The 20 Best Subscription Boxes for Men

The 20 Best Subscription Boxes for Men

There are never enough hours in a day to buy everything we need. That’s where subscription boxes for men come in. Whether you’re looking for semi-tailored clothes to be delivered to your doorstep, or a monthly collection of the best-grilled meats to cook, Dudefluencer’s list of the 20 best subscription boxes for men is here to help you out.

How did we select these top subscription boxes for men?

There are over 3,500 subscription box options available right now, and plenty of them offer less-than-stellar products. Here are the factors we considered when selecting the best subscription boxes for our list:

  • Functional: We discarded all subscription boxes that didn’t offer something that couldn’t be immediately useful to the recipient. We specifically looked for the best men’s subscription boxes in five categories: clothes, gear, beer, food, and grooming. 
  • Affordable: We capped pricing at $150 a month, though we prioritized subscriptions that cost under $60 per month. 
  • Reliable: We only looked at subscription boxes that had earned a positive reputation from online reviewers. 
  • Acceptable for men: None of the boxes we selected promote anything but positive masculinity. 

Each of these boxes presents something trendy, something delicious, or something handy (because you never know when you’ll need a survival kit).

Two designated months include footwear from New Republic, two designated months include athleisure wear from Grand AC, and the remaining eight months include contemporary wear from Five Four.

What’s excellent about Menlo Club is that they style for the season. That means your closet will contain multiple mix-and-match opportunities to look stylish and fresh, no matter the weather.

2. Stichfix for Men

Ever want your own personal stylist? Then you should check out Stitch Fix for Men. For just $20, you can get a personal stylist to select a collection of clothing items sent directly to your door. From there, you simply just buy what you like and return what you don’t. It’s that simple.

Based on your personal style quiz, your stylist will have all of the information to send you the right clothes for your fit and personality. And the best part, when you’re done, you can then shop online with a personally curated selection of clothing items (also chosen by your stylist).

Who is it for?

Men who like to dress well but have no idea how.

Customizable?

Yes, sort of. Your stylist sends over clothes and you choose what you like and what to return.

Cost: $20 for the stylist, and whatever the cost of your clothes may be.

Dudefluencer: The Gentleman's Box Preview

4. Watch Gang

Dudefluencer: A year of Watch Gang watches

The most expensive monthly option on our clothing list, Watch Gang, is for folks who love a good watch. 

Watch Gang is easy to use: choose your style of watch (elegant, expressive), and your plan, and Watch Gang will send a brand new watch to your mailbox once a month. With a wide variety of watch options available, each member’s growing collection of watches is curated to fit their style preferences and needs.

As a watch fan myself, there’s nothing better than choosing the right watch from a collection to match your outfit. And while watches are traditionally pretty expensive, it’s nice to have an affordable option to build a collection of your own.

Who is it for?

For men who believe watches accentuate any outfit.

Customizable?

Sort of. Choose which types of watches you like, and Watch Gang will curate your order based on your preferences.

Best Gear Subscription Boxes for Men

Dudefluencer: Bespoke Post Box

The Bespoke Post Box is an all-in-one men’s gear super box. After signing up, you’ll receive an email on the first of the month that includes all of the details of what’s inside your box. For the next five days, you can swap out items, customize styles and colors, and even choose to skip that month’s box. 

Then: boom. A ring of the doorbell and sitting on your welcome mat is a customized box of gear to enjoy and indulge.

Gear is a broad term, and for the Bespoke Post Box, that means you get the option of choosing boxes that include everything from classy booze containers to wireless earbuds. At Bespoke Post, the goal is to deliver a little something for every man.

Who is it for?

For men who love trendy gear.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: $45 a month

6. BattlBox

Dudefluencer: BattlBox

BattlBox is a subscription box dedicated to outdoorsman as each delivery includes a wide variety of camping, survival, and other outdoor gear. 

