If there’s one true thing in this world, it’s that none of us have enough time. There is, sadly, not much we can do about adding a few hours to the daily clock. But we can make the hours that are there really count. And sometimes, that means letting go of the things that are eating up the little time you do have—especially if you’re worried about your own level of expertise. So, if you’re trying to improve your style, or your wine rack, or the way you eat, but you’re just not sure how to go about it, why not trust the experts? And if the experts can ship all the stuff you need to your door every month without fail? Well, all the better!
Of course, finding the right subscription box to solve your specific problems is a chore in and of itself. How do I get the right stuff to drink? To wear? To snack better and live happier? Those are some big questions. Thankfully, you don’t have to go it alone. We’ve done the legwork and compiled a list of the very best delivery options for everything from clothes to booze to kitchen tools. Hell, we’ve even found great spots for cologne and watches! You might never need to leave your home again. Except you’ll want to, because you’ll be looking, feeling, and smelling better than ever. Here are the 43 best subscription boxes to try right now.

(Prices are per item), trunkclub.com
For some guys, clothes shopping is a total nightmare—no idea where to go or what to buy or how to wear it. For them, Trunk Club is a potential lifesaver. Once you sign up, you take a survey that covers personal preferences, the type of clothes you need (casual or dress), sizes, and more. Then you’re given a personal stylist who helps you select items based on those preferences. And unlike many other subscription boxes, Trunk Club is curated whenever you request it, so you can get as much or as little as you need. And there’s no membership fee—you simply keep what you want and return what you don’t.
$45 per month, bespokepost.com
This is for the man who just wants man-stuff arriving on his doorstep every month. The way it works is you set your preferences, and then Bespoke Post recommends a box to you based on those preferences. Each monthly box has a theme and can include things like beer flight kits, grooming supplies, kitchen supplies, or ingredients for the perfect cocktail. And if you don’t like the box that’s suggested, you have the option to switch to a different one, or skip that month altogether.
$20 styling fee plus prices based on each item, stitchfix.com
Like we said earlier, figuring out what to buy when it comes time to shop for clothes can be an excruciating task for some guys. Knowing what will look good, what’s in style, how things should fit just doesn’t come naturally. And then there’s the whole drudgery of actually going into the store. Fortunately Stitch Fix solves all of that. Simply fill out a style and size profile, and whenever you want them, five items picked out by a stylist will be shipped to your door. Simply keep what you want and then send the rest back. And you can improve your selections every time by giving feedback to your stylist.
From $55 per month, threadbeast.com
The most exhausting thing about the hype cycle? Keeping up with the hype cycle. Thankfully, there’s Threadbeast, which takes the “keeping up with” concerns out of the equation. Every month, you’ll get shipped a batch of gear from brands that hit the sweet spot between streetwear, fashion, and stuff people actually wear in real life. You can choose how much you want to receive, and while you’re not going to magically score the most hyped sneakers of the minute, that’s kinda fine. After all, if you have a choice between spending your money on something that’s cool right now or something that’ll still be cool in a few months (or years), wouldn’t you prefer the latter?
$14.95 per month, scentbird.com
For guys who want to switch up their fragrances on a regular basis, Scentbird is a good alternative to spending hundreds of dollars on full bottles. Every month you can choose from an assortment of over 150 designer and niche fragrances, and then have it delivered to your home. And when each new month comes around, you can either stick with the same scent you have or switch to something new.
Price per product, bombfell.com
Fill out a quick quiz on your sizes and style preferences, and a real (human) stylist will help curate your personalized shipment of clothes. You can set your budget to have limits you’re comfortable with spending, and you only have to pay for what you keep. One of the biggest bonuses: You get a preview email before your box is shipped, so you can make adjustments before you even get it.
$20 per month, birchbox.com
A one-stop shop for all of your grooming needs, Birchbox also offers a small assortment of apparel and accessories. You can order items like socks, underwear, candles, and even flasks to go with a wide variety of skincare, haircare, and oral care products, as well as fragrances. The customized box costs $20 a month and comes with four sample grooming items as well as one lifestyle item, like a gadget or an accessory. Members also receive access to the Birchbox shop (plus a discount!), so you can buy more of what you like.
From $29, watchgang.com
Watch Gang gifts you with a new watch every month, sticking to your chosen price point and style preferences. The brand partners with watch companies worldwide, so you’re looking at a wide variety of possibilities each month. You keep each watch you get, so if you’re looking to build a collection, this is a good way to get started. Plus, one random member wins a Rolex every Friday. Worth taking a shot.
House Plant Box
From $11.25, cratejoy.com
Cratejoy has a lot (a lot, a lot) of subscription boxes available. Really, head here to find anything you’re likely to need on a monthly basis. But in particular, this house plant box is a solid purchase for anyone trying to bring more life into their home. The California-grown plants will ship to your house, along with the occasional extra gift like fertilizer.
The most efficient kind of subscription box is one of something that you already use routinely. And what’s more a part of your routine than a good cup of coffee? Expand your flavor horizons with a subscription that sends you sets of single-pack pour over coffee. The best part is that it’s self-contained: The packet is designed with an origami filter, which unfolds and fits over your coffee cup—you don’t actually need a dripper to get a pour over here. Just add hot water and let it brew.
From $25, barkbox.com
Bark Box is just as fun for you as it will be for your dog who’s really reaping the benefits here. In every box there are two toys, two bags of treats, and a chew. Each month is themed, too, so the products all align—everything from New York City to Jurassic Park. Pure entertainment for all involved.
Fab Fit Fun
From $50, fabfitfun.com
When it comes to tightly curated, very usable product exploration, Fab Fit Fun does a pretty great job. There’s a slight focus on fitness, with products like earbuds, post-workout grooming washes, or protein bars. You won’t know what’s inside until you get it, but that’s all part of the fun.
London Sock Co.

