    2. Or Coffee and a Classic, for the dad who loves a good book as much as a good cup o' joe.

    Coffee and a Classic / Via

    What it is: A box that includes one classic book (choose from classic literature, nonfiction, and children's books), something to sip on (choose from coffee, tea, and hot chocolate), and, depending on your subscription, one to two bookish items, something to snack on, a coffee mug, and a bookmark as well.

    Promising review: "I am trying four different bookish boxes and Coffee and a Classic outshines them all. It is perfectly curated to the book of the month. Best of all they allow you to change the book genre. I am signing up for a year's subscription. Highly recommended to everyone." —Campina

    Price: $25+/month

    3. The Rad Dad Box, an adorable gift that new fathers can enjoy along with their lil' ones.

    Rad Dad Box / Via

    What it is: A dad "starter kit," including artisanal soap, shaving cream, hand sanitizer, dad-themed books and apparel, baby toys, and more; the standard box features three to four items and the deluxe includes five to eight.

    Promising review: "After searching quite extensively to find an appropriate gift for my husband's birthday (who became a father this year to our beautiful baby boy), I found The Rad Dad Box and was sold. What a perfect idea! A heartfelt blend of things for dad, baby, and the two to share together. I subscribed to the deluxe option (absolutely worth it!) and my husband was so touched by the idea, and loves the special gifts each month that add to the bonding time with our son. Not to mention that all the items are very unique— and nothing we've ever seen on the shelves before. Additionally, in a time where customer service is nearly obsolete (and online service practically nil), you're dealing with a family who take the time to email you personally, get some basic details on your child (to help ensure a fitting box!) and check in to make sure you're satisfied. Absolutely fantastic!" —Arie

    Price: $25/month for a standard box or $40/month for a deluxe box; get 15% off a standard box with code BUZZFEED or 15% off a deluxe box with code BUZZFEEDDLX

It really is the perfect amount of treats, toys, and has a few other things I did not even know I needed, like poop bags and really strong and good-smelling wipes.
