Bespoke Post Review – Hemingway Frontier Box
My boyfriend and I love Bespoke Post – it’s one of our favorite subscription box discoveries in 2013, and it’s also our new go-to-gift for friends! Every box we’ve received from Bespoke Post is full of top quality product – I definitely consider it an affordable luxury box.
My boyfriend declared this month’s Hemingway box the best box he’s ever received from a subscription box company! (FYI – Bespoke Post has changed the name of this box to Frontier due to copyright issues. It’s still the same box, and it’s still available!)

Each box comes with a brochure detailing the products selected, and giving a little more information around the theme:
What better to use as an inspiration than a writer, drinker, hunter, and all-around American icon? Now you can measure up to the Hemingway legend by putting this timeless gear to good use.
Machine Era Co. Whale Bottle Opener – Value $48
This bottle opener is much heavier than I thought it would be from the pictures. I love the whale engraving, and it’s definitely a well-made heavy-duty piece. We have more bottle openers than we could ever need, but we were happy to add this to the collection!
I love the history of this knife:
This isn’t just a knife — it’s a damn legend. Manufactured since 1890 in the small town of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, this pocket knife has become a profound icon of French design and utility. Need proof? Pablo Picasso used it to carve his sculptures, and plenty of legendary explorers never left home without one. And aside from being a MoMA-endorsed design masterpiece, it’s got a resilient oak handle and stainless steel blade for just about any use you can think of.
It also has a lock mechanism so you can lock it open or closed.
I love the vintage style packaging of this pen set!
It’s easy to use too!
Poppin Medium Soft Cover in Blue – Value $9
This was the one variable in the box – you could either get this notebook in blue or black.
Verdict: We paid $45 for this box and received over $100 worth of genuinely well-made products. Bespoke Post definitely is a lifestyle upgrade every month. We liked this box so much I just bought a second one to use as a gift! What do you think of the Hemingway / Frontier Bespoke Post box?
