November Bespoke Post

Bespoke Post is a monthly subscription box that is geared towards men.  Why they say it's for men is beyond me cause I think lots of woman would love their products.  Maybe it's a marketing thing to get more men to buy and the women don't care if it says it's for men they will buy it anyway. 

Bespoke Post advertises their subscription service as a monthly box of awesome.  The way is works is like this.  You subscribe by giving them your email address.  This doesn't obligate you to anything but it will give you the ability to look at the available boxes.  If you like the box you can purchase it, if you don't then do nothing.  When I first signed up the box offered was men's socks.  The boyfriend wears white socks and the occasional black socks with dress shoes so this wasn't something I was interested in.  The next month I received an email on the 1st of the month and with something that was right up my alley.  The price of the box was $45.00 w/shipping included. They had sent me received an email saying the shipment was going to be delayed but assured me it was worth the wait.  If I had decided I didn't want that month's box all I would have to have done is skip by the 5th of the month.  If you don't skip you get a credit towards a future box. 

The good:

Know what your getting: $45 is a lot to spend on a surprise so Bespoke let's you know what the expect and you decide if you want it or not

Different boxes: They are now offering differing boxes each month.  In December they had 3 different ones to choose from or get one of each.  The choice is yours. 

Don't like the box you received: Bespoke lets you return your box for a refund or credit.  How awesome is that. 

Skip a month: don't want any of the boxes, trying to save money - just skip the month

The not so good:

I really can't think of anything

Here are my Bespoke Treasures. 

Brooklyn Slate cheese board with burlap storage sack and chalk. Value = $29.00

5 oz. bottle of Old Town Olive Oil. Value = $11.25

5 oz. bottle of Old Town Balsamic Vinegar. Value = $11.25

5.5 oz. Creminelli Casalingo Salami. Value = $9.00

15 oz. jar of Rick's Pick Smokra (pickled okra w/smoked paprika). Value = $11.99

2 oz bag Buffalo Trace Bourbon Brittle. Value = $10.00?? (I couldn't find a value on this so I'm guessing.  It's a big chunk of brittle!)

$10 gift card to Caskers - prices start at $29.99 w/shipping at $9.99 for the first item and $3.00 for each additional items. 

The total value of my Bespoke Post box is $82.49.  That almost double the value of what I paid!  I've been wanting a slate cheese board for a long time, this will be perfect for the holidays!  We eat a lot of salami and enjoy the Creminelli brand. I'm not a fan of okra but again with the holidays coming up I'll wrap some prosciutto around it and voila, instant appetizer!  The directions say you can use the juice as a brine also.  Over all I'm very pleased with this box.  I like having the choice of boxes and if I don't like it I can just skip the month.  Since this box came late I had already received the email for December's box.  I'm very excited about this one too.  Actually all three boxes were pretty cool but  

Verdict: So far I like it.  Great value and great products.
