weeks.
Five Four Club
Best Men’s Subscription Boxes for the sharp dressed man, or the fashion challenged guy, that wants to be stylish, check out the Five Four Club. I think my brother would love a subscription to Five Four Club. He loves looking good, but hates to shop! With Five Four, they determine your style profile and then send you a box with clothes valued at twice what you pay, each month.
How It Works: $60 per month with free shipping and returns, they estimate the clothing in your box is worth $120
Curator and Mule
Another club for the stylish guy that likes to dress to impress, but loathes shopping. Curator and Mule says “we find it, you rock it.” Their most recent travel box contained waxed canvas pouch by Wovenn, leather Passport cover by UrbanCow, black wayfarer sunglasses, lip balm with SPF 15 from EvolutionMan, and product samples from EvolutionMan.
How it Works: $60/per season gets you a box of cool accessories
I love t-shirts that are conversation starters. If the Dad on your list likes t-shirts and/or dive bars, then give him a subscription to the Dive Bar t-shirt club.
How It Works: You can pay $22 monthly and receive the Dive Bar t-shirt of the month, or gift a 3 month/6 month/ 9 month/ 12 month membership. T-shirts come with a unique post card that tells you a little about the bar the shirt features.
Um, I might be in love with the Taster’s Club, and I haven’t even tried it. You already know I love bourbon, especially small batch bourbon. Whether you are a scotch fan or prefer bourbon, Taster’s Club has both covered. Bonus: with your 750 ml bottle you also get what they call “Whiskey 101 content”. Information about what you’re drinking, trends in the industry and more. Seriously, a gift that both Mom and Dad could enjoy together. (Note to hubby, I’d love this for Christmas or my birthday)
How It Works: Bourbon of the month is $83/month and Scotch is $94/month You receive a specially chosen 750 ml bottle of either bourbon or scotch each month, no cancellation fees.
