The folks from 800razors.com sent me some great, guy-gift ideas yesterday. I’ll get to the razors, but first — some other clever stuff:
Mantry.com – is billed as the modern man’s pantry. For a monthly subscription of $75 plus shipping, Mantry sends a box of American made foods from really cool vendors to your door in a crate.
I know this sounds pricey, but the products sound awesome, and reviews are great. Right now, a $100 order gets you free shipping. The crate alone is pretty cool. The web site is not particularly easy to use. Hit Media to get the info you want because What is Mantry is not informative, in my opinion. The Twitter page is loaded with photos of all the products. Go to @mantry and you will see pix of some of the neat products. Mantry is also on Facebook. For even better info, here’s a review of the “Bacon Nation” box in the blog Ramblings by a Suburban mom. She’s been reviewing Mantry for more than a year, so you can read her reviews back to last year. The stuff in these boxes sounds just plain fun — and deelish!
Birchbox for Men – it’s the alternative to Birchbox for Women — almost everyone I know subscribes to this one. The male version gives guys lots of stuff with a subscription that starts at $20 per month.
MysteryTackleBox.com, This one’s not high on my list, but if you have a fisherman to buy for, this one has subscriptions for only about $15 a month.
Now for the razors. You gotta love a company that says they don’t sell those “crappy razors.” I hear ya. The 800razors.com site offers American made razors for $9.99 a month. You get a handle with 4 high-quality 5-blade razor cartridges. We spend a fortune on razor blades at this house. This one might be worth checking out, and I thank them for sending all the great ideas for guy gifts. Entrepreneur/founder Phil Masiello got some great reviews. Here’s one from the Washington Post.
