Racking your brain for the best holiday gift to give your husband this year? If your husband is nerdy at all, I have a suggestion!
Editor’s note: The best husband gift would ACTUALLY be an apple watch (according to my husband) but that may not be in the budget this holiday season! Sorry honey! 🙂
The idea I’m sharing with you today is only $19.99 for one month (price goes down when you subscribe for more than one month!). Drum roll please …..
Nerd Block is a monthly subscription box of gear, toys, and collectibles for nerds and geeks. My husband wanted to try out a subscription box for a long time and I finally signed him up as a Father’s Day gift. There are other similar subscriptions on the market, like Loot Crate and the Marvel Collector Corps. But the big selling point on Nerd Block, for my husband, was that it comes with a guaranteed t-shirt in every box. He loves t-shirts and has grown a nice collection of unique shirts through Nerd Block that he wears to the gym. I took a picture of just a few of his t-shirts. Some of them I don’t understand, which means I’m not “nerdy” enough. 🙂
Nerd Block comes in 5 different varieties – Classic, Arcade, Sci-fi, Horror, and Comic. We get the Classic. There are also Nerd Block Jr’s available in boy and girl editions. You can switch boxes at any time. So technically, during a three-month subscription period, we could have tried Classic, Sci-fi and Horror for example. Each month’s block has a theme that is announced in advance. Nerd Block also does a great job of sending out email hints and teasers about upcoming boxes, so you have an idea of what to expect.
We don’t always love every item in the box, but again, the exclusive t-shirt alone is usually worth it. And the less exciting items end up as toys for our toddler, so it’s fun for the whole family! Best items we have received so far over the last few months have been an IronMan keychain, a Star Wars plush, collectible figurines from the movie Alien, and some fun Ghostbusters toys.
It’s always fun to get a box of goodies in the mail, and the surprise element makes it extra special. We are expecting our November box in a few days actually, and I’ll do an un-boxing post when it arrives.

Editor’s note 2: The apple watch link is part of Amazon’s associates program. If you buy an apple watch for your husband through the affiliate link I won’t tell my husband (he’d be too jealous), but a small portion of the sale will go into an “apple watch savings” jar for him. 😉
