Subscription Boxes are a fun gift option that doles out the treats and surprises all year round! Today, I’ve found over 45 thoughtful and unique subscription boxes for men – and most offer a one-month subscription option, so you can choose to make it a one-time treat or opt for a year of presents!
Monthly Subscription Boxes for Men
Subscription Boxes are such a fun way to find new products and indulge your interests in a unique way.
The curators for these boxes do all of the searching for you so that you can open a monthly box of thoughtful items geared to your personal interests and preferences. Many also have you fill out a questionnaire (or e-mail them with your preferences) so that they can send items that are custom-tailored to you.
I divided this post into subscription box types. Below you will find:
- Book Subscription Boxes
- Travel Subscription Boxes
- Self-Care Subscription Boxes
- Hobby Subscription Boxes
- Fitness Subscription Boxes
- Fashion Subscription Boxes
- Culinary Subscription Boxes
- Alcohol Subscription Boxes
Book Subscription Boxes
I adore the concept behind Once Upon a Book Club. It’s a monthly subscription service that delivers a book plus 3-5 wrapped gifts tagged with specific page numbers. The idea is that you open the themed gift once you’ve read the corresponding page. You can contact the curator if you want to know the title beforehand, and the box also comes with a 5×7 quote print featuring a quote from the selected book, discussion questions and read-a-long dates for live discussion and gift opening with fellow readers.
