Best Monthly Subscription Boxes for Men 2017

There are many reasons for men to get into monthly subscription boxes. For one, it saves a lot of time when it comes to personal shopping–you can get new and trendy clothes, colognes or items of interest without having to leave your home. There’s also the feeling that someone is looking out for you; sending you monthly razors, for example,  to make sure that your current blade never goes dull. And finally, men with hobbies and certain interests can stay abreast on the latest trends and products of their chosen passions.

The men at Comparakeet tried and tested several subscription boxes for men to see what’s inside each one. Which ones deserve the top spots on our list? Here’s what we found.

How Does It Work?

Subscription boxes for men cater to specific masculine tastes and interests: sports, gaming, style, and food.  They usually work in the manner best suited for the products they deliver. Some companies send you a monthly box; and while some curate their boxes around a theme, others don't. For clothing companies, meanwhile, the contents of your boxes are derived from a questionnaire that customers answer in order to build a style profile that determines one's preferences. This allows for a more personal approach, so each box you receive is more likely to contain items that you will want to use and keep.

What Makes a Great Subscription Box for Men?

Since subscription boxes are already so personalized--whether or not the one who does the curating is you or the company--there's very little to consider that's not in the realm of the obvious. Of course we want subscription boxes that are easy to customize, easy to pay for, and easy to cancel. Of course we want delivery dates to be consistent. Of course we'd enjoy a diverse number of items in each box. However, that's not all we took into account.

On top of  overall quality, we've decided  to rank our top reviews in this section according to how relevant they are to the average man's daily life. A subscription service for clothes, for instance, would logically be higher up on the list than one for cured meats.
