Subscription Boxes for BOYS! This is a repost of a guide from a couple years ago. 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. If you have additional suggestions or questions, please leave your comment at the bottom. – Updated 11/7/15

Top Subscription Boxes for Teenage Boys
I hate to generalize, but for the average 14 year old boy, they’ll love Loot Crate or any “Geek” Subscription Box! Loot Crate is $19.95 per month, and is very themed, but full of exclusive items. Save $3 on your first box. Use coupon code SAVE3. Or, save 10% on any subscription plan wite coupon code HELLOSUBSCRIPTION. See Loot Crate in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
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. Get your first box free! Use this link to get the deal. Pay $4.95 shipping. One free box per brand per household. Expired 10/31, but still working – get it while you can! See Tinker Crate in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
Doodle Crate was originally targeted only at girls, but has morphed into a gender-neutral subscription. If your boy likes creating and crafting, give Doodle Crate a try! See Doodle Crate in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
There’s also a subscription box for RC enthusiasts – Check out HobbyTron’s RC Subscription!
Bespoke Post is a monthly box of Awesome with high-end curated products for men. Some of the themes do revolve around alcohol or cigars, but I know many moms who let their older teenage boys pick from the other themes. You can skip this subscription or change your box, and they do have a lot that young gentlemen would be interested in. Save 20% on your first box with coupon code HELLO20. See Bespoke Post in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
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. Save $10 on your first box. Use coupon code media-deal. See Pijon Box in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
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. Take $15 off your first box. Use coupon code AFMOMMY15. See Five Four in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.
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.
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. Candy fiends will love Candy Club, while more adventurous palates may prefer an around-the-world style snack subscription like Treats Box (Save 15% on your first box with coupon code HELLO15).
