May 2017 Gentleman’s Box review time!
If you haven’t heard, Gentleman’s Box is a men’s subscription box that delivers a monthly selection of essentials designed for the modern gentleman. Each box will consist of 4 to 6 hand-selected products for men, accompanied by a one-year subscription to GQ magazine (US and Canada only). To pay homage to the iconic men of the world, a new gentleman is selected as each month’s theme. The products inside each Gentleman’s Box are picked to reflect the class and style of that month’s featured individual. Items can include wardrobe accessories such as ties, cufflinks, pocket squares, & socks, as well as grooming supplies like lotions, cleansers, and fragrances.

Let’s see what’s in the May 2017 Gentleman’s Box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small box with a manly faux wood design.
A peek inside!
An info booklet let subscribers know which “iconic gentleman” was being honored in May’s box, which ended up being a whole group of men — Southern Gentlemen, to be exact. (Gentleman’s Box actually partnered with Jim Beam this month!) The booklet was also loaded with plenty of information including product info, style inspiration, a look at “Southern hospitality”, recipes, and more.
Salt + Dapper Tie ($39)
Gentleman’s Box always seems to include the nicest ties, most wearable ties. Never anything too weird or flashy. This maroon, black, and white plaid printed piece is a perfect example. It’s super versatile and made of lightweight (yet sturdy) 100% cotton.
A delicate, hand-cut burgundy lapel flower to add a little extra flair to your dapper ensemble. The included card suggests pairing it with a blue silk tie and a white, red, or pink pocket square for maximum effect.
Made exclusively for Gentleman’s Box members, these handcrafted coasters are made from 100% sustainably-sourced walnut wood. For every product sold, Woodchuck USA plants one tree. Since it only takes one tree to make 3,000 products, they’re planting roughly 3,000 times more than they use. Nice!
Southern Scholar Socks ($12)
Polka dots! These fun maroon, white, and gray socks feature a ribbed cuff, reinforced stitching on the toe & heel, and a breathable spandex/polyester blend. Love ’em. 🙂
This “Kentucky Bourbon” hand & body lotion is made with organic ingredients that help hydrate your skin without feeling sticky or greasy. It has a great scent with notes of vetiver, cedar, bourbon, cognac, palmarosa, and rose.
Jim Beam Black Ice Tray
The info booklet didn’t include a retail value for this, so I’m guessing it’s just a fun bonus item. The large size of the ice cubes made in this tray melt slowly, helping to prevent dilution of your drink. Cheers!
I think May’s Gentleman’s Box was my favorite one to date. It was packed with great useful & stylish items with a total retail value of $119 without including the ice tray. Very nice! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “GB5OFF”!
