Bag and Wander is a relatively new subscription box that sends you a box of items great for travel or other on-the-go needs.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Cost: $29.95
The Products: “A package of 5-7 products, selected from unique brands, are paired with the current season that get sent monthly. But don’t fret, they’re versatile enough to be used anytime, anywhere. Well-suited not only for travelers, but young professionals, gym-goers, students, busy moms and jet-setters alike.”

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
This box includes a card detailing the items included. This month’s theme is Happy Camper. (And for October they added some candy corn as a bonus!)
UCO Mini Candle Lantern – Value $13
This is an adorable mini lantern. To give you a better sense of scale – it fits a tea light. Colors will vary for subscribers, and I feel like I lucked out getting black.
F As In Frank Papergoods Deer Matchbox – Value $3
This is an adorable little matchbox – I think it’s a fun addition for the theme.
Sweet Lydia’s Original S’more – Value $4
My husband Eric absolutely LOVED this S’more! It is described as a “Gourmet Vanilla Marshmallow is sandwiched between two graham crackers, covered in milk chocolate,” so I’m not surprised he’s a fan!
Handwoven scarf by Elizabeth Koh – Value $36
A little more about Elizabeth Koh:
With each scarf sold, EK provides housing, education, and a loving home environment to children in Thailand through our partnership with SOS Children’s Villages. Check out this page for more information on our benefit program.
This scarf is a thin, loose weave and should work in almost any climate. We just had some 45-degree weather, so this scarf isn’t looking nearly toasty enough for me, but it will be great for Spring and Summer.
Three Sisters Apothecary Rose & Coconut Milk Bar Soap – Value $3.25
Three Sisters Apothecary makes the best soaps! I don’t always like rose scents, but this one is a winner for me!
I never thought I’d say this, but I really like the scent of this insect repellent! I can’t weigh in on its insect repelling yet, but it isn’t human repelling! (If you love lavender, I think you’ll love it).
Also, I signed up for a 3-month subscription to take advantage of their free Baggu promo they had earlier this month:
But the free gift changed:
Here is the new free gift:
Tricoastal Design Cat Tote Bag – Value $12
I appreciate that they replaced a cat tote with a cat tote! This one is adorable too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $64 (not counting the value of the tote since it was a new subscriber promo item). I think that value is great for this type of box, and I really enjoyed this box even though I’m not a camper at all (I’m not even a glamper!).
