It’s been a while since I got a Bespoke Post box, but I chose their Weekender box last month in anticipation for a trip to Chicago. I love that Bespoke Post is supposed to be geared towards a male audience, but the products end up being pretty gender neutral (like things for the home). It’s a great box that my boyfriend and I both look forward to!
Their skip policy is fantastic, because you can preview the entire box and skip the month if I don’t like any of the options. They also send out email reminders, and you have until the 5th of the month to decide. It’s $45/month, which is pricey but the very easy skip policy makes it less intimidating. Plus, all their items are very high quality and they have spectacular customer service. You can return the entire box for a refund if you don’t like it, and they’ll even cover the return shipping. If you’re interested in trying (highly recommend!), you can take 30% off your first box with promo code LONELY!
The bag is held closed with two old fashioned leather straps. I thought it was a really cool feature and it gave the bag a very distinct look, but I can see how it would be annoying to undo two buckles each time you wanted something out of your bag.
Sahale Snacks | $0.97 each
Yum! The Cherries, Apples, and Maple Almond blend is amazing. It’s a good thing they carry this brand at my local grocery store, so I can stock up on more. I’m also interested in trying their other blends, they all look delicious.
Freshends Towelette 3 Pack | $2.50
Yes, I can definitely see why this would be useful to have for traveling. The individual packaging is helpful, and it’s easy to tuck a couple of these in a purse discreetly.
Carmex Original Lip Balm | $1.39
A staple in this household! Always good to have another one on hand. I had never actually tried the stick version (we only have the tubs at home), and the stick is so much more convenient! I don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner.
Byrd Hair Pomade | $3.50
I had no idea what pomade was when I got this, but I think it’s kind of like a cross between hair gel and wax. Too bad it won’t get any use with me or my boyfriend. For anyone who does use this stuff, the deluxe sample is a generous size. You’ll definitely get several uses out of it.
Brode Hydration Vitamin Pack of 2 | $4.00
I think this was such an ingenious idea! It’s a vitamin that you take while drinking to help prevent hangovers, because it’s full of electrolytes that your body needs. It’s also good for jetlag and exercise, basically whenever you’re dehydrated. If only it weren’t so expensive…
Since Bespoke gets a lot of custom items made just for their box, it’s hard to put a value on it. In this case, I have no idea what the weekender bag is actually supposed to cost. All I know is that it’s a very high quality bag and I would have paid more than the $45 box cost for it. Plus the bonus bag of goodies is worth $13.33! With the 30% off coupon, this box would only be $31.50, and that is a total steal. I was able to stuff 3 days worth of clothing and other miscellaneous items into my weekender bag, and bring it as my carry-on piece to Chicago. The bag held up wonderfully, was easy and comfortable to carry, and I felt pretty darn stylish. I even got complimented by the TSA agent!
