Whether you’re just a fan of books or looking for an unusual gift for a friend, there are some awesome sites available that will send a box of book/geek goodness to your door. Here are some of my favourite:
For this one, you can buy back-dated boxes through PayPal, but not the subscription boxes. For that you’ll need a credit card. Inside each box, you’ll get a variety of geek related items. Here are a few already on offer:
(This was February’s offer) (Limited Edition ‘Breaking Bad’ Box)
Prudence and Crow is different. As a book-box website, you can get an awesome set of gifts: a vintage paperback, a book bag, bookplates, a bookmark and surprises. All in a handy box that will come through your letterbox. And they accept PayPal, which I love. You can buy a one off box or a subscription.
This box of goodies is a surprise in a big box. You’ll get a “theme” of books and book related swag in one shipment, but you’ll never know what’s inside until you open it. They don’t do genre themes, only themes like shown below. You can buy a one month box or a subscription. At the moment, it’s only available in the US and Canada, but I have it on good authority that they’re going to roll out International shipping this year, hopefully by April.
