Subscription Boxes for Teen Boys

IMG_0628Subscription 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 Boyslootcrate

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.

TeeBloxTeeBlox is $15.48 per month and a t-shirt subscription service that brings 100% authentic licensed geek and gamer shirts to your doorsteps every month. Save 15% on your first month! Use coupon code HELLOSUBSCRIPTION. $11 total! Also check out BustedTees Shirt of the Month . 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!

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! See Tinker Crate in the directory for reviews and any updated deals – take 50% off with code HELLO50.

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 – take 50% off with code HELLO50.

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 HELLO20See Bespoke Post 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 AFMOMMY15See Five Four in the directory for reviews and any updated deals.

Check out the range of fitness-themed boxes, including sport specific ones – try a directory search for the specific sport your teenage boy is in to.


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).

      You are welcome!!! Are you buying for your son? What did you pick out???

    Liz @ Mexican Candy Box

    Thanks for adding Mexican Candy Box to this list. With spicy candy I know the boys would enjoy daring each other to try it.


    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.


    Any 2015 updates?

    • Brandy

      I do need to update this post for 2015. I suggest checking out our new directory for some ideas as well: I haven’t quite finished populating this category yet:

      However, if your teen has a particular interest (clothing, grooming, particular kinds of geek stuff – say tabletop gaming, fishing, whatever he is in to) just type it into the search bar at the top. I am putting this page as well as the directory page on my must-update list for the holidays. Oh and as always with any teen – cool shirts are always awesome:


        Thanks for the response ! I have an almost 13 yo boy who loves crafts but unfortunately all the good craft boxes are pinked out. He loves to tye dye and make moccasins and design stickers for his locker etc. suggestions ?

        • Brandy

          I have been thinking on this one and I’m really not sure. the art supply boxes aren’t really the same thing as a non-pinked up craft box. doodle crate has rebranded (when they launched it was like a heart logo etc and they took a lot of heat) and now they are much more gender neutral. i really don’t have any great answers except that i think you might try looking at brit & co to see if you find anything of interest (one time purchases/kits). but most everything really is women’s accessories.
