GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – February 2015
The GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box is a monthly subscription that sends you original crafts by global artisans. Each box contains handcrafted items from around the world and the stories of the artists who made the pieces.
GlobeIn recently changed their format so that there’s only one box variation and each box contains more items and has an overall higher value!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This is the first look of the items in the box – most of the items come in this reusable yellow basket:
The Box: the GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box
The Cost: $29.99/month, with $5 shipping to US and $15 shipping worldwide
COUPON: Limited Time Only! Save 25% ($7.50) off your first box with coupon code KITCHEN

The box comes with a fold out card including a letter from the GlobeIn team, a Vanilla Yogurt Parfait recipe, and backgrounds on each of the makers featured in the box:
Boca Java Javanica Ground Coffee – (Sampler) Value $2.50
Natierra Fair Trade Pink Salt (Fine) – Value $6?
This ground coffee isn’t labeled with a size, but looking at their site it looks like the 2 oz sampler pack. (It smells amazing).
Lately, I feel like I’ve been reading more and more recommendations to swap out table salt with pink salt, (usually Himalayan), so I’m happy with this InkaSalt addition to the box!
LaFaza Pure Madagascar Bourbon Ground Vanilla – 1 oz Value $12
Big Tree Farms Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (3 Packets) – Value $.50?
This vanilla is made with just 100% Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. It smells amazing will be perfect to blend with coffee or for baking.
This sugar is new to me, and I really like it – the taste is fantastic. It’s also popular on Amazon thanks to it being naturally low on the glycemic index.
Greenheart Sobremesa Hand Painted Spice Tagine – Value $13
This covered pinch pot for spices is available in four different colors, so I’m guessing there will be variation in this item with subscribers. I was happy to read this about the product materials: “The glazes used are 100% lead and cadmium free, making this products safe for both the artisans who create them and your home.”
Greenheart Handwoven Kitchen Towel – Value $14.50
This kitchen towel is made with 100% cotton, and measures 24″ x 30″. It’s a very practical item for me, so while it isn’t too exciting, it will get used a lot, and I like adding more fair trade items to my home!
Verdict: The value of this box is about $49 (and that’s not counting the value of the basket the items come in). I really like that this box included fair trade food items in addition to home items – it is a perfect mix for the kitchen theme.
