It’s that time again where we go crazy trying to find valentines day ideas and the perfect gift to show how much we love the people in our lives. Why not relieve the stress and shake things up by giving a gift that keeps on giving.
Subscription boxes are the hottest trend right now. And why shouldn’t they be? Every month (depends on subscription) you get a box of goodies that correlate with your passions and hobbies. Not to mention, who doesn’t like to get a few small surprises? You don’t have to wait for your birthday, to dive into the constant array of sweet gifts. Since Loot Crate has done so well in the last two years, more and more companies have decided to create their own subscription boxes catering even more to peoples desires and hobbies. Leaving the masses with endless possibilities to choose from.
Here are our favorite and cute valentine’s day gifts for him and the best subscription boxes for your favorite guy.

33 Sprezza Box:
The two biggest types of subscription boxes for guys are anything to do with nerd culture and style. That is why when searching for the perfect one, it can become a little overwhelming. SprezzaBox is one of my favorite boxes to send to guys who love the Dapper Style. For only $25 a month, you’re guaranteed to have over $100 in value. I’m a sucker for more bang for the buck. With this stylish box, you can expect 5 to 6 handpicked products from their stylists. Typical items include ties, socks, pocket squares, and grooming products.

44 Loot Crate for your valentine:
This beast of a company has everything you could possible imagine. Depending on the box it could range anywhere from $8.99 to $30 for a monthly box. However, they always have great deals and promotions going on. While most subscription boxes have that one niche, Loot Crate has expanded to a variety of different crates to fit your every whim. Though they all cater around the fandom world, you can find crates focusing on clothing (Level Up), exclusive crates (Star Wars), for pets, anime, and soon to be gaming.

55 Wil Wheaton Box:
Wil Wheaton is a steeple in the nerd/gaming community. While is box is quarterly and $100 a box, it’s WORTH IT! You might think 100 is a lot, but you think you only get four boxes compared to 12 a year, the price equals out a little. The only down fall is they keep a tight lid on what you could expect. The real draw of this box is that Wil Wheaton is hand picking items that mean something to him, to share. Not to mention also comes with a personal letter from the nerd god himself.

66 Game Box Monthly:
This subscription box is a must if your guys is big into tabletop games. Not only do they send some of the higher quality indie games, but they go out of their way by making sure they don’t send you something you already have. This is rare in the subscription box side, because usually that’s a hard thing to organized and keep track of. On top of that, they also allow you to customize your subscription, to guarantee that each months you will love what you get. This box is only $25 a month, which with the price of tabletop games can either cause you to break even or a great value.

Each box features a range of top-shelf FULL SIZED are supplies. Full size is huge in the world of subscription boxes and is the main reason why this box is a little more on the pricey side at $49.95 a month.

The down fall of monthly boxes is that you could lose space in your home quickly with all the amazing things that come each month. That is the upside to a quarterly box. With GQ’s Quarterly box, your guy could expect a wide variety of stuff. Sometimes, it’s fun to not know exactly what you’re getting because it allows you to try different things and explore. However, if your guy is a picky shopper, this $100 scription might not be the one for him.
