#4 Best subscription boxes for dad: Tinkering

  • Real tools. Things you can use again and again.
  • Timeless skills. Hobbies that will last a lifetime.
  • Complete kits. No running to the store to pick up the last thing you need.
  • New projects. Every month you get a chance to try your hand at something different.
  • Clear guidance. Instructions and patterns for everyone from beginners to experienced craftsmen.

#5 Best subscription boxes for dad: Other fun

Comic Mystery Box

A lot of men are into retro collections… Would this be something your guy would love?

Get 16 collector’s comics – new issues, back issues, #1 issues, and variants. At least $60 worth of comics in every box. All comics are first prints in new condition. Message us a list of your favorite characters and we’ll try to include them. Best value of any comic box – don’t settle for less than 16 comics! Best gift for comic book fans!

  • At least $60 worth of comics in every Comic Mystery Box
  • Tell us your favorite characters and we’ll try to include them in your box.
  • Some comics date back 30-40 years. Vintage, baby!
  • Bonus – Exclusive monthly newsletter for comic book fans included!
  • Why settle for less than 16 comics? Get the best value with Comic Mystery Box!

The Conundrum Box

If challenges and games are something that dad loves, this box has a fun puzzle in each box.

Your Adventure Awaits… Get a monthly adventure shipped right to your door! Part Escape room, part choose-your-own adventure, wind your way through fun and exciting narratives by solving puzzles with your family and friends. Immerse yourself in different story environments through music, food, history, fiction, and drink recommendations.

  • “A fantastic and clever cure to boredom!” An escape room-in-a-box experience that you can play with friends, family, or by yourself! Play at your own pace or with a timer if you prefer.
  • Items include physical objects to manipulate and solve, puzzles, ciphers, hints, stories, and plenty of material to contemplate. Additional resources include in-theme recipes and drink cards, suggested playlists, and other goodies
  • Unique story-lines that can continue from box to box, but every box has a definite and satisfying ending. You will meet a host of characters from literature and history that will help guide you through your adventure.
  • The boxes contain plenty of items, and no puzzle will require an internet search or outside knowledge. Everything is contained within the box but the internet is required to check codes and progress in the game. NOTE: Games are usually shipped in a themed box that says the game name and The Conundrum Box on it. Due to supply issues caused by the COVID 19 pandemic, at times we may have to substitute a generic shipping box. The game within is completely the same.
  • 1.5 – 3 hours of unique gameplay centered around fun themes and immersive puzzles. International Shipping is available, but due to the current pandemic, shipping overseas tends to be longer than usual. The price of the subscription does not include any taxes or tariffs that a country may charge, those are the responsibility of the recipient.

I encourage you to try different things for fun. And, these boxes are great ways to think outside the box for gift-giving!

This is a great way to support these unique small businesses, and to take gift-giving up a notch! I feel like these subscription boxes for dads fit the bill for GREAT gifts!

One gift that isn’t a subscription, but that my dad and mom love, is their digital picture frame. They ask each month for pics of the kids, and they update the frame. They alway keeps their favorites, but I swear this might be their favorite gift ever!

Other categories of subscription boxes are: gameskids activitiesspiritualdate nightnerds, and pets to name a few…

I hope these suggestions help you find great subscription boxes for dad!
