The 10 Best Geeky Subscription Boxes That Are Worth It (Adults and Kids)

There are lots of subscription boxes out there for geeks and fandoms. But which ones are worth it? Which one is right for you?

We often recommend products we like. If you buy anything through our links, we may earn a commission at no extra cost to you.

It's been a decade since subscription boxes made a splash in America, and while the novelty factor may have worn off, it doesn't seem like they're going away any time soon. Truth is, many still love subscription boxes.

With each box, you get a random assortment of themed contents—and, generally speaking, the value of the contents often exceed the monthly price of the subscription. If not, you're usually paying for something special beyond just the price tag of the contents (like exclusive or rare items).

For geeks, there are lots of subscription boxes out there and it can be overwhelming. We're here to help you choose the best geeky subscription box that's perfect for you—or even your kids!

10. Geeky T-Shirt Club

Box frequency: 1 box per month

Box contents: 1 geeky graphic t-shirt, screen-printed by hand

Box pricing: $30 per box (cheaper with multi-month plans)

Geeky T-Shirt Club is pretty simple: you get a new geeky t-shirt shipped to your door every month. These geeky t-shirts can involve anything from chemistry, biology, math, technology, or pop culture.

The t-shirts are pretty cool, but we're ranking it at the bottom of our list because the price is more expensive than we'd like.

Did you know there are subscription boxes available on Amazon? The Funko Marvel Collector Corps Box is one of the best.

Unlike most subscription boxes, this one ships every two months. Why? Because they want to make sure each box contains the best of the best—exclusive products straight from Marvel and Funko.

In fact, every single box contains a special Marvel Funko Pop that you won't be able to find anywhere else. If you're a Funko collector, you don't want to miss out on this one! The other stuff is icing on top.

More Geeky Subscription Boxes

Getting a box of cool stuff every month is great because the fun is in the surprise. Sure, you could go on Amazon and order t-shirts and collectibles on your own every month, but that just doesn't have the same appeal.

And the mysterious fun of subscription boxes goes beyond the fandom-related boxes in this article. As a geek, you might find that puzzle-based "escape room" subscription boxes are more your style:
