Birchbox Man (birchbox.com/men)
In 2010, Harvard Business School grads Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp founded beauty-sampling service Birchbox, which mails trial-sized products to your door for $10 per month. Following the company’s runaway success, the duo applied its model to men’s grooming with the April debut of Birchbox Man. The $20-per-month subscription is perfect for the image-conscious guy in your life, but even low-maintenance dudes will appreciate receiving three or four samples from brands such as Anthony for Men, Kiehl’s and Billy Jealousy, along with lifestyle goodies (October boxes included Teroforma Whisky Stones and a knit tie from Brooklyn label the Knottery). An online shop allows recipients to purchase full-size versions of their favorite items and rack up points for each dollar spent on the site (100 points gets you $10 off a future order). Gift subscriptions are available in three- ($60), six- ($110) and 12-month ($195) increments, and include a welcome box filled with best-sellers.
