Special Delivery

Four subscriptions that give you a reason to look forward to picking up the mail.

Moisturizer, flowers, unmentionables, ties. Ingredients for a night of fun, or maybe the contents of your mailbox? Luxury subscription services are on the rise, and here are our favorites to help you think inside the box:

Birchbox allows you to stay primed and proper with beauty samples (think Dior, Guerlain, and Atelier Cologne) for $10 a month. It’s the perfect end-of-summer hostess gift… Still making up for that anniversary you missed five years ago? Get on her good side and request H.Bloom to deliver fresh flowers to her job bimonthly, monthly, or weekly… Feeling dainty? Sign up to receive a pretty panty— wrapped in tissue and paired with a handwritten card—monthly with Panty By Post… And if you’re a dapper dude, subscribe to Doyle + Mueser and receive custom-tailored shirts delivered to your door. Get four shirts quarterly for $1,300, one shirt bimonthly for $1,800, or one shirt every month for $3,300.
