Better Half Box is a brand new subscription box that offers two different themes per month — one for women and another for men. Each box will contain 6 to 8 full sized products. They could be anything from home goods, to beauty, fashion, and more. Special edition boxes for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays will also be available for purchase in their online shop.
Subscriptions are currently $29 for the first month (use coupon code “FIRSTBOX29“), and then $39 for each month thereafter. Multi-month commitments are also available at a discounted rate.
Let’s see what’s in the May 2015 Better Half Box (Men’s Edition)!
As with the women’s version, everything was shipped inside a large white box adorned with the Better Half Box logo.
The theme for May’s men’s box was “Casino Royale”.
The full-color info sheet listed all of the products I’d find inside, as well as photos and brief descriptions of each one.
Air Force Aviator Sunglasses ($6.28) – These glasses totally remind me of the movie “The Hangover”, which happens to be set in Vegas, so a perfect choice for this box. They have a UV 400 protection and feature a classic black color scheme.
Money Soap by Virginia Candle Company ($12.50) – Okay, this is definitely my favorite item in the box! I’ve always kinda wanted to get one of these “money soaps”, but never wanted to actually shell out the cash to buy it myself. In the center of the bar is a real US bill. — It could be $1, $5, $10, $20, or even $50! I’ve heard this is a great incentive to get kids to wash their hands. 😉
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm ($7.50) – Though this is intended for men, I just may steal this lip balm for myself. I love anything grapefruit or ginger flavored, and this has both. It also has an SPF of 25 to protect your lips from the sun.
Bicycle World Series of Poker Cards ($6.59) – You can’t have a Vegas-themed box without a pack of playing cards. These are World Series of Poker tournament-inspired cards with a durable plastic coating.
Las Vegas Shot Glass ($6.95) – Another Vegas must: A shot glass. ‘Nuff said.
Chicks Dig Me Pappy’s Mango Chipotle Grilling Sauce ($6.99) – This mango chipotle sauce has a sweet & spicy flavor and is perfect for grilling up your protein of choice. Sadly (for me), it contains anchovies, so I won’t get to try it. Aw.
Better Half Box 4GB USB Pen (~$5?) – I’m not sure why this photo turned out so awful, but… it did. Anywhooo, this is a cool pen/USB combo. The USB drive snaps into place at the end of the pen so you can easily carry it with you wherever you go. Pretty neat.
Chocolate Poker Chips (~$1?) – Poker chips! Chocolate ones. A fun, edible addition to the box.
As with the women’s box, I thought this was also a great first offering from Better Half Box. The casino/Vegas theme was an ideal choice for men, and the variety of items was impressive. All totaled (using mostly Amazon prices), the overall value of everything was about $53. Lower than the women’s box, but still a decent value.
If you’d like to sign up for Better Half Box (women’s or men’s version), you can get your first box for just $29 when you use coupon code “FIRSTBOX29″ at checkout! — June’s women’s box theme will be “Island Adventure” & the men’s theme will be “Grillin’ & Chillin’”!Browse more Men's Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
