IMG_0628 Subscription Boxes for BOYS! Thanks to reader Angela for this question – What subscriptions might be a good gift for teenage boys? As we all know there are far fewer boxes for men than for women, and even fewer subscriptions great for teens and none at all specifically for teenage boys. I hope these suggestions help! The subscription boxes for college students shouldn’t be ignored for this age group. Chances are they’ll love and have use for items that are a little more grown up. Don’t forget to check out my husband’s reviews of subscription boxes for men! If you have additional suggestions or questions, please leave your comment at the bottom. – Updated 10/31/14!

Top Subscription Boxes for Teenage Boys

I hate to generalize, but for the average 14 year old boy, they’ll love Loot Crate or Nerd Block! Also check out my list of all the Geek/Gamer/Nerd Subscription Boxes!


Get Tinker Crate If you’re looking for a more educational hands-on experience. Tinker Crate inspires kids to explore and learn about science, engineering, and technology—and have fun doing it. Every month, a new crate to help kids develop a tinkering mindset and creative problem solving skills.


There’s a great new subscription box for RC enthusiasts that any boy would love! Check out HobbyTron’s RC Subscription!


PijonBox is technically for college students, but any teenage boy would love this subscription. He will get a useful mix of grooming, food, and lifestyle products geared towards his general age group.


I think BustedTees Shirt of the Month would be an excellent subscription for the right boy. It’s not a surprise – but they can select their own cool shirt monthly. I’m sure a large percentage of teen boy allowances go towards finding awesome shirts nobody’s ever seen!

Do you hate fighting with your boy about clothing? Five Four Clothing is a general clothing subscription that he can fill out a style profile and get sweet duds (this is a really hot subscription btw!) delivered every month.

This will vary by the boy – there’s a range of fitness-themed boxes, including sport specific ones.

As for grooming, be aware there may sometimes be products marketed for the cojones!  Just fair warning! Better to have them nice & dry than worry about what they call the products, right?!  Birchbox Man would be great for the more sophisticated or older teen boy. It’s highly customizable too (you can pick options like oily skin & excessive perspiration, but still totally avoid Axe! Plus you can specifically tell Birchbox you’re underage and you shouldn’t get alcohol related items in this box!).


Want to go for just shaving? Dollar Shave Club has 3 levels of blades plus add-ons, and Harry’s has more refined selections with German-engineered blades. 

Snacks are always a win for teenage boys! Love With Food is a fantastic subscription with tons of variety, or you could choose one of the many international snack subscriptions in my directory.

Depending on the collection, one-off box company The Conscious Collection (a project of Teens Turning Green) might make a splendid box for a young gentleman, plus proceeds support other teens!

    Do not subscribe to hobbytron. I signed up for a 6 month program. The first box came late, and contained a broken helicopter. I just received my second box, and I got another broken helicopter. Check the BBB reviews. They are a horrible company that rips off their consumers. I wasted $179 to subscribe to nothing but broken toys. You will be very disappointed with this company.
