The Ultimate Geek Subscription Gift List

My favourite kind of gifts to give are gifts that keep on giving - monthly box subscription gifts.

Subscription boxes are truly the best gifts you can give. Here five reasons: 

1. Subscription gifts range from small to large. You can get a single box, or a 3, 6 or 12 months subscription of bigger boxes, matching every budget. 

2. The best gifts are gifts that a person would never buy for themselves. This fits perfectly on gift subscription boxes.

3. You can gift them without knowing much about a person. There are even gift boxes that you do not need to know anything about a person at all, but contain general useful and interesting items.

4. If you go for subscriptions, your gift receiver gets a gift regularly, being reminded about your generosity. Let them not forget. So if there is something in the box they don't need, they know who to share with...

5. You cannot go wrong with a subscription box. Seriously, there will be SOMETHING the person likes within the subscription box galaxy, and within the dozen boxes they will receive.

Find here a total of 84 subscription boxes for the modern geek to chose from.
