Bespoke Post - November 2014

I received this product for review purposes

Calling all gentlemen!

The holidays are here! Now for me, it's typically the busiest time of year with finding gifts and preparing for birthdays that fall around this time. It can also be the hardest times of the year especially when it comes to one man in my life, my boyfriend. When it comes to gifting, I'm always up for it because I love making people smile and it gives me another reason to do some fun shopping. However, when it comes to shopping for Andrew, it can certainly make me clueless since he's not like most guys who can almost fall in love with anything but he'll definitely give me credit for effort and is grateful for everything I do which I'm happy for. I think this year a load can be taken off of my back with the help of Bespoke Post!

Bespoke Post is a men's subscription service that scours the world for fresh and interesting products. Each month features a new themed "Box of Awesome" which is generally a nicely curated box of high quality products. There are about 6 - 8 different boxes to choose from each month, and usually 2 new boxes are added and 2 retire. Luckily you'll have the opportunity to preview the boxes beforehand where you can choose to ship it or skip it at no cost. The choice is all yours! Each box is a limited edition, themed collection of men's lifestyle gear from up and coming brands. Each box has a value of over $70 and only costs $45 monthly. You can also purchase a box without joining the club for $55. These boxes will make the perfect gift for your boyfriend, husband, or groomsmen, or men in general just in time for the holidays!

This month I choose to review the Highlands box. Trust me, it was hard deciding on a box and I'm not even a guy! There were quite a few to choose from that were just perfect in its own personal way. I didn't let Andrew choose this box because I decided that it would be a surprise for him (hopefully he doesn't witness this post). 

The Ports Products grooming essentials is great gift for any guy to add to his daily grooming regime. Andrew is not as conscious as I am when it comes to skincare products but I think this will be great for him because they're high quality skincare basics. Included in the pouch is a 1 oz bottle of a Detoxifying cleanser, Balancing moisturizer, and a Shave cream. 

This next product from Paine Products is one that I found very interesting based on the smell. I'm not big on incense and I even had my roommate test out the smell also since I have a very sensitive nose. So far our thoughts combined summed up to be: lumberjack. It's a very strong woodsy scent which is certainly not my taste probably because I'm a city girl. However if you happen to love the smell of trees, bark, the woods or anything falling in that area of smells then this will be great for you or someone in your life who you can relate this too.  

The Gilded Age scarf definitely consumed all of my attention once I opened the box. I thought of it as the prize of the entire box of awesomeness. The scarf is made out of 100% extra fine Mongolian wool and the retail surely beats the price for the Bespoke Post box itself. At first, I thought it was a bit absurd that this scarf can be so pricey but once I got my hands on it I couldn't believe how soft, cozy, and comfortable it was. It's so amazing that I even thought of keeping for myself. Definitely puts my pashmina to shame. There were three colors to choose from for this box and I choose the charcoal with ash stripe. This is a luxury gift that I'm sure any guy won't be able to turn down!

Overall, Bespoke Post has impressed me far beyond words. The quality of the products were wonderful and the value was out of this world worth it. At only $45 as a monthly box (or $55 as a one time purchase), for $157 worth of products, I'm sure this is the best deal ever that I've ever received in any subscription box that I've owned. If you're not up for the Highlands box, there are many other curated options to choose from that are currently available. I can't wait to gift this box for the holidays! Ladies, I hope this helps you out a bit when it comes to choosing something for your significant other. Gentlemen, I hope you're in love.
