What’s the best subscription box for tech lovers?

Subscriptions boxes are a fun way to treat someone special (or yourself) to a gift that keeps on giving. As you may already know, a subscription box is a box that contains an assortment of products that, typically, share a common theme, such as a beauty box or a kid’s box. These boxes are automatically delivered periodically (some are monthly, some are quarterly, etc.) for the subscription’s length.

If there is a tech lover in your life who you’ve had to buy for in the past, keep reading. Techies are hard to find gifts for, and if you know this from experience, technology subscription boxes may be just the thing to ease your mind the next time the techie ends up on your gift list.

Breo Box

Breo Box is a seasonal subscription service for both men and women filled with unique tech, gadgets, home goods, fitness products, and more. All products are hand-packed with enhancing your lifestyle in mind. Once every three months, a new box will show up at your door brimming with items that you never knew you needed but now don’t know how you lived without. If you want to get an idea of the types of products you’ll receive in a Breo Box, you can check out the Past Boxes section on the website. Here, you will see the contents of past subscription boxes, such as the OXO Sweep & Swipe Laptop Cleaner or The Bed Scrunchie.

You can gift Breo Box to someone or sign up to receive the quarterly box yourself by visiting the website and picking one of the plans. You can also choose a one-time-only box if you don’t want to commit to a subscription. Of course, you’ll get a discount if you sign up for the subscription service, and longer durations of subscriptions see more significant savings.

Creation Crate

Tech lovers come in all shapes, sizes, and ages, so it makes sense that not all technology subscription boxes are for adults. Creation Crate is a subscription box that you can get monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, and it comes to your door full of everything you need to conduct your own lesson in electronics and C++ programming. Each project comes with all of the commands and components to complete a hands-on project that will prepare your child for the jobs of tomorrow. Each project line combines STEM projects with online educational courses to create real-world experiences. These projects are great for parents and children to complete together, especially since the boxes get progressively more difficult as you move along.

Gadget Discovery Club

The Gadget Discovery Club proudly states that its “mission is to upgrade your entertainment and lifestyle with innovative, new gadgets.” Unlike most subscription boxes, you only get one item in each Gadget Discovery Club box, but the website claims it will be epic. Other than the number of items in each box, the rest of the process is similar to all other subscription box services. You start the process by choosing who the package is for (yourself, a family member, or a friend), rating the recipient’s tech-savvy level, and determining how often you want a box to come (12-month plans, six-month plans, and monthly plans are available). After you’re signed up, a box with one expertly-selected, state-of-the-art gadget including smart home devices, wearables, smartphone gadgets, and more will show up, and you (or the person you sent the box to) will experience the excitement of unboxing a new tech gadget.

Subscription boxes are fun – the anticipation of knowing you’re going to receive a package soon is exciting, and then the unboxing to reveal what you got is even more thrilling. If you’ve never experienced one before, you should order one of the above boxes for yourself and experience the bliss yourself. If you already know that feeling, send your favorite tech lover one of these boxes for their next gift, and they won’t be disappointed.
