This box comes with an info booklet – the first page is a letter explaining the theme. Inside each maker and their product is detailed. There’s also details about the fair trade practices, community support initiatives, etc. – it is a feel-good read!
Y’abal Handicrafts Blue Seahorse Pillow Pet – Value $24.95
(Subscribers will receive one of several colors).
Ah – this is so cute! And the flip side of this pillow is made with different fabric swatches for two looks in one:
Sundos Massage Oil Candle with Shea Butter – Value $5
This candle is scented with Lavender essential oil, and it is made with shea butter so you can use it as a massage oil too. (Not sure if there will be variants with the scents – but I love lavender, so I’m happy!)
Handmade Bud Vase from Nepal – Value $12
(Vases will come in the same size and color but in a few slightly different shapes.)
I was expecting a super tiny bud vase when I saw the spoilers, so this is actually a little larger than what I was expecting. (It measures about 4 inches across).
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket. This month the introduced a new square-shaped basket. I love the new design, but I was a little surprised to see no lid! Open storage it is!
Handwoven Bowl from Mexico – Value $10
(colors will vary)
The sides of this bowl are pretty thick – so this bowl is very sturdy for a bowl made with palm leaves!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $64. I think that’s great for a subscription box that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And GlobeIn is really impressing me with their themes and curation each month! Plus that pillow pet is just too cute.
