MAY 17, 2018 UPDATE: We are in the process of updating this list to remove old subscription boxes and add new ones. In the meantime, please pardon our dust!
If I had a nickel for every new subscription box for men I’ve seen lately, I’d be rich.
A few years ago, monthly subscription services were a novelty.
Maybe you’d get a box as a gift and not think much of it…
But with all the unique men’s subscription boxes out there now, you could almost automate your entire life:
- Grooming subscriptions
- Clothing subscriptions
- Monthly food deliveries
- Wine club shipments
…You name it, there’s a monthly box for it.
And the sad (or happy) truth is:
When you can get essentials like underwear and beef jerky delivered to your house every month for not much extra…why would you EVER go to the store again?
Below are 50 of the best men’s subscription boxes, broken down by category:
