GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – March 2015 SIde

This is a perfect trinket bowl for my desk, and I love the color! (I’m not sure if there will be variations for subscribers, but if there are, I will probably try to swap for the gold and silver verion!)

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – March 2015 Tote

Prana Market Tote – Value $5

This is one of my favorite items in the box – I just love getting totes in subscription boxes! It’s wider than your typical tote (19 inches across), and it is very well made as well. I’m actually surrpised it retails for only $5! I would have guessed at least $10 or $15.

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – March 2015 Rice

Lotus Foods Volcano Rice – Value $4.69

This rice contains a blend of organic red and brown rice. Rice is the main grain I cook, so I’m excited to try a new variety!

GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box Subscription Review – March 2015 Nibs

Sweet Riot Cocao Nibs – Value $3.75

EcoLips Lip Balm in Cocoa Vanilla Nut – Value $6

These chocolate covered cocao nibs are delicious and dairy-free! I’ve been eating them straight out of the container, but I’m sure they would make a great dessert topping as well.

I really like the flavor of this lip balm too. Unfortunately I must have opened it the wrong way because I managed to remove all of the outside tube packaging, but I was able to fix it to almost 100%. (It’s a push-up tube, and the outer part of the tube disconnected from the inner part).

Verdict: This box has a value of about $45. I’m happy with the value for the monthly cost, and I love that everything is fair trade. Plus I’ll use absolutely everything this month!

What do you think of the March GlobeIn Artisan Box?

  1. This is a very nice subscription box ! Though maybe you should change the information on it being US only since they do ship to Canada (and maybe worldwide?).

    • Hi Pao-Lan,

      Thank you for noting the shipping info! You are right, we do ship internationally (additional $15 and $12 to Canada).

      Liz has correct information about our subscription on our box profile in MSA Subscription Box List.

      Please leave us a review there!

  2. I wonder if you can still buy the March box? The website says orders placed after the 15th will receive the next box, but today is the 15th…

    I hope I can swap for the basket at least! 🙂 I love this month’s!

    • Liza here from GlobeIn. You can still order the box today. However, we are very low on Sustain box inventory. And the baskets come with each Artisan Box!

      • When will shipping start for the rest of us? I signed up last month and was wondering when the notices will go out? thanks

        • Hi Michelle,

          We ship the boxes around the 15th of every month. We are shippong out “Sustain” boxes tomorrow!

          • thanks! So, that is what this box is (in the review?) Hopefully, I will get my notice tomorrow..thanks

        • Michelle,

          If I am not mistaken Genna has already answered you. If you have ordered before the end of the day on March 15th you will receive the Sustain Box within the next few days and should have received the notification today!

  3. I can’t wait to get mine!!! I’m hoping for a silver or gold bowl, but all the colors are so pretty.

  4. Oh man, I was on the fence about getting this, and now I’m so sad I didn’t! I figured that the tote would be rather tiny and with a print I wasn’t fond of (I love the one you got!), I wouldn’t use the rice… but man, I wish I’d bought it!

    • I ended up going ahead and getting it. I’m excited and hope I get the same blue/white basket as you! And I’m crossing my fingers for the silver bowl!

  5. I’m really hoping for a purple bowl.

  6. This box looks great, I would love to be able to purchase it. Too bad they don’t ship to Canada 🙁

  7. Lovin it. I love the tote but it’s the last thing I need right now. Everything else is awesome!!!
