Men's Subscription Box Gift Guide

This year, skip the silk tie and get your special someone a gift he can appreciate all year long. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite subscription boxes that specialize in all things male – from gaming, to food, and even to fishing.

The only thing better than getting one big gift is getting a dozen little ones throughout the year. If you’re like me, you dread the countless amounts of bills and spam that tumble out of the mailbox. Subscription boxes give the giftee a special something to look forward to every month, so they really are creative gifts that just keep on giving.

Take a peek at some of our favorites on the market, and make your loved ones holidays a little happier by picking the perfect box to fit their personality.
