Hands on with a Birchbox Man Holiday Box

If you’re stumped as to what to buy for your favorite people this holiday season, a Birchbox Man Holiday Box might just be the solution to your problems. The company that helps people discover products they’ll love via their subscription service (and personalized shop) recently dropped their seasonal offerings, and this year, they’ve put together a guide to help you choose the perfect holiday box. Whether he’s The Entertainer, The Adventurer, The Traditionalist, or The Guy Who Has Everything, you’ll be able to find something that fits the gent you’re buying for. Birchbox sent us a holiday box to give us a better idea of what’s inside. See what they sent us below.

What’s inside a Birchbox Man Holiday Box

One of the cool things about a Birchbox subscription is that you never really know which products are going to be in the box you receive. The December Box includes a ton of options, and mine was filled with English Laundry Eau de Parfum, Proraso Shaving Cream, moisturizer, hair product, and a travel candle. As you can see from the photos, some of the items are travel size, and some of them, like the English Laundry, will last for a while. It’s a great way to try out products you might not be sure about (or might not want to spend full price on).

If you really dig a specific product, you can go back to the shop and pick up more, or in some cases, get a larger size version of a product. For someone like me, who tends to stick with the same few products for years and years, Birchbox helps me branch out a bit.

Buy from the Birchbox Store or Get a Subscription?

You can pick up any of the products in the Birchbox store individually, or start a subscription. Here’s their gift subscription pricing :

3 Month Subscription – $60
6 Month Subscription- $110
1 Year Subscription – $195

The box I have would have cost close to $150 to put together on your own, so if you’re interested in giving (or getting) goodies long-term, a subscription gives you the best bang for your buck.

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
