I just recently discovered "Subscription Boxes" and they make GREAT gifts, either for yourself or someone else! In my next series of posts, I am going to highlight a few of my favorites.
If you need a gift for a Science Fiction fan, let me introduce:
SUPPLY POD FROM OUTER PLACES!
From their website:
- We're announcing a new mystery box program that will allow fans of science and sci-fi to explore a new sci-fi property or scientific theme, in depth, every other month. Supply Pod will deliver entertaining and enlightening merchandise themed around the biggest and most exciting sci-fi and science events, direct to your door.
Long story short, I agreed to chair another silent auction this year. (This is the second one that I've chaired, and I swear it is my last one!) We went back to an "old-school" paper auction this year (another long story) and I'm including this picture because I asked my husband to "test" all of the pens. When he saw this photo, he asked if I noticed his nice job with the pen placement. (I didn't until he pointed it out, but cute, right?)
Anyway, I was trying to come up with some unique items for people to bid on and I wandered down the "subscription box" path. Supply Pod was one of the first to graciously agree to donate to my cause and their limited edition X-Files box promptly arrived in the mail.
As you can see, the box itself is cute.
The X-Files themed box that I received for my auction was full of great things including: Knit Beanie Hat (exclusive), Dana Scully Funko Pop Figure, Truth Detector Card, Comic: The X-Files Season 11 #1, Book: The Real Science Behind the X-Files by Anne Simon (autographed), Timeline Poster, and Cell Phone Wallet.
This was a unique and fun box and people enjoyed bidding on it! The kind COO even emailed me after our event to ask me how it went...
So if you need a cool gift for a sci-fi fan, I can unequivocally recommend Supply Pod! The current themed box is "Space Exploration". You can buy just one box or get a multiple pod subscription for a fun surprise every other month.
I'd like to thank Supply Pod again for their donation to our silent auction! A blog post was not a condition or requirement of their donation, but I am happy to provide a positive review anyway. Your sci-fi fan will love this gift...I kid you not!
P.S. If you have a science minded college student, this would also make a GREAT care package!
