POV: You’re searching for a lifestyle subscription that’s friendly to outdoor adventurers, but also offers other products that pretty much anyone can enjoy. We broke down two of the more popular boxes out there, Bespoke Post and Cairn and figured out which one is the best. And it wasn't even close. Continue reading to see who won.

If you want to explore more than just the outdoors … Bespoke Post

Bespoke Post and Cairn both offer products that are intended to be used in the outdoors. Whether you’re camping, spending the day out on the lake, or having a backyard fire pit party, there’s something in each subscription box that’s guaranteed to work for your preferred activity.

However, Bespoke Post is the best choice if you’re in search of a box that’s a crowd-pleaser. It'll entertain the bookworms and homebodies in your life as it offers products that can be enjoyed in indoor settings as well. Recent offerings include its Dough Box (cookie-making box) and Sabor Box (tortilla-making box).

Personally, I love having some variety in my subscription boxes which gives Bespoke Post the edge over Cairn in this aspect. While I always jump at the chance to stock up outdoor apparel and supplies, I equally enjoy being able to try out new things with loved ones within the comfort of my home.

If you're searching for a more affordable monthly subscription … Cairn

No one wants to break the bank, especially when it comes to monthly subscriptions. Luckily, both Bespoke Post and Cairn offer relatively affordable options for a lifestyle and outdoor subscription.

However, Cairn’s monthly collection is less expensive than Bespoke Post and only costs $34.99 per month compared to $49 per month.

So, if you’re in need of an outdoors and lifestyle subscription that’ll save you a bit of money each month, Cairn is the better option and offers a well-rounded subscription.

If you’re all about supporting small businesses … Bespoke Post

I try to support small businesses whenever I can and appreciate that both Bespoke Post and Cairn are centered on under-the-radar brands.

Bespoke Post, though, is the most dedicated to sourcing its boxes from up-and-coming businesses, and 90% of the products they carry come from small and mid-size businesses. Since their founding, they actually purchased over $140,909,340 of products from SMBs - talk about dedication!

Thus, I feel best about putting my money towards Bespoke Post and have no doubts whatsoever that they prioritize lesser-known names over more popular brands in each of their boxes.

If you love trying out new snacks … Cairn

Cairn always seems to include at least one snack (i.e. survival food) as a part of its monthly subscription box. It generally features snacks like Cliff Bars, Blondie Bites, Sun & Swell cookies, rice cakes, and beef jerky which is great because who hasn't forgotten to pack enough food for a trip at least once in their life?

If you want a lifestyle subscription that’s best tailored to your interests … Bespoke Post

Bespoke Post lets you set your preferences for products before your first order and gives you the ability to keep, swap, or skip your upcoming box once you’ve subscribed.

When filling out the initial online quiz, Bespoke Post will ask you whether or not you like products that fall under certain categories like barware & mixology, home decor & accessories, cigars & tobacco, and others.

Once you’ve finished the online quiz, Bespoke Post will match up your future boxes with your interests so that they’re the best fit for your lifestyle and preferences.

That’s one of the main reasons I love Bespoke Post - I never have to worry about receiving products I don’t like or can’t use as my subscription boxes are always aligned with one of my many interests. And if you do not like your assigned box, you can always swap to any of the other available boxes or skip if nothing suits your fancy.

Ultimate Winner: Bespoke Post

If you’re searching for a lifestyle and outdoor subscription that’s the best of both worlds when it comes to supporting your love for nature as well as other interests, then Bespoke Post is the winner. Not only does it offer themed boxes with products that almost anyone will enjoy, but it also offers the most customization and includes items that aren’t brand-name, but are certainly well-made and can’t be found almost anywhere else.
