How they Work?
Most, if not all subscription boxes require a short survey from the recipient. This survey gives the company a chance to better understand the lifestyle, needs, and likes, then sends a perfectly curated collection of items.
Some boxes you keep and pay for only items you like. While others send you full and sample size products where you keep all of the items. This is a great gift delivered right to their door at the frequency you choose.
Beer of the month club
For the dad that loves craft breweries (like my husband), consider getting him a Craft Beer Club subscription box. He’ll love having a chance to try different beers each month. Some beer of the month clubs also suggest food pairings. Wine of the month is also an option.
Mystery Tackle Box
For dads who love to spend their free time on a boat waiting for the fish to bite, we found some great options.
With this monthly subscription box comes with tackle and lures, limited edition fishing gear. The survey for this subscription service asks which type of fish are in the waters your dad fishes. This ensures the items received are ideal for the fish that are in his favorite watering hole.
Along with supplies and gear he will also have access to how-to videos filled with tips.
Getting dads and husbands to a store to shop for and try on new apparel might be more miserable than a mammograms (IYKYK.) Put and end to it all. Delivering the options right to his door is the perfect gift.
How they work: you or dad take a survey before receiving the first box to help the subscription company understand dads style. Then, a box of items is delivered, and he gets to try them on in the comfort of home.
There are boxes for every style, from professional to street wear. Everything is tried on at home, then he has the option to purchase his favorite items from the box.
Here are a few we think any dad, husband, or father figure would love.
Stitch fix is great subscription box for variety. After a short quiz the Stitch fix algorithm and stylists learn likes and dislike. They also respond well to feedback and factor that into the items shipped the following month.
You can choose from monthly delivery or quarterly. This subscription service has a $20 fee which you receive as a credit toward any items he decide to keep.
We personally use Stitch Fix, and you can too! Sign up for Stitch Fix.
