From food to socks, music to grooming; subscription boxes come in every variety you can imagine. We picked 5 favorites (yes, we’ve tried them all) that you’re sure to love.
1. Birchbox Man
Perhaps the best known monthly subscription box, Birchbox Man delivers a personalized collection of grooming and style products to your home or office each month. New users complete a grooming profile to ensure each box is perfectly curated. You’ll receive 3-4 grooming samples in each box, and if you like them, full sizes are available for purchase on the Birchbox website. Shipping is free and you can give a gift subscription too. Perfect for a new grad headed off to college.
A favorite of certain Chubstr editor (aka me) Graze is a delicious snack surprise delivered to your desk on a weekly (or bi-weekly) basis. Tell Graze what you like and don’t like, and they take care of the rest. Best of all snacks are non GMO, contain no artificial colors or flavors, and are high fructose corn syrup free.
Formally Merchbox, IRL:Box helps you discover new artists, musicians, and startups from around the web. They describe it as “your Tumblr dashboard sending you mail.” For just $12 per month,approximately $30 of retail valued items will ship to your door.
For non-bearded guys, Harry’s provides a monthly shaving subscription service. The good news is, even if you shave infrequently, they’ve got you covered. You tell them how often you shave, choose from blades, shave gels, and after shaves, then Harry’s ships the items to your home or office. Starting at just $3 per month, it’s way cheaper than heading to the store each month.
5. Try the World
Boasting a “gourmet box from a new country every 2 months”, Try the World selects a celebrated chef from a certain country, has them curate an “artisanal experience”, and delivers an adventurous box to your door step. Along with food, each box contains a booklet with info on local customs, a playlist to enjoy while you’re eating, and a guide to the food.
