GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – June 2015 Spread

Canaan Sun-Dried Tomato Caper Spread – Value $8

Canaan Za’atar (Thyme) with Roasted Sesame Seeds – Value $8

I’m excited that both of these items are dairy and gluten free! The spread will be great with crackers, and I’m thinking of trying the spice mix with chicken. Canaan Fair Trade also has some recipes suggestions.

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – June 2015 Flags

Matr Boomie Bunting – Value $14

This is my favorite item in the box – I love the idea of having a permanent fabric party decoration always on hand!

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – June 2015 Coasters

Aban Christabel Coasters – Value $12

These coasters have hand-dyed batik on one side, and recycled plastic on the other side:

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – June 2015 Basket

Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12

Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket. (I think I get a different color each month – they’re great for storage).

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $54. I think that’s a good value for the $35 cost, especially considering that these products support fair trade. Also, I think GlobeIn has been doing a great job at themes lately. What do you think of the June GlobeIn box?

  1. This box was great! Everything arrived intact. Huge fan.

  2. I loved this month, but I do wish there had been one more item to round it out. The za’atar was so perfect because I had been meaning to buy some! I would have been great if they had included the bottle stopper from the June promo in everyone’s box!

  3. So….did anyone else Sun-dried Tomato Spread shatter in the box, infesting their condo lobby with ants? I came home from a long day of work and had to go to the store to buy ant killer and clean up dead ants and oil off the vestibule floor in my condo. I understand that mistakes happen during shipping but the packaging was so minimal for a large jar of glass filled with oil…Definitely not having a good day. Let alone that I had to throw the entire box away as it was covered in ants and oil 🙁 I was SOOOOOO excited about this company too, I have been so impressed with their past boxes so I finally decided to bite the bullet. Boo

    • UPDATE! I emailed GlobeIn and got an almost immediate response. Liza with GlobeIn was amazing and handled by perhaps over-reaction (I had had a long day) with grace and positivity. I’m sticking with GlobeIn mostly because of the great CS I just received!

      • Sometimes it is a bad day. It’s nice to read that Liza was able to help you. All my interactions with Globein have been positive. Hope tomorrow is a much better day with no ants!

    • That sucks! I’m so sorry that happened to you

  4. Hmmmm I’m still waiting on my shipping notice for mine this month. Wonder if the rest of them haven’t been shipped yet?

    • Hi Aimee,

      Can you please shoot us an email support (at) globein (com). All the boxes have been shipped out yesterday. You might also want to check your spam folder in case our email went there.

      • Thanks Liza! Just sent an email 🙂

  5. This is my last of the three month subscription I purchased, and I decided to cancel. The only item I like in here is the coasters. All three months have included food, which is not a good fit for me.

  6. I love GlobeIn, but this one is a total miss for me. Oh well. Can’t like ’em all, I guess.

    • Hi Taz – I’m sorry you didn’t like this box. I’d love to hear your feedback so we can improve. Can you shoot me an email? Thanks!

  7. Sadly, I cancelled because of upcoming medical bills. I was planning to use the banner with the lanterns from the Prospurly box (which I also cancelled).

    • Anna, hi! I am overloaded with “stuff” at the moment, subscribe to both boxes, and would be more than happy to send you both my lanterns and my flag when I receive my Globein Box. It should arrive sometime this week. Just send me your address ( and I will put them in the mail !

      • That’s so nice of you to do for Anna!

        • I agree – so nice of you. I love hearing and seeing these kinds of stories 🙂

          • Yogamom67 – That is kind of you 🙂 I do have the lanterns from Prospurly. It is the June box that I cancelled. I will send you an email!

    • Hi Anna! Sorry to hear about your upcoming Medical Bills. We’re sorry to see you go, but you’re always welcome as a member of the GlobeIn Community. Send me an email with your address so we can put something special in the mail for you.

      • Thank you:) That is very kind of you.
