The Gift for Dad That Keeps Giving Throughout the Year

Cash and gift cards may be the most universal gifts, but they’re also among the most impersonal.

For a sure-to-please gift that also is thoughtful and original, consider a subscription box.

It’s basically a box of products that center on a theme, mailed out on a recurring basis. Think of it as the modern-day evolution of gift-of-the-month clubs.

For example, say that you buy Dad six months’ worth of a gourmet jerky subscription box from Jerky Snob. He will receive a delivery of different gourmet jerky products each month for the next six months.

The best place to shop or window shop for a subscription box is

It’s an online marketplace for subscription boxes — and the only such marketplace, according to Cratejoy. That basically means it’s a single website through which many subscription-box companies sell their wares — which is why you will find more than 1,500 subscription boxes on Cratejoy’s site.

In short, Cratejoy has something for everyone — even hard-to-shop-for dads.

Whatever seemingly strange hobby or obsession your gift recipient may have, there’s probably a subscription box that’s perfect for him. Just take a look at the many options in Cratejoy’s “Subscription Boxes for Men” section.

A few examples:

Note that some subscription boxes are currently on sale — see the “Deals for Dad” section.

Once you find something you like, click the “Subscribe Now” or “Give as a Gift” button. You will be prompted to create a free account, or sign in using your Facebook or Google account, so you can proceed to checkout. There, you can choose from options like the length of the subscription.
