I have been meaning to write this review for a few months now. It seems like a hot topic comes up every time I sit down to write it.
I got my first Sprezzabox a while back. Before I talk about what was in the box let me tell you why I joined and became an ambassador.
They offer a monthly subscription for men’s accessories for $28 per month. ($25 if you pay for the full year). In the box, you will get 5-6 items (I got 6 in my first box) that can be used in various ways and scenarios.
As with almost everything I did some research. I saw some great reviews and saw some negative reviews. When I read reviews, I prefer a mix of positive and negative. This gives me a better idea of what to expect.
I read the history of how Sprezzabox came to be. I even looked for pictures of real box deliveries and other reviews like this one.
That’s my nature. Before I commit to a subscription, I do the research.
After all this research I signed up as a customer. After I got my first subscription I signed up to be an ambassador.
My First Sprezzabox
Like most people, I get excited about deliveries. Not over the top waiting at the door for the delivery guy excited but I might check the tracking number once or twice. (There’s no tracking for Sprezzabox).
I should also caution you I have a bit of a sock addiction. I do also like ties and tie clips but it’s the socks that get me. That might be a separate blog post in the future.
I finally got my first box and was not disappointed. In the box was:
- A Tie
- Pair of Socks
- Tie Clip (very interesting one)
- A calligraphy pen
- A notepad (my son stole it)
- A lapel pin
The tie was a classic style grey and white tie that could easily be matched with most shirts. I tend to gravitate towards brighter bolder ties but do have some ties that are a little less bold as well.
I have worn it a couple times since receiving it and have gotten compliments on it.
The socks, it’s like they get me. I love the socks and they’re very comfortable. Who doesn’t love penguins?
The tie clip..another win. This isn’t your average tie clip. It is shaped like a pair of glasses. I wore it to a wedding I went to recently and got several compliments on it.
Now, the calligraphy pen. It might seem like a waste these days but let me tell you about my grandfather.
My grandfather was an artist, a cartoonist, and a calligraphy artist long before computers were in everyone’s home. He taught me to write in calligraphy.
I have not practiced calligraphy for many years and probably couldn’t do it anymore, but the pen brought back some memories. It also gave me an opportunity to talk about my grandfather with my son.
The notepad was cool. Nothing special but if you have kids in the house then you know you can never have enough paper. I’m the guy who stocks up on composition notebooks during back to school sales because they’re only $.50.
Isaiah appreciates the notepad more than I do.
I have not really found a use for the lapel pin yet. It’s still sitting on my nightstand.
All in all, I think it was a good haul. The tie and the socks would easily cost more than $28 at a retail outlet. I lose tie clips all the time, so another tie clip is great, especially one that no one else I know has.

The Sprezzabox Store
They also have an online store. You don’t have to wait for your monthly subscription. You can order some great men’s accessories from their store. I have not placed a separate order yet but they have some great looking items on the site.
The prices are very reasonable for what they offer. It’s your standard men’s accessories, the same that you would receive in your monthly box. It’s a great way to go shopping without going shopping.

Since I felt that the first arrival was well worth the $28 and after reading other reviews it seemed logical that I sign up as an ambassador.
Ambassador is a fancy word for an affiliate in this case. Essentially all it means is that I get paid a few dollars if you use my referral link to sign up.
I wrote in a previous blog post that I would not become an affiliate for anything that I don’t personally recommend. That is the case here. I personally recommend and have recommended Sprezzabox to others.
Let’s be clear here. I am by no means a fashionista. My wife has to “assist” with most of my clothing choices for events that require some level of dressing up.
What you get easily justifies the cost. I am normally a casual guy but do have occasions to wear a tie and jacket. The socks are a different story. I have tons of socks and wear them no matter what the OOTD is. My wife sometimes questions my sock selection when I am wearing shorts. I just respond with I am a dad.
I have also had very public sock wars on Instagram and Facebook. I once dragged my son into one. You win some, you lose some. I play to win!
I would recommend Sprezzabox to anyone who has a need for cool dress socks, ties and tie clips. I cannot wait to see what future boxes hold.
This also makes a great gift for that special guy in your life!

Wow what fun, nice things are those. I also receive a box with surprises products but then make up related
Have fun with it. Thanks for sharing.
What an awesome box! I can imagine when my Dad was working at his old company he would have loved something like this as he often went for silly socks and a really good tie!
That box looks like the perfect one for dads! The socks are super cute and the whole look of the box is super fancy!
Thank you very much for such useful information! Very nice box and packaging
I wanted to look into this for my husband, so I am very thankful to see a review on it. My husband wears ties on Sundays for church, so he always loves getting new ones.
My husband loves ties and this would be a box for him. I might have to swipe those cute socks for me.
This is an awesome box, I should get my husband to have one I am sure he would love it.
What a fabulous box! My husband would probably like it. I really like that tie and socks. I’ve always been a fan of subscription boxes!
Very cool! I had no idea this was an option for men! I like the premise of the Sprezzabox and would probably purchase one for a male family member.
Men like boxes too!!
I love the classic style grey and white tie and it suit most occasion and even in office. The socks look so cute too. This would be a good xmas present for men.
Thanks for this information! I have never heard of this before, but it’s great. Cute that your box came with a calligraphy pen! That adds such a nice touch!
Even I like boxes. But more than that, I got to know now there is a product box which is for men for office wear. Even socks are adorable. Would recommend to all freshers who are going to start a job.
OMG what a great box of the men in peoples lives! This is so awesome. Thanks for sharing
This is the first time I am hearing of the Sprezzabox. What a fun subscription for men! The penguin socks are (manly) cute. I am a sucker for anything penguin. But the tie clip in the shape of glasses is my favorite. Although…if you are looking for your glasses some wiseacre is going to tell you they are on your tie. 🙂
I do like penguins..in a manly way of course.
Great review. I really love the items you get in Sprezzabox, they definitely will smarten any man up. Great and innovative idea!
What I appreciate most about the Sprezzabox is the fact that it contains men’s must-have accessories so definitely, this should be among the men’s favorite boxes. The tie is just so classic!
Such smart sleek packing and cool collection of stuff. Gonna gift myself one of these!
Looks like an awesome box! Love the tie and the glasses pin, so fashionable! This would be a fantastic groomsmen gift, I have a few friends getting married next year that I can recommend this to.
This looks like a great box. I’ve never heard of subscription box for men before but I like the items in the box.This is such a cool idea for working man!
I have never heard of the Sprezza Box before, but I love it! I love that they came out with a fashion box that is targeted toward men. I seem to always see the fashion boxes but they are almost always for women. I’ll have to look into this for the guys in my life. Thanks for sharing!
I am discovering that there are things out there for men that are not well known. I really like that I get a tie and socks, plus more every month without going to the store.
