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!
Olive Wood Spatula by Le Souk Olivique from Tunisia – Value $10
This spatula is even better than I was expecting based on the spoiler pictures! It measures about 12 inches long, and the olive wood is so beautiful!
Olive Wood Spreader by Le Souk Olivique from Tunisia – Value $7
This knife measures about 7 inches long and looks great with the spatula. I like that GlobeIn included two matching pieces in this box. (Maybe we can get more in future boxes!)
Argan Project Amlou Argan Almond Butter – (6 oz) Value $9
This spread is really good! (Like, eat straight out of the jar good). It is made with almonds, argan oil and honey. The almonds aren’t fully ground, so the texture is almost more like a topping than a butter. GlobeIn recommends using it with fruit or on toast, and I’m sticking by my eat it out of the jar recommendation, too!
Block Print Trivet (India) – Value $10
(Colors/prints will vary)
This is the item that I originally thought would be the bowl from the Benefit Basket spoiler. (Sorry for any confusion – up until this month, all Benefit Baskets featured an item from the Artisan Gift Box, so a spoiler for the Benefit Basket would also mean a spoiler for the Artisan Gift Box). That being said, this is a useful item, but I personally would have preferred to see the bowl in this box.
(Alternatively, this means that potentially subscribers can subscribe to both subscriptions without overlap, so I definitely see the benefit to that!)
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
And each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $48. I think that’s good for a subscription box that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And as always, GlobeIn impresses me with their themes and curation each month!
What do you think of the February 2016 GlobeIn Artisan box? What do you think of the change in Benefit Basket vs Artisan Gift Box for this month (AKA no overlaps)?
