Favorite subscription boxes for men
Not all men are alike, so why should subscription boxes for men be identical? Some men are tech aficionados, some live for pickleball. Some men are dedicated plant dads (hello, plant subscription boxes), while others can’t wait to test out their grilling skills or showcase their knowledge as amateur sommeliers. That’s why subscription boxes are so fun—and make the best gifts for men. Not only are they convenient (just choose the frequency and the products you’d like delivered), they’re also extremely personalized. The best subscription services offer style or preference quizzes, so your vegan husband won’t find wagyu steak in his box and your yoga-loving best friend can count on Zen-like items rather than noisy ones.
There are subscription boxes for every interest and hobby out there. There are even clothing rental services that make great gifts for boyfriends, gifts for husbands or gifts for dads. If you’d like to surprise someone with an unexpected gift or just want to treat yourself to convenient cologne, clothing or wine deliveries, consider these top picks for the best subscription boxes for men.

Best for the sharp dresser: Stitch Fix
Cost: Starts at $20
Most people know about Stitch Fix for women, but did you know there’s a men’s subscription box as well? Anyone ready to discover new styles simply takes a style quiz. After that, stylists will choose pieces that best reflect your style, and each month, you’ll receive a box of clothing. The $20 stylist’s fee will be applied to anything you end up buying.
While you won’t find high-end fashion in these boxes, you will find a variety of products, including outerwear, footwear, office and casualwear, and men’s pajamas, as well as tried-and-true brands, such as Bonobos, Faherty, Barbour and Tommy Bahama.
Featured in the box: Denim, shoes, sweaters, outerwear

Best for the corporate guy: Twillory
Cost: Button-down shirts start at $99
While Twillory is best known for its shirts, the menswear company also sells a robust variety of clothing favorites, including blazers, pants, underwear and socks.

For example, buy one non-iron, moisture-wicking button-down for $99, two for $158, three for $209 and four for $65 each.
The website can be a bit complicated to navigate, but once you do, you’ll find high-rated shirt collections able to be replenished as you need them. Most reviewers rave about the comfort and performance factor of their button-down shirts. Also, they’re not necessarily meant to be tucked in, so they have a nice stretch to them and can be a bit more forgiving as well.

- Comfortable shirts, even for work and events
- Flattering to most body types
- Performance, business-casual and more formal options
