This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

2016-gift-ideas-for-men

If you’re looking for subscription box gift ideas for men – this list should have you covered! I put together my top recommendations based on subscription boxes my husband and our friends love. (A lot of these subscription boxes are great for women too!)


  1. Bespoke Post
    For the design-minded guy who loves small-batch products

    bespoke-post-prost-september-2016-004

    Bespoke Post “Prost” Oktoberfest themed box from September 2016. Not all boxes are food related – we think everyone can find a Bespoke Post edition that they are interested in!

    Why we recommend it: Bespoke Post is known for their well designed boxes that focus on high-quality products around a specific theme. They release a new set of themed boxes each month, and when you buy a gift, the recipient has the option to choose which box they want to receive… so you can ensure they’re getting something they want, but it’s more personal than just a gift card. Although intended for men and many boxes do include masculine accessories and personal care items or men’s apparel, some of the boxes are unisex and make great gifts for women, too — like those oriented around food or home products.

    What’s in the box: It’s always different, but expect “best in class,” artisanal, small-batch products around various themes. Bespoke Post announces their new boxes each month and you can preview exactly what’s inside before you commit; see their current offerings by clicking “Boxes” on their website.

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $45/month
    Frequency: Monthly (but you can easily skip any month if you’re not interested in the current themes)

    How to give as a gift: Click “Gift a Gift” and choose a 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscription.

  2. Robb Vices
    For the most interesting man in the world

    RobbVices-July-2016-Packaging2

    Robb Vices’ July shipment included everything you need to serve up some tropical-inspired drinks, complete with pineapple glasses!

    Why we recommend it: One of the few boxes where we see truly new and innovative concepts every month – an MSA reader favorite! “Robb Vices delivers a curated selection of exceptional goods that tell a story of authenticity and intrigue. Created by the publishers of Robb Report, each delivery includes products that represent the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship. In any given month you can expect unique foods to taste, spirits to fill your glass with, as well as tools and toys that empower the ultimate host and that will make the most discerning connoisseur smile.” 

    What’s in the box: Expect a mix of alcohol, food, and corresponding products like glassware, gadgets, and more. Each shipment is a cohesive collection of products that come together to create a unique experience that can be relished alone or enjoyed with a small group of friends, including an informational booklet with lots of background info on the brands and products.

    OK, What else should i know:
    21+ Only: Robb Vices almost always includes alcohol, so someone 21+ must be available to sign for each delivery.
    Price: $75/month
    Frequency: Monthly
    How to give as a gift: On their homepage, click “Give a Gift” and select a 1, 3, 6, or 12 month plan. These plans appear to recur, so you do need to cancel once your intended subscription length is complete.

  3. Gentleman’s Box
    For the polished, stylish man

    The October shipment of Gentleman’s Box included stylish essentials

    loot-crate-october-2016-0003

    The “Horror” themed October 2016 Loot Crate box.

    Why we recommend it: Loot Crate is one of our favorite geeky subscriptions. It’s great for anyone on your gift list that is into into video games, comic books, science fiction, and more, and it’s full of great exclusive items so you can be sure they won’t be getting something they already have at home.

    What’s in the box: Loot Crate ships 5-7 Items in each box along a common theme. Every box comes with an exclusive shirt to go with that month’s theme. The types of items greatly vary from a comic to vinyl figures to a Breaking Bad themed apron.

  5. Stitch Fix MenFor the fashion-forward guy who’d love a wardrobe refresh

    screen-shot-2016-10-31-at-3-16-11-pm

    Why we recommend it: If you are looking for a luxe gift, or the man on your list is in need of a new wardrobe, a gift certificate for Stitch Fix Men is the ultimate gift. We find that many guys (and gals for that matter!) appreciate personal styling services like Stitch Fix instead of spending hours at the mall when they need some new threads.What’s in the box: 5 pieces of clothing to try on, and keep or return. You sign up for a “Fix” by completing a style profile with your guy’s size and style preferences, and then your personal stylist picks out items for you and sends them your way. Send back anything you don’t like and just pay for what you keep

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $20 per shipment styling fee, which is applied towards any items you decide to keep. Get a 25% discount if you keep everything in your Fix!
    Frequency: Monthly (but you can easily skip any month if you’re not interested in the current themes)

    How to give as a gift: Instead of signing up for a Fix on their behalf, buy a gift card, which can be applied to the Styling Fee and any items they decide to keep. You can choose to ship the gift card, print it out, or e-mail it.

    We’ve only reviewed Stitch Fix for Women so far, but check out all of our Stitch Fix Reviews to learn more about how this subscription works!

    For the professional guy who needs to look his best every day

    birch-box-man-october-2016-0003

    Why we recommend it: Birchbox Man is a subscription box with a good mix of grooming and lifestyle products. Some of the lifestyle items can be a little formal (cuff links, ties, collar stays), so we recommend this box for anyone who has a professional clothing requirement for work!

    What’s in the box: Birchbox Man is a monthly grooming and lifestyle subscription box for men. Each month, you’ll receive 3-4 sample size items to try along with another lifestyle item that you can select. The selection process opens about a month before shipping and, typically, allows you to pick 1 of 3 selection items.

  7. Mantry
    For artisanal food and snacks curated around themes guys love

    mantry-october-2016-review

    Mantry’s October 2016 “Tailgate World Tour” themed box.

    Why we recommend it: There are tons of food subscription boxes out there, but Mantry is particularly easily giftable because of the cool, re-usable wooden crate that their first box will arrive in. The themes are typically more modern than other “food gift baskets”, and recipients should find at least a few products and recipes they’ve never tried before.

    What’s in the box: Artisan foods for the “modern man’s pantry” sent every other month. Expect 6 full-sized items all curated along a common theme, like “Pizza Party,” “Bourbon BBQ,” and “Tailgate World Tour” (as seen above).

    OK, What else should I know:
    Price: $49 every other month, with discounts for longer subscriptions
    Frequency: Every other month

    How to give as a gift: Head over to Mantry, click “Gifts” in the header, and select a 1, 3, or 6 box gift plan. (Boxes are shipped every other month, so 6 boxes is a full year subscription).

    peoples-choice-some-like-it-hot-jerky-box-2016-0003b

    For the hop-head or lager-loving guy in your lifecraft-beer-club-september-2016-allbeers

    Why we recommend it: A subscription to a “beer of the month club” is a classic, no-brainer gift for the beer guy in your life. We’ve been reviewing this subscription for awhile now and have been pleased to find they include a good mix of beers that we can’t always find locally!

    What’s in the box: The Craft Beer Club sends craft brews from around the country.

    halloween-candy-wine-pairings-october-2016-002
