Handloomed Drawstring Backpack by ApiHappi – Value $30
The spoiler picture for this box shows this backpack in blue, so I’m guessing there will be variation in colors for subscribers.
I’ve received a few drawstring backpacks from subscription boxes in the past, and this one is definitely the highest quality one I’ve seen. The fabric is very durable, and the construction is so well-done. (I also love that it has an interior zipper pocket).
At first look, I was a little disappointed in this color choice since I was expecting blue from the spoiler, but the color is growing on me!
Kuli Kuli Crunchy Almond Bar – Value $2
This bar is made with just dates, almonds, agave, and moringa. I’m always excited when a snack in a subscription box is gluten and dairy free, so I tried this right after taking the picture. Unfortunately, this bar was OK enough for me to take a second bite but not to finish it. I think I needed more flavors besides dates and almonds.
Shea Mosquito Repellent by Lulu Life – Value $8
I haven’t gotten a chance to test this out for insect repelling yet, but I like the formula. It’s a shea butter so you apply it like a balm, and the lemon eucalyptus scent is refreshing.
Mr. Ellie Pooh Travel Journal – Value $15
This journal is made with elephant dung that is bailed, sanitized, and pulped. The result is a clean, odorless, eco-friendly paper. (I even had my dog give it a sniff test to verify the odorless part!)
And the pages even say “Printed on Elephant Dug Paper” on every sheet!
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 value of about $67. I think the value is good, especially considering the items included support fair trade. And I think they did a good job with the Wander theme this month too.
