What is a Bunky Box?

The Unique Gift Box for Any Occassion

If you follow along with us on Instagram or Facebook, you likely have seen glimpses of gift bundles described as our one-of-a-kind Bunky Boxes.  A Bunky Box is a specially curated, wonderfully unique assortment of goodies picked specifically for the recipient- whether that is a friend, co-worker, lover, or yourself!

We have always been experts at helping our customers find the perfect gift from our Downtown Phoenix outpost,  but then we thought, "How great would it be if we could make the gifting process even easier?"

Your Bunky Box can be tailored to fit any occasion, whether it be a baby shower, birthday, housewarming, or a simple "thinking of you" gift. We request that you complete a simple questionnaire so that we can get it just right! Have a long to-do list? Let us assemble Bunky Boxes for your upcoming conference, retreat, or welcome party. 

By (1) selecting your price and (2) completing our brief questionnaire, you will have successfully gifted the perfect present! Really, it's that simple. 

Bunky Boxes start at $50 and can be shipped anywhere in the United States. If you would like us to write a message on your behalf, we will include a complimentary greeting card.

Beard Tips from the Experts at The Bearded Bastard

Many of you, our fantastic customers, have been regularly picking up your Bearded Bastard grooming products at Bunky for some time now. Maybe your go-to product is a vial of beard oil, moisturizing beard balm, soothing shave oil, or a combination of those. Maybe you have carefully inspected these items but are not quite sure which is best for you. Or maybe you are needing tips on starting that beard of your own! The great people over at The Bearded Bastard answered some of their customers burning questions, which we have shared below: 

  • How do I grow an awesome beard?

According to the BB team, beard growth comes down to genes, overall health, and how well you take care of your beard. Over time, a healthy beard regimen will coax along healthy facial hair, but there's no shortcut to getting there. Here are some of their key tips:

Looking for a gift? Pick up a Beard Oil Travel Pack with 5 fragrance samples!

Looking for a gift? Pick up a Beard Oil Travel Pack with 5 fragrance samples!

  1. Eat Healthy: A diet rich in nutrients and whole foods is more likely to promote healthy beard growth. Check out foods rich in magnesium (kale and salmon), copper (like prunes), silica (like bananas), iron (like spinach), and nuts for healthy oils. 
  2. Don't Overwash: Soap is the enemy of a healthy beard. Wash every few days depending the hair type. 
  3. Use a Good Brush: Combs can pull hair out whereas a brush is designed specifically for coarse hair so you can shape and train without pulling any out. 
  4. Use Beard Oil or Balm: A well-made beard oil that is designed to restore a beard's natural health and shine is it's best friend. You can recommend our products to your clients as the plant-based oils in our beard oils and balms are formulated to replicate a guy's body chemistry, moisturizing his skin and hair without leaving it greasy. 
  • How do I get the most out of my products?

The Bearded Bastard recommends damp drying the beard after showering, shake a couple drops of oil into your hand or scoop out a nickel-sized amount of balm, work it into your hand, and then pull it through the hair.

Try these other great grooming products from the Bearded Bastard, Verano Bathery, and Baxter. Mix and match for a customized dopp kit, perfect for gifting!
