In our Amazon Prime’d world, it’s easy to get anything delivered right to us. Need more wipes? More binkies? One-hundred Lego heads with goatees? Fill your cart and click the button. But sometimes it’s still nice to receive a box that you don’t have to fill yourself, one that just shows up and contains a little bit of mystery. That’s the promise of the very popular subscription box trend: choose a box that fits your interests (food, comics) or needs (underwear, grooming supplies) pay a flat rate, and every month something new arrives at your doorstep. The problem, of course, is there are more subscription boxes than there are soon-to-be parents who want to name their kids “Harper” or “Paige”. So, to help you make the best choice, we whittled down the list to our favorites within a reasonable price range. Here, then, are our seven favorite subscription boxes for men under $50.

Every month Bespoke Post releases a set of boxes built around a theme—bar, beach, bath, or weekend escape were a recent few, to ship to you based on your preferences. You get to peruse them online before they ship it to you and choose the one that suits you best, or skip that month entirely.
