Me To You for Guys February 2018 Review

The only paperwork that comes in this box is a simple info sheet. No prices or invoices are included, so whoever you send this to will not know the price you paid or the value.

Spongelle Mens Super Buffer, 2.5 oz. – Retail Value $14

Did you know Spongelle made buffers for men? I didn’t, but now I wish I had a boyfriend so I could make him shower with this and then I could smell him after. This smells good. I know it is called “super buffer,” but I couldn’t tell the difference between this buffer and my Spongelle that is marketed for girls— still great exfoliation, though! I think Spongelles are a great inclusion for a box aimed at college students because if you’re in a dorm, there’s a big chance you have to live with the communal showers situation. This handy Spongelle is easy to put in your shower caddy without taking up a bunch of room. Another thing I liked about this product is that while the scent is strong when using it, it fades after your shower so you are only lightly scented. Even though this is technically the travel sized version, it still is good for at least 12 washes. 

A Spongelle body wash-infused buffer was also included in this month’s Girls box!

Deep River Ranch Honchos, 1.5 oz

Deep River Ranch Honchos, 1.5 oz. – Buy a 12 pack of 5-ounce bags for $37.59

Oh man, were these tasty. These taste a lot like cool ranch Doritos, and I promptly ate the whole bag once I opened it to take pictures of the chips. Plus, they’re made with organic ingredients with no GMO’s in a nut free facility. A+ snack.

Bedford and Broome Keap Pocket Square

Bedford and Broome Keap Pocket Square – Retail Value $18.00

This 100% cotton pocket square measures 12 by 12 inches and is patterned in a white and light blue gingham pattern with navy trim. Since I do not wear suits, I do not have a need for pocket squares. Luckily, I work in a law office, so after I got this box I brought the pocket square to work with me and found one of my favorite guy lawyers. I think if you have a law degree and you are a guy, you are mandated to have a suit jacket somewhere in your office which worked perfectly for my purposes.

On its own, the blue gingham pattern isn’t that impressive. However, when it is paired with a navy suit it looks really sharp (I believe the actual word I used was dapper). Both Taylor and I preferred the puff fold, and Taylor was excited that he got to keep the pocket square in exchange for helping me out. I think this was a great inclusion for a box aimed at college-going guys. There is always at least one fancy occasion a year on campus most people will go too-whether it’s dressing up for a presentation, a job interview, or a greek life formal.

Love Is Project Original Bracelet

Love Is Project Original Bracelet – Retail Value $32.00

The Love Is Project is a collaborative that combines storytelling with empowering people in impoverished nations. The Love Is Project employs artisans across the world to make these bracelets, which provides economic empowerment to the artisan and schooling (from elementary to university) for their families. The bracelet itself is a conversation starter, and the founder has traveled across the world asking people “what is love?”

I think this is a perfect inclusion for a February Box— instead of focusing on some of the superficial aspects of Valentine’s day, this bracelet and the meaning behind it can appeal to a broad range of people. I got two of these bracelets, as it came in both the Girls and Guys boxes (check out the Girl’s review here), and I gave one to my best friend, who is one of the most loving, kind, and thoughtful persons on this planet. I think she is the perfect embodiment of what love is, and I am glad that I am able to help spread the message of the Love Is Project. While not all guys wear bracelets, I think this style is gender neutral so it could fit the style of a lot of guys. I highly encourage you to click here to learn more about this project.

Lolli and Pops Dark Chocolate Bar, 3.0 oz

Lolli and Pops Dark Chocolate Bar, 3.0 oz – Buy a set of 5 for $30.00

Ooh, Lolli and Pops! That’s a shop I only go to when I am feeling *really* fancy, because the gourmet treats I enjoy from there really does not work with my weekly budget. This is another item that came in both the guys and girls boxes, and I think including a chocolate bar from this brand, compared to a chocolate bar you can buy easily at a store or gas station, really elevates this box. The chocolate itself is that perfect mix of sweet and savory that you get from a good dark chocolate. Plus, I learned from Ragan that one ounce of dark chocolate contains about 19% of your daily iron intake. That means this chocolate bar is practically healthy, right? (wink emoji) I only wish that instead of plain dark chocolate, this chocolate bar was one of the ~fancier~ flavors like red velvet or birthday cake. That is my personal preference, and going with regular dark chocolate is probably going to appeal to more people, anyway.

This item was also included in this month’s Girls box!

Verdict: I am digging the Me To You subscription! I thought the Guy’s box was filled with tasty snacks and high-quality items that perfectly appeals to their target market. I also think this would be a great subscription for any guy, even if they are no longer in college. Most of the products are gender neutral, so if you have a girl in college who isn’t into things that are stereotypically feminine, I think this box would be a good fit for them too. Me To You focuses on quality over quantity, but I still feel like you receive a good mix of items for the $36.99 + $4.00 price.

  1. I have sent boxes for graduation, to friends after surgery as a pick me up gift instead of flowers, to campers and the reactions and thank you notes have been so positive and genuine. Who doesn’t love a gift and in very cleaver packaging and I did not have to hunt around stores, wrap and mail a thing.
    Great gifts and it is always the thought that counts plus the name on the box says it all! Love these boxes!!

  2. My son received all 8 months from Me To You Box his Senior year in college. Loved it so much that I bought him all 8 months this year as he is working and living on his own in NYC. It’s the quality of the brands that draws me to this company. I simply wish I had found it sooner.

  3. I agree with you all so much. I think most guys in college are wouldn’t find this box exciting at all. So many offices are business casual now are pocket squares even still a thing??

    • And I completely agree with most on here – that so-called pocket square looks like an $18 picnic napkin. Even if I thought there was a chance that my 18-year-old would know what a pocket square was, he wouldn’t want a baby blue gingham check one!

      The hand beaded LOVE bracelet is pretty – for a 12-year-old girl. My kid would wonder how it got in a box intended for him. A scented scrubby? Same thing.

      So, for $41, the most useful thing in the box would be the chocolate bar which would last under 2 minutes. Yup, all that and a bag of chips!

      I think I’ll stick with paying $24 more and continuing with Trendy Butler which sends a full outfit once a month (I stop and start mine so my son gets a new outfit every 2-3 months). For the holidays, he got a great outfit (do boys call them outfits? LOL!) which he considers his “dressed up casual” and it looks great on him, has held up to numerous washes/wears.

      (I have zero affiliation with Trendy Butler but took advantage of their Black Friday deal and liked both shipments he’s gotten to date)

  4. My 18 yr old in college would like the pocket square except he wouldn’t be able to use it without a matching tie. As much as I like them, I just don’t see him taking a spongelle to his shower. I can’t see him (or his friends!)being excited about getting this box.

  5. This misses on so many levels. First of all it’s too expensive. I can go to Walmart and get way more for that amount. Second, what guy wants this stuff? I have boys and they would have said WTH? A pocket square for a young man? Dark chocolate? Red love bracelet? No, just no.

    • I was just thinking exactly that! I I sent this to any of my boys they would be like WTF mom?!