From $9, simplelooseleaf.com
Try out four new teas a month with a Loose Leaf subscription. For a thoughtful tea cabinet expansion, it’s worth knowing what you actually like before investing in a bunch of it.

From $32 per month, outdoorfellow.com
A fully stocked candle assortment makes for a happy—and good-smelling—home.

They’re better than any vending machine snacks we’ve ever seen.
From $20, urthbox.com
Snacks are good. Healthy snacks are even better. Urthbox lets you choose from four types of diets (like vegan or gluten free) in four sizes of snack boxes (from mini to large).

$19 per month, stance.com
Stance makes some of the most comfortable underwear and socks around. The best part? Pop culture, from sports to movies, makes up a huge part of the product’s pattern wheelhouse. You can choose your preferred item (underwear or specific style of sock); how many you want (2, 3, or 4 pairs); and how often you want them (monthly or quarterly).
Amazon Prime Wardrobe
Priced per item, amazon.com
For some guys, the prospect of an online stylist picking out their clothes is a welcome one. For others, it’s a straight-up no-go. If you’re part of that latter camp and actually enjoy the process of building out your closet, Amazon’s Prime Wardrobe is basically your shopping secret weapon. You get three to eight items sent to you to try out, only pay for the ones you decide to keep, and return the rest with a pre-paid shipping label. It’s old-school shopping—just a billion times easier.
From $13 per bottle, winc.com
Like other wine subscription services, Winc lets you set your preferences and continues to evolve your personalization by incorporating your ratings of bottles you’ve already tried. What makes it a little different, though, is that Winc doesn’t just curate wine—it creates the stuff. So you’ll be paying—by the bottle, in minimum shipments of four bottles—for some particularly interesting, exclusive juice. Bonus: shipping is free.
Daily High Club
From $1 per month, dailyhighclub.com
We can’t confirm that Daily High Club’s acronym, DHC, is a riff on THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis. But we’d like to believe that’s the case. And while it won’t provide the actual main event, as it were, DHC will provide you with everything you need to enjoy smoking—whether you’re just starting out (papers, matches) or a dedicated consumer (the “Blunt Gang November” box).
Blue Bottle Coffee
From $8, bluebottlecoffee.com
Your daily coffee habit isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but you can save more than a few bucks by opting to brew at home. And you don’t have to sacrifice quality, either. Blue Bottle’s beans are always small batch and hand-roasted, and you can choose what’s right for your home: blended, single-origin, or espresso.
$210 for a one-year subscription, flaviar.com
Think of Flaviar like an extremely well-stocked speakeasy where you can try new stuff to your heart’s content—just, you know, in the comfort of your own home. The club—and it really is more of a club—will help you explore new flavors of whiskey, gin, and more in tasting boxes. If you like those, you can even buy full bottles with free shipping. The liquor ranges from well-known to rare-as-hell, so it’s particularly great for adventurous palates.
From $79.95 per 6-bottle shipment, firstleaf.club
After an initial steal of a shipment that gets you three bottles for just $5 a pop, Firstleaf sends you six hand-selected bottles for $79.95 (plus $9.95 shipping). The service also takes your feedback into account. You start out by entering preferences—red or white?—and after that you can rank each bottle you receive, and those rankings inform future orders. It just keeps getting better.
The Tie Bar
From $45 to $259 per month, thetiebar.com
The Tie Bar made shopping for the perfect tie (or any accessory really) much more enjoyable than it used to be. And with a subscription service, you don’t even need to shop at all; the folks at the company will do that for you. There are a ton of options for your Tie Bar subscription, so you can tailor it to your needs—socks, ties, and bow ties are all in the mix.
Dollar Shave Club
$9 per month, dollarshaveclub.com
Dollar Shave Club really uprooted the grooming game with its monthly subscription service. You can opt in for the products you need the most (like razors and blades) and have flexibility on delivery.

From $19 per month, beanbox.com

No need to fret about food safety here; they come frozen and packaged tightly in an insulated box.
Wandering Bear Coffee
Prices vary, wanderingbearcoffee.com
Never drink garbage office coffee again. Wandering Bear is a subscription service delivering fresh cold brew. You could get a plan for just you, or opt your office into a company-wide office option.

Starting at $15.99 per shipment, mistobox.com
The good news for coffee lovers is that we currently live in a world full of amazing coffee. The bad news is that, with so many choices, it can all get a little overwhelming. With Mistobox, you simply enter in your preferences, and then a coffee curator selects your perfect 12-oz bag of coffee based on your flavor profile from a list of over 300 choices. And in order to keep it as fresh as possible, the coffee isn’t roasted until you order it. The best part is you can have a bag delivered whenever you want it.

It’s like manna from the postal service for the aspiring Pitti peacock.
$16 per month, meundies.com
If you’re like most guys, you probably only buy underwear when you suddenly realize you’re down to your last three pairs. Or when you need to do laundry but don’t want to. With MeUndies, you get a fresh new pair every month, so you never have to remember to buy them again. And you get to choose between classic, bold, or adventurous, so you can be as wild and colorful, or reserved and conservative, as you want.

Paul Smith Sock Subscription
$235 per year, paulsmith.com
Socks, like underwear, can be an annoying thing to stay on top of. Especially since single socks like to disappear in the laundry. With the Paul Smith Sock subscription, you get a new pair of the iconic British designer’s famously colorful socks every month. And given that bright socks have made a big comeback of late, this is especially good for the guy who likes to show a little personality around the ankle.
