Bespoke: January 2016

So it’s been quiet over here at Subscription Therapy, unless you count my hacking cough from catching the flu. I’m finally past the worst of it and ready to get back to my boxes.

I had mentioned before that you’d see quite a few Men’s subscription boxes coming up and today I’ve got Bespoke, a men’s lifestyle sub. I’ve been eying this one for a while and I finally decided to jump in and grab a box for my boyfriend.

How it Works: Each month we assemble a new collection of themed goods to create the Box of Awesome”

Who doesn’t want a “Box of Awesome”?

What’s inside?: “Each box is a limited-edition, themed collection of men’s lifestyle gear from up-and-coming brands that we admire, spanning all areas of your day-to-day.”

Cost: “Join the club and boxes always cost $45 – there’s no commitment and you can skip a box anytime. Otherwise, boxes cost $55.”

Now here’s the great part about this sub, you can choose your first box from their existing collections, opt to skip any month or purchase additional items for upgrade. It’s really designed so you don’t end up with stuff you don’t want or use and I really appreciate that.

Because I wanted to try to go on some weekend trips this year and my boyfriend really didn’t have a nice bag, I nabbed their Weekender box as a gift.

This cost $45 if you sign up for a subscription and $55 if you just want a one time purchase.

My pictures aren’t quite so great since I was trying to sneak them before I wrapped this one up as a gift.
It came in a nice long box.

The canvas and leather bag seemed quite sturdy and included a detachable strap. The design was simple and nicely sized for a weekend trip.

It also came with a little bag of extra freebies including cards and body wipes.

Verdict:
Hit!
This is my favorite male subscription box that I’ve seen so far. Not only is it very customizable but most of the boxes are unisex. I’d happily use this weekender bag and there are tons of boxes they offer that I’d love to have for myself. If there’s a special guy in your life, I think a gift sub to Bespoke would be a great option. He can pick and choose the items he likes for himself and they offer everything from toiletries to booze to accessories.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
