Because so many people depend on a man for their livelihood — wives, children, bartenders — we’re often too over-scheduled to sample the finer things in life.

Solving that dilemma: Birchbox for Men, a delivery service that ships sample-sized grooming and lifestyle products to your door once per month for only $20.

Run by two Harvard alums, Birchbox curates brands ranging from well-known players (Bulgari, John Varvatos) to upstarts like Ursa Major and Billy Jealousy, and ships a different combo of products every month.

If you like a product, birchbox.com doubles as a shopping destination, allowing you to buy from useful categories like Gym Bag Heroes (eBOOST energy booster, Supersmile whitening toothpaste) and Great Outdoors (Kiehl’s sunscreen, Kor Vida water bottles, etc).

Birchbox also helps you gift the ladies in your life — a service that will save you time, and allow you to depend more on your bartender.
