Taco and I often argue who it’s more difficult to shop for at the holidays: me or him. I always say as long as it involves travel, yoga, or clothes, I’m super-happy. And Taco will either just buy the things he wants, or like things out of my price range. If you’re feeling stuck finding a gift for the man in your life, and want to give him something that lasts all year long, check out these subscription options that range from stocking-stuffers to monthly lifestyle surprises. This year, think outside the wine, beer, and grilling box for your man and check out the best subscription boxes for men.
Selecting the Best Subscription Boxes for Men
When it comes to which subscription option to choose, consider the following:
- What are your man’s interests?
- How long will he be interested in what’s included?
- How quickly will he get through the items included in the box?
There’s a subscription box out there for every interest, from cooking to wine. The difference between a subscription box and a “Beer of the Month Club” is that the boxes can contain a variety of items. Sometimes there’s a monthly theme, while others include greatest hits. Having a sense of you man’s interests is a great starting point – or maybe there’s a hobby he’s been wanting to pick up. This could be a great into into something new. If you’re deciding how long to subscribe for, consider how long you thing your honey will be interested with the items in the box. And also how quickly you may go through the content. If you’re going to get food items that won’t all get eaten in a month, then consider doing a 3 or 6 month option.