Depending on your subscription package, you could end up with outdoor manuals (survival guides, plant manuals) and small survival tools at the $29 a month box, to sleeping bags and tents from top name brands in the $149 a month package. BattleBox works best for serious outdoorsman as a lot of the gear is designed for folks camping rather than glamping.

Something cool about BattlBox is that their website details what’s been released in previous boxes, so you have an opportunity to check out directly which subscription package is right for you.

Who is it for?

For men who love the intensity of the outdoors.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: Prices range from $29 a month to $149 a month

7. Cairn

Dudefluencer: Cairn Box

For those who love the outdoors but are a little less intense about it, Cairn’s subscription box is a perfect choice. 

Each monthly box includes a wide variety of outdoor apparel, gear, food and snacks, skincare products, and emergency aids. What’s nice about Cairn is that the choices for your box are curated based on your style.

If you want a more elegant box, Cairn also offers the Obsidian Collection, a quarterly subscription that offers high-end products such as shoes, camelbacks, and jackets. If customization is what you want, then Cairn is the way to go.

Who is it for?

For men who love to relax outdoors.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: $29.95 a month ($169.95 for six months, $329.40 for the year, and the Obsidian Collection for $249 quarterly)

8. Breo Box

Dudefluencer: Breo Box

Every three months, Breo Box handpicks a selection of quality items to be delivered straight to your house. Part of the reason for the higher cost and quarterly delivery frequency is because of the quality of the items being sent out. 

For example, past boxes include Click and Grow Smart Gardens, Ekho Sports and Action Waterproof cameras, and a defrosting board. If you subscribe, you can expect to receive 5-8 items revolving around everyday essentials like fitness, health, and technology, depending on the season. Imagine Breo Box as a quarterly Sharper Image Subscription box: the trendiest gadgets from around the country curated and delivered quarterly. 

Who is it for?

For men who love The Sharper Image.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: $159 every three months (pre-paid $579 for a year)

Best Beer Subscription Boxes for Men

9. The Original Craft Beer Club

Dudefluencer: Original Craft Beer Club

The Original Craft Beer Club does exactly as the name implies: they ship out a collection of the best craft beers from around the country once a month. What’s great about this box is that it allows you to sample a variety of beers (curated by the folks at Craft Beer Club) to allow you to taste the best America’s microbreweries have to offer. One downside to this is that you have no option to customize what kinds of beers you like, or from what location, which means you may end up with a $42 12 pack of duds. Instead, expect a collection of brews with distinct flavors from unique locations that are guaranteed to make your friends jealous.

Who is it for?

For men who love the latest craft beers and microbreweries.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: $42 a month for 12 beers (additional shipments and number of beers available for additional cost)

10. Saloon Box

Inside each box are the recipes and ingredients for two cocktails (previous boxes included the components for Kentucky Mules and Cherry Bombs), a small batch of syrups and garnishes, and small bottles of top-shelf spirits. Each box is seasonally designed, so you can enjoy those light, breezy summer cocktails shipped straight to your door in August and hearty winter drinks in January.

Saloon Box does not offer any customization options for your subscription boxes. Instead, Saloon Box chooses the recipe, the alcohol, and the bitters so you don’t have to spend time searching online, scouring liquor stores, and making shoddy mixed drinks. Saloon Box has got you covered.

Who is it for?

For men who are at-home bartenders or looking to class up their drink palette.

Customizable?

No.

Cost: $58.99 a month (pre-paid $158.99 for three months, $305.99 for six months, and $587.99 for a year)

With a variety of distilleries at their disposal, Taster’s Club allows you to choose from whiskey, scotch, bourbon, tequila, gin, rum, vodka, and wine for your subscription. It’s crucial to the company that customers are surprised by which brand liquor is delivered, so Taster’s Club doesn’t post current shipments on their website.

Who is it for?

For men who know what kind of alcohol they want and are looking for something a little stronger than beer.

Customizable?

Sort of. Choose what kind of liquor you want, and Taster’s Club will send you a new bottle every month.
