Almost everyday feels like Christmas around our office. Why? Because we get to open fun and exciting packages full of surprising tech goodies companies send us to review. The best new phones, speakers, tablets, watches, VR gear and various other tech accessories arrive en masse at our UPS box and the endorphins start flowing the minute I realize another fun box was delivered. There’s just something about getting something new delivered that’s EXCITING. Doesn’t have to be big or even expensive. Getting new stuff in the mail is jut FUN. But what if you could get something fun AND useful delivered to your door every single month?! Well, you can.
A number of subscription services exist to help you live better and more conveniently. Stuff you want and need just shows up at your house. BAM! Happiness ensues. From guys grooming supplies and clothes (which, let’s face it guys, we hate to go out and buy ourselves) to women’s beauty and fashion products to more niche categories like stuff for nerds, parents and kids, pets and food. We’re talking about stuff that would be considered amazing gift ideas (whether for someone else or just for yourself!) for birthdays, holidays or “just because.” I’ve been wanting to make a good list with these products for a long time. Enjoy (I know you will). Oh, and don’t forget to checkout the BONUS ITEM at the end of this post… it’s a new subscription service that will make your home or office SO AWESOME. And if you’re a dude, don’t miss our roundup of 20 sites with awesome gear for men.
We publish useful new tech lists every weekday. See them all!
Birchbox (for Men and Women)
Birchbox is getting special attention/credit for being the original monthly goodies subscription service. Birchbox offers a Beauty Box for women and a Grooming Box for men. Awhile back Birchbox sent DailyTekk a sample box and our staff LOVED it. From the moment the box arrived we knew it was going to be good. Inside there were all kinds of useful products. Birchbox is highly recommended by DailyTekk (and no, we weren’t paid to say that). Oh, and did we mentioned your deliveries are customized just for you?
We’ve covered Trunk Club on DailyTekk before (see Men Hate Buying Clothes But These Sites Make Clothes Shopping Look Good); it’s been one of the most popular links on our site for quite a while. Our audience seems to love it (I know for a fact that LOTS of our readers have bought clothes from Trunk Club in recent months). Trunk Club gives guys a personal stylist to help you find premium clothes that fit your style and budget.
