Nerd Block is like BirchBox for people who prefer pop culture to makeup. The idea is a simple subscription service, just like many others: for $20 a month (plus shipping), you receive a box filled with delightfully nerdy goodies. An exclusive t-shirt is included every month, alongside 5 or 6 toys, accessories or collectibles.
Nerd Block is filled with toys and collectables [sic] from your favorite brands including Star Wars, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, Marvel, and many more! Every box is loaded with various genres to appeal to everyone from video game and movie fanatics, to toy and comic collectors. Each item is Geek Tested, Nerd Approved!
If you like surprises (or know someone who does), Nerd Block subscriptions are currently open. The next box ships in just under 3 weeks, then every month after that on the 15th, until you cancel.
Unlike other subscription services, there do not appear to be any options for customization. For example, if you enjoy comics but aren’t really into games, you can’t request a box that caters more closely to your interests. However, the idea is a great one and Nerd Block certainly fills a niche not yet addressed by any other companies (as far as we know — feel free to chime in on your favorite geeky gift boxes in the comments).
