Birchbox Man May 2015 Sample Choice Options

Birchbox Man item selection for the May 2015 boxes has begun! If you are an Ace, or you shared your box page for April, you should receive an email from Birchbox Man today with a specific link to pick your item:

Taft Liner Socks: Natty no-show socks that resist bunching or slipping, in a range of classic patterns that you’ll (almost) regret keeping hidden. Comes with two pair (colors vary).

Mizu M4 Water Bottle: A handsome hydration vessel in smooth stainless steel, with a wide mouth for comfortable quenching and easy refilling.

Skinny Tie Madness Edward 40 Hands: A slender and stylish necktie, just two inches wide, featuring light brushed cotton and classic diagonal stripes.

Quirky Contort Power: A heroic, multi-use power adapter with both AC and USB ports, plus convenient built-in cable management.

And there is also a curated box option this month:

Featured Box

Baxter of California Featured Box: A toast to a beloved brand on its 50th anniversary, packed with fan-favorite products (Daily Face Wash, Super Close Shave Formula, After Shave Balm, Clarifying Clay Mask) and a special soy candle supporting the Surfrider Foundation.

  1. I’m reviewing my items and saw that my son’s items for May are listed and shipped. There are only 4 items. His boxes always had 5-6 items in the past. Any thoughts?

    • I forgot to add that one of the items he is receiving is the COTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40. I looked it up and the sensitive formula is recommended for rosacea. Do they really think a male 16 year old is going to use this?

  2. Just got word that my box shipped–is this my May box shipping already? Wow!

    • Yes. I remember in the past they come right before the month starts.

  3. I am so confused with this. I signed my husband up over the weekend for this box with the headphones promo. I got the email to pick his sample but he didn’t like any of the choice, so we didn’t choose anything. I got an shipping confirmation for his box today, I figured it was for this box but I guess not? Anyone else getting April’s this late? I hope he doesn’t get the pocket square I saw for April, he never wears a suit!

    • Yup, just signed up April 7 and the confirmation email said his first would ship April 17. But you don’t get to pick anything for that one, unfortunately.

  4. Quite upset!! Wanted the quirky and that was not even one of the choices they offer in my link!! Socks, tie or water bottle??!! Meh.. Nothing exciting

  5. Well, that stinks. I tweeted and haven’t gotten a link yet. 🙁 Hopefully there will still be something left when I get to choose.

  6. Does anyone know–I’d like to get the Baxter box but I don’t get BBman right now. If I sub now for next month, can I opt in to the Baxter box with some sort of code?

    • Call them tomorrow and ask, if it’s not sold out you will probably be able to. They sold out of the November choice I wanted when I joined and I was unable to pick but they have added so much more people are now able to pick all day so you might be okay!

  7. I receive the email earlier today and selected the Quirky Contort Power which is my son’s first choice.

    • Some day you and I have to meet PA Anna. Oversubscribed to most of the same boxes, appear to have son’s close to the same age and my son also chose the quirky power outlet.

      • You never know 🙂 We have the same great tastes.

  8. Got the plug!
    I really thought there was a sample choice for a phone cleaner… or was that last month?

    • No I think they switched that with the socks at the last minute which is fine with me because I totally prefer them! You are totally right though

      • Oh ok! I thought I was legit going insane!

    • Yeah I was bummed about that! The phone cleaner was my husband’s first choice… I got him the socks instead because I figured that if they don’t work for him they might for me – I got him this month’s box mostly for the headphones promo anyway.

  9. Got the socks! I’m hoping they are too small for my boyfriend so I can steal them!

  10. I do not have a link in my email…do they send them out in batches? That seems a bit unfair :/

    • They do send them out in batches, just like the women’s PYS… because the site would crash if everyone tried to log on at the same time. They randomly vary what time you get your email though..sometimes I get mine in the am, sometimes afternoon.

      But if you got an email today describing these, there should be a link at the bottom that says “choose now”.

      UNlike the women’s PYS – I have never had anything sell out….

      • Thanks! That makes sense. Goldentote could really take a cue from Birchbox on how to run a website!
