A SUBSCRIPTION box is a great way to receive a treat on a regular basis.
So here's our guide to help you find something you'll really like, and that you can look forward to opening each month.
There's no denying it: a box full of goodies can make your day, or even week, instantly better.
And that's why subscription services are so popular right now — there has never been more choice.
But with an array of such services, it's easy to get lost, so we've come up with this guide to help you to find the right subscription for you.
Don't forget that men's subscription boxes also make a great present for someone you love, so check out this list for Christmas inspiration.
We tested: Stitch Fix
- Subscribe to Stitch Fix here
If you're looking to upgrade your style (or the style of someone you love) then Stitch Fix is a very handy companion.
The personal shopping service is designed to offer personalised and bespoke fashion recommendations, as well as take the stress out of shopping — garments arrive neatly packaged and are easily returnable if they don't take your fancy.
It's easy for a service like this to feel impersonal, but we loved that stylists put a lot of effort and thought into each "Fix", and despite our pickiness, we kept most of the items we were sent.

We Tested: Harry's Shave Plan

Harry's Shave Plan has been around for a while and is still a popular option despite the number of rival shave clubs.
Costing £19 for a batch of eight razors with a 200ml foaming shave gel, you can tailor your order to arrive once every two, three or five months, depending on how often you tackle your face fuzz.
We gave the plan a go and we liked the design of the razor and found the grippy handle a joy to use.
The razors also have an edging blade at the top to tackle difficult-to-reach areas of your face.
If you haven't tried a five-blade razor before, they can take a bit of getting used to, but ultimately, we found we prefer them. We also found that the gel smelled a lot nicer than others we've tried.
You can try out Harry's with a free trial set to see if you end up liking the blades or not.
