As longtime fans of subscription service and online creative commerce and discovery hub Birchbox, we were honored to collaborate with them on an exclusive summer box for men. Utilizing their platform, we were able to bring together seven tried and true products that we've come to love—after months (and in some instances, years) of research, exploration and testing. From the entirely artisanal to the uniquely expressive, each product conveys our shared enthusiasm for discovering the best and brightest items available in the midst of all the internet clutter. The Birchbox Man + Cool Hunting Summer Collection just launched and will be available in very limited supply.
Among the contents, you'll find plenty that we at CH use every day. Ursa Major's line of all natural skincare has kept us moisturized and fresh for years. With their Essential Face Wipes, it's never been easier to clean up while on the move. As a complement, their Face Balm offers a touch of life to skin dried from over-exposure to those warm seasonal rays. As we stock our office year 'round with Grady's Cold Brew coffee, the portable Cold Brew Bean Bags lend an on-the-fly alternative—easily allowing anyone the opportunity to make a week's worth of cold brewed iced coffee in advance of road trips, hikes or even a weekend in the backyard. As for one-of-a-kind items, CH personally commissioned Artisan Project beach blankets from Morocco and they are only available in the Summer Collection.
This season, we also helped select items for the Birchbox Man Summer Shop—a must-stop for everyone looking for the latest and greatest in seasonal supplies. In many way, with this limited edition box, we've made the shopping decisions from all of our favorites house there for you—in one inclusive capsule collection. It's a comprehensive gift, or even a treat to enhance your own summer. Altogether, from design to functionality, there's nothing else quite like it.
The Birchbox Man + Cool Hunting Summer Collection LTD box is available online for $88.
