And here's the Bespoke Post box that I picked up for my husband for Christmas, the last of our super-awesome Groupon deal for a Bespoke Post subscription. Ordinarily, a box is a little pricey at $45 US (or $55 for a one-time purchase). Shipping to Canada is an extra $10 but I have found a few boxes that will not ship here (one I really wanted was "too heavy"). But I picked this one up for about $63 plus shipping with that deal. Although I really love Bespoke Post's boxes, this will likely be our last for quite awhile as they are pricey to begin with. . . and exchange is killing my cross-border shopping these days :( I won't cancel (yet) though because I can easily skip until there's a box I can't resist, our dollar gets better, or I need to pick up a great gift for someone.
Although Bespoke Post does ship once a month, their website allows you to skip a month or swap out the box they've selected for any other available box (there are usually a few new options as well as some old favourites). If you forget to skip or swap, they will send you your default box for the month, as many of these types of subs do. Billed as a men's subscription, I prefer to think of Bespoke Post as a lifestyle sub. True, some boxes seem very geared towards men but a lot of them would appeal to anyone!
As for this box, Distilled, it's the perfect combination of two of my husband's favourite things: science and gin :) Seriously, it's like a chemistry set for booze - check it out:
