Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Subscription Boxes for BOYS! 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. We 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. We cover teen boys from 13-19 in this list, as well as tween and pre-teen boys, about age 9-12!

    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: http://boxes.hellosubscription.com/subscription-boxes-for-teens-tweens/ I haven’t quite finished populating this category yet: http://boxes.hellosubscription.com/subscriptions/subscription-boxes-for-teenage-boys/

      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: http://boxes.hellosubscription.com/subscriptions/t-shirt-subscription-boxes/

      • Laura

        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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Tina

    I have never found soooo many excellent creative, productive, inviting, & just all around genius gift ideas!!!
    Many many extra thanks to all those who take the time to discover & uncover these delightful treats!!!

    • Brandy

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