FANCHEST is a Brooklyn, NY based company that was started in 2015. They curate gift boxes that are themed around a particular sports team and mail them directly to your home. They work directly with the merchandising brands to provide high quality products for their boxes. FANCHEST offers free shipping on orders over $75 in the United States and has a few options for each team depending on the type of gift box you’d like to purchase. The cheapest option typically ranges around $49.00 and the most expensive can be over $200.00 per box. FANCHEST currently offers gift boxes for teams in the NFL, NHL, and NCAA but not all teams are currently represented in these leagues. Additionally, they are working on adding the NBA and MLB. If your team is not represented you can sign up to receive an email once your team is available.
This is where FANCHEST surprises its’ customers. While you may see an image of what’s in the box online when you make a purchase, that isn’t guaranteed to be what you receive. Each box is a little different, but you are guaranteed to receive a specified amount of items based on the option you choose. It can be t-shirts, hats, pennants, blankets, stickers, mini helmets, banners, etc. The options can be endless, but they do state that the boxes are changed up every April and October which allows you to purchase more over time. Additionally, each box includes a Golden Ticket where customers can win VIP experiences, signed memorabilia, and much more. If you’d like to see a video of what items can show up in a FANCHEST, I’ve made a separate review video for you to check out.
Each team will have a variety of options to choose from. After doing some browsing you can see there is something for everyone and their budget. As a reminder, FANCHEST does switch up their boxes throughout the year. So what you see below isn’t necessarily what they’ll have available at the time you visit their website. Here are some examples of the gift boxes:
$55+ value, 4 items, guaranteed hat, FANCHEST Golden Ticket
$90+ value, theme could be golf or tailgating, 5 items related to theme you choose, FANCHEST Golden Ticket
$80+ value, 5 items for babies, BPA-free and exceeds CPSIA and FDA standards
$80+ value, 5 items that are officially licensed merchandise, FANCHEST Golden Ticket
Value varies, 5 items that are officially licensed merchandise, an autographed item with certificate of authenticity, FANCHEST Golden Ticket
There is plenty to like about FANCHEST. They offer high quality sporting apparel and gear at a variety of cost points. In all cases, the value of the box is worth more than you end up paying for. One of my biggest knocks against them is not having all the 4 major American sports leagues covered yet, but that will come in due time. This company is only a few years old and will have so much more growing to do, so I don’t consider this a complete deal breaker. I think the type of products and service they provide far outweigh potential cons. Overall, I would rate FANCHEST at 8.8/10 in terms of products and services offered as these specially curated boxes are a great gift option for the sports fan in your family.
