Do you have those people in your life where you have no idea what to get them for their birthday? I have plenty. But, I’m a very lucky girl who has a boyfriend who’s the easiest person in the world to buy for. He’s one of those people who has around 15 hobbies on the go and there’s ALWAYS a gadget that he wants. Although it’s a blessing knowing what to get him, everything he wants is pretty pricey.
When I signed up for Glossybox, he got a little bit jealous that I was getting lovely treats through the letterbox every month. So, I decided to find the boyfriend alternative and signed him up for Loot Crate for his birthday for 3 months.
Loot Crate is for geek and gamer buffs and sends 5 or 6 treats each month. Seeing as boyfriend is a self-confessed geek, the box seemed perfect for him. You get various different items in the box; t-shirts, stickers, figures, key rings – all sorts and roughly reaches the value of $40 (about £25).
Each box is themed and July’s theme was Heroes and was Batman orientated. The Geek is generally a Marvel man but it had some really cool items in there
Loot Crate has different subscription options and on it’s own is priced at $29.95 (£19 roughly). To make it cheaper, there’s loads of promotion codes across the net so if you do a bit of digging – you can get it cheaper! It comes from America and that includes all the shipping costs too. If you are struggling to find someone a gift, it’s worth subscribing too as they have some really cool gifts. If you order the month by month subscription, you can cancel at anytime.
