The Best Subscription Boxes For Men Leave a comment

From craft beer to golf gear, there’s really no category of goods that you can’t get a monthly subscription for these days. Some men’s subscription boxes are a great way to save time and money on practical things you buy regularly, like razors, snacks and coffee, while others provide a fun way to expand your horizons or further explore some very specific interests. They also make for great gifts, whether you’re looking for a thoughtful birthday present or hoping to surprise someone who’s really into exotic carnivorous plants.

Whether you’re an aspiring sommelier, an ice fishing enthusiast or just a guy looking to grow a luscious beard, subscription boxes are a great opportunity to discover new items that are expertly curated by people who share your passions (often at a handy discount). Below are some of the best subscriptions boxes for men on the market right now, organized by category. 

The Best Men’s Subscription Boxes For Fashion & Apparel

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix is everywhere right now, and with good reason: It’s incredibly user-friendly. You pay a $20 styling fee upfront (which gets credited toward pieces you keep), and then pick how much you want to spend going forward. Then, select your style and size, and a curated box will be delivered to your place, filled with clothes (sleek suits, casual jeans, on-trend jackets) and shoes for you to try. Keep the items you want and send back the stuff you don’t in the included prepaid return envelope. Stitch Fix also offers free shipping, returns and exchanges for customers—it’s really that easy.

Nordstrom Trunk Club

If you’re a fan of Nordstrom and enjoy shopping online, you’ll love Nordstrom Trunk Club. The subscription box service makes the process of snagging stylish, upscale menswear easy. Just fill out a quiz about the type of clothes you like, and pay a $25 styling fee (it’ll be applied to any purchases you make down the road). From there, you can choose how often you want deliveries. Shipping is free, and you can return or exchange anything you’re not into for free.


Bombfell has a little bit of everything in the men’s casualwear department, including laidback shirts, suits for work and accessories to tie it all together. Kick things off by filling out a style quiz, and a stylist will put together a box for you with up to seven items inside. Like other services, you can set a budget for each item and even approve things before they’re sent your way. You can also choose how often you get a box—monthly or seasonally. You’ll pay a $20 styling fee for each box, but can use that money as a credit toward any purchases you make. You’ll also get a discount on the items you buy, and the more you buy, the bigger the markdown.

Frank and Oak

Frank and Oak focuses on delivering quality, eco-conscious clothing right to consumers. The company’s Style Plan is their monthly subscription service that sends seasonal pieces (eco-friendly tees, denim, outwear and accessories) based on your preferences. Like other services, you try things on and only pay for the stuff you keep, and in this case you get 30 days to decide. Signing up also entitles you to receive member prices up to 20% off the sticker price and free standard shipping sitewide at any time, in case you want to supplement your box with other styles.


Flip flops, swim trunks and beach T-shirts don’t last forever, and that’s where Beachly comes in. The company ships beach-inspired gear to you four times a year, with up to five coastal style-inspired items, including sunglasses, tees and hats. You’ll pay $99 per box, plus shipping, but you can get that price down to $85 per box if you pre-pay for the year. No matter how you pay, each box is valued at $180 or more, making it a pretty great deal.

The Best Men’s Subscription Boxes for Outdoor Gear


If you’re into camping you know that it requires some serious gear. Luckily, Cairn has got your back with some of the newest outdoor products out there. Each monthly box features expert-curated outdoor products like Smartwool socks, a Serac hammock and Eagle Creek compression cubes. And it’s a pretty good deal with up to $50 off the retail value of each box.

Bespoke Post

Bespoke Post offers up subscription boxes for practically every men’s hobby and category, including DIY alcohol distilling, paella-making, grooming and beach gear. Once you sign up for a membership, you can pick or choose your box each month.

Mystery Tackle Box

Mystery Tackle Box

With three different plans priced at $20, $30 and $40 per month, and free shipping, Mystery Tackle Box offers anglers of any expertise a steady supply of fishing lures and tackle at a discount of up to 40%. Customize your box based on your chosen catch, with options that include bass, inshore saltwater fish, panfish and trout, walleye or a versatile multi-species offering. And if you want to switch things up (e.g. try their seasonal ice fishing package), you can change your selection or pause/cancel your subscription at any time.

Swinger Box

If you’re a golfer, you might have realized that buying balls at the pro shop is not the most economical. Swinger Box’s Essentials package sends balls, tees and a fresh new glove to your door, eschewing toss-ins you might not use in favor of the necessities you need to work on your long game. Those looking for more than just basics can opt for the Gear package, which includes apparel and accessories. A brief survey helps ensure that the clothing fits your size, style and game, and both packages are free of shipping costs.


Many plant subscription boxes charge upwards of $60 monthly to ship plants you’ll eventually run out of time or properly-lit space for. Leaf’d offers a more practical and economical approach with timely, hardy herb and vegetable packages, billed and shipped—for free, if you pre-pay for the annual plan—at the beginning of each season. At an average price of $4.50 per plant, packages are tailored to your local climate and come with helpful tips and resources to grow your gardening game. Plus, through their partnership with World Vision, each annual Leaf’d subscription provides someone in need with a year of clean drinking water.


If you run often enough to consider a subscription box, you likely already own some solid apparel and gear that don’t need frequent replacement. On the other hand, every runner does need to regularly replenish their fuel supply. In addition to its core of essential bars, chews and healthy snacks, each StrideBox delivery also includes useful skincare and hygiene products as well as accessories, plus bonus content like recipes and workout suggestions.

The Best Men’s Subscription Boxes For Accessories

Watch Gang

If you’re one of those people who think you can never have too many watches, Watch Gang is here to make sure you get your regular fix. The process is pretty simple: Choose the style you prefer (like elegant, adventurous, expressive) and then Watch Gang will send a new watch to you each month. The whole concept is built on being surprised, but if you’re not into that, you can check out the company’s Wheel of Watches and Member Store to pick out a watch you’d like. A monthly subscription for watches valued at up to $150 is $50, but you can pay a little more per month if you want to snag more valuable models.

The Tie Bar

Tie Bar has just about any kind of tie you could want: skinny ties, regular ties, extra-long ties, bowties. The company offers up different tiers and prices depending on how many deliveries you want and the style you’re after. For a six month subscription, you’ll get three ties upfront, and three more ties six months later. For 12 different ties, you’ll get three new options every three months and pay $199 (extra long ties are a little more, at $259). The same options are available for bow ties, if that’s more your thing.

Gentleman’s Box

Gentleman’s Box curates around a different style each season, with past boxes including London, coastal, wanderer and formal themes. Each edition contains four to six different products, like premium leather goods, high-quality electronics (think bluetooth speaker) and luxury home essentials (a bottle opener or mugs), all with a combined value of at least $300. You’ll also receive a booklet with each box, explaining the style inspiration of your choices. Once you sign up, you can expect to receive a new box every three months.

New boxes are available every month, so there’s always something different to choose from.

Basic Man

Buying basics like tees, underwear, and socks isn’t exactly the most stimulating activity on the planet, but it needs to be done — especially since these goods wear out over time. That’s where Basic Man comes in. The subscription service ships their high quality cotton T-shirts, socks and boxer briefs to you on a monthly basis. You just select your size, choose from a $20 monthly payment or pre-paid plan and wait for your package to arrive.

The Best Men’s Subscription Boxes For Food & Beverages
