GQ Quarterly Subscription Box Review #GQQ02
The GQ Quarterly subscription is a seasonal subscription box for men from the editors of GQ. The first box was all about scents, and this box is about holiday entertaining!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: GQ for Quarterly
The Cost: $100 a box (ships 4 times a year)
The Products: Style, Lifestyle and grooming products selected by GQ Editors
Ships to: Free to the US. (Canada +$30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected.
Brooklyn Slate Cheese Board – Value $29
Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds – Value $11
These are both duplicate items for me, but they both will make excellent hostess gifts. The ice molds are great for anyone who takes drinking something “on the rocks” seriously – the sphere shape makes them melt down slowly so it doesn’t interfere with the flavor of your scotch, whiskey, etc.
LA OrganicSuave Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Value $25
Knork Stainless Steel Kitchen Knife – Value $30?
Olive oil is one item I am always happy to see in subscription boxes. I can’t wait to use this. (And it being organic is a nice bonus!) Let me know if you like getting olive oil in subscription boxes (just a little Quarterly curator research!)
I received a Knork pairing knife from the EAT01 Quarterly box, and it’s a high-quality piece, so I’m happy to have another one!
Red Bee Honey Chunk Honey – Value $16
Hella Bitter – Value $9
This honey actually has a piece of the honey comb included! They recommend drizzling it over greek yogurt or crusty bread. I’m guessing it would work well with making cocktails too!
Areaware Table Tiles – Value $15
Coasters aren’t usually an exciting item for me, but I love that these are both functional and fun to play with!
Verdict: This box cost $100 and has a value of approximately $135. I think the curation of this box is great – all quality items I would feel wonderful about gifting or keeping. However, I was expecting the value to be a little higher given the price point.
At the same time, I may not be in their target demographic. I’m guessing most subscribers of this box are most interested in items selected by GQ editors, with total value being the second priority?
I’m also happy to see another quality lifestyle subscription box for men (in addition to Bespoke Post of course). What do you think of GQQ02?
