Elevita January 2018 Review
Once again, everything arrived in this lovely cotton drawstring bag! Such a nice bonus!
This is the letter I received in my package this month, detailing the contents. I especially appreciate the detail it provides about the artisans who created this month’s handicrafts. It gives it such a special, personal touch!
Wooden Spatula, Philippines
I recently decided to try and use more wooden utensils for cooking, and this spatula is just beautiful! It’s really finely crafted, definitely a quality piece. It was made by a wood carver in the Philippines as a way to support his ten children!
Beaded Photo Holder, Philippines
I feel like I receive a piece just about every month from this single mother in the Philippines, so I like to imagine she is prospering as a result of her partnership with Elevita! This lovely bead holder is just right for holding a 3″x4″ photo on my desk. It’s very pretty.
Mini Heart Baskets, Philippines
These tiny hand-woven wicker hearts are so pretty! They are just precious for Valentine’s Day! The only thing is, they *appear* to be sort of glued together in the back and do not really feel like they could be opened very much to put treats inside. But, if I were to get them open, they are about the right size to put a couple of chocolate kisses inside.
The Verdict: Elevita is awesome! I really appreciate everything they do to help global artisans, and I love feeling like I’m a part of that. This month’s items were all great! I especially love the spatula. I can’t often find values for the items Elevita sends, but I always feel like the value far outstrips the cost of the box. $30 for these lovely items is a steal!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box. Order by the 18th to get the current month’s box.
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $30 with free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $10.
