Geek Subscription Boxes Like Loot Crate

Geeky Subscription Boxes

A lot of people love geek and fandom-related things. They also love getting fun things in the mail. These geek crates offer the best of both worlds!

Here’s how it works: you subscribe to the service for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. Then, every month, they mail you a box of geeky goodies. These boxes contain things from many different fandoms — superheroes/villains, popular TV shows, anime, video games and more.

Typically, the box will have a couple of plastic figurines, a graphic tee and other apparel, plushes and more. Some companies have thematic boxes (i.e. a Marvel-themed box) and some just throw in a little bit of everything, like D-20 dice and shot glasses. Usually, you don’t know what’s inside until you open the box.

Geek crates make great presents. You may know someone who likes anime, but not have any specifics beyond that. Sending them an anime-themed box guarantees they’ll like something in it! Go above and beyond with a several-month subscription, surprising them with goodies even when the birthday/holiday is long gone.

Let’s look at some specific boxes.
